Neroli Love
A very nice citric fresh scent. The opening is what makes the fragrance so special, I think there are few people who would not like the opening. After that the scent becomes creamier and you notice the influence of the cedar and tonka bean The fragrance lasts about 5-6 hours on me, but it projects about 1 hour well My evaluation looks like this:

Opening: 9.5/10
Dry Down:8/10
Shelf life: 6/10
Sillage: 6/10
P/L: 9/10

Dreaming of Some Secret Mediterranean Cove
Honestly, I don't understand how so many people find a connection with Chanel's Allure Homme Sport, they are two perfumes aside; indeed, they are not twin brothers. Have you tested them side by side? Yes, I did it. Assuming that the myriad of fragrance blogs are accurate, these two guys share a few notes in common, such as neroli, cedar, amber, musk, and tonka bean, which might be a good reason for smelling alike, but it is not enough. Right off the bat, they feel almost identical in the opening, no question about it. The similarity is shocking, but the dry downs are entirely different. However, once you get past that, Versace Pour Homme advances into a beautiful fresh scent. Unlike Allure Homme Sport which expands to powdery vanilla, Versace Pour Homme develops into something that reminds me of an aquatic. It's not as complicated as Acqua di Gio, and maybe not even Cool Water, but it has a perfect fresh opening that is very similar to Allure Home sport. That's it.

Let's talk about perfume. What makes this scent outstanding is its mix of Mediterranean and aromatic notes, which inspires calm in the middle of chaos and gives you the confidence you need to get the job done.
The aromatic fougère scent starts with fresh and citrusy notes of lemon, bergamot, and neroli, along with orange leaves, I deem a sort of petitgrain. This stage is surely zesty, both peels, blossom, and leaves are all from citrus plants. The opening smells a bit synthetic and sharp, but I find that only to be the case in the colder season. In the warmer days, which is when you should be wearing this fragrance, the sharpness of the opening yields a much more pleasant citrusy, floral, and fresh scent, which is simply gorgeous, making the first half hour smell like a day in Eden. The neroli is enjoyable, I can imagine a cascade of some kind, with the purest water ever, falling on soil full of flowers and freshly cut fruit.

The fragrance proceeds with leafy and floral center notes of clary sage, hyacinth, geranium, and cedar. If you are anything like me, you cherish the scent of fresh hyacinth, so impressive, carnal, sensual, narcotic, with vegetal aquatic accents, here blended with aromatic sage and pelargonium, and a touch of wood. It slowly develops into something more sophisticated; the beautiful clary sage and hyacinth are stabbing, but nicely eased by the cedar woods and white musk in the background. At this stage, there's also a wonderful salty vibe emerging, making me dream of some secret Mediterranean cove.

The closing is just as enjoyable, with a still fresh but more luscious, floral, and muskier tone. I get an undeniable pure sweetness coming from Tonka and amber, which is balanced by clean musk. A very tidy and sharp scent. The musk comes out too from the very beginning, which adds a whole masculine edge to it. The latest stage is all dry woods and white musk, with the salty feeling still being there, making you feel like you bathed in the secret cove, and dried yourself under the sun, gently lying on the sand.

In terms of sillage and longevity, on my skin, I get about the entire workday, and while it's not a sillage monster, it projects enough to be noticeable in a crowd. It turns a skin scent after around a few hours for me. It's suitable for men from the age of early 20heir late 50s.

Overall a great fresh scent for the more casual occasions. It is an exotic and unique fragrance that is ideally suited for a night out on the town. This is not for miserable wallflower at a boisterous party, wear it if you want some attention. This cologne I will buy over and over again, there's just something about it to me that sets it apart from the generic.

The beautiful Valkyrie
My girlfriend is a real Birte - real blond, strong hair, blue eyes, tall and sporty - in short a nordic beauty.

She already went to Gyms when these "Muckibuden" were found in rough basement floors where only "angular" men sweated.

I accompanied her, anxiously, into this unknown man's world, where she was greeted with joy and collegiality - but I had to content myself with fluff and astonished glances.

My strong girlfriend casually lifted 120 kg - and I was full of admiration, the "wild guys" full of recognition.

She called herself "Brunhild the Valkyrie".
With a wink, of course.

Of course, she only wore men's fragrances - and with preference Versace pour Homme.

And the fragrance also has an attractive androgynous note - tending towards the Nordic through the cool neroli.
Bergamot paired with wood reminds of the harsh beauty of the archipelago and fjords.

