Dior Pure Poison Eau de Parfum

I remember when this fragrance came out. I was at the university. Once a month I used to buy a British version of Cosmopolitan magazine. I remember the ad and a little magazine "sample". Back then it smelled divine and like nothing I had known before. It was luxurious and so fancy. Unfortunately, I never got to purchase the fragrance back then, but now I am a proud owner of a small bottle, that is a piece of art. itself. I love the deep purple cap and a lovely iridescent white bottle.
The smell itself is one of the best interpretation of white flowers ever. I usually do not like jasmine in my perfume, but this one is addictive and so sophisticated. It is rich and might smell heavy ( I think this scent might cause a headache). A little goes a long was as the scent is very long lasting and has a decent silliage too. I love the smell of oragne blossom and how it balances the jasmine. The base of sandalwood is deep and warm. It might be a day scent if a woman knows how to wear it not to intimidate the "audience", otherwise an evening perfume. Worth trying. They don't make them like that anymore.

Pure Poison smells nice - a refreshing white floral that's subtle and clean. With a burst of gardenia and jasmine scents softly enhanced by warm citrusy notes and just a hint of sandalwood, this fragrance is feminine and elegant. The scent is heady, without being migraine-inducing, and the bitterness of the orange blossom keeps it from being overly sweet floral.
Inoffensive and crowd-pleasing, this is completely different from the original Poison, which is full of character and quite a polarising fragrance. Not only do the two not share the same scent DNA, they don't share the same personality, either. Where Poison is hypnotic -regardless of whether one likes the scent - this one is just pleasant. Earlier, I described this as "nice", and it is - in every sense of the word, including any connotation the word may have. The longevity and performance are good, but nowhere in the vicinity of the original Poison.
In short, this is a lovely, refined white floral fragrance that probably shouldn't have been in the Poison family. Here was a missed opportunity to create a hypnotic, sublime white floral version of Poison, but standing on its own, Pure Poison is tastefully done.
