Invictus Perfume by Paco Rabanne The bottle in the shape of a championship cup, carried by Australian rugby player Nick Youngquist, was designed in the advertising campaign to signify victory and victory. Veronique Nyberg, the creator of this fragrance says: The great challenge for me was not only not to fail, and not to be defeated, but to create a product that brings happiness to the soul and to everyone who smells it. The process was a race against time and a fierce competition for me and my team of 3 other perfumers. The fact that this perfume comes after ( 1 million ) and the overwhelming success it achieved, obligated us to strive to create a perfume of the same level, if not better. In this sense, nothing could be left to chance, and it was necessary that every component we chose should have an essential function, however simple it may be.” And she continues: “By virtue of my studies and my specialization in organic physics, I tend to uncomplicated things, and not to use many components without benefit or an effective role. We worked on this fragrance for two and a half years, and tried 5,500 mixtures, to reach a fragrance that expresses excitement and freshness at the same time.” Paco Rabanne Invictus perfume notes Top notes: grapefruit, sea water scent.
