Paco Rabanne Invictus Review

Author: Beth Cox August 1st, 2013

Invictus title IMG

Paco Rabanne had phenomenal success when they launched their fragrance, 1 Million in 2008. Since its launch, it’s managed to sell 23 million bottles in a record amount of time. Now that’s impressive.

 

So what were Paco Rabanne’s first thoughts when it came to designing their newest fragrance, entitled Invictus?

 

The new scent is a big change from 1 Million’s warm amber musk, which was clearly a big hit with Paco Rabanne followers. Invictus is the new ‘hero’ scent from the brand which is accompanied by a very sexy TV advert. Paco Rabanne have pulled out all the stops to ensure that Invictus is envisaged as the new essential scent for men. So we’re here to tell you just why Invictus is thatΒ good.

 

First of all, can we please take a minute to talk about the God-like packaging? You need to award yourself with Invictus, if not for the scent, then solely for the bottle. The fragrance is housed in a Trophy-like case; symbolic of strength and champions. The almost mythical packaging is modeled by Australian Rugby League Player, Nick Youngquest who we agree is the most suitable candidate for a fragrance of this caliber. Sportsmanship is at the root of this scent which focuses on turning the modern day man into a gladiator.

But what about the scent itself? We are quick to assume that sport inspired fragrances have a tendency to focus on extreme levels of freshness and cleanliness, which is good in perspective but sometimes can be a little overpowering and dare we say, stereotypical. Invictus is unique in the sense that when you spray it, you’re immediately met with a sense of freshness. Notes of grapefruit, spice and metal fuse together to ensnare the senses and pull you in, leaving you feeling victorious; a winner. Invictus has a heart of aromatic bay leaf and hedione jasmine which is superbly rounded off with base of guaiac wood, patchouli, oak moss and ambergris.

    I was sent this a few weeks back and I absolutely adore it. I have to be hsnoet, I’d never smelt the fragrance before which is shameful as I know, like Aramis, it’s a staple men’s scent. It’s just so damn sexy.

  • First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question
    which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how
    you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?
    Cheers!

    My partner and I stumbled over here coming from a different web address and thought I may as well check things out.

    I like what I see so i am just following you.

  • I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your blog.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me
    to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your
    theme? Exceptional work!

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and
    screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

      Echo. Givenchy Gentleman, this, and actually, Kouros: all betuaiful. I think there is something almost innocent about this perfume. So GOOD if you know what I mean. The other day I ALMOST wore it; couldn’t quite decide what I wanted from the closets and instead went for something totally different Paco Rabanne’s Metal, which somehow suits me better these days. However, my vintage bottle of Pour Homme is precious, and when I do wear it I feel sage and nostalgic. Nice review.

  • What’s Going down i’m new to this, I stumbled upon this I’ve found It positively helpful and it has aided
    me out loads. I’m hoping to contribute & help other users like
    its helped me. Great job.
