The overtly sensual side of the Yves Saint Laurent perfume masterpiece is less assertive in the Eau de Toilette, but only a little. The opulent, decadent character is immediately apparent from the immediate swoon of mandarin and bergamot notes, deepened by myrrh, jasmine and carnation. Amber unlocks the final note… and the heart of the woman who wears it. In a chic Chinoiserie-inspired flacon.

Alma B: I have just recently discovered this formula of Opium. I used to think that an eau de toilette would be too watered down to last through the day. I was wrong!

Alycon P: I thought it was the original formula, but found out otherwise. A Nordstrom employee explained that the International Fragrance Board banned certain ingredients several years ago, and that's why the old fragrance cannot return. I wish your representatives had simply told me that when I called. I recently discovered that even Macy's did not know the formula had been changed. Apr 13, 2013

Joan M: YSL truly needs to address the question of whether or not the formula has been changed from the original. They should do this PUBLICLY and OFFICIALLY to quell all of the doubt and questions regarding this fragrance. To not address this openly is disingenuous and fraudulent, especially knowing that many customers are concerned and suspicious. Customers should not have to call them to ask. Please address this officially! Nov 15, 2013

A shopper asked: Is there a difference between Eau de Toilette spray and Eau de Toilette spray for women? Feb 15, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (2) No (0)
J F A: I am not aware of the variation - I believe that the Eau de Toilette spray IS for women, not men. Perhaps that represents just a change during production, but I do not think that there is any difference.

Personally, I prefer the parfum because it lasts longer - I do not need as much when applied, and the fragrance seems to last longer throughout the day..

Renee C: I have used this for 20+ years as well and have gotten bottles that do not smell like the original at all, even w/the old packaging. Very disappointing. I'm very leary of buying it online any more because of this and Opium is not easy to find at any retail outlet. Apr 28, 2012

Kim M: I order Opium Eau De Toilette Spray and Parfum frequently and have not noticed any "difference" in either form of this wonderful fragrance.

A shopper asked: What has happened to OPIUM Eau De Toilette Spray? It no longer has the beautiful fragrance it had three years ago, plus it no longer lingers on the body. The fragrance immediately evaporates. Is too much alcohol added? I no longer get compliments like I used to.

Alycon P: Brenda: Opium EDT has, unfortunately, been reformulated, and I share your disappointment. Recently I inquired of YSL whether the company might consider re-introducing the original formula alongside the new one, but was told that no such plan is being considered. I even went so far as to inquire of a major department store's fragrance counter staff whether they could tell me what fragrance other disgruntled Opium users have been purchasing as an alternative to Opium, but even they did not realize that Opium had been changed. Like you, I no longer receive compliments, and, sad to say, I will be moving on to another fragrance for the first time in two decades. Feb 2, 2013

Joyce R: I've been using Opium exlusively ( I won even let the sales rep in a department store spray me with a sample of a fragrance!) for more than 20 years. I actually have had people stop me on the street to ask me what perfume I' m wearing.....I love Opium!!! I never even knew there was another scent!!! So, I gave no idea what you're talking about!!
Would love to hear the answer from YSL !!

Jane L: I have not noticed a difference, however if you have ask youself these questions. 1) have you gone on a new medicine or has the dosage changed.
2) have you gained weight, this will also effect your smell. 3) if you have reached menopause, this also will effect your smell.

A shopper asked: I bought a bottle of opium and cream set. It is not the same smell. I have been wearing Opium for years, received many complements. I wear it everyday.
Why did the scent change. I do not like the new scent at all. When is the scent we love going to be on the market??
I will have to find a different scent if it does not return. Will you let me know???.

Jan Z asked: I've been wearing Opium for over 20 years. I just purchased the 'new' bottle and cannot believe the difference in the product. It is no longer the 'essence' smell but a strong smell. Whatever you changed gave me an immediate headache! I have no idea what to do since I'm known for my opium. Is there a way to buy only the 'classic' and not the new formula? I do not like it and will be returning it. Jun 6, 2012

Alice K: I have also been wearing Opium over 25 years, and like you, people always compliment the way Opium smells on me. I used to wear the perfume but now wear the Eau de Toilette along with the shower gel, or sometimes the body cream. (I used to use the soap as well, and wish YSL would re-introduce it!). I have not noticed a change in the fragrance at all. I do not like the Belle d'Opium. Perhaps you bought that by mistake? I think layering the fragrance works really well and keeps the scent alive all day. Jun 6, 2012

Sydney M asked: What has changed in the ingredients?? I have my precious old bottle (4.2 oz) of the Opium perfumed body oil spray which is intoxicating to my man. The new perfume smells nothing like this and the body oil spray can no longer be found. When can I find some of the old batch, for something is sorely missing in the new mix. Sydney Feb 10, 2014

Kimberly G: I admit I did sense a change in the composition of the spray as well as the body cream which I love. I know what you are talking about and it is almost as if the sensual warmth that would be present is now missing. Smells similar but yet not.

