Black Opium Pure Illusion, Yves Saint-Laurent reinvents his bottle

In 1977, Yves Saint-Laurent created one of his greatest perfumes. Named Opium, it aroused as much indignation as fascination, going so far as to create stock shortages as soon as it was released. A new era, a niche fragrance… In 2014, as if to target the consumers of this new century, Yves Saint-Laurent decided to reinterpret this olfactory legend. He then made Black Opium. Just as famous as its predecessor, this fragrance gives us the image of a more rock ‘n’ roll woman, in search of new urban adventures. However, as if to offer them the best of gifts, Yves Saint-Laurent decided to transform the bottle and develop a limited edition called Black Opium Pure Illusion.

The unchanged fragrance of Black Opium

First of all, let’s start by pointing out that the original Black Opium recipe has remained much the same in the new Black Opium Pure Illusion. This limited edition actually only concerns the packaging of the perfume and not its scent itself. Thus, fans of the brand will not be disoriented. Black Opium Pure Illusion still has its oriental and gourmet scent, originally made by Nathalie Lorson, Marie Salamagne, Honorine Blanc and Olivier Cresp. This bewitching nectar plays more exactly on contrasts. It combines darkness and light, creating an intense, caffeine-laden glow. Indeed, something rare enough to be underlined, Black Opium does indeed contain a black coffee accord. This one turns out to be very energizing, especially since it is associated with other spicy vibrations. Its bitterness is nevertheless softened by a bouquet of white flowers. Jasmine reinforces the opulence of the whole, while orange blossom gives it a solar and Mediterranean intensity. A dazzling sight brings a more fruity side to this perfume. Finally, Black Opium Pure Illusion is still wrapped in vanilla, cedar and patchouli for a deeper, syrupy and mysterious finish.

However, its once black opaque surface is now covered with glitter ribbons that sparkle with a thousand lights. These intersect with elegance in pink, crystalline and festive shades. More than ever, Black Opium Pure Illusion seems to have put on its gala outfit. From then on, it seems to be the ideal companion to join you in your nocturnal adventures.
