Vesace The Dreamer Cologne Review

Posted by Dimitri on Mon, 09/24/2018 - 3:12 PM

The legacy of Gianni Versace is vast and enduring. Hallowed for popularising the Baroque, his designs are immediately recognisable. He was revered as a visionary and a dreamer. There's no surprise then, that he named one of his iconic masculine fragrances Dreamer, because he was always looking at mythology and astrology for inspiration.

The Dreamer harnesses two main components beautifully: lavender and tobacco.  It is this marriage that gives The Dreamer its sensational winning appeal. Sweet tobacco and aromatics cartwheel over a heart of iris, carnation and geranium and a base of vetiver, tonka and cedar. (Lovers of D&G Homme will appreciate the Dreamer too.) A favourite amongst men and women that places a bookmark firmly between the pages of the 90s, this Versace creation is revered as one of the best from this highly celebrated brand.

Romantic, rousing and timeless, The Dreamer is proof positive that perfumery is indeed an art, and that Gianni VersaceÕs innovation reaches well beyond his lifetime; and his sight, far beyond the stars.

Versace Dylan Blue Cologne Review

Posted by Dimitri on Fri, 04/06/2018 - 6:46 PM

Join the BLUE revolution! In July 2016, following the global success of Bleu de Chanel, Versace shot out of the gates with their answer to Chanel’s world-wide phenomenon: Dylan Blue. In an increasingly competitive market, this fragrance is just one of a handful of scents launched in an attempt to capture a portion of the Bleu de Chanel market (another being Christian Dior’s Sauvage), and indeed the similarities between the two don’t just end with the name!

Dylan Blue is a masculine aimed at the youth market… it opens with fresh citrus and creamy fig, and transforms into a heart of violet, patchouli and black pepper which simmer over a base of musk, tonka, incense, and saffron. Presented in a square-shouldered cobalt flacon with gold Medusa seal, it has striking presence both in terms of looks and smell. A great scent to transition seamlessly from day to night, Dylan Blue holds a little of the mystery of the twilight hour… it is suitable for both the office and for the evening. For those who love the afore-mentioned style of scents (or perhaps Paco Rabanne’s Invictus), Dylan Blue will tick all the right boxes.

This strong Versace offering has a linear development which means what you smell upon application is pretty close to how it will smell some 5 or 6 hours later. With impressive projection, Dylan Blue has presence and impact, without being brash or loud. It has a sense of feeling squeaky clean, but without the soap suds! Perfect for gifting!

Versace Crystal Noir eau de parfum is a luscious yet light fragrance with top notes of blackcurrant, black fig and violet to start out airy and fruity.  Middle notes introduce tuberose, frangipani and jasmine to make it floral and feminine.  Sandalwood, vanilla, and heliotropine round the scent out keeping it polished but not overbearingly sweet.  Because of the light and floral nature of Crystal Noir, it is perfect for spring and summer.  Reach for this fragrance to take you away on a tropical vacation, if only for a moment, many say they even smell a hint of coconut.  Although recommended for evening use, Crystal Noir would be fitting for any summer outing whether beach day or elegant party under the stars.
