I have always been a fragrance junkie, and it’s all my mother’s fault. My mother started buying me and my two sisters perfume when we were as young as eight years old. One Christmas morning, we all ran to dig in our stocking before we opened opening our presents, and we each had a full sized bottle of perfume. Back then, my mother sold Avon, so we each had an Avon perfume. I had one called Odyssey, and my sisters had Sweet Honesty and Candid.
Because there were no men in our home, I never really appreciated men’s fragrances. And when I did smell a men’s fragrance, I thought it was a strange scent..too strong and spicy. Sometimes I still feel that way about men’s fragrances, but desingers are really stepping it up with these new men’s fragrances that are coming out right now! I’m so excited about it. I’ve been really impressed with at least half of the colognes that I’ve smelled within the past few months. A few of the colognes smell mild enough for women to wear too. That’s always a plus.
I don’t think that a woman would want to wear this particular fragrance, 1 Million by Paco Rabanne, but I think we would love to smell it on a man. Rabanne also has a perfume for women called Lady Million, which is a great fragrance that I described as smelling like a rich lady. You can read that review by clicking on my profile. But if I had to put 1 Million up against Lady Million, I actually think that 1 Million would get my vote. It smells really clean, kind of soapy, and it has a slight mossy note that makes it smells more rugged, if you know what I mean. But the mossy note is very subtle, so the cologne doesn’t smell grassy at all. The prominent note is that wonderfully clean soapy scent. Smelling clean will never go out of style, and since men tend to smell dirtier than women (sorry guys), it would be nice for them to smell clean for a change.
Soapy scents are universally flattering for all, but the mossy note is what makes this fragrance uniquely masculine. I absolutely love this cologne, and I would swoon if a man was wearing it. I love it, I think men would love it, and I am giving it 5 out of 5 stars.
