British actress Emily Blunt is the new face and ambassadress of YSL’s Opium perfume. I was blown away by her performance in ‘Devil Wears Prada‘ opposite Meryl Streep.


The new campaign will apparently “unveil a fiery, almost reckless woman with magnetic seduction, that nobody or nothing can resist”. In my opinion she has transformed into a foxy, sophisicated, predatorial woman. The leopard adds that sense of danger, as he/she stalks and protects the ultimate prize – which is of course the perfume.

She says she suggested wearing a dress in the advert rather than the classic Yves Saint Laurent tux. ‘But I got word back, ’ she continues in a perfect French accent, ‘that the leopard trainer says, “If you have flowing fabric around the leopard the leopard will go crazy .” So I said yes to the tux. ’

Opium takes me back in time, the notes of mandarin orange, bergamot and lily of the valley, also jasmine, carnation and myrrh at its heart, and hints of vanilla, patchouli, opopponax and amber base.
