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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from please always make this! I've worn Opium scent since 1980. Every time I try another, people say 'it isn't YOU'. Funny how important these things become. I love this & have never tired of it. It's light, delicious & classic. Will always be my signature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Monogram plus Classic fragrance together. 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My all time favorite 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing 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.

Has anyone found another perfume that's similar to replace Opium? Ever since YSL changed the formula, I can only wear the body cream and lotion! It's not the same. I wish they would change it back!!

I HATE the new Opium!!! I have been looking for the original everywhere. Why oh why did they change it??? Hopefully it's like the "New Coke" and they will figure it out and bring back what we love.

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?

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 01, 2013

I adorre Opium Perfume and Have bought it for many years and have contstantly had wonderful comments on it and many men have inquired as to what it was so they can purchase for their wives ( True Story) However - since the New Bottle has come 0ut I think there is definitely a change in the fragrance - Yes it is still stunning - but I think not quite the same as it was before - What has been changed? I have used this perfume for as long as I can remember and because I love it so much My 42 yr old daughter wont buy it for herself as she considers it "Mums Perfume" so I truely have noticed a suttle change in aroma - Right Or Wrong??

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.

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.

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!
