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.
