Most Helpful Positive Review sexy in a bottle
This perfume was given to me as an anniversary gift by my husband. He knows I'm not TOO picky with fragrance as I'm a perfume lover/collector lol but man oh man...I was stunned by how beautiful this scent is!! and he picked it out for me so I had never smelled it before, which comes to say, as a man, he really liked this one!
The description on here about this perfume is SO accurate!! It just has the PERFECT amount of sweet, spicy, woody, sexy, feminine, intrigue, and seduction. It is seriously one of the best perfumes I own. And it lasts!!!
I would save this for night or special occasions as I like to wear lighter fragrances for the day such as Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet, Prada Candy, Dolce n Gabbana Light Blue, etc. However, this is a hit anytime, anywhere.
Most Helpful Critical Review I wanted to like this
I don't like to leave negative reviews on products that are entirely a personal preference in terms of fragrance, but I was disappointed in this. I did purchase this, having never smelled it, just based off of the description and overwhelmingly positive reviews. Based off the listed notes of almond, vanilla, etc. I expected this would be a scent I would love. This scent is very hard to describe in any words other than incredibly strong, so much so that is bordering on nauseating, and I am not that sensitive to smells. I can't even detect any of the notes listed in the product description. I did see another review that mentioned an anise/licorice scent, and I do smell that more than anything, even though that is not listed. In my opinion, the notes do not blend well; it's as if someone just dumped a variety of heavy perfumes in a bottle. I also read some reviews that compared this fragrance to the scent of a root beer float--I strongly disagree with that. I wish it smelled as good as a root beer float.
On the positive side, this fragrance does last a long time! I tried to wash it off my wrist and could still smell it, so no concerns there regarding staying power. I actually feel bad about returning this opened and not entirely unused, as it's my fault for not smelling it first, but it's just so strong that I can't wear it. I figured even if it wasn't my favorite scent, it would be good enough to wear and use it up and never buy again. I have even had a couple friends smell it to see if they liked it, and I would just give it to them but no takers so far! So, my recommendation is if you are buying this scent for the first time to smell it in the store first. If buying for a gift for someone, and you have no idea if they like this scent, do not risk the chance that they might like it. I think this is probably a scent someone will either love or hate with no in-between. But if someone likes this scent and isn't sure if it's long lasting, they will be pleased.

Coffee Creamer from Atlanta
The packaging was so pretty and I was so excited to try it, but I wouldn't buy this for my worst enemy. It smells like French vanilla coffee creamer and I wanted to like it so much but I couldn't.
i would buy this again and again

Favorite fragrance in the poison line
Johanna from Los Angeles, CA
This is my favorite out of all the "Poison" perfumes. Smells sweet and flirty but also intoxicating as well (I think its the Almond). Wish they had a EDP that smelled like this but unfortunately their EDP has a completely different scent.

Banana from Nc
This is not what I was expecting. First thought on this is wow this smells like playdoh….. didn't even wanna continue smelling it after that. Definitely not a good fragrance for me personally.
If only it were the old formulae ...
The Magnificent Reviewer from Midwest US
This has been my all-time go to perfume since I discovered it years and years ago. It used to remain on the body for a day or so - I always awoke the next morning to find it still clinging to my skin, but alas, the formulae has changed and there is more alcohol than note-worthy ingredient at a much higher price.
If you want to buy it frequently, then go for it, it's still one of the most intoxicating and sexy smells on the market for women, but alas, it leaves faster than an in-call escort once the night has worn on.
This is MY signature scent!
TNA from Illinois
There is nothing negative about this fragrance that I can say. From the top notes to the dry down, it's perfect! If you like vanilla, you'll probably like (love) this. It's wonderful.
Vic from Phoenix, AZ
Very different from usual fragrances.
Warm and sweet
Dior from USA
Very strong lasting fragrance. If you're not a fan of licorice you probably won't like it. I use this on special date nights year round!

Smells like a root beer float
Lena from Phoenix, AZ
This is my favorite perfume and I have been using it for years!
Not what I expected
Nae from New Orleans
So I ordered this smell without trying it before hand. I needed a replacement for my poison girl. I absolutely do not like this smell. It's so sickly sweet. I have a headache now from smelling it. If I could bring it back I would.
Not Completely Sold
bumblegirl from Simpsonville, SC
To be fair, my fragrance tastes lean more citrusy or woodsy. I have been on the search for something more complex and spicy. Upon first wear it has a slight hint of vanilla, but there's another note I can't figure out…sort of smells like anise. Overall it finishes powdery with a floral undertone. It has great silage, but I haven't decided if I like it yet or not. I was hoping for something more complex for the Fall/Winter months.
Bella from Oklahoma
I love vanilla scents and this one was so much different than anything I have ever smelled before. My normal perfume is the philosophy fresh cream warm cashmere. That one is around $40 and also has a great scent for a lower price. I have nothing more to say other than This perfume is just a great perfume.
My Favorite Perfume
Dayna from Kansas City, MO
This is my current favorite perfume, especially for fall and winter. It is just such a cozy, creamy, vanilla and I feel the name fits it well. My husband tends to like vanilla scents on me, and this is one of his favorites. He likes the creamy root beer vibe it gives off. I do tend to like gourmands though, so keep that in mind. I am excited to try both poison girl Eau de toilette and poison girl Eau de parfum.
