    Default Latest Paco Rabanne - Phantom!

    Anyone tried this yet? Thoughts positive and/or negative?

    Hideous bottle.

    Lavender, Lemon, Vanilla
    Sounds great to me

    This seems like the first non-flanker from a major designer in a long time

    Bottle is kinda cool I guess, I mean its different

    Looking forward to trying. It wouldn't be Paco Rabanne if the bottle isn't gaudy or head-shaking.

    I'm not digging the bottle presentation, it makes me think of the Moschino bottles.

    Interesting. The bottle is a little over the top, but I will sample when I get the chance.

    Ghastly bottle, but I would not judge the juice until trying it. Ok, maybe the bottle is not "ghastly", but definitely very juvenile.

    Yeah idk maybe they are making it like the juice is the phantom, and the robot is just the container/body? On that thought, I hope they dont mean it too literally

    Supposedly they patented the bottle over a year ago, and have it labeled as refillable on the site, so it seems like this release had some thought put towards it, so I'll give it the benefit of the doubt.

    Looks like a super intricate rubik's cube.. not sure if that's actually how the bottle opens or just for show lol

    The name intrigued me, and then I saw the bottle. Ick.

    Still could be good, though. Here's hoping. Sounds like a minimalist fougere.

    If the last few years are anything to go by the contents are likely to be as atrocious as the bottle. To say expectations are low would be an understatement.

    I've seen one guy post about it on FB. Says it a vanilla bomb, he is a big big fan, and it smells like nothing else in his collection of over 270 frags. If that means anything to anyone.

    How does that bottle convey "phantom"?

    Its gotta be referencing the juice inside. Imagining a bottle design of an actual phantom is pretty tough considering a bottle is an object that you can see to begin with. But in general yeah not my idea of a phantom

    I'm already hyped enough, that sounds really good. Need to get a sample of this one. I signed up for the Phantom Teasing on PR, no idea if they'll send me a sample of what though

    Should have been called "robot".

    It looks like this is going to be a robot bottle that you can snap together.

    The bottle reminds me of the Go-Bot toys I had growing up, futuristic cars that transform into a robot with a very large head. I think it looks kinda cool and I'm not even a Paco fan.
