Paco Rabanne has always been a fashion architect, a tireless artist who constantly experiments with new ideas and new materials to dress men in the most daring way possible. Her desire to surprise is omnipresent and even appears in each of her fragrances. His perfume One Million had thus displayed his unique style making him a visionary and a precursor of modernity allied to a good dose of luxury and humor. Also, in this year 2016, Paco Rabanne decided to bring this charmer back to the forefront. 1 Million Privé arrives and already promises to be the new essential ingot of men’s perfumery.
The refined scent of gold according to Paco Rabanne
On the scent side, the new One Million Privé was developed by perfumer Christophe Raynaud. He chose to start his fragrance with a fruity and fresh touch of blood mandarin, a citrus fruit that is both sweet and tangy. It is, for the occasion, associated with cinnamon, a warm, woody and powdery spice. Then, 1 Million Privé evolves into a more honeyed heart, waxy and aromatic based on hookah tobacco. This is then accompanied by myrrh resin, an ingredient taken from a tree native to Africa and used for a very long time in perfumery, especially in the time of Ancient Egypt. This gives off humid, sweet and aniseed aromas. It even has a little spicy side reminiscent of saffron, coriander and cloves. Finally, One Million Privé ends with a warmer and more sensual scent typical of oriental perfumes: that of patchouli. This is then embellished with a suave, praline and vanilla scent of tonka bean absolute. As Paco Rabanne says, One Million Privé is the olfactory transcription of a “famous gold bar.” Intense and precious. This is an oriental and woody fragrance that clearly displays Paco Rabanne’s love for contrasts and daring.
The iconic ingot of One Million Privé
Of course, the new One Million Privé would be nothing without its famous ingot-shaped bottle. This has become iconic of this collection and displays unparalleled strength yet resided in extreme simplicity. Indeed, what could be more evocative than a gold bar? This very original container then sticks perfectly to the universe of Paco Rabanne. It is also inspired by the rectangular dominoes that the designer used to make his most beautiful dresses. More than a simple container, the bottle of One Million Privé is a real design object. Moreover, it does not have a stopper. This is directly integrated into the body of this case, a very ingenious idea. One Million Privé is always covered with a metal frame giving it strength and shine. Nevertheless, this one wants to be darker and more amber than before. Its sides nevertheless reveal the golden color of its juice, reminiscent of the opulence of gold. Finally, the name of One Million Privé is affixed on its front face in a writing very clearly evoking the universe of the Far West.
