Opium is one of those rare signature fragrances that draws pleasant comments. I rarely wear it without receiving at least one positive reaction from someone who knows and loves it or is intrigued by the rich amber-like aroma.

I wear Opium on an almost daily basis. It not only stimulates my senses but contibutes to a personal sense of well-being. Our sense of smell is tied to the long-term memory area of the brain in ways that process emotions, cognition and memory-storage and retrival. Using Opium is part of my personal identity and reinforces positive feelings of self-esteem.

At least twice a year, I try to purchase the large container (3.3 oz) spray, and look for combination values, such as adding the smaller size of parfum to use for special occasions. I find the high quality and enduring scent of Opium some of the reasons I continue to be drawn to this parfum.

I am 60 yrs old, and though not blessed with striking beauty, I find joy and pleasure in using this exotic perfume. I would recommend its rich qaulity and character to any woman seeking a signature sensual aroma.

Opium has a new distinctive and exquisitely designed shape for its bottle in the 3.3 oz size. It is an attractive addition to my dresser accroutrements.

Seemed too good to be true - and was. Normally use opium for special occasions so know how it should smell. Tried the topped up tester offer and wish I hadn't. Weaker than toilet water with hardly any lasting fragrance. First time customer with FragranceX. Will shop elsewhere in future.

      Opium has always been one of my favorite perfumes, unfortunately it can be a little expensive and I don't always have it in my possession to wear. Thankfully FragranceX has made it possible again.

      When I got this fragrance I was suffering from a cold so I waited until it was gone to use it, but by then it was to late to return it. It smelled like grandma's old perfume sitting on her dresser.
