A shining, iridescent snake-woman uncoils from the bottle with even the tiniest spray. It is the magical potion I had imagined and hoped for — an addictive combination of incense and baroque witchery, like a bell striking midnight again and again, forever. Apr vintagelover If my memory serves me correctly, it would have been the late 80s on a holiday in France when a beautiful French lady gifted me a bottle of Poison. Since then I have found Fragrantica and undertook an education. If you don't like tuberose, then I don't see how you would like Poison. This is a perfume that people either love or hate. If you want a nighttime Summer fragrance that gives you a similar feeling to Poison, I would recommend Armani Code for women, as it is a white floral specifically orange blossom and jasmine-centric with notes of honey and sandalwood. Yes, vintage is expensive but whereas a reform may cost less, it is to my mind, a false economy. The scent went off like a nuclear bomb in my hands. The current formulation lasted only 3 hours on me; and The vintage version brought tears to my eyes, oh my long lost love I gave up and inhaled. Since Poison was so prevalent in the 80s, all manner of weird and random memories came forth — it was like a hundred intense deja vus all at once. Brings back memories of me sneaking into her room to spritz some on. For anyone that finds the modern day reformulation pleasing I recommend you research the advice about purchasing vintage batch codes, reform dates, pointers to authenticity and spend a bit more and indulge yourself. Night clubbing in the 's, glam outfits, dancing all night.
