As you all know I’m a terrible serial spender. And as soon as I saw the adverts for this perfume which had launched weeks ago on the continent; I had mentally brought it already, 100 times over.
When I realised it was now available in the UK I almost had a panic attack. I needed it like I need air. So, although I have a repair bill of £522 for my car (let’s not go into that) I still went and brought the 30ml for £45. Why? Because I’m blonde. But man does this perfume smell beautiful.
Hypnotic poison is my all time favourite perfume in the world. And I could never imagine anything better.
They’ve managed it! The new poison girl by Dior is just simply enchanting. First of all it’s so pretty, and the fragrance is wonderful. With notes of orange and vanilla it is a modern reinvention of a grand classic. It’s less heavy than hypnotic poison, and smells like nothing I have smelt before. The staying power is magic too – hours later and I can still smell it on my neck.
If you invest in anything this weekend, please make it this perfume because you will not regret it. Even if you will have to live off beans on toast for the next week like me.
Final score: 9/10
