The fashion house Raban made its way to the hearts of the public by creating extraordinary things. Nobody is surprised with plastic earrings now, but in the early 1960s it was a real explosion. Success pushed the family from Spain to continue in the same vein. Clothing made from such non-trivial materials as pens, paper and even CDs appeared on the fashion market. The representative of the family, Paco Raban, decided to start creating perfumes, but not to deviate from the accepted concept. The first pancake was a female flavor, released in nineteen sixty-ninth year. But already in 1973, men's perfumes saw the light, turning ideas of that time about how a real macho should smell. Paco Rabanin continues to experiment and shock. And in this article we will look at one of his amazing creations - the fragrance Invictus Paco Rabanne. What do the reviews say about him?
Paco Rabanne likes to break stereotypes. Who said that floral fragrance is not for men? And the first spirits of 1973 confirmed that the representatives of the stronger sex are not averse to feeling it on themselves. Add a few woody notes to a bouquet of flowers - and the enchanting composition is ready. But Paco Rabanne was not going to stop there. In the perfumery laboratory of the fashion house almost every year amazing aromas are born. Paco Rabanne Invictus - men's perfume, which were born in 2013. The creators of the fragrance were the pleiad of famous perfumers: Veronica Nyberg, Olivier Polge, Ann Flipo, Dominique Ropion. They were inspired by the will to win inherent in yachtsmen (and other athletes). Therefore, we set out to enclose in the vial the aroma of a salty sea breeze, the power of the ocean surf, the freshness of the inflated sail of the wind. Did they succeed?
Perfume pyramid Invictus Paco Rabanne
To say that this smell is aquatic is to say nothing. The composition is more complex, woven from both floral and woody notes. Of course, a fresh sea breeze soars over it all, in which the salty aftertaste is heard. It is palpable from the very first chords. But in the top notes, the breath of the ocean is complemented by citrus fruits: grapefruit, mandarin, yuzu, whose fresh sharpness is softened slightly with pink pepper. In the heart of the fragrance we unexpectedly find feminine jasmine. Paco Raban knows how to surprise! But the femininity of the white flower is balanced by the classic men's fragrances: bay leaves and violet greens. The ocean continues to sound further. But the surf faces a dense obstacle. These are woody smells - guayak, oak moss, amber, which are mixed with shades of patchouli and the warmth of gray amber.
Perfume Pyramid: Consumer Opinion
So the composition is described by its creators themselves. And what do consumers say about this? Aromatic pyramid Paco Rabanne Invictus reviews called exciting and passionate, strong and sometimes even annoying - as the Spanish caballero, caring for the lady of the heart. In the top notes, according to the reviews, sea freshness dominates with citrus playing like champagne. The heart of this fragrance is twofold, like Janus. Animal sensuality and aristocratic restraint of a member of an elite sports club get along in it. And somewhere in the depths, feminine dreaminess lurked - another reminder that a man is an androgyne. The charming magnetism of amber-woody notes creates an unforgettable and extraordinary plume.
Who is the fragrance for?
In this matter, both creators and consumers are unanimous. Invictus Paco Rabanne perfumes are intended for men of extraordinary, strong in body and spirit, not hesitating to show their individuality. Energy and perseverance, however, do not turn into swagger and vulgarity. This man is not afraid of difficulties and is not accustomed to retreat. But he, by virtue of his aristocratic upbringing, is moderately tactful to impose. In fair play, this athlete always wins. He is confident in himself and strives for victory. Reviews claim that the fragrance does not suit everyone. A pumped up press of a model of eau de toilette subtly hints at this. On the “nerds” and “laborers” the smell will be inappropriate. Expensive evening dress is also an inappropriate frame. Fresh toilet water is good in spring and especially in summer. A t-shirt, a yachtsman's jacket and similar clothes suit her.
Bottle of perfume
On the one for whom the fragrance was created, hints at its design. The bottle of Invictus Paco Rabanne eau de toilette is styled as a cup, which is handed to the winner after sports. This is the concept of flavor. The collision of the powerful freshness of the ocean with the warmth of wood and spices, citrus splashes and the quiet sound of laurel and violet, muscularity and femininity - aren't these contrasts a part of our life? But what is defeated here is our traditional notion of “men's fragrances”. Paco Raban's “Invictus” will single out its owner from the crowd of ordinary-cologne-scented cologne. This is the perfume of a true leader. But are you ready to take the cup? For this, audacity and the will to win must be in your blood.
