    Default Opium fleur de Shaghai vs Opium fleur imperiale

    Bought a bottle of Opium fleur imperiale today...But can't find it listed here on basenotes,and it looks the same as Fleur de Shanghai to me....Is this the same scent,more or less or are they two different scents?

    Opium FdS came out in 2005, and Opium FI in -06. They are not the same, you can read about them at OsMoz.

    Hi ineespenes, according to the osMoz site, each year to celebrate the arrival of spring YSL would release a special edition of Opium. In 2006, they launched Opium fleur imperiale. Based on OsMoz, here is the composition:
    Top notes : Tangerine, Neroli, Bergamot
    Middle notes : Apricot Blossom, Fresh Jasmine, Carnation
    Base notes : Vanilla, Osmanthus, Myrrh, Patchouli, Amber

    Opium Fleur de Shanghai was released in 2005, and here is the composition:
    Top note : Mandarin Orange, Chinotto Sour Orange, Bergamot
    Middle note : Chinese Magnolia, Star Jasmine, Carnation, Myrrh
    Base note : Vanilla, Patchouli, Amber

    I have both of them and I found Opium fleur imperiale a little bit spicier and deeper than Shanghai.

    Talking Re: Opium fleur de Shaghai vs Opium fleur imperiale

    Hi I have loved Opium since it came out. I love the summer le ones and finished Shanghai and almost done with Imperial. For some reason, tho they are both quite alike I may order another bottle of Imperial. I saw it on a web site quite discounted. I think Scentiments.com,Not sure. I also got the LE gorgeous black bottle of Opium from the Saks F&F deal. The summer ones are a tad lighter and easier to take but Opium is a fabulous scent and love the summer ones,
