Don't get the hype
by Stephanie on Dec 17, 2016
This is just another vanilla scent for me - nothing interesting or complex about it to make it redeeming or "addicting" in my eyes. I know a lot of people like this, but I'm not sure why. Hypnotic Poison is a much better vanilla scent - much more beguiling and spicy.

Peppery with great longevity. Nice floral backdrop. I like it. And GREAT melo-dramatic name!

I'm not in love with this perfume. This is just a very spicy vanilla. If you do ike the scent, it will last 12 hours if you want it too or not

It really does remind me of Michaels and Home Depot. Its too much a peppery baby powder smell. I was hoping the pepper would go away but my skin just soaked it up and projected nothing but the pepper. Thank god I didn't buy a full bottle of this.
Michael's and Home Depot

This scent really reminds me of Michael's craft stores and the Home Depot garden section. It smells like it has cinnamon (Michael's) and lily (Home Depot). This is very strong and good quality, but my boyfriend didn't like it on me. He thought it smelled "old lady." I personally think it's sexy, and I'll wear it when I'm a bit older.

Addict starts with a citrusy vanilla; when the citrus accord vanishes the orange blossom appears briefly, and then the vanilla marries jasmine, and lasts forever. It has excellent sillage and longevity. It is an assertive floral, but unlikely to offend anyone. It is sweet, although not cloying. You might want to celebrate this marriage of jasmine and vanilla. It has an unexpected charm.

Ok I see what the hype is about. This is a beautiful scent. Very dramatic, vanilla into patchouli maybe? Lasts for hours once applied.
Powdery, but strong performance

I got Addict for a relative for Christmas. It smells very powdery in the drydown, but it lasts quite a while, and projects well. This is one of those fragrances that has stronger sillage than you would expect. You might think it's not projecting that far when you wear it, but you will occasionally get whiffs of it in passing. I was sometimes able to pick up on it from across the room. That's on a relative who, like me, usually gets weak projection from most perfumes. She liked it!

Soft and powdery. Feminine and lasts too.

I read so many reviews on other sites about how everyone loves this perfume. I think it smells good, but not amazing. Just like expensive vanilla with a little darker qualities. I'm in my early 30s and i think it would fit better with someone a little more mature. It could just be the chemistry with my skin though. After I had worn it for about 30 minutes, two of my friends said it smelled really powdery. One liked it a lot, one hated it. I liked it more than hated it, but just thought it was nothing that great. However, the longevity was quite impressive!
Spicy Vanilla Perfection.

Rich & creamy vanilla with a spicy citrus punch. Delectable, sensuous, warm.. with a bit of a dark, seductive quality. Though it only has a few notes, it seems like a much more complex scent. Incredible longevity, as well.
