2015 Best New Female Fragrance by the Fragrance Foundation and Allure Best of Beauty award winner.

With a glam rock aesthetic, this addictive gourmand floral entices with notes of black coffee for a shot of adrenaline, white florals to instantly seduce, and vanilla for sweetness and sensuality. Playing on the incongruity between the bitterness of the coffee bean accord, an ingredient never used before in such a high quantity in a feminine fragrance and radiant white flowers, BLACK OPIUM gives a sensation of light-headedness, bordering on ecstasy.


First there is the wake-up call. The coffee bean note hits you hard, jolting the senses. Next, it becomes softer and more feminine with the white flowers of jasmine sambac and absolu of fleur d’oranger to finish incredibly addictive and emboldened by the ambrosial appeal of vanilla and the woody notes of cedar and patchouli, giving a roundness, depth, and mysterious elegance.


Audacious? Perhaps. Addictive, electrifying? Definitely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavenly This fragrance is so sensuous. I really don't know how to describe it. It's very sweet with a touch of spice. It is more of an evening fragrance and a little goes a long way. I just go it so I haven't worn it out yet. I can't wait to see the reactions I get!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite fragrance! I had been wearing Opium, and getting compliments on my fragrance, ever since it was introduced. I have never found a perfume that could rival it. Black Opium is different from any other scent I have sampled over the years. As soon as I put it on I could tell it was an exciting new fragrance for me. Now I have two great perfumes which make me feel sexy and irresistible. My only problem is trying to decide which one I want to wear each day! Can a lady have two signature fragrances? She can if the are from YSL!

Questions & Answers

Is the fragrance sweat or woodsy (flower or herb(

Asked by: Icegirl
Oh no sorry I thought you were asking about Opium! Black Opium is actually completely the opposite, it's very sweet and more flowery, and it's more for a younger woman. Personally I find it to be too sweet and don't wear it much at all

Can we use it for summer ?
Asked by: Anonymous
I do, so yes. I don't put as much as I would in colder months, but it is perfect for the summer. The notes of the vanilla and jasmine combined is so sweet and the coffee gently tones the sweet down into a beautiful summery scent, if you don't overdo!

Hi, why is there a color difference for black opium? I always use the pink one. Why do I get now the orange one? Is there a difference?
Asked by: Anonymous
YSL has really messed up a really good thing. The orange one has always been the original - theychanged the scent and didn't tell their customers, after what I can only hope is many complaints they introduced Opium Black. How sad that now faithful customers don't know what is the product they are receiving in what bottle.

I've used the original Opium for years, want to try Black Opium, but no one has samples or the small roller size. I've spent far too much money, in the past, for scents that don't work on me so I've become a bit more careful before dropping 100-300.00 for something that makes me smell like a skunk. Where can I find a sample or????
