The YSL Black Opium fragrance is one of my all-time favourite perfumes, so I’m really excited about the launch of the YSL Black Opium Extreme Eau de Parfum.
YSL Black Opium is definitely a love it or hate it kind of fragrance, but I adore it, especially during the winter months as it is quite strong, but this new incarnation is even stronger, as it’s the Extreme Edition…
“Black Opium with no limits. Extra-black coffee, ultra-white flowers, and an abundance of patchouli. Exhilarating and excessive. Experience YSL Black Opium, the rock couture fragrance for women by Yves Saint Laurent. Addictive, unparalleled in provocation, deliberatively seductive. Starring YSL Beauty global make-up and fragrance ambassador Zoë Kravitz.“
The Eau de Parfum Extreme takes Black Opium’s original captivating floral gourmand scent to a new level – no holds barred. Uncompromising energy and boundless sensuality married with the unique YSL edge.
A shot of adrenaline from extra black coffee is paired with luminous ultra-white flowers, set against a base of sweet, earthy patchouli and heady vanilla.
This exhilarating amalgamation of ingredients makes for an intense and long-lasting women’s scent that challenges gender stereotypes in fragrances.
The YSL Black Opium Extreme Eau de Parfum is available in three sizes,
- 30ml £60 / 1 oz $78
- 50ml £86 / 1.6 oz $104
- 90ml £108 / 3.0 oz $130
The YSL Black Opium Extreme Eau de Parfum is described as being a gourmand fragrance, just like the original, with a warm and spicy composition. Featuring coffee, vanilla bourbon and jasmine keynotes, but I’ll be sure to update this post once more detailed descriptions are shared, but it’s available right now.
