Summary: I thought this product was a "dab on" perfume (longer lasting aroma), not a toilette spray. I couln't be sure by the product description and the product is displayed in a box, not the actual perfume container. Very disappointed. Will have to return it for refund after Christmas.
Advertised picture is not what I got. V disappointed.

Summary: I ordered it - after hunting far too long online - for the sleek flat shape shown in the picture above. Instead, II received a short squat bottle. Nearly sent it back but couldn't be bothered with the online return hassle.
Summary: As a lover of ORIGINAL Opium pre 2009, Belle scent is different. Don't know why Yves St Laurent gave it a name associated with Opium. Belle is exceptionally sweet, fruity, similar to a 'knockoff' sold on corner almost like Paris scent.
Summary: Belle D'Opium Eau de Parfum purchased. Very weak fragrance for a parfum..I think Yves St Laurent can do better, I cannot entirely fault the vendor as they are simply the middleman. Glad I only purchased a sample. How disappointing!
Summary: A couple of years ago, good old OPIUM was reformulated (which I perceived as a tragedy in itself then, while meanwhile I have managed to come to terms with the reformulation), but the 2010's Opium-flanker, Belle d'Opium, struck me as a very uninventive attempt at producing yet another "floriental"...
Summary: I love YSL perfumes but this one has got not a lot going for it, it hardly smells I am really disapointed with it and would not buy it again. I thought it would hang around me like Poison does, but no in fact you cannot smell it when spraying it on.
A wishy-washy mish-mash of white florals to avoid at all costs

Excerpt: Launched: 2010 Group: Oriental Floral INTRODUCTION Belle d'Opium was another sample I picked up in a department store on my recent visit to London. Seeing Belle d'Opium together on display with the 2009 reformulated Opium version already set alarm bells ringing, but hey, I slap on anything I can get...
