Strong opening
Weakest points
Poor longevity
Summary
Introduced in 2010 and created by Honorine Blanc and Alberto Morillas. Honorine recently created Encounter for Klein and Alberto created 212 for Herrera in 1997. A lighter Opium but after the initial opening notes this scent dries and fades very quickly. Poor projection and longevity but not a bad fragrance.

Strong scent without being overpowering or cloying. Fruits, florals and spices. Lasts for at least 4 hours on the skin. Beautiful, attractive bottle. Long lasting so excellent value for money
Weakest points
None
Summary
It is always difficult to judge a perfume by a tester but due to the fair strength of this fragrance I got the full impression of this new scent immediately. On first impression I adore the bottle! A very similar design to the original Opium but with a Thai twist! I love the red pump straw inside the centre of the bottle which adds interest. The scent is strong, like its older sister but not cloying. The top notes of pink pepper are apparent immediately. It is sweet and fruity but not sickly. There is a warm and spicy base note and the whole scent improves through the hours. Like the original Opium, this is a confident and sexy perfume that really makes a statement so if you are a subtle floral girl this is not for you. You only need a little perfume so the bottle will last a long time. I noted that the scent started to diminish after 4 hours so I was very pleased with its staying power. A nice, statement, confident perfume
