A Paco Rabanne Fragrance Review for the 1 Million and Lady Million and so much more juicy stories and the winner of our October give-away! Read on!
|Us. Reminds me of Johnny and Kate
15 days. I’m doing a 15-day countdown for a personal milestone in my life. Have you ever felt being in a situation where you love something or someone so much but just like 2 different puzzle pieces from a single pattern, yet you were never made to fit together. Fire and sparks. Reminds me of the relationship Johnny Depp and Kate Moss. They were so in love, almost addicted to each other but they have to go their separate ways because instead of becoming better people they were becoming worse. Too bad they never got back together again except for this special shoot. *gasps* sexy. The 15-day wait would give a breather, time, a chance to start over for the beginning of something better. I feel lonely, but I hope this will pass.They also say that there is ecstasy in looking forward to something. Read on for my fragrance review.

The perfume was inspired by Paco Rabanne
‘s metallic fashion and created in cooperation with three famous noses for perfumes, Christophe Raynaud
, Olivier Pescheux
and Michel Girard
, who mixed this year’s edition from the notes of sparkling grapefruit, red orange, mint, rose, cinnamon, spices, blond leather, blond wood, patchouli and amber. (from fragantica.com)
What I Think: It’s hard for me to find a fragrance for men that I like, most are too strong! Some are too feminine. This one is just right, I love the warm amber with wood, and I also smell hints of chocolate even if it was not listed as an ingredient. Yummy man scent!
, Béatrice Piquet and Dominque Ropion have all created scents for some of the biggest names in perfumery. But what path did they take to create Lady Million
? “It was clear that this perfume had to be as charismatic as 1 Million, with as strong a signature, yet without a direct olfactory link. The Lady Million
woman is dazzling, always seductive. This ‘playful’ aspect inspired us immensely. Lady Million
is fresh, floral and woody, like a nectar of voluptuous flowers, trailing delicately but still very present. Powerfully seductive, the sparkle of bitter orange with a touch of raspberry reveals the first breath. A burst of neroli follows, smooth and bright. But then the lethal weapon of heady orange blossom slips out of its sheath. Its narcotic sweetness bewitches and grabs all attention. Then, joining with Arabian jasmine underlined by gardenia, the blend soars into something more carnal, yet ever subtle. Now the obsessive pulsing of patchouli enters the fray, pacifying the honey with an addictive and terribly tempting sweetness. Amber spreads to become all enveloping, floating around the beauty, following each movement and offering its most beautiful facets”. (from fragrantica.com)
What I Think: Think of a rich lady, but someone more mature. A very rich lady wearing a lush fur coat riding a luxurious car. She smells of gold and leather but also pleasantly sweet, elegant. As much as I would love this scent, I could not. It is too mature for my liking and would suit ladies in their 40’s – 50’s. This is also a scent that should be worn during cold winter nights. It is not flexible enough and not romantic for my tastes. I hope Paco Rabanne releases a younger version of this fragrance *COUGH*
