    Amazing strong scent for a cold/dry day. Works well sprayed under layers and lasts all day long. I find myself wearing this when, I know damn well, I'm going to be outside a lot on a cold ass day.

    I definitely have to be in the mood for this powerhouse.
    Keeps good...I still have a bottle of the original form and it smells fantastic.
    Very unique scent.

    Sharp oriental

    YSL's Opium and Boucheron Jaipur are my 2 beloved designer oriental treasures of all time.

    Where Jaipur is perfect for summer this is a autumn / winter oriental and will be killing in the sun
    Its a compliment getter for sure i imagine an indian prince getting a full body massage from his feminine staff with etherical oils of all spices of India.
    It puts a warm sulty glow around you wearing it. great combination of spice 'n fruits and herbs.
    And guess what! i bought a bottle (old reformulation) for cheap :-)

    TIP:Dont use it in hot,warm weather its so harsh then it breaks apart and gets cloying.

    Pros: Big oriental
    Cons: Harsh"

    Somewhat disappointing

    I tried really hard to like this fragrance but in all honestly I can't say that I do.

    I know that patchouli is not listed among the basenotes but patchouli or something like it is there in massive quantities on the bottom. There's a bitter earthy basenote that overpowers everything else and the longer you wear this the worse it gets.

    Opium Pour Homme is not terrible but I find it hard to imagine an occasion where it would be a good choice. It's too powerful for the office, too trashy for formal wear, too rich and sweet for everything else.

    Pros: Rich, distinctive
    Cons: Overpowering, cloying drydown"

    Spiciness and Silage - an oriental of substance

    The top note sports a good bit of anise that combines with pepper to a strong opening blast, that js sustained throughout the whole time in variable strength. A gingery notes and wood impressions, mainly cedar, appears at times in the drydown. In the base notes a vanilla is added, but on my skin the fragrance is never too sweet or cloying, unless worn in warm weather. A bit synthetic but to a bearable extent. Excellent silage and projection, with over six hours of longevity. A heavy 1990s product, foreshadowing GPH I without the latter's complexity, elegance or originality.

    Sweet narcotic! Magnificent fragrance, my second favorite of the house after M7. I hope to Yves Saint Laurent can not think reformulate or in the worst cases, discontinue it. The only thing that I find against Opium Pour Homme is anis, I not get along great with that note. But the general body of the composition is great, sublime. I would try the EDP, spoken of much better. Great oriental, for some the best and worth even get a taste.

    It's a bit outdated, but in the realm of powerhouse orientals, this is probably the king. Very potent (especially the EDP version, that is just ridiculously loud).
