“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.

[amtap amazon:asin=B00085SK0Y]

When a young woman goes miss­ing, Phillipe Jacque­mod, a vaca­tion­ing embassy func­tionary, offers to search for her. That search leads him to a clin­ic in a remote area of Europe where the direc­tor has col­lect­ed a num­ber of women and trans­formed them through hyp­no­sis into the great­est and most beau­ti­ful women of his­to­ry. And the miss­ing woman is to be the sub­ject of his next transformation.

“American Woman” by The Guess Who

“Amer­i­can woman, get away from me
Amer­i­can woman, mama let me be
Don’t come knock­ing around my door
I don’t want to see your shad­ow no more
Col­ored lights can hypnotize
Sparkle some­one else’s eyes
Now woman, get away
Amer­i­can woman, lis­ten what I say”

‘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.
