Fresh off of their success with the launch of Phantom for men, Spanish fashion label, Paco Rabanne, has decided to launch a new fragrance inspired by the same design and idea as Phantom, but this time they call it Fame and it will be exclusively for women.
Playful. Sensual. Empowered. Irresistibly Parisian. She’s an icon. She’s a star. She’s FAME, the covetable new feminine fragrance by Paco Rabanne.
Embodied by a true icon, the young American actor Elle Fanning, the FAME woman is the very essence of Paco Rabanne’s femininity. As radiant, self-confident, and multi-faceted as the Couturier’s iconic muses, as ultramodern today as ever.Paco Rabanne Press Release
The concept behind Phantom was to give this futuristic and cosmic feel to the fragrance. Fame on the other hand, captures that elegant Parisian spirit emphasizing femininity and empowerment, a tribute to a new era for women, as the house puts it. American film and television star, Elle Fanning, was chosen to be the face of Fame. The house made sure to pick a vibrant young actress who best embodies the spirit they are trying to present.
To bring FAME to life, Paco Rabanne has called on one of the most exciting young actors of her generation: Elle Fanning
Elle is the quintessential FAME woman who’s shown the many facets of her persona in blockbusters like Maleficent (2014) as Princess Aurora, auteur cinema like Sophia Coppola’s The Beguiled (2017) and, more recently, in the Golden Globe-nominated Hulu Series The Great, where she embodies one of the greatest female rulers in history: Empress Catherine II.
Playful, sensual, empowered – aged 21,she was the youngest Cannes Festival juror in history – and fashion-forward, Elle Fanning couldn’t be a better choice to embody FAME and all its glittering facets.Paco Rabanne Press Release
The bottle retains that android theme, but this time, instead of a metallic black colour, a more delicate gold with silver crescents all around resembling an evening summer dress. The bottle is also refillable making it a true collectable item.
An ultra-desirable, daring piece of design. A quintessential expression of the brand’s avant garde style, reprising some of Paco Rabanne’s most iconic codes. As precious as a piece of jewelry. As covetable as the1969 bag. As playful as the ultramodern chainmail dress that has been worn by so many iconic women before her.
Because of course, FAME’s bottle is a “she”.
She’s metal, the signature material of the designer. She’s got The Dress. An assemblage of silver pastilles. She’s even got tiny piercings, for extra edginess. She’s got The Sunglasses. Cat’s-eye, because they’re the iconic accessory of the true star.Paco Rabanne Press Release

Paco Rabanne Fame Notes and Ingredients:
Fame Features top notes of Bergamot and Mango followed by heart notes of Jasmine and Frankincense and base notes of Vanilla and Sandalwood.
“The showrunners are some of the industry’s hottest names. The multi-talented team of perfumers Dora Baghriche, Marie Salamagne, Alberto Morillas, and Fabrice Pellegrin pooled their creative skills and peerless know-how to conceive a truly ground-breaking scent.
FAME features a star-studded cast of notes that have never played together in a fragrance. Lush, succulent mango. Delicate, airy, exceptionally pure jasmine. Addictive, sensual, creamy incense.
In fact, FAME’s incense is what makes it so very Paco Rabanne. Dora Baghriche, who originated the initial idea for the scent, explains:
“With its dazzling, spicy freshness, incense embodies a truly Paco Rabanne olfactory signature. To create a totally novel effect, I chose an explosive trio of incenses, wrapped in the addictive warmth of vanilla and sandalwood. To make it even more feminine, this creamy incense accord is brightened by a new quality of jasmine, naturally fresh and cheerful, and a delicious, colourful mango note. The result is the first contemporary incense for women, crafted with contrast and sensuality, highlighting the free and disruptive character of the Paco Rabanne woman.”
The result is a breakthrough composition – the first feminine creamy incense in perfumery. A scent as multi-faceted and thrilling as Paco Rabanne women’s past, present, and future. Because FAME isn’t about celebrity. It’s a feeling. It’s a thrill. It’s your fragrance.”
Paco Rabanne Fame is currently available on the official website in three different bottle sizes 30ml, 50 ml 100ml and 200 ml Refillable bottle Eau de Parfum.
