I also was hooked by Hypnose. I first saw it in a magazine--and ad with a wax strip. I tore out that page, threw the magazine away, and kept the wax sample by my computer for months. Every day or so, I sniffed it and said, "mm, love it". Finally, when I went to the store to try it, it seemed so strong. At that time I bought the body lotion--perfect to control the amount of scent applied, and also great for wearing this frag in the winter. Later, I saw the EDP at TJMaxx, so I bought it! Still like it very much, although I do not wear it as often as I used to.
Others I have tried (but never bought):
O de Lancome--nice citrus/green, short lived, a bit of old-fashioned powdery iris in the drydown
Cuir de Lancome--clean leather with an artificial cinnamon note in the drydown
Tresor EDP (from lilybelle!
)--lovely peachy floral which I would not mind wearing more often
Right now I feel I have so many bottles, I am having a hard time justifying a full bottle purchase of anything that doesn't knock my socks off. Tresor is the only other Lancome I've tried which can potentially do this, but I have a feeling it is a scent that will sneak up on me (like Hypnose did).
