About the Product

Yves Saint Laurent Opium cologne joined the company's storied fragrance lineup in 1995. Jacques Cavallier, a successful French perfumer, is the nose behind the men's fragrance.

Fragrance Family:

Amber spicy

Scent Type:

Spicy, intense

Notes:

Opium cologne enters with sharp star anise paired with juicy black currant, creating a fresh entrance. As the fragrance develops, the rich, tropical galangal reveals itself to add warmth. The spicy Szechwan pepper base notes, creamy vanilla, cedar and Tolu balsam round out the cologne for a deep, balanced finish.

Suggested Use

For long-lasting fragrance that you can carry throughout the day and to minimize the need for reapplying, focus on your pulse points behind your ears, at the base of your neck and on your wrists as well as warmer areas of the body, such as behind the knees and inside the elbow. These are the best places to apply your fragrance since the scent intensifies by the warmth of your body.

FAQ

What does Opium cologne by Yves Saint Laurent smell like?

YSL Opium cologne is the fragrance of confidence. Clean and bright at the opening, it evolves into a rich, warm blend of woody and sweet notes laced with spice. Opium cologne for men is unapologetically bold, but at its foundation, it is sensual and inviting.

What season is it best for?

This warm amber fragrance has spicy accords that fit perfectly during fall and winter. Try this Yves Saint Laurent cologne whenever you want to draw attention to yourself and shine bright.

The intensity of YSL Opium cologne lends itself to date night or a late gathering with friends. Wear it sparingly during the day, but unleash its heady power when the sun goes down.

What a luxurious scent !

After I ordered, I just imagined something strange. I already have OPIUM EDP. for woman and I love the scent. This product is so much different from woman's version, but has common sense at the same time. Passion is moderated and it shows a sharp and deep edge. I think this product is good for

Opium for Men

I have been using Opium for Men since 1996. But this time I received from FragranceX.com the same bottle and package but a different smell. I did read a review before and one person received the same thing. I am disappointed with you guys.

This is a great value for an evening fragrance. Masculine Oriental fragrances are few and far between, but this one hits the mark. This is a worthy blind buy.

Opium Pour Homme

I haven't tried this yet but used original Opium from the 70's that is masculine in today's standards. This is a retro cologne from the 90's, the time when l wore the tutti frutti floral aquatics when fragrances started to evolve into lighter and sweeter creations. I am sure this is a very good one. I will wear this during Christmas season. I hope l won't be disappointed.

Yes, I would recommend to a friend.

Somewhat feminine at first Spritz but still manly

After a few uses, I came to realize it's more of an evening/night scent. It leaves a bit of a trail and silage when you leave a room but for me it leans toward a more personal scent.

Yes, I would recommend to a friend.

One word to discribe Opium, magical

I use opium edt on special occasions, it's an all around performer. It took me years to get my hands on another bottle after my first ever bottle ran out in 1997. Finally I found one on clearance sale at my local TJ Max's. One think I would like to say though is that the original is much much stronger and long lasting than the reformulated version.

Bottom Line

Yes, I would recommend to a friend.

One of my favorites

I used this fragrance when it first came out years ago. Walking past a kiosk in the mall about two years ago I was thrilled to find it again and bought it on the spot. Now that bottle is almost gone and the kiosk no longer carries Opium Pour Homme. So the minute I found it on fragrancex I bought it immediately. It is a classy fragrance that no one else wears and I love it.

Bottom Line

Yes, I would recommend to a friend.
