A puzzling harmony born out of the fusion of four contrasting olfactive facets:the biting and intoxicating note of bitter almond and carvi, the more opulent and precious note of jasmine Sambac, the bewitching and mysterious note of moss and Jacaranda tree, and the hypnotic and sensuous note of vanilla and musk.
"Hypnotic Poison" by Christian Dior is the name of a fragrance whose main attraction (like "Hypnotique") is the not-so-subtle suggestion of hypnotic power and control over men. That is accentuated by the description of the blend of fragrances described above: 'intoxicating', 'bewitching', 'mysterious', and 'hypnotic', all words designed to further emphasize the mesmerizing appeal.
Description: In French slang, 'poison' means 'dangerous woman', or what Americans would call a 'vamp', and that is just the impression that results: a perfume for women who want to be hypnotic, who want to feel mesmerizing, and it seems to work. Numerous reviews and descriptions of the perfume by its users include such words and phrases as "mesmerizing" and "hypnotic" in regards to how they feel it works.
"Hypnotic Poison" is the creation of noted perfumer Annick Ménardo.
