Let me start by saying I have used OPIUM perfume for over 30 years and adore the scent. I have had many compliments and always purchased a new 100ml bottle each year.
I purchased a bottle recently only to find it's been reformatted due to the IFRA restrictions on spicy ingredients (eugenol and iso-eugenol). These ingredients have been removed and replaced and there is now a chemical smell to this perfume. I've also suffered with a rash on my inner wrist area where I apply the perfume. Can't confirm that the perfum is the cause but I haven't used anything else so it seems logical to assume the perfume is causing this rash.
I want others to know about this change so they can make an informed choice on whether to purchase the perfume. Had I known I wouldn't have wasted £70 on this perfume as it doesn't smell anything like the old one.
My advice would be DON'T BUY IT especially if you loved the old perfume.
