Paco Rabanne has launched Pacollection, with six new unisex fragrances — Crazy Me, Dangerous Me, Erotic Me, Fabulous Me, Genius Me and Strong Me — in squeezable, unbreakable packaging.
The first set of fragrances released since Julian Dossena took over as Creative Director at Paco Rabanne, each fragrance from the Pacollection range comes in a futuristic metal bottle inspired by Andy Warhol’s ‘Silver Clouds’.
Crazy Me ~ The Crazy Me eau de parfum is an electrifying floral fragrance powered by mimosa and sandalwood notes against green wasabi, for a paradoxical unisex scent with a spicy finish."
Dangerous Me ~ "The Dangerous Me eau de parfum is a textured, oriental fragrance powered by notes of vanilla, cedar and grey amber, for an inky and rich yet not overpowering unisex scent with a sultry finish."
Erotic Me ~ "The Erotic Me eau de parfum is a milky, warm fragrance powered by fruity and floral leather notes against osmanthus, for a warm and sultry unisex scent with a velvety finish."
Fabulous Me ~ "The Fabulous Me eau de parfum is a coppery, oriental fragrance powered by notes of pumpkin, sandalwood and green rhubarb, for a velvety and rich yet not overpowering unisex scent with a silky finish."
Genius Me ~ "The Genius Me eau de parfum is a fresh fragrance powered by rosemary and treemoss notes against cristallfizzTM – a clean-smelling molecule derived from weashing [sic] powder – for a futuristic, citrusy finish." Additional notes include orange zest.
Strong Me ~ "The Strong Me eau de parfum is an intense fragrance powered by notes of plum liqueur and vanilla, for a heady and rich yet not overpowering unisex scent with warm, hidden depths." Additional notes include davana, amber wood and warm metal notes.
Paco Rabanne Pacollection Crazy Me, Dangerous Me, Erotic Me, Fabulous Me, Genius Me and Strong Me are available now at Selfridges in the UK, £65 each for 62 ml Eau de Parfum. (They should start distribution in the US in September.)

I’m more curious about the squeezable, unbreakable bottle than I am about the perfumes. But now that I read again, it says “packaging” not bottle. The plot thickens.
WWD compares the bottles to Capri Sun…it is indeed the bottle that we’re talking about.
Yes! That sounds super fun. Would love to be able to play with one.
Wasabi gets my interest. Capri Sun without the numerous straw stabs to get it open also sounds interesting:)
Yes, should be interesting to see this packaging. Also curious if it is easier to mail than glass…in which case, wish it is what we were all using for decants.
Even if I weren’t cynical about six new scents being thrust upon the market (and maybe they’re all great! I don’t know!), those are some terrible, terrible names.
Seriously, they are a new low. (Although Genius Me smelling like laundry detergent did give me a good laugh.)
I´m intrigued about the packaging and how they smell.
But I am still not sure, cause it was not mentioned enough… are the rich yet not overpowering?
We actually make the packaging and it is indeed a squeezable soft pouch, unlike anything out on the market!
Is it rigid enough to stand up properly on a shelf like a glass bottle?
