Opium Légendes de Chine eau de Parfum Fragrance Reviews

Mesmerizing in its softness and enchanting in calm smokiness version of classic Opium, well blended myrrh and oranges, with clove and jasmine blast at the beginning, very warm, lasts for more than a day, so a winner even here, sensual, wearable, smooth and creamy and just..incredible.
Bottle is a piece of art itself, agree.
Other notes which are not in database are: rose, lilies, coriandre, plum, vanilla, clove, pepper
On the box is written:

A red and gold phoenix, fabulous animal from Chinese legends, dresses the Opium Eau de toilette. Earth's guardian, the phoenix is an imaginary bird reigning over all birds, thanks to its wonderful singing.
Having the majesty and the beauty of a peacock, the phoenix is the symbol for life and longevity.

Very similar to the classic Opium, with a strong fiery clove, spicy tangerine peel, soft rounded incense with a drop of vanilla.
Very resistant and loopback.
A soft, enveloping, passionate, love Opium!
The bottle with the Dragon and the round window just a fetish

I picked up a now scarce bottle of this EDP on line in 2008. Smart move, as it is now as rare as gold. The dragon bottle grabbed my attention. Its perfect for the Year of the Dragon. Opium in its original formula is dragons breath...

Vintage EPD can easily last 24 hours or more on your clothes. Dont let the short list of ingredients fool you. This is Opium with the long list. I could rant and rave about its loss, however this bottle will last me for the rest of my life. One drop is all it takes.

It is so well composed that the individual notes cannot be identified. Its spicy, hot, has something floral and a deliciously creamy sandalwood/vanilla base. Its cause for wrist sniffing is so addictive...

In the 1980s, it was the scent of the Alpha female. She could dominate a crowd and any man within her wake. In our current user friendly perfume world, Opium was bound for extinction. It meant business!

It is an Asian fairy tale that will soon be forgotten as our vintage bottles go dry. Send me a message in 2050 and I will still have my bottle if you want it! Now days, I sit around sniffing a drop on my hand by the fireplace alone and dream of dragons in the clouds...

Very pretty oriental fragrance. I picked it to try and was encouraged by sniff from the bottle- it was a bit old fashioned- just like original Opium- only it was a bit too much strong for today.
So- at first quite old fashioned- it has this almost classic perfumey smell- sophisticated, strong and mature. I was very pleased with it- it seems all 'old fashioned' perfumes turn their best on my skin- it's just pleasure to sniff it, I couldn't stop putting my nose close to wrist with Opium Légendes de Chine. Then it turns to this very chinese style heaven- spicy, but creamy and all warm. I can't separate the notes but I would place this in line with Kenzo Jungle Elephant- both are yummy, warm, spicy, natural and very adorable.

Oppulent, spicy, warm and extremely yummy. On a side note, this bottle is charming and a treat to behold. This is one fragrance that makes me feel so very sophisticated and traveled, even though I may not be! Will always be a classic for me.
