Black Opium by Yves Saint Laurent 50ml

In September of 2014, Yves Saint Laurent launches Black Opium, the new fragrance announced as a rock’n’roll interpretation of the classic that should highlight the dark, mysterious side of the YSL brand.

Master perfumers Nathalie Lorson and Marie Salamagne, in collaboration with Olivier Cresp and Honorine Blanc, developed the composition.

Notes of coffee, present in large quantities, dominate the scent. Additional accords are pink pepper, orange blossom, jasmine, vanilla, patchouli, and cedar.

The perfume comes in the bottle designed as the last edition of the Opium collection. The bottle is dark and decorated with sequins that give a glam rock look.

The face of the Black Opium by Yves Saint Laurent 50ml’s campaign is British model Edie Campbell, shot by Daniel Wolfe.

We offer NZ’s best prices for a discerning market. Enjoy prices that are a cut above bargain basement and well below department stores. Our fragrances are the genuine article, but it is the integrity or quality of the perfume that matters. There are many reasons why perfumes spoil, often well before they are purchased by the consumer. Heat is the biggest culprit (that we term baked, like wine).


Many perfume discounters use sea freight for a month or so without climate control in a metal container ( New York to Auckland) plus however long they sit on the dock. At Designer Direct we only use Air Freight. Costly but your nose will love you.


The cheaper the fragrance, the less of a bargain you’re getting, and the more likely it was stored with a lack of climate-controlled warehousing. Both our NZ stores where we ship orders from have climate control.
