About this deal

I smelled it on a sweater of mine and was pleasantly surprised, but that being said, the composition is so mild and unoffensive as to be honestly kind of boring. I smell blood orange and sweet citrus notes in general, mixed with vanilla and a hint of sandalwood. One of my GF's in the 2010s had an early 2000s-era bottle of it, and god damn, this stuff smelled enchanting when she wore it in wintertime. As I've gotten older though, I wanted to revisit the fragrances that I used to wear back in the day and this was one of them. There's something that also makes me go "nah I don't like this" but it dissipates quickly (maybe the blackcurrant?

Then the ginger steps in, and adds a mild spicy undertone that remains and tempers the citrusy notes. The original, now vintage, early 2000s version/formulation of this was seriously one of/if not the sexiest, sultriest, most seductive women's fragrance I have ever encountered. It is a fragrance that WILL get you noticed and it is very sensual, men absolutely adore smelling it on woman.In fact, I don't think that I have smelt anything like it since and it remains a very unique composition in perfect accord with its name. Considering that I still smelled a bit of it on my wrist after a shower I'd say the staying power is very good. How am I supposed to conquer the world, when I have to spend half my time respraying this weak dilution to try and get a hint of a sillage?

This oriental fragrance blends sweet and spicy notes to create a captivating and long-lasting scent. Also my skin has a tendency to highlight the jasmine accord in fragrances that contain them and I'm not a big fan of jasmine, though I love Alien, I absolutely adore it. So yeah, because the longevity is so poor I truly don’t even want to recommend for anyone to smell it.On a side note, Deep Red has an overt similarity with another Hugo Boss release: Boss In Motion for men.

Direct sunlight/heat changes the molecular structure⚗️of the fragrance causing the oils to rancid or bad even if the sun/heat exposure is for a few minutes. It combines contemporary styles with traditional tailoring, resulting in fresh and creative designs. The blood orange and ginger combination sounded delicious, especially because I love that in Poison Girl Unexpected, but this. The base notes include sandalwood, cedarwood, and vanilla, which add warmth and depth to the fragrance. I'm surprised it's not voted higher, maybe because it's not an old school or very naturalistic tuberose, but a modern, a bit fresher and slightly plasticy one, if that makes sense.I would have purchased this bottle even if only gave me 4 hours because it’s a scent profile I think I would’ve enjoyed for the life of the bottle, I don’t think I would’ve repurchased it though. Unfortunately we are no longer able to send to France, Germany, Norway, Slovakia or Sweden due to customs regulations. Suggested Use: To enhance the longevity of the fragrance, spray on pulse points around the body, including the neck, decolletage, wrists, and ankles. I know this isn't the most modern fragrance but I randomly decided to test this and boy did I fall in love at first sniff! Not overly strong but you can give yourself a headache if you spray too much (or inhale it too much in the beginning fresh stage).

If fragrances had colors, this would be red indeed, and Hypnotic Poison would be the darker red it is.The fruity notes sit there a little louder, but this isn't a traditional in your face kind of citrus. This smells citrusy, sweet and fruity at the beggining and turn into a deeper vanilla, flowery but still sweet scent when it dries down. Orange and blackcurrant are intense in the beginning, later it settles down to spicy smokey ginger and sandalwood combination. I literally can't wear it without getting flashbacks of that time and getting close to some identity crisis between 19 year old me and 34 year old me. We regret that we cannot redispatch/refund sooner than the timescales listed above as these are the terms set out by the couriers.
