Paco Rabanne Releases New Fragrances for Him & Her

This fall, Parisian fragrance house Paco Rabanne has created the perfect scents for him & for her: Invictus Platinum and Olympea Solar.

Invictus Platinum

In 2013, the well-known fragrance house released a legendary scent: INVICTUS. An unapologetic vision of victorious masculinity. A powerful fragrance, known the world over. This season, the mythical fragrance has been reimagined for a new generation with a continual theme: sports. A new chapter for INVICTUS; a striking fragrance created for the new players: INVICTUS PLATINUM, bigger, bolder and more intense than ever before.

Inspired by sports legends who never give up, PACO RABANNE INVICTUS PLATINUM, crafted by Domitille Michalon-Bertier, is the striking new Eau de Parfum–exclusively for those who always meet the challenge. “I wanted to capture the addictive dimension of a resinous wood and imagine a metallic potion out of it”-Domitille Michalon-Bertier.

Designed as a greatness-booster, this invigorating elixir explodes with elegant lavender, the flowers representing purity, grace and devotion. The scent is laced with an intense minty freshness, which symbolizes virtue in the language of flowers. Vibrating on a high note, juicy, invigorating grapefruit stirred with absinth leads the way to the rich, masculine tones of patchouli, which grounds and balances, alongside cypress–the tree with an impressive height, standing between earth and the world beyond, inviting us to ponder the deeper meaning of our life experience. A woody finish is the perfect ending to this complex cocktail of power and confidence. The scent is vegan and it has been composed with ingredients of 90% natural origin, drawing from the earth that shapes us.

Audacity, confidence, attitude; values that moved Paco Rabanne then, and that sportsmen look to today. “By pushing the experiences to the limits, we can change mindsets”-Paco Rabanne.

Olympea Solar

Launching in July, discover the sparkling energy of mandarin peel and orange warmed with heady white blossoms and ylang ylang.

To celebrate woman’s strength, her diverse beauty, along with her self-confidence, Paco Rabanne has reimagined the Olympéa femininity, rewriting what it symbolizes for all of the epic women today. It’s higher, and brighter, a promise for the future that’s coming. Luminous and sharp, like a ray of sunlight, marking its path with strength and boldness. Sensual and round, like the ‘O’ in paco, like the sun at its zenith. The smell of Olympea Solar, the new Eau de Parfum crafted by perfumer Anne Flippo, is a fougere woody that stimulates the senses and pushes you to your limits.
