    Default OPIUM pour Homme , eau de PARFUM version: still in production, but....

    How many times we heard: Oh, the beautiful Opium pour Homme, Eau de Parfum version (not the EdT), what a great perfume! now sadly discontinued...
    WRONG.
    Opium pour Homme EdP is still in production as you can see in this picture shot inside a Yves Saint Laurent boutique. It's a 62Kxxx batch, so = year 2013. The EdP version is still on production but only in limited quantities. Strangely, it is availble only in the tiny 50ml (1.7 oz. ) bottle.

    What about smell? Well, I was in a hurry and didn't test it thoroughly, but it seems not with the same strenght and potency as in the older vintage versions. Sorry to say this, guys, the 2013 EdP is not a bad perfume, but it seems much lighter than the original.

    This is a great scent. Glad it's still available in the stronger concentration even if it has changed seemingly.

    I bought some for retail a year ago from across the Atlantic.

    It's definitely still in production.

    This is really nice to read ! I really find this to be such a nice and rich fragrance. One for special times, but perhaps any time one is in the mood for it. It also allowed me to appreciate the edt a lot better as well ( I did not care for it before)/. Thanks for sharing everyone
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Aramis New West, Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    Please PM me !

    Will definitely have to get this - just in case, preferably vintage.

    For those who have yet to try the edp version, read the reviews, give it a wear, and have hope in what has been a generally miserable market place for men's fragrances.

    I see it's currently commanding a high price on Ebay.
