Ultraviolet Man by Paco Rabanne, 2001
Rated #2089 in Fragrances
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.
synthetic but very well done, thats Ultraviolet. its rather spicy with slight earthy-amber. as the time goes this fragrance will goes into more and more earthy. its beautiful Paco which is not overtly sweet like the rest (and thanks for that!) definitely a compliment getting, I'm not really sure why but many girls (young one) seemed to like it! the longevity and projection is awesome. its fit a young guy who lives like Fast and Furious movie. badass guys
This is my signature scent. I have been using it since it's release around the year 2000. It's hard to describe. I'd call it a unique, fresh fragrance. It's still the best cologne I've worn to date.
I actually smelled this fragrance off a work colleague and couldn't for the life of me work out what it was. You can imagine my frustration. Having randomly sampled Ultraviolet by chance, i was amazed that I'd actually found it! This scent is unique, quite unlike anything else i've worn, and believe me i've worn a lot! It's mildly sweet, has a truly fantastic opening (fresh mint and candy floss??) is quite synthetic (but in a good way) has good longevity and it's projection is amazing. Any man wearing this will surely stand-out in today's sterile, aquatic fruity/sports fragrances era.
Greasy and disturbing. The scent starts as a kind of synthetic, mentholated, balsamic one with a rooty feel, and gets a transition towards a mossy, nutty bit creamy base where in my opinion prevail tonka bean, synthetic ambergris and honey. It has some reminiscences about kind of fragrances like Herrera 212 Sexy Men and a bit One million but this one is worse, one of the worst ever created. I find it too synthetic and fat. While the starting is acceptable with its aromatic, earthy, mentholated mark (liquid mint and organic vetiver), the drydown is off putting, too sweet and a bit rancid with a too pronouced nutty edible feel. Musks enhance the woodsy trait which assumes a milky temperament. Not for me. The longevity and the projection are more than good.
Synthetic and cold in charaachter but I think it's fabulous. Very contemporary and free, there is sort of unique vibe about it and it's not overworn at all. I don't like the bottle even though it fits the fragrance wich I, ironically, like! Longevity and projection are great. I understand why this might be tad bit off putting to people, and it's amber note is very strong and I agree quite synthetic, but I can't help it, I just like this juice and that's that.
Very Nice Minty Fragrance with sweetness but the only problem is Longevity! It doesnt hold for more than 2 hours. The projection depends upon how much u spray. u got to spray 10 heavy spray for good projection. Or else no one can smell what u wearing. I got no compliments. I dont know why Paco Rabanne didnt focus on the Longevity like One Million! I Like the smell but Longevity is very less. So mind it & go for it. Other wise the smell and all good. Its different.
a decent fragrance, a little sweet but not over the top, gives out a nice breeze, i liked it but wouldnt buy again
I like Paco scents buh..... Just received this today as a pressie and although I've had it on my list of want-to-try I would have thought it would be have been nicer tbh. Its nice and sweet smelling, the mint I can barely get, but on my skin it just doesnt seem strong enough, and promptly disappears doh! 2 good sprays on the chest and 1 on the wrist and barely an hour later I nearly snorted me arm clear off tryna get a whiff lol.. If it was stronger and had even 4 hours staying power on my skin I'd keep it, as it is Im gonna ask if it can be returned and give her a few options to swap for tbh. Close buh no ceegar Misturrr Rabanne ;-)
The first thing that pops into my head when I smell this is INCENSE. Or the smell of those esoteric stores. VERY synthetic and cheap smelling. Sillage and longevity are pathetic, even tough the scent can be a little too loud to the nose... And honestly, I don't see the 'sexy' side that people are saying in other reviews... Just keep in mind to NEVER buy this blind.
