Between papa’s classic lavender and the eternal overtestostered juices of the 1980s, men’s perfumery suffers from a bad reputation: banal, too virile, boring … However, for ten years, a profound change has taken place, turning towards more boldness, richness and quality. Also, it seems that Paco Rabanne has decided to ride this wave of daring. In this case, this time he decided to revisit one of his star perfumes, the famous One Million. The most famous ingot in perfumery then returns in the form of 1 Million Privé and intends to shine more beautifully.
The new 1 Million Privé
This new opus of the famous One Million plunges us into a world of extravagance, gold and wealth. Just imagine the setting: “Red carpet, photographers and spotlights. Hollywood, Paris, London, Saint Petersburg. Luxury, opulence, glamor, emptiness. One Million Privé is faithful to the audacity of its predecessor and takes us into a whirlwind of unparalleled refinement and covetousness. Its scent immediately associates the fresh and fruity notes of blood mandarin with the more spicy, warm and powdery side of cinnamon. This daring and original accord then gives way to a more honeyed and spicy heart made from hookah tobacco and myrrh resin. Then, One Million Privé gradually evolves towards a very sensual base based on patchouli and tonka bean absolute. The rendering then becomes absolutely irresistible, almost praline and caramelized but still very smooth. Likewise, his ingot-shaped bottle is still present. One Million Privé simply declines it in a darker shade emphasizing the “private” side of this new opus. More than a simple bottle, this case is a real design object displaying Paco Rabanne’s love for the diversion of objects.
The actors of this new creation signed Paco Rabanne
Nevertheless, the ideas of Paco Rabanne would be nothing without actors at the height of his talent, starting with the perfumer who worked on this creation, the famous Christophe Raynaud. This one had already contributed to the development of the iconic 1 Million 2008 . However, at that time, he was surrounded by Michel Girard and Olivier Pescheux. Today, he offers us a solo creation. Thus, he is faithful to the universe of Paco Rabanne while clearly affixing his personal stamp.
In parallel, also know that the image of this perfume will be transmitted to us by the talented Sean O’Pry, muse of the brand since 2015. This one had in particular been spotted in 2006 on MySpace before parading on the biggest catwalks fashion and even appearing in music videos for Madonna or Taylor Swift. If the new television spot for the One Million Privé perfume has not yet been unveiled, then we have no doubt that this handsome young man with dark eyes will do wonderfully well to embody the image of this gentleman who has succeeded in everything.
