Fate of the Fragrance:
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.
The many faces of Hypnotic Poison:
Beware of Fakes! Hypnotic Poison has been terribly faked. Here are some photos of a fake bottle and box that I had received in a large lot of Poison perfumes. I have found that the fake Hypnotic Poison boxes are imprinted with the same batch code "6F02" and the bottle has no batch code. Shown in comparison is my own bottle of genuine Hypnotic Poison.
