Mélanie Thierry: Yves Saint Laurent Belle D\’Opium Fragrance

| 29 December , 2010 | 2 Replies

Yves Saint Laurent have released a new fragrance, a softer version of their popular fragrance Opium, Belle d’Opium .  Belle d’Opium was inspired by the creative vision of Stefano Pilati, Artistic Director of Yves Saint Laurent.

The fragrance was created by Perfumer Alberto Morillas which they describe as:

What you feel when I dance, what you feel in the trance, are the spirals of spicy white flowers, addictive Casablanca lily, stimulating gardenia, bitter and elegant mandarin.

What it reminds you of& the intoxicating mists of a nargileh accord, a soaring alliance of smoky, tobacco, amber and fruity notes around scorched woods, velvety peach, and vibrant incense.

What remains when I go, the sensual lash of white pepper escorted by a warm, enigmatic and deep wake of dark patchouli, creamy sandalwood, noble and precious woods.

Fronted by Mélanie Thierry the campaign was photographed by Mert & Marcus. A film and theatre actress, Melanie recently received the César award for Most Promising Young Actress. The film “The Princess of Montpensier” in which she plays the leading role, was shown in competition at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.

The fragrance bottle was inspired by the precious Inrô of Far Eastern warriors. Its glass tinted with the famous electric blue, its Matisse, its Passion.

This is a softer version of YSL’s popular Opium fragrance, I find the Opium fragrance too strong but this one is lighter and therefore easier to wear for me.

Yves Saint Laurent Belle D’Opium fragrance is available in three sizes; 30ml RRP$80, 50ml RRP$110 and 90ml RRP$140 and is on counter 30th January 2011 nationally at David Jones and Myer department stores and selected pharmacies and perfumeries.  For your nearest stockist call 02-9331 8814.

    I know, I get it … the campaign has been out at the airport in the Duty Free area for a while now but isn’t hitting our counters until end of January, so I had to hold off posting it.
