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.

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.

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.

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). 💝💝💝💝💝

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!

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.

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.

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.
