Don't get hooked on opium! After reading the reviews I ordered a bottle of Opium PH and was very glad that I did. This stuff smells great. In viewing the YSL website, however, I noticed that this was not available for order. Subsequently I contacted YSL and was told that unfortunately, due to poor sales, it had been discontinued. Not wanting to become addicted to something for which the remaining available stock would soon be depleted, I searched for a viable alternative. I am happy to say that- at least for me- I have been successful. Following an exhaustive (Well, it wasn't really that strenuous.) search I was led to Eau Des Baux by L'Occitane. The vanilla drydown is unbelievably pleasant and despite differing reviews as regards longevity, for me the soft, sweet smell lasts all day and through the night. I highly recommend this EDT, guys. If you like Opium, give this a try. I don't think you'll be sorry.
