After the success of Hypnose for women, Lancome launched masculine version of this perfume in a similar bottle. Actor Clive Owen is the new face of Lancome's Hypnose Homme men's fragrance. Perfume is built on a contrast between aromatic and oriental notes. The composition starts out with relaxing fresh notes of bergamot, mandarine and green mint note followed by a spicy cardamom accord. Its aromatic heart is made of lavender note from the South of France harmonized with spices and almond note. The oriental base is composed of patchouli from Indonesia, musk and amber. It was created by Maurice Roucel in 2007.

This is a very nice fragrance. The opening screams mint and lavender and the dry down is very spicy. Perfect for the office since it is not offensive. The bottle is very nice but I wish it would come in a 3.4 oz. size.

I get a sweet frutiy scent. The sweetness bothered me a bit actually. Unisex on the masculine side. Versatile and daytime non-offensive. Very nice bottle. Seems that it lasts 8+ hours. I don't think it projects much.

Reading the reviews they are vastly different - leads me to believe this one is highly dependent on the skin and nose of the wearer.

I like it but don't see myself wearing it much as it felt too cloying.

This is sweet but not so sweet, fresh but not so fresh, amber but not so amber, good but... not so good to buy it. And definitely nothing to hype about.
But if you want to have a light version of Le male&Dior Homme&Eau Sauvage (combined and watered) try this one maybe you will like it. It's not bad don't get me wrong - just not my style and I think I have better bottles.

Can I say this without sounding patronising. I can see that there has been a massive amount of thought and care put into everything, the packaging is stunning, it's nicer then any other fragrance I own. It is like opening up something really special. The bottle itself again is gorgeous, I love it, so masculine and lovely to handle. Now for the fragrance, while I can't say it's amazing, it is very solid, inoffensively spicy and woody. It contains pachouli, one of my favourite elements. I can't see anyone going crazy for it, but it is a really nice smell, will stick with it as an occasional fragrance, until they decide to give it the boot as they did with men's Miracle, sad times!!!!

First day with it and it is nice. Even first day, I got 3 complement about this cologne. It has a unique smell, however after 2 hours, it was reminding me little bit of Dior Fahrenheit but this is just my though.

Longevity is very nice on my skin. Some people say it has really short longevity but until 4th hours I was still getting the smell from myself, 8 hours later I though it was gone but I got my 3rd complement after 8 hours. So it keeps up with you around 6-8 hours. Also I see that again if you don't get the smell, it doesn't mean cologne gone away, still would be with you as it happen today.

This for me is a deeply sensual, sexy fragrance.
A friend of mine recently told me he liked YSL La nuit de L'Homme and it was his lady killing, go to signiture scent. I was thinking of fragrances he may like, considering he loved that so much and this one sprung immediately to mind as a recommendation.
Hypnose automatically makes me think of a 'date' fragrance something of the ilk of YSL or D&G The One.
Despite never owning a bottle until now I got samples when it came out and subsequently tried it a few times since and was always of the same opinion..it's good, classy, unique juice.
Then when I came to purchase it about 12 months ago I couldn't find it anywhere...every Lancome counter I tried didn't have it. Then at Christmas I saw it reduced in a bargain bucket but unfortunately didn't have my wallet so returned later in the day and it had been sold!
I figured I was destined not to own this one but to my surprise I found it very cheaply in a perfume shop with a massive selection of rare fragrances.
So the major thing with Hypnose for me is the unmissable cardamom note spicy and aromatic with a touch of lavender and a lush kinda creamy base of amber and patchouli. This is not everyone's idea of a great fragrance but to me it's refined and beautiful, warm and spicy smooth but slightly rough.
I had to have it for the collection and what a great bottle one of the most original designs out there.

It's a very warm fragrance, i'd use it for winter. Some citrus on top notes, which fades quickly into a blast of lavender, mint and some kind of herbal notes above all, maybe too heavy for me. Longevity and projection are not bad.
I would give this a 6 out of 10, not for me but it`s a very sophisticated scent!

