Excerpt: I can remember when Poison by Christian Dior came out. All my friends starting wearing it, so of course, not to be left out, I bought a bottle of it. The spiciness is what I noticed most about his perfume. It is very strong.
Excerpt: Have you ever try this Poison Perfume from Christian Dior? I did but honestly I did not really like the smell of this Poison Perfume From Christian Dior. I got this perfume from my father when he came back from traveling abroad.
Summary: I have a vintage bottle of Poison purchased in 1987 (Neiman-Marcus) with a (hold your breath) GLASS stopper. After all the hoopla, I decided to retest myself to see what all the grape soda nonsense is. If Poison smells like any carbonated beverage, it's a creamy root beer. And that's if you have a good imagination. I remember when it first came out, people remarking about the grape.
Summary: I was so completely disappointed when I ordered a bottle of this stuff for myself...I remember so well the vibrant and loud, yet enchanting effect this had on my best friend in high school and thought it would be a sweet, nostalgic indulgence for myself. Once on my skin, the screeching, snappy grape assaults me, my nose stings, I feel like I've inhaled a bubble of grape-scented L'oreal Kids shampoo.
Summary: in the 80s documentary, "Paris Is Burning" (about the underworld of the famous drag/tranny balls, of 70s & 80s, NYC/Harlem), one of the veteran drag performers, Octavia St Laurent, goes window shopping at Macy's (I think)...all she wants, is to be a World famous supermodel, one day...the drag balls, are really beneath her, were it not for how much she benefits and wins enuf to keep her stomach full and rent paid.
Summary: I remember that falling in love with Hypnotic Poison took a few tries, but this one took many more. On paper, it smells harsh. Even after I let it settle, I didn't like it. It was too powerful and I didn't get any sweetness. However, I was always intrigued by Poison. Today, I decided "what the hell" and sprayed it on my wrists. I am SO happy I did. It settles into a creamy, slightly fruity incense. It's absolutely gorgeous.
Summary: My mom got a free sample of Poison when I was about 13, and I loved it because it smelled just like grape soda. :) Don't really enjoy fruity perfumes anymore, but I would be curious to try this again as an adult.
Summary: Poison is truly the Marmite of perfume world. You either love it or hate it--rarely ever there would be people who'll be indifferent towards this perfume. I have always wanted to try Hypnotic Poison due to the lack of vanilla in my collection but I stumbled upon Poison instead. I've heard people saying how it's such a provocative fragrance so I couldn't help but try. Verdict?
Summary: This fragrance reminds me of a deodorant colony, called Dix L'amour. Is so complex that I can not describe it well. But the most dominant note is honey and prune. Of course a parade of spicy notes that make itching nose, and watery balsamic touch muted by these spices.
