Baroque’N’ Roll

bel-barockn-roll_blogPaco Rabanne’s Black XS for Her line – feminine and sexy, a bewitching fragrance – pure Baroque’N Roll! A spread in my GPP journal for the current GPP26 crusade: Scent of the Season. I sprayed the tag with some perfume. I like to be a loyal girl, but I wrote about my dilemma last June in GPP 9 crusade that my favorite perfume was no longer available outside of France, and even there hard to find. Quickly thereafter I discovered and fell in love with Paco Rabanne’s Black XS line!!!! I wish you could smell the scent. Here’s me with my latest acquisition, the shower gel halo. 🙂 This scent will stay on me for a long time hopefully!

Description: Paco Rabanne Black XS Pour Elle is a fragrance full of contrasts. The initial burst is all radiance and sparkle with heart notes of black violet, hellebore rose and cacao flower, base notes of Massoia
wood with patchouli and Tahitian vanilla, cranberry, pink pepper berries and tamarind flower blending femininity and sensuality. Hellebore rose voluptuously blooms in warm addictive woody ambery notes. All these ingredients make up a beautiful sexy, floral, woody scent that has to be tried. This ultra-feminine, carnal fragrance may cause addiction.


Paco Rabanne’s Black XS für Sie-Linie – feminin und sexy, ein betörender Duft – purer Barock ‘n Roll! Zum Jahresende noch eine Doppelseite in meinem GPP Journal für die aktuelle GPP26 Crusade: Duft der Jahreszeit. Hab das Tag mit Parfum besprüht. Versuche loyal zu sein, doch hab ich in der GPP 9 Crusade über mein Dilemma geschrieben, dass mein Lieblingsparfum leider nur noch in Frankreich erhältlich ist, und dort auch nicht überall. Kurz danach hab ich Paco Rabanne’s Black XSLinie endeckt und mich gleich verguckt!!! Ich wünschte, es gäbe ein Duft-Internet. Hab mir kürzlich das Duschgel gegönnt und kam nicht umhin, es für meinen Heiligenschein zu benutzen. 🙂 Hoffentlich wird mich dieser Duft lange begleiten!

  1. The bottle and packaging design look so cool! Love the description.

  2. Belinda! Yay!! You are back playing with us! LOVE these pages. *makes a note to find perfume for self* Very cool subject line 🙂 Glad you found a new scent because it’s such a bummer when you can’t find more of your fave. You asked how often I change mine – I have a few every day scents, and a few just-for-dress-up scents, but I like to have something new for summer and winter. Thanks for sharing your pages with the team. Merry Christmas girl. xo
