Finally I'm in
Previously, I could not stand any of the Poison fragrances, they were all too loud, too sultry, too, how shall I say, too refined. It may also have been due to the fact that then the carriers have used toou much of it, no idea.

There are not so many in my circle of acquaintances who wear these fragrances anymore, which means you don't smell them that often. Or is it because one no longer "eindieselt" as before, can also be, I don't know.

My girlfriends are yes aged with me :-) and their scent behavior or preferences have also changed, we are now often much more than before, as each had so their preferences.
Where mine are still rather green, but I find in Pure Poison is little sweet to find, although also nothing green, but for me already. Bergamot is considered in naturopathy as a light bringer and for me it is insofar green, out, dot. :-)
And bergamot is for me here in the foreground, together with jasmine, and these two are probably, which play here so well together, until then in the end sandalwood or is it cedar (or both) join forces and let the fragrance fade gently.

As you can tell, my attitude has changed in the meantime, I find Tendre Poison and just Pure Poison wonderful. Both have a mysterious aura that just beguiles.

Finally, I am also and can appreciate these Dior fragrances.

A gentle embrace
Beauty, elegance, purity and lightness unite in the white apple and wrap themselves around me like familiar arms.

Pure Poison does not struggle for attention, does not scream "I'm here!". My new favorite is not sugary sweet and not pungent. This scent doesn't fill rooms, doesn't reach everyone.
No.

Pure Poison is a gentle embrace. From a distance a fresh veil, which emphasizes the beauty of the wearer. Come closer, this fragrance is so intimate. Pure Poison is not for every nose, but you can always wear it. Nevertheless, one always feels comfortable and secure.
Yes.

White apple is floral-fresh, slightly powdery and sweet.
It starts with jasmine and a pleasant light citrus. Then the flowers embrace me. They are accompanied by a slightly sweet woody base.
The longevity is good, about 7 hours. The first 4 hours I perceive the fragrance relatively strong, then moderately. Gladly this Dior could have had the durability of a Xerjoff or a MFK.
The sillage is ok - not annoying, but gentle. That makes this fragrance so special.

The "pure venom" is what lulls me into comfort.
It is this fragrance, which I do not want to miss.
He seems rather cold, but fills my heart with warmth.

Sensual, white jasmine
This is the first jasmine based fragrance that I can safely call undeniably sexy.

Pure Poison has it all. It opens with a refreshing and zesty orange, mandarin and bergamot blend and mellows into a beautiful, almost soapy but divine floral bouquet before drying down into a rich, creamy and ultra-feminine jasmine, amber and woods.

Now that I've tried all five of the 'Poisons', I can honestly say that I haven't been disappointed. Each fragrance was unique and bold and neither one was similar to the next.

Pure Poison is probably the safest choice out of the five because it is the lightest and the most delicate. Femininity is expressed so well through Pure Poison.

I find the scent to be very fresh and clean, possibly because of the soapy like quality. Because of this fragrance's freshness I'd probably wear this all year round, I could most definitely see Pure Poison being worn in both Summer and Winter.

clean floral
I remember trying this back in fall 2011. I liked it, but it was too strong and "screeching" on my skin. I said to myself I would wear it, one walk-through spritz at a time. But I never bought it. I couldn't bring myself to pony up the money on a fragrance I would probably wear so little. It deserved better than that. Fast forward past the 2012 Dior reformulation year, and I tried Pure Poison again in late 2012. It was lighter, weaker, and much to my liking. But I kept putting off buying a bottle as the prices went up from $50 to $70 for 1 ounce.

I finally found the opportunity to purchase a 3.4 ounces tester online for well below $70. The bergamot, orange, and jasmine mix to create a tart, clean, and a lightly sweet floral concoction on my skin. I am absolutely in love. It is to the point that I believe I have found my signature, something that matches my personality and happiness when I wear this perfume.

Intoxicating white flowers
Pure Poison is woody jasmine member. The composition borrows jasmine, vanilla, gardenia and amber accord to emerge extremely erotic atmosphere. And well, gardenia and jasmine are enemy of every man's heart! Mission successful!

The fragrance has sticky, slight gourmand fresh floral, soft smoky woody manner. Very delicate and very sensual. Just a hint: try it for outdoor. The sillage is extraordinarily strong. So as longevity. Let it fly around, it's not an indoor perfume.

The quintessence of tender feminity in this bouquet. Really a masterpiece, although not as strong as the classic Poison. Discrete and classy

Has a bit of a hairspray vibe, wafting around my face, and it’s just the wrong side of too much. I feel a headache coming on.
