With Poison Girl Unexpected, François Demachy, Dior Perfumer-Creator, shakes up noble ingredients with sassy, spirited accords to create a new, fresh and sparkling floral that is totally... Unexpected!
A radically pop inspiration, a sudden, lightning-fast sensation that sends sparkling shivers down the spine and then rounds off with sugary softness.
Top notes burst with a double dose of Tanzanian ginger. Incredibly fresh and nuanced, the sexy spice takes hold in abundance, melding with a sassy salty note. This delightful "Ginger Tonic" suddenly yields to a sensual, floral heart of Damascus rose. Venezuelan tonka bean remains a constant enveloping signature, warmed with a light note of vanilla and musk.
"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."
François Demachy, Parfumeur-Créateur Dior
Ginger is a tropical plant that grows in humid, sunny climates. Ginger has been used for its medicinal qualities since ancient times, and its sweet, fresh fragrance is inimitable. The rhizomes of the ginger root give off its unique scent after stream distillation.
Native to Turkey and Bulgaria, the Damascus rose is used as an essence or an absolute. A key ingredient in the perfumer's palette, it finds full expression in the heart note of the finest fragrances.
VENEZUELAN TONKA BEAN
The bean is picked from the tree and dried before being ground into a powder. This powder is then used to make the concrete or absolute. Intense and textured, tonka bean gives off a sweet, warm scent.
