Our dark, mysterious and modern-day Cinderella is back in a brand new stunning Dior ad that is on the back page of Vogue UK October 2008. Thanks to Kazou for sharing it with us! 🙂

This time Dior is promoting the Midnight Poison Elixir, not the perfume.

In cooperation with perfumer François Demachy, Dior recently launched their three new versions of already existing perfumes in form of an elixir. These are three magical perfumes Midnight Poison, Hypnotic Poison and Pure Poison, which were presented in form of an elixir and are available in well-known bottle shapes and colours in amounts of 30 and 50 ml, with atomizers.

The Midnight Poison Elixir will seduce you with new aromas of caramel and vanilla. It’s a new fragrance.

Midnight Poison was the fifth fragrance in the Christian Dior Poison saga, which began with the release of the original, now-iconic Poison fragrance in 1985 and continued with Tendre Poison in 1994, Hypnotic Poison in 1998 and Pure Poison in 2004. Last year’s entry was created by perfumers Jacques Cavallier and Olivier Cresp, and features notes of mandarin orange, bergamot, black rose, patchouli, amber and French vanilla.

Eva said she dislikes what she considers strong “old lady” scents and often goes without fragrance, but noted she’s smitten with Midnight Poison. “It’s quite fresh compared to the other Poisons – it’s younger, fresher, like the commercial,” she said.

    Great picture!!
    Good to see new ads with Eva!!=)

    By the way, did you have a look on the Dior official website??
    If not, check the fragrance part and select French version. Look for Midnight Poison and watch the advertising video of it. It’s the “original” one I would say: It’s Eva who says “Midnight Poison, by Christian Dior” at the end of the video!! Sounds just great!!

    Concerning the TV ad, there’s a video of the making-of on You Tube :

    Liz : Eva has already talked about her voice at the end of the TV ad in one of her interviews she made last year. The journalist asked her to say “Dior” again for him and she did it.

    Tango_down: I know that video;)
    It sounds terrific=)
    Here is the link for the tv ac with Eva’s voice:

    I love the way she speaks French and English!!

    Liz : yes it reminds me the interview she made on the red carpet of the BAFTA ceremony (with that story of basement lol), when she said suddenly “Montblanc” with french and natural accent.

    I heard that it was also her voice in the english TV ad, the one who says “Midnight Poison, the new flagrance by Dior”, that’s what she meant in the interview I mentionned before. There are also some people on You Tube who are wondering who is the voice in their comments, it seems that it sounds unusual for them. So I thought it was Eva, but it’s difficult to notice it, since she worked perfectly her accent with her coach 🙂

    Heu Liz I was also wondering… in Germany, keyboards are AZERTY or QWERTY ? (lol)

  6. Mariana Says:

    Tango_down: I have hundreds of videos to upload to the new script! 🙁

  7. Tango_down Says:

    Mariana : does it mean… HELP !?

  8. Liz Says:

    Mariana: YOu are always working so hard for this website!! I really appreciate that!!
    As I have already told you, let me know if I can help you in any way!! I am really curious about all those videos you are talking about… makes me turn crazy one day..=)
    Anyway, tell us if you need help!! I don’t know how but I want to help you!

  9. Mariana Says:

    Tango_down: Maybe. I don’t know yet.

    And thank you Liz! I really appreciate your kind words.

    I need time too. I need the coding for the new layout. And I need to add the new filmography pages kindly done by Katharina and George. But I’m waiting for the new layout to add the new pages.

    The videos don’t depend on the new layout.

  10. Tango_down Says:

    Mariana : laisse ces vidéos de côté et prends un peu de temps pour toi 😉

    Liz : you didn’t answer my question, I need to know german keyboards !! It’ll also turn me crazy lol

  11. Tango_down Says:

    Mariana : le codage est aussi mon domaine mais tout dépend du langage. Je maîtrise HTML, CSS et Javascript. M’enfin tu dois déjà avoir les personnes qu’il faut.
    Pour tes vidéos j’ai du temps libre jusqu’à début octobre, après je renfile le cartable lol

  12. Liz Says:

    tango_down: I am sorry I forget to answer..
    German keyboards are QWERTZUIOPÜ
    ASDFGHJKLÖÄ
    YXCVBNM 😉
    Even more confused now??=) You may not know the Ä,Ö and Ü. These are diphtongs.. Ä=ae; Ö=oe and Ü=ue…
    not that easy for non-native speakers I would guess… But your French is also difficult in some ways… I am lucky because I can learn it at school and I really approve of it, especially since I know this lady we are talking about and this awesome website!!

    Do you speak a bit German?? Un petit peu, hein?;)

  13. Tango_down Says:

    Liz : I asked you that question because when I go abroad I often come across QWERTY keyboard and always make a lot of typos, because I’m used to type fast on AZERTY, which is very irritating lol. I noticed your typo “ac” instead of “ad” and wondered if ‘d’ and ‘c’ are close on your keyboard.
    So if I’m going to work in Germany now I know thanks to you that I’ll have to bring my own keyboard ! Otherwise, I would die because of an heart attack lol.

    I know some german words and vocabulary, thanks to some classical musics in german that I studied, but I’m not used to speak german at all.
    Some people say that the german language doesn’t sound nice, but in music I always prefer opera singers to sing in german than latin. Schubert’s lieder for example make sound your language so nice and so poetic. What about his Ave Maria sung by Maria Callas, his nice childish lied which is Heïdenröslein, or his last composing before death “Der Hirt auf del Felsen”… Sometimes when I work on a piece on clarinet where there’s a soprano’s part on the score singing in german, I have fun trying to sing the lyrics lol (but that is a secret)
