This spring, 2018, Maison Dior launches a new perfume for women that is described as sourly at the beginning and candy, in the end, thus making a perfectly balanced composition. Christian Dior Poison Girl Unexpected follows Poison Girl perfume launched in 2016 but comes in a more freshly, modern and sourly/sweet composition.
With Poison Girl Unexpected, I wanted to bring the strong, contradictory sensation of a sour candy into a fragrance. I played with the contrast of a fruity note that would swell into a spicy, sexy accord. A ginger note slightly seasoned with a dash of salt was the obvious answer. It conveys all the expressive charm of those tart candies that explode in your mouth and then give way to sweetness.
Poison Girl Unexpected by Christian Dior is a ‘radically pop inspiration. A sudden, lightning-fast sensation that sends sparkling shivers down the spine, then rounds out with a sugary softness’.
Top notes: Ginger. Lemon, Blood orange
Heart notes: Damask rose
Base notes: Musk, Tonka bean, Vanilla
Even though the name of the perfume, Poison Girl Unexpected, inspires an intense, pungent, strong aroma it still has the sour side that nicely balances the aroma thus making it smell gorgeous and luring. This perfume opens to impress with fresh nuances of lemon along with spice ginger note nice mixed with floral accords of Damask rose. The base calms with enveloping Tonka bean notes along with a delicate note of sweet vanilla and musk.
The design bottle remains the same as the original version, yet filled with a more bright pink color.
Christian Dior Poison Girl Unexpected is available as 30ml rollerball travelsize, 50 and 100ml Eau de Parfum.
