  1. Great Fall scent

    by Johanna on Sep 30, 2016

    This is my all time favorite
  2. An "Oriental Spicy" fragrance

    by Jeffrey on Sep 16, 2016

    I obtained a decant of this thinking I could pull this off but as a man, I can't. It's a real nice fragrance that's spicy and floral. This like other fragrances smells different on each person. I smelled this on 2 different women at work years ago and it smelled nice on both but yet different. I think what sets this one apart from "Cinnabar" and "Youth Dew" is that this one is less spicy and more floral.? I see it has resins in it's notes which would make it balsamic yet I don't pick up on those notes. This fragrance really does give that vibe of being in or of the Orient and yet it's in the Oriental group of fragrances which doesn't necessarily mean something that smells of the Orient.
  3. LOVE

    by Ashley on Jul 15, 2016

    I love love love this perfume. It lasts for a long time, it's strong, and it makes a statement. This perfume makes me feel very fierce. It smells like incense and could easily be unisex. Much better than Black Opium.
  4. Opium

    by Tatyana on Jun 9, 2016

    I'm fascinated by this perfume. I am not brave enough to wear it in public yet but at home I keep reaching for it to be transferred into a magical place. It's very spicy and rich, perfect for special occasions.
  5. Opium.

    by Amber on Jun 8, 2016

    This perfume is spicy and mysterious. The woman that wears this has secrets.
  6. Retried this classic

    by Alishia on May 23, 2016

    I knew Opium had been reformulated and I didn't actually care for the original. It smells similar but I find the reformulated went in the wrong direction. The new formula smells more dated than the original. In figured I'd try it because I'm getting older and maybe my nose changed, but no luck. I wish spice smelled good on me but my skin tends to project JUST the spice and the other notes get drowned out.
  7. No longer Opium

    by Alicia on Feb 26, 2016

    I used Opium for years, so I know it well. This reformulation has little or no similarity to the original. This is a new perfume, which deserves a new name. In the present situation omparisons are unavoidable, and to the disadvantage of this newcomer. Opium was an intoxicating, memorable classic. The present one is a good perfume, above average in quality, but it is not Opium.
  8. Spicy Allure

    by Alicia on Feb 14, 2016

    I have worn for many years the older version, and feared that I wouldn't like the new one. They are indeed different perfumes. Perhaps the name should have been changed to avoid disappointments. It is different, indeed, but is good, quite good. Still an spicy oriental, full of character. Seductive and mysterious. Try it with no expectations. You are not going to return to the old Opium, but in all likelihood might enjoy the new journey.
  9. Suitable for a man, too

    by Betsy on Jan 13, 2016

    I think this 2009 formulation is a similar, but different, scent from the 1977 original. Viewing it as a separate and distinct perfume, and not a butchery, helped me to like the reformulation better.
    The original is definitely more feminine, and this newer version is more unisex, and even appropriate for men to wear. In fact, I gave my husband a bottle this Christmas. We both love it.
  10. Smells Like Grandma

    by rhapsodii on Jan 11, 2016

    Perhaps that is putting it too harshly, but this scent just smells outdated to me. It's incense-heavy with floral notes, and the smell just seems to catch in the back of my throat...
  11. Too strong

    by Taina on Dec 26, 2015

    I usually wear strong perfumes, but this is the kind that makes me nauseous. Does not go well with my skin.
  12. I smell like royalty!

    by Jessica on Dec 24, 2015

    I feel like I am living a luxury life when I wear this perfume. It smells rich and sophisticated. I am only in my 20s and I've heard so much about this, the only down side is I feel this is for a women a little older than me. Maybe 40-55
  13. Old Fashioned Quality

    by Kris on Oct 31, 2015

    Yves Saint Laurent's Opium is a perfume I have grown up with. It is in my opinion a slightly more mature perfume with its more musky scent. However what I love the most about Opium is it longevity and strength. I only have to use 1 spray for the scent to be clearly in the air. And I find it lasts longer than most other perfumes I have tried. It is all up one of the highest quality perfumes I have tried.
  14. Just No

    by Kadaffi on Aug 24, 2015

    I had to go wash my hand immediately after trying this scent as it was just NO. It's another scent I found to be dated and overpowering, I can't even describe the scent as it was just all around bad in my opinion.
  15. More Mature..

    by Robin on Jul 5, 2015

    Was a little to mature for me, didn't work with my skin. I did like a little of the spice to it. Reminded me of some of the things my grandmother wore though.
  16. Earth Lore

    by Sharon on Mar 19, 2015

    Judging by the name and gorgeous bottle design, Opium is exactly what I expected it to be: Deep and smoky, ancient and exotic... It immediately evokes imagery of ancient Egypt, Myrrh and Frankincense. Even though I've only just tried Opium for the first time, it's extremely nostalgic for me. It smells exactly like 'Earth Lore' - The smoky, incense-laden shop I frequented as a curious teenager, which was stocked with small Egyptian & Buddhist trinkets, crystals, and books on witchcraft. Opium has the same mystical elements, and is an utterly phenomenal aromatic experience.
  17. Spicy & Comforting

    by Nazia on Feb 13, 2015

    Something about this scent screams comfort scent to me, even though I think it's meant to be sexy. It definitely is a strong, power-woman kind of a scent. But the incense and spicy notes remind me of winter and warmth - it's a fragrance I snuggle up to on a col day indoors :)
  18. Strong and spicy

    by Emily on Dec 31, 2014

    A classic that must be sampled by every perfumista. Strong, powerful, earthy, and magical. I think I'll wear this more in my older years, as it takes a mature and experienced woman to really pull off.
  19. Bring back memories.

    by Adrienne on May 28, 2014

    This scent was made the year I was born. My Mother loves this perfume, and one day my sister and I sprayed the house with the entire bottle. My house smelled like opuim for years after that lol. I love it.
  20. An "Oriental Spicy" frag.

    by Jeffrey on Apr 23, 2014

    I have smelled this years ago on different women,and it smelled different on each of them. It all has to do with your chemistry and it's "drydown". I ordered a sample of this to see if I could pull off wearing this as a male. And I think I might. So this could be also a unisexual perfume. I tried the "Opium" for men when it first came out and I didn't like it cause it smelled like root beer on me. This on the other hand is a spicy fragrance quite different then "Youth Dew". I do like this frag. cause of it being spicy. This comes on strong at first when I first apply it and is more spicy, and after awhile it mellows out and the spicy-ness goes away.
  21. Comes on strong

    by Jennifer on Nov 4, 2013

    I've always loved this perfume. My mother wore it and kw so do I. It's not for the faint of heart! It comes in strong but mellows out to a fantastic sexy scent
