Dark, Rich and Resinous
I definitely get the "cinnabar" vibe here. It's sweet, very balmy. Resinous. Incredibly intriguing to smell and wear. A lovely fragrance. Perfect on anyone "grown-up". Plus it's Yves Saint-Laurent, and a well worthy variation on the "Opium" name. Definitely recommended. Classy, mature and elegant.

Soft, Creamy and Gorgeous
For many years, I considered Opium (1977) as one of mom's scents: an oriental powerhouse that she overused and that I hated. But the older I've gotten, the more fragrances have descended into blend sameness, and the more Opium has seemed bold, original and gorgeous by comparison to the dreary rabble. Recently, I found a bottle of this concentration, Secret de Parfum, and love it is. The astringency of the mandarin and spices in the original softens here; the floracy amps up. The creaminess is off the charts. Highly recommended, if you can find it.
