I find myself sniffing this oh so often whenever I wear it. I wore this on my wedding day, with jasmine in my hair and it was just such a perfect blend of sweet, sophisticated and sexy. It's an incense-y room of silk-covered floor cushions, with antique wall tapestries, and it is always l'heure bleu - that magic electric blue sky of early evening or almost dawn.
Fans of real vintage Opium should track down a vintage bottle of Dana 20 Carats Cologne, which can still be found on ebay- sometimes for decent low prices. I have vintage Opium EDT, plus the recent EDT and a special edition red bottle EDP. I recently talked my BF into getting me a vintage EDT mini (less than ) from ebay, and it arrived a few hours before my day suddenly got really bad.
Top notes are coriander, plum, citruses, mandarin orange, pepper, jasmine, cloves, west indian bay and bergamot; middle notes are carnation, sandalwood, patchouli, cinnamon, orris root, peach, lily-of-the-valley and rose; base notes are labdanum, tolu balsam, sandalwood, opoponax, musk, coconut, vanilla, benzoin, vetiver, incense, cedar, myrrh, castoreum and amber.
I have a bottle from the early 90s, and I am sure it hardly compares to the original,it is a beauty nonetheless.
Madame Lombard was nonplussed - she liked the image, the French on it, and the designer well enough, but the name was met with strong disapproval.
The thrust is to bring awareness, openness, accountability and recovery to the church, society and individuals who have been affected by pornography.
Madame Lombard, you were the best French teacher Ever, and Opium is like no other scent - Ever.
My 80-something grandmother has been regularly wearing Opium since it first came out.
It starts off with orange, jasmine and yla ng ylang on me. Slowly the notes of cinnamon and coriander come to play.
Oh the coriander note is such a surprise, smelling dusty and grassy all at once.
