Yves Saint Laurent

Yves Saint Laurent is, by far, one of the most admired fashion houses in the industry, and its daringly composed perfumes are no exception.

YSL perfumes burst into the world of luxury perfume in 1964 when Yves Saint Laurent launched his first fragrance, Y Eau de Parfum, and later kicked off his men’s perfume line with Pour Homm Eau de Toilette in 1971. Up until today Y EDP and the dozens of other scents that bear the YSL logo are considered some of the best luxury perfumes in the industry.

While YSL perfumes like Libre EDP and the classic Y EDP are legends in the perfume world, there are others like the YSL Opium perfume collection that hold more far-reaching appeal.

That being said, the intoxicating beauty of the YSL Opium collection which includes the likes of Opium EDT, Black Opium EDP, Black Opium EDP Illicit Green, Black Opium EDP Extreme, and many others has captured the attention of perfume lovers around the world and continues to be one of its best-sellers.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the YSL Opium perfume favourites!

YSL Opium Perfume Collection

Any list of the best YSL perfumes is obliged to mention the intoxicatingly beautiful “Opium” perfume collection by Yves Sant Laurent. It’s inarguably one of the most well-known fragrance lines from the brand and many people’s all-time favourite.

The Opium perfume line reflects YSLs fascination for the Orient and all things exotic. Every fragrance in the line-up has an exotic and bold essence that is other-worldly, designed for men and women who aren’t afraid to take risks in life and love to indulge in beauty.

Opium Eau de Toilette

YSL Opium EDT perfume has been a fan-favourite for decades, and it’s no secret why. It has the perfect combination of wood, spices, and florals which create a memorable scent. Stand-out notes of jasmine, mandarin, and bergamot also make it perfect for anyone wanting to stand out in a crowd.

Black Opium Eau de Parfum

Black Opium EDP quickly became one of the best YSL perfumes with its unique blend of notes that includes liquorice, bitter almond, pink pepper, pear, jasmine, coffee, and most intensely patchouli, cedar, and vanilla. While it’s sensual and mysterious, it’s also accessible and great to wear year-round.

Black Opium Eau De Parfum Extreme

If you’re looking for an alternative to run-of-the-mill florals or fruity scents, check out Black Opium Extreme EDP. The scent opens with ultra-white florals and black coffee notes before moving into a burst of patchouli. It then finishes off with base notes of cedar, vanilla, tonka bean, and delicious sandalwood to add excitement and mystery.

Are You Ready to Try Something New?

If you’re already a fan of the YSL Opium fragrances, maybe it's time to branch out and try something new like these two signature YSL scents that we're sure you'll love.

M7 Oud Absolu Eau de Toilette

YSL M7 Oud Absolu EDT perfume is an oriental woody scent that was the first fragrance to use an oud accord, merging citrus and myrrh to make a warm and scintillating fragrance. Top notes of mandarin give way to patchouli in the heart and then dry down to the perfect trio of myrrh and agarwood (Oud) and French labdanum.

YSL Paris Eau de Parfum

Yves Saint Laurent created many Paris-inspired perfumes that captured the beauty and essence of the “City of Light”. YSL Paris Eau de Parfum for women is yet another underdog perfume from YSL that could be considered a diamond in the rough, but it comes out swinging and has captured the hearts of many. The perfume exudes a delicate feminine scent with floral hints of iris, violet, and rose that are balanced and joyful.
