The meaning of the colors may be different depending on the culture. However, red makes everyone agree on certain points.
Indeed, this color unquestionably evokes love, passion, eroticism and luxury. When you offer a red rose, it’s a bit like declaring your undying love. Likewise, at the dawn of Valentine’s Day, this color is blooming everywhere … Thus, at the end of 2015, Yves Saint Laurent wanted to highlight the love story that lasts between his star fragrance Opium and the public since its release in 1977. For the occasion, it has therefore decided to offer us a brand new collector’s box all dressed in red.
With the end of the year celebrations approaching, Yves Saint Laurent wanted to wear his star fragrance with his gala dress. It must be said that a success story that has lasted for almost forty years is worth celebrating! So, in order to fill all the fans of the brand with joy, the latter wished to offer the most brilliant of gifts. Opium is therefore adorned with a new red and gold design. More than a perfume, it then becomes a symbol of passion and luxury. All the ingredients are there to make him talk about him and be a great success again. Indeed, the new Opium bottle does not go unnoticed and it is impossible to miss it without looking back. We have before our eyes the object of all fantasies. He wakes up the seductress who sleeps you and releases a totally irresistible spell. Its silhouette is elegant. Its touch is smooth and voluptuous. In addition, it is topped with a golden cabochon which subtly recalls its place in prestigious perfumery. Moreover, this color is recalled in the writing of the word“Opium” which fits into a perfect circle in the center of the case. Finally, a horizontal line completes this refined and modern painting. The whole is hypnotic and executed with brio and a lot of class.
The sulphurous fragrance of Yves Saint Laurent
Opium is a fragrance of character belonging to the family of floral oriental fragrances. Sulphurous, it is, as its name suggests, the perfume perfectly embodying addiction. Its top notes are very fresh and fruity. Mandarin gives it sweetness and a tangy side. Then, bergamot appears and gives a very particular radiance to its citrus notes. Lily of the valley is also present, as is often the case in fine perfumery, and brings lightness to the fragrance. It is also from these little white bells that the refinement of Opium comes in part. Then, her heart blossoms like a bouquet of flowers in the open air. Sambac jasmine blends with spicy carnation and warmer, amber myrrh. Finally, the base sees the appearance of vanilla. Everything then ends with a note of patchouli which enhances the smell and character of this nectar. Opium Rouge Fatal is undeniably a scent of character that will appeal to the femme fatale in you.
