Lori M: First - I have been an opium user for more than 20 years.... Love it.
Was very disappoint when the original oil was discontinued! I have now ordered 2 of the new body oils. Not quite the same but close! Little lighter oil than original. But the scent is wonderful especially when layered with shower gel and perfume. In the morning, I use shower gel and oil, at night I add the body cream and perfume.
I still received compliments - even from strangers walking by. And of course, who doesn't love compliments! Have fun!

Beth K: It is not a new product but was taking off the market for awhile and re-packaged. It does not smell as good as the product they had a few years back. This one also seems to have more water content then the old one. As much as I love and use all the Opium Products for over 30 years now, I found the Body Oil Spray to be disappointing. Sep 10, 2014

Christine T: For me it is a new product.

Thomas O: The scent is not the same as the past version. It does not spray on as readily as the past version. The resulting feel on my skin is not as silky as the past version. Sep 10, 2014

Diane G: It appears to be the same wonderful scent when applying-
However the old scent lasted much longer, so I can only assume
this is a new formula.

Christine W: I have enjoyed the Opium Body Oil since I frst found it in Canada, 20 or so years ago. It has been very difficult to find in US. I found it agin last Christmas. I love it. The fragrance is somewhat "softer" than the perfume, and seems to last several hours in a soft more subtle way. It is wonderful layered, or worn as is for a softer fragrance suitable for work. The oil is very fine and disappears quickly on the skin. Hope you enjoy as much as I do. Mar 26, 2014

MA A: Am disappointed as it's not the same as the previous Opium Body Oils that I've had,
which seems to be the same for the entire product line.
It is a much lighter scent and oil than the last one I had (in glass, also with a push down nozzle), for me it does not last as long because it doesn't have the same body.
Have been using this on my pulse points as perfume since the scent change a few years ago. Unfortunately, I have chemical sensitivities and this is the only scent I've ever been able to use without developing a headache.

Ellen H: I started using the body oil when I travel as its easier to carry than the body creme. What I've found so far is that body oil is absorbed into the skin quickly and you have to use a lot to get much of a scent. I don't think it is as true to the fragrance as the body creme and the scent does not last long at all. I don't plan to buy any more body oil and will stick with the lotion/creme Mar 24, 2014

Diane G: It is not the same as the original spray that I loved from
15-20 years ago. I use it daily and it does not last as long
or have that same wonderful aroma. That being said I still use it
and hope that sometime they will reinvent the original body oil mist spray.

Customer Reviews

Opium Body Oil

Overall rating

I have been wearing Opium every winter for as long as I can remember and still love the scent however, this product does not live up to the description on YSL beauty. It does not spray in a mist, which is specifically what I was looking for. It comes out of the nozzle in a stream which is not nearly as effective for overall moisturizing, especially on those hard to reach areas like the back. The stream is strong enough that the oil just drips down the body unless you have your other hand free and ready to spread it around. Definitely not worth the price

I have a different opinion of the Opium Body Oil. I am very, very pleased with it. Of course, it has that wonderful and warm scent that is so beautiful it is beyond words. After showering I mix a spritz of Opium Body Oil into my damp hair before styling, or before allowing my hair to air-dry. It leaves a light, but lasting scent of Opium in my hair. My husband loves the smell of it in my hair when we hug! It is not at all strong either, and hours later if I take a whiff of my hair, I can still smell it (subtly, of course). Its also a wonderful alternative to the body lotion for layering and lasting moisture. Its not at all greasy either. Just wonderful, lasting, moisturizing luxury. Mmmmmm.
