Introducing the fragrance release with Elle Fanning as the face, the FAME eau de parfum from the popular, Paco Rabanne. As quoted in the campaign; Empowering, enchanting, sensual, playful and irresistibly Parisian. She’s an icon. She’s a star. She’s FAME. A new covetable feminine fragrance that is embodied by a true star, the young American actor Elle Fanning. The FAME woman is the very essence of Paco Rabanne’s femininity. Radiant, self-confident, and multi-faceted as the Couturier’s iconic muses. I was lucky enough to receive this gorgeous scent to my desk for a couple of reviews and I’m so glad I have now discovered how pretty this perfume is. Let’s take a closer look at this new release from Paco Rabanne.
Product, Packaging & Texture
– Paco Rabanne FAME Eau De Parfum 10ml; the new empowering, enchanting and irresistibly Parisian fragrance from Paco Rabanne. Described as; sensual, playful. She’s an icon. She’s a star. She’s FAME. A new covetable feminine eau de parfum that is embodied by a true star. The young American actress Elle Fanning serves as the face of the campaign. The FAME woman is the very essence of Paco Rabanne’s femininity. Radiant, self-confident, and multi-faceted as the couturier’s iconic muses. With the top notes being; succulent mango and bergamot, middle notes of pure jasmine and olibanum, and base notes of vanilla and sandalwood. It is also described as having woody, floral and musk accords. I would say it starts of tropical with a hint of vanilla, then settles into a white floral with creamy incense. This particular travel size I have is 10ml, however the parfum comes in a full size range of 50ml or 80ml. There is a golden hue in the liquid of the fragrance and comes in a travel size 10ml glass tube with golden font and clip on lid. The full size bottles are very extravagant, just like FAME is. The packaging has a black and gold lid, with a golden base, the bottle itself has silver circles with golden tips patterned and layered down the neck and body of the bottle, with another golden base at the bottom, it is very avant-garde.

My Thoughts & Impressions
– Paco Rabanne FAME Eau De Parfum 10ml; recently arrived to my desk, was this gorgeous travel size fragrance from Paco Rabanne, and I’ve been using it since. I was immediately impressed because I love creamy gourmand, incense, musk accorded scents and this is right up that alley. It opens with a delicious tropical note which has a touch of vanilla (I love it), then it kind of settles with a white floral, bergamot, sandalwood and musk creamy incense. It’s a very pretty fragrance, perfectly suited to any occasion, day or night. I have thoroughly enjoyed it and have been wearing it on a continual basis in my small rotation, that has become my favourite group of fragrances. I have the 10ml and its perfect to take on-the-go with me, it fits in my handbag easily and even my smaller shoulder bag. I can take it on trips with me as well, I highly recommend this gem, there is a reason it has become so popular everywhere. Would I repurchase? it is a very definite yes! I would spend the $162 on a 50ml full size for sure! I can see it going directly into my full size collection with no second thoughts, plus the full size bottles last such a longer time. I am one of those perfume people who wear a fragrance every day.
