OPIUM EAU DE PARFUM by YVES SAINT LAURENT 50ml

OPIUM EAU DE PARFUM by YVES SAINT LAURENT 50ml 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 exert their power of seduction. 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.

About the Brand

ALL PERFUMES ARE FAR FROM EQUAL

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).

FROM WHOLESALER TO RETAILER

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.

CLIMATE CONTROL

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.
