Rated 4.31 out of 5 stars
While searching for a new scent, I read the description of the notes in this fragrance and it had all of my favorites. On the surface this was a winner. When I initially sprayed the tester stick I thought it might be too floral for me, but it quickly evolved into something much softer and creamier. On the skin, this is superb! My husband loves it and can't stop burying his nose into my neck. The sillage is decent, but the lasting power on clothing is literally ALL DAY. It's intoxicating and lovely... just what I was looking for.
I'm through with Dior. Whomever said this is a "beautiful" scent, like the original, needs to seriously go sniff some coffee beans. I can't believe I wasted over a hundred because I believed some stupid review. Top note, powder. Middle note, more powder. End note, powder. Overall, powder. I could have saved more money and gotten a more true sent, had I bought baby lotion! There is no scent of bergamot, there is no exotic scent of Jasmine, there is only powder and lots of it, overwhelming amounts. Bottom line, any review that says this is similar to the original but better, probably lost their sense of smell with the virus. Honestly, this is a really gross perfume and it is not worth wasting your money on. I have no idea why Dior stopped making the original, but this is not even close replacement, so please don't believe the other review that says that it is. It is gross, gross, gross. The fragrance I can tell will not last long either, which is a blessing for me and saves me a trip to the sink to wash it off. There is nothing glamorous or exotic or exclusive about this sent. It is, without a doubt, second to baby oil or baby lotion and does not smell as good. Ulta, you obviously have no idea what the Original Scent was like. Your advertisement here was misleading at least to me and probably others. Please, please, please believe the reviews that say this is powdery and gross. It is. Gosh, I wish I had purchased the Chanel I was looking at . . .

Had never tried it before, but it is fabulous. The scent is light and airy with a hint of "poison" that drifts in just the right way. I love it and the bottle is beautiful. It sits on the top of my jewelry box away from the other perfumes I have.

Smelled this once on a tester strip and really wasn't a fan. A friend advised me to try it on and I fell in love. Wears really well on clothing and skin. Smells fresh and addicting. Gets me compliments as well!

From the first time I smelled Pure Poison in a magazine sample ad (yes, that long ago) I knew I had found my scent. I have worn this perfume since it was launched and it's the only one I wear. It was always a Christmas gift under the tree from my husband hut he passed away this year, so my kids have now taken up that tradition:-) I always get compliments on it even when I think it's worn off. I refuse to wear any other perfume. This is the one for me!
haley from Sacramento
Very beautiful scent and long lasting smell, worth the purchase if you are a perfume lover! Floral but also so many other notes that make it elegant.
Vicc from New york
It wasn't what I was expecting but it smells good.

Rena from Baytown Texas
I honestly don't even know how to describe the scent because the options they have don't really cover how it smells but it smells beautiful. It is wonderful sexy sensual but also sweet light scent. I don't know how else to describe it but I love it. It smells great I've gotten numerous compliments and I will most definitely be buying it again.
Manda from Augusta, Georgia
Just got my bottle! I jumped in the car, headed over to a Starbucks meetup, and gave myself some sprays…. And love it! Its Díor! I love it! I've always been a fan; however, theyve discontinued my favorite…. But this will do for now!
Alissa from San Diego
I sampled hypnotic poison and pure poison on the same day and decided I needed both ASAP. Pure poison is is a beautiful clean white floral. I feel elegant and pretty when I wear this one!
Dayana from Wilmington

Nevaeh from Seguin
It smells great though processing took a long time.
Aiciled from Omaha
Smelled like armpits to me. I'm not sure why it smelled like this to me, but I didn't like it.
Dolores from Cali
I love this for day or evening! one of my personal favorites
Glenda from High Point
I don't like the smell I like pretty smells. I feel something is missing to me. Not going through sending my order back I already opened both boxes because I was excited. It's been hard to find a smell I like.
Olivia from Columbia, SC
Love love love. It's just the perfect amount of sweet and sophistication in one bottle. Always a compliment getter from both men and women. The longevity could be better but it smells wonderful when you put it on and when it dries. STAPLE in collection
Keri from GA
I discovered this delightful scent when I was a child sniffing fragrances at the perfume counter for fun. I fell in love with it then and have had a bottle pretty much every day of my adult life. I even wore it on my wedding day!
from Waukee IA
Pure Poison Dior in the white pearl bottel with purple cap is my favorite fragrance of all time and I have been using this scent for 20 years I discovered this when I was 20 and now I'm 40 when I wear this scent people always stop me and ask what do I have on I even had a guy tell me what it was and he said I love that smell my wife has the same one. I will forever love this fragrance and I just bought another bottle
Debbie from Mansfield, TX
This is a subtle seductive fragrance. I wore the original many years ago, but this is much bette, not as heavy. Very pleased.
Becky from Wimberley
I am pleased overall with this parfum. Scent lasts.
Tay from Chesterfield, VA
To be fair, I've never smelled this before and bought it online. I'm giving 2 stars just because I didn't even wear it. I sprayed it into the cap and realized it just smelled like old lady. Will be back to exchange if possible.
HapEgrl from West Richland, Washington
I have worn this provocative, desirable, clean scent for years. But just as the Coke logo says, there is nothing like "the real thing"! The new formula is not as desirable as the original scent. I just can't justify purchasing it when I don't enjoy the scent as I did in the past.
R2022 from ND
I've been wearing this for over 15 years since college and I always go back to it. I always get compliments every time I wear it. It's a classic scent that has stood the test of time!
Nounou from Detroit
I bought this a couple of weeks ago and I love it!
Marla from Denham Springs, LA
My favorite perfume.
Elisa from Houston, TX
Firstly, I do enjoy this perfume; however, it loses two stars because it just lacks staying power. There are other perfumes and even EDTs, at similar price points, that have better staying power. It's a scent that you're coworkers will appreciate because it's difficult to overspray, subtle, and, dare I say it, basic. I typically only wear this at the office for those reasons. I feel like if you don't feel like standing out and just like to "smell nice," this is for you.