Mmmmmmm... Seductive & Oriental
If I compare the opening stage with the dry down of this one, it's hard to believe that it's one and the same fragrance.
I love the fresh opening with the bergamot and mandarine with a touch of mint.
Soon the cardamom comes to the surface releasing it's aromatic, spicy aspects.
As it dries down I would say there has to be vanilla/tonka, and/or benzoin in the basenotes, because it gets kinda warm and sweet on my skin. But since these are not part of the composition I assume that it's the almond and amber creating this aura on my skin.
Sillage is soft but noticeable and longevity moderate.

This perfume has a great smell, but and there is a big but, it doesnt last more than 1-2 hours, so you only can smell whats left of it on your hand and that it. Like a cheap perfume, i bought it blind and now i'm sorry, if it doesnt last it is not worth the money

Well, well...fresh, fresh, fresh.

This has none of the narcotic qualities of the original Hypnose for women, and thus I can't quite understand why it's even sharing the name, but however...

The opening is bursting with citrusy freshness, delicately spiced with cardamom. The lavender adds a clean, slightly powdery quality to the soft amber and patchouli drydown, which lasts about 3 hours and has moderate projection.

I must say, of the many amber and lavender combinations I've smelled (including those in lines such as Jo Malone and Acqua Di Parma), this is probably the most delicate. I wouldn't call it hynoptic, but it's certainly clean, sheer and sophisticated. Would be great for a guy 25+.

To my nose, Hypnose Homme is about lavender and cardamom, eventually with a little hint of amber. I rarely smell anything else, to be honest. But I don't think it's bad...

Actually, I have one thing which smell reminds me of this perfume. It's a smell of drying hay, don't know why :)

I'd say it's one of the most unique perfumes that I've ever met. But I would classify it as unisex, not a men fragrance :)

It lasts on me about 10 hours with 3 sprays. Sillage is above average.

After this, I started to look around for more Roucel's fragrances. If all smell so interesting like Lancome Hypnose, I definitely need to check them out!

I just bought this fragrance.And I must say this is a beautifully crafted fragrance.The opening and the drydown are amazing and I can't help smelling my hand every few minutes.However I think it's the Patchouli that I get towards the end of hypnose that gives me this very moldy kind of old attic smell which i am not a very huge fan off, but still appreciate it as part of the fragrance.Nonetheless still a awesome fragrance.I think anyone can wear this.I am a 20 year old guy btw.I dont think hypnose should be just for the older gentleman.Anyone who loves the notes should wear it.A definite buy.

Spicy! You like mexicain food? Salsa? You will like hypnose :p The first thing that come in my mind when i think about that fragrance is spicy, but in a good way! Not safe for blind buy, IMO, because you need to be into that kind of scent to appreciate it. Again, i think it can be use as a night fragrance all year around, because it is not to strong for summer night, i would even said that it is lacking in longevity and projection...the spices bring a warm side to this fragrance, so mayble it is better on cold time like autum and winter. It last for about 3-4 hours on my skin, and have maximum arm lenght projection, and just in the first hour before fainting and guetting close to skin. I wouln t use this for casual or office, because of the spice that can be annoying for some...it is difficult to find, even on the internet, so if you like that kind of scent, you might want to get your hands on this! My score is:

Smell: 7,5/10. Spicy, spicy, spicy ( did i tell it was spicy?). Good, but you need to be into this.
Longevity: 3/5. 3 to 4 hour, lacking for clubbing IMO, but good for diner or other night out.
Projection: 3/5. A little bit weak here too.
Versatility: 3/5. Mainly for night out, the only exeption I see is clubbing, because it lack in longevity and projection...
Overall: 16,5/25. Again, good for someone who is into that kind of scent, try it first, i wouln t blind buy.

