Yves Saint Laurent Opium - eau de parfum for women

Opium by Yves Saint Laurent - "The opulent decadence of the Eau de Parfum capture the overtly sensual spirit of the original parfum designed by Yves Saint Laurent, only in a lighter spray form. Striking notes of mandarin and bergamot are made mystical with middle notes myrrh and jasmine. A final accord of deep amber laced with Opoponaux imbues the scent with its celebrated rapture. In a chic Chinoiserie-inspired flacon."  --yslbeautyus.com

Art of Glass - Behind fragrance's most iconic bottles.

Time Travel
The most iconic fragrance bottles reflect the hopes and values of the era that inspired them, proving time is truly of the essence.

2015 - YVES SAINT LAURENT Black Opium
The glittery bottle of Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium is less suggestive than the 1977 Opium, which came in a package resembling a medicine case - and prompted boycotts. (They were unsuccessful; it's still a best seller.)

Yves Saint Laurent Opium

Oriental
Heavy, sexy, spicy, and usually wintry -- with a whiff of Middle Eastern souk -- these scents were born to be dabbed on the cleavage.

Yves Saint Laurent Opium
An oriental carried to the incense-y '80s max.

(Van Gelder, Lindsy. "All in the Family." Allure Oct. 2011: 263)
