Yves Saint Laurent Beauty Taps into Web3 for Black Opium: The Night Is Ours Launch


Wunderman Thompson France launches the two-part web3 campaign, to celebrate the launch of Black Opium le Parfum

Yves Saint Laurent Beauty Taps into Web3 for Black Opium: The Night Is Ours Launch

'Black Opium: The Night is Ours’ from Wunderman Thompson France and tech partner, Arianee, launches with an exclusive drop of NFTs called ‘YSL Beauty Night Blocks’, a tribute to the year the Black Opium perfume was created.

The Pioneering Spirit of YSL Beauty

YSL Beauty is not new to the NFT game. The brand has already built a community of 24,000 NFT* holders from its previous 'Golden Blocks' and 'Pride Blocks' drops, thanks in part to its partnership with P00Ls, a native web3 platform. Both the brand’s fans and the crypto savvy have been keen to become part of the YSL Beauty story by purchasing NFTs.

YSL Beauty has always been an actor of change and a pioneer in the world of beauty. Once again, the brand is pushing boundaries and nurturing its already highly engaged community by promoting a co-creation mindset and leveraging the power of web3. But it’s not just about forward thinking. The initiative has also been used to raise funds to prevent and fight against intimate partner violence. During the second chapter of this Black Opium campaign, all revenue generated by the NFT sales will be donated to partner charities of the Abuse is Not Love program.

The First Drop: YSL Beauty Night Blocks

Designed to create an engaging experience for buyers, NFTs will be gifted on the online store in France, the United States, United Kingdom and Australia upon the purchase of a Black Opium fragrance. Shoppers will receive a newsletter inviting them to download the YSL Beauty wallet app and directly claim one of the exclusive NFTs - either the original or an ultra-rare edition. The original 'YSL Beauty Night Block' will be available in 2000 units. Hypnotic and minimalistic, it captures the essence of Black Opium Eau de Parfum and celebrates its signature themes: the night and glitter.

The second design is an ultra-rare edition only available in 14 units, featuring the newest addition to the fragrance franchise - Black Opium Le Parfum. The name is voted by the brand's Instagram and Twitter communities to capture their vision of the Black Opium night.

Diane Hecquet, chief digital and marketing officer Yves Saint Laurent Beauty, said, “This latest release within the ‘YSL Beauty Blocks’ collection enables us to welcome a new audience into web3 and to test the potential of NFTs when integrated into an online shopping experience.”

Two exciting levels of exclusive bonuses

All NFTs purchased in the first drop will grant access to three desirable options:

  • Access to the private sale of the second chapter of the Black Opium 'The Night is Ours' web3 activation
  • A gift voucher
  • Access to exclusive content by Nathalie Lorson, the master perfumer of Black Opium Le Parfum.

Then, holders of the rarest NFT will also be offered a 90mL Black Opium Le Parfum fragrance and a curated YSL Beauty kit to ‘Get the Black Opium look’.

The Second Drop: YSL Beauty Night Masters

Shortly after the first drop, all holders of 'YSL Beauty Blocks' will be notified on their YSL Beauty wallet for the second drop of the campaign. This chapter, which takes the form of a paid drop, is in support of the Abuse Is not Love program and will offer early access to the brand’s web3 community during the private sale hosted on this website.

These exclusive NFTs will be designed in collaboration with inspiring female artists, whose names will soon be revealed.
