Invictus Intense Cologne by Paco Rabanne, Invictus Intense by Paco Rabanne is a darker take on the original scent, Invictus . This daring blend has accords of amber, whiskey and fresh spice. The top notes start out strong with pepper and orange blossom to create a bracing, yet bright tone. As the middle notes sweep in, laurels and whiskey make their entrance to introduce a sophisticated freshness. The base notes linger on salt, amber and ambergris for a savory muskiness.
