Composition of the fragrance
Black Opium Floral Shock contains the coffee and vanilla accord that is typical of Black Opium; however, it is complemented by fresh and floral notes – bergamot, pear and freesias. The intoxicating orange blossom, gardenia and a sunny floral accord dominate the heart of the fragrance.
Story of the fragrance
The creation of this irresistible fresh and sophisticated fragrance took the attention of four perfumers and it got the name Floral Shock. This is more than accurate, as immediately after spraying it on you will be surprised by a burst of bold, fresh citrus and floral notes.
The subdued pink flacon itself suggests a lighter aromatic experience in comparison to the original version. The coffee accords which pass through the Black Opium fragrance have the effect of a strong morning espresso which will perk up your senses immediately.
