    Opium pour Homme Eau de Parfum by Yves Saint Laurent

    What a wonderful winter fragrance. Opium PH EDP is a creamy, vanilla and anise powerhouse. It is warm, exotic, and mysterious: the perfect accompaniment for a cold winter night with your special someone.

    The fragrance is rich and absolutely beautiful. I consider it to be THE reference example for a "men's spicy oriental." The longevity and projection are among the best I have ever experienced, easily on par with the similarly exceptional and massive Chanel Egoiste Cologne Concentree. I get an easy 12-15 hours on my skin and days on my clothing.

    Opium PH EDP is potent. It is a little sweet, so be careful not to over-apply it as it can easily become cloying and headache inducing if you overdo it. Two sprays are more than sufficient. Three if you will be outside. If you spray judiciously, you will be enveloped by a warm, spicy, intoxicating cocoon of spiced vanilla that will last the entire day.

    This fragrance is a true masterpiece and a must for anyone looking for an exceptional men's spicy oriental.
