Hypnotic Poison Perfume by Christian Dior, Hinting at seduction, Hypnotic Poison is an oriental vanilla perfume that sets an enticing mood for an evening spent with that special someone. Launched in 1998, this mesmerizingly rich and dark fragrance was crafted by perfumer Annick Menardo. The top notes are a delectable blend of fuzzy and soft apricot, lush plum and tropical coconut. The heart of the fragrance enjoys a floral freshness from creamy tuberose, green and airy jasmine, clean and brightlily-of-the-valley, romantic rose, fragrant Brazilian rosewood and lightly spiced caraway. The scent gains its nuance of mystery from warm base notes of soft and milky sandalwood, gourmand almond, cozy and familiar vanilla and sensual musk.
