It has a super fresh and sweet scent that will give you a lot of compliments, especially from the ladies. It’s very casual that works for most occasions, therefore making it incredibly versatile. It definitely breaths youthful but it doesn’t necessary means that only young people could wear this scent. If you feel confident and comfortable with it, use it no matter what people say!

Longevity of Paco Rabanne Invictus

Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male’s performance is great. Apply it on your chest, wrist, and neck, and you can expect at least 7-8 hours of it. We would consider it in the long-lasting category, after that the smell is more noticeable in close encounters.

The projection and sillage are also great but decrease rapidly after around 4 hours of great projection. The smell itself is non-offensive in a sweet, youthful way.


For its price, the versatility is great. You will not feel bad by using this fragrance as your everyday signature scent and not being ruined at the same time. As the smell is so inoffensive it works for most occasions, by the notes itself you imagine a perfect summer scent, and it is. But we feel it would work just as good during winter as well, with lower temperatures the vanilla notes will do amazingly.

The sillage is strong with this one, and you will get noticed while wearing it. Be prepared to be confident as you will gain attention while entering the room.

Paco Rabanne Invictus Smell & Notes

Invictus features a woody base that consists of oakmoss, ambergris, guaiac wood and patchouli, which helps to establish a classic, elegant foundation that is a little bit subtler in nature than some contemporary scents.

The heart notes consist of bay leaf and jasmine, then lead into the top notes: grapefruit, orange, and sea notes.

The final product is a fresh scent that succeeds at being bold while simultaneously drawing upon classic components to create an elegant option for young and old men alike.

The fragrance is sweet and robust, but you could also smell some artificial notes about it. Considering its price it’s only reasonable. However, ladies love it!


Paco Rabanne Invictus is youthful and fresh fragrance for the younger men but could be pulled off for most if used in the right occasions.

If you decide to try it, wait for the dry-down to really get an accurate feel of the scent. It has an amazingly unique, citrus and fruity smell that most people fell in love with.
