Hypn˘se fragrance notes

Reviews of Hypn˘se

Hypnose is my favorite Lancome fragrance. It's a quiet oriental; very transparent. The licorice tinged vanilla supported by soft florals smells uniquely modern, because it isn't a sweet vanilla. Rather any sweetness comes across more as warmth than sugar. Hypnose is one of those rare fragrances that feels appropriate anytime.

This one really surprised me! Had read so many horrible reviews of it over the years that I didn't even want to try it. But I finally did and oh my God, I am madly in love with Hypnose. On me it's quite linear and I'm glad it is....opens with the brightest, sparkliest passion flower and vanilla and Jasmine and stays bright, sparkly and gorgeous for a full five hours! This is addicting. Love it!

Genre: Woody Oriental

Hypn˘se take quite a beating from Luca Turin in Perfumes: The Guide, but I donĺt think itĺs all that bad. As a very sweet rose and vanilla floral oriental on an ambery foundation itĺs not all that original, but itĺs still an amiable, pretty , and entirely unpretentious little scent.

The rose and vanilla remind me of Maurice Roucelĺs Tocade for Rochas, but Tocade is a smoother and more elegant scent that leaves Hypn˘se smelling crude by comparison. I think the fault lies in the quality of Hypn˘seĺs florals. Theyĺre just not as full, rounded, or nuanced as they could be, and in an arrangement this simple that tells.

Hypn˘se projects quite a distance and leaves plenty of sillage, all to its advantage, as itĺs much more pleasant smelled from afar. Sniffed at close quarters the shortcomings of the floral accord are more obvious, and the sweet amber base notes have a cloying, chemical quality thatĺs far less evident at a distance. Hypn˘se doesnĺt smell like a disaster to me, but there are certainly finer things to be found in this genre.

A very sensual and pleasant fragrance for an attractive woman!
It's a vanilla dominated fragrance, so if you don't like vanilla, stay away!
The vanilla in this fragrance is really pleasant and quality. it doesn't smell synthetic and cheap like some fragrances.
The opening of this fragrance is semi sweet and creamy vanilla scent mixed with very bright and light floral notes.
It's sweet but not too sweet and cloying! it's very smooth, creamy and sensual. very yummy scent!
In the dry down the smell didn't change that much, except very light vetiver note came in and gave the scent a little more character.
The smell has very light soapy vibe too, but it's weak and it's not a soapy fragrance.
The vanilla is the main note of this fragrance and everything is in the background.
Both projection and longevity is very good, but because of simple and linear vanilla scent you may get bored!
A quality feminine fragrance for vanilla lovers.

The opening is nice and the passion flower and vanilla result is a sweet floral note that is very pleasant. There is a whiff of vetiver adding freshness, and also jasmine in the drydown. On my skin this is never really very heavy, but in the second half the vanilla really takes over and makes the last phase a bit boring. Not bad, though, with reasonable silage and projection, with five hours of longevity.
