This is one of my favorite spicy orientals, along with Fleur de Shanghai. It has everything I love about the original Opium, but without that pesky carnation note. It's neither light nor heavy, just right for summer and fall evenings. Dries down beautifully, surrounding you with a soft veil of floral spice. Just lovely!
Opium fleur imperiale is one of the rare occasions when I've basically bought the scent there and then.This was last autumn,so I was really worried that the scent would be sold out.I absoulutely fell in love when i tried it the first time:)It was quite strong.The first thing that came through was vanilla and patchouli.This developed into something fairly close to sandalwood.If I didn't know it was not among the notes listed I would have thought it was sandalwood in it.It's not among the most complex scents I've tried,but it always makes me feel pretty.So thumps up from me.
