Dior Hypnotic Poison Eau Sensuelle (2010): New Vanilla Orchid Twist {New Perfume}

Hypnotic-Poison-Eau-Sensuelle.jpgDior will introduce a new variation on Hypnotic Poison from September 2010 called Hypnotic Poison Eau Sensuelle. It was created by perfumer François Demachy who took inspiration from a novel orchid for perfumery lending itself to a reinterpretation of the 1998 original by Annick Menardo which will offer a new vanilla facet. The perfumer said,

"Eau Sensuelle lifts the boundaries between the five senses and relies on an interplay between sight, smell and taste ..." -

The nose is said to have re-worked the heart of the fragrance in particular.

Notes are: sambac jasmine, sweet heliotrope, bitter almond, caraway, Damask rose, ylang ylang, orange absolute, tuberose, vanilla, greem stems, green leaves, sandalwood, musk.

The advertising campaign continues to be fronted by actress Monica Bellucci. The commercial will feature an excerpt of the opera La Wally by Catalani sung by Maria Callas.

Prices: 60€ and 87€ for 50 ml and 100 ml.

  1. I remember when Midnight Poison was released that Dior promised it would be the last in the "Poison" genre. But the sneaky people have continued to release the flankers, what with the "extreme" versions and now this. I love the original Hypnotic Poison and will give this one a try as well but I wish Dior would release something new. They've shown they can do grown-up new fragrances (along with the Miss Dior Cherie releases...)with the Escale colognes. New ideas please Dior! It's not like you're a struggling niche fragrance house with a lack of budget.


    • Good point. At the same time, I think their flankers are rather good and even exciting as each new one seems to propose even more olfactory decadence. They have also well succeeded in turning their flacons into bejeweled little things worth coveting for your dressing table.

  2. The original Hypnotic is one of my top 10 favorites. I adore it! It's so rich and creamy. I could not be more excited about this one! Would you look at the stunning bottle? It beats the original for me! I think it's suppose to be a more floral interpretation of the original right? That's just fine in my book. Hear's hoping it launches in the US sooner than later. : )

    • From what I understand, it's a novel use of a particular orchid note, but the ad copy seemed to put emphasis on the fruit of the orchid, vanilla. It could potentially smell both floral and vanillic. Best thing is to sniff by oneself. It's surprising sometimes how key components are left out of a list of notes, like I noticed, the other day the mint for Coup de Foudre.
