Hi there! The color you are seeing is not the color of the fluid, but may seem tinted because the glass bottle has a dark color. As long as the fragrance smells as usual, it is safe to use. We hope you can continue to use this fragrance with great success!

I purchased black opium from debenhams I cant tell the difference when it's in the box but the one I got, i dont know but it doesn't last long on my body.i tried it on my body,went to sleep woke up and couldn't smell a thing.can u explain why?

Asked by: Drey
I have always had this problem. The last time I purchased it was from the brand site. This for me is a sweater perfume and I’m thinking maybe body chemistry bc It never last on my skin and I’ve never received a complaint on it . I adore the scent and bought it multiple times but this year I’m trying something different. I’ve received more complaints from drugstore perfumes that I mix with body sprays. I’m sorry your having this problem. is this your first time purchasing this?

Hi, why is there a color difference for black opium? I always use the pink one. Why do I get now the orange one? Is there a difference?
Asked by: Anonymous
YSL has really messed up a really good thing. The orange one has always been the original - theychanged the scent and didn't tell their customers, after what I can only hope is many complaints they introduced Opium Black. How sad that now faithful customers don't know what is the product they are receiving in what bottle.
