Versace Pour Homme Dylan Blue ~ fragrance review

Versace Pour Homme Dylan Blue advert

Versace just released Versace Pour Homme Dylan Blue and Donatella Versace had this to say about it:

I have always believed men should be strong, passionate, proud, expressive, unafraid. I love that in today’s world, men feel able to reveal their true natures, to share their passions and their beliefs. It’s there in the fragrance, which is strong, fresh, seductive.1

Donatella grew up in ITALY. Italian men, including those in diapers and strollers, don’t exactly have a reputation for hiding their true natures, passions or beliefs. Who put these dumb words into Versace’s mouth? She grew up surrounded by brothers! Robin Here at NST™ had another take on Donatella, using Versace’s quote “I love how Dylan Blue captures such an evocative world of Versace masculinity.” Robin: Then, I picture her closing the door of her room, laughing, and counting her money.

I don’t know Ms. Versace personally (she seems nice enough in interviews), so I don’t relish her successes…or gloat over her failures…

Bunch o’ limited edition collector bottles (& some other stuff) 2016, part 9

More limited edition collector fragrance bottles, with the usual disclaimers: in most of these cases, the juice is unchanged, just the bottle is “special” (or not, as the case may be), and some of these may not be available in the US. Today’s post includes collector bottles from Tom Ford, Sisley, Yves Saint Laurent and Thierry Mugler; plus a new concentration of Versace Eros Femme.

Tom Ford Black Orchid Lalique

From Tom Ford, a limited edition of Black Orchid, with the bottle by Lalique (there was a version of this when Black Orchid first launched in 2006, and perhaps they are identical). $990 for (15 ml?) Parfum, available now for pre-order at Tom Ford

Versace Eros Pour Femme ~ perfume review

Versace Eros Pour Femme, fragrance packaging

The short version: Don’t bother.1

The long version:

“The customer who wants something Versace,” she says, “wants what Versace stands for.” — Donatella Versace2

Anyone who participates in the damage polls here knows that Donatella Versace has a thing for perfume. Of course, she’s also a businesswoman. The modern Versace fragrance line emphasizes the “business” part more than the “thing for perfume” part, which might explain why so few perfumistas want something Versace. I did think Versense was pretty good, and I still have some fondness for The Dreamer, but the rest of the line is a generic blur to me. Is there a Versace fragrance you love? Do comment…
