Anyone for coffee?
More specifically: anyone for white coffee, layered with white flowers and musks, powered out of the darkly shimmering bottle on a burst of aldehydes…?
YSL revisit the so-successful Black Opium with new Black Opium Nuit Blanche. It’s named after Paris’s ‘Nuit Blanche’: an all-night party in Paris when the streets become a playground for artists, groovesters and partygoers.
It has all the sexiness of the original, but – so we’re told – with an ‘aphrodisiac’ white musk note which ‘adapts to the wearer’s skin as a pheromone-booster to amp up sexuality’.
Quite some promise – but Valentine’s week certainly looks like the right time to put that to the test. (And the exquisite Edie Campbell certainly smoulders in YSL’s short film, below.)
