IN YOUR FACE, PACO!!
I got this "scent" in the form of a sample, at a time when I still thought that the fragrances available at Douglas and Co. were the ultimate. Well... i was so ignorant. Anyway, a few days later, before work, I started to browse through my little collection, looking for a suitable scent. Between the manageable amount of bottles there were also some samples lying around, which, as we all know, you get more or less voluntarily when you buy a bottle. My eyes fell on a dark blue, gold labelled piece of cardboard and I thought, in my almost childish recklessness, "oh come on, what the hell"..... big mistake!! In retrospect, it might have been better if the sample had fallen behind the cupboard and stayed * FOR ALWAYS* there and rotted. Pressed once, pressed twice, pressed three times, and *PLAY*. The penetrating, exaggerated sweet stench hit me like an uppercut, comparable in feeling to the famous steam hammer blow à la Bud Spencer (I remember darkly hearing a devilish, evil laugh when I went down). When I regained consciousness, I only thought "Okay!? That's not so good now", but it can't get any worse and you can't humiliate a lying person or bring him to his knees. Ugh... so ignorant again. Because this broth should still develop into something indefinable, extremely annoying and uncomfortable, which, to my regret, lasted a long time. Accordingly "nice" was my working day. I like to compare this day with a long bus ride on a hot day, where you have to sit next to a stinking guy and have no chance to escape. Never before I have wished so much for a cold and the accompanying blocked nose. I was only glad when I was finally at home and could free myself from it in the shower, with the help of very hot water, in embryonic position and crying. By the way, I burned the contaminated clothes and hired a priest to exorcise the evil from the ashes and the rest of the sample is now in a nuclear waste dump. So, as you might have noticed, I don't like this scent very much now and I would pay double the price to give Paco Rabanne a slap in the face for it, but at least this experience has given me enough words for the first time to write a comment here.

Thanks for reading it. :)

She wore blue velvet
I must say that I had classified night as women's fragrance when I tested it - maybe still unisex.

Although I would not be angry to notice it in an elegant and interesting gentleman.

I see myself in a midnight-blue velvet dress floating over the parquet with my talented dance partner - musically accompanied by the evergreen : She wore blue velvet ...

Peter holds me securely in his arms and we enjoy a soft sensual Slow Fox.
Sweet longing is aroused - by XS and the song.

I snuggle up to my dancer and the scent snuggles up to us.
Nothing is going to throw us off our game.
Sensual closeness floats around us - but only in dance are we one.

Afterwards we leave the parquet floor as good friends - and leave behind the aura of sweet longing.

And each of us carries the thoughts that are finally free, - and this deep scent to his home.

Sweet indeed
It’s not as “loud” as I was expecting it to be; the projection radius is about 2-3ft for the first 2 hours or so. For me I kind of get a “carbonated Versace Eros” feeling. Very sweet; almost a “lollipop” or “hard candy” vibe. Definitely for colder nights. If the heat is on, it would seem “sticky” because of that “hard candy” sensation it gives. Not something you can wear daily, or to work. I can see it working if you’re going to a party and you plan on drinking. That carbonated vibe is pretty persistent. Do NOT blind buy this. I personally like it, but it’s not for everyone. If you don’t like sweet scents like Versace Eros or Ultra Male, you will HATE it. This one is like you mixed those two together and carbonated the blend. The notes are mixed together in a way that you really cannot distinguish them individually; I think that’s where the “soda pop” feeling comes from. I’ll wear this occasionally; when I know it’s gonna be below 50 degrees, and I’m going out for a few drinks.

Edit: After wearing it out again it grew on me. Ultra Male is one of my favorites, and I think this one is like an improved version. They are VERY similar on my skin. The dry down is where this one wins (for me, personally). PXSN is more masculine in this phase, and a little bit “deeper” and more “dark”. I still love UM, but this one, in cold weather especially, leaves me feeling much more confident. It’s not as youthful. It’s like UM is the “sexy young boy”, and PXSN is the “experienced man who knows how”.

I’m definitely happy with this one, and I’m gonna rock it a little more.

Vanilla Explosion
Vanilla is an extremely great spice for fragrances (and also for ice cream *g*), the caramel I unfortunately do not smell out, but that's true, in the beginning it bites a little the fragrance, but if you let it mature enough and give time like a good wine then it's a really nice fragrance that can convince.

Spontaneously I would say the fragrance is for men from 25 - 35, but is only a rough estimate of me, I am now also no perfume crack who knows about it, but the vanilla dominates quite nice, but not bad, but really pleasant.

