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.

Opium Eau De Parfum Spray is rated 2.9375 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from So disappointed 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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Opium Changed 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from OPIUM MYSTERY SOLVED 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hate what you have done to Opium receipe 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I MISS THE ORIGINAL OPIUM 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Signature Scent! 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!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from New Opium formula harsh - not enticing 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?

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!
