I WAS A VICTORIA'S SECRET WOMEN FOR OVER 30 YEARS AND THEN MY FRAGRANCE WAS DISCONTINUED I WAS LOOKING FOR MY SIGNATURE VANILLA SCENT AND HAPPEN UPON BLACK OPIUM THAT WAY BUT ONCE I ORDERED IT AND GOT SUCH RAVE REVIEWS FROM MALE AND FEMALES I FORGOT ABOUT YOUNG VANILLA SCENTS AND NOW AM A FULL GROWN WOMEN .
love this perfume! first smelled and saw it in a magazine that i had to buy it thanks!!
Black Opium is one of the most seductive scents I've ever smelled. It lasts all day, it's powerful and memorable. Somehow, the notes in the scent fuse perfectly to create a perfect and sweet experience that is worth every penny.
Black Opium to my nose is not terrible by any means, it's actually "nice". I'd give it 2.5 stars, rounding up to 3. Nice as in pleasant, inoffensive, but also rather forgettable. The fact that it is nice smelling is definitely not enough for me to purchase any scent. That said, I can imagine that Black Opium is a crowd pleaser and that's completely fine. The only gripe I have with this new fragrance is the "legacy" of its name. Opium - these are big shoes to fill for a worthy successor! It certainly got my attention and I imagine many people familiar with the Original were curious to smell this new creation. I have sampled the original Opium back in the days and while I found it too heavy to wear it myself I recognized Opium as a masterpiece of its time. Black Opium in my view does not possess much if any uniqueness. Sadly, the famous name was (mis-)used for marketing purposes only.
