About Ultraviolet for Him / Ultraviolet Man

The newest Paco scent and the partner to the ladies Ultraviolet. The bottle is amazing: the spray is activated by a rubber trigger.
Ultraviolet contains notes of Moss, Honey, Tonka Bean, Musk and Amber. The fragrance is reminiscent of Xeryus Rouge and Minotaure.

Reviews of Ultraviolet for Him / Ultraviolet Man

When I saw the presentation, I thought it was going to be a violet bomb, turns out to be a sort of weird airy sweet concoction. There are moments I tolerate, but overall it's not very good at any one note. The only note I sort of like is the mint..this is just a hint tho and highly synthetic. This for me is an awful version of truefitt and hill's clubman, I'm not mad about that scent either.

Soft-sweet fragrance.

My boyfriend has this EDT, so I can write a bit on how this projects on others.

All and all, this is a fragrance that starts as green/fresh with a great opening, and it turns into sweet/synthetic. It leaves a very nice, soft, and pleasant skinscent. Longevity is quite good, and sillage is quite soft, which is a good thing for these type of fragrances.

I have worn this off and on for about 5 years. When I throw a few sprays on I wonder why I don't wear it more often. I find it to be a great amber that is on the sweet side but in no way cloying IMHO. Well blended but I do get a bit of the synthetics that others have mentioned but considering the price it is a winner. Enjoy!

Surely ULTRAVIOLET is not the best PACO RABANNE fragrance or a Masterpiece but It is a Valuable Fragrance than their price. Fresh yet Warm and Subtle. Sweet but not in a Cheap Way. Oriental, Addictive,Romantic and Not quite Masculine.

I bought This Fragrance for a Friend of mine and He received Many compliments Especially from Ladies. Yes This scents Irresistible for Most Ladies. I Like Amber in the top notes However this can be a Little Too sweet for me. Then The warm and Woody notes emerge and makes me feel Cozy.

This Mixture is A good Level of Sweetness and Aromas for me. If you don't Like Amber,this is not for you. It has a ROMANTIC Effect That makes it Suitable for INTIMATE use. Good for Office use too. I recommend it for AUTUMN. Totally If You are Looking for a fragrance that is not Unique This would be a Perfect choice but You Should try on Your skin before buying It.


Longevity?+4 hours on my skin.

Pump up guys in sportscars

Jacques Cavallier made a lot better ones.

I always keep away from these types of scents.
Chemical,synthetic,sweet,linear scent all the way, what you smell in the first seconds stays in later stage.(amber in top)
A dark evening scent pretending to be romantic in a macho kind a way.

But in my nose it is a cloying combo of spicenotes,vanilla and ambers.

Paco's Ultrared on the other side is superb!

This scent is for tanned bodybuilder type of guys who like to play loud pumping house music from their tuned up sportscars.

I guess its the granddaddy of 1 million...

There is always one guy wearing this when i go out on a night out.

For some reason, I always wanted Ultraviolet... don't ask why, I don't recall. However, I got this in some airport and it smells awful. It's incredibly synthetic, it's like metal on your skin and in your pores. there's nothing fresh about it.
