In July, Spanish fashion brand Paco Rabanne will launch Invictus, its latest fragrance for men.
It will be a woody aquatic with head notes of grapefruit and a marine accord, heart notes of bay leaf, jasmine and hedione (methyl dihydrojasmonate, which brightens the scent of jasmine), and base notes of guaiac wood, patchouli, oak moss and ambergris.
It will be available in 50ml and 100ml edt concentrations, along with an ancillary line including aftershave and shower gel. Paco Rabanne has produced around 47 fragrances since it launched its first perfume, the feminine Calandre, in 1969. Its licence is owned by Spanish conglomerate Puig, which also helms the prestige brands Valentino, Prada and Comme des Garçons.
