Ultraviolet by Paco Rabanne, Ultraviolet is an intense and provocative cologne that was created in 1999 and launched in 2001. This fragrance was designed as the male counterpart to a perfume of the same name.
This green and woody fragrance starts off with a powerful combination of refreshing mint and cozy amber. As the scent builds, the spicy, earthy heart makes its way to the forefront with middle notes of oriental spices, earthy pepper and woody vetiver. The final notes of vanilla and oakmoss create a warmer note for the cologne to sit on as it lingers on the wearer's skin.
Paco Rabanne, a French fashion house, is the creator of this one-of-a-kind scent. The brand is known for its creativity and innovation, which was first applied to the clothing line it started producing in 1966. Consumers quickly became familiar with the eclectic styles offered by the company that often incorporated unlikely materials in the clothing. The first colognes and perfumes weren't launched until 1969.
