So sweet it's almost sticky
At least I was not out of a lot of money with this. I find it merely so so at best. The initial spray is awful, it smell like super sweet rotten fruit on me. It is almost a gloomy sweetness, nothing comes through that could pick it up into lighter and happier spheres. It comes around pleasantly enough after the first 15 minutes, but the syrupy sweetness stays. I associate fragrances very much with moods, and this is just not a good mood potion for me. It smells too mature, and that coming from a 52 year old woman means a lot. I gave it to a colleague of mine who absolutely loved it. Good that we all have different tastes and likes.

Poisonous
When did I get hold of "Cobra"? I think it was in 1993. Dior launched "Poison" in 1985 and "Cobra" is a copy of it. There is a touch of orris root to lessen the tuberose impact in "Cobra", which I can't detect in "Poison", but the differences are marginal. The "cobra" itself can be removed and worn as a bracelet, but I've never done that, because I wanted to keep the vessel intact. "Poison" doesn't smell as "radical" in 2014 as it smelled back in the 1980's, and it has undergone reformulation. So my old bottle of "Cobra" brings back loads of memories, because the juice contained is much closer to the original 80's "Poison" than the version sold by Dior today.

On me,no sweetness but w/ hefty dose of tuberose and spices.Thickness of simmered autumnal concoction.Toned down but quite close to Poison.
