I've always loved a perfume with a rock 'n' roll attitude, and Paco Rabanne's Black XS has been up there on my love-list since my days as a teenage Christmas temp on the perfume counter at Debenhams! Whilst my own rock 'n' roll edges may have softened somewhat over the years (piercings, gigs and vodka have been replaced by nail art, early nights and coffee), Black XS is still embracing its inner rockstar in a big way - and allowing you to do so too.
Paco Rabanne has partnered up with Universal Music in creating a unique musical platform, Be A Rockstar. The Be A Rockstar website,www.be-a-rockstar.com, offers exclusive music content and one of the largest catalogues of artists in the world. Universal Music France will even be giving access to some backstage moments with its artists.
The website also allows users instant access to exclusive interviews and live performances, featuring some of the music industry's coolest cats, including Cold War Kids and Two Door Cinema Club. This nine part series - the Black XS OFF Shows - will be aired on www.be-a-rockstar.com as well as the Black XS YouTube channel towards the end of this year, so keep your eyes peeled.
More excitingly, the website also offers users the chance to step into the shoes of a rockstar themselves - simply upload a photo of yourself and be amazed and enthralled by the Be A Rockstar Experience... Seriously, if you have a few minutes I really recommend trying it out. It had Alex and I in stitches, and we are usually the first to call a cringebomb when we see one! So if you like to giggle (and ROCK, obvz), trust me on this one. Go to www.be-a-rockstar.com/uk/experience to try it out.
Here are some pics of the website in action and Two Door Cinema Club being all cute and interviewy:
Let me know if you have a go on the rock star experience, and what you think of the interviews and Black XS OFF shows!
