A mysterious and elegant Black Rose over an amber Patchouli base
Created by François Demachy, perfumer-creator for Dior, Midnight Poison was composed with a captivating yet elusive seductress in mind. Its singular signature is that of the queen of flowers, the rose, but a black and mysterious one set against a backdrop of patchouli and the aphrodisiac effects of amber. In its wake lies a metamorphosis of extraordinary sensuality.

Patchouli is a plant originally from Indonesia and Malaysia. A key element of the perfumer's palette, its essence is obtained by steam distilling the dried leaves. It is used in chypre, woody and oriental fragrances.
