I remember wearing YSL Opium when I was in high school. And I crave it all of a sudden after all these years. This fragrance has been around for over 40 years. To me, it’s still the most exotic & potently seductive scent ever (men seem to love it). I don’t like heavy perfumes but this is the only exception. Some say Opium is not for young people but I beg to differ. I fell madly in love at first whiff when I was 18. It’s ageless. Also, I find the scent versatile enough to wear at any occasion from casual to formal, from office to party.
They couldn’t have picked out a better name ~ opium ~ so addictive! The older ad on the left is the best depiction of the fragrance in my opinion. I’m going to treat myself with a small bottle tomorrow. The perfect finishing touch to a Valentine’s Day outfit.
