So, SO, SO disappointed with the new fragrance of Opium. I had no idea there was a new formulation until I opened my new bottle. It smelled so COMPLETELY different on me (even irritated my skin slightly) that I Googled 'Opium' and saw the multitudes of complaints. I too have been wearing Opium for 30 years - it's the only scent I've worn - it's 'me'. Any ideas on how to be sure the "vintage" bottles of Opium being sold on EBAY are the real thing. I'm GUTTED!… Read Full Review

I have used Opium since 1980's and have always received compliments. My recent purchased Opium does not have the same scent, and I no longer receive compliments on how nice it smells. I've stopped wearing it because I don't like the scent when I'm wearing it. I don't even know what to replace it with, since I have not found a scent I like as well as the old Opium. PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!… Read Full Review

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… Read Full Review

2012: I've worn Opium for almost 20 years. I love it, and utter strangers compliment me on it. The change in bottle shape and format seems to coincide with a complete change in formulation. This is NOT the 'old' Opium. Top note is acrid and bitter. The top note lasts for over an hour. A nasty, unpleasant smell. As well the entire scent experience is no longer 'long-lasting'. 2 hours later - it's entirely gone. Given the 'new' smell we should be happy. I'm searching for the 'old' bottles to put… Read Full Review

Opium perfume is a complete 3D experience, a symphony for the nose and for the brain, and is well worth the price. Don't bother with the eau de cologne though which comparatively is merely pretty and shallowly reminiscent of the real deal.
I discovered Opium in October 1977 on the day I turned 13 when my grandmother who was more suited for being my Auntie Mame gave me a bottle of the perfume for my birthday. Yes, the perfume!- tassel and all.
Opium changed me, transformed my whole world… Read Full Review

/>Opium is a striking perfume rich and heady perfect for winter nights. Smells like patchouli musk and possibly the scent of leather… Read Full Review

It is warm, powdery and sensuous. Strangely, the eau de toilette seems to last longer than the eau de parfum, which I have been buying recently.
Men are attracted to you whilst wearing Opium. The body cream and lotion are superb. My tip is to spray fragrance FIRST then apply the lotion or cream to "fix" the fragrance and prevent evaporation… Read Full Review

Whenever I wear Opium it seems to make me feel very special and sexy. On special occasions when I am all dressed up and I put on Opium and I walk into a place I feel special and on top of the world. My children and grand-children recognize that it is MY perfume… Read Full Review

I am absolutely fascinated with YSL Opium perfume. It's establishing high standards for the women who wear it. It's not for the light hearted. It's challenging, energising and full of personality!… Read Full Review

YSL Opium is a perfume I have worn on and off over the years, but I do love the sexy spicy oriental smell, it is strong smelling and last all evening, I always use the cream body moisturizer after showering then apply the perfume. I love it.
