    The original Opium, but not looking, picked up the 36ml EdT...speaking of weird sizes, it also came in a 69ml and a 105ml. And a 0.8oz in a slightly different presentation.

    I have Opium PH already, the EdP in the blue plastic sheath/cover thingy. It's my benchmark for a masculine oriental, although for whatever reason I rarely wear it. Smells great and potent as all get out. I also have a vtg. mini of Opium PH EdT and they smell pretty close to me. The EdP is a little heavier and thicker, but once they dry down I find them pretty close smell-wise. At least close enough that if you find one or the other for a great price, I'd not agonize about getting the other. You'll be smelling Opium PH either way.

    Two equally priced specimens, I'd probably go EdP.

    I just pulled the trigger on a reasonable Opium EDT from probably 1990-ish. It seems like something I’ll really enjoy. Maybe I’ll grab some PH at some point.
    FYI: I spray all fragrances on clothing, never on skin.

    Expanded my deep vintage volume for Antaeus, unfortunately it's not enough.

    I have a little one-ouncer of Ô de Lancôme and it's really good. Pathetic lifespan, though.
