Invictus fragrance notes

Reviews of Invictus

Crude and horrendous, Invictus is easily the worst Paco Rabanne fragrance ever released. It's an utter mess of faux freshness (chemical citrus notes), a generic synthetic woody-ness , and a nauseating syrupy sweetness. If that sounds appealing to someone, they might enjoy this.

In my books this is an abomination. In case one has a bottle, it would perhaps be best reserved for situations when one wishes to break up with one's lover.

Utterly ridiculous.

INVICTUS smells good, performs great, and doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Admittedly, it is sweet and youthful, but it can be worn by both the young and the young at heart.

Scent: 8/10
Performance: 10/10
Sillage: 9/10
Season(s): Spring, Summer

Guys that do fragrance videos and own dozens and dozens of fragrances may hate this fragrance. Ladies, however, love this fragrance.

Right now i have to give this a neutral review. This is mainly because of the fact that i don't mind wearing this in the right mood/ occasion, but as my nose develops, i really long for a scent to develop and surprise me as it wears. This does none of that. As has veen noted by others, it is very difficult to actually pock individual notes out here. I know it's sweet and i do pick up that faint bubble gum, but it really is hard to tell what this smells like.

A very nice opening scent.In general However, the scent is also very demanding; it commands for attention. Can't be handled by every wearer.

I LOVE it. I dont understand the hate on fragrantica. Oh, it smells "synthetic"? That's your complaint? Dior Savauge is brash, harsh, cold, metallic and hugely synthetic, and terrible I might add with that cedar middle note, but everyone claims to love it. If Jonny Depp was modeling for Invictus, maybe people would like it more. Ignore the haters, this is a great fragrance with solid projection and longevity. Women love it.

Most of the time the most obvious answer is the right answer..invictus projects well, attracts lady's like bees to pollen and has great longivity, doesn't cost the earth and smells fresh and cute (slightly juvenile). Smells like bubble gum mixed with a bit of wood and fabric softner, like one millions cleaner cut brother. However although it creates a wonderful modern silage you do have to breath this in yourself for 7 hrs and somedays it can be nauseating so this is its draw back. Recommended for men between 16 and 30.