First bought this perfume when I was 15-16 years old, always have one in stock. It's a very fine luxurious almost leather like fragrance. Not that typical patchouli warmth to it. Sillage is very pleasant, not too noticable for others unless nearby. Projection about 6-8 hours. Wish it was available in a bigger size, now 75ml is the largest.

Love it! Smell very good, lot of compliment while wearing it, but it seem to have a small longevity, since i am usualy unable to detect it after about 4 hours...also, i notice that mine is more yellow clear than the one in the picture...did they reformulated it or something or it is normal?

Very spicy head note to me, but i like it :)

I love it!! It starts out zesty with citrusses dominating the palette. Rather Generic opening but nevertheless refreshing and enjoyable. The drydown is where the magic begins. Here, the cardamom litterally spices things up. Not like spicebomb spicy but rather like a much much softer version. In this composition, every element fits perfectly and the way the cardamom/patchouli/amber notes play together is really a delight to smell!

Overall, Hypnose is a very sexy scent, Ideal for the nightlife and if you're single.

It is longlasting, at least enough to get you through the night, and projects nicely!!

This could be like an extra light 1 million and a more musky le male. Very sexy, and personal says my lady. My problem is the sillage 3/10, unless you hugging me or in my personal space one cant smell it much. Longevity poor 4 hours in the cold and a little less in a warm sunny day. Therefore night time perfume to me. So in comparison to my paco rabanne 1973 pour homme on longevity 4/10. But it oozs serious female attention (we they can smile it).

I dont feel its an old smell or for senior audience 30+, nor a suit and tie perfume. Bt a semi formal kinda data night feel

I used to love this fragrance and everybody around me too. I thus bought another bottle of it a few weeks ago. I thought the liquid was more yellow than usual and my friends said the same. I put some for a few days but noticed that it smelled less and less good. My friends noticed that it smelled less too. I went to several stores and noticed that it was the same bottle each time with a weak smell. I thus concluded that Lancome certainly changed the formula of the fragrance... anyone noticed the same?

A lady at a mall kiosk let me try this. It smelled so offensively and I couldnt wash it off my skin. Judging by her trying to sell me a HUGE bottle "half price" Im guessing it was a fake. I would love to smell the real deal. I hear good things. I dont think its supposed to smell of cat urine and alcohol?

Can't believe I haven't reviewed this already. This is now one of my two go-to scents (out of more than 30 bottles) with the other being Pure Havane. Something about this and other amber based fragrances are so alluring and seductive to me, and I have decided amber is my favourite fragrance note, it does wonders on me.

On my skin, this becomes wonderful throughout the whole time this is on. It is EASILY one of the best fragrances I have ever owned.

Longevity is fab, I get anything from 7 hours up.
Projection/Sillage is amazing, it can fill my whole room and people know I am around or know I was there/walk past them. Like I say, on my skin, amber based frags seems to do wonders, your mileage may vary, but it is at least worth a try in my eyes.

This is a very gentle, balanced blend. I've never encountered a lavender/gourmand scent this soft. It smells nice but some (those used to spraying ten times with A*Men, for example) will view this as weak. So, it's not for the party and club scene. On the other hand, I doubt it will offend anyone and could be used for just about any occasion that doesn't require strength, though I assume the idea was that this would be a "romantic" fragrance. It doesn't smell "synthetic" to me and it's got enough dynamism to keep it from getting boring. A fruity/spicy accord persists for a long time. I'll try it again and update, because I find that the second wearing usually tells me everything I need to know about a fragrance.

I really believe that this frag is better on women than men. It has something very feminine in it that I can't quite place my finger on. Just suffice to say, I've taken it from my husband for my own enjoyment.

Edit: I now know why this scent seems slightly feminine or unisex to me. It reminds me of going to the spa at the resorts in Mexico that we have a vacation membership with. I believe it is the lavender and the mint with a bit of citrus that makes me think of those experiences.

