OK, what scent is she talking about?

Recently, on Instagram, I saw Mayte promoting a candle that is for sale suporting the Love 4 One Another charity. She was talking about that there is a certain fragrance that is added to it that supposedly Prince wore a lot, but acted like she couldn't say the name of it. (At least that was the impression I got....)

Does anyone know what some of his favorite fragrances were? I am sure at least one was probably not " Pour Homme", knowing our little gender bender. So, your ideas and where you got the info?

Good morning children...take a look out your window, the world is falling...

Thanks for sharing, AZ. But we are no closer to the answer on this. Maybe I will just have to call Mayte, or Carmen, or Andy, or Manuela, or Kim, or someone and just ask them!

Oh dear. I had hoped this weren’t the case. That fragrance is but a shadow of itself in the new formulation. If anybody is going to buy it, do not buy the ‘clear’ version. Find 80s/90s vintage as it has real sandalwood.

Yup... but it is more floral now than it used to be (in my opinion). I don’t know that many men could pull off the latest reformulation.

i remember smelling it nice on him, but not hyperbolic so as many stories tend to make us believe.

Maybe so, but it's Paco Rabanne, pronounced Paco Rahbahn. One of the reason I love Moviestar and his making fun of american's way of mispronouncing anything from outside their country. (at least in my mind he's making fun of it) cool
