3.4 out of 5
Terrible. Overpowering and cheap smallish.
This is a beautiful scent, but a bit strong for indoors.....perfect for your active days.
The smell is very strong
My all time favorite....long lasting but subtle scent, it's spicy but not over powering!!! LOVE THIS SCENT !!!!!
This perfume smells so good- but the scent reminds me of my grandma. This is a special occasion perfum for me
I love this scent. It's one of my favorite. Very district and strong. Lasts all day.
It is a nice scent but very strong. I'm in love with Black Opium and wanted to see what this one was about but I gave it to one of my besties, who LOVES it... so... It totally just depends on your personal taste/preference.
I did not care for this scent. It was too masculine and strong for me.
It was a bit too strong smelling for me
i didnt like this one, it semlt like old lady.
Its a great smell for older women
I like it, but it reminds me of an much older woman. It is seductive, but I think it is too mature for me.
Smells like dove soap
It was a very strong scent. It puts me in the mind of Estée Lauder's Youth Dew.
Not my favorite. Kinda smells like an old lady perfume
This perfume smells horrible to me. I feel like I wasted my $14 for the month of december. I absolutely do not like this, & this is the first perfume I've choose so far that I haven't liked. I figured I might like this one because I absolutely love love love the black opium one by YSL but I was wrong
love this scent, lasts a long time and you only need one squirt!
I really enjoyed this fragrance how ever I don't think this is a good smell for me as my fiance says I smell like a stripper. It could be too mature for me
It's a great scent..... but it reminds me waaaay toooo much of my dad's cologne in the 1980's (Cardin by Pierre Cardin). I'm not saying it smells like cologne or a manly scent, it just smells too close to one particular cologne. Still smells good, but not for me.
Not for me
It smells like old lady. I do not like it at all!
Kind of smelled "old-ladyish." Not what I was looking for.
Perfume for a much older woman.
I am so in love with this perfume, my mom has copd and she can smell this with no issues
Ew. Smells like an old lady.
I really liked this one.
A bit too heavy and like potpourri.
Awesomeness and sticks with you all day!
This smells lovely. Like high end baby powder. Makes me feel like a fancy established woman, lol. I like it a lot.
I only got it cause that's what my mother used to wear growing up, it's kind of nostalgic for me, it smells horrible lol, but I think that's only cause it's soooo strong and my mom used to drown out the bathroom with it, 4 squirts and it spelled like this perfume in that bathroom literally all day long lol
This perfume smells like somebody's grandma. It was disgusting. I threw it away!
It's ok smells like an older woman
Smells like Old man fart, and/ or Grandmas perfume
Love this scent. A little goes a long way.
Something is just off with this. It doesn't smell luxurious at all. Smells like a cheap imitation of the "original" opium. Not sure if it changed or if my sense of smell is more refined but this perfume is not for me. 👎🏼👎🏼 Two thumbs down.
Nota fan at all. I love the black opium and thought I would like this but
Not a fan. Wish I could try something else!
It smells nice. However, I tried Black Opium first and I loved it! This wasn't quite as good, in my opinion
Super disappointed in this one
My favorite fragrance of all time.
The scent was a little stronger than I remember from the one I had but that was several years ago,hoping that the next one is better but that what this is all about try it before you buy.
I've loved ALL my Scentbird scents...until this one. Not a fan of Opium. :(
I have used Opium and this was not Opium...horrible...essance of old lady or OLD Avon.
Awful. My daughter and I did not like it. We gave it away immediately. I would describe it as a perfume that's been stored away for years, overly strong.
Too strong I don't care for it not like I remembered
This is a spicy warm scent that is perfect for the Winter. For me it reminds me of my college roommate who had a bottle and we wore it all the time.
The crimson sun sinks behind us under a blanket of rippling waters. She touches my face and I feel warm. Her hand against my face erases my fears, dries my tears, and has kept me safe all these years. She holds me close and I see our heartbeats slow dancing in her eyes. The air is sweet, and our love is aromatic. Opium The fragrance of our love
I love, love, love this fragrance. It's the right smell for me. It's not a fruity or flowery Fragrance that doesn't work for me. If you want more of a spicy scent, then this is for you. Just a couple squirts and it lasts for days (on my coat). 💝💝💝💝💝
Not what i remember.
Love it! People just want to hug me because my scent is so alluring!!!
Love this - always a great classic. This was actually purchased for my mother, it has always been her favorite.
I didn't like his because I was expecting it to be different...it mixes well with other scents but alone...I don't care for it
Love it!!! Love the spicy scent of patchouli.
The smell was to overpowering. I also thought it smelt a little old lady-ish. I ended up giving it away. I'm sad :(
Wayyyyy to strong! It immediately makes my nose burn and the scent almost has a chemical aspect to it. Not for me at all!
Not a fan. Mine smells mostly like baby powder. I was wanting something exotic and sexy. This isn't it. Reminds me of a more mature woman.
I don't like at all. Smells like a patchouli incense 😐.
Was to strong for me but my mom loved it, so 4 stars.
Love it. A little spicy and woodsy.
It's for a older women ;(
This is extremely potent and takes forever for the smell to be bearable. I will never get it again.
