Versace Eros Eau de Parfum is a woody fragrance made for men by perfumer Olivier Pescheux. The aroma is created for those who love to be excessive and appreciate the finer things in life. The luxurious scent has a bright citrus tone that lingers through every layer, but the final dance with smoky leather and sweet vanilla is where it gains its powerful allure.
The Most Important Thing About This Product Is…
As soon as you spray this scent it feels energising; the invigorating opening of Italian lemon, mandarin, mint oil, and candied apple settles pretty quickly, revealing a heart of geranium flower, clary sage essence (sourced from France) and ambermax.
The base is where you see Versace Eros’ sensuality and passion come into play. A woody combination merges cedarwood atlas and virginia with vetiver orpur essence (sourced from Haiti), patchouli coeur orpur essence (sourced from Indonesia), sandalwood, which trails into a creamy sweet leather and vanilla accord.
You Will Love This If…
If you or the man in your life loves fragrances loaded with vanilla, then this is a great choice. The citrus energy is fleeting and quickly moves into a much moodier dry down. The base still maintains a subtle hint of freshness but develops into a woody accord that’s simmering with creamy and sweet vanilla.
Eros Smells Similar To:
Eros’s sweet, sensual and woody tone reminds me of Dolce K Eau de Parfum, which has a similar feel and smell! K has vanilla creaminess in the dry down like Eros, even though there isn’t a vanilla note in K’s base.
Is Versace Eros Unisex?
Versace Eros is marketed towards men but I would definitely wear this fragrance myself; the dry down is so creamy and sweet, I love it!
What’s The Longevity Like?
The Eau de Parfum concentrate of this scent makes this fragrance really go the distance.
What’s The Story?
Versace Eros takes inspiration from passion and heroism, all Eros’ qualities, the Greek God of love. The fragrance is meant to also inspire these attributes in the man who wears it, with Donatella Versace herself saying that when she created this fragrance: “I envisioned a heroic, passionate man, almost a Greek god. The fragrance is made up of notes that express sensuality and power, an extreme force”.
What’s Special About The Bottle?
The bottle looks extremely premium, with deep blue glass decorated with cubic lines and the Versace logo bursting out the side. Sealed with a metallic gold cap that’s also embellished with the signature Versace logo.
