Paco Rabanne Lady Million Absolutely Gold - Absolutely Stunning!
|Paco Rabanne Lady Million Absolutely Gold|
The launch was for Paco Rabanne's new women's fragrance, Lady Million Absolutely Gold, an update on the uber popular Lady Million. And let me tell you, you will want to get your hands on this!
You know, I try to hold a certain standard of writing for this blog, but every once in a while I try something out and all I want to write is 'OMG. OMG. OMG. OMG. I DIE. I DIE. I DIE'.
Which is pretty much how I wanted to write this post! Luckily, I had a brief moment of clarity in my sweet, perfume-smelling frenzy and decided that might not be the best way to go. Phew.
Lady Million Absolutely Gold is the newest version of Paco Rabanne's famous Lady Million perfume. The bottle was created to give a sense luxury, as evident in the gold, diamond shaped bottle (the flat spritzer is a gorgeous touch) But that isn't even the best part. The best part is what's in the bottle. I'd probably still wear this if it was presented in a plastic water gun! Mental note: create a perfume line that is carried in mini toy-shaped bottles.
The perfume has top notes of orange, raspberry and neroli, middle notes of orange blossom, Sambac jasmine and gardenia. These are finished off with patchouli and amber.
I'm not very good at describing smells, but I'm gonna try, anyway! This one is sweet, but not so sickly sweet. You can definitely smell the patchouli and it mixes so wonderfully with the citrus and fruit notes. I'd like to describe this fragrance as your favorite day-to-night dress. The one that you can wear with a blazer to work and also with heels and a clutch for a night out. This is very wearable during the day and I've still found that it works just as well at night or in formal occasions. My poor bottle of Black Orchid has been sitting in the drawer for a couple months because I've just had no need to drag it out for night time!
