YSL, BLACK OPIUM the fragrance announced as a rock’n’roll interpretation of the classic that should highlight the dark, mysterious side of the YSL brand. Master perfumers Nathalie Lorson and Marie Salamagne, in collaboration with Olivier Cresp and Honorine Blanc, developed the composition. Notes of coffee, present in large quantities, dominate the scent. Additional accords are pink pepper, orange blossom, jasmine, vanilla, patchouli and cedar. The perfume comes in the bottle designed as the last editions of the Opium collection. The bottle is dark and decorated with sequins that give a glam rock look.
On the skin, Miu Miu almost immediately falls into two layers. On top is a pale floral in which no one note dominates. It’s aldehydic, wan, and vaguely watery. The second layer is a blast of barely woody pepper. That’s it. A whole bunch of freshly ground. Miu Miu comes together and quiets down after half an hour to smell like skin splashed with pepper-spiked facial toner.
Live Irresistible by Givenchy has the lively composition of a mixture of fruits, flowers and spices. It opens with juicy accords of pineapple. The heart captures a bouquet of roses, laid on the base of amber. The bottle design departs from the previous editions of this collection with form and textured glass. The nose behind this fragrance is Dominique Ropion.
