Certificate of participation, if applicable
You can hardly get past "Invictus" at the moment. Whether you have children in the advertised target group 15-25 around him or but colleagues, every second trainee, intern or working student smells of similar fragrance chords. And Paco Rabanne of course continues to ride this zeitgeist wave until it breaks ... or the person who has to smell it. Every year they delight us with either a "collector's edition" of the triumphant flacon or with a flanker. Now we are promised a particularly intense spicy variation of the "classic", which finally gives the wearer the end... ,#pfui, the final victory. After the predecessor has already dropped all panties, one wants to finally crack the high score of received compliments.

Black comes the familiar box now around the corner, black is also the content. Nix more of because of bling-bling. Discreetly black appears the cup, yet more reminiscent of an old, burnt-out cylinder head. If it weren't for the discreet golden "V", the well-known sign of victory. Those who celebrated the beloved silver bottle will have fun with this one, too. Heavy it is yes, the cup, there might be the plastic attachments around the atomizer but also like something more solid worked, then the overall impression would be right again.

A push on the atomizer and all expectations are met. A familiar maritime accord of citrus, lavender and peppery notes creates the usual freshness, unfortunately again in a somewhat artificial expansion stage. A green accord - is it lavender? - tries to play itself into the foreground, not at all wrong, but regrettably cannot assert itself. Because after just under an hour, the sweetish notes are already pushing in, vanilla and tonka are relentless. It becomes sweet, sticky and that for me again in a synthetic way, as one knows it unfortunately from cheap air fresheners from the drugstore and fragrance trees for the car. Here "Invictus Victory" tilts me in an unpleasant direction, which manifests itself over hours. After 10-12 hours the scent retreats into the skin and if you sniff the drydown, you'll be surprised to find that next to the fading sweetness, there's still something pleasantly spicy lurking, which was previously imperceptible and certainly not nameable. A pity actually, now that it slowly starts to become exciting and beautiful, it's already over again. Even in two further test sessions, I can't find out what it is. Is it the incense accord, which I could not perceive before? No idea.

While currently many designer fragrances with very decent durability and radiation for displeasure worries, "Invictus Victory" is here on the winning track. Good 10-12 hours he radiates his sweet notes very clearly and vehemently and even the next morning are still fragmentary remains to sniff. That is nowadays already once not to despise.

Maritime fresh notes and exuberant sweetness, the secret of success with the current target group. It is delivered and that is celebrated. For this a cup! At older semesters see this fragrance rather not. People are neither after these striking fragrances nor a trophy for the shelf. There must be room for quite different status symbols.

With me, "Invictus Victory" once again can not take a victory. Also for a certificate of honor it will not quite be enough. But no sooner did I take my A-levels in those days than certificates of participation were introduced. Yes, apart from all the precious metal, a certificate of participation is probably OK for a black trophy. On their back you can then make a tally sheet with the received compliments or note the numbers of the ladies, if the one does not immediately drag in your bower.

Definitely nothing groundbreaking or innovating,
But nothing horrible or repulsive either. Attention; to everyone that was begging for the “bubblegum vibe” to be removed from the Invictus line, it has been. It’s absolutely nowhere to be found in this flanker. But those who don’t like the sweet scents are absolutely going to roll over and die from this one. Start to finish, it is a fragrant sugar rush like nothing you’ve experienced. (Okay, you HAVE experienced it before, it’s very similar to Armani Profumo)

It feels like an ice cream sundae, and it radiates with a massive radius and sillage trail. Easy 3-4ft on the radius, and sillage sits and lingers for a LONG time. Longevity is great as well, making it to the 8 hour mark with no problem.

I get a very creamy, almost caramel-esque vibe, and the more it dries down, the more it kind of morphs from a buttery caramel feel to a kind of chocolate feel. Not a hot fudge, but more like a hot chocolate or chocolate ice cream feel.

It’s not mind blowing, but it’s not as bad as some are saying it is. If you like the sweets, take a peek, if not, run far, FAR away.

Personally, I find the fragrance more than wonderful, and what increases its splendor is its base, which is based on frankincense and lavender

The opening is quite good, citrusy and peppery with a hint of lavender. The drydown is an awful mess of spices, smoke and sweet vanilla.

Nondescript sweetness, a hint of bubblegum along with vanillic accords and pepper on top. Very syrupy, cloying, synthetic.

A surprising good slightly smoky and creamy vanilla with a fresh lemony top. Not super thick, quite easy to wear. Pretty decent. 3/5

Little to do with Invictus, a solid if not unique, vanilla based scent, kind of leathery-powdery in the mid after a fresh intro.Then sweet.

smells 80% similar to Antonio Banderas Black Seduction. Took me a time to put my finger on it but It has a definite similarity.
