Yves Saint Laurent announces a new edition of the popular Black Opium collection to come out at the start of 2017, called Black Opium Floral Shock. The new edition Black Opium Floral Shock is announced as a fresher version with more floral and green aromas and the first one to possess the “iced coffee” accord. The new composition belongs to the family of fruity – florientals and “shocks” with its zesty lemon opening, white floral character in the heart with dominant gardenia, and iced coffee and white musk at the base of the perfume.
The freshness of lemon, bergamot and pear in the top notes mixed with freesia is the first floral accord of the composition. The heart includes white flowers of golden gardenia, orange blossom and a solar floral accord. The base ends with iced coffee, white musk, mineral accord and woody amber. Perfumers Nathalie Lorson, Marie Salamagne, Olivier Cresp and Honorine Blanc collaborated on the creation.
The bottle retains the shape and design of the original; it is transparent and covered with black sparkles that disappear at the bottom and reveal the pink color of the juice. The face of the campaign is model Edie Campbell.
