He's back in my possession. How many years ago did you let me hold him in my hands. How many times would I have wished I could see him again somewhere on a woman. Smelling this depth and opulence that drags this perfume like a metre-long train of unfiltered femininity behind it. Gianni Versace created his first women's fragrance in 1981 and it bore his name. What his creations did on the catwalks and the fashion world in those days may still be well known to some. Pomp and ceremony. Wild baroque patterns. Colour combinations in the brightest colours and facets. Gianni Versace became a shooting star and an icon in no time. I was lucky enough to experience it. It was time for his first perfume, and so he created the "woman" Gianni Versace. A few years later the "man" Versace L'Homme.

The scent
Gianni Versace starts with a drumbeat of aldehydes, but even in the still fresh and clear top note you can see very well where the journey is going. Namely too floral-spicy opulence. A noble squadron of flowers spreads over the wearer's skin. Each one already powerful and dominant in its own right, but two of them are particularly present. On the one hand the spicy carnation for me and on the other hand a waxy tuberose. You two are the leaders of this infernal seven-man team of flowery decadence. Since the heart note immediately follows the top note and the scent was already very complex by then, it is very difficult even for experienced noses to recognize transitions. But one thing is clear, nothing has been spared! What makes the fragrance so special for me is its dreamlike and timeless base note. She has an old, antique theater or a baroque ballroom. Incense in combination with waxy benzoin gives the impression that beeswax candles are burning everywhere. Heavy oakmoss and bitter leather spread a slightly appealing, spicy heaviness. A dry amber with a delicate cinnamon accord combined with resinous-sweet myrrh and a creamy sandalwood pervades Gianni Versace like an oriental veil of a thousand and one nights. In those days, perfume was a titanium among titans. Unique!

Conclusion
Wearing this fragrance was and still is a statement. He may be old, but he was already ahead of his time at that time and he is again today. Nowadays, for example, it is no longer noticeable next to a Roja Dove. All that still distinguishes him for a short time is the use of aldehyde, but that is gone just as quickly as one has noticed it. What follows is a milestone in perfume history. In my opinion it has become very difficult to distinguish a vintage from a modern niche these days, let alone walking by. The fragrance is still very wearable today, you just have to dare. Especially today, when everything has become interchangeable, it is all the more a niche. Gianni Versace Is not necessarily a scent for the office or work, but for a big evening like opera, gala or event it is still very spectacular and above all,.......timeless-elegant!

To feel the pulse of time, you have to know where to feel it!

Hard to Find, but Worth It
With a lot of honey and carnation, Gianni Versace (now called (GV Classic) is one of the most va-va-voom 1980s chypres. Very dressy.
