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.
