The Black XS fragrance line from Paco Rabanne pays tribute to rock’n’roll music. The new perfume duo Black XS Los Angeles, arriving in early 2016, is dedicated to the US city of LA as one of the cradles of rock'n'roll.

Black XS L.A. for Him is a fragrance that combines sensitivity and rock, opening with dynamic notes of sunny oranges from Florida and clary sage. Its cinnamon heart softens the crystal - mineral base of the perfume.

The faces of the campaign are young rock stars Sky Ferreira and Gabriel-Kane Day-Lewis. The fragrances are available in Eau de Toilette concentration. The nose behind this fragrance is Olivier Cresp.

Perfume rating: 2.70 out of 5 with 32 votes.

Black XS Los Angeles for Him Fragrance Reviews

I bough this as I'm a fan of the Black XS line.
This is very fresh. Not as sweet as the original and more orange based.
I'm quite surprised with longevity, I get 8 hours. Sillage is good and it gets compliments.
Not comparing it to Ultra Zest, but i'd put them in the same category. But this one is much better for me, it agrees more with my ph.

1/27/16 - the first spray is a blast of orange that lingers for a few minutes. It then starts to settle down rather quickly to a somewhat woody fragrance with slight sweet accord. Projection is moderate and it appears to last slightly less than moderate (just got my bottle today in January and in a cool environment). I am a huge fan of Olivier Cresp and had to add this bottle to my collection. I think this fragrance will do best in a hot environment (summer/spring/maybe fall) which would probably pull out all the notes. I will definitely provide an updated review as soon as the weather warms up. Overall this fragrance is not anything new and probably won't build much momentum at this time, but it is worth giving a chance. Not unisex, smells like a guy IMO.

Nothing new or special.
Too sweet to my nose.
I am not recommending it.

Not as special and sweet as the first Black XS, smells more like an average (little fruity) masculine fragrance. The top is similar to L'excés because of strong pineapple note, but the drydown is boring oakmoss, orange and wood like an aftershave stuff.
Big no!

I smelled this the other day and i felt kinda surprised. I don't like it that much, but its different from the original. I get lots of juicy orange and some clary sage. I don't get the cinnamon at all. Very juicy and clean scent. Works great for summer days.

You're kinda wrong. Sometimes flanker is just a mildly altered fragrance of the original but there are flankers we mostly appreciate are kind of reinterpretation of the original fragrance. Also there are so many examples when you can't buy the original fragrance anymore because they discontinued it or reformulated to be unrecognisable, only the flanker (like Insense, Very Irresistible, etc.).

@Dark-X that is what a flanker is. nobody is stopping you from buying the originals if you prefer.

Paco Rabanne is the Ubisoft of the fragrance world.
Flanker after flanker of the same smell with mild alteration.
