OPIUM, a window into an imaginary world.
The overtly sensual side of the Yves Saint Laurent perfume masterpiece is less assertive in the Eau de Toilette, but only a little.
A rich, oriental and spicy structure. 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.
Top Notes: mandarin, bergamot
Heart Notes: jasmine, Lily of the Valley, carnation
Base Notes: vanilla, patchouli, amber, myrrh

Very bad quality fragrance.I have been using Opium since i was 18 years old and i am still using it (I am now 53 years old). I have to say that since six years the odor is not the same as it used to be. It is not even close to it. I really cannot understand how can you ruin such a perfume. Please look into this matter since by this you will be losing this wonderful perfume's customers. BTW, i cannot use any other perfume because i feel that this one personalizes me. Moreover, i bought it from different countries in order to check if it differs from one country to another. But no, it is the same poor Opium fragrance.
Sorry for my very bad review, but this is the truth and it is a pity for this perfume was one of a kind.

missing original scentsI have worn Opium since I was 16, now in 50's and over time the fragrance has changed and does not stay on very long. I miss the original fragrance. Please bring back the original scents.

Poor Sprayer on new bottle designI 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!!

Diffuser DOES NOT DIFFUSEI 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 miss Opium. Whatever this is, is awfulI tend to wear Opium in the cooler months. I had two large bottles so it has been some time since I have had the need to purchase my beloved scent.
Brought my purchase home, gave a spritz and . . . . As others have noted what came out is a far cry from Opium. Compared to the original this is awful. Fortunately it no longer has the staying power so the aroma did not linger long.
This is so disappointing. A fine house would never do this to loyal patrons. Adieu my beloved.

Change it backI 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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

different scent!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 miss my OpiumI have been a fan of Opium since I purchased my first bottle of Opium in 1980. I loved it so! I could smell it on my clothes long after I applied it. I could smell it in the room. And it made me happy every time! No longer. I spray voluminous amounts on my clothes just to smell it but it dissipates almost immediately. It doesn’t carry the same rich tones anymore. What happened??? I won’t purchase another bottle of Opium after this bottle unless I know it has been changed back to it’s formal glorious fragrance
