Dior Poison Eau de Toilette
Advantages: Smells like my family, strong.
I have always known this fragrance ever since I was a little girl, it really reminds me of my gran because she wore it, my mum used to always wear it too and I even owned this when I was younger! I think its something that will be passed down along us all, because that seems to be how its gone now!
Recently, my mum received this of my brother and it made me want to review it because I remembered how nice it was, I think I have used this more than my mum, I always take cheeky sprays whenever she isn't looking!
The perfume is extremely expensive, its £50.00 for 30ml! I am sure it can be bought cheaper though if you look around ( I am pretty sure my brother said he got it on sale for a lot cheaper than £50.00, what a nice thing to inform my mother of! )
The appearance of the perfume is quite classic, and I think the bottle shape varies in style the bigger sizes you get, because as I remember the bottle I owned years ago was in the style above, a lot more rounded than the smaller version, the smaller version is what I will be reviewing on.
The bottle is a lovely dark and glossy black colour ( although lots of pictures of this show it as purple, all the bottles which I have seen have always been a dark black colour, maybe I am holding it in the wrong light but pretty sure its black? )
Its glass and if I had to say what the shape was, I would say an apple, it fits in your hand like an apple and the shape is not much different than one, neither is the size.
It has a clear glass top which once taken off reveals a gold spray nozzle where the perfume comes out of.
Over the front of it is the words POISON and underneath that is Dior wrote in gold, very simple and understated, I love the look of it.
The box which it comes in is cardboard and is a dark green, it has kind of a marbled effect pattern over it I would say, in an oval shape on the front it has the Christian Dior logo and the name of the perfume.
Wrote over the rest of the box is more useful information ( how much ML, type of perfume ect.. )
The perfume sits in the box perfectly, and you have to open about 3 little pieces until you get to it, and there it is tucked away and it looks so nice.
I think I like this perfume design so much because its something that has known me most of my life, its something which would always be sat on my grans dressing table, in my mums house and something I have owned to, its such a classic looking bottle and I really like it.
If I could describe this perfume in one word, it would be mysterious!
I think this perfume has hints of everything in, its quite sweet but spicy, it also smells quite floral yet the fruits which are in don't make it too overpowering, everything fits together perfectly.
The most powerful of all of the notes, it the fruit, but if this scares you, the fruit isn't extrememely FRUITY, its a lovely mild yet strong fruit smell, which comes across with a spicy kick.
When first sprayed on the smell is so strong, it smells very exotic and seductive.
I find this perfume comes across more fruity than anything else, with lots of hints of spice, it has a very nice aroma to it and is very distinctive, I always know when my mum is wearing it or when my gran was, people always ask too what it is, and once you have told them they dont forget.
I think this perfume is more aimed at older women, just because the result I usually get of people my own age is not really the best, most people my age prefer something more playful and girly, this is a quite serious fragrance, too strong for some.
I think the reason I love it so much is because it reminds me of the people which have been around me my whole life.
The staying power on the perfume is amazing, I have had this on me now for 9 hours and it is still very noticeable on me, maybe not when I walk past but its not disappeared of my wrist, its also a lot stronger too for the first few hours, very noticeable you are wearing it.
I think over the years, the fragrance has changed but not a lot, just a few things, I think years ago it was less fruity smelling and more of a musky smell, but I still love it and it still reminds me of my gran.
Its a perfect balance of everything, all the notes marry together.
Summary: I love it!
