I'm loving this! Was on the verge of buying another bottle of MJ Daisy when I read the reviews & a lot of ladies commented that this was very similar. I agree that it does smell similar, however, in my opinion, this is a lot classier, more complex & the scent lasts all day. Daisy fades within a couple of hours on me, so spending the extra money is well worth it. I don't understand the comments on the lack of lasting power, this baby lasts & lasts into the next day. There must be a few ladies out there with sinus problems!

All the other ladies have described this perfectly, just wanted to add another positive review. Will definitely repurchase.
Absolutely an intoxicating scent, "Addict" is a very appropriate name!!! Love love love
Love this" just got outta the shower", soapy kinda scent! A great unisex casual fragrance if your sick & tired of all those floral or sickly sweet fragrances. It's a lovely fresh citrusy fragrance. Impossible to get a headache from this.
Lips -Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Stain Balm - Crush

Bought this online as it's not available in Oz yet. Having tried numerous disappointing lipstains in the past, I tried not to get too excited about the performance of this one. I have to say this far exceeded my expectations, firstly Crush is a lovely berry colour that if applied using the crayon shaped point will deliver a bold bright stain. I prefer to apply this stain using a lip brush for a more natural toned down colour, I then apply a clear gloss on top. This literally lasts all day which is nothing short of a miracle considering most lip products vanish on my lips within an hour of applying. Once applied it doesn't transfer onto cups etc, it doesn't suck the moisture out of your lips like some lipstains I could name & as I mentioned previously, this has amazing lasting power. I will definitely be ordering more colours. Hope to God they don't discontinue this anytime soon.
Great concept, lovely colors, fantastic scent but this product doesn't last five minutes on my lips! I need something that will last at least 3 hours on my lips before I feel the need to reapply. My lips feel very parched after I've been wearing this. Clinique Superbalm is still my HG, it keeps my lips well moisturised without that feeling of needing to reapply every five minutes. Will not repurchase.
My friend wears this & it gives me an instant headache! I don't have the heart to tell her how awful & potent this scent is. The bottle is outrageous, I suppose it would look alright on a drag queens dresser.
I've wanted this perfume for so long but held off buying it until I had finished up some of my other perfumes. I absolutely adore this perfume, I bought the EDP & it has great staying power. The scent lasted all night & I caught a faint whiff of it when I woke up! Don't understand the comments about it lasting only a few hours! Those reviews must be talking about the EDT! I find this scent very comforting & very classy,love the bottle too!
This scent is absolutely amazing, very adddictive and comforting. I hadn't worn this scent in a while (I like to rotate my collection of perfumes) and the other night I was at the movies and kept getting wafts of Hypnotic poison, don't get me wrong, not overpowering wafts if that makes any sense. Well it made me crave this intoxicating scent all over again and needless to say I haven't stopped wearing it since. A word of extreme caution, as other reviewers have mentioned, a very light spray is all that is needed otherwise it can become very overpowering.

I have to say I am very impressed with this product. I am in the medical profession and have to wash my hands constantly as well as having to apply alchohol based hand rub throughout the day. My hands feel extremely dry by the end of a shift and I can't wait to apply a hand cream to alleviate my lizard skin hands. I have been a fan of Neutrogena's Norwegian Hand Cream, TBS Hemp Hand Cream and Nivea over the years but this cream far surpasses those creams by a mile. I swear the age of my hands has decreased by 10 years since I started using this (they say you can tell someones age by the look of their hands)and the moisturising effect lasts through a lot of hand washes. The cream does take longer to be absorbed than Neutrogena's or TBS creams but it's well worth it. Also it doesn't have much of a scent, which is fine by me, I just want a product that really works and I don't have to keep applying hand cream all day. I've definitely been converted!
Colour selection isn't bad but the horrendous scent, malodour or whatever you call it from these lipsticks makes me dry wretch. I just can't get past the disgusting smell, sorry!!! A definite no no from me.
Intoxicating, long lasting scent. Will definitely repurchase.
Lipstick -Clinique - Long last Lipstick - Bamboo Pink

I have quite a large selection of lipsticks from a wide range of brands high to low end,but this lipstick is one of my all time favourites. It's one of those lipsticks that you can carry in your jean pocket for casual days and just swipe it on without using a mirror and you know that the application will look just fine. It's also a shade you can wear when you are a bit more dressed up, I find the lasting power pretty decent until you eat something oily or greasy. This formula does not dry out my lips in fact I wear it quite comfortably without any lipbalm underneath. I love the colour, a shimmery/glossy/pinky/mauvey shade all in one(difficult to describe really)and gives the illusion of fuller lips which is a plus if your lips are on the thin side. No problems with bleeding into lines,stays where it is.Will keep on buying this until they stop making it.
You've just gotta love this stuff. Great product, does what it's supposed to. Never had any problems with breakouts or allergies,in fact I find it quite calming to the skin. Great under makeup, very reasonably priced,no strong or awful smell and decent packaging for the price.Will always repurchase for as long as this product is available. This beats all the higher end moisturisers with spf hands down.

I'm sorry to say that this product is totally overrated and I hate to ruin the ratings but I had high expectations and couldn't wait to use this after reading all the reviews. I, like a fool also ignored the comments of the lower reviews and went ahead and forked out a fairly hefty sum of money for a below average product. First off I don't understand how anyone could say that this smells nice,mine had a rancid odour, anyway I didn't let the odour put me off and used this over a couple of weeks using it on both towel dried hair or when my hair was dry(thinking I must be doing something wrong). The results were diddly squat in fact my car became frizzy and dry. Just by the way my hair is poker straight and even if I don't use any product it rarely becomes frizzy. Maybe my tube was off.I will stick to my Paul Mitchell Skinny serum which is hands down still my HG!!! Edit: Decided to buy another tube and yep the previous tube was definitely off, the new tube does not smell anything like the old one, no rancid smell and it does leave my hair very soft, shiney and frizz free, have upped my rating to 4 lippies, loses a lippie due to the hefty price tag.
