DETAILS

The opulent decadence of the Eau de Parfum captures the overtly sensual spirit of the original parfum designed by Yves Saint Laurent, only in a lighter spray form. Striking notes of mandarin and bergamot are made mystical with middle notes myrrh and jasmine. A final accord of deep amber laced with Opoponaux imbues the scent with its celebrated rapture. In a chic Chinoiserie-inspired flacon.

Suzanne R: Sadly to say yes. Opium has been my signature perfume for more years than I care to admit. Last November, I purchased the eau de parfum version direct from YSL. I've always purchased edp or secret de parfum, until that was discontinued. The new bottle has a soapy scent to my nose, and it's not a good addition. Luckily the older version can still be found if you know where to look. Mar 5, 2012

Paula E.: Where can you get the older version. Opium is the only parfum I've warn for 30 years. I've tried to others, but they make me sneeze, and its hard to breath. I dont even try anything else anymore. I thought the new bottle smelt different. Mar 25, 2013
Doreen G: Where can you get the older version? I too have worn Opium for over 30yrs nothing else measures up, I feel I am not dressed without it..... May 9, 2013

Michelle L: TO ALL THOSE NOTICING A DIFFERENCE IN THE NEWER OPIUM: America is one of the countries that passed a law forbiding the import of Ambergris or products containing Ambergris. Ambergris is a substance taken from whales. It is what has given many perfumes a more enhanced and luxurious scent for many years. Chanel has also gone through reformulations on their scents imported to the U.S. There are some countries that don't abide by these regulations, but you would need to research this on your own. The bottom line is: Please do not blame YSL, for they are just abiding by the law. I will still use Opium - even the reformulated scent is wonderful to me. Nov 18, 2013
Reply to Michelle Good answer? Yes (1) No (1)
Rayelle T: I've worn Opium for a long time. I've been wearing the new Opium for about a month. I don't smell a difference. The bottle is cheaper and getting it to always spray nicely is a pain. Since I've worn it for so long, people recognize me by the smell and no one has commented on it, especially not my daughter and she would notice. Mar 4, 2012

Marlys A: I cannot notice a difference in the frangrance. I like the new bottle and am waiting for a splash to be introduced in this new packaging.

A shopper asked: I have been using opium eau de parfum for more than ten years and never experienced the following problem.
I have come to the end of a 50ml bottle of eau de parfum and the stick in the middle does not go down as far as usual. This means that there is about 10 ml of eau de parfum in the bottom of the bottle that I cannot access.

Do you have any suggestions how to access this parfum?. I have attempted to remove the top but to no avail.

All the best

Beth K: I have had the same problem and it's frustrating since I feel money is being wasted with product that is unusable!! This bottle design seems to be flawed because I have also tried and you just can't use the last of the parfum. It all started when they changed the design of the bottle and YSL really needs to re-think this as it does not allow use of the entire product. Aug 17, 2013
Reply to Beth Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Michele H W: I have the same issue, but have found an answer that allows me to access more of the fragrance. I turn the bottle upside down and get some of it in the stick and then spray. I give the bottle a little rest and then do it again. It allows me to use most of the bottle. I would love to hear other answers. This has always bothered me as I have use this fragrance for over ten years also.

Teri N: The formula is slightly different as they cannot use ambergris in the scents they sell in the USA so you can thank the EPA. I've been wearing Opium since 1978 and I noticed the change, but it's still the only thing I will ever wear--I've worn it my whole life. Dec 1, 2013

Malanious G: This product is PHENOMENAL. I love the new design. It lasts a very long time. The scent's deep richness is intoxicating. Most important - the Parfum is the ONLY cologne I will wear. Eau De Toilette just doesn't have the richness of flavor. Everybody asks - especially men - what am I wearing. When I tell them Opium, I've had quite a few either say on the spot that my Opium doesn't smell like that, or come back and challenge me because theirs isn't quite the same. There is a BIG difference. Love, love love it! Many men have bought it for their wives and significant others. Great job YSL! - A Fan in Cincinnati, OH Mar 19, 2012

Marcie H: Marcie H: I've been hooked on Opium for over 20 years, my ex-husband was the first to buy it for me. I fell in love with it. Sadly the marriage didn't last.....but the Opium lasted longer...lol! It's just amazing! People are always complimenting me on my beautiful smell and I just adore that kind of attention. Opium will be with me forever. Now my daughter is hooked it too. It's just the best smell available, that's all there is to it. I can tell it from any other smell. I love love love Opium. THE END!

A shopper asked: For YEARS I have been using Opium and would not dream of buying anything else. However, the last time I purchased it, I was disappointed. I am not able to shop for myself and asked someone to bring me a bottle expecting the same thing. The square bottle was brought to me and it does not have the same fragrance of the taller bottle.

