    Default Dior Fragrances Pour Femme

    I am looking for something similar to the sensual level of Angel for a special lady. I have tried Fracas, Black Orchid, Angel (favorite), Chanel Coco Ma., Carnal Flower, Shalimar and a couple others. Shalimar and Angel are my favorites out of that bunch by a mile. I have heard that Dior makes some very sensual perfumes like Poison and Addict but have never smelled them. What are some of your favorites from the house of Dior and which IYO's have the highest shock value? Thanks as always, ladies!!

    How much different from the original Poison are the others? (Midnight Poison, Hypnotic Poison, etc.)

    Chanel No. 5. There is nothing like it.

    To me Hypnotic Poison is an oriental with lots of gourmandy qualities without getting too sweet. ( vanilla,musk,some kind of wood, jasmine most prominent on my skin) Poison is Honeyed blackberries with tuberose and some spices on my skin. Also a real powerfrag. Hypnotic Poison is more "polite" ,but also quite seductive.

    Thanks! I'm gonna have to get some samples and decide. Therese, haven't smelled a Chanel I didn't like and that one is the queen.

    If you're a fan of things like Angel and Black Orchid, both the original Poison and Hypnotic Poison are must-tries.

    I know a lot of the current Dior formulations come in for a lot of criticism, but I love Miss Dior, Diorella and Diorissimo. I never smelled the originals though. They must have been amazing.

    Well, this is right up my alley ... I live for Dior;

    Hypnotic Poison is very sexy and luxurious.
    Almonds, vanilla, a touch of musk ... soooo
    F'ing good, a must try for any Angel fan!

    Poison is more classy than Hypnotic. More
    fruity, heavy as all hell, but nice on the right
    woman. Hard not to think of Alexis Carrington
    when smelling this juice. A love/hate frag.

    Midnight Poison is a rose galore, a very dark
    rose scent. Quite masculine actually, definately
    unisex. Not sweet per se!

    Keep away from Tendre and Pure Poison; dull!

    Dior Addict is another nauseatingly sweet scent,
    but in the good way. It's an EdP so it'll last you
    forever. It's all but sophisticated; it's actually kinda
    tacky, could might as well have been launched with
    Britney or Paris' name on it. But still good as hell!

    Miss Dior Chérie is Diors teenager favourite. Very
    sweet and innocent. Has the smell of caramel popcorn
    listed, gotta love that right?!
    The smell of heaven to some - catpee to others!
    Try it, maybe you'll like it.

    Dolce Vita is a sweet floral woody scent, borderline
    unisex.
    Some say it screams grandma, but I say it screams
    good taste.

    Not a Dior, but you should definitively try Balenicaga Talisman.

    hopefully, one of these is the one that a girl had on in a retail store that made me stop in my tracks. i was in disbelief that someone could smell that mesmerizing.

    Good as Hypnotic Poison is, it's unfortunately also
    quite recognizable, so if she was in this frag, you'll
    know the second you sniff it. It is indeed hypnotic!

    While you're at it, try out Dior Homme, it's very, very
    feminine, many guys refuse to wear it, it's based on
    iris, which gives it a make-up/lipstick'ish smell ...

    Have you tried La Rose Angel? It's Angel with her gladrags on, definitely worth a try if you liked Angel.

    I'll recommend another non-Dior for a fan of Angel - Calvin Klein's Euphoria - very sexy, very sultry! It's my favorite Calvin Klein since his 1978 original, and my fiance loves it too - he actually requests it!

    (from BN directory)
    Top Notes - Pomegranate, Persimmon, "Lush Green Accord"
    Middle Notes - Lotus Blossom, Champaca Flower, Black Orchid
    Base Notes - Liquid Amber, Black Violet, Cream Accord, Mahogany Wood
