Summary: I absolutely love this scent on me. It's got more of a winter/nighttime quality to it but I wear it all the time. Its name is incredibly accurate as the smell is truly mesmerizing. I'm so in love with the sandalwood base notes mixed with oriental vanilla. Smells much more expensive than the actual cost (about &80 at Sephora). I will DEFINITELY be buying this again.
Summary: This is a review for the original 1998 release. Pure vanilla pod with some rich dark melted chocolate on top. It's sweet and warm, but it's not sugary sweet but instead it's like the natural sweetness that you get straight from a vanilla pod, without any added extra sugar that is so popular nowadays - thank goodness for that. I also get no root beer or playdoh at all. And it lasts for ages - over 24 hours on my skin. Sinfully delicious.
Summary: This was the first perfume I ever fell in love with. I remember it being so entirely unlike anything I had smelt before. It is dramatic and bold, and when I wore it, I always felt an air of anticipation, as though something exciting could happen at any moment. Younger, naive me wore it everywhere, but the intensity of it means is really not a fragrance to wear out to dinner, or to wear to work. A masterpiece to be saved for a night out.
Summary: Mission accomplished Dior: you have gone from being one of the most unique, luxurious fragrance houses around to being one of the worst. From the dime a dozen flankers with their own set of flankers; discontinuing the most beloved perfumes through to reformulating the bejezus out of every fragrance (so that they now smell like counterfeits), you sure know how to repel new customers and discourage brand loyalty from existing customers.
Summary: As an avid perfume lover, I decided I NEEDED to have at least one flanker from the Poison range. I would buy the original but it just does not work on me unfortunately, as much as I respect it as a real important landmark in the history of modern fragrances, I just couldn't get it to work for me. I love Midnight Poison but it unfortunately has been deleted from the Christian Dior counter from where I live (Auckland, NZ).
Summary: The opening smells like Dr. Pepper which it turns out I would love to smell like! I almost bought it right then and there. Happily, common sense prevailed and I waited to see what happened next. A good thing because sadly this part fades after a few minutes and I'm left with something that smells like a Comptoir Sud Pacifique - vanilla, coconut and almond. It's far too sweet and synthetic for me. Brilliant opening though.
Summary: ❀ Vanilla blends with almonds to form a feminine, sensual aroma! The coconut note is light and soothing! I get most of the flowers and musk as time goes by. Definately one of my all time favorites!
