Black Opium Intense is a spicy floral feast that awakens the senses. Launched in 2019 by the house of Yves Saint Laurent, this scent is seductive, magical and extremely bold. The enchanting aroma of Blue Absinthe and Boysenberry rule the top notes. The middle is a balance of Black Coffee, Orange Blossom and Jasmine Sambac. The base notes display an exciting blend of Sandalwood, Vanilla and Liquorice for a fragrance that is provocative and captivating.

Customer Reviews

YSL Black Opium Intense is very similar to the original Black Opium, but it definitely has a unique scent compared to the two. It’s not heavier in any sense…in fact it has stronger floral notes of orange blossom and the green absinthe make it so unique! You still get the Black Opium that you love, only a bit of a variation of that beautiful and wildly popular fragrance. The scent lasts forever, I’ve had compliments from friends the next day after spending a sleepover, and the scent was still there much to my surprise! They all loved it and asked me what I was wearing…I didn’t want to tell them because I don’t like to smell like everyone else, but I’m such a nice girl that I did anyway. I would say that if you’re in love with Black Opium, and want a new fragrance but you’re undecided about switching…purchase a bottle of Intense Intense just to mix it up a bit. You’ll still get the fragrance that you love, only with a a few subdued notes that make it smell a bit differently. A bottle will last a very long time, a little goes a very long way. I wear it during the daytime in the colder months and don’t hose myself down with it, and have received a few compliments from strangers whilst shopping and being very close by. Probably just as many compliments as I have received from wearing the original Black Opium. It’s a very sensual scent, very feminine and not at all like something an old lady would wear. So far, the men have paid me the most compliments by far! ;)

This is just as amazing as the regular black opium, just a little different to me. I love Intense just as much. I have both and use them all the time. It is a very strong sent, but smells so good.
