Paco Rabanne presented his first fragrance, Calandre, in 1969. Meant for an active woman, it’s a cypress-heavy perfume that was considered revolutionary for its time. In 1973, he introduced his first men’s fragrance, Paco Rabanne pour homme, which was the first aromatic scent on the market. XS Pour Elle was introduced much later in 1995 as a soft floral, followed by his first unisex fragrance, Paco, in 1996, which was presented in a recyclable metal bottle.
Two years later, Paco Energy was created, and a year later, Ultraviolet perfume for women made its debut. The men’s version of Ultraviolet cologne rolled out in 2001. Other noted Paco Rabanne fragrances include Eau De Paco Rabanne Cologne, La Nuit Perfume for Women, Liquid Crystal Perfume, Liquid Metal Cologne, Metal Perfume, Paco Energy Body Lotion, Paco Energy Cologne, Paco Pour Elle, Paco Rabanne Sport, Paco Unisex, and Xs Extreme Girl.

I really enjoy it even if I find it doesn’t particularly fit my personality. It’s loud, very noticeable, sweet and salty with a heavy ambergris base. There’s a white floral breeze passing through the entire thing too. I think 1 Million Parfum could be unisex, but others think differently. My wife told me it’s her favorite of everything I’ve sampled, so there’s that. Very much a kind of “guilty pleasure” fragrance for me.

This is a fantastic perfume which smells spicy-fresh. Perfectly unisex, but leans masculine. It is great for “social” events and will really stand out from the crowd.
