Pure Poison by Christian Dior c2004

Pure Poison by Christian Dior: launched in 2004. It was created by Carlos Benaim, Dominique Ropion and Olivier Polge.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It is classified as a white floral fragrance for women.
  • Top notes: Sicilian mandarin, sweet orange, bergamot, and jasmine 
  • Middle notes: gardenia, and orange blossom 
  • Base notes: musk, cedarwood, sandalwood, and white amber


Pure Poison appears to have had a reformulation around 2011. When this reformulation occured, the perfume repackaged in a new bottle.

Beware of Fakes! Pure Poison has been terribly faked. Here are some photos of a fake bottle and box that I had received in a large lot of Poison perfumes. All bottles were factory sealed in cellophane. I have found that the fake Pure Poison boxes are imprinted with the same batch code "8U02" and the bottle has a different batch code, "6F01" . Shown in comparison is my own bottle of genuine Pure Poison.

 Notice the major difference in the finishes on the glass. On the real bottle, it is very opalescent and gives a double image to the lettering on the bottle. The fake has a very opaque white finish with very little opalescence, there is no double image to the font. Also notce the base of the real bottle has a nice, thick, clear glass, this is not seen on the fake.

 Here is a nice example of the sprayers. The fake one has a silver spray head, while the genuine has a matching collar and spray head.

 Another view of the spray heads and again, you can see the difference in the glass.

 Differences in the font. On the fake, the lettering is slightly bolder, especially on the word Poison. Again, you can see the mirroring double image of the working on the genuine.

 Notice the differences in the labels on the base. The fake actually has the label for Tendre Poison Eau de Toilette!! On the genuine all wording is in white, on the fake, it is a goldish color. Notice the major differences in the glass too.

 The mold lines on the fake are very pronounced and not smooth as on the genuone bottle,plus the opalescence is all wrong on the fake.
