    Default Can't believe that Paco has not come out with a 1 Million flanker?...

    The scent is making good sale you think he would flank the success? I could see a 1Million White Gold edition...with added peppermint schnapps and lemon accord.

    I'd probably be first in line to buy it. I have no problem admitting that I adore both 1 Million and Black XS. I don't care how many people are wearing it, 1 million is just almost the perfect cold weather scent for me. Black XS is a favorite as well (but longevity is a problem for me with B XS).

    I heard a rumor that they are working with Sean John, and the name of the new fragrance will be "I am the 1%." The source seems highly unreliable though. LOL.

    I actually like 1 Million, but can't really see how they would "flank" it successfully. It's kind of a dense bittersweet minty orange oddball that has a few dozen unnamed flankers all rolled into one scent.

    Good point.
    An EDP version - I Million Intense - would be very good.
    Perhaps followed up the next year by a woodier and sweeter Extreme EDT version.
    Though I'm not sure that I would be as enthused by a lighter Ete version for summer wear.

    Actually, I remember reading that they said 1 Million used mostly natural ingredients, except for the blonde leather accord. At least that was in a release from Paco Rabanne.

    Also, I don't get why people always complain about the sweetness of 1 Million. To me, the spices, woods, and patchouli in the base contrast the sweetness perfectly. On the other hand, I think others like Bond's New Haarlem and Rochas Man, which get tons of praise, are much sweeter and more cloying because they are "syrupy" with nothing spicy to contrast the sweetness.

    Seems there is a new one coming out. A "pure perfume" spray. Paco Rabanne One Million Absolutely Gold.



    With Paco Rabanne’s 1 Million Absolutely Gold and Paco Rabanne’s Lady Million Absolutely Gold, you’ll find your ultimate fantasy in a bottle. And from 15th June – 13th August, you’ll only find these new perfumes at World Duty Free stores.

    1 Million Absolutely Gold, Pure Perfume Eccentric, sensual and pure, an unexpected burst of mandarin, a powerful floral heart and sensual, masculine leather base notes give this original fragrance its powerful aura, innate refinement and distinct signature.

    In light of recent events I think they should work "Swiss Account" into the title somewhere. It could smell mysterious or feature a strong fishy note. Don't get me started on the Cayman edition.

    Will do; I'm expecting it to arrive tomorrow or Wednesday at the latest, so will let you know how it compares. I'm expecting it to be a bit closer to the skin than the regular due to the concentration, which may not be a bad thing as the original is extremely loud!

    Well, they "sort of" did. Paco rabanne is owned by Puig, owning Anotnio Bandera's and Carolina Herrera's scents. So far, they launched two very similar scents:

    - Bandera's The Golden Secret
    - Herrera's 212 VIP

    Now, I am very sure the multinational behind the bubble gum / fruity accord so distinctive of 1 Million has been marketing this aroma chemical, thus similar scents and knock offs are omnipresent: Lapidus Black Soul, Bogart's Silver Scent are two coming to my mind. Add knock offs, zillions of them.

    So there it goes, no need for flankers, I guess.

    Yes, I got it from a seller on there; it was the only one listed.

    Initial Impressions: Right off the bat, there is a pronounced mandarin note, which differs slightly from the original. However, what I am smelling five minutes in is almost identical to the EDT. It differs in that this is a slightly sweeter, slightly richer composition; in my very brief test, I wasn't detecting the metallic note that seems to run through the EDT, so I suppose you could say that the Parfum is smoother. However, it loses none of the 1 Million DNA. In fact, I would go so far as to say that people will not be able to tell the two apart. So far, I am disappointed as I was expecting it to be a different take on the original, more mature and refined; thus far it is not. I need to do some more extensive testing as this is based on a very quick spray and about an hour of wear. I would rate sillage and longevity to be the same, though this may wear a little closer to the skin (still ridiculous projection) I also intend to test the two versions side by side to compare them more accurately.

    At the moment, I would say that if you own the original, this will be a redundant purchase and certainly not worth the extra £/$/€ as it does smell very similar.

    More to come. Stay tuned.

    If you have the original, this won't really offer you anything different. Just stick with that as they are almost identical.

    I don't know about the lasting power as I only had it on for an hour. From my initial impressions I would guess that it projects slightly less than the original but probably lasts just as long.

    Both this and the original both strike me as somewhat vulgar; not a gentleman's fragrance at all. For those like me who were hoping for something more refined than the EDT, don't even bother with this.

    Sounds exactly like Silver Scent and Silver Scent Intense. The Intense have a bit less projection, is sweeter, richer and slightly less synthetic. Lasts longer and costs more than the EDT.
    Its redundant, yes, but for the lovers of the fragrance the differences worth to own both.
