Dior Pure Poison


As you may have noticed over time from my Instagram, I rotate between various scents, however they are often purchased with the season in mind.  For example, Gucci Flora Gardenia is my staple summer scent, or if I want to daydream about my Autumnal visit to Barcelona, I'll reach for a fresh and zesty Zara scent.  However one thing is for certain and without a shadow of a doubt, Dior Pure Poison is my favourite perfume.  For four years now, it has been my Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter - my 'all occasions' scent, my signature fragrance.



Christian Dior's Pure Poison is ''a floral scent based on a white flower bouquet infused with fresh amber'' and the outcome is incredible; mysterious and alluring.  The fragrance quickly became my favourite when I discovered the lingering smell of woody amber after the initial soft floral scent - a combination that isn't discovered often.  The glass bottle itself is beautifully designed and perfectly represents that of which lies within.  Finally, the icing on the cake is the presentation of the luxurious box, featuring deep shades of purple and a branded black and gold 'CD' seal.  Dior Pure Poison has been with me (or uh, on me!) throughout many milestones and pivotal moments over these past few years, and if I have my way.. it will be with me for many more to come!



With love,

Gabrielle x
