A new life
Mrs Birkenfeld-Knorr is an impressive, proud woman. As an attractive woman in her mid-fifties, she still expects a lot from herself and is ready to contribute her share in order to wring a lot of life's worth out of life. She sits there today with a satisfied look on her face and her head held high, and for the first time in a long, long time, everything is finally just the way she and she alone wanted it!

Part of this is that her favorite perfume, which flickers in delicate but distinct swathes up her, still seemed to melt creamily on her skin. Intensely fine-fruity-spicy, Hypnotic Poison accompanies her with a wonderful vanilla-floral sweetness. This fragrance suits her like no other, very feminine, very erotic and mysterious, strong and flattering at the same time. Mentally jolted awake again by the distinctive, intensely sweet scent of the lily of the valley in her perfume, which flows steadily from the dark blouse, she takes her leave with a last fleeting glance.

She had already applied the perfume this morning and also gave her dear, departed husband, who has made himself comfortable lying in a long box in front of her, a neat spray of this, as he always called it, "pushy-sweet and slutty floral perfume" as a farewell gift to accompany him on his last journey. Precisely also and especially because he always hated Hypnotic Poison so much!

Mr. Knorr, her married deceased, was an impressive, handsome man in his younger years and the young Mrs. Birkenfeld fell head over heels in love with this handsome and charming person. Unfortunately, in the course of the following years of marriage, his rather plain nature gained the upper hand and left no room for anything more than allotment garden cosiness.

Meanwhile, they had long lived apart and their efforts to motivate him ran more and more into the void. When he then, because of his heart, took early retirement a year ago, things got worse and worse. A television football evening for two was the highest of the feelings to him still for common to move was.

In the last few weeks, Mr. Knorr became much worse. In addition to nausea, diarrhea, and chest pains, his cardiac arrhythmias became more and more severe; even the doctor knew no advice. The sunny spring was drawing to a close and was in full bloom, as were the many wild lilies of the valley in the forest and garden. Then, a few days ago, after a violent seizure and severe palpitations, Mr. Knorr simply stopped breathing.

Now Mrs. Birkenfeld-Knorr sits adorably by the coffin in silent grief. With a suppressed tear in her eye and a hidden smile of her lips, both from an honest heart, she looks contentedly at her arrangement for the deceased.

All around a wreath of pretty, fragrant lilies of the valley, the characteristic, sweet signature of her fragrance, with a fragrant wild rose centered on the coffin, the noble counterpart in the floral duel of notes in perfume. In front of it, a thick vase with a mighty bouquet of jasmine and tuberose stems, as well as the large branch of an almond tree, which flank the sweetly aromatic floral opulence of the perfume so spiritedly. For the in parts fruity juiciness of the beginning of the fragrance of Hypnotic Poison, a basket full of plums as well as apricots stands to the right and left of each of the unloved. The spicy underpinned by the allspice, very fine coconut note, which gives the beginning additionally the special, Mr. Knorr would not have noticed anyway and so it is content for the long and so seductive farewell in the form of a, already present for a long time vanilla note, with a balsamic incense in vanilla and sandalwood each and a fragrance candle vanilla, which shines him the last little light.

For the evening, Mrs. Birkenfeld-Knorr had a ticket reserved for the symphony concert all to herself. She has also already signed up for a dance class. It starts tomorrow, just like her new life!

Until then, thank you very much, and be careful if you smell Hypnotic Poison!

Love Potion #9
"Hypnotic Poison" as EdT was given to my girlfriend last week, introduced to my collection and I was surprised that I hadn't written about this classic yet. Because here I wouldn't even put the word "more modern" in front of the word "classic" anymore, because this elixir of love has definitely earned itself legend status, from the clubs to the bedrooms of this world...

