    Default Opium Pour Whom ?

    Okay, I'll guess this is for women. A female relative gave me this, after she found it while cleaning out a closet. It's the "publicity version" of Opium (never heard of that phrase before), by Carter & Van Peel (#27260, to be exact!). It starts off with very strong clove, like you get early on in Jacomo de Jacomo, then it softens up into a more feminine-smelling scent (spicy and ambery, with a bit of a sweet, powdery feel). Does this sound like a good copy of the women's version, or does it sound closer to the men's?

    The woman's version has very distinct feminine florals in the top and heart. the male version starts with anise and black currant, then becomes gingery and peppery." Aromatic Ginger" I would say in my humble opinion borrowing Turin terminology.

    Ah, okay, thanks. I now have a feeling that either this bottle is missing floral top notes due to age or is just not a very good "clone" of the women's Opium.
