    Smile Anyone know of similar frags to Hypnotic Poison?

    Hello there ladies. I was wanting to know if anyone knows of a fragrance that would closely resemble Hypnotic Poison. If you know of anything, please let me know. Thanks..

    It's been a while since I've tried Hypnotic Poison, and I only have had a quick sniff of the one I'm going to recommend - so I hope someone else who has smelled it can better confirm or deny the similarities - but I thought Douce Amere by Serge Lutens was somewhat similar. Both scents remind me of rootbeer (in a good way!)

    You know, Now that you mention the root beer note, that would explain why when I bought my first bottle of it because it smelled so familiar to me, but I couldn't put my finger on what it was, and I fell in love with the overall scent. I will agree that the root beerish notes are warm and relaxing. Thank you. I will look into what you suggested.

    Root beer! I agree - maybe you should try Kyoto (Series 3: Incense) by Comme des Garcons for something with a similar feel.

    FEVER Pour Femme by Celine is inexpensive but smells like H.P (actually I think it smells better than H.P (it has less powder in the drydown than H.P!)

    Aqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo Mandorlo di Sicilia strikes me as similar, a little lighter

    In her book, Tania Sanchez describes Dior Bois D'Argent (also created by A.Menardo), as "a lovely, light variation on Hypnotic Poison". I've smelled them both although I only own BdA, and whereas Hypnotic Poison makes me physically sick, Bois d'Argent is one of the loveliest perfumes I have, and just about as much sweet as I can handle (really wonderful honey note).

    Profumum - Confetto
    Parfumerie Generale - L'eau de Circe

    Both share that interesting almondy note and I think both are slightly lighter.

    Personally, I thought they were so similar that I would just rather buy the Hypnotic Poison in the first place.

    Confetto is closest, but I, too, would rather buy HP. It really was quite unusual fare for a dept. store frag, back at introduction. Nothing smelled like it and I recall it being an acquired taste.

    Yep. Rootbeer. I got that, too. And creme soda.
    Oddly, I got a little bit of those with Creed Jasmine Imperiatrice Eugenie, too. And I love that fragrance.
    On the other hand, if it's the heliotrope that you like, try searching the Basenotes database for perfumes with that note.

    Blimey - what a bottle! It looks so gothic. Fabulous.

    The one thing that I find smells similar to HP is Kenzo Amour - it's the vanilla that does it for me.

    I am reminded of Hypnotic Poison when I wear Kenzo Amour.

    I think Tania is right, Bois d'Argent is a lighter version of HP.