Even pour Homme remains as clear as the Scandinavian air.
Amber and Oud don't complain about the fragrance, because there is a fresh breeze through the resin.

This impression was a perfect match for my "Viking wife".

I would like to know if she still wears this distinctive fragrance today because it was a well chosen signature.

Such a bright, shiny freshness;
It shines with such a “lightness”... from the first time I got a whiff, I knew I wanted it. From the intro to the dry down, it just shines with its light “color”.

Longevity doesn’t carry on me very long, but luckily this can be found at a relatively inexpensive price, so I go for the re-application every 4 hours or so.

The women LOVE it, and it’s light enough to wear to work, or as a signature scent. Fantastic in every facet. Definitely work every penny.

So Fresh and Clean Versace Pour Homme
SOTD: Versace Pour Home: As of 01/08/19

What can I say about this fragrance, is fresh and clean scent very different to Dylan Blue, is almost a versatile an all seasons scent to me, but fragantica considered this a spring and summer scent. To my nose scent the bergamot, lemon, tonka bean and neroli really well balanced and blended. I can't wait to wear this during spring and summer season. Is a must have as well.

Rating

Scent: 8/10
Presentation/Design: 8/10
Longevity: 8.5/10: lasted on skin/skin scent around 12+ hrs 3-4 sprays on my skin
Value: 8/10
Overall: 8/10

SOTD (Scent of the Day): Versace Pour Homme EDT: As of 01/27/19

Versace Pour Homme EDT was the SOTD as of 01/27/19, beginning to love the scent more than the Dylan Blue, Versace Pour Homme is not as piercing/sharp as Dylan Blue in the opening, just a fresh, simple mellow scent to my nose from start to finish.

Longevity/Performance: Lasted on my skin/skin scent around between 10-12+ hrs

I'm going south somewhere - maybe to Canada or something. Mehmet Scholl
If one wants to go to the south, then there is actually only this smell which must go with.
Such aquatic freshness is rare. The mediterranean atmosphere is only a supplement for this top aquatist. Many would-be Southerners are all shamelessly exposed when this real talent shows up.
Here one can confidently speak of a home advantage of the Italians.
There are many lines that follow the same theme, but again and again I come across the scents of Versace which all perfectly combine freshness with pleasure.
Neroli, lemon and orange are recognizable in the prelude. Then the cedar wood, which I as a proponent of this direction very much like.
Whether it's the ingenious Blue Dylan, the good Eros or this older pour homme, nobody has anything repulsive or a little too much in their mix. All are well tuned.
Versace lhomme, over twenty years old, and Versus, launched shortly afterwards, were also very good products. The new ones are the same.

This pour homme reminds me remotely of the Versus, probably the sandalwood and the cedar which give me this Deja vu.

For shelf life it is a day companion, depending on the temperature, in hotter conditions it lasts very long, in cooling it stays in the background.

Once again a compliment to EurotIalia who have the nose to create good fragrances at an attractive price.

The friendly, trustworthy and versatile companion.
I only review scents I like. Consequently my opinions are generally positive or enthusiastic.
With Versace Pour Homme I have a relationship that many men appreciate. It's not a relationship of passion but one made of brotherly love and trust. It has been a friend for quite some time and in whom I can safely rely. We rarely meet, but when that happens I feel the joy of being with someone who never lets me down and that it's there always for me. It is a comfy friend and I value its friendship and loyalty.
Alberto Morillas is to be congratulated for this fine work. He designed a fragrance with a scent opening similar to Chanel Allure Home as well as versatile and alluring.
"Pour Homme" is a versatility king. It's not an overly complex perfume so the reason for its success must reside elsewhere. It proposes a citrus opening, a woody middle stage and a semi sweet creamy musky end.
The ingredients must have top quality and the blending is totally harmonious.
The sillage and projection are slightly under average, and the longevity is average for the listed notes. Actually the performance is in line with what you may expect from this type of scent. Mr. Morillas is never obcessed with high perfomance for his creations.
This fragrance is fresh enough for summer wearing and woody/sweet/musky enough to ensure success in tempered or even in mild cold spring and fall days.
I just regret this friend of mine not to have a younger brother called "Pour Homme Intense EDP".

