I came across a sample of this and it's so horrrible! The initial scent is very strong, and it dries down to a gross musky scent. It almost makes me sick. I definately like the Hypnotic Poison better, but HP's dry down isn't that great either. I think my new curiosity with the Poisons just ended. In the dry down with the Pure Poison I smell a bit of the same scents that are in Ralph Lauren's Blue, but not as sweet.

It is a nice fragrance for a right person. It has very distinctive character, a 'two faced' one, very very sweet but so very cold.It is sexy, yet not cosy at all. Strong fragrance with great sillage, very 'look at me' type of scent. When i smell this ithink of my friend who likes to look both innocent and OTT sexy, who has a 'bidimensional' personality. I wouldnt buy it for myself but i like to sniff it very much.

Warning - This stuff is STRONG!!!! I normally like my fragrances on the strong and noticeable side but this was even too much for me. I sprayed it on this morning and although I thought the scent was very pleasant, I wondered if it smelled too strong. Well, off I go to work and within minutes, a co-worker walks by and says in a very loud voice "Did someone spill tons of perfume in here? It smells so strong." I pretended I didn't hear her but I felt so self-conscious the rest of the day. I even tried washing it off in the restroom but this stuff does not come off! It is now 12 hours later and it is still going strong. So, if you like your perfume so strong that you may kill people in your path, then you will like it. Otherwise, I would stay away!

This one opens heavy and stays heavy on my skin, and I agree with the reviewer saying "it doesn't go anywhere." Sweet, heavy floral with a purple candy undertone. Sadly, with my chemistry this perfume reminds me of an older women trying to fit in at a younger person's singles bar.

I tried this on at the store and the initial smell was great so i bought it. However the next day I wore it to work and after a few hours the residual smell really overwhelmed me. It is a very strong smell! So strong that I developed a very bad headache after and it made me feel nauseas the whole day. I get the shivers everytime I think of that episode. Its a residual smell similar to what I get with Burberry Brit. It probably varies from person to person depending on how the fragrance reacts with your body's heat and smells etc but I have a very keen sense of smell and the after smell was way too overpowering. I would describe the after smell as having a bitter, suffocating taste of something that's poisonous. Maybe that's why its "pure poison"?? I don't know I may be allergic to an ingredient or something. I am not being melodramatic, almost had to take sick leave because I felt so terrible from this perfume.

This is my go to perfume. I LOVE Dior perfumes and have quite the collection but this one smells like flowers from my home country and I really love that. It works really well with my body chemistry and comes off as sweet at first but then richer and more spicy as the day goes on. I know this perfume does not work on everyone, so try it on before purchasing it. It smells nice on me, but on my sister its not as nice. It is the opposite with J'dore which smells much better on her. I absolutely adore this perfume.

Update: I REALLY like to dab a liiitle bit of the Pure Parfum of this over Miss Dior Cherie. Try it..K, first off, I get reaaaally annoyed with reviews that go "oh it smells like an old lady, end of story, je deteste"...oh shut up..Can't you be more eloquent than that, not to mention, less insulting and generalizing? I'm not old, still a college freshman, but if I WERE old, and I was on makeupalley, and read reviews that dismissed fragrances on the basis of "too old lady," I'd be pretty insulted..That aside, I don't like this fragrance one bit. It's mild and powdery (think talcum powder) and pleasant...but it doesn't DO anything, it doesn't GO anywhere. Perfume is supposed to transform, have depth, make life more beautiful, take you places--Pure Poison doesn't live up to my expectations..I can see why people might like this--it's safe & soft & pretty (ooh and the bottle's SOSOSOLOVELY)..but beyond that, there's nothing. Too blah, bland, kind of artificial (like hairspray). .Some people probably have enough personality & charm to carry it off, but me, I like more KICK to my fragrances. I also noticed that on my mom, this smells much better, it acquires a bit of a depth & spice, like a milder version of Opium...so it also depends on your own skin chemistry.

This is very nice scent, I find it soothing and soft. I think this is what someone was wearing last night around me and I really enjoyed it on her.. I would buy this. This is a soft floral that suprisingly makes me feel happy. After wearing this now for 4 hours I'm amazed how strong the scent still is, Very long lasting and not much has changed but it is a bit more manly now.

After looking at some of the recent reviews I'm very surprised how unpopular this scent is with some. Personally, I very much like this smell. I seriously dislike scents that are too sweet, and this has the right balance for me. It is deep without being too pretentious. I think it is worth a spray or too, to see if it is the right fit for you.Also, added bonus is that it lasts a long time, and the scent lingers on your wrist and clothes days afterwards. Its not MY scent, but I do love it.

This one is not for me. I smell mostly soap, lily, and a touch of vanilla. Very little change from top to dry down. Generic, boring fragrance that I regret spraying on my skin.
