Black XS Frangrances & "Be A Rock Star"

IMG_3043.JPG_effected
Pacco Rabanne frangrances have always been one of my favourites. I have even been prone to spritzing the mens "Million" before a night out (it smells nice okay). I'd seen the "Black XS" frangrance range in the shops, but hadn't ever given it a whiff. I don't tend to splash out on perfume's for myself. I think it's a mans job to provide a woman with a perfume... ;) (hint hint, men out there). I was recently sent the male and female version to go alongside their "Be A Rockstar" promotion.

Be A Rockstar is offering internet users exclusive musical content and the oppertunity to enjoy a unique experience and step into the shoes of a Rock Star. They will also be opening the doors to a catalogue of artists across the globe. Universal Music France will even be giving access to special backstage moments with its artists, including Cold War Kids, Two Door Cinema Club and Kaiser Chiefs. These bands will be taking part in special Black XS OFF Shows, where we can see behind the scenes in nine special mini episodes. The series will be shown by the end of the year on
the site and on the Black XS YouTube channel. Click HERE to take you the website so you can see for yourself & get lot's more information if this is something you are interested in. I for one, am a massive fan of Two Door Cinema Club, so I will be tuning in to watch them.

I can't say I'm much of a Rockstar but the perfume is DELICIOUS. Pacco Rabanne describes the female version as "an elixir of seduction wreathed in mystery. A scent of contrasts, with an exciting ambiguity" - Written and described so much better than I ever could. I also really like the bottle. It's a bit more on the Gothic/Rock side and may not be as delicate or quaint as others on my dressing table but I really like the scent. I would wear this more at night, as I feel it's not light enough for the daytime.

In true "boyfriend of a blogger" style, the mens version was swpied up (very quickly) by my boyfriend. He has used it ALOT, and that's really all I have to go by. I really like the mens version, and he does smell EXTREMELY nice when he's wearing this. In fact, I'd even go as far as to say I prefer the mens frangrance to the womens one...and that's the same with the "Million" range. If you're stuck for what to get your fella for Christmas, I'd strongly advise this scent if you like your man to smell delicious. Although, I do appreciate something like aftershave is down to personal taste, but I don't think you can go wrong here.

  26. I agree that it is a mans job to provide perfumes haha! I enjoyed the post, but with my experience with this perfume is that it was very over powering and made me feel horribly sick, so i ended up giving it to someone who likes it more than me, never the less that is only my opinion :) Keep on blogging Zoe :)

  41. Completely agree - I've gone through 3/4 of the women's one and used the mens one for over a year before the woman's one even came out in 2007! Never found anything I like more. I do actually prefer the mens one I think but I felt a bit mental buying it after ours came out. Makes guys smell bloody awesome though.

    Love your blog, your writing is fantastic.

  42. Life can be very displeasing especially when we loose the ones we love and cherish so much. in this kind of situation where one loses his/her soul mate there are several dangers engage in it. one may no longer be able to do the things he was doing before then success will be very scarce and happiness will be are. that person was created to be with you for without him things may fall apart. That was my experience late last year. but thank god today i am happy with him again. all thanks goes to Dr. EDIONWE, i was nearly loosing hope until i saw an article on how Dr. EDIONWE could cast a love spell to make lovers come back. There is no harm in trying, i said to my self. i contacted him via email: edionwesolutiontemple@yahoo.com. words will not be enough to appreciate what he has done for me. i have promised to share the good news as long as i live.

  44. An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my wife back to me..
    My name is Andy Sowers,i live in Australia,and I'm happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids.A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife.so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce.she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she didn't love me anymore.So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again.
    So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife.So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.{osobaspelltemple@gmail.com }.
    So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who didn't call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster.
    So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website {osobaspelltemple@gmail.com },if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back.
    So thanks to the osobaspelltemple@gmail.com for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again.

  45. Be careful here nobody can help you here or even suggest how you can get your ex or love back,any testimonies of most spell caster here must be ignore.because most of them are scam i mean real scam which i was a victim and i got ripped of thousands of dollars because i was so anxious to get my wife back after she left me for over 2 years with my 7 years old son jerry,i have applied to 7 different spell caster here and all to no avail they all ask for same thing send your name your ex name address and picture phone number etc which i did over and over again and most of them were from west Africa until i saw a post about mama Anita spell and i decided to gave her my last trail.she ask me four things my real name,my ex and my ex mother name and $180 and said my ex will come back in 24hours, i have paid over $3000 on spell casting and courier and nothing have work for me after 3 days i was thinking about how much i have lost so far so i said let me give her a try so i called her again and send my real name,my ex and my ex mother name and the $180 because i swear it was my last try so i was waiting as she told me to wait till next day and i could not sleep that night because i really love my wife and want her back at 9pm that day i saw my wife on line on face book and she said hi at first i was shock because she never talk with me for the past a year and 9 month now i did not reply again she said are you there? i quickly reply yes and she said can we see tomorrow i said yes and she went off-line i was confused i try to chat her again but she was no more on line i could not sleep that night as i was wondering what she is going to say, by 7.am the next morning she gave me a miss call i decided not to call back as i was still on shock again she call and i pick she said can we see after work today i said yes so she end the call immediately i got off work she call me and we meet and now we are back again i call mama anita the next day thanking her for what she has done in fact i still call her and thank her as my life was not complete without my wife please be careful here i have been scam thousands of dollars if you want a true love spell then contact mama Anita (mama.anitatruelovespell@gmail.com)

  46. My name is Vanell from USA.i never believed in love spells or magic until i met this spell caster once. when i went to Africa in March 17th 2013 this year on a business summit. i met a man called DR Samura. He is powerful he could help you cast a spells to bring back my love’s gone,misbehaving lover looking for some one to love you, bring back lost money and magic money spell or spell for a good job.i am now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 3 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 2 years… i really loved him, but his mother was against me and he had no good paying job. so when i met this spell caster, i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him..at first i was undecided,skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. and in 6 days when i returned to taxes, my boyfriend (is now my husband ) he called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married..i didn’t believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do… well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid,and my husband also got a new job and our lives became much better. in case anyone needs the spell caster for some help, email address{SAMURATELLERSPELL100@YAHO.COM} OR CALL HIM +2348103508204.
    he will solve all kinds of problems for you and you shall be happy for good..
