Versace Eros, a fragrance in a rather unusual bottle that knows how to please, may indeed be a fragrance for the young generation, for party-goers or admirers of sweets, but in my eyes it is by no means badly made. First it should be said that I cannot fully understand the declaration as "sweet-synthetic". He's cute - that's right. There's not much to shake about. But this sweetie is not as sticky, pseudogourmadige as you would find her in the brand new Stronger With You Intense by Armani ... just to give you an example. When carefully dosed, we are dealing with a sweet fragrance that also knows how to surprise with freshness. This is definitely due to the top note, which knows how to captivate with apple, mint and lemon. The blue party-goer (interesting wordplay :D by the way) is one whose top note you get enough of over the whole course of the fragrance. So we're not dealing with a head note tricker that encourages the rather naïve, spontaneously perfume-buying customer to buy, who often sniffs the test strip for a few seconds. Sure, the top note is somewhat pushed into the background at some point, but mint and apple can be smelt out at any time, so that the tonka bean, which is now incipient and is later complemented by the equally sweet vanilla, does not press too much and does not "stick" the fragrance. The mint and especially the apple always provide a certain airiness and I think that this all comes across quite naturally. This airiness, by the way, is what I lack in the red Versace Eros Flame. This one doesn't necessarily have a better durability, but it presses much more and has exactly this stickiness, which its blue, older brother doesn't have.
Conclusion: Versace Eros is a good, solid party fragrance that I clearly prefer to smell than 1 million or even Versace Eros Flame. Versace Eros Flame, the sticky-sweet, actually synthetic-looking colleague, seems here like the younger brother of the previously published blue Eros, who now wants to make even more of an impression than this one, thereby clearly overshooting the mark. The big, blue brother knows how to use his sweetness correctly and to contrast it with mint, apple and lemon at any time so as not to exaggerate it too much.
It's not my scent, because I feel too "old" for it with my almost 24 years old and a different style of dress than about six years ago, but it really doesn't deserve such devastating judgments. In the end, isn't it also or especially the wearer, here usually a teenager, who decides, especially by means of the dosage of a scent, whether it is perceived positively or not? The main problem in everyday life, especially with this fragrance, is rather the exaggerated fogging to attract attention in the club.
