Right now I am staring at a stunning elongated diamond bottle on my desk. The elegantly inscribed name brings nostalgia as Paco Rabanne during high school days was and still is a coveted fragrance. It was on everyone’s Christmas list and every boy I know had a story on how they nicked the bottles from their fathers’ dresser just to get a few spritz. Which brings priceless stares from girls in school! It was such a hit – a fragrance you couldn’t get enough of.
The success of Paco Rabanne’s men’s fragrance prompted them to create a specific line for us women. Lady Million fragrance burst into scene in 2010. Another version Eau de Gold was released in 2012 and fast forward to 2014, the line gave birth to Lady Million Eau Gold. With a mix of nostalgia, I unpack the gold box. Will it captivate me the same as in my younger days?
Vertical Golden Diamond
The bottle has golden cap and stands vertical in the shape of a tall diamond. It looks ethereal glowing softly with light golden color of the fragrance. For some it evokes an image of an elegant crystal glass champagne. Twist the gold cap to reveal atomizer and the signature Eau My Gold! name underneath.
A Bottle of Personal Pleasure
Lady Million Eau Gold! is described as a new olfactory adventure that offers something different, while staying true to its heritage. The pursuit of personal pleasure is a key focus. In the video commercial, Lady Million played by model Hana Jirickova snaps her fingers and quickly makes her dream come true — which is not embodied by material things like flashy cars – but simple, pure pleasure.
Refreshing World of Cocktail in Golden Bottle
The nose behind Lady Million Eau Gold! is Anne Flippo also the very same person who created the iconic Lady Million. She chaneled the world of cocktail and added notes of green mango, floral, grapefruit, violet leaf, orange blossom, cedar and musk.
Fresh, alluring, glamorous. Those were my first three thoughts and in that particular order. It has the perfect balance of fruity and floral notes that I can wear it from day to night any season of the year. In fact, if you are looking for your own signature fragrance, you might want to consider Lady Million Eau My Gold!
And with a catchy add campaign directed by Alexandre Courtès, we see the Lady Million Jirickova recreate the famous Million finger snap – then morphs into a sparkling Burlesque-style showgirl who bathes in bubbles inside a giant cocktail glass. Now this cocktail theme will remind everyone of their clubbing phase. What’s not to love then? Just a spritz and you are transported to a world of happiness you yourself secretly knows!
