This black box of mystery arrived on my doorstep last week. It’s the YSL Black Opium EDT.
A new adventure begins,
Follow me, I dare you…
The hedonistic black coffee note of the original Black Opium scent is transformed into an ultra-luminous green coffee accord with a heart of jasmine tea on a base of sensual patchouli, white woods and musk.
- Heart notes: Green coffee accord, jasmine tea
- Base notes: Patchouli, white woods, musk

The key note remains the same for this all new YSL Black Opium EDT, its key note being coffee, which is combined with fresh, greener shades of flowers, tea and fruit. This version accentuates the green character of coffee.
Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Eau de Toilette Spray starts with fruity notes of tart and refreshing black currant combined with pear zest, citruses and green mandarin. The heart incorporates the key ingredient—coffee, which becomes fresher with jasmine tea notes and luminous sweet orange blossom.
Overall, A very seductive, feminine fragrance, I would describe it more as classy and intoxicating fragrance! While this feature coffee note like its predecessor, This has a green coffee accord coupled with a heart of jasmine tea, on a base of sensual patchouli, white woods and musk. Totally in love with this! Longevity is just perfect…lasts entire day! I have received so many compliments on my perfume when I have been wearing this. Definitely, a keeper.
