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.

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.

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.

Extremely disappointed!

Oct 29, 2016

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.

Disappointed!

Oct 10, 2016

I have been wearing Opium for 30 years. The fragrance would last all day. Recently I used the last of my original scent. The new formula for Opium has changed. They removed the carnation oil due to import regulations. Now it doesn't have the sensual lasting fragrance any more. So sad! I loved the original formula! This new one... not so much! Shame!!!!

I hope they keep making this perfume forever

Oct 13, 2016

I know that the target market for this perfume is a little older than me but it is so sophisticated, works so well with my body chemistry, and I get tons of compliments on it. Also, it doesn't trigger sneezing in sensitive coworkers the way cheap body sprays do. I hope they keep making this forever. Not only would I recommend it to a friend; I have purchased it for a friend.

PLEASE bring the old formulation back!

Oct 11, 2016

I was stunned when I read all of the 1 star reviews! It was as if I was writing them myself. I too, have been wearing Opium since 1980. It was magical on me. I had a friend who also wore Opium and would ask me, what I was wearing because it had such a beautiful scent with my body chemistry. I won't wear the new one. Maybe will use up the bottle as air freshener in the bathroom. PLEASE listen to all of us who have been in love with you and supporting your company for 30+ years. Bring the OLD scent back, heart-broken!

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.

The new formula is a great disappointment !!

Jul 28, 2016

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

Opium revi

Aug 22, 2016

Very pleased with this purchase. Was out recently and received several compliments on how good I smelled. Have been an opium user for years.

Hate what you have done to Opium receipe

Nov 20, 2013

I've been wearing Opium for 30 years and I hate what you have done to the original receipe of this fragrance. It doesn't even smell like the original at all. You need to fix the change as you are losing customers. On ebay people are paying a fortune old half used bottles of the old original opium becaused they LOVE the smell of the old original fragrance.

So disappointed

Jan 29, 2013

Not the original! When I bought it for the first time I thought I got a counterfeit and took it back. The girl at the store had no clue about the change and didn't know the difference, Underlying scent is similar but whatever was added or changed is horrible. Been wearing Opium since high school and I'm so disappointed with the new formula. The new formula is too "old" of a scent for a young woman so I can't see how they think they will attract a new clientele. The original is better suited for young women. I've seen post after post on how loyal clients such as myself are disgusted by the change. Please bring it back! I'd love to know why YSL did this!

New Opium formula harsh - not enticing

Apr 5, 2012

Not what I expected. Have been a long-time fan of what I thought was a classic. I ordered a new bottle and thought I'd been scammed. NOTHING like the original formula that I loved. Yves St Laurent -- Why would you change such a sensual recognizable scent into bug bomb?

Opium spray

Sep 28, 2014

I have worn this scent for over 30 years. I now only use the crème as the spray does not smell the same. I even thought maybe I was being shipped OLD merchandise. Please change it back. It is my signature scent. Other people have noticed the difference too!!

Opium Changed

Nov 19, 2014

I have been wearing Opium since 1980. Always was known for my Scent. Now I can't even wear it. It smells nothing like it did. I have 2 bottles of the new revised scent and will be giving it away. Just finished the last of my Old bottle. Now I have to find a new Perfume. It's a SHAME Companies don't listen to their Customers. The new scent is nothing like the Original, nor does it last. Before I would have people stop me to ask what I was wearing. Now nothing. You should have just raised the price, instead of taking out the expensive ingredients. Very Disappointed.

I MISS THE ORIGINAL OPIUM

May 27, 2015

I HAVE USED OPIUM FOR THE PAST 30 YEARS AND WHEN I ORDERED IT...THOUGHT IT WAS JUST A BAD BOTTLE. THIS NEW SCENT IS BORING AND BEARS NO RESEMBLANCE TO THE CARNATION OIL THAT WAS IN ORIGINAL OPIUM...YOU SHOULD HAVE CHANGED THE NAME OR LOOKED FOR AN OIL SIMILAR TO CARNATION. I AM STILL SEARCHING IN VAIN FOR A FRAGRANCE THAT HAS THAT POWERFUL SCENT.

Signature Scent!

Jun 22, 2012

This has been my favorite for thirty years. There is nothing like it... it is unforgettable! I get an abundance of compliments, I especially like the ones from handsom men!

My tip: I put the empty bottles in my bedroom drawers... clothes smell great. Actually, I have so many my room smells great!

What happened? LOve OPIUM, afraid to order-formula change..

Nov 13, 2015

Hi, I joined this site to order my all time favorite perfume OPIUM. I miss it so much,I joined this sight! But i am afraid to now because they say you changed the formula.? I this true? You cannot change a perfect fragrance in any way! It is like cooking! Would cake be the same with no eggs? Help!! Do I order this or can you send me a sample and let me be the judge? Thank you!
