Fou d’Opium

A rich, provocative, and super sexy animalic-spicy oriental perfume.  Based on the parfum formulation of the original Opium perfume from the 1970’s, this fragrance is amazing on both men and women.


About This Product

Have you ever noticed that there are some fragrances that make people go completely bonkers for them??  They can’t get enough and no other perfume will ever do to replace it?

The original YSL Opium perfume is one of these fragrances.  After I created “Euphorisme d’Opium” for the YSL Retrospective at Denver Art Museum, I was contacted from far and wide to create an original fragrance that represents the sensuality and depth of “Opium Parfum” (Euphorisme is based more on the spicier, original eau de toilette formulation).

It’s almost a kind of insanity, this love and reverence for one perfume…hence Fou d’Opium.

Let’s go crazy.

    I would give this another 5 stars if I could. YSL Opium (vintage formulation) was one of the major perfumes of my life and while it’s 30 years out of fashion I still don’t love any other fragrance with quite as much passion. The edt was wonderful but oh the parfum! And so I have hoarded enough bottles of each concentration to ensure that I can bathe in it and not run out before shuffling off this mortal coil. When I heard that Dawn had made an homage to the parfum I had to have it. Best blind buy ever. It is not only ‘as good’ as Opium Parfum but possibly better; the quality of the ingredients is remarkable. Deep, rich, alive, sexy, balsamic goodness that I don’t really have the writing skills to convey. If you love vintage Opium Parfum, this will make you swoon. I don’t know how anyone could not love it.
    This was a much more expensive purchase than I ordinarily make – and blind – and given that I do have a good bit of Opium parfum in my closet I had to think hard about it. Now that I’ve worn this I don’t regret one penny of the price, and I would be trying to get it if I didn’t have it. It’s not redundant to own this as well as Opium Parfum. A few dabs of each? Obscenely good. Magnificent.

    I’ve never smelled vintage Opium, and I don’t usually wear animalic fragrances, but once I got used to it, Fou d’Opium became one of my very favorite DSH fragrances. It manages to be both sexy and cozy. Very warm, deeply feminine. I enjoy layering it with Euphorisme during the day, but in the evenings I indulge in Fou all by itself. It makes me feel pampered and luscious and irresistible.

    This is one of the vintage formulas I just love!!! I love that Dawn breathes new life into these formulas so that we can enjoy these without feeling like we are in a rut and couldn’t be bothered to try something new. While I didn’t buy the YSL Opium of old, i am definitely loving this!!! i have always received compliments from random strangers every time I wear this yummy fragrance.
