Then, the heart of Black Opium Eau de Toilette takes the form of a huge bouquet of white flowers. Sambac jasmine reveals all its opulence, while the orange blossom brings a more solar note to the whole. Black Opium Glowing finally rests on a more woody base of cedar and patchouli. Musk then amplifies its sensuality.
