To create impression of tasty fruit notes, this composition uses tuberose and vanilla, while green leaves and stem carry the scent of freshness.

The only note that concerns me is the cumin. Sometimes cumin can kill afragrance for me, but we will see.
Annick Menardo created Hypnotic Poison in 1998 and it was distictive creation...Men can easilly wear Hypnotic Poison.
This one is totally irrelevant version of the original one. Less distinctive, too sweet, more feminine in a bad way.

Ive tried this a few times in the last couple of days... there is a rather leathery aspect to this release, but the jasmin, vanilla, almond aspects are prominent. As far as how it stacks up to the original HP: it is a bit more delicate. This being said, I would likely be more inclined to wear Eau Sensuelle over the original, if I were to choose.
Dimi - leather ?! Fabulous and more delicate /understated ,you say ? I really can't wait to smell this one. I adore Monica Bellucci too .
Yes Mimi, just before the basenotes kinda kick in, I sense a delicate bittery leather-like accord. It may be in part attributed to the almond. Eau Sensuelle is really rather well done. Dior fans can look forward to sampling it.
Thanks Dimitri - I really am looking forward to this flanker though I am not a 'flanker fan' !
