Like so many who grew up in the 1970s, I also wore the 1985 original Poison EdT when it was all the rage, as well as the original 1984 Coco Chanel Parfum. Clearly a nostalgic mood made me order...

It's very rare for me to detest a fragrance, but this is one of them. Along with Alien Essence Absolu and YSL Opium. Plainly stated it smells like rancid Welch's Grape Juice. The projection and...

I’m not crazy about fragrance. But there are a couple classics that are amazing. Poison is one. It’s very berry grape-ee to me. It’s not offensive. I’ve had compliments…mostly saying. Ummm grape...

I have this in the current Extrait de Parfum that came out in 2014, and the current formulation of the EDT. The extrait is concentrated and is definitely Poison, with more of a sweet vanilla in the...

If I could marinate in this, I would. It is also my remedy after trying some god awful mistake of a scent, allowing me to comfort myself in what a fragrance is supposed to be. Mentions of this...

Vintage Poison is to die for. It is my all-time favorite. I have over 100 perfumes right now on a mission to find something similar. I have bought the 4711, Incanto, and several others that were...

I hadn't smelled this since the late '80s, and remembered it as something fabulous yet forbidding: giant fleshy tuberoses steeped in spiced Concord wine, absolutely unmistakable as anything but...

I really love this perfume, in spite of it being a little different than what I normally go for. It does smell very much like the entirety of the 1980s to me, as it probably does for most people...

I have tried the vintage and at least a couple of reformulations: If you ever want to see me simultaneously sneeze and projectile barf across the room, wave a bottle of this under my nose. I...

I had the eau de toilet back in the early 90s. I never liked it, it was too harsh and grape like and maybe a little too mature for me at the time. I ended up giving it to my mom who I think still...

Although I have never owned Poison I had a coworker in the 80s who wore it frequently. The top note was grape Kool-Aide but I love the scent of grape Kool-Aide. I knew I could never pull off so...

Wow this perfume is strong but I love it. I had a bottle in the 80s and it used to clear a room with one spray. There are slightly watered down versions of it, Poisen Tendre, Hypnotic Poison etc...

Dior's Poison changed the fragrance landscape in the 80s. Pure and potent. The current one on shelves is a shell of it's former self. I have a bottle from around 1997 (before it changed to the...

I don't know why anyone likes this, it was given to me as a present and smells SO unappealing.
