I really wanted to have a perfume that i can say is my scent and i found it. Hypnotic poison is amazing. It has a musky yet fresh scent with jasmine almond and wood oils to make it wonderful. I first smelled the scent on my aunt when i was 16 and when i turned 18 i bought it for myself. All throughout college people knew that i passed by cause the perfume scent would linger behind, and my college sweetheart (now husband) couldn't get enough of the smell. When i turned 23 i put it off for a bit just thinking that i should try something new. Ive tried coco chanel, got presents of perfumes from some other companies tried a lot of victoria secret sprays and never really loved any of them. Now (27) i smelled hypnotic poison on somebody walking by and i reminisced on the old days. I finally got it and even though its a strong smell for the summer i just dab a little and enjoy my day!
I love this fragrance!! I always get comments about how good I smell when i wear this! (Fave fragrance: Dior hypnotic poison, Burberry Brit, Paco Robanne XS for her, YSL Cinema, Jean Paul Classique)
It was definitely love at first smell with this fragrance. I have read through all of the reviews for this scent, and I do have to agree with many of the posters: One spray is ALL you need -it can be very strong!
It's a very warm, comforting, spicy-sweet, sexy scent that I just can't get enough of. The initial spray of the perfume does remind me slightly of Play-doh, but not in a nauseating way, and it vanishes very quickly. I get the bitter almond, though I don't get the root beer/plasticy scent that some other posters have spoken of. The dry down is just beautiful -soft, sweet vanilla that makes me want to sniff my wrist evey 5 seconds! I could see how many of the posters recommend this for fall/winter, and while I may agree, I plan to wear it all year round myself -it's just that delicious!
Also another note I agree on -men just love it. I've only had this perfume for a week, and have already gotten several compliments from both men and women (mostly men.)
Very well done....Hypnotic Poison is a huge hit in my books and I will definitely repurchase. I bought the biggest bottle they had, so I got the glass apple instead of the matte plastic bottle that the 1oz comes in. Nothing cheap or chintzy about the bottle -it's beautiful, has weight to it and looks great on my dresser.
This is my favourite perfume and nothing can replace it !!! Smells sooooo good, yes it is hyponotising :-P ... I love it, others love it when they smell it and worth its price i'd never stop buying it
I love the way this smells! Sweeter than all the other poisons, with an after smell that reminds me of baby powder, I love it!
I have finally found my HG scent, this stuff is like heaven in a bottle. I received this today and from the first sniff I was totally in love or "hypnotized" if you will.lol I was worried I would like it because so many reviews said that it was either a love or hate perfume and that it was strong and heavy and "not for the faint of heart". Normally I am not into stronger muskier or oriental scents. This on my though is actually light and lovely. I can smell the black licorice, root beer, marzipan, almond, and vanilla that everyone talks about. And I feel they are all blended so well together and complement each other so nicely. The smell of this perfume makes me think of cashmere sweaters for some reason, it's just so warm and cozy and really inviting. This is my boyfriends favorite scent ever, his old family friend use to wear it so he is the one that suggested I try this and I am glad he did. I will def. never let myself run out of this. I suggest it to everyone!!
I had a girlfriend who wore this perfume as her "signature" scent and I can still remember the first time I saw her and smelled this delicious fragrance. Call it a subjective opinion, but this is just about the darkest, sexiest, most sensual fragrance I've ever come across. Very, very intoxicating.
I dont like sugary-sweet vanilla perfumes, but I do like this one. Its staying power is amazing - i smell this perfume on my clothes weeks after I wore it. the sweetness dissapears after a few minutes and dries down to a soft vanilla sweetness, thats actually really enjoyable. I recommend this for winter/fall.
Hypnotic for me is just a must have! It fits into my comfort zone of perfume..I just recently bought my 3rd bottle since it's release..
My son thinks it smells like '' spicy pie with melting ice cream.'' I've received countless compliments with Hypnotic the oddest one being..."" Damn you smell so good! What type of dryer sheets do you use?" The woman who said this actually grabbed my shirt and sniffed it! I think it's the unique caraway note with almond that really does something magical with vanilla and jasmine...
Usually, when I first spray a perfume, I smell the alcohol and am unable to really detect the top notes in the fragrance. But for Hypnotic Poison, I was surprised to smell some of the woody, warmness upon first spritz. I remember standing in Sephora, trying to put my finger on what the scent smelled like. Root beer! And I liked it! However, I'm reluctant to actually purchase something that smells like sugary drink. The spicy warmness makes this scent pretty unique and great for the fall and winter months. It reminds me of the cinnamon and cider scents of that time of year. I don't like the packaging, however. The bottle looks like a lumpy apple, which is not nearly as sophisticated as Dior's other fragrance bottle designs.
