    I missed the start of this – when did the flankers start having flankers?

    • Veronika says:

      Oh, you should read Robins Review of L’Ambre des Merveilles!
      Than you’ll know what flanker of a flanker of a flanker really is:)

      But Hypnotic Poison is so unique and distinctly original that it’s hardy a flanker anymore… It’s sort of a fragrance of The Poison family.

    • Robin says:

      Oh, this isn’t even the first for Hypnotic Poison. They’ve already done Eau Sensuelle. Can’t remember others, but they might exist.

      • ginapeet says:

        Anyone know where i can sniff this in ARizona?it is April and all the Dior salespeople look at me like Im nuts for asking!

        • Robin says:

          I have not seen it anywhere in the US, and no idea if they will distribute it here or not, sorry!

  2. kaos.geo says:

    I like the notes… will try.
    But I Agree with AnnieA, we are in the stage where we need specialized family-tree software just to track the flankers… LOL

  3. Kady says:

    I wonder how different this is from Hypnotic Poison Eau Sensuelle? The bottle looks the same.

  4. Veronika says:

    I remember when I came home wearing Hypnotic Poison… My roommate – although she was familiar with my tastes (I wore Opium and Versace Noir Crystal at that time ) – said to me:
    – It’s just monstrous!
    It was forbidden to apply this one inside the room.

    • Robin says:

      Shame, I love HP!

      • Veronika says:

        I loved it too! Although I never had a bottle and now I cannot understand why?

        Robin, have you ever tried the original Versace Versus Donna? It was also in a red bottle – and the rumor has it – it was sexy as hell! Did it smell similar to this one (HP) or anything you know?

        • Robin says:

          No, sorry!

        • COSMICSCENTS says:

          Hello, I have the original Versus, it does not smell similar to hypnotic poison, but it is one of those fragrances that you can smell without any trouble.

    • annemarie says:

      I gave my 10 yo daughter a sniff from a HP tester a few weeks ago and she declared it a perfume suitable for a serial killer. I did not know whether to laugh or feel disturbed.

      • Merlin says:

        that is very funny! Perhaps she was reacting more to the name than the smell?

      • Veronika says:

        Well, a serial killer wouldn’t like to be detected too soon in the dark, or to be remembered and recognized… so, no way!

        • annemarie says:

          And yet apparently some serial killers like to leave their own particular trace? Would make a good book or movie plot anyway. But yes, Merlin is probably right. My daughter was probably reacting to the name. :)

  5. Lys says:

    How is this not new Miss Dior (Cherie) with vanilla and not patchouli in the base? How is this anything?

  6. esthessy says:

    No ad campaign?

  7. Omega says:

    Another Hyp flanker! Can’t wait! And I am serious! Love the other flankers of hyp poison..except could go with less or no tuberose..glad to see it’s not in the notes! Whooooooo, can’t wait.

  8. MCocteau says:

    Maybe the Eau Sensuelle goes away (not selling enough) and it’s replaced by Eau Secrete. Or they make a collection, as for Dior Addict (does Dior Addict For Life still exist? Or it lasted for 5 months, before they relaunch the trio?)

    • Omega says:

      Not a fan of Dior Addict or the flankers.
      Not sure about Addict to Life…too many Addict flankers maybe, idk lol.

  9. jaymeharris says:

    I have the original red weird shaped bottle of Versace Versus. It is a very strong vanilla herbal to me. I always get compliments when I wear it, but I only wear it in the winter. Did I mention that its very strong?!

  10. midelawson says:

    I loved HP in the late 90’s. I probably have outgrown it. I’m curious
