Hypnotic Poison appears to have had a reformulation around 2006, then again in 2009 in a new bottle, it was also reformulated and repackaged in 2010.

The original version and the reformulation from 2006 and packaged in the matte red bottles with the "rubbery" coating, topped by a black cap and has a red collar. The Second reformulation in 2009 saw Hypnotic Poison housed in a glossy opaque red bottle without the rubber coating, it still has a black cap, but now sports a gold collar instead of the red. The current reformulation is housed in an opaque burgundy bottle with purple shading at the base, this bottle is topped with a deep purple cap and retains the gold collar of the previous edition.
