Hypnose. I didn't expect much from it.
But boy was I surprised.
It starts with spicy topnotes.
When it dries down, the amber is very very prominent.
There is still enough spicyness to it to keep it manly.
This has the amber qualities from Gaultier², but with a toned down vanilla.
It's not the muscled vanilla beast that Gaultier² is.
The vanilla is correctly done for a male fragrance. More vanilla and it could be unisex.
It also reminds me of a richer YSL l'Homme.... they both have the same sensual feeling.
If you like JPG Le Male, but you want to smell more different and more sophysticated, try this one.
This is the masculine version of Gaultier².
But the longevity and sillage aren't as good as Gaultier².
If you share similar feelings, or you totally disagree, please post.
I do wonder why Hypnose is not talked about at all here on Basenotes.
Oh by the way, can some one recommend me a perfume with a lot of amber, that has good longevity and sillage (niche included) ?
