Fragrance Of The Month: Paco Rabanne Invictus Victory EDP

This month? We try out Paco Rabanne Invictus Victory EDP…

When you see a gold V for victory embossed front and centre on the black, trophy-shaped glass flacon of Paco Rabanne’s new eau de parfum Invictus Victory, you know it’s going to be a winning scent.

How could it not be with its fresh, yet powerful appeal? Opening with tart citrus notes, the clean and zesty parfum is quickly paired with the smoky, woody notes of incense to create an intriguing sense of vibrant and intense duality. These two contradictory forces come together again working their olfactory magic as the elixir eases into a soft, sweet pool of vanilla before being absorbed by the heady and magnetic tonka bean. The overall effect is as captivating as it is majestic, an inviting yet mysterious, fresh and spicy scent.

Following in the footsteps of the eponymous Spanish designer’s original Invictus eau that launched in 2013, this new and victorious blend gives the line newfound dexterity. Strong and compelling, masculine and inviting, Invictus Victory is, in every sense of its name, the fragrance you just can’t beat.

Paco Rabanne Invictus Victory EDP, $125 for 100 ml, available online at www.thebay.com and at the Hudson’s Bay stores across Canada.
