Paco Rabanne

Paco Rabanne

Shortly after Paco Rabanne established his fashion brand, Spanish group Puig acquired the license for Paco Rabanne perfumes in 1968, thus setting in motion decades of memorable fragrances bearing the Paco Rabanne name. From Calandre (1969), a bold floral that defied traditional perfumery, debuted in 1969. Its name took cute from the chrome-plated front grille of a Rolls Royce; its bottle, modern and monolithic in glass and metal, was inspired by the United Nations Headquarters in New York.
