My all time favorite

Dec 29, 2016

This is my 3rd bottle of Opium and is absolutely my most favorite of all parfums. I often switch brands just for a little extra excitement in my life but always return to this one. I am now considering purchasing Black but wonder if it too will fulfill my expectations. Wait and see.

Fantastic!

I have woren this product since its introduction in the 1980s. Have also continued with the shower gel and the body cream. It's timeless!

I miss my favorite smell

Not the same, I wanted it to be the same. I'm not happy ☹️️

Monogram plus Classic fragrance together.

Jan 31, 2017

This is simply beautiful and a nice consistant scent. The Monogram makes it a classic and as a gift nearly a Necessity ! Brides come to mind. Of course for the one you know likes the scent.

Timeless and unique, superior scent

This is my "go to" fragrance. It's unique feminine scent is one of a kind. I little bit goes a long way

Ageless and timeless

Dec 18, 2016

I bought this because I have been a fan of Opium for decades, and I love the citrus/woodsy fragrance that, for me, is incomparable to any other fragrance I have experienced.

Christmas gift, He knows it is my favorite!

Have loved this scent for over 30 Years! It is always on my Christmas List Or Birthday List, now Black Opium is too!

Opium perfume

Nov 1, 2016

What is happening to opium perfume???
It's not like before. The scent lasted for hours on the old version.
This new version opium is almost like buying a simple body mist for $10.00
But worse than a simple spray.
It don't last more than a hour.
It's like spraying water scent mist.
The only perfume I buy is opium.
I used this perfume or toilette since 1992.
I also have a variety collection of the old version.
Can you please change the perfume back to the old version please.

Old fragrance

Nov 20, 2016

The old fragrance was so much better, I bought the new one and it just was the same. Had to go on eBay to find the old one.

Smells beauiful!

Everything was as promised. My wife was very pleased. Thank you..

Too bad it is not the same as it used to be

Dec 11, 2016

I have been using this Opium since i was 18 and now i am 53. But for the last 6 years it has not been the same in no way. I tried using the Eau de Toilette to see if its fragrance quality is better, and it turned out that it is even worse. (Does not last for more than one hour, if it does). I bought it from different countries to see if there is a difference. But it turned out the same. I really cannot understand how can such a special fragrance be changed dramatically like this. It is a pity paying this much money for a perfume which does not reflect your personality. This is not the "real" Opium of the not so distant past! The spice of sandalwood, allure and fragrance no longer exist and it does not stimulate the senses like it used to be. No more compliments when i pass by people like i used to get in the far past. Please bring back the old formula, i don't want to change my first and only perfume i have been using.

Extremely disappointed!

This new version smells flat & like a cheap knock off of the rich & deep
fragrance I remembered, & thought I was getting. Had I not bought it from
YSL directly, I'd have thought I was sold a copy....maybe I was. Are you
sure this is what you're calling Opium these days? It also has no staying
power....am disgusted.

OPIUM MYSTERY SOLVED

May 3, 2015

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE BEYOND FRUSTRATED ABOUT THE RE-FORMULATED OPIUM, LET ME SAY I SHARE YOUR SADNESS. I CONDUCTED A 6-MONTH RESEARCH, INCLUDING WRITING TO YSL. WELL, HERE IT IS: THE FRAGRANCE NOTE THAT IS MISSING IS CARNATION. APPARENTLY THERE IS SOME TYPE OF REGULATION ON USING CARNATION OIL AND ITS' IMPORTATION. UNLESS THIS NOTE IS DE-REGULATED, WE WILL NEVER EXPERIENCE THE EXOTIC AND SENSUAL FRAGRANCE MOST OF HAVE USED FOR 20 TO 30 YEARS. I USED TO SAY, "A DAY WITHOUT OPIUM IS LIKE A DAY WITHOUT SUNSHINE." I HAVE SEARCHED FOR A FRAGRANCE THAT COMES CLOSE TO OPIUM WITH NO LUCK. I HAVE, THEREFORE, SWITCHED OVER TO CHANEL COCO NOIR. IF YOU WANT CARNATION TOP NOTES, GO WITH L'AIR DU TEMPS, BUT NOTHING CAN REPLACE OPIUM. I WOULD PAY DOUBLE IF YSL WOULD BRING IT BACK.. SORRY OPIUM LOVERS--ITHIS STORY DOESN'T HAVE A HAPPY ENDING.

Disappointed- Not the Original scent

Nov 10, 2016

Wore Opium since 1976. Loved it. The new bottle I just bought doesnot have the same scent. Very Disappointed.

great gift for my mom she loved it.

Dec 24, 2016

MY MOM WAS VERY HAPPY TO THIS WITH HER INTIALS ON THE BOTTLE.

The new formula is a great disappointment !!

Jul 28, 2016

New formula is a great disappointment! Wore the original for over 30 years.

Absolutely amazing

Dec 25, 2016

I've bought this scent for years at Macy's. It is so amazing and I love it. It's not super fruity or florally. It has a wonderful blend of scents that really make it stand out from anything else around. Other "opium" perfumes that try to mimic this fail and fall short in quality and scent.
