Opium

photo 2

Opium, a wildy spicy scent of the late 1970’s (Yves Saint Laurent 1977)  is Bianca Jagger’s red lipped insouciance, plush leather and a hot disco beat in a bottle.   Oh and add something almost a little scary to that too.

With hauntingly dark balsamic notes and a rich base that holds the sensual notes in tandem Opium is an iconic scent. Opium is quite unique.

Top notes: coriander, plum, citruses, mandarin orange, pepper, jasmine, cloves, west indian bay and bergamot.   Middle notes: carnation, sandalwood, patchouli, cinnamon, orris root, peach, lily-of-the-valley and rose.  Base notes: labdanum, tolu balsam, sandalwood, opoponax, musk, coconut, vanilla, benzoin, vetiver, incense, cedar, myrrh, castoreum and amber.
