Longevity of Paco Rabanne 1 Million
The performance of this fragrance is great, it will last you for a full day easily, and we would consider it in the long-lasting category. You can count on at least 8 hours with good sillage and intensity while using it, after that the smell is more noticeable in close encounters.
The projection is excellent and is really meant for a club-type of fragrance. You will get noticed when you walk in a room, not extremely suitable for work or office as it can offend your surroundings with its large sillage area. The scent is very sweet as well, which can be overwhelming but very attractive.

We would say, if not oversprayed, even one spray of this fragrance could be enough for most people. It’s actually surprisingly versatile for a spicy and sweet scent.
Paco Rabanne 1 Million Smell & Notes
The main notes are spicy cinnamon, with a fresh citrus opening. This scent is dominated by its spicy components, while the rest of its touches rest on the subtler side.

1 Million is a powerful scent, the essence of the smell in general, is excellent to consider for a date, party, or other special occasions.
It is also worth mentioning that it tends to sell for a price point that favors the higher end of the spectrum. Overall, it is a good buy, but perhaps not the ideal scent to wear to work.
