Beast mode longevity. Starts off with a very strong almond extract top that mellows after 20-30 minutes. This scent changed on me all day, sometimes sweet, sometimes powdery, the whole time smooth and bit of a masculine edge but not distractingly so. Lasted 12 hours easily. Despite the lasting power it doesn't have huge projection. I like it but don't love it. I will wear again

(Now known as just Opoponax)

I find myself surprised at how many people smell lavender in this when there is nothing in it that would give it the sharply herbal, laundry soap smell that lavender means to me. I get an effervescent hello of citrus that quickly mellows into the warm, rich, resinous, sandalwood accented amber glow that I so love in this. Comforting fires, cashmere throws …

I found a bottle of this scent in TKMaxx for £9.00 and thought
I blind buy it and give it a try. How glad I am that I did - it's a sweet, rich, resinous, sultry gem that will be perfect for the cooler months. Opoponax is a sweet myrrh that smells divine and was highly regarded by King Solomon. Think "Song of Songs" when you apply this!

This is gorgeous, a deep, almost syrupy opoponax scent. I love it in the cooler months. It smells rich and golden and glowing. This one's all about the basenotes; the drydown lasts forever. Layers beautifully with another favorite, Les Nereides Patchouli Antique.

I guess I'm the strange one here, because I don't detect any powder at all (hate powder) and in no way do I think this is masculine. It's not sweet or flowery, and I would say it's a winter scent. I don't smell citrus either, which I dislike. I would put it in the oriental catagory...amber, a touch of adult vanilla to sweeten it up and of course opoponax, but all …Read more

Many reviewers below have hit the nail on the head with this one. I don't however, smell any white flowers or in any way associate this perfume with white, cashmere, silk or scarves. It opens with a fresh herbal citrus men's aftershave smell, but this lasted but a few minutes. Then it morphed into what reviewers below are talking about - a sweet, honey vanillic amber resinous scent. Yes …Read more

Think of this scent as if it were a warm white cashmere scarf or, even better, a cardigan made of the same material. This is the sensation yuo get with Impérial Opoponax: a very cozy and warm frag.
Starts somehow fresh/citrusy and greenish to morph immediately in a warm caramel/vanilla note, plus some white flowers that give way almost immediately to the "cozy" part, the myrrh and …

This one is fantastic if you want big, smooth, flowing myrrh. For me, personally, it was too much. Too strong and too perfumey. I do like it much more than Annick Goutal's Myrrhe Ardente.

IO starts out with a rather masculine cologne top - sort of a clean citrus, then gradually dries into opoponax (also known as sweet myrrh) vanilla heaven. Very smooth and balsam like, sweet and resinous. It isn't too strong, but lasts and lasts. I really liked it on me, but loved it on my husband. He felt it was bit on the feminine side for his liking, though. I'm going to buy a …Read more
