Summary: You don't know the 80's until you've been hit in the face by the one and only Poison by Dior. Growing up I always saw the Poison and its flankers on my Aunts vanity and loved to smell them. This one pulled me right in. Its intense grapeyness with incense is just downright provocative and divine.
Summary: On sent immédiatement la prune noire toute mûre trempée dans du miel amer. Les effluves enivrantes et lumineuses de la tubéreuse suave se marient aux odeurs sensuelles et épicées. L’accord ambré est extrêmement mélodieux intervient dans les notes de fond.
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 would like Dior to make men's version of Poison, Poison pour Homme. Wait, and J'adore Homme too! :) On the other hand, Dior can also create women's perfumes based on their men's offerings, like Dior Homme pour Femme, Dior Femme Fahrenheit.
Summary: If you were young in the 80's, you know the Original Poison. There was nothing else like it. Yes, it is absolutely this grape candy, kook-aid kind of smell. But at the same time it is vampish and grown up.
Summary: The main reason I can forgive how sweet this is the carnation. By far this is the best use of this note I have discovered. It gives a touch of crisp elegance to the sweetness (which actually settles down after a while).
