Described as a fruity and aromatic scent, Yves Saint Laurent Opium eau de toilette spray for women opens with top notes of carnation, cinnamon and pepper, fusing with a heart of jasmine, rose and ylang ylang, finally rounded off with a smooth base of vanilla, patchouli and opoponax. Yves Saint Laurent is one of our biggest selling brands of fragrances and toiletries here at Fragrance Direct, and our customers are particularly fond of this Yves Saint Laurent Opium eau de toilette spray for women for its exotic and enigmatic aroma. Yves Saint Laurent was born in the former French Algeria region in 1936, and moved to Paris at the age of 17, being hired as assistant to Christian Dior. Laurent was appointed head of the House of Dior after his death, then launched his own fashion label in 1961, and quickly forged a reputation as one of the most influential fashion designers in the world. The YSL product collection here at Fragrance Direct includes a whole host of fragrances and toiletries for both men and women.
