<3 Paco Rabanne, Black XS <3

I bought this perfume about a year and a half ago whilst searching for a new perfume, I tried out the tester and immediately was intrigued, the smell was gorgeous!


--------------
THE PRICE
--------------

Black XS comes in 3 bottle sizes:

30ml = the price of this is usually around £25.99

50ml = the prince of this is usually around £34.99

80ml = the price of this is usually around £45.99

Some may think that this is quite expensive but I find it quite reasonable considering the benefits it has which I will tell you about when it comes to my experience.

----------------------
THE APPEARANCE
----------------------

I would say the bottle that Black XS comes in is shaped like an apple.
The bottle is glass and very dark pink, getting constantly darker as you travel down the bottle with your eyes, turning almost black..
On the front of the bottle is Black XS in fancy writing and roses coming out of the words, this fits in perfectly with the gorgeous rose which is engraved on the front of the bottle.
The lid is jet black and matches the rest of the bottle perfectly.

Looking at this bottle told me that it was a mysterious, edgy, rock 'n' roll fragrance, the bottle is simply stunning and this is what attracted me to try it out.

The box that the perfume comes in is jet black with a pink rose on the front below the white and pink Black XS logo. Underneath the rose is the name of Paco Rabanne, if you look around your local perfume shop, you will also find more fragrances by Paco Rabanne.

Below Paco Rabanne is more useful information, such as how many ml you have with your product ect..

MY EXPERIENCE
--------------------


This perfume seemed very modern to me, it smelt fruity and floral when sprayed onto my skin, I felt girly and flirty but at the same time I also felt rebellious and dark..

Heart notes:
Black violet, cocoa flower

Top notes:
Pink pepper berries, cranberry

Base notes:
Patchouli and black vanilla

At first spray the smell was very sharp and I was hit straight away with the pink pepper berries and the cranberries, it smelt feminine and addictive. It reminded me of a more expensive version of my usual perfume, Fantasy by Britney Spears.

After a minute or so of being on, all the smells began to release and I have to be honest, it smelt amazing, this perfume has personality in it, I love the feeling it gives me whilst on.

I find this perfume very interesting, very bold with its smell even though it isn't over powering, the whole perfume is very balanced and it comes across amazingly..it has a very sweet smell about it and I feel very playful whilst wearing it, its perfect for nights out and those cold winter days. It makes you so happy whilst wearing it, the sweet fruits come across gorgeously without giving you a headache or making you feel sick.

One or two sprays of this perfume and that is me done for the day, the smell last around 8 hours for me, it has great lasting power.
The smell isn't as strong at the end of the day but it definitely is still noticeable on your skin, I find after around 5 hours the fruitiness wears down, and the cocoa and vanilla come through, I don't mind this though as it still smells amazing.

I love this perfume, its everything I want in one, sexy, playful, flirty, rebellious, sweet, makes you feel all rock 'n' roll.

I can't recommend this enough, as soon as I get a job and money I will be straight to the perfume shop and make sure I grab some, this comes into my top 5 perfumes, its gorgeous.
