Almost the most magical scent for me among the thousands of scents that I've smelt. I am looking to purchase ANY vintage Opium, Youth Dew, Cinnabar or Dior Poison-ALL MUST BE VINTAGE!!! Message me and let me know what you have and asking price. If I should say just one fact about Opium 1977 /the most important one/, I have to mention that this perfume is so invasive and absorbing that it makes you believe this scent has become an integral part of your bloodstream. The version I have is less round and less animalic, very much more incense. My vintage bottle got YSL perfume corps label on it, probably one of the first formulations. I was able to find an affordable one from the mid 90s, similar to the tall bottle above.The new formulation is bearable, but nothing compares to this one... I remember spraying this perfume from my mother's dresser whenever I went for a night out. On another note, brian.fitzgerald's review is wonderful... Additionally this formulation looms infinitely large over the softer, sweeter, weaker iteration of the EDP released in 2009.Very different from the more modern scents, but I admire all the notes it gives off- incense, jasmine, sandalwood... Although I am Italian I enjoy singing Bulerias, Spanish gypsy songs and they all evoke Opium. This perfume is hot to open: fiery cloves that make your upper lip prickle with sweat coupled with a wisp of delicately sweet incense.
This is a vintage but unique and outstanding perfume.To recap: it's a masterpiece, but to me all I smell is a grandmother holding a baby at a grand cathedral during a funeral mass. I tried Coco, Obsession, Cinnabar...nothing gets me like Opium! I'm wearing the vintage formula eau de toilette version from a mini bottle.I bought this size because I have zero experience with this scent and was a little nervous trying it out after reading some poor reviews. I keep getting these gorgeous wafts of spice-tinged, creamy, almost gourmandish wafts of fragrance.At first I was confused and kept checking myself to make sure it was me I was smelling, lol!The fragrance morphed from first application and I had no idea it would change into this. In fact in risk of being hit with tomatos I feel this is more wearable than my sig scent Youth Dew.
