    Opium pour Homme by Yves Saint Laurent

    One of the most underrated fragrances .
    This is a great fragrance, oriental , sweet , manly ... I expected it would be another disgusting old school, but how glad I am to discover how wonderful this fragrance is .
    At the first notes I clearly smell blackcurrant instead of anise .When it dries down you get a spicy scent , with pepper and vanilla .
    Very formal scent , not for old people nor for young .
    The EDP is much worse to my nose, it smells like olives, I prefer the EDT.
    The price is very good, almost a bargain .
    The bad part is that longevity is regular(about 2-3 hours) and projection is poor .
    Anyway , a good fragrance.
