When the Yves Saint Laurent house released a perfume in 1977 which took the name of Opium, the scandal could only have been total. Saint Laurent makes a strong promise of a sensual, seductive moment, inhabited by the mystery of heavy scrolls which give way to the reign of the senses… This perfume was thus inspired by the Empress of China – Opium is therefore a daring perfume, composed for women daring.
Name of the product : Opium
Brand : Yves Saint Laurent
Composition : The opulent decadence of the Eau de Parfum captures the overtly sensual spirit of the original parfum designed by Yves Saint Laurent, only in a lighter spray form. Striking notes of mandarin and bergamot are made mystical with middle notes myrrh and jasmine. A final accord of deep amber laced with Opoponaux imbues the scent with its celebrated rapture. In a chic Chinoiserie-inspired flacon.
TOP : The rich Oriental Floral perfume opens with a sparkling and modern interpretation of fresh top notes of zesty Bergamot and Mandarin, combined with juicy Lychee and Peach.
HEART : The journey to the heart of the fragrance follows into the timeless scent of the Madonna Lily with its voluptuous intensity and enveloping femininity.
BASE : The fragrance finally unfolds to reveal a deep and sensual base of rich Vanilla and resinous Ambery notes combined with smooth Musky notes to leave a lingering presence.
Like the woman that wears it, the strength and uniqueness of Dolce&Gabbana The One fragrance comes from contrast. Used to adorn pulse points or misted into the air to fall in a scented aura, The One is a modern ‘floriental’ eau de parfum combining contemporary fruit ingredients with the perfumer’s classic palette of white flowers. “Every woman is The One!” Stefano Gabbana.
This perfume signed by Frapin, the 1207 cognac house, is a wink at one of the family’s most important members: a man named Albert who had a passion for sports and automobiles. Through its scent, the perfume translates the energy and excitement of motorbike races, especially that of the Tourist Trophy. It is a firmly masculine perfume.
Name of product : Isle of man
Brand : Frapin
Composition : Life should be anything but boring. David Frossard, himself a motorcycle aficionado and lover of extreme sports, entrusted this interpretation to perfumer Aliénor Massenet. Her creation boasts a genuine olfactory signature. The citrusy attack followed by salty floral accords conjures up the heady adrenaline rush of ripping down an ocean-beaten coastline.
Carnal and erotic, this perfume is a break in the segment. The YSL house only said that “M7 Oud Absolu is the culmination of man’s liberation of his body and sexuality; it is the most expressive of YSL’s perfumes for men, and the most direct, with which men discover themselves, to the edge of provocation.”.
Name of the product : M7 Oud
Brand : Yves saint Laurent
M7 is the men’s fragrance that represents the climax of man’s liberation in his relationship with the body and sexuality: the most expressive and direct fragrance for men from YSL.
A resounding disruption for a men’s fragrance of excess, the first to use an oud accord: it merges with myrrh and cistus to create a warm, intense and fascinating fragrance for men.
Mandarin gives a top opening and delivers singular vibrancy, whereas a very potent patchouli wood facet provides depth and addictive tenacity.
