Dior Poison girl perfume

Dior isn't a brand I usually gravitate to for perfume, I don't really know why as they are quite a big designer brand but it is one that has never drawn me in to look at. I think its because I once remember someone having a really heavy perfume on and someone saying it smelt like Dior Poison and it being so heavy it kinda put me off. I am not one to be deterred though and when I got this sample of the Poison girl fragrance I decided to give it a go. 

I had been waiting for a more evening occasion to use this knowing it could be a little more on the heavier side as I wasn't really sure what to expect from it. Said to be a fragrance for a modern day girl, it is one described as delicious and toxic. Described as a bitter-sweet floral with mouth watering orange, it has Venezuelan tonka bean and blossoms in the biting sensuality of Grasse rose. I mean, first of all, whoever writes these descriptions deserves a good salary as I would be like 'Its floral?' I am terrible as scent descriptions and picking out notes.....

With this being a sample it is in the classic mini spray, the packaging is black with silver writing and I do quite like the finish of it. The full size, however, the full size comes in a lovely simplistic bottle that is in line with the look of the rest of the Poison range and I do like it. The clear bottle means the light pink liquid inside looks quite pretty and its nice to have a bit of colour, but I do like to see how much perfume is left in the bottle. The bottle has a nice feel which is clean and sleek and just has the Dior logo and the Poison girl branding on the front, minimal and simple. 

Now lets move onto the scent. I definitely think this is sweet initially when sprayed and then you get the slightly deeper notes coming through making the fragrance a deeper more floral scent. I do like the scent, but it is so heavy and strong with just one spray, which is so fantastic, but it is so strong it gives me a little bit of a headache. I do think the fragrance is nice and I can pick out the sweet, floral and slightly fruity scents that come through in the fragrance and think it is beautifully mixed to give a nice finish to the perfume. 

When sprayed on the skin the scent lasts really well and definitely lasts really well through the day. I love that the lasting power is really good as that is one of the top things I look for in perfumes, as I don't want to carry the scents with me to top them up if I don't have to. I think this is what you would expect from a higher end perfume too, as they tend to be of a higher quality and so they do tend to perform better when used than some of the lower end products, though there are some good rivals on the market for cheaper options. 

Overall, the scent of this is really nice, its a little bit more on the deeper side for me and I prefer the lighter, fresher scents however, I do think this is one that I could see myself wearing in the evenings if it wasn't so strong. The strength of the perfume just gives me a headache and it makes it practically unwearable, even when I apply a small amount of it to my wrists. I have only ever found this with one other perfume, Victor and Rolf flower bomb which I love but is just way too strong for me! So while I wont be buying this in the full size, if you can tolerate strong perfumes I recommend you go and give this a smell as it is really nice. The fragrance comes in three sizes, 30ml, 50ml and 100ml and has a price range of £47 to £104 and can be found here. I would love to know what your favourite perfume is as I am on a mission to use up a lot of the ones I own and so I will be shopping for new ones through the year!