As others have mentioned it does not have very loud sillage, and the longevity is just okay. It lasts longer on me, than on my husband, probably due to my oily skin, and his dry skin.

Beautiful opening notes - like a warm amber sweet offering, alas after approximately 45 minutes it quickly degenerates into a synthetic overkill of patchouli - I personally find this element particularly hard-going, alas I had similar trouble with 'Spice Bomb' by V&R.

I wouldnt say its similar to Fahrenheit but it has the same subtle mandarin scent.
You can fully understand the name after the first spray, the first couple of minutes are absolutely hypnotizing.
If you are looking for a signature scent, maybe this is not for you. Its not versatile at all, but perfect for nights or cold weather, unfortunately its too cloying in the heat.
Beware, this is very heavy on amber, if you dont like it, this will be a nightmare for you after 7-8 hours because in the last phase of the scent almost every other note dies out leaving the sweet amber alone.

I love this fragrance and I just bought a new Hypnôse Homme deodorant spray today. Apparently it has been discontinued so they sell off the line pretty inexpensive now. I love the lavender and talc scent I get out of this. Even though they are not listed as ingredients in it. It's in fact quite sophisticated overall. Just too bad all my faves have been discontinued. Same with Tokyo by Kenzo, Horizon by Guy Laroche, Gucci Rush for men etc.

A romantic, classy, warm and sensous perfume which is lovely but does not last or project...

I applied 6 heavy sprays

0 - 1.5 hours - 1 foot projection. Scent is class. This is so romantic, it should have been the perfume of the Jack of Hearts. Warm and intimate, soft yet strong, little like perfume syrup without too much sweentess. I imagine a man using this after he has fallen in love with a special partner and that honeymoon of love and fantasy period...it really is special. (Though there is a minor ingredient which I can faintly detect which is not too nice, but to focus on this would be picky..) Lovely..Ages 30-50

1.5 hours - 3 hours. Close to skin, 3 inch projection at best. Linear scent

3-5 hours. Close to skin, no projection. Shame it cannot stay any longer

They should bring out an EDP and then I reckon this scent would be floating around Windsor Castle for years to come..

Good

Hypnose Homme is mostly sweet amber and oranges to my nose. I'm unfortunately not experiencing the spices and rich green accords like everyone else. While I'm not blown away by the scent, I'm not hugely disappointed either.

The scent is pleasant enough with a smooth, resinous feel, but it fails to move me in any way. The opening actually turned me off at first with a strong burst of synthetic lavender and bergamot burning my nose hairs.

The heart was much more settled with a rich ambery-ness, complimented with a touch of mint leaves. The composition remains quite linear from here on out. For some reason this fragrance gives me a headache after a while, so I quickly removed this fragrance from the 'potential gifts for boyfriend' list.

It has the ability to be quite sensual and alluring at times, especially when worn during the colder seasons or out on the town. On some men I don't doubt it could smell devastatingly sexy, but for me it fizzles rather than sizzles.

I love this perfume.
It has a sweet smell in the beginning, which will become more blurred over time.
The longevity and projection are both good.
It has similarities with Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin, but I can guarantee that this is much better.
Best of all in this perfume is the bottle....absolutely spectacular.
Not one of my favorites, but it is a good perfume.

It's openning with citrus-flavored and mint, cardamom is composing this. This is really noticeable in 20-25 minutes.

After half an hour comes in lavender. It's very dominant. Who don't like lavender, not be fooled by the opening and don't buy this scent. =)

Closing smells typical amber-patchouli mixture.

Results:

You can use this perfume on special occasions or formal situations. I would recommend you to wear with suits. Because this is, scent of a complete gentleman.

The only bad side is monotonous leading of lavander.

The base notes in this fragrance are striking and elegant, especially in the dry down. All the notes are harmoniously blended and not too densely textured. It is a very agreeable and completely warm and affable scent, and it seems suitable for almost any occasion. Some have characterized this as "chemical" smelling, but I do not detect any 'synthetic' characteristic at all. It has a refined and delicious sillage.

