Opus Oils latest collection, “Les Bohemes” (The Bohemians) is a throwback to the age of Speakeasies & wild abandon. Rich, Ultra Decadent & Shamelessly heavy on the Natural Essences – just like the scents that were constructed during Perfume’s Golden Age of the 1920’s. Les Bohemes were first used in creating custom perfumes; each fragrance is designed to be worn alone or in layered combinations with each other.
