Last Thursday (June 17,2010), Yves Saint Laurent relaunched their legendary Opium fragrance, newly labeled Belle d'Opium. Celebrities such as Alexa Chung, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Ashley Olsen and Alexis Bledel showed up at a Chelsea warehouse that was draped in black velvet to help kick off the scent the right way. The original Opium's 1977 NYC launch was held on a ship that was docked at the South Street Seaport. Ahh, those were the days . . .
Last week, while on one of my many shopping/inspiration trips I stumbled upon a vintage YSL Opium bottle at one of my favorite shops. Coincidence? I think not.
