Techno Blonde
Blonde is (was) a knockout tuberose. As if Donatella took Fracas and glamorized it; a bit of blush here, a bit of shadow there...Fracas dressed for a party, 50 years later. So where do you go when you come from the 40's and you suddenly time travel to the 90's? My bet? A private party.

Leaving aside the obvious, Blonde is a massive buttery tuberose, far more buttery than any other, to the point of turning nutty. Rich, full on cream with a side of gardenia, ylang ylang and pitosporum, a tiny white flower with huge scent. But how do you balance such headyness? Throw in some spicy carnation, a dollop of civet, a hint of narcissus and you have Versace Blonde; better than what Fracas was in the late 80's/early 90's. Massive sillage, day long longevity and a joyous laugh; after all you were modeled after the Queen but just in a different era. Younger, naughtier, sexier, Blonde throws its narcotic spell without a worry in the world. Sensual, decadent, narcotic, this tuberose is not for the faint of heart. It takes some appreciation to enjoy and discover the glamour behind.

But like most good things, Fracas was suddenly resurrected and brought back in a good as ever shape. And Blonde had to leave. I guess there wasn't room enough for two. Highly sought and still around if you search hard enough, Blonde is one of the better Versace's, and the one I enjoy the most. If you love tuberose and white florals try and give Blonde a try; decadent and glamorous, narcotic and sexy, it wouldn't disappoint Germaine Cellier had she been alive.

A hymn to Tuberose
This powerful scent dedicated to "the blonde", Donatella Versace, is a real hymn to the tuberose and to the
" Alpha women" who can wear this opulent flowery bouquet
It is strange that in the years of minimalism Versace has created this rich perfume more similar to the 80s perfumery fragrances.
Anyway,blonde or not, if you feel a leader and if you want that people don't forget your sillage, wear this scent!

One big, naughty tuberose
Blonde is one absolutely humongous white floral, featuring tuberose and gardenia presented as loudly as one can stand. With that being said, I've fallen in love with its blatant loudness, and can certainly see how Blonde can become addictive after a few wearings.

It's like a big, tuberose and gardenia bouquet when you first spray Blonde. There's also a touch of moist greenness that lures you in. I drew in my breath with how intense yet captivating the top notes were to my nose and senses.

For those that found the top notes a little strong for their tastes, they'll be happy to know that the heart is much softer, however I should add that the sillage remains relatively strong. A touch of spiciness and rich, animalistic civet and benzoin can be found peeking through in the heart, which adds some dimension and sensuality to the boisterous white florals.

More often than not, white florals tend to be rather reserved and politely feminine, however Blonde's intention is to be the odd one out. Excuse what I'm about to say, but this fragrance is pure sex. A few sprays of this before bed is enough to entice any man, of that I'm sure. It's more naughty than nice.

Thick and buttery, there are some similarities between Blonde and Fracas, however I much prefer this fragrance over and above the very popular Robert Piguet offering. Perhaps I like my tuberose scents loud and proud, and a tad vulgar.

As you may have guessed, the sillage is a heavy hitter, and the same goes with the longevity. I haven't found anything irritating in Blonde as of yet that would discourage me from wearing it again. I have spent the entire day smelling of sensual white flowers and I have enjoyed every minute of it.

For Grise as well
I’ve railed against the soliflor before (see Fracas) but I must stand up for Blonde. I blind-bought the extrait and was surprised to find the closest thing to tuberose flower I’ve ever smelled out of a bottle. It perfectly captures a Philip Glass-like cycle of flower, bitterness, sweetness, rottenness. The extrait holds close to the skin after the first ten minutes, when it performs for the wearer and intimates only.

Fat and formidable, voluptuous and unreachable..
Thick, huge, sweet flowerbomb! I seem to get a peachy note too, or apricot (I can't tell those apart). The fruit is mostly directly from the bottle, on skin it's definitely flowers. To me the bergamot comes out after this burst when the sweetness vanishes - over the first ½ hour or so. Hereafter the benzion and especially neroli stand out. It turns sour-ish spicy. The civet is hardly detectable, but supports the other notes very well. This is not a dirty, animalistic, raw-sex perfume to my nose. It's "dressed" if you know what I mean. The formidable, rich mother-in-law, the exectutive that makes men pull out her chair for her without them even knowing they do it. It's a huge, shiny Mercedes with tinted windows. This is how it changes its personality over time. Definitely class!

For Blondes and Brunettes alike--provided they delight in big bodacious bouquets...
Before reviewing Versace BLONDE, I may as well simply confess that I steered clear of Versace perfume offerings for years as a result of my fairly longstanding view that Donatella is empirically indistinguishable from a drag queen just sprung from rehab.

How wrong I have been! My goodness, BLONDE is a beautiful perfume, which I impulsively purchased blind on the strength of the positive reviews here at Fragrantica (it was also on sale...). In fact, this was my best blind buy in recent history: a gorgeous, sumptuous, floral perfume featuring tuberose but also several other detectable notes which make this composition both complex and unique. This is not a copycat of FRACAS.

When I received my .5oz bottle of extrait, I initially worried a bit, as the waft off the top (before application) was ever-so-slightly rank. Looking at the notes, I can attribute this sensation to the civet note. Happily, upon application, the various components of this perfume meld together perfectly and absorb into the skin to produce a rich and delightful scent with fairly big sillage and great longevity.

Highly recommended for blondes and brunettes alike--whether in or out of rehab--provided only that they adore big bodacious bouquets. As an added bonus, my cat likes this one a lot. Must be the tuberose...(-:
