Opium by Yves Saint Laurent 50ml

Opium is an oriental fragrance, sulfurous and provocative with an iconic silhouette.

Highly erotic, the myrrh drives behind reason, exalts the senses, up to break the rules. The warm amber notes, both precious and sacred, have always exerted their power of seduction.

Opium by Yves Saint Laurent 50ml

Opium Eau de Parfum, the trail of the femme fatale according to Yves Saint Laurent. Enjoy a final accord of deep warm amber notes, laced with Opoponaux in a chic Chinoiserie-inspired flacon.

The original Opium Eau de Toilette was launched in 1977 & was created by perfumers Raymond Chaillan, Jean Amic and Jean-Louis Sieuzac. The flaçon was by Pierre Dinand.

This is the Eau de Parfum release of the original fragrance.

In 2009, Opium was in a new flaçon by YSL Art Director Fabien Baron and Stefan Pilati. The new campaign features the red-headed, English supermodel, Karen Elson.

      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.
