Most Helpful Positive Review I LOVE this scent it's exquisite!
My friend came to visit during Thanksgiving from England. When I hugged her at the airport the aroma was so unique I had to know what she was wearing. She was wearing Black Opium. I went to every department store looking for this product, no one was selling it in the US at that time! It is sensuous, sophisticated, and mysterious, a truly unique fragrance. It makes one think of warm sultry nights on silk sheets, this fragrance is erotic! I am so pleased to see they are finally selling it in the US. I am not a fan of Opium, however, I LOVE LOVE Black Opium! I usually wear DG The One or Addict by Dior. I ended up buying Flower Bomb which I like , however, if I had my choice at Christmas I would have bought a bottle of Black Opium!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for me
I was hoping to like this fragrance since I do like Opium and LOVE Belle D'Opium, but this version is not for me. The floral component is overwhelming and gave me a headache. I'm sure it will smell lovely on someone else, but I will stick with Belle D'Opium.

I have bought 2 other fragrances based on reviews and didn't like them. Thank goodness this is a winner. Its dreamy with the coffee and vanilla. I dont really notice the floral scent. It lasts a long time. I still smell it the next morning.
VMM from USA
Smells great but the performance could be enhanced. Doesn't really last well.
It becomes your signature scent
Lew from MA
I wear this everyday and it has become my signature scent I seriously have people buy it and call it my perfume... flattered is an understatement but I love this perfume! It smells so yummy and warm like vanilla and coffee, the perfect combo.
Dee from Illinois
Lov it !
I absolutely love this perfume, it's my go-to
Tana from Mt. Juliet, tn
I usually use this 4 when I'm going out or going to see people it's not a body spray so I try not to use it every single day even though I really want to, if it came in like a body mist that was affordable I would definitely jump on that
LOVE this scent.
Eli B from Michigan
I've worn the same perfume for like 5 years. I read a ton of reviews before I purchased Black Opium and it did NOT disappoint. Obsessed.
We love her, we needed her

Honestly you well smell so good and its definitely a mans favorite
VMM from Louisiana
Smells great but I feel like the fragrance doesn't last very long.
I am in love!
Kaybo91 from Tampa, FL
I love the scent of this perfume! when I first spray it I get hit with a strong floral scent that settles into a warm vanilla with a hint of coffee. this scent is so beautiful I cannot get enough of it buttttt....there is a reason why I gave this review 4 stars, the longevity of this perfume is not great. 3-4 hours max and then I have to reapply and for the price I would expect it to last as long as my Chanel Coco mademoiselle which btw is almost the same price and lasts 8 to 10 hours. but this scent is so unique that I believe I will buy again it's that beautiful! pros: beautiful scent, unique, any season of the year. cons: longevity is not good.
Bunny from Cincinnati Ohio
I was really excited to get this because everyone talks about how much they love it. I got it and it smells very similar to the old perfume Scandalous by Victoria's Secret and Alien had a baby, which is good! I wore it for probably 30 minutes and it was GONE I couldn't even smell it on my wrists anymore. I can't decide if I want to return it or not because it is nice smelling but definitely dissatisfied with the longevity of it. I did get a compliment from someone before it wore off though. If you have your eye on another perfume go with that one or else you'll be carrying this with you in your purse all night.
Just didn't work with my chemistry
Nicole from Hillsboro, Oh
I love fragrances and have a decent collection. I've noticed in the last year or so I've started purchasing more gourmands. I had smelled this in store and it's a scent i have smelled on other people and thought it was wonderful. I ordered it with some rewards and was so disappointed with the way it interacted with my body chemistry. It's headache inducing overpowering. Like, this stuff lasted on me forever and the most noticeable note to me was a very cheap (sorry) floral scent. That's all I could smell on myself for hours and hours no matter what I did.
I even (stupidly) tried it a couple more times thinking I'd get used to it or maybe I had just been having an off day when first I wore it. Nope.
So I gave it to my mom. She loved it. It smells awesome on her and the coffee notes come through beautifully.
CourtneyG9110 from Davisville, WV
Bought this as a "blind buy" from seeing a ton of amazing YouTube reviews from influencers who love a lot of the same scents as me! Definitely not disappointed! This smells SO good and is sweet and girly but with a more mature scent. Definitely one that deserves a spot in your perfume collection! Also the bottle is gorgeous!
So cloying and disgusting
mountainmama from Va
Don't understand these reviews- all I smell is tobacco, stale flowers, and old-just a really older mature woman who pours on the perfume and the stench never dissipates- like a cloud. This does last ultra long and unfortunately, and wont fade away.
Super Short Lived Scent
Nikki P from Mountain Top, PA
I truly cannot believe how quickly the scent of this dissipated! I have purchased 'cheap' perfumes that lasted longer and certainly expected more from YSL. The scent at application is fantastic but it then disappears. I have tried multiple times thinking it was a fluke but no-same issue every time.
Def is my daughters fav !!

This is my oldest daughter signature fragrance and she absolutely love it !'

I'm in love with this fragrance, it's sweet and sensual with a bit of spice. I would absolutely recommend this
Not what I was hoping for
heynikki from Rochester
Pretty disappointed in this perfume. I was SO excited to get it in the mail today, but right away I smelled it and wasn't very impressed. I sprayed a generous amount on myself anyway, hoping it would get better once it settled/as the day went on, but the smell didn't really change. It didn't last long either... About half an hour after spraying I couldn't smell it anymore, even right up to my nose. I was hoping for one of those perfumes everyone compliments you on like the other reviews mentioned, but this just isn't it. I prefer sweeter scents over floral ones and was really hoping to smell the vanilla and coffee in this, but all I smell is one floral note that isn't anything like the scent description. It pretty much smells like every other overpriced perfume I've bought, unfortunately. I ordered this blind after the glowing reviews and description and am kinda wishing I hadn't wasted my gift card on this now. This may work for other people, so if you have your heart set on it, make sure you get the smaller size or a sample so you're not wasting money on a scent you don't love.
Rylee from Montana
I've honestly ever had a nice perfume, I was always cheap and used BBW sprays or VS stuff...I am forever changed! This perfume is amazing and lasts so long without being over powering (I spritz back of my neck and wrist and rub). I will definitely be investing in nice perfumes after receiving this as a gift for Christmas! It's sweet yet sexy...definitely reccomend!
I am so disappointed
Gaby from Orange County
I recently wrote a review raving about this perfume, but just about a week or 2 later and about 3 uses, it now smells absolutley terrible. It smells expired and I am really disappointed.
It smells like grandma.
Jen from California
I smelt this scent a couple of years ago through a sample and I loved it. I don't know if I got a bad batch or not but it doesn't smell the same at all... and it does not last. I have to spray is 6 times just for it to stay on for an hour. It's strong and the alcohol smell overpowers everything.
The smell is intoxicating
Ronni lee from Ohio
I am in LOVE with this perfume!!!!!! It is absolutely intoxicating and my favorite scent I've ever worn.
Best Gift Ever
Naelani from Arizona
My boyfriend got me this as a present for Christmas and it is AMAZING, vanilla scent but not overpowering it is perfect for me and just wearing it makes me want to have a good day. I recommend this to every woman.

Spray on daily
Gives me a headache.

I have used the regular opium perfumes for years and love them. But this black opium is not for me.
