What Does Black Opium Extreme EDP Smell Like?
Yves Saint Laurent’s Black Opium Extreme opens with a sweet fruity cocktail of crisp pear and honeyed mandarin balanced by a tart cherry accord. The heart blossoms into a white floral bouquet of heady jasmine and orange blossom for a touch of femininity, which contrasts the seductive, moreish base notes of vanilla, patchouli and tonka bean. Of course, YSL wouldn’t forget their signature note of coffee; the bitter but addictive roasted coffee accord feels both warm and energising as it lingers on your skin.
Top notes are Pear Accord, Mandarin Essence, Cherry Accord. Heart notes are Orange Blossom Absolute, Jasmine Absolute. Base notes are Black Coffee Accord, Vanilla Accord, Patchouli Essence, Tonka Bean.
Why it’s Escentual:
In 1977, YSL introduced the boundary-pushing Opium - and now, Black Opium Extreme continues this legacy with its warm, coffee-fueled fragrance. If you’re a fan of the iconic gourmand notes found in Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium (who isn't?), or perhaps you just love coffee and you’re looking for a rich, intense and long-lasting signature scent, the more concentrated Black Opium Extreme is a perfect fit!
YSL fragrance fans will instantly recognise Black Opium Extreme as it shares obvious similarities to its predecessor; just like Black Opium Eau de Parfum, Extreme’s statement black bottle is covered in sparkling glitter, making it a stunning addition to any fragrance collection. But this contemporary perfume swaps Black Opium’s classic pink centre for a midnight black shade that exudes mystery and sensuality.
The Best Way To Use It:
Spritz Black Opium Extreme onto the pulse points for a long-lasting fragrance. Top tip: spray your hair accessories or hair brush for an addictive trail of scent.
