Excerpt: Belle D'Opium was a big disappointment to me yesterday when it finally arrived. Opium has always been my favorite fragrance so I was delighted to try a "new version". From all I had read from other critiques I was dying to try it. I tried it 3 times in 24 hrs. and never had a lingering fragrance of anything much less of Oriental/Spicy like Opium. Oh well, I tried.
Summary: Don't be fooled into thinking this new bottle of Opium is the same as the old bottle of Opium because it is not. The ingredients in the new bottle is even different than the old Opium. It doesn't even smell like the same perfume, because it isn't. The company should have given it a new name like Opium II, because when I bought it I thought it was the same as the old Opium only in a new bottle. I had no idea that the ingredients were different.
Summary: This item was so bad--cannot compare with real Opium by Yves Saint Laurent cologne--why do you deal with companies which hose down your customers? I shall stick with Kindle books and hope that I get what I pay for, although even that is questionable.
Summary: The image you see is not what you get. "FRAUD" I ordered what I saw in the image and what I received is the new junk that YSL is now calling Opium. This company "Sal's" knows the difference because they also offer the "new" Opium from YSL shown in the bottle that I was sent. There is a vast difference in the scent. I have used the original Opium since 1978 and know the difference. I shopped on line because you can no longer buy the original in the stores.
The product received is not the same as pictured!!

Summary: I received the product in a different package as shown in your photo or as previously ordered and received. It is substandart and a poor imitation of the product I have previously received thru Amazon. I am very aengry to have to pay so much money for such a poor substitute in a similar packaging as the original product I had ordered. Someone seems to have imitaded the "Opium" I am familiar with for over 30 years!!.
Excerpt: Belle d´Opium je určitě nositelnější verze Opia (alespoň pro mě), ale je nutné dodat, že z původní verze toho opravdu moc nezbylo a vůně celkově je taková nijaká. Cítím v ní hlavně jasmín, pačuli a pepř? Nemá velkou výdrž a cítím z ní jakoby pánské tóny.
Conclusion: Gente, esse perfume é meio estranho. Eu não sei explicar o que esse perfume tem, mas o cheiro não me agrada... me traz uma sensação muito estranha! É tudo uma questão de gosto, claro. Os perfumes que uso e amo são o Euphoria, o Chic, o Armani Code, Lady Million e Black XS, ou seja, perfumes mais femininos, mais doces, mais sensuais... então esse cheiro não me agradou.
