PARIS — Thirty-two years after Opium’s introduction, Yves Saint Laurent Parfums is relaunching the women’s eau de parfum and eau de toilette versions with a new advertising campaign and bottle.
“It was reinterpreted with Stefano Pilati in a modern way,” said Renaud de Lesquen, president of YSL Beauté, the L’Oréal division that oversees YSL — among other brands — referring to the fashion label’s designer. “It’s a fragrance of addiction; we have revisited this.”
Fabien Baron, of Baron & Baron, was the artistic director for the single- and double-page ads starring Karen Elson and shot by Mert Atlas and Marcus Piggott. Baron also reworked the bottle.
The YSL project was introduced with an eau de parfum version in France on Oct. 1. An eau de toilette iteration came out domestically on Nov. 3. Both the eau de parfum and eau de toilette will be rolled out to Belgium in January and to the rest of the world in March.
“I was touched by the fact that she lost her father, really before his time, and it was a real shock. She had two young children, she was married and she was expecting that she would have her own life for a good 25 years,” said Claire Foy about playing a young Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s The Crown.

“It transcends the genre that is you think of a sci-fi show — you don’t expect it to be so profound or emotionally riveting,” Evan Rachel Wood told WWD of her Emmy nominated role in Westworld. styled by @samanthamcmillen_stylist 📸 @emmanmontalvan #emmys2017 #wwdeye