Sylvia H: My daughter also for YEARS bought and used Opium which she loved and used only Opium never another perfume. She will not buy it anymore due to the change of product and package of the product. She too is highly disappointed in the change... She can no longer get the Opium body oil which she loved. Forget trying to get the old bottle or original scent ...it's a thing of the past.... She tried writing to the company and received no reply.. I wish they were interested in their product and their loyal customers and what they have to say???....... May 2, 2013

M Catherine F: Dear Shopper,
I did the same expecting the same fragrance I had worn for many years. It no longer smells the same. The new formula, I do not like at all. I think the company should have made a statement to anyone thinking of purchasing Opium, "the formula has changed". They simply could have written a notice underneath the bottle in their advertising or sale image of the bottle. I say shame on them.

bronwen b: The product on the square brown bottle inside a mostly gold box is Opium "Eau de Parfum". It does smell different Eau de Toilette or cologne, because its more concentrated. I have used Opium Eau de Parfum since it came out in the mid-1990s (I used Eau de toilette before) The bottle has gone thru several changes, but I have not found that the fragrance changed. Maybe you got the Eau de Parfum instead of the toilette water or cologne and that's what you were used to. May 1, 2013

Malanious G: I experienced the same thing until I realized I could purchase Opium directly from Yves St. Laurent. I know longer experience the variation in the parfum strength and rich fragrance. I would recommend you stick with this website and leave the stores alone. Good luck to you. May 6, 2013

A shopper asked: I believe some Perfumes can smell quiet different from one person to another due to the oils in their skin etc I'm told - True or False - I'm sure we have all at some time had someone ask what we are wearing and when told they say "it dosn't smell that nice on me!!

WayneandKatie S: Katie I have been wearing opium for 30 yrs. Loved it until I bought the new wider bottle.Totally disappointed!I have given up wearing it because my customers now say they smell after shave.I never get nice complimentsany more.I feel like I have been ripped off. I have almost a full bottle of a 115.00 bottle of opiumthat I cant wear. So unfair. I would love too find another that smells similar but I do not know what to look for.Please bring back the orginial. May 20, 2013
MARK P G: I agree that some perfumes smell quiet different from one person to another. I have known several different women who wore Opium and while there is a subtle difference in the scent from one woman to another, I would say that it is less pronounced with Opium that with many other fragrances Apr 16, 2012

M Catherine F: This formula has been changed. I knew it smelled different when I applied the parfum. I would not have ordered this had I known the formula had changed. It doesn't smell the same at all. I feel that I paid for a product that I did not order. Very, very disappointed. Apr 16, 2012

Teri N: Yes, it did. The formula is slightly different as they cannot use ambergris in the scents they sell in the USA so you can thank the EPA. I've been wearing Opium since 1978 and I noticed the change, but it's still the only thing I will ever wear--I've worn it my whole life. Dec 1, 2013

sharon b: Staff,
To state that there might be slight variations in intensity in your product insults the purchasers of this product. If a product as ICONIC as OPIUM once was, can admit that there is a variation, that tells me there is is a break down in quality control. i.e. A person buys a bottle of toilet or parfume for upwards ,$90-110 they will not get expected quality, but the same person could buy the product and spend $200.00 can expect to be satisfied. That is total abuse of the loyal customer. You should, as a company look to have most of your customer base satisfied not just the higher end . Opium was once one of the largest department store displays has gone the way, might I dare say , the product of VARIATION. By the way, I too am an Opium consumer that relates to most of your mail in regards to scent and compliments and I am deeply saddened by the loss of my icon, OPIUM.

I've been wearing Opium since 1978 and I noticed the change, but it's still the only thing I will ever wear--I've worn it my whole life. Sharon is correct, it is different than it used to be, I noticed it immediately as does anyone with a perfurmer's nose like Sharon and myself. However, the vast majority of users don't notice the difference. Dec 1, 2013

Lois S: The Opium Toilette Spray and Parfum Spray are in 1.6 and 3.0 ozs. Also the gift set carries the 3.0 Parfum Spray and 6.6 Body Cream. I wish now that I had gotten the Body Cream from YSL because I am still waiting for a shipment of it from Nordstrom. I paid $15.00 for a two day delivery for the body cream and have yet to receive it. The fragrance is the most wonderful fragrance there is. I always buy YSL products. It's well worth the money. Buy directly from YSL.....you'll get your product in satisfactory time and condition. Nov 1, 2012

A shopper asked: Several months ago a "new" Opium was introduced and my daughter took me to the store to preview it. I did not care for it at all. It was not a problem at that time, because I had an ample supply. Last week I purchased a new bottle and noticed a difference at once. Do you think that they combined the two fragrances tocut their losses? May 16, 2012

Brandon B: I disagree with Mark as I think a man can easily wear this as long as it is done with moderation. There are certainly other mens' colognes that are rich and 'spicy' like Opium. The Parfum or EDP is likely too strong for a man, but I certainly don't have a problem with the occasional spray of EDT. I get a lot of compliments - and some are from guys who want to try it themselves. May 18, 2012
