Belle d`Opium is the new addiction by Yves Saint Laurent; a fragrance that is a disconcertingly bewitching new oriental. It is a true olfactory manifesto and a profusion of rare and precious ingredients: Casablanca Lily blends with spicy Incense and mysterious overtones of a Nargileh accord.
A woman who wears it is full of ambivalence, elusive and obsessive, powerful and troubling, ingenue but dangerous.
Top notes: mandarin, Casablanca lily, gardenia, jasmine
Heart: incense, peach, white pepper, tobacco, hookah accord, fruity notes
Base: amber, sandalwood, patchouli, smoky notes
The bottle is a redesigned version of the original, updated with a flamboyant red wick and highlighted with a gold circle and cap.
The face of the fragrance is actress Mélanie Thierry.
