Paco Rabanne is a French fashion house founded in 1966. Francisco “Paco” Rabaneda Cuervo, the Spanish-born fashion designer more widely known as Paco Rabanne, fled Spain with his family during the Spanish Civil War. Growing up in Paris, he is an architect by training, but he started his fashion career designing jewelry for other houses before trying his hand at clothing design. He used unconventional material such as metal, paper, and plastic for his Metal Couture and outlandish and flamboyant designs.

The house’s first perfume is the now-legendary women’s scent Calandre, introduced in 1969. A series of innovative fragrances in distinctive bottles for both men and women have followed. In 1968, he began collaborating with fragrance company Puig, which resulted in the company marketing Rabanne’s perfumes. In 1976, the company built a perfume factory in Chartres, France.

With bestselling fragrances like 1 Million, Lady Million, XS, Olympéa and Invictus to his name, it’s little wonder that fashion designer Paco Rabanne has become a leading creative brand in the world of fragrance. From the launch of his first fragrance in the late 60s, the Paco Rabanne fragrance line has gone from strength to strength over the decades – take a look at our collection and find your perfect scent.

From 1996 – 20 years ago – Primor Cosmetics is the exclusive distributor of the brand in Hungary.
