About Paco Energy

Very very citrus-y!

Paco Energy fragrance notes

Reviews of Paco Energy

More than decent classic accord of aromatic citrus and fresh woodiness (a plain powdery vetiver and "pencil shaving" cedarwood). Strong on grapefruit, Paco Energy is cool and kind of ostensibly incensey (a freshly dusty effect provided by juniper berries and woods with a dodgy hint of smokiness). Sharp floral notes come out at distance (it seems to detect geranium on the side of intenser romantic cyclamen). Projection is more than temperamental on my skin. Not bad.

The old bottles of this sitting around have lost whatever energy they had. Bottles only a few years old after discontinuation have turned into a very dull citrus. If the grapefruit others detect was indeed potent when if first came out, this would be a vibrant, fresh wearable cologne. I feel that this is why Paco Energy was discontinued: the formula went bad too quickly.

THe original plus grapefruit, smelled like tangerine to me. This is nice, I like it better than the 'dirty-CK One' smelling original Paco. It's not for everyone, but it is nice.

why did they discontinue this fragrance? It's a fragrance for teenagers! I love the very sweet smell.

I liked this unisex scent its very strong grapefruit notes against a powdery background.
Now I perceive it as an odd combination between something to volatile, and something too strong.
A shame that the pungent grapefruit notes fade to fast, while a too intoxicating, almost choking, scorching sweetness remains.

I was using it sometimes back in Summer of '98, and liked it very much then. Quite recently I re-tried it, my advice - SAVE YOUR MONEY. Energy is not even fresh by today standards, it's neither here nor there. Skip it.
