Lady Million by Paco Rabanne Review

Now that the weather is heading into the cool zone and you’re begining to think boots and cozy sweaters you might be on the look out for that perfect Fall fragrance to compliment both your makeup and wardrobe looks, after all beauty is an all out affair that not only includes a great outfit and fantastic makeup but also a perfect scent!

Lady Million Eau de Parfum Spray by Paco Rabanneis a new sophisticated fragrance that should suit your Fall beautifully.


Lady Million is definitely a different scent for me as I tend to levitate towards fruity, sweeter blends for myself. This is warm, rich, and sophisticated and not my typical fragrance however I can completely get on board with it simply because it’s such a rich, complex fragrance as per its name.

I’d definitely consider it for evening wear best but it’s soft enough to work well in the day. It has incredible linger and a very nice throw with a simple spritz or two but don’t go over that as it might prove a tad too powerful for day time use if applied to liberally.

The scent is vibrant, sensual, and very sophisticated coming across as a bright, sparkling slightly spicy floral. It has a powerful floral body but hints of bitter orange and raspberry brighten it up with a strong note of orange blossom that dominates and morphs it towards a realm of both spicy and warm.

Other notes of Sambac Jasmine, Gardenia, Honey, Amber, and even Patchouli are in the mix however they play a back seat to the stronger orange flower notes. Don’t be scared of the Patchouli note as it’s not noticeable in the least, believe me I’d know as I can’t stand the scent of Patchouli.

Basically the scent rounds off as a very rich blend which should appeal to those with a more distinguished fragrance nose that enjoy higher end perfume.

The scent comes housed in a golden diamond shaped bottle complimenting its namesake of “Lady Million”. It was designed to replicate a diamond on display in the Louvre.

This was outside my normal fragrance realm but I enjoyed it none the less and think those who like richer fragrances will find this a winning hand for Fall.

    I received a sample of this from Sephora yesterday. I really didn’t it like it but it may just be the way it reacted with my body’s own chemistry, as scents can smell different on different people. On me it smelled kind if woodsy (and not in the good way) and dirty. I love the smell of amber, citrus, and just about any floral scent I can get my hands on, but this just didn’t do it for me. I did spray some on a paper towel and it smelled a lot better than it did on me, but I still wasn’t in love. I would recommend people get a sample (it’s one of the three free from Sephora right now) first or smell it in the store before ordering it. I will say though that your reviews are awesome and 99.9% spot-on so maybe this would smell like heavon on someone else. It just wasn’t for me.

      aw sorry Court. Wish it worked for you! I agree, scents really vary with body chemistry. Something that smells awesome on me what necessarily smell as great as someone else ;-D but thank you about the 99.9% spot on comment, I’m quite flattered by it :-D!
