Poet's daffodil is cultivated in the Netherlands and southern
France for its essential oil, narcissus oil, one of the most
popular fragrances used in perfumes.
While all narcissi are poisonous when eaten, Poet's Daffodil is more dangerous than others, acting as a strong emetic and irritant. The scent is powerful enough that it can cause headache and vomiting if a large quantity is kept in a closed room.
