Invictus 50ml cologne $68.00

A sensual fresh composition, the usual scent pyramid was discarded in favour of a two-layered entity. Invictus is a clash of worlds, powers, sensations, and values: a fresh woody scent, both muscular and spicy. They were really aiming for salty skin—but without any smell of the ocean. It’s a sharp contrast that was achieved with a marine accord, grapefruit zest and bay leaf. The addictive quality comes from the ultra-masculine identity and the animal magnetism of a woody amber accord. Guaiac wood, ambergris and patchouli leave a studly sillage. From the beginning, this fragrance has been designed to be surprising, and stand out through the duality of its construction.” Visit PacoRabanne.com for more info.
