To embody the Black Opium woman is YSL Beauty muse Zoë Kravitz.

For those seeking an indulgent fragrance awash with contrasts and mystery YSL Beauty introduces Black Opium Eau de Parfum intense. A bolder take on the floral-gourmand signature of the original Black Opium Eau de Parfum. The Eau de Parfum Intense brings a magnetic blast of energy to the Black Opium coffee accord with the thrilling aura of blue absinthe. Absinthe, woven with wormwood and aromatic herbs, blends with anis and juicy boysenberry against a rich floral heart of jasmine sambac absolute and orange blossom. At the base, the signature black coffee accord is paired with liquorice, sandalwood and creamy vanilla for a women’s perfume that is electric yet smooth and unashamedly seductive.

APPLICATION
• For light intensity: spray in a cloud around your head and shoulders, let the fragrance fall gently around you.
• For medium intensity: spray in a y-shape across your body, beginning at one shoulder and finishing at the other. If you are wearing jewellery it is a great alternative to spraying your neck.
• For added intensity: apply perfume directly to your pulse points and / or hot spots (wrist, inner elbow and lower neck). Here the heat of your body will allow the fragrance to reveal its full trail. Include shoulders and back to intensify your perfume trail

OTHER APPLICATION TIPS:
• Hair & hair accessories: they can be fragranced for a gentle fragrance trail. For just a halo of scent, spray your hair brush only. For the ultimate pampering treat for your hair discover the Black Opium Hair Mist, infused with Argan oil.
• Garments: perfume the inside of your jacket and coats for a medium trail. For added intensity of fragrance go further and perfume your blouse / jumper.
• Scarves: for lighter fragrance, spray a scarf and wrap the scarf around your neck to transfer fragrance onto yourself gently.
• Bathing: spritz perfume on warm bath water for an indulgent experience.
