This is a review of the current formulation on shelves (2009).. I have never tried the vintage version, so I cannot comment on how this differs, but from what I read online it is quite different....

I'm surprised to discover that a loud, rich, late 70s perfume smells much better in summer. I get mostly spicy orange, with just a hint of sandalwood, patchouli, and incense. In colder months, I...

The current Opium doesn’t know what it wants to be. It smells as if the vintage version were sent through a disinfecting chamber to remove all of its character, and then doused with rubbing...

This is/was an iconic fragrance that I tried in the early 90's (maybe even the late 80's??). Super-strong, heady, spicy and amber-ish with notes of clove/nutmeg and sweetness (tonka bean?).

I began wearing this in the late 70s, when I was in jr high! It is absolutely addictive. Heavy, warm oriental spice and musk and smoke and vanilla and amber and incense - Opium is spiritual *and*...

I hate to give this bad review because I realize this is a very good quality and iconic scent. I'm sure it smells divine on certain people but it just is not for me. To me, this smells like a...

I have held off from reviewing this as I remember the original as my Mum liked it. It was a real heavy hitter and one bottle lasted years. So with trepidation, and in desperate need of finding a...

I've worn this scent off and on since I was 17, when my college boyfriend purchased it for me the year it came out. It's rich rich rich... redolent of the late 70's decadence when it first came...

YSL Opium was one of my first true love fragrances back in the 80's. I love spicy, lush type perfumes. They evoke a sense of mystery and are exotic in their own way. I find this type of...
