Emily Blunt Scores YSL Opium Campaign

Now that gorgeous auburn actress Emily Blunt has been announced as its new face, Yves Saint Laurent’s OPIUM fragrance is about to get a little more spicy.

The 28-year-old British beauty will model for the timeless, classic fragrance in television, print and outdoor ads shot by Romain Gavras and Patrick Demarchelier, respectively.

“I am very honored to have been chosen to be the face of Opium,” Blunt said in a statement. “It is really exciting to embody a fragrance which has stood the test of time without its allure ever being diminished.” (YSL introduced the perfume in 1977.)

“OPIUM is more than a fragrance; it’s a myth that embraces the whole history and values of our House,” added Renaud de Lesquen, President of YSL & Designer Brands. “Over and above her beauty and elegance, we were impressed by the career and artistic options of Emily Blunt.”

This is the first beauty spokesmodel gig for The Adjustment Bureau actress, who’s married to The Office’s John Krasinski. She follows in the footsteps of model Sophie Dahl, who was photographed for the seductive scent in 2000.

FIRST LOOK! Check out Kim Kardashian’s new fragrance ad!

She may be a married woman now, but don’t expect Kim Kardashian to sit back, relax and play housewife anytime soon.

The reality starlet, who just returned to the states after a brief honeymoon on Italy’s Amalfi coast, is still going full speed ahead with her career, showing off her sultry side in a new ad for Kim Kardashian Gold fragrance. In the photo, Kardashian flaunts her curves in a sexy, cleavage-bearing gold dress, with glowing makeup and a sleek ponytail.

The fragrance, which she says makes her “feel sexy,” combines top notes of Italian bergamot and grapefruit with spicy pink peppercorn, plus a floral heart of jasmine, delicate rose and resins of amber and creamy benzoin. A hint of musk finishes the scent, which is displayed inside a rounded golden bottle.

The entrepreneur released a limited-edition fragrance, Love by Kim Kardashian, in the days before her wedding; all 1,000 bottles were quickly sold.

FIRST LOOK! Taylor Swift’s new fragrance, Wonderstruck

It’s “the beginning of something magical,” Taylor Swift teases in the debut ad for her first-ever fragrance, Wonderstruck. It certainly appears that way — the whimsical photo features the singer in a gorgeous gown, surrounded by trees and chandeliers.

Due out in October, Swift’s scent was naturally a personal venture, inspired by her song “Enchanted.” “I wrote the lyric, ‘I’m wonderstruck, blushing all the way home’ … about the first time you meet someone,” she explained in a release. “A fragrance can help shape someone’s first impression and memory of you. It’s exciting to think that Wonderstruck will play a role in creating some of those memories.”

The fruity, floral fragrance boasts notes of raspberry, apple blossom, golden amber and sandalwood. “It was fascinating to learn that you can layer so many different scents to create a beautiful end result,” Swift told WWD of the creation process. “Coming up with ideas for this fragrance and the packaging and message of it reminded me of what it’s like to plan an album launch. It goes out into the world and becomes a part of people’s daily lives.”
