Customer Reviews
OPIUM EDP is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 65.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from So disappointed Not the original! When I bought it for the first time I thought I got a counterfeit and took it back. The girl at the store had no clue about the change and didn't know the difference, Underlying scent is similar but whatever was added or changed is horrible. Been wearing Opium since high school and I'm so disappointed with the new formula. The new formula is too "old" of a scent for a young woman so I can't see how they think they will attract a new clientele. The original is better suited for young women. I've seen post after post on how loyal clients such as myself are disgusted by the change. Please bring it back! I'd love to know why YSL did this!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Reformulate Back to Original Formula I have worn only Opium since 1979. I loved it but am saddened to have to search for a new signature fragrance. I noticed a change about two to three years ago. I understand that YSL has tweaked its formula in anticipation of various laws in Europe. YSL has tweaked out the basic character of Opium, it lacks the lusciousness, headiness and staying power of the original formula. In this day and time I would have thought that your chemists could have done a better job with the reformulation. If you can not recreate the original character, I wish you would just discontinue the line. To add to all of this, several years ago I made inquiry with YSL about a change in formula - your response was "no change". I am so disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from BEWARE! SOMETHING HAS CHANGED Opium is the only parfum I’ve used since the late 1970’s. My husband buys it for me every Christmas. I won’t use any other. I absolutely love Opium. However, I was gravely disappointed Christmas 2017. The fragrance has change drastically. The scent isn’t the same and it doesn’t last on your skin. Bring back the REAL OPIUM and then ORIGINAL SPRAY UNREMOVABLE SORAY CAP. If consumers pay the asking price listed then all consumers deserve the REAL OPIUM in its ORIGINAL state. If YSL has changed the scent of Opium then YSL should not be charging as so much for a fragrance that doesn’t smell like Opium and doesn’t last all day. The real Opium lasted all day long and I received compliments everyday on the scent. I would always say it’s YSL Opium Parfum that you smell.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Where's the original Opium????? I have been wearing Opium Eau De Partum Spray for 40+ years. Your new version should not be called Opium! It smells nothing like the original! After receiving a new bottle as a gift. I tried it on and could not believe how it smells. I thought it must be old or something was wrong with it. l went to return it and was shocked to find you changed it. Why would you mess up something so perfect? Bring it back please! I have been looking into this and found that l'm not alone. Many people feel the same way. Make your customers happy once more, bring it back!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What did you do to Opium!? This version smells downright masculine to me, the old one has that somewhat sour and spicy nuance (carnation) with it and civet and coconut and bay leaf, where are they!!? I kept being optimistic that you still respect the classic by still producing it. I get it. But following the IFRA because of allergic prescriptions? Just don't sell Opium to sick people, that simple. You ruined everything even Rive Gauche! Don't get me wrong, I'll still buy it because it is somewhat Opium but I'm really disappointed, bring her back. She doesn't even last long :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Opium Changed I have been wearing Opium since 1980. Always was known for my Scent. Now I can't even wear it. It smells nothing like it did. I have 2 bottles of the new revised scent and will be giving it away. Just finished the last of my Old bottle. Now I have to find a new Perfume. It's a SHAME Companies don't listen to their Customers. The new scent is nothing like the Original, nor does it last. Before I would have people stop me to ask what I was wearing. Now nothing. You should have just raised the price, instead of taking out the expensive ingredients. Very Disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I read the "One's" and now I understand Something happened to Opium. The last two times I purchased it I knew something was wrong. After reading the reviews listed as One I now understand those people had the same experience. I would love to buy some Paris but I'm afraid YSL may have changed the fragrance as they did with Opium. Please bring back the real Opium!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Opium perfume What is happening to opium perfume??? It's not like before. The scent lasted for hours on the old version. This new version opium is almost like buying a simple body mist for $10.00 But worse than a simple spray. It don't last more than a hour. It's like spraying water scent mist. The only perfume I buy is opium. I used this perfume or toilette since 1992. I also have a variety collection of the old version. Can you please change the perfume back to the old version please.
