Get ready to meet the new tropical queen on the block, YSL Black Opium Exotic Illusion. Yep, the wait is finally over. YSL has presented us with a new, tropical bottle but containing the original juice you know and love. Here’s why you need to make space for it in your perfume collection…
IT WAS MADE FOR FESTIVALS
Festival season is approaching (fast), and there’s no better time to rock this eau de parfum. Just imagine being transported to somewhere far, far away, where the sun is setting on the horizon, and – when evening comes – it’s party time (you can probably tell we have Coachella in mind). Just couple with some glitter face paint and – voila – you’re ready to impress. Prepare to leave behind an iconic trail of this scent wherever you go.
THE BOTTLE IS SUPER-EXOTIC
Vibrant, sensual and desirable perfectly describe this palm tree bottle, which has transformed classic to kick-ass. It’s coated in a pattern of glittery silver palm trees and makes us wish we were somewhere hot and tropical. Dreamy!
YOU’LL OBSESS ABOUT THE SMELL
YSL Black Opium Exotic Illusion has a sensational mix of ingredients that makes you stand out from the crowd. First, you’ll get the electrifying jolt of coffee mixed with warming vanilla for the perfect ratio of sharp and creamy. Then, thanks to the jasmine sambac and orange blossom absolute, the fragrance becomes light and girly. But it’s the woody notes of cedar and patchouli that give the scent its warm, addictive smell. We’re in love all over again.
