Would I buy this again?? Absolutely without a doubt! I'm a little suprised by all the negative reviews, but do have to agree that this is not mainstream and is a little on the masculine side. However, that's why I like it so much, as it's such a change from all the pretty, girly, sweet fragrances out there. Nothing wrong with those - but this is a wonderful contrast. I find it exotic smelling and quite sexy. To begin with, it smells vaguely fruity with a wondeful amber and patchouli base. This is such beautifully done patcouli though - not too overpowering, but just enough to get that exotic, slightly powdery edge to it. I see this as being a sexy, evening fragrance that wouldn't be out of place in an old fashioned cigar lounge type of place - definitely a sensual, mature fragrance :-)
Love most Dior perfumes, but i really don't like this one. Smells like a man fragrance to me. Lucky i got it in a little size in a gift set of Diors.
Mamma mia! This is a beautiful and extremely sexy scent. It is one of the only ones I've ever smelled that make me smile...and smile when it's ON ME! I am all the more surprised because it contains patchouli which up until now I have detested on myself as it smelled rank and overpowering.
This perfume is rich and heavy and intoxicating but also bright and sparkling and charmingly playful (the sweet orange sorbet that I get is what makes this happen for me). The orange sorbet I get is what I had originally thought Shalimar would do for me but never did (getting all heavy and too domineering on me). I've always been on the lookout for a lovely warm skin-like scent that had a spicy kick with that elusive orange scent and I've found it! The patchouli also makes it smell very clean. CLEAN? Yes! Like I just showered and I have a baby's fresh scent. A little disconcerting but I'll take it for all the other things I do like about it. I just have to figure out how to make it last stronger on my skin as it tends to eat up scents pretty quickly. Spraying in my hair is helping.
I adore the bottle shape (esp the small 30 ml one) as it fits so well into the palm of my hand. The midnight blue color is GORGEOUS and one of my favorite colors. I can't believe my current HG scent is in a bottle of my favorite color. I've been wondering if the reason why I like the scent so much is because of the color... but I know that's not the case.
This one smells old-ladyish to me. It starts off spicy but the drydown is super powdery with a little spice. The bottle is pretty, though.
I like mainly sweet light perfumes, especially during the daytime. So this is a definate change for me! It is a heavy, slightly masculine and musky scent that is very heavy on the amber. If you like the smell of amber then you should like this. I only wear this when I'm going out on the town because it is an overpoweringly seductive scent that is OTT for during the day imo. Will definately buy again.
This smells very similar to Paco Rabanne's Ultraviolet. In other words, it's a generic oriental which is syrupy sweet and smells rather artificial. The drydown is a bit more tolerable than the opening.
This is definitely the best perfume I have tried. I swear it got me my present job. When the interviewer sat down with me, the first he said was "Gosh you smell wonderful, I love that perfume." Hey and I got the job! A friend at work also comments everyday. She says the smell put her in a calm mood for the day, and she makes a comment when I've forgotten to wear it!!!
I haven't had any luck with the Poison fragrances and this was no exception. I love the other Christian Dior fragrances but can not wear the Poison ones. This one smelled like a combination of incense, men's perfume and bug spray. Not a good combination!
I got a smaple Dior Midnight Poison from Sephera. I tried it when I first I got it since I am a huge fan of Poison. Dior did not let me down, I fall in love with it right away!
The rich sexy mystery scent is perfect for night or special occasion. "
Christian Dior Midnight Poison is the perfume for a modern Cinderella that intices a magical spell upon its wearer and anyone who senses it. Christian Dior Midnight Poison is a mysterious rose based perfume, richly layered over an oriental bed of amber and patchouli.
Christian Dior Midnight Poison is a mysterious and ensual fragrance with a fruity opening built around citrus tones. Christian Dior Midnight Poison has a heart of mysterious black rose, strengthened with patchouli, and an oriental trail of amber, French vanilla and ambrox.
Very sweet, oriental fragrance. Reminds me of a dark colored candy with some spice added. The drydown is actually quite nice when the patchouli starts to come through. But, my feeling is that the fragrance is quite shallow. If there were more depth - ie. spice, amber, something to fill out, it would have been a nice fragrance. Love the dark blue bottle and the scent is long lasting.
