Paco Rabanne Black XS .. or cleaning fluid?

You see the advert on TV and remember how nice XS was, so I got bought the new Black XS today thinking it would be kinda similar… yeah, quite a nice smell after putting a quick squirt on my wrist, which only lasted about 10 minutes and then the smell changed.

You know the smell of anti-static cleaning fluid that you get with CD and even old cassette head cleaners? As I sniff my wrist now, that’s what it smells like. Rather disappointing considering I was in a department store having whiffs of various aftershaves and shuddering at how sweet Boss Orange for women is, but I’ve never known such an after smell from a well known brand.

Try it for yourself and if you know that cleaning fluid smell, you’ll know what I’m talking about, gotta say I’m pretty disappointed.
