Paco Fragrance Reviews

In 1995, the perfumer Rosendo Mateu (House of Puig) created this fragrance that competed directly with the newly released CK One (Calvin Klein). The point is that this cologne has never been as disclosed as the one from the North-american brand and, as a result, it ended up disappearing from shelves and many thought that had been discontinued. But the distribution returned occuring for airports stores and, currently, a change has occurred in the packaging, which was silver and today is black. Another unusual feature is that this cologne brings no lid. It comes in a can and its packaging is aluminum.

It consists of coriander, lemon, mandarin orange and pine, in the output; lavender, jasmine, pineapple, cyclamen and tea, in the heart; tonka bean, musk, sandalwood and cedar, in the base.
Once sprayed, reminded me of Déclaration (Cartier), with its notes of coriander and Mandarin orange, also in the output, like a summer version of this one. But this feeling fades, almost immediately, and the similarities with CK One begin to emerge. However, in my opinion, this one is a bit more masculine than the other, which is more fruity. Still, it is marketed as unisex.

Furthermore, I believe that the success of Azzaro Chrome (1996) has much more to do with its countryman, than with the other, of American origin. But as Paco arrived and left without much fanfare, the comparison made worldwide involves only the other two that were mentioned.

In terms of longevity, this one is very much better. I wonder what went wrong at that time, since this scent could have been one of the biggest successes of the brand, just as happened with the competitor.

This is an ok summer fragrance. Citric notes are the most dominant ones here but I found some minty tea and even cardamom and caraway in it, too. I also spotted a hint of crushed blackcurrant leaves in the opening and that's a scent which always makes me happy. Apart from those pleasant whiffs and a mildly interesting base Paco is a rather generic citrus which quite much resembles cK One. It also has something in common with some wet wipes, which is not that great, really. Longevity and sillage are ok for a summery cologne. For me it is - because of all those slightly imbalanced features - on the verge of like and dislike, ending up in like category.

Light, neutral, inoffensive. Also dry, herbal, not sweet, and by spraying it on your clothes you will make them smell quite literally like an empty box from Earl Grey tea. And I like the smell of Earl Grey tea. That's the best way I can describe this scent. Does not announce its presence, but instead evokes the feeling of cleanliness and freshness. Lasts somewhat like 5-6 hours.

Paco de Paco Rabanne : Simply the best.

It's my only perfume since i have fiveteen. You can paid me i can't take another perfume. When i knew that Paco Rabanne had decided to stop it, i believed that my heart will stoped. But i buy it in dutty free, in airport or on the ferries.

Je vais finir en français. Ce parfum est tout simplement le cadeau de ma vie. Je n'ai jamais pu m'en passer depuis plus de 15 ans, j'ai tout essayé, tous les autres parfums, toutes les marques, rien à faire, celui là me rends ivre de bonheur tellement il sent bon.

Dieu merci, les dutty free en ont encore, mais il me reste que trois bouteilles à la maison ...

With regards to the post below, this is exactly what I was wondering.
Having long been discontinued I was very happy when I managed to get a bottle of Paco in Gran Canaria airport a couple of years ago. It was a metallic silver bottle in a black box and was exactly the same as the ones I used to purchase at the end of the 1990's.
Last year a friend got me a bottle in tenerife airport and the metallic bottle is black and silver in a black box. I would not consider this as a fake as it was bought from the airport and it smells and lasts the same.
However, it would be good to know why the change in design. I understand that Paco was discontinued at least 13 years ago so where did this design come from? Was there a change in design when Paco was out the first time around and this is also surplus stock?
I understand that Paco has not been re-launched and only surplus stock is available in airports. Anyone got any more information?
Would be good if we could also get some Paco Energy (silver bottle in white box) that was launched in 1998 and disappeared about a year later.
Note: Azzaro Chrome (original) smells quite similar to Paco but a bit more masculine and perhaps less unisex. Give it a try though it's great.

Could someone tell me if there is a new design of the bottle of this perfume. Before it was all metal and higher, and now it's less like a metal only at the top and painted embossed Paco Rabanne, and down the bottle is black. Is this his a new design or is it fake?

Muy fresca por la combinación de limón y cilantro, sus principales notas. Algunos considerarán que es demasiado típica de los 90's, pero aún hoy funciona bien para cualquier persona joven que busque una sensación de limpieza y comodidad durante el día. Perfecta para ir al trabajo sin querer llamar mucho la atención.

This scent is really cool.
It is perfect in every way.
Very young, nice, clean, fresh, energetic...
It is now very difficult to find it for sale.
What remains is only the memory of a great perfume that almost brought me into the world of perfumery.
I love it.

No, the most disappointing blind buy EVER(and 90% of my colognes are blind buys) I ought it in duty free and I got home, tried it a couple days, couple weeks, months and I had enough.... I decided to were it though, when escorting my mom to do the shopping..I almost puked in the car... it was so sickeningly sweet and the floral accords, didn't complement each other...I have the same prob with JPG Fluer du male, maybe florals just aren't for me....so I advise that you try it first before you buy it...and does anyone know if this was discontinued...?

I tested it in a duty free shop in Brussels lately, it is very nice! Fresh, in a rather vegetal way, made me think of being in a forest or in a garden. The beginning is minty and a bit powdery(?), reminding me of Emporio Armani for her. The price was great, I actually regret not buying it, it would be nice for summer.
The lasting power was not bad either.

Wow, I have never loved the scent of citrus like the paco scent before. So I'm thinking to my self why don't people who are tired of the so common 1 million scent and still want some thing from paco rabanne go for this. I also think it is more masculine to be unisex

I remember the commercials that used to come on constantly on MTV, they basically made me want the fragrance. When I finally got to smell it, I love it. Loved the metal bottle as well. Very youthful scent!

It reminds me of Issey Miyake Pour Homme and CK One mixed together or at least it's in the same ball park. It's fresh, sourish citrus musky note. Green pine can be a little harsh but not bad. It could be unisex scent but it's likely to be worn by mostly men. The bottle is interesting but not fancy. My bottle now has less than 20% juice, so I store it away and out of sight because it's sad to see it low on juice. I am on a lookout for new one, but damn the price is so high.

Very nice and good !!! For me its masculine, not unisex. It reminds me a little bit green tea with lemon and maybe with some spices. Very fresh and bright. Recommending.

P-A-C-O! 1995: In mid 90ies fashion Rabanne launches his first unisex fragrance to commercial success. After the successful CK "One" and "Be" it was only a question of time that others followed suit. I loved the scent when I bought it in 1997 as I was young, the world was a better place and I was a young student travelling about. The scent is somewhat feminine to me and apart from the many igredients of citrus, I perceive it to smell of tulips...and I love tulips. If this scent had a colour, I'd have to be dark yellow, marigold, safrane, orange. Very happy and joyous fragrance that would please any young and agile person of a sporty intellect. Love the packaging: finally someone aware of the environment!!
