Opium Parfum

Overall rating

After being unable to find Opium in the parfum version at any of my local department stores, I was thrilled to find it online here. I immediately ordered two bottles! When it arrived, I applied some fragrance right away. I am just heartbroken! The scent is NOT the same as the Opium parfum I have loved wearing for years. Indeed, I compared the ingredients of my "old" packaging to the new, and they are different. Why oh why change perfection? The original Opium was incomparable. Please go back to that formula!

I know many of us love, love LOVE the scent of Opium we adored in the 1980s and 1990s, but this frangrance has been DESTROYED, imo, by the reformulation abomination in 2010. Ladies and gentlemen, don't be fooled by the packaging! Anything you buy that's currently offered by Yves Saint Laurent (L'Oreal) is NOT the "original Opium" we loved from the past. YSL, PLEASE bring back the old stuff!!

about a year ago I purchased my favorite scent of all time only to find out it had been changed from the fragrance I loved so much in the 80s and 90s. Sadly this change was not for the better. Based on what I've read here and on the internet it seems many others feel the same. PLEASE YSL, bring back the original!

I was using opium 25 years ago. Love it, Love it, Love it! Still do. Had all sorts of compliment from Strangers asking, and really liking the smell. Most of the Strangers were women, who I think sometimes can be the harshest critics. Standing in a grocery line, Shopping, etc. People and I love this smell :)
