Yves Saint Laurent's Opium Poesie de Chine was launched in 2008 as a variation of the original. An amber vanilla, it has notes of tangerine, ginger, jasmine, mandarine, citrus, magnolia, patchouli, musk, vanilla and myrrh. This is the edt, eau de toilette.
Fragrantica - ""Poésie" is velvety, yet a softer and lighter interpretation of the original, a delicate statement of its archetype. However, it has great sillage and longevity. The opulance of the balsamic note overwhelms the whole of the composition. Spices are less prominent. The balmy and vanilla melancholy is strong. Myrhh runs deeply adding a great projection to the composition. A beautiful oriental dream in a bottle. This is what I call a successfully made flanker, it has the ability to express delicate shadings of the original."
