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).

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.

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.

Opium changed me, transformed my whole... (read more)

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 more)

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 more)

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.
