Paco Rabanne Goes Rock’N’Roll For New Perfumes

Paco Rabanne’s Black XS fragrance line is back with 2016 edition inspired by the city of angels, Los Angeles…

The bright light of the City of Angels has made its way through the traditionally dark Black XS bottles. For the 2016 edition, Paco Rabanne has orange brightness of the sun for her, and a night with a full moon or the blue of the Pacific for him. Of course, black still remains the dominant colour, but here it adopts a glamorous rock star lacquer.

Black XS L.A. for her

PACO_RABANNE_FLACON_BLACK_XS_LA_FEMMEV2The perfume of this new limited edition has a solid and sensual base: gourmand vanilla, enchanting amber, earthy woods. Black XS L.A. for her has a tender heart in which the famous hellebore rose and orchid meet the exoticism and intoxicating base notes of rum. On the surface, a delicate coconut water, lively cranberries, and bitter orange with a thick bark come face to face with the tenderness of tamarind leaf. The miraculous accord of opposites, the marriage of love and rock shape its character.

Olfactory Notes of Black XS L.A. for her:

Top: Coconut, Bitter Orange, Cranberry, Tamarind, Lemon

Heart: Hellebore Flower, Orchid, Rum, Jasmine, Magnolia, Peach

Base: Vanilla, Amber, Woody Notes, Caramel, Patchouli, White Musk

Black XS L.A. for him


Now imagine the alter ego of this blend of sensitivity and rock ’n’roll. Black XS L.A. for him adopts a crystalline mineral base softened by a cinnamon heart. In the top notes, sun-soaked Florida Orange offers a dynamic, invigorating and exuberant start, while a clary accent adds sensuality and density to the accord. A fragrance that plays on its complexities, combining its mineral, sun-kissed freshness with the strength of deeply masculine textures.

Olfactory Notes of Black XS L.A. for him:

Top: Orange, Clary Sage, Lemon

Heart: Cinnamon, Apple, Lily-Of-The-Valley, Pineapple

Base: Woody Notes, Coumarin, Oakmoss, Vanilla
