Yves Saint Laurent Eau d'Orient Poésie de Chine Pour Homme & Femme (2008) {New Fragrances}


Yves Saint Laurent, like every year, are introducing two new limited-edition variations of Opium for the warmer seasons. The masculine and feminine versions in 2008 are called Eau d'Orient Poésie de Chine....



The flacons are decorated with verses excerpted from the Book of Odes, the oldest Chinese poetry collection to date.

Opium pour Homme Poésie de Chine features top notes of grapefruit, bergamote, and star aniseed. Heart notes are orange blossom, nutmeg, and white pepper. Base notes are vetiver, sandalwood, and amber.

Opium pour Femme Poésie de Chine has a heart of Chinese magnolia and vanilla.

  1. The biggest problem with this 2 releases is the design and its quality. I saw them at Sephora and the colour + writing is so bad - it looks like a cheap-counterfeited perfume. Which is very bad for YSL high standards, not to say that this year they celebrate 30 years of YSL Beauty (make up).
    The bottle seems a standard one (Issey Eau Bleue - maybe?). I was very dissapointed by this flanker. The fragrance seems OK, not so different from previous versions (flankers).

  2. I haven't seen the bottles in person so I can't comment.

    Isn't it possible they made the Chinese characters look on purpose a bit worn-looking? The verses are very ancient.
