Lancome Hypnose, Cacharel Promesse, Armani City Glam ~ new fragrances

Lancome Hypose perfumeLancôme will launch Hypnôse this fall in Europe, early 2006 in the US:

The aim of the launch is to match the success of that of Trésor and Magie, our biggest fragrances,” Lancôme’s international marketing manager Chiara Allegri tells The twisted-styled bottle is a slender version of the original Magie bottle created in 1950. The warm oriental woody scent is constructed around the traditional Magie vanilla and vetiver ingredients, as well as passion flower and white florals, signed Annick Ménardo and Thierry Wasser of Firmenich.

City Glam's juices were concocted by Annick Menardo of Firmenich. City Glam for her is a chypre eau de parfum, with top notes of blackcurrant, mirabelle plum and coriander. At it heart are notes of Bulgarian rose; while Indian patchouli, crystal moss and white musk notes are at its base.

City Glam for him is a fresh woody eau de toilette with top notes of bitter orange from Tunisia and peppermint from Brazil. Ginger and galanga from China are at its heart, while its drydown comprises vetiver from the Reunion island, white musk and crystal moss notes. (via Women's Wear Daily)

    Just saw this, and have since tried the Lancome Hypnose, myself, and did like it. Very smooth & dreamy. Reminded me a little of Soul by Curve, also rather nice.

    It is not to my taste, but would agree with smooth & dreamy :-)

    Such a strange scent, but in a good way. I hate it and love it at the same time. The body lotion and wash, however, smell horrible and nothing like the perfume. Stick with Bath/Bodyworks Moonlight Magic for lotion/wash… so similar in fragrance!
    I love Hypnose as a daily fragrance.
