Hypnotic Poison” by Dior

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.

Night of the Steel Assassin’ — “The Wild, Wild West”


[amtap amazon:asin=B000ERVJKO]

History: “The Wild, Wild West” was a reaction to the spy craze in popular culture with a Western twist with a healthy dose of Jules Verne added. The series was an instant hit when it appeared in 1965: it didn’t hurt that there was a culture transition taking place between the fading Western genre and the new spy craze engendered by the James Bond films and TV series like “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” and “The Avengers”. But it also didn’t hurt that the two main characters, as well as some of their re-occurring opponents, were strong, memorable characters.

Colonel James West (Robert Conrad) and Artemis Gordon (Ross Martin) were Secret Service agents patrolling the West in their private railway train on special orders from President Grant. The athletic and dashing West (Conrad did many of his own stunts) paired exceptionally well with the clever and debonair Gordon as they battled insidious criminal organizations, would-be conquerors, malevolent scientific geniuses and hostile foreign powers to protect the United States in its difficult times after the Civil War.
