Tendre Poison by Christian Dior c1994

Tendre Poison was created by Edouard Flechier in 1994. The bottle design is the work of Veronique Monod.


Fragrance Composition:

  • Top notes:  Brazilian rosewood,  asafoetida, mandarin orange, galbanum and tangerine
  • Middle notes: rose, freesia, tuberose, honey, and orange blossom
  • Base notes: heliotrope, sandalwood, musk, and vanilla

Mirabella, 1993:
"Next March, Christian Dior, makers of the berry-rich Poison, will be coming out with Tendre Poison. While the company claims the scent is entirely new, insiders are referring to it as "Diet Poison" - a subtle, lighter, green floral variation on the original."


Mirabella, 1993:
"Dior has come out with Tendre Poison, a floral eau de toilette that's less intense than the original."

Lear's, 1994:
"CHRISTIAN DIOR LIGHTENS UP Among noses in the know, the verdict is in: This is the decade of delicate floral blends, made to match the era's new emphasis on subtle beauty. Case in point: Christian Dior's new Tendre Poison, , a green-tinted fresh floral with galbanum, mandarin blossom, freesia, sandalwood, and vanilla. This scent follows Poison, a spicy, fruity fragrance launched by Dior in 1986


Fate of the Fragrance:


Tendre Poison was reformulated around 2005-2006 and is housed in a new bottle.


Unfortunately, this fragrance is currently discontinued.
