Welcome!

Please understand that this website is not affiliated with any of the perfume companies written about here in any way, it is only a reference page for collectors and those who have enjoyed the classic fragrances of days gone by.

One of the goals of this website is to show the present owners of the various perfumes and cologne brands that are featured here how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back these fragrances!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the fragrance, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories, what it reminded you of, maybe a relative wore it, or you remembered seeing the bottle on their vanity table), who knows, perhaps someone from the company brand might see it.

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.
