Opium pour Homme Eau de Parfum fragrance notes

Reviews of Opium pour Homme Eau de Parfum

Although men can (of course) also wear the « female » version of this, this is a great fragrance for men which differs a lot from the main fragrances on the market. I’d add incense (and also amber) to the notes. It’s dry and spicy.

A spicy vanilla with an initial bite. I could swear I get some Amber in this gem (may be the balsam note). You will really enjoy this on a nice cool day.7.5/10

Vanillary par excellence with no annoying candyfloss in sight. Supporting notes make it exceptional... rest assured, the noticeable anise is subtle or so well mixed that it does not take the whole thing into licorice 'lolita territory'.

A brilliant composition of an oriental spicy like it should be!
It lasts all day, smells masculine and seductive. The notes of especially black currant, vanilla and star anise are blended to perfection. 2-3 Sprays and you are set for an entire day! The in blue plastic covered glass bottle is the one to get! Thumbs way up! Rating: 9/10

A potent, smooth and intoxicating concoction of spices (dominated by anise), fleshed out by blackcurrant and softened by vanilla. As deep and dark as the eyes of the man who should wear it.*

Not for everyday use. 3 sprays are ample for a day's wear.

{Review of a bottle bought in 2010}.

*Please don't ruin this romantic association by wearing it if you are a hopeless minger.

Smooth, sensual, sweet, exotic, and totally addictive!

What a beautiful gem of a fragrance for men! Stunning! This was one of the first Eau de Parfum marketed fragrances for men back in 1995, and in no way does it smell dated now! It's sensual, sweet and exotic. This perfume has no sharp edges, completely smooth and sensual throughout.

The fragrance itself opens up with zingy aromatic star anise and rich blackcurrant. It's completely beautiful. Followed by galanga and sichuan pepper, and drying down to beautiful tolu balsam and a deep, creamy, rich bourbon vanilla. Utterly intoxicating.

Smooth and sensual, this is one of the best designer perfumes ever made for a man. You have everything you could want in a niche (e.g. a Serge Lutens oriental) from a well-known designer house. This is the YSL of the past, the one we all miss! You can still get this one as (thank God) it's still in production! I hope it stays that way. Easily one of the best and most luxurious for men out there.
