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.
