Now shipping, the new favorite fragrance of Fort Knox’s male employees, 1 Million Eau de Toilette ($69)!
Okay, maybe not, but doesn’t the bottle look just like a gold bar?
“Excuse me, sir, but I think that’s my gold bar you have there. It must have fallen out of my pocket (?).”
Since I’ve been baptizing myself on an almost daily basis lately with Paco Rabanne Lady Million, I couldn’t wait to try the version for men, particularly after MBB reader Kim said that it was the bestselling fragrance in duty free stores.
Sure, the bottle has that Monopoly-meets-a-Spanish galleon vibe, but it’s growing on me. I appreciate the clean lines, and I think the design authentically represents the scent.
El Hub likes the bottle. He called it “shiny” (man of few words) and said it could double as a weapon — which is a good thing, apparently.
Yeah, I guess this one’s marketed for boys, LOL!
Like the version for women, this 1 Million boasts a blend of spicy notes mixed with citrus and warm amber.
The official fragrance notes includeâ€¦
- Top: grapefruit, mint and blood mandarin
- Middle: rose, cinnamon and spice
- Base: leather, white wood, amber and Indonesian patchouli
I call it a woody oriental — a little more formal than the kinds of men’s fragrances I usually like (hello, Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Pour Homme!), but it has a sexy warmth I like.
Picture a devilishly charming business dude in a pinstripe suit. Or better yet, you’re trapped in an elevator alone with Don Draper, and he smells just like this!
If you like spicy scents on your guy, fragrances like Calvin Klein Obsession, John Varvatos, Gucci Envy for Men or Giorgio Armani Code, 1 Million for men might be something you’ll like.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Bienvenidos a hump day!