Honestly, this reminded me of an old lady perfume... too strong but not in an exotic musky way. Wish I had not picked this one! The after smell is much much better but still not liking it.
I love this. only thing is the scent doesn't last!
I absolutely love my Opium.
I absolutely love this scent even more then Black Opium.
I just received my Opium and I LOVE it. It's my all time favorite perfume and I wear it just about every day. But looking at the bottle, I have tons left. This is the best company to get new perfumes or keep receiving ol favorites. Signing up with Scentbird is the best thing I've done in a long time!
Love it. It is a very heavy scent
This is more of a men's cologne than a women's perfume
I was wanting to try this one so bad as I LOVE and have always loved my opium incense cones, but this one is a little too heavy for me overall. It is right in line with perfumes such as Poison that smells awesome also, but is a thick scent as well. So if you want a very nice heavy evening scent them this is for you!
Black Opium is ten times better!!!
I like it, but I LOVE the BLack Opium.
Loved the Scent. Not overpowering, but lasts for hours.
To musky for me :(
Love this stuff, but I loved it in the 80s too :) It's a little strong up front, but lasts a LOT longer than others. Definitely a fall/winter scent and more of spice, musk than a "clean and fresh" smell.
It was okay when I first smelled it. After I put it on and went about my day the smell just got worse. It smelled horrible.
I was very excited for this one. When I first sprayed it my initial reaction was, "Nooooo!" It reminds me of my mom's scent, which is not bad, it's just hers. But, once it dried down it turned to a musky, powdery scent which isn't too bad. I will definitely continue to try this, just not everyday. I will say I sprayed it only once and it has lasted most of the day. Initially it is very strong and almost gives me a headache. But once it dries down it's not so bad. This is what I love about scentbird. I'm dating the fragrance, I won't marry it, just have some fun with it every once in awhile.
Love...Love...Love Opim!!!! It's the best winter smell.. I could wear it everyday!!!
Not a fan. Smells like something an older woman would wear, not a 26 year old
Scent of a Dream in a trash bag
This is not for me, it smells like my grammy. God love her but this is way to strong and smells masculine on me when I applied it :(
This is a timeless & classic sophisticated scent. A little goes a LONG way! I love this sent! SO sexy, seductive and very complex. Perfect for evening out or winter scent.
This is one of my most favorite scents EVER! I was so happy to have it again. I love the musky, sensual scent, I will probably order this just about every other time!!!
I don't like the smell at first, too strong but a few hours later yes!
Not thrilled with this scent it's not quite how I remember it. Really, really STRONG.
Ick! It smells like my grandma's bathroom airfreshener
How many #1's can a person have. Opium has displaced all my other #1's" Can be worn day or night but in my opinion Opium is a sexy scent best worn evenings.
It was ok but not my favorite.
Just as I remember.. beautiful fall scent that stays with you!
I love it!
Love it! I adore rich warm and sexy scents like this one. I will definitely be buying the full sized version of this. It's perfect for fall.
sexy & seductive scent! Truly Timeless!!!
I haven't worn Opium since High School... it brought back fond memories of a younger time... I still like it.. but I don't remember it being so strong... I will buy it in the future but am looking forward to seeing what Black Opium smells like compared to this in my next order...
Loved. This fragrance is an exotic oriental. It's strong, so you don't need much. It's a mysterious and bold scent.
I love this perfume. I will definitely be buying this full-size
Not my favorite like the Black Opium better
I thought it was not a good choice
Wonderful scent! Starts a bit strong but evens out for a beautiful finish!
Got this one in and it smells amazing!
This scent is 100% my grandmas purse. That being said... Grandma was a classy, stylish lady... but this scent is too heavy, powdery and dated for me.
A warm, spicy concoction that will be perfect for cold autumn/winter days and nights. I spritz some on at bedtime and my man loves it! It's not a flirty, sweet, candy smelling perfume that is so popular right now. It's a sexy, head turning, spicy oriental. I don't find this old ladyish at all; however, I don't see it working for a young girl. This is a Woman`s perfume.
This is my all time favorite perfume, so of course, it was the first one I chose with my subscription that my husband bought me for my birthday. It is sophisticated and elegant, but still bright. It makes me feel feminine and powerful.
I love this scent! It's very sweet and powdery. Definitely not for everyone. A much more mature scent, for sure. I personally like fragrances that others may describe as "old lady-ish". I like strong distinct scents. I'm not a fan of fresh or citrusy. If I'm going to drop $100 on 3oz of liquid it needs to have substance. I save fruity and fresh for my body wash. That being said, this fragrance could absolutely overpower a person.
Loved this scent. Its kind of a woodsy scent but very light. This scent will last a long time as well.
Lovely sensual and sophisticated
My favorite of all times.
It was a little too strong for my taste teo squirts were over powering
To me, this smells like my 90 year old grandma... I am not at all a fan!!
I love this scent. At first, I was skeptical because it smelled a little strong and too "old-ladyish" but once I sprayed it on....I thoroughly enjoyed it. It has a nice soft finish. It is very different than what I expected at inital whiff. LOL.
