Excerpt: The classic POISON was something that I adored as an early favorite for females but last 2007, Midnight Poison was introduced as a deviation from the original scent. Jacques Cavallier and Olivier Cresp created this fragrance. The face of the campaign was French actress Eva Green. The ad displayed a scenario wherein Green was dressed in an electric blue chic Cinderella gown.
Summary: Yes, this fragrance is discontinued. I was told by sales consultants in Myer and David Jones. Apparently, Dior has removed remaining stock. Therefore, you will need to stock up on this fragrance. The good news some chemists still stock this in Melbourne. I know Oggs in Toorak Rd in South Yarra sells this for $180 and the St Kilda Pharmacy has this fragrance. I saw 100mls of edp of it. I thought to let perfumistas know this before it becomes unavailable.
Summary: Have just seen comment below - WHAT, THEY'VE DISCONTINUED IT??? Really? WHYYYYYYYY?? I 2nd that comment, then, BRING IT BACK!! It was the nicest one of all of them. :( Can't believe this, I had a bottle a few years ago and for some bizarre reason sold it on ebay, I'd like one again especially as bottle so beautiful but now I'm searching online and it's not to be found except for £££s as 'discontinued'. WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN?? NOOO!
Summary: the word "masculine" has been used 59 times in the below reviews. I tried Midnight Poison yesterday, before reading them, and I will add a 60th "masculine" to the 59 already there...to me it is extremely sharp and cold and gloomy. it is a depressing scent, it smells of medicine, and this to me is not sexy at all. I would love to smell it on my husband to see if it works better with his chemistry, but me I just cannot wear MP.
Summary: This is indeed a dark, midnight-reminiscent type of perfume. It seems to pull the inner shadows out of your subconscious mind. You can just picture yourself reveling in all of your hidden agendas! I wasn't able to make it through the larger bottle that I bought, as it became too dark for me after a while; but you should be able to buy and thoroughly enjoy a smaller bottle and finish it up.
Summary: It's me again. I Just wanted to say that this one popped up a lot in a thread of "femenine fragrances with a masculine twist" therefore I guess most People are not fond of this kinds of heavy patchouli perfumes. I don't care, I love it. I'll favor this kind of dirty woody raw patchouli instead of any "sanitized patchouli" (a la miss dior cherie, coco mademoiselle Chanel chance which is sweet but rather pungent and bothers my nose, so overprocessed it always makes me...
Summary: Found this in an older Dior coffret, circa 2006. I have been enjoying Hypnotic Poison quite a bit so I thought I'd try Midnight Poison as well. MP opens with plenty of sexy patchouli and bergamot. It is rather woody but mellow. A red rose starts to blossom in the middle, but it stays cloaked in patchouli rendering it very seductive. Some amber comes through and the scent becomes more powdery. I do get some subtle vanilla but not any citrus to speak of.
Summary: I love it as I'll always love Elle by YSL. This is more of a mix between Elle and Dior Addict, borrowing vanilla and bergamot from the same perfume house and patchouli and rose from monsieur Cresp. Today I bought my own bottle of Midnight Poison... To my surprise it was the original version, being that I only knew the reformulated one I notice there is a smoky accord that makes the vanilla note smell deeper. I'm thrilled, I'll have to use it sparingly.