This fragrance has a dominant opening of lavender, followed by a very soft bergamot. And so this combination continues to the end without major changes.

Finally, a very linear fragrance, safe and easy to use. Pleasant aroma, but not a big deal. My thumbs down will focus on longevity. 3 ~ 4 hours after application and virtually disappeared from the skin.

I had this a few years back and promptly sold. I was reading some of the positive reviews on here and thinking how wrong they were...until I was going past the lancome stand and decded t o give it another go. How RIGHT they were and what an idiot I was for getting rid of it. It is fantastic. It lasts forever and dries down to hay-like patchouli amber which gives the scent a sweet yet masculine feel. Well done Mr Roucel.

I was very surprised when I first smelled it. I had the impression of smelling something very classy, but modern and youth. Something very fresh at the beginning but with some warmness in the background. It has certain ambiguity (not in a sexual way, but in the field of "temperature" if you know what I mean). It's like the clash of heat vs cold, issue that I remember to have had with TL pour Lui by Ted Lapidus. Then, I saw the creator's name and, surprise surprise, Maurice Roucel!. This man is a genius in creating sweet but fresh scents but in a way that your nose turns crazy because of that "clash" of cold/sweet accords (Rochas Man is another example).
In this case, Hypnôse starts with a potent mixture of fresh mint, cardamom and lavender (a very potent and realistic lavender)that creates this cold/warm stage. The initial squirt of this juice is pure class. In some points it's very similar to the opening of Yves Saint Laurent's La Nuit de L'Homme, but less sweet and more refined (maybe, the cardamom mixed with some citrus and lavender reminds me a little bit of the aura of La Nuit de L'Homme)
Then, in the middle, you got more sweet lavender but with the addition of patchouli,some woody notes (sandalwood)and a bit of spices (maybe pepper). This prominent "sandalwood-lavender-patchouli" triumvirate is very pleasant and classy and stays a long way (5-6 hours).
In the drydown (after 6 hours), the lavender fades almost completely and you got a beautiful, creamy and seductive base of amber, sandalwood and more patchouli. This finale reminds me a little bit of the drydown of TL pour Lui by Ted Lapidus (same patchouli-sandalwood-amber but without the vanilla). Amazing end of this olfatory experience.
Recommended for night dinners or classy events. Not for clubbing because of the moderate projection.

Projection and sillage: Both moderate but charming.
Longevity: I get 8 plus hours.

First off Fragrantica need to get the perfume pyramid right because the main note in this scent is LAVENDER!

When I first but on this scent it seemed cloying put think I may have sprayed it too close to the skin. Second time it was much better. In summary this is a dark seductive, sweet, spicy, lavender scent. Initially the first couple of minutes I smell fresh mint and a touch of citrus orange.

After 15mins the the mint fades quickly and becomes more 'herbal' in the background. Then the scent quickly becomes spicy and sweet (but not gourmand) due to the cardamom and amber kicking in, which surrounds the main note of lavender. The lavender is a quality smell and with the patchouli gives it a slight 'muddy' vibe.

Towards the end the sensual and seductive spice of the cardamom and amber tail off to become a close comforting musk.

The main thing with this scent is that you keep wanting to sniff it so definitely draws you in!!(must be the same for the women) this is a very interesting scent which I neither love or hate but will definitely bring people in close as they will keep wanting to sniff you!

I'm doubtful about this perfume. Hypnôse is an aromatic fresh opener with ordinary combination of citrus/mint. The following is warm and aromatically amber and cardamom. Everything is just fine here but what makes me firm about this perfume is its slight type of faintness. Hypnôse is like a normal perfume, warm, spicy, safe and inoffensive and somehow sophisticated but seems conservative. Like a man who tends to wear strong and iconic perfume but fears cause think every few steps out tends to offensive theme and lose compliments. This coward manner irritates me but the scent itself is great.
On the other hand, the bottle itself is great, decorative and well-designed. But when we talk about application it's not practical.

