XS Pour Homme by Paco Rabanne, 1993
love this juice, much better then the black ..a true gem!
I don´t know why this frag is so famous... Smells like a lot of cheap fragrances, and my girlfriend hates this smell, so... rate:1.5/5.0
That's a classic for me. Great smell, unique when released. Projection, sillage and lasting power are average. Also, smells exactly the same as Creed Himalaya but it costs 1/4 the price.
A starring role is played by mint, juniper berries, herbal notes and cedarwood. On this astringent and aromatic plane are located flowers as rose and geranium and fruits, in particular a neroli accord (orange, orange flowers and mandarine) that, on the side of flowers, imprints to the herbs that pungent, deep and almost edible temperament that features the fragrance itself. The base holds on the theme of the opening with its woodsy-musky bed civilized and softened by a touch of resin, an hint of vanilla or myrrh ( that balance the strong presence of aromatic herbs) and turned bold and masculine by a strong note of patchouli. The sandalwood sets structure and woody mildness perfectly linked with the mildness of amber and vanilla. This one is a masculine and versatile scent with a sporting temperament but more than decent for office and daily dynamic life. Impressive the projection.
Not unpleasant, but why bother since there are thousands of other perfumes just like it. Lack of originality is its main fault and just for that it gets my thumbs down.
In Cool Water style but somewhat "greener" and more "acrid". By saying adjectives green and acrid, I'm not being negative. This scent is conservative and formal. There is nothing sexy or excessive (XS=sex and excess) about this scent, even in terms of time when this scent was created and popular. Good quality scent, recognizable, and I think that it would suit me well considering the fact that women like this sort of fragrances on me. These are the times when the sweet juices are sold, and gosh this is not a sweet juice...not one bit. That is one of the reasons I'll add this one to my collection, not with a rushing pace, though.
I didnt have great expectations for this one and indeed..it's nothing mind blowing.. The opening is a little too crisp for my liking and the direction this takes while moving toward drydown a little uncertain.. Not too original, and not intriguing really, I was considering giving it a (generous) neutral just because it is not offensive to me and could be a safe buy for someone with unknown/undefined preferences...But then I thought..what do we need another fragrance without identity for..?
woody,floral musk scent.typical masculine scent of the ninenties- similar to jazz by YSL or chanel egoiste platinum.not too bad but nothing exciting,nothing stunning or dazzling.this is a common, average quite indifferent scent.A bit fresh, harsh,quite spicy and herbal- the ingredients are ok but the result is an imbalanced and edgy edt.I need to remark that a perfume is always a very personal perception of odors.If you look for a well balanced scent of this olfactory group try Carolina Herrera for men, encre noir by Lalique-they are far more exciting.nevertheless paco rabanne xs for men is better than the whole stuff that has been thrown on the market in the last years, specially these sweet,feminine,aquatic scents that are increasingly produced for men................
XS is a fruity fougere that is versatile, smooth and a pleasure to wear. After a green, minty, spicy, and somewhat fruity opening that I find similar to Eternity, XS transitions nicely into the juniper, floral heart that still holds a touch of green before settling into a light musk and wood base. Longevity is good and sillage is moderate. XS is suitable for office wear and is also a fine casual scent. I must admit, I was a bit skeptical when I first sampled this. The top notes are my least favorite stage of the fragrance, especially during the first few minutes after take off. I almost gave up on this one before I gave it a full wear. I recommend XS. Not a classic, but it smells great. Yes, this is XS and let's not "trim it" as was suggested by one esteemed critic who shall not be named.
Wow! This one blew me away right from the first spray. It's an aquatic/musk fragrance that will last forever, not overbearing, good sillage and again will last FOREVER. My main reason for loving this scent is that it such a refreshing and classy fragrance through all 3 phases. It doesn't resort to overpowering in the opening for it's staying power. Very well balanced and a masterpiece in my book. Worth every penny and blind buy worthy.
