    Arrow Hypnotic Poison VS> New Haarlem

    These fragrances are similar enough to be compared to one another although, I think New Haarlem is closer to Rochas Man both of these share a unique heavier gourmand scent.

    I have a sample of both New Haarlem and Hypnotic Poison and I really enjoy both.
    Hypnotic Poison - A sweet woody almond vanilla scent with light floral
    New Haarlem - A sharp yet smooth coffee dominated scent blended with florals, green leaves and vanilla.

    Which do you prefer?
    Imagine there were no hypothetical situations.

    The genré of gourmands often puzzles me, realistic food notes mixed with repulsive, non-food notes. So often they smell like they would kill you if ingested. Why did the Guerlain, pastry accord become so perverted in the 90s anyhow? Anyway, I voted for New Haarlem over Hypnotic Poison. A well done coffee fragrance and one of the few Bond's that I truly like. There was a point a few years ago when I owned Hypnotic Poison, I was on a heliotrope/almond/tonka kick, I was also enjoying, and still do enjoy Jaïpur pour Homme EdP, this led me to HP. But I found wearing it like being down wind of a marzipan factory. I sold it rather quickly - I have to agree with Vibert that Hypnotic Poison is "unrelievedly dense and ponderous."

    I love Hypnotic Poison. I'm not a Bond fan as a whole. I am prejudiced though, I'll admit it.

    It seems Bond copies a lot of scents, if not a shell of the to start off with.
    Chez Bond - Green Irish Tween, Cool Water
    Wall Street - Millesime Imperial
    Bleecker Street - Purple Label (although, I get a striking resemblance to Romance Silver)
    So New York - Similar to Angel

    New Haarlem - sampled for the first time today. I had high hopes, since I like Rochas Man, and other gourmands. New Haarlem, though - can't do it. Reminded me too much of the smell of mocha coffee, as if you've spilled it all over yourself. No thanks.

    Hypnotic is my - female - signature scent,
    so I would be extremely disloyal if I choose
    otherwise!

    [Égoïste being my male signature scent]

    I love Hypnotic Poison, so it gets my vote.
    Its less prohibitive price only adds extra frosting on the cupcake.
