Yves Saint Laurent OPIUM

Eau de Toilette spray for woman


Opium by Yves Saint Laurent is an “Eau de Toilette“ belonging to the oriental floral family for women. This is a reformulation of the original fragrance, which keeps its wake and essence alive, and on this occasion lightens and refreshes it, giving it a younger and more relaxed tone.

This fragrance was launched in 2009, but its original version was born in 1977. It had to be withdrawn from sale for health reasons, as too high a dose of some of its components was used, and also because of the environmental extinction of the Mysore sandalwood, one of its protagonists. Opium is a scandalous floral fusion, daring, powerful and intoxicating, it is one of the most emblematic and iconic feminine fragrances in history, and after four decades, continues to waste exclusivity and reap a loyal following of admirers.

Its olfactory pyramid begins with a particular chord of mandarin orange, pepper orange, cinnamon and chilli pepper, a vibrant fusion that opens the doors to a floral heart, a bouquet of jasmine, carnation, ylang-ylang and rose, an ultra-feminine bouquet with powerful seductive effects. Finally, its wake ends with subtlety, thanks to benzoin, opposing patchouli and a touch of sweet vanilla.

EAU DE TOILETTE. This version, in Eau de Toilette, is noticeably lighter than the perfume. A reformulated aroma, which changes the intensity by subtlety, and avoids the great olfactory impacts.

IMAGINARY WORLD. Opium transports us to an unexplored world, where he is a star charged with luminosity and with fiery sparks. A fiery and explosive star, that gives off desire and mystery.

CLASSIC IN PERFUMERY. This perfume is considered a classic in the world of perfumery. An iconic fragrance that, despite the passage of time, continues to hold the highest sales positions, and is a waste of elegance and sophistication.

To make your scent last longer, apply your fragrance to your wrists and behind the ear lobe. These pulse points have a temperature superior to the rest of the body, and this will help the fragrance to evaporate slower. Avoid spraying perfume on the clothes as it can stain, damage and alter certain fabrics. To prolong the longevity of the fragrance, we recommend using products from the same range such as shower gels, body lotions or deodorants.


Protect your fragrance from direct sunlight and heat, otherwise it could alter the composition of the fragrance and escape.
