    Midnight Poison is clearly the winner here.
    It's a dark rose scent, which some ladies
    find too masculine to wear. Could easily
    have been launched as the long lost
    Poison pour Homme instead!

    Lots of dudes are using Hypnotic too, but
    that's not unisex per see.

    I use all five + the Elixirs with joy and pleasure,
    but I'm also a strange one ...

    Monsieur Le Grand Duc: I have not ventured into the Poison retinue of fragrances as yet. I will read replies to this thread with interest. There is much to be learned from the experiences of others. Let the replies begin!

    You are missing out, my good man.
    I've already gotten one male BNer
    to buy a bottle of Midnight Poison.
    And he loooves it, so does his wife
    ... on him that is!

    Tjeck out the directory, lots of men
    are writing about Midnight in there.

    I would say that both Midnight and Hypnotic are suitable for a man

    I absolutely love the vintage Poison Esprit de Parfum.

    This is the Duc's territory!

    LOOOL ... they call me the poisonous duke!



    The original Poison is divine, both the vintage and modern EdT,
    and especially so the Es.dP, but male friendly?! I dunno ...

    When I think of male basenoters, this one strikes me as having the largest appeal. It's complex, sophisticated, and less overtly floral the the EdT Poison. That being said, the vintage EdT Poison, while a lot more floral, is still a class act that I think guys who wear things like Black Orchid could wear comfortably.

    Hypnotic and Midnight, though not my "thing", don't really have anything typically gendered about them. Hypnotic is an almondy gourmand and Midnight is kind of a swampy rose-patchouli.

    Tendre is pretty hard to find, but is kind of a sharp green-floral. Men can wear this but your mileage may vary - I'm bad at judging this one, as I really don't like it.

    Modern Poison EdT is great but shifted to something a little lighter, brighter, fruitier and more floral. I'd wear it but I can see some guys having issues with it.

    I don't think most men would enjoy Pure. It's kind of a delicate floral version of the original. Bridal flowers white flowers vibe here.

    I've just resently re-found this beauty, and it's by
    far the most feminine of the Poisons, together with
    Pure that is. But that's just MHO!

    Duc, just say it. You want me to return you that dress I borrowed. *evil*


    Btw, Suga, it was your review of Poison that lead me to experience it for my own.

    I love Midnight Poison, it starts feminine but that will change within 20 minutes or so, and the smell is fantastic, I agree, but my favorite is Hypnotic Poison, such a strange one.
    Great works are performed, not by strength, but by perseverance.

    I wear Hypnotic Poison on occasions. And I love Pure Poison on a woman. Have yet to try the Midnight, the Tendre nor the vintage original.
