The mystery of Dior’s legendary forbidden fruit lives on in a magical, modern philter that blends femininity with boldness. Four contrasting facets – intoxicating bitter almond and carvi, opulent Sambac jasmine, mysterious Jacarandra and sensuous vanilla and musk– make for a compelling, bewitching fragrance fusion. Intoxicating and extravagant.
Indigenous to Sicily and southern Italy, almonds have been popular since the most ancient civilizations. Remains show that almonds were cultivated by the Assyrians and in ancient Persia. The fruit brings a touch of bitterness to the top note of Hypnotic Poison EDT.
The white vanilla flowers produce a fruit that ripens in 8 to 9 months. Vanilla beans are harvested just before they are ripe and undergo a ripening process for 34 months. Their fragrance develops and vanilla crystals form to unfold vanilla's sweet and spicy accords. This serene, sensual scent is featured as a base note in Hypnotic Poison EDT.
