1 Million Parfum (Paco Rabanne)

My Full Fragrance Review:

Hey guys, today I want to talk about 1 Million Parfum from Paco Rabanne. You know, the one in that iconic gold bar bottle that we’ve all seen? As of now, there are 9 entries in the 1 Million series, but I’ll be focusing on the Parfum version. Just a heads-up: I snagged this bottle at a great price, but found that I prefer other nightlife fragrances, so I haven’t actually worn it to a club. Still, I’ve sampled loads of scents, so I think you’ll find my opinion helpful.

  • Season: winter
  • Longevity: average
  • Occasion: nightlife
  • Price: $$

Smell:

If you’ve hit the club scene in the past 15 years, you’ve definitely smelled some version of 1 Million. Like many clubbing fragrances, it’s sweet, loud, and attention-grabbing. This Parfum version takes it up a notch with an intense, undefined fruit mix in its notes – it’s like a shisha fruit mix flavored tobacco. The smell is very synthetic. Compared to the original EdT, this Parfum is even louder, sweeter, and fruitier. While that might not be everyone’s cup of tea, it works well in a nightlife setting, so I’d recommend the Parfum over the EdT. While not the most refined fragrance of all time, it’s also fun and anything but boring.

Longevity:

This scent is loud and lasts long enough for a night out at your favorite club. I expected it to last longer, but it’s still around average, which is good enough for a night on the town.

Final Thoughts:

Honestly, there are probably better nightlife fragrances out there for most guys. But if you’re a fan of tutti frutti or a shisha bar regular, 1 Million Parfum might be right up your alley. Opt for the Parfum over the EdT since it’s stronger and more interesting, but be prepared for a very sweet scent.

Looking for a twist on the 1 Million formula? Give 1 Million Lucky a try – it swaps the fruit mix for some sweet honey and hazelnut, making it an interesting alternative to consider.
