This dark, mysterious and elegant perfume, which won a Fi Fi award in 1987, was created by Edouard Flechier.In 2006, the house of Dior released the Poison Amulets.That first bottle lasted me for many years - from the early 1990s right until the turn of the millennium. It's also spicy because of anise,opopnax,cinnamon,coriander. It has a deep,mysterious, sultry vibe cause of the insence. And finally it's grown- up kind of sweet as from the honey note.The original formula was very fruity, jammy, spicy and boozy. Not sweet like the modern cotton candy scents like flowerbomb,pn sugar, lveb and so on. But an all -time classic, big and eternal powerhouse. But I really admire a woman who wear this scent and even better, if she can support its magnitude.As sinful as inevitable, the first bite offers Both euphoria and damnation.I just gifted myself with a vintage EDT, in high dose it can be lethal.The plum is not screaming on my skin but adds support, nuance, and some natural sweetness to the perfume.
It smells nothing like the original Poison from the 1980s, which I remember very well, as it was one of the first perfumes I ever had.I am also sure it was as mind-blowingly stunning as reviewers have made it out to be.This formulation (or the one I have, at any rate) is still glorious, though.You see, I live in a tropical country; so, wearing this daily would suffocate my officemates.But something really happened which I did not expect when I wore it the first time in the office. They were asking if what perfume I was wearing coz it smelt really amazing.
I have not tried the new formulations yet, but I would love to! I don't even remember exactly how it smelt, but I know for sure that it wasn't like this. Now I just get a kool aid-like synthetic grapefuit scent. The incense is very prominent today, blending well with that sticky, syrupy (in a good way! I hate to call this “sweet” because that brings to mind gourmands, which this is definitely not.
