    Default What's Your Favorite Poison?!

    As some of you might have noticed by now,
    I'm a HUGE Poison fan. So I thought I'd enter-
    tain myself a little with this poll.

    For me it's tough to choose between the orig.
    Poison and Hypnotic ...
    Even though Poison is an unbeatable classic,
    I went with Hypnotic, it's just so bloody sexy!

    Take your pick!

    (I predict poor Tendre to be in the bottom, we'll see)

    Poison - adore it, need it, five stars in every way for the vintage juice. Four stars for the modern juice.

    Tendre Poison - may have been good once. Now? Bug-spray. No stars.

    Hypnotic Poison - I'd eat something like this, but have no intention of wearing it. Me and gourmands are rarely a match, so I won't say it's bad, it just is what it is. Three stars.

    Pure Poison - original Poison, made super-light and "pretty". The only one I see as connected to the original, but I like my darkness intact, thank you. Two stars.

    Midnight Poison - kind of middling rose chypre with a lot of patchouli. Okay, but kind of the biggest "Huh?" In the line of Poison flankers. I may be era-biased, but I have a feeling this would have been much better if it had been made in the era before oakmoss got the axe. Two stars.

    Hypnotic! It was my five-star today, in fact.

    Pure was my wedding fume, and so special because of that. It's a little clean and cold for my tastes.

    As an aside, I think the name and ad of Midnight Poison fit the original so much better than what it got.



    Compare that to the original Poison ads, which feature either some soft-focus gal swanning around in front of curtains and clouds or alternately, someone's feet.

    Even though I wouldn't be caught dead in it, I have
    affection towards Tendre, because it was my
    moms signature scent before I introduced her to
    Dolce Vita.

    I can't vote because my answer to the title question would be another question: Is it possible to have one?

    Like everyone I did have a bottle of original Poison back in 1985 but I hardly ever wore it and gave it away. There's simply no love lost between me and the Poison family or make that the House of Christian Dior. I do love their make-up, though

    Yup, me too ! I found it really hard to choose between HP and the original Poison ! I voted for HP - it's just in a class of its own - good ole Annick Menardo .I think you will be right that Tendre will be last of all !

    LOVE the original Poison, lucky enough to have the pre-reformulated stuff. Would love Hypnotic most of all but unfortunately it reminds me of a not so great time in my life (rats rats rats!!!), maybe worth trying yet again, but too many memories associated with it.

    I wonder if this will entirely be a show-down between Hypnotic and the original.

    Yeah, I thought at least Midnight would harvest
    a vote or two.
    Now, if we could only get folks to actually vote!

    My vote goes to Hypnotic Poison.
    It's truly wonderful, especially in elixir form.

    My favorite is original Poison. I had some cologne concentration left from the 80s, but I gave it to my aunt who absolutely adores Poison.

    I also have Hypnotic Poison, but I don't wear it too often. I like it very much before going to bed. It is very comforting.

    Poison original. I had it in the original splash bottle in the mid-1980s when it came out. (This was in the flatter bottle, not the grenade-shaped one now...) In France, some restaurants, if memory serves, banned the wearing of Poison because of the sillage.

    I notice all the Poisons have received at least one vote now. Who voted Tendre?

    Oh, I decided to retry Midnight yesterday. It was better than I remembered in the top but the drydown was still a letdown ( patchouli-ish, floral-ish, gourmand-ish without really being anything to my nose).

    I love both Hypnotic Poison & Midnight Poison.
    I use couple bottles of Poison and Tendre Poison in the past.
    To me I think Pure Poison is " insignificant "

    I vote for this one

    These poisons are... too brutal.

    Roundy perfumey blittle brutes. Very radical, they have a big importance and strong points to prove.

    Too much for me...

    Besides that... they're very very veeeery well known and highly recongnizable... even if just as a smell, if you don't know the name of it. They're very popular.

    I respect poisons, but can;t wear any of them, not even Pure and Midnight... still too much... theyt're like huge stamps... I'm not talking about how strong they are, I only reffer at the smell istelf. Too shocking.

    I own pre-reformulation Poison, Pure Poison, Tendre Poison and Midnight Poison. I enjoy all of them, so my vote is purely what I have worn the most out of all of them in the last few months....Pure Poison

    I voted Hypnotic... I have to admit, though, that I haven't owned any of the others. I have vague memories of the original Poison (I think someone in my family wore it at one time), but my own experience comes from receiving a bottle of HP a few years ago. I still have a bottle, so I guess I like it .

    I like them all, but only own Tendre Poison. My best friend in high school always wore Poison, so I suppose I tend to think of that one as her scent and so have never bought it. I really don't like that they've named them all Poison because they are soooo different. You'd think they'd have more creative marketing people.

    I think Poison is the coolest name for a frag,
    so I'm very pleased they keep making new ones.

    Opium is cool too, but Poison is the best name ever!