First expression on this cologne was musculine scent..sweetness is on the side in this. but the dry down is the best part after wearing for couple of hours youll smell light sweet without the musculine smell.i love the bottle and the trigger of spray is very loose one burst of spray is alot. 2 spray is good enought for me..longevity and projection is good...but i still love it..

This is a fabulous scent for a confident, sensual man in his late 20s to late 30s.

It's spicy, mysterious, complex, slightly sweet and very sexy. It's not too powerful or projecting, but it lasts quite well on my skin. The wood and spice give it a strong masculine edge, but the mild fruity sweetness and lavender round out the fragrance with a feminine flare. I believe that play between the two is what suggests sensuality in this fragrance.

As has been mentioned, it's decidedly best as an evening fragrance, and I can highly recommended the deodorant to accompany it.

It's a really nice addition to your collection, boys.

Also, it has to be said that the bottle is badass.

Hypnôse is so underrated! Each time that I wear it I get loads of compliments. It's perfect for a night out. It's sweet, woody, smooth, musky and elegant. If you don't like sweet scents, pass on this one. However, if you like sweet scents, you need to own this! I would recommend to the 25 and up crowd, but could really be pulled off by anyone confident enough.

Hypnose Homme definitely has the Roucel's hallmark (bitter-sweet / sweet-sweet / warm-fresh / musky drydown). The problem is that it's like he has axplained his "vision" to a young, clumsy and inexpert apprentice in charge of composing this fragrance. I love Mourice Roucel but this time he failed! Crude!

This is pretty nice.
It's elegant, sharp, bitter and smooth at the same time.
Mysterious
It almost gives me a coco-nutty feel, without smelling just like it.

It is very strong and complicated. It fits my personality[I'm not strong, but I'm comlicated ;)]. The smell can not be ignored. I've recieved compliments, but I've heard the strength can bother some people. Just be wise and find a good situation for wearing it. I've worn it at nights and parties. Overall I like it alot, and while colognes don't usually last a long time on my skin, this does.

I really like it, it's very complex and rich. But unfortunatelly it feels like an "older" fragrance (30 +). So it doesn't fit me that well (i'm 23). Actually i'm looking for some perfume as powerful and strong as Hypnose without being so overwhelming as 212 Sexy or One Million (something that works at a club). Sugestions?

I am not sure what to think about this one yet, but I don't hate it for sure. To me, it's sweet and slightly fruity, but it's not fruity sweet. I don't know. Its sweetness is like Le Male, Rochas Man, or 212. I don't smell anything minty here but I get some spices. It definitely has an oriental/earthy feel. It's sensual and taste-specific scent and could be good for date night or any special occasion.

Great opening, sweet fragrant for all days and night but it's longevity is a problem. So, it is suitable for parties, not for office

As a general lover of sweet and woodsy fragrance, this fragrance does not sit well with my chemistry. It is very cloying on me and stinks to high heaven with two sprays. It is too sweet on me and almost floral with heavy lavender scent.
I gave this away to my dad and it smells great on him.

if you can't stand Le Male or 212 Sexy, Hypnose is a nice alternative and won't intoxicate the ones around you or choke you for that matter! 2 thumbs up!

This fragrance pretends to be a classic: One must admit that the nice design of the bottle, the name as well as the first impression of the scent itself make you wonder whether this has been around for years already.

But after a couple of minutes things go down. This is no classic, but rather an uninspired copy of Calvin Klein's Obsession. Considering that it comes 20 years late, this one ultimately loses favour in every respect.

Girl at Duty Free Counter made me buy this after i had sampled many. Never really got my nose around this one and did not know what to expect. First time I wore it I had people asking me what i was wearing. Initial and Second notes are great but the dry down is simply fantastic. Lasts a long time. Great during Winter months, even better during summer.

