Summary: Today I decided it was time for a new one in my collection. After sniffing and sniffing I came home with Poison by Dior. And I fell in love with this ... It's a smell I cannot describe, unique, long lasting, classy and mysterious. I really miss those kind of perfumes nowadays.
Summary: Completely agree with moonprismpower, I have a bottle from 1992 and one from 1997, and it certainly has an incredible aura that the new one lacks. One spray and it hits a whole room.. Simply gorgeous!

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.
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.
