    I've seen some Opium at the local TJ Maxx for under $20... I wasn't a big fan of it though. Smelled a little too old for me

    Just because it's sold by vendors on Amazon doesn't make it legit. To be sure you're getting legit products you must buy from Amazon and not its vendors. It's not like Amazon checks the companies whether they're legit or not. It's like eBay. Anyone can sell anything. I only hope you get the real thing if you did in fact place the order. I seriously wouldn't risk it and would try to get my money back. That company you want to buy from only has 30 feedback. Why not go for a company that's more reputable and not some complete unknown company?

    Phew, that was close. That's a really cheap price for a EDP and that alone can be a warning sign. It's a good thing you didn't buy it since chances are it would have been fake. I don't know if you'll ever find Opium EDP from a reputable source for that cheap. Amazon deosn't sell the EDP version of Opium but it does have some great prices for other fragrances. Be sure the seller is Amazon. They even offer free standard shipping. Also, you can sign up for a 1-month Amazon Prime trial which lets you get free 2-day shipping. Just go to a search engine and type in "Amazon Prime."

    I went against everyone's advice and ordered it from Amazon. The reseller is perfumetogo, which has an ebay store. Perhaps someone here could comment on reliability. Their feedback site on ebay is here:

    I've only seen the EDT version of it and not EDP at T.J. Maxx. There's a difference.

    Keep us updated on this purchase. I personally have a hard time trusting any discount fragrance sites other than Amazon themselves which have some nice prices.

    i would get it from here

    http://www.beautyencounter.com/33654...html?synertech

    $55 but this is where i bought it and can be sure it is the real thing more money but this is worth every penny and $55 not bad for an EDP

    I jumped on this also - low risk blind buy ($25).

    Thanks to all and Ronin...Agree, That's a really cheap price for a EDP and that alone can be a warning sign!.

    I also found it in Enchante Perfumes & Cosmetics in Canada, but the price is to hight ( $72.00 Canadian Dollars Shipping Charges To the United States for 1-2 items...$ 9.95)....And in Beautiful Perfumes (US$59.99):

    http://eperfumes.ca/product.php?prod...5&cat=0&page=1

    http://www.beautifulperfumes.com/3365440025530.html

    As Denec, I really thing that is better to get it from www.beautyencounter.com (US$59.90),
    just to be sure it is the real thing!

    That was my thought, too. Besides, I've never bought a fake fragrance before, so this might be my chance to see one up close. Green Frich Tweed, anyone?

    BTW, this item is a refill spray, which may account for the low price. No fancy Opium bottle.

    I bought mine a few years ago for $25.00 and it's the real deeleo .

    There's no incentive out there to make fake Opium PH EdP because very few people know about it.
    Are you not entertained??? Is this not why you are here??

    www.beautyencounter.com is a real deal website! they used to be called www.perfumebay.com until they changed it. their werehouse/office is only a 10 minute drive away from my home so I always end up there when I need to get something. actually, i was there a couple of days ago and came home with the last bottle of Knize Ten that wasn't even posted on their site as well as MPG Santal Noble. I wanted the tester of Santal Noble b/c it was half off the regular price but the guy working said that they forgot to change the availability of the product online so he took $10 the original bottle.

    BTW: Im also thinking about getting Opium pH EdP from them this coming week, lets just hope they have enough left for all of us.

    I just received Opium Pour Homme EdP that I ordered from Amazon.com (reseller: perfumestogo), and I LOVE it. Much, much more to my liking than the EdT. And yes, despite the many cautions from folks who posted to this thread, this Opium is the real deal, and a great deal too at ~$30 for a 50 mL refill bottle.

    The EdP is much more refined than the EdT, no doubt about it. With the EdT, I was simply overwhelmed by spice, but the EdP is softened by a gorgeous mandarin topnote and rich vanilla/patchouli base. I've only had it on my skin for an hour or so and it just keeps getting better. I'm not a big fan of vanilla, but Opium has changed my opinion.

    On a sour note, I also ordered what I thought was the EdT version of Pierre Cardin (green box). Alas, it was merely the cologne, so back it goes. Score for amazon.com resellers: 1 for 2.

    I just love Opium edp....sometimes I feel its just too good to be true to be able to get this outstanding fragrance for as little as $25....It surely is a gem and surely ranks right up there...This is easily a $100 scent for me....I wouldn't say the same thing for the edt however.....I am just too stuck up with the edp at the moment....but its only for the colder weather....however I do look forward to spray a little on the back of my palm on slightly colder days even during summers.....

    As you can see, the top is designed as a refill bottle, but the spray works normally.

    No cap. It's a refill bottle, so you'd have to buy the original bottle to get a cap. Otherwise, it's the same juice.

    There is a vast abundance of threads on Opium PH Edt. I would suggest you review some of them to help decide if it's for you. But for the price, it's an incredible bargain. If you like rich spices, it's a very low risk, IMO.
