This smell is beautiful :-) My mum wears it, and I love to pinch a little squirt when I visit, because it smells beautiful. It is a sweet fragrance... but not Sickly sweet. I don't pick up on the vanilla in this perfume, which is a good thing, as I don't like the scent of vanilla in skin lotions or perfumes. This is really nice.
" The bewitching fragrance of a woman who knows how to use her charm to fascinate the man she loves. A luxurious bottle whose curves and facets dance with the light, a feminine and modern reinterpretation of the bottle of the Magie fragrance created by Lancôme in 1950." - Lancome's site description.
This perfume has a mysterious, amazing smell that I cannot explain with words. I love it when I got out in the evenings, it just suits personal moments. It lasts, and it's not overwhelming, it is more of a strong but outstanding fragrance. It's not a citrus smell, it has vanilla and wooden notes that make it perfect for special moments. I would not say it is suitable for everyday use, it just has that evening feel. I know it doesn't make sense, you'll know it when you smell it! It is hypnotizing and daring indeed. It's just an elegant and precious fragrance!!!
(The bottle is beautiful too!!!) :)
This perfume has a very sweet scent to it and if you're using too much you might end up feeling nauseous because it can be overpowering.
Heart Notes: Vanilla
Top Notes: Passion Flower
Base Notes: Vetiver
If you like sweet scents with a hint of floral you might want to check this one out. Personally it's not for me .
Hypnose EDP - you are my Signature Scent! I have fallen in love with you :-) Ok, I have an insatiable perfume addiction & do get around, but this is one of a kind! I was somewat made to buy this Duty Free only because my other perfumes I wanted were not available - so I was forced to look for others. Hypnose had just been released, and the attraction was instant and electric! It's sweet, but not overly sickening - it's a classy sweet! It smells utterly delicious and I also get comments when wearing it!
I love the bottle, and the colour of the perfume just really makes it all come together as something quote Hypnotic!! I wear it for evening and special occasions - but when I need a bit if a lift, I will get my Hypnose and spray - I instantly feel happier, it's magical! Since my initial introduction to Hyonose, my Mother and Sister háve become Hypnose addicts also - you have to try it and you will be an addict soon to!!
I bought this unsniffed and I must say I was in doubt at first I thought the opening note was way to familar to elizabeth arden provactive woman but as it lingers to the dry down it has this incredbile alluring spicy punch to it that is heavenly and so addictive men can't get enough of I really like this a lot!!!
Honestly, I don't even own this. But whenever I'm in a boutique that has this, I have to try it on. It smells so unique. Kind of powdery, kind of fruity but not overwhelmingly fruity. I've been dying to own this perfume, but I haven't had the balls to shell out money for it, especially since I have so many other fragrances. Such a beautiful smell... ahh! :)
This fragrance is special, unique. It's definately my favourite one. It lasts for many hours. Everytime I use it, it makes me feel desirable and elegant. It's very precious.
I find it perfectly sweet, with something unique, there isn't other perfume that smells anything like that.
Not for anyone !!! The scent can tire someone more discrete, not me, i love the intoxicating delicate fragrance!
I finally received this perfume for Christmas after lusting for it since it launched in 2005! To describe it in a few words I would say it's musky, yet very feminine and soft, somewhat woodsy, fragrance with gourmand nuances. Hypnose features passion flower, orchid, then is surrounded with white flowers and jasmine sambac. And of course vanilla, but as others have said not the cheap fake version but a warm, delicious scent.
The beautiful bottle (which drew me to it in the first place) is apparently designed in the form of woman’s silhouette. The light blue of the bottle is also simply stunning. My only complaint is with two sprays it only last a couple hours but I shall experiment with locations on my body to spray etc. For me, it's worth it and has replaced my Hot Couture by Givenchy as my favourite!
