Women's Fragrance

What it is

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 Opium Eau De Parfum- Legacy Fragrance I received my Opium Eau De Parfum Spray and am happy that I can still get it. Opium has been around for over 40 years because I was in my 20's when I first bought it. Back in the day you could order the shower gel, body cream, body moisturizer, body powder, Eau De Toilette,& of course the Parfum. It saddens me to know that now only the Toilette & Parfum are available. I have read reviews from other users on other websites and they share the same concerns. I hope Opium Fragrance does not get discontinued. There are many fans of Opium, the original.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not the original formula not the same as the original formula that Yves St Laurent created. Since he died another company took over...and yes, they did not use the original ingredients as they are expensive and come from oils of a number of richly scented plants and flowers...some like this new version..but if you can get the original it is gorgeous.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Insult To A Legend The name needs to be changed. It's an INSULT to the Original. Tried with diligence to achieve some sort of "resemblance" . It was embarrassing to go out wearing this. Was as though a knock off one would find in a drugstore. Absolute Insult to the Original Queen....my Opium. And yes, IT will be going back. Chance perfume will become my "go to", but not my favorite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely the Best Fragrance I cannot tell you how many compliments I get all during my day as I wear this original Opium!! It is absolutely the best fragrance I own, and I have many. I collect perfumes & bottles and have been wearing this for over 40 years!! It is very sensual & drives men wild, my beau can’t keep his hands off me when I’m wearing it. The body lotion is fantastic too!!! I don’t care for Black Opium at all!!! I’m truly asking YSL, do NOT phase out this perfume!!! You will certainly loose me as a customer, amongst many others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite! Since I was in my teens and Opium came out, I wanted to wear it! My mom made me wait until I was I think 16 years old and bought me a bottle. I love this perfume so much! The spicy oriental scent, the exotic feel, the compliments, just the way the scent makes me feel so emotionally empowered, sensual, and yes very sexy! I have gotten so many compliments on my Opium, and just today, my niece said that whatever you're wearing smells so good on you. It's my Opium!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from from a man's perspective... i'm a man so this brief review will be from a man's point of view... i find the scent of 'opium eau de parfum' as a very pleasant one when worn by a woman and it also now has been my mother's favorite perfume for years... therefore she gets a bottle of this stuff from me at least once a year, either for her b-day or xmas... however, she's convinced that the scent of the original opium parfum from a couple of decades before was much better and that the formula must have been changed quite some time ago... i also seem to remember the scent being somewhat different years ago, it was more musky, exotic, heady, seductive, intoxicating yet simultaneously luxurious according to my 'scent memory'... now, i remember it primarily as worn by another couple of women i knew over the years in the past and i always really loved its scent; few other perfumes had as strong an effect on me back then... although the sense of smell, along with most other senses, tends to dull and change with age of course and thus i could easily chalk my different memory of its scent under this aspect, i've noticed so many other women who are long term fans of this perfume insisting that the formula is now different that it must be true... nevertheless, the present scent of the apparently 'newer' formula is imo still a very pleasant and luxurious one... in fact i probably wouldn't want to perceive my mom as wearing a sexy, intoxicating, seductive scent hahaha so i'm quite fine with buying this 'new' more tame smelling opium perfume for her presently... };->

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only fragrance I wear - EVER! I have been wearing Opium Original for 35-40 years. I can no longer easily find this in finer department stores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing. Classic. Spicy. Warm. The Best! While I was at first sad when Opium reformulated, due to newer regulations and some materials unobtainable or too scarce...I noticed the change! But, the change is not that different, and I have grown to love current Opium as much (or more) than older Opium. While current Opium edP lasts a very long time and does project....it is not quite as nuclear as before. I mean, yes, you still need to apply cautiously, but it is not as overly strong as it used to be. Also, Opium is so spicy and warm...it is AS good on a man as a woman. Even UK GQ voted Opium as a fragrance that men SHOULD wear too. Merci YSL!

Questions & Answers

Want to know if the original oil based opium perfume is still available. In the dabbler bottle not a spray bottle!

Asked by: Kathy
I have searched the YSL website and did not find any fragrance in a “dabber” bottle!  Everything was a spray.  The sprays are non-aerosol.  I did not even find a “splash” type of application available.  Sorry, I couldn’t help. You might try eBay (if you dare).

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?

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??

Asked by: Anonymous
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.

For YEARS I have been using Opium and would not dream of buying anything else. However, the last time I purchased it, I was disappointed. I am not able to shop for myself and asked someone to bring me a bottle expecting the same thing. The square bottle was brought to me and it does not have the same fragrance of the taller bottle. Have you changed packaging as well as the formula? Where can I purchase my old favorite?

I disagree with Mark as I think a man can easily wear this as long as it is done with moderation. There are certainly other mens' colognes that are rich and 'spicy' like Opium. The Parfum or EDP is likely too strong for a man, but I certainly don't have a problem with the occasional spray of EDT. I get a lot of compliments - and some are from guys who want to try it themselves.
