Very indolic; sexy but not skanky, like warm, musky skin. Almost the most magical scent for me among the thousands of scents that I've smelt. I am looking to purchase ANY vintage Opium, Youth Dew, Cinnabar or Dior Poison-ALL MUST BE VINTAGE!!! Message me and let me know what you have and asking price. If I should say just one fact about Opium 1977 /the most important one/, I have to mention that this perfume is so invasive and absorbing that it makes you believe this scent has become an integral part of your bloodstream. The version I have is less round and less animalic, very much more incense.
