Reviews of Black XS

This was a shocker for me. IMO it has the feeling of synthetic candy. I picture this to be the scent that would go along with all those mdma parties: synthetic, bright overstimulation. It doesn't smell bad, that's why I give it a neutral rating. So if your thing is to take a pill and go raving this is the scent for you.

After I've tried and tested other scents... I have to say Black XS is not that bad after all...
It's not the best of Paco Rabanne.. but it is an acceptable scent

Starts out sweet and fruity, then dries down to sweet and powdery.

The opening lasts for an hour or two and then you get the powdery drydown for 5-6 hours. Seems best suited for casual wear and because of the sweetness, might be best in colder weather.

Salutation.

And now BLACK XS.it is one of the most interesting MODERN fragrances in my collection.it opens FRESH and SWEET like strawberry with cream!

The style is NICE but not in an innocent way.The scent is CHARMING,MASCULINE.it is so FRENCH.in my opinion is sweet without being cloying and spicy without giving you a headache.Truly i can sense cinnamon in middle notes.

Good for any age specially if you are around 30/35 years old.not quite everyday wear.Perfect for intimate mood in cold nights.Good sillage and longevity was around 8 hours on my skin.

It starts with delicious fruit smell, sour and sweet at the same time which reminds me of pineapple/kiwifruit. Longevity and projection is average. Scent itself doesn't morph too much after spray. It stays pleasant and it seems to mingle with skin's natural sourness. It is very easy to use and very approachable. It is almost surprising that it was marketed as men's perfume. Exactly same juice in feminine bottle can be sold as ladies' perfume as well.

I chose this for my husband who used Aramis for a year. Aramis is very assertive and strong perfume so that I wanted him to try light and playful one. He enjoyed it for about two months, and then he got tired of it. From Aramis to Black XS might prove to be too much of leap in terms of the complexity and depth. Now it is in my 14yo son's hand.
