Reviews of Hypn˘se Homme

Citrusy lavender start. A bit later nicer as the fresh spiciness comes through. It's not at all what I expected from the name and the bottle, both of which promise something dark, perhaps sweet, intoxicating, complicated. What I get is quite light, fresh, a bit spicy, lots of lavender. It reminds me a bit of Eternity for men in its citrusy opening, the lavender and light spices. Again in spite of the image, for me it would be a sort of office scent. I like lavender, but I can't help feeling there's something unpleasant mixed up with it, spoiling it. There's a review by Colin Maillard that describes a metallic note, and this also hits home with me. It's a good description.
What's it like? Like meeting a new colleague at work, looks nice, says nice things, but there's just something that repels me from him, and I can't say what it is.
A few hours ago making notes I wrote: "quite pleasant as it goes, but not for me". Actually, now, after a second try, if I'm brutally honest, I don't like it. Sorry to those who do.

At the very first sniff, the inner nature if Hypnose is already clear: a half-good work. Perfectly split in two parts: one is completely good, the other completely crap, and the clash is just... err. There are indeed some nice features: the mint note is fresh, green and realistically crunchy, avoiding the toothpaste effect; the spices are vibrant and lively, and overall, it surely catches that mid-2000s ômetropolitanö masculine elegance played on amber-warm-sweet notes blended with spices and woods, here also added with a dusty layer of lavender and white musks, clean and classy like a freshly ironed shirt. The family, in broad terms, is the one of Dior Homme or ArpŔge pour Homme (to which Hypnose resembles a bit, just more pungent and spicier), that type of urban, office-safe, yet somehow feminine elegance which was in fashion some years ago. So far so good: lavender, spices, woods, a balsamic breeze. It would be a good perfume, but... the ôbutö here is quite a big ôbutö (sorry for the pun), and it's represented by a completely useless, unrelated, horrid metallic-ozonic-fruity note, or better say ôfeelö, which smells quite similar to that stuff they use to build tropical-sea notes (I just thought of Azzaro Chrome for instance, but you get it in many other scents as well). Basically some kind of pungent, moldy, metallic and completely weird spicy-calone aftertaste, which is fruity in a way, but warm at the same time. And as I said, completely separated from the rest, just sitting there like an elephant in a room ľ and I mean a real elephant into an actual room. Without this nuance, which to me is quite bold, it would be a good scent, a bit trendy and conventional but good; but as-is, it's just annoying. Such a shame!

This is one of my favorite fragrances.
Hypnose is really seductive and sweet.
This scent is great for classic man.the bottle is very elegant too and longevity and sillage is good for me but nothing special.

I used to really enjoy this. It smells like a combination of Le Male and Reflection Man, a powdery lavender/amber/woods scent with good projection and longevity. The problem is that somebody pointed out a "salmon" note in this, and after that, I couldn't stop smelling it. Chances are, you'll like this, but I hope for your sake you don't pick up on the salmon note. It's a deal-breaker.

I was so keen on liking this scent after having heard some great feedback about it, that I almost blind bought it. Thank God I did go to the store beforehand. That said, it's very hard to find around here since almost nobody stocks it, and the ones that do are surprised that they have it.

All in all it's a very numb and straightforward fragrance. When you first spray it, it literally smells like nothing. Then in a bit it "evolves" into a lavender abomination (given that I like lavender, when it is not overpowering as this) that gets a tad smoky after a few hours and that's pretty much everything you get out of it. One of the plainest, most boring and unimaginative fragrances I've ever tried.

This is a very nice fragrance. The opening screams mint and lavender and the dry down is very spicy. Perfect for the office since it is not offensive. The bottle is very nice but I wish it would come in a 3.4 oz. size.