I have smelled "Hypnotic Poison EDT" often and always felt it, but despite its enormous sweetness and potency, the scent of partners, women, companions, etc. never hung out of my throat. That's something you have to manage first. For me this red apple (?) is extremely sensual, wicked, playful and erotic, almost the epitome of these attributes. At least if you're a kid of the '90s. This rosy plum with shredded coconut on top, which slowly melts on the skin and runs into a mandelic dream of vanilla and milk chocolate, is seductively high ten. So control and logic go on a journey. All in all rather youthful and extroverted, pushy and very self-confident, but definitely with unbelievable attraction and undressing power. Here reputation and bottle, flow and base, power and elegance simply go together. Sweaty, turgid, shoving. The smell rocks! Lady and whore in one. What more could a man want?

Flacon: sexy, sensual, cult
Sillage: powerful and unsmellable
Durability: one long lasting - 10-15 hours

Conclusion: one of the most sensual women's classics in the mainstream. Sexy, delicious, quality enough. Absolute go-go!

A love that never ends
I am writing my review on the much-maligned new version, which has unfortunately lost its power, but still holds its magic and luster.

I knew HP already longer, then I wore him even times to work, of course, only with mini dosage. The fragrance has always been very positive. Then I lost track of the fragrance, and got to know other, supposedly better candidates!

But I have never forgotten Hypnotic Poison! Last year we could, me and my better half after an endlessly long winter (in the lockdown), finally once again to Lake Constance, it was so beautiful! Of course we got thirsty as time went on, and the waitresses at the lakeside promenade were very nice and friendly. And we were always surrounded by such a beautiful fragrance. So fine-spicy-oriental, smelling of vanilla. Not a cloud of fragrance, but just a whiff when the lady approached us.
Immediately I knew that was Hypnotic Poison, we knew each other from before. And I knew, I must have the fragrance again. It was like a hint with the fence post, if you know that.

If you look at the fragrance notes, Hypnotic Poison was unfortunately robbed of its power, which has happened to many "strong" fragrances lately. On the page of Dior are only listed as a top note the bittersweet almond, in the heart note jasmine and the slightly spicy vanilla in the base. At least there is it but still to buy, you can be almost happy about it.

I myself smell as the very first only almonds, nothing else. The floral notes unfortunately go a little below, also the jasmine note is not very present with me. Coconut I no longer smell out, which I now find not so bad. Everything spicy is only subtly and discreetly perceptible. On my skin is after a little while only the vanilla there, but, no bored vanilla, but with a delicate, very slightly smoky woody spice underlaid. Almost like a subtle cream, only more multifaceted and after a while only a skin scent, but a very nice one. I still enhance this effect with my roll-on from HP, which I consider a good invention.
In my environment, the red apple is no longer worn at all, since grad other fragrances are more popular.....but, I would not care if so.

Unmistakable and unforgotten, the beauty of yesteryear reappears and draws me back under its spell! Is not so bad, if you do not immediately fall with the door in the house.....or?!

On the website of Dior, by the way, a sentence is quoted, I wanted to get rid of at the end, because I find the really very appropriate:
Hypnotic Poison is not worn, it wears you. Period.

Times change
1999. Last year in high school. Maria (name changed) from the parallel class had rich parents and so she presented the bottle during the big break in the schoolyard. Wow. What an unattainable scent. My mum would have shown me a bird if I had asked for 80 DM. I could look at the flea market, was her answer.
2020. 2:30. The DHL messenger pushes a package into my hand... thanks to the souk the poison is now mine. To the souk. To the lovely community here and to my mom. Back then I didn't understand a lot of things, today I am even more grateful. I'm going to watch an episode of Buffy, admire the bottle and quietly say to myself: "now I have it too". ?

Bondage of the senses..
so it seems to me when you walk past me... This perfume triggers unprecedented in me!
I can't think straight - you seem like an aphrodisiac to me. I forget the moment you touch me everything around me and I'm like enchanted.
You go with a dirty love story - but not with the good woman next door.

Senses again:
When I could perceive this fragrance the first time I was flashed and was completely torn from the conversation. It was extreme and I have to say: It's still my favorite fragrance on a woman.
Sweet and full-bodied... perfectly balanced but not suitable for everyone, because it radiates a certain dominance to the sweetness.
I associate with the scent - black hair - green eyes and the certain something in the eye. Of course also in blond/brown/red wearable

Recommendation goes out quite clearly because this is a small masterpiece which I smell again and again gladly.
