The authors of the original Eau De Parfum, Master Perfumers Nathalie Lorson, Olivier Cresp, Honorine Blanc & Principal Perfumer Marie Salamagne, reveal their inspiration for the new variation: “A dive into the most extreme darkness of the night when the city lights go out.”

In Black Opium Eau De Parfum Extreme’s nocturnal world, a lush palette of black olfactory tones unfolds from the first exhilarating spray to the ultra long-lasting, sexy drydown.

Firstly, Extra Black Coffee Accord: A surge of pure energy, like a fresh shot from the espresso machine. The energizing signature accord takes on a darker, tougher attitude boosted by the full-bodied bitterness of black cocoa absolute.

Deep Patchouli: Adds a velvety woody depth and incredible lasting power to the scent’s signature coffee accord.

Black Vanilla: Vanilla Bourbon Infusions that unveil deep, mysterious and warm vibrations with delicious balsamic tones.

And finally, Sparkling Fruit: A sequinned top of juicy pear notes, sweet mandarin, and zesty lemon light up the scent.

The Bottle. Own The Glitter.

Can a perfume bottle be sexy? Oh yes. Extremely so. Especially when it’s all dressed up in black glitter, like so many of Saint Laurent’s edgy, ultra-desirable sequinned evening pieces.
