Nice fragrance. Clean and fresh opening with a fizzy citrus and spices. I'm picking up a note that reminds me of something I've smelled in Halston's Z-14...makes me wonder what woods are going on in Paco Rabanne Pour Homme. I'll have to check out the notes to see. I'm enjoying this one so far.
It smells like Irish Spring original soap with just a hint of honey,musk,and florals.I like Irish Spring and as a matter of fact use that brand...but at about $40 a bottle?it seriously lacks imagination.Pierre Cardin I could see a popular cologne in the 70's...not Paco Rabanne.This cologne seems like what someone would splash on after doing some takes on an adult film in the 70's and call it a wrap.Hey if you smelled purely like soap who'd know you didn't shower afterwards.
A classic barbershop but with extra soap.
Unfortunately, this has been rendered useless by reformulations.
Buy the vintage.
When you want the soapy greenery of a classic giant like Nobile but without the smoky decadence and finely tailored formality, you need Paco! This is singing praise of rosemary and moss, and it's cool, clean, semi-sweet, and fairly airy. Before this 'casual wear' herbal donned the three-piece suit and heralded the 80's it was a carefree, uncluttered affair. Unfortunately it hasn't aged well after reformulations, and it is now just a pleasant echo on the wind in its current form.
This is a soapy wonder. I have a decant of the original version, and I'm savoring it. It's soapy, leathery, and mossy.
