Opium, with its heady scent, is a perfume created for fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent (YSL). It was a perfume that I enjoyed wearing as it reminded me of the Zanzibar spice fields, which I have visited. Then, when I started investigating more deeply into the fur industry I learn that Yves Saint Laurent has a huge real fur collection. I was mortified!
FUR In Yves Saint Laurent’s fashion collection
So why am I sharing this experience?
Well, I have learnt how important it is to check out products if one wants to live ethically. Not only might ingredients be tested on animals but there might also be fur in the closet.
Please don’t support the despicable fur industry – even indirectly.
