Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by How to say Thank You A Special gift for a special friend so had to be something she would not buy for herself on a regular basis. 04 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A timeless classic. To be honest it took me a little while to learn to like Opium. That intense top note bursts through and can be a little intimidating. But as the scent settles, Opium really comes to life. It has a real warmth that lingers for hours - mandarin, bergamot on top, myrrh and jasmine at the heart, laced with deeper amber notes at the base, this is a true oriental scent. It's an evocative fragrance, full of mystery and intrigue and yet stays so sensuous. Definitely not for the faint of heart. This is for a woman who wants to be remembered, and who wants to turn heads - exactly what Yves Saint Laurent wanted from his women! 01 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gorgeous, sexy fragrance Whenever I wear Opium I get stopped by people who want to know what it is and where they can buy it! So refreshing after trying lots of sickly sweet perfumes that seem to be everywhere. A little goes a long way - a really indulgent treat. 02 December 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by lovely perfume I have used this perfume for over 30 years, and always loved it. Why have they decided to put it into this ridiculous huge bottle. Some marketing whizz kid gone mad !! 31 December 2011
