    Default Do your wear Dior's Hypnotic Poison: The Original?

    I sniffed on Dior's HP earlier today.
    My first impression: Absolutely stunning!

    This fragrance is all about almond covered vanilla, creamy as hell! But I couldn't get over the feminine smell that it gave me, although I quite liked the scent.

    Are any of you guys wearing HP? Do you know any males that does? Give me your thoughts!

    Thanks in advance.

    EDIT: Every time I post a new thread here on Basenotes I actually look it up first to see if anyone already have posted it. I forgot to do that in this case, just realized there were a bunch of threads about this! I don't know how to remove threads (if it's even possible)

    Sorry

    This is a great unisex frag for the cooler months. As sweet as Hypnotic Poison is, I find it totally tolerable and completely pleasant, but it's quite easy to apply too much; even in the EdT form. So, just go easy on the sprayer. The combination of soda-like heliotrope and subtle moss is a match made in heaven. Even if you're not a gourmand fan, you should try this one.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughs, sir! And yes, I'm a true gourmand lover, if not the biggest!

    I would. I enjoy the smell, but I have two problems with it. One I can't get over coconut notes in anything that costs so much. Maybe it's not a big thing in the US but here the smell of coconut is just so redolent of cheap body sprays, shampoo and fragrant sunscreens that the thought of paying $120 to smell like a giggling teenage girl does not appeal.

    Even so, that aside, I do like the smell. Amazing vanilla, and very creamy and smooth, but it makes me throw up repeatedly. It really makes me sick. In the worst way. I don't find it overly femenine though.
