The Lady Million of paco Rabanne brings together two of my top Loves — perfume and diamonds! This is no ordinary shell — modelled after the famous Régent bead (a colossal 410-carat uncut sparkler from the Golkonda mines, which was fashioned into a 141-carat pillow brilliant which went on to grace the crowns of Louis XV and Louis XVI, before adorning Marie Antoinette’s headpiece; it is currently on display in the Louvre), this multifaceted bottle was visualised by Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance, renowned designer of both items and interiors. Rabanne’s own architectural influence is also evident in every detail, right from the carefully calibrated depth to the high quality and weight of the glass and even the color (diamonds are chilly, but the bottle is a warm, sensual gold).
As for the fragrance to be honest I was less than Blown away at first whiff. But once it arrived house and settled down a bit (how could you resist such a dramatic design), somehow, someplace things clicked into position and its currently my favourite perfume for the season.
1 Million Privé ~”two years ago, Christophe Raynaud Combined forces with Michel Girard and Olivier Pescheux to dream up 1 Million Eau de Toilette. The leathery, animal scent illuminates a bit of blood flow and cinnamon. He’s kept luscious components and these two blazing for 1 Million Privé. In a spin, he incorporated noble materials to take it out of classic and has improved the odor. The center is an extraordinary adventure of nargile tobacco enriched with valuable myrrh. The base notes are sensual and sexy with a blend of patchouli and tonka bean absolute. Exciting and explosive! This is a composite of materials in warm gold and copper tones with all the reflections of resin along with tobacco’s thickness. The 1 Million Privé man seems under your nose: elegant, sometimes frivolous extreme one million paco rabanne.
“forbidden”… When Anne Flipo, creator of Lady Million and now the Privé version, evokes the odor of the captivating and irresistible woman, it’s a world in itself that comes through in waves that are aromatic. With notes of orange blossom and wood that is vibrant, Lady Million Eau de Parfum and the seduction card play, attracting her partner into an dangerous pairing. Lady Million Privé requires the adventure one step farther to lands that are profound and hypnotic, oriental and sensual far from toning things down. The enchantment is sealed by the amazing trio of bright heliotrope flower, sexy and creamy vanilla and strawberry. In the base notes, appealing and tender cocoa bean comes to the fore, followed by honey and vibrant patchouli. An narcotic effect along with a wave of heat like a enveloping soft and sirocco wind. An invitation to want and a odor of escape”
