Best Bet: Classic Reinvention


Love it or hate it, Yves Saint Laurent's Opium is a bona fide classic. Everyone has a story about the first time they wore it or a vivid memory of their aunt or mother every time they smell it. Now, after 32 years, the bottle we all remember will be gone; come May, a brand-new one will hit shelves. Inspired by the inro (lidded boxes) worn by Asian men and women back in the day, the new bottle is a far cry from the old-school round one. We're shocked by the change and somewhat nostalgic, but the packaging overhaul of this classic should be noticed. Here's a sneak peek.

Available in May, $50-$175 at Bergdorf Goodman.
