Belle d'Opium by Yves Saint Laurent is a Oriental Woody fragrance for women. Belle d'Opium was launched in 2010. Belle d'Opium was created by Honorine Blanc and Alberto Morillas. Top notes are Casablanca Lily, Gardenia, Jasmine and Mandarin Orange; middle notes are Incense, Fruity Notes, White Pepper, Tobacco, Peach and Rose; base notes are Sandalwood, Patchouli, Amber and Vanilla.
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.
