    Question A*Men vs. Hypnotic Poison

    Which one do you prefer and why?

    I do like A*Men's drydown but not very fond of the lingering opening notes. The fragrance differs a lot and sometimes smells harsh and rather unpleasant while other times it can be dark, heavy caramely and delightful. I have not sampled Hypnotic Poison but I plan on it.

    Hypnotic Poison = Vanilla + Almonds with a little powder sprinkled in for good measure. Nice, and non-offensive.

    A*Men.... there has been a lot said about this one. Over the top. Too many sprays and it turns into chemical warfare juice. Rumored to have been used by Sadam against the Kurds.

    That being said, I prefer wearing the A*men and I don't care how many small children it makes cry.

    Having actually tried both of them, I would go with Hypnotic Poison - or even better, Hypnotic Poison Elixir.

    I'd choose A*Men. I find the Poison nauseaus.

    Hypnotic Poison is icy vanilla with insane sillage but no obnoxious screech like the Angels. I like A*Men, but I think Hypnotic Poison is seamless and much more palatable and agreeable.
    If fragrance has a gender, so does all art.

    A*Men, definitely!

    Hypnotic Poison's bitter almond note makes me queasy.

    Sorry to hijack this thread but is there any fragrance for men that is similiar to Hypnotic Poison ?

    Default Re: A*Men vs. Hypnotic Poison

    I voted Hynotic, although I have to be in the right mood for it. A*Men just seems like a more sober Angel, which is no fun at all.

    dreamer81, I mentioned in another thread that L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme reminded me of the almond/vanilla/spice aspects of Hypnotic Poison, so maybe check that one out. It's less sweet and slightly more woody, but with some similar "foody" notes, to my nose.

    I like A*men, but do not adore it.

    Hypnotic poison

    a) makes me gag
    b) 7 out of 10 women wear it no matter the air temperature
    c) every woman overapplies it
    d) age of women who wear it spans from 9 years old to 99 years old
    e) women think it so sexy
    f) if this fragrance was in a physical living form - I'd beat it with a spiked clubb to death and then some

    I chose Hypnotic Poison and I haven't even smelled it yet. Sorry A-Men lovers, but I plan to dilute my A-Men with vodka and then do some experiments with it. I'll let you know what happens.

    Haven't smell Hypnotic Poison but I want to so bad along with Midnight Poison.

    To me A*men smells purely like armpit and not in a good way. I think I'll be a very good alternative to pepper spray but too bad it's too expensive lol

    I may have to try out Hypnotic Poison and Midnight Poison, both seem a bit up my alley. I like the Gourmands like Lolita!

    A*Men grosses me out for some reason. Hypnotic Poison is wonderful in cooler weather. But a real tramp in the heat.

    My vote is for HP, of course.


    Oh, and for the record, I do wear Hypnotic Poison in the heat of Malaysia.

    I went for Hypnotic Poison, simply because, not only A*Men makes me choke, but also, Hypnotic Poison does have some subtleties hard to come by in A*Men

    Sorry, my original reply was utterly useless. Have you tried Gaultier2? It's sweet like Hypnotic.

    :-). Yes, I have a sample of it. Its not bad, but there are zillion sweet fragrances that I like better :-) So if its like G2 its not for me. I will try to sample Hypnotic in local perfumery but last time I checked they had almost all Poisons except of Hypnotic . God ,please give me power to spray this on my wrist in front of SA in this perfume forgotten land :-).
