2005-2007: The birth of two fragrances made of stern stuff, Black XS and Black XS For Her. And a new territory of choice: Rock.
Pioneers in the genre, fragrances, bottles and commercials shook up the international perfume scene. The Black XS duo has successfully imposed a new style, winning fans the world over. 2012, from love to passion, Black XS is creating L'EXCÈS...
Paco Rabanne Black XS L'EXCÈS for Her Eau De Parfum is an excessively sensual oriental floral. A fusion of energy, the first notes of neroli and black pepper are electrifying; at the heart of the fragrance they pulse over a profusion of jasmine Queen of the Night and rose absolute... Mysterious and voluptuous, the base casts an addictive spell with an intoxicating overdose of cashmere wood.
Two talented perfumers have created these two fragrances and depict "excess": Emilie Coppermann for Black XS L'EXCÈS For Her and Fabrice Pellegrin for Black XS L'EXCÈS.
Black XS L'EXCÈS, two bottles styled to the extreme:
The two clearly identifiable Black XS L'EXCÈS bottles play the Rock stars... Virile, black lacquer and silver for him, with voluptuous garnet ombré curves for her. Evoking the rebellious, Rock attitude direction, the skull features as a glossy watermark on the black matte packs, and on the bottles in the form of a piercing for him and in a charm version for her, paired with the rose.
While the skull is reminiscent of the Rock codes of defiant and rebellious bikers, it is today the symbol of an elegant, ultra-contemporary Rock style. A generational phenomenon, the skull continues to express extravagance, exceeding your limits and the intense desire for freedom. It still symbolises the claim of belonging to another world than the established one. Because although we may have understood the rules, the pleasure still lies in breaking them! The skull is thus more than ever synonymous with Rock ‘n’ roll-style insubordination, glamour-infused provocation and an excess that is passionately Black XS L'EXCÈS...
