Opium pour Homme Eau de Toilette, a light seduction
It was in 1961 that Yves Saint Laurent founded his fashion house of the same name, with the help of his friend, Pierre Berger. From then on, he never ceases to make women vibrate, to change things and ideas. In 1977, after a few scandals, YSL unveiled a fragrance with the sulphurous name “Opium” . If the latter is considered a fragrance of debauchery, it is nonetheless one of YSL’s most beloved essences. 18 years later, YSL presents “Opium Eau de Parfum” then “Opium pour Homme Eau de Toilette”, lighter than its predecessor.
Opium for Men, between seduction and mystery
Like its female counterpart, “Opium pour Homme Eau de Toilette” is a mysterious fragrance that does not reveal itself immediately. Bewitching, “Opium pour Homme” is an essence intended for men who like to seduce. Eau de Toilette is lighter than its predecessor, but seduction is still at the heart of “Opium”, the perfume of scandal par excellence.
Opium pour Homme Eau de Toilette, a fresh and spicy character
“Opium pour Homme” is a concentrate of sensuality that combines freshness, woody and spicy notes. “Opium pour Homme” takes off on a multifaceted freshness, namely that of tangerine, lavender and star anise. The heart notes are spicy and similar to those of Eau de Parfum , as they combine Sichuan pepper, ginger and Sichuan pepper. Finally, the base is ultra sensual and combines patchouli, Tolu balm, vanilla and myrrh. The bottle uses the main codes of its predecessor and echoes the Inro, a small box with a medicinal vocation that the Samurai wore hanging from their belts.
A door open to elsewhere. Mystery and sensuality for men.
OPIUM POUR HOMME inaugurates a new relationship between man and his perfume. More than a perfume, it is an art of living, a way of going after oneself.
An absolute of sensuality that combines the freshness of the juice with the depth of spicy and woody tones. Vanilla’s outbursts of subtle sweetness let the mystery of their origin hover, the deep aroma of blackcurrant awakens like an elixir of life. The fire of spices soars in a vibrant harmony with passionate accents and disappears in front of the nobility of oriental woods, symbols of strength, grandeur and immortality.
An oriental harmony with woody and spicy notes.
