Paco Rabanne 1 Million Elixir Parfum Intense Review

If you’re a Paco Rabanne 1 Million fan, you’re definitely not alone; it’s an absolute icon of a fragrance, and one of our all-time best-sellers here at Escentual. And if you’re one of the many individuals who proudly declares 1 Million to be their signature scent, you’re going to want to hear all about the 2022 addition to the beloved fragrance line: Paco Rabanne 1 Million Elixir Parfum Intense. It’s bold, sexy and unmistakably 1 Million…


This Fragrance Smells Like…

1 Million Elixir is built around a selection of hand-picked ingredients, including a carefully balanced blend of Turkish Damascena rose, osmanthus and tonka beans, to offer a fragrant masterpiece that stands out from the crowd due to the unrivalled quality of its raw materials.

The deeply sensual woody-amber fragrance opens with a blend of crisp apple and davana, which adds a fruity tea-like edge to the scent. The heart unfolds with a rich rose Damascena note, paired with smooth osmanthus and soft, warm cedarwood for a fragrance with universal appeal. The base is where the fragrance’s seductive side really comes to life as a delicious, hard-to-resist blend of vanilla absolute, tonka beans and patchouli warms on the skin.

What’s The Story Behind This Scent?

Paco Rabanne 1 Million Elixir Parfum Intense joins the 1 Million family as the 2022 celebration of luxury, offering a fragrance that’s driven by a desire for quality. It continues the gold bar theme through both its design and rich aroma, honouring the way that gold represents power, luxury and wealth through many aspects of modern life – from fashion and jewellery to design and architecture – while subsequently celebrating the finest quality ingredients.


You Will Love This If…

If you’re a fan of the beloved 1 Million line, then you’ll definitely want to try this intense edition. It offers a bold, powerful new take on the fragrance collection while still being recognisably 1 Million.


This Perfume Smells Similar To:

Taking the intensity of the original to exciting new heights, 1 Million Elixir Parfum Intense builds on its predecessors (and all of its flankers for that matter) to offer a signature that’s richer than ever before. If you’re a fan of the original but want an even more powerful signature – perhaps to wear at night – then this is a great go-to. It does differ quite a lot in terms of its note structure, but you can tell that it’s part of the 1 Million family, thanks to its rich, confident and irresistible tone.


Is Paco Rabanne 1 Million Elixir Unisex?

1 Million Elixir Parfum Intense is marketed as a fragrance for men, just like the rest of the fragrances in the emblematic collection. Although I can see why it’s marketed that way, here at Escentual, we always believe that anyone can – and should – wear whatever fragrance they love, no matter who it’s aimed at. Personally, I think anyone who loves bold, deep signatures would love the rich, woody aroma of 1 Million Elixir.


What’s The Longevity Like?

It’s safe to say that Paco Rabanne 1 Million Elixir Parfum Intense is an incredibly long-lasting fragrance. But it’s not just long-lasting; it’s also incredibly powerful – I spritzed it on my wrist an hour before popping downstairs for lunch, and as soon as I walked into the kitchen, my dad asked what fragrance I was wearing!


What’s Special About The Bottle?

Just like its scent, the 1 Million gold bar is iconic – and now it’s even bolder, more distinct and more sophisticated. The gold bar-esque design is relatively similar to the original, although it now features a raised emblem set against a black triangle that has an even more opulent feel.
