A sensorial and magnetic alchemy thought with Arabian Jasmine, Bitter Almond and musky Vanilla. To reinterpret this fragrance, Francois Demachy chooses a mixture licorice-star anise. Hypnotic Poison Elixir’s bottle has a lacquered surface in gradations of red, a deep, dense color that’s the eternal symbol of danger, desire and power.
The symbol of feminine softness, jasmine is one of the most commonly used flowers in perfumery. It is so delicate that it alone is a fragrance. Jasmine is used in the top note composition of Hypnotic Poison Elixir.
STAR ANISE LICORICE ACCORD
Star anise, also known as badian, is mainly found in China and Vietnam. An evergreen tree produces the seeds which are distilled to obtain the essence. It brings a fresh, acidic accent to the heart note of Hypnotic Poison Elixir. LICORICE ACCORD: A perennial plant with aromatic roots, licorice is indigenous to southern Europe. Licorice extract offers a gourmand spicy hint that reveals itself as the heart note of Hypnotic Poison Elixir.
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 Extrait.