I to miss the body oil which I loved as well. I did not care for all the versions of this product that YSL tired to introduce. Stick to the standards - when it is good don't change it.

Kathleen C: Dear Sydney

I agree with you, the Opium perfumed body oil spray is not available anymore, at least not in this country. I plan to buy some in Paris this summer as I understand it's still available there. I've worn Opium since it came on the market and the perfume is still tops. The formula hasn't changed for the perfume, just the spray.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Carole T: Opium has been my fragrance of choice for about forty years now, or as long as I can remember, anyway.
To know if the 'recipe' has changed, you would have to ask the company that makes it.
As for me, I can tell no difference between the fragrance that I put on today and the fragrance I wore back at the very beginning.
It is simply a part of my life.

JUDITH C: Money should be no object when you want the best for yourself. I've been wearing Opium Eau De Toilette spray now for 20 plus years. I'm glad they finally came back with the dusting powder. I use the shower gel and body lotion and moisturer too.

I love it all. I'm extremely happy with Yvess Saint Laurence products. I just love spoiling myself with them.

Reply to Mary L. Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Mo A: Hi Mary,
It took me a fair while but i finally figure out that the 'stopper' is like a cork and simply pops out, but my one was crooked (somehow) ....like when you put the lid back on a jar crooked and it can get stuck if you screw it down too hard..... so I got the back of my Mouse Pad (yes, thats right my Mouse Pad) and put that on the stopper and twisted one way while i twisted the bottle the other way...firmly, but gently.
The bottle actually does not have to come out of the plastic hard cover ...but I did discover it kind of pushes upward from the outer bottom corners so that the bottle 'can' be removed from the plastic case IF you want it out...but I really had to play around with it to get there.

I hope this helps you. And THANK YOU for answering my query too. GOOD LUCK

Opium Eau De Toilette Spray

Overall rating

I don't have a lot of money, and I saved for months to buy a new bottle of Opium. I've used it for over 20 years and loved it. Now, I regret having wasted my money on the new stuff. The scent is simply NOT the same as before. I used to have people ask what I was wearing. Now, they just want to know what that strong "floral" smell is. Please change it back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was a little surprised with the new bottle, but completely shocked that the fragrance has also changed. Not by much,but it is definately different. I have been an opium girl since 1979 and something is very different here. All but one fragrance sales people have assured me that the fragrance has not changed. Anyone else find this?

I have been buying and using Opium since 1977. I just bought 2 bottles and for the first time ever, I am disappointed. The bottle is different and the sprayer is awful. It smells very different. I thought it was me so I sprayed some from a new bottle on a tissue and some from my old bottle on a tissue and it is a very different smell. I had other people to smell and they to thought it was different. PLEASE CHANGE IT BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have used this product for many years as I love love love the fragrance (and so do others I come in contact with!!) The unfortunate problem is that they changed a good thing....the bottle!! In April 2011 I purchased a new bottle in the duty free shop in BC and have had nothing but problems with it ever since. The sprayer is absolutely terrible. It sprays a stream instead of a spray right past your point of direction...the lid continuously falls off and having to have that plastic topper on it at all times so that it doesn't spray when it shouldn't is a real nuisance...I wish I could return it and find an old bottle somewhere or figure out how to open it and pour the contents into another spray bottle....too bad...this product is expensive but I don't mind paying for it....until now!!

I ADORE the fragrance, but I am soooooooo disappointed in the current diffuser on 1.6oz bottle. The retailer was kind enough to replace what I thought was possibly just a defective spray attachment, but the second bottle shoots a river of fragrance the same way. The stream hits, then runs off your arm, or down your cleavage, or it turns just enough to spray right past my head, wasting my fabulously extravagant fragrance. Is this your plan to get me to buy more product? YSL PLEASE CHANGE DIFFUSER!!!

I do love opium and have been wearing it for years! However I bought a new bottle recently and really don't like the cheap top. It comes off in your hand and the its sprays like a garden hose. I wish you would change the spray top. But,oh I love the smell !