An unimaginative name and a bottle design that, one guesses, was meant as traditional-cum-subversive' . . .
This is as elegant as wearing a tuxedo to a supermarket.

The kind of smell that hypnotizes. why? because of its mystery and charm. It's sexy and stylish, it's cuddling and exciting at the same time. I feel powerful and overtaken at the same time when I'm wearing this.

A nicely-tailored, warm fragrance - similar to many others, & yet distinctive. Refined, smart & well-blended - as Perfumaniac says "soft yet bracing". This, indeed, makes it very metrosexual (spot on, Chatnoir) & yet assured.

Incredibly warm & smooth, the citrus notes are fleeting leaving only a delicate squeeze of weak orange juice behind. The patchouli is tame, the cardamom is sweetened by vanilla & the rest of the amber-blend is very herbal (but not at all in a green-herbal way...all the corners are rounded off & buffed to a rich shine here).

I also get a scent-impression of the best quality leather, it mixes so well with the warmth of my skin that it is almost like my body's own animal scent. I imagine this would be very inviting on a man.

Good sillage & lasting power with a woody-amber dry down. Delicious! A winter treat.

It would make a great gift fragrance as I can't see anyone having an aversion to it: understated, but not to be underestimated.

It is the most mysterious smell i have ever met. I dont know if i like it or not, but cant stop myself smelling my wrist. It is very well refined that i cant distinguish any of the ingredients, i smell only the whole composition.
Very good sillage and long lasting.
Somehow reminds me lolita lempicka au masculin and antidote by viktor & rolf.
I think it really hypnoses.

I am Brasilian. This perfume is wonderful. Already the first time I used, I received several compliments. I have several scents, such as Jean Paul Guautier, Joop Homme, Versace Homme, Burberry London, Diesel Fuel for life, Usher, Eternity, Boucheron Pour Homme, but with certainty, Hypnôse Homme is one of the best. I recomend with praise! It is a sweet perfume in the right measure. Very masculine and super nice. Its setting is excellent. If you want to impress, use Hypnôse Homme.

Patchouli! That's largely what I smell here. I think from a distance the patchouli would not be so noticeable, but lift it to your wrist and you'll be blown away by it. I must say though, that I am biased, as I don't care for patchouli. If you like it then you'll definitely like this because it's nicely put together.

The whole house was smelling on it before i even open the box - it' s oriental, spicy, warm,woody scent. I can't say i like it very much but i find it very suitable for a night out, for club.. It reminds me a bit to CH 212 Sexy man but this is more hypnotic, mysterious.

A much more complex scent than its notes would indicate. Spicy, woody, and truly hypnotic, I love this on my husband. It smells very "metro" and refined. I like that this works equally well dressed up or dressed down.

A musterious fragrance that evokes modernity and fascination with its luxurious and masculine packaging. A symbol of modernity and originality that will reveal your bewitching power of seduction! A musky amber sensuality as base notes, a green aromatic floral signature in the heart notes and a spicy green freshnesss head notes.
Constructed so as to deliberately mix the bracing yet soft effects of a fougere (bergamot, lavender, coumarin, geranium, oakmoss...) and the warm deeper effects of an oriental. The perfume has notes of mint, bergamot, calabrian mandarin, chinese cardamom seed, essence of provençal lavender, amber, musk, and essence of indonesian patchouli.

It reminds me of Fahrenheit in the beginning, although they belong to different groups.
And although Hypnose seems to be a far simpler fragrance, I like it much better.
It's sweet in the beginning, but in a 'smart' way. Definitely, the opening is more interesting than the heart and the drydown. It fades quickly, turning delicate and not so exceptional, but still very pleasant.
I think it can be worn as a day fragrance in autumn/winter season by a man who has a strong, dominant position at work/in a group.

I agree with afraafra that it's longevity isn't very good. But, overall, Hypnose is just charming!
