Perfume history: the history of classic perfumes

Poison by Dior


Poison by Dior

The history
In 1985, Poison revolutionized the world of perfume. To illustrate his desire to be a perfumer, Christian Dior declared: "A perfume is an open door to a closed world."

Since its launch, Poison has told a story, the legend of the seductress who takes risks and has lover after lover. Poison became a legendary reference in perfume.

The scent
Created by the perfumer Édouard Fléchier, Poison imposes a powerful and mysterious harmony. Poison is a perfume from elsewhere, it's the discovery of a new world.

With spicy notes, rich fruits and sensual amber, Poison captivates and seduces.

The flacon
To hold his precious perfume, Dior created an exceptional flacon. A glass apple, the symbol of temptation, was sculpted from dark amethyst and it conserves the roundness, warmth and sensuality of the fragrance.
