dior hypnotic poison eau for gods sakeNot being satisfied with ruining the original, Dior have launched yet another flanker.

According to Fragrantica this version “refrains from vulgarity”.

Notes include Sicilian mandarin, orange, Calabrian bergamot, Sambac jasmine accord, Tunisian neroli, vanilla.

Scentbitch counts this as the fourth iteration of Hypnotic Poison, itself a flanker to Poison. We just wish they’d bring back Tendre Poison in all it’s former glory.

Speaking of all this flankering, when did Dior last launch a new pillar fragrance? 2008 with Escale a Portofino? Was that even a pillar? We just don’t know any more.


Bois de Oud by GivenchyWe’re not claiming to be fluent in French, but shouldn’t it be Bois d’Oud?

Also, nice use of a “gold” bottle. LVMH have been really subtle in targeting the Middle Eastern market with this one.
