Her multi-faceted bottle catches light like a gilded yellow diamond, but it’s her fragrance that sealed the deal for me. New Lady Million by Paco Rabanne Eau de Parfum ($88), available exclusively at Sephora starting September 20, understands how important a good first impression can be.
The official fragrance notes include…
- Top: bitter orange, raspberry and neroli (a plant oil with a spicy scent)
- Middle: jasmine, gardenia and orange flower
- Base : patchouli, amber and honey
Lady Million sparkles in more ways than one, but if you’re trying to sniff out something youthful, innocent and carefree (like Marc Jacobs Daisy), you won’t find it here. Million has grownup gals written all over it — a la piano bars and high heels, expensive champagne and late nights spent flirting with well-dressed bad boys. If I were single and out looking for trouble with my girls, I’d douse myself in it from head to toe!
I’d call the scent a floral oriental, akin to Jean Paul Gautier Classique, Burberry Brit, Dolce & Gabbana The One and Benefit Something About Sophia. If any of those are scents you like, you might want to give it a sniff when it launches later this month.