The Flanker is now rather unspectacular for me, I know far more beautiful, the glaß is massive, has a gradient from dark blue to black (from bottom to top), with a golden XS NIGHT logo on it, and a black lid.

The Shisabar scent
"Pure XS Night" is a mixture of "Le Male" and "Eros", only more aggressive, more sugary, with caramel glaze and still a fresh kick. Close to Origianl but a little darker, a little more mature, but sometimes even more prolific, if you want to express it badly. I still kind of like him. It is very tasty, super sweet, super young, surprisingly never too scratchy on my skin (with light dosage). If I would still (often) go to parties and make the Cologne rings insecure, for example - this one would be absolutely on the shortlist. Because that's where he belongs. Into nightlife and neon lights, to shishabars and sex seekers, close to clubs, twerkers and vodkaredbulls. But with over 30 years of age it is difficult to integrate it into your everyday life...

"Pure XS Night is a beast. An alpha male through and through. Only naive 16, but eggs to the ground. You have to smirk. "Pure XS Night" goes all in for its artificiality. A caramelized sugar coating with a little myrrh and lots of vanilla. He'll stand out, he'll wake you up, he'll want anything. Get rich or die. Like the original, I like it. Bad taste done right. He's got something trashy, something immature. Naughty, frivolous and ungentlemanly. Embodies everything that has made men's designer perfumes great (and infamous and notorious) in this decade. In contrast, the One Million from ten years ago looks almost like an elegant gentleman. Pure night, pure eroticism. Just fresh out of the slimy head of a half-breed. And that of course has neither style, experience, skill, nor real sex appeal. Nevertheless: whoever can wear it with self-confidence and a sweet nose (discreetly dosed in the best case), has stayed young, should do so. I don't see why not. I'd certainly like to a few years ago. He's not embarrassing. At least if you know how to wear it. The right outfit, the right location, the right clientele. More cheap than cheap. But you can definitely wear it with a wink. Extroverted and anti-elegant.

Flacon: thick glass, beautiful colour gradient, great sprayer. Jung meets Kitsch kisses edel.
Sillage & durability: a bumper for club and bar. Hardly stops. Nine hours. More like more.

Conclusion: a typical Paco Rabanne, with all its advantages and disadvantages. Tough, sweet, youthful, playful, sexy (to a certain extent). And all this squared. For the target group a synthetic caramel cracker that does exactly what it is supposed to do: stick, attract attention, attract attention, sugar everything and everyone. And at best, panties drop. But you have to take care that these panties don't have Hello Kitty and Co. on them..

Tastes may be different, but who wears a bite like this voluntarily?
It is well known that Paco Rabanne relies on those who project strongly in many of his fragrance creations and who are often offensive towards their fellow human beings. The XS Night is supposed to be a typical club scent. The bottle is relatively modern and captivates with a discreetly mystical blue exterior.
Let's get to the list of ingredients. Vanilla is included - already reads well. Cinnamon is here? Oh, very nice. Cocoa too? Look ... therefore the declaration as gourmadig-sweet scent.

Let's spray a small sprayer from the sample atomizer, which was enclosed with my delivery from a well-known online shop, onto my wrist.
Oh, it's loud. But it's not just loud. The opening is biting and brutal. I'm someone who doesn't find a slightly stinging beginning so disturbing, because after all I own the iris fragrance Prada L´Homme Intense, but this stinging synthetic nature doesn't let up at XS Night somehow. I know, of course, that you shouldn't judge a fragrance by its top note, but here I really feel the need to soap my wrist and treat it best with lye or sandpaper. However, I remain brave.

What is the next step?

Well, the synthetics remain, but the stinging, the biting, eases a little, but never in such a way that one could say it would be justifiable now. I actually smell the salted caramel slightly, as well as the vanilla. Otherwise, the fragrance remains surprisingly linear and retains its pungent top note character. It's about as exhausting as an iris scent retaining its top note. Who knows the iris bomb par excellence, Valentino Uomo Intense, should know how exhausting and penetrating this would be in the long run.

My conclusion:

One of the biggest failures of this brand. In the still quite nice looking bottle there is a sweet chemical broth with a pungent burning character, which gives the impression of wanting to kill everything within a radius of two meters - the Sillage is heavy ... unfortunately

Spicy in the opening, masculine and then in the dry-down turns sweet, lots of Vanilla, „Myrrh”, a touch of cacao and a spicy tone.