How do I measure my relation with this fresh friend?
___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___
Opening: 8.25 (nicely fresh citrus and neroli)
Scent Dry Down: 8.00 (still fresh but woodier)
Longevity: 6.5 (3 good sprays may last 4~5 hours)
Sillage: 6.5 (3~4feet at its peak with just 3 sprays)
Uniqueness: 7.5 (It follows the steps of Polge's Allure Homme Sport and has a myriad of look alikes, but it's almost unique in it's quality and blending versus price)
Wearability: 9.0 (avoid winter nights and extreamly cold days)
Versatility: 9.5 ("all around" versatile fragrance although some specific fragrances may be better for specific environments like intimacy, dates, night out, clubbing, events, leisure, casual gatherings, office, gymn, beach, outdoor activities in hot days, but not in cold days or nights; however "Pour Homme" addresses all the situations)
Compliments: 8.5 (This fragrance it's not a dominant compliment magnet just due to is medium performance, but will please everybody except the fragrance trolls that rated its scent with a zero)
Quality: 9.0 (Well above average quality, quality ingredients, nice flask, nice sprayer)
Presentation: 7.50 (no faults, but quite common)
Price: 8.0 (100 ml non tester for € 32 + shipping; It costs 1/3 of the price of its "alter ego" from Chanel)
___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___
Overall rating: 8.10/10.00
- between 7 and 8 =above average;
- between 8 and 9 = recomended;
- bigger than 9 = don't miss it;

Advice: If you are looking for a very versatile fresh fragrance. In this range of price, there are not many as versatile as this one with a good brand name. On top of it, it does attract compliments. The downside is its average or under average performance.

Once through the spray mist
I always associate this fragrance with this pleasant, refreshing feeling of freshness when you walk through a spray of water in hot weather. It envelops and refreshes in a surprising, penetrating and carefree way.
That's why it's a perfect summer scent for me. If I apply it at warm or hot temperatures, I immediately feel a very attractive and cool freshness.

Fragrance:
For me there is actually no real course, but from the start a very synthetic-fresh overall impression, which remains unchanged. This is made up of two components: On the one hand, there is a soft floral-fruity note - slightly in the citric direction - and on the other hand, there is a soft spicy note, which later becomes somewhat woody. Together they are underpinned by a cool-mineral - almost aquatic - and perceptibly musk-clean tone.
The components are very well matched to each other, act as synthetic total melange and are used in a restrained manner overall. This makes the fragrance harmonious, light and permeable. It gives the impression of radiant, slightly cool, masculine, but at the same time gentle, clean freshness, which gets a very attractive note from the musk Its fragrance character is very similar to that of Chanel's Allure Homme Sport, although not so aromatic, slightly airier and a little fresher. If you like the Chanel but don't like the increasing aroma and the resulting freshness - and don't mind synthetic scents - the Versace is the better choice for you.

Durability and Sillage:
On my skin the scent stays well perceptible for 5-6 hours, whereby the radiation in the first half hour is quite clear and then quickly retreats just above skin level.
Repeated after-spraying for unclouded fragrance enjoyment is therefore necessary, but also completely harmless, as overdosing is not possible due to the permeable character.

Availability:
For me it is universally applicable with warm and hot temperatures, since the smell leaves a maintained and very fresh impression At cooler temperatures, it can no longer play off its enveloping fresh effect and is somewhat too synthetic.
Furthermore, due to its very bright, radiant, rather youthful character, it might fit a bit better to a casual dress style, but it's also not inappropriate for a suit.

Result:
With Pour Homme, Alberto Morillas, one of the most famous perfumers of fresh fragrances in particular, has created what I consider to be a perfect, fresh and "young" fragrance for Versace. It may be too smooth for some, too synthetic and too mainstream for others. But if you "only" want to smell fresh and pleasant without annoying others, then there is hardly a better choice for me

The cyclist among fragrances
Undoubtedly a fine citric scent with an aquatic undertone and a slight herbal note. That's what I smell. But musk, oud and tonka bean? No way! You can spray it on warm summer days and beyond without hesitation, but Versace pour Homme lacks something special in my eyes. Bad tongues could say: "I rub lime on myself and it's good!" ;-) Now I personally like citric scents very much and therefore there is no reproach in this direction.

Nevertheless, I find it astonishing that the name "classic men's perfume" of a brand like Versace is so citric. Now it's only 10 years old, this perfume construct. But somewhere else it would probably be called "Pour Homme Sport Eau Fraiche" ;-) In general, I somehow lack the olfactory base with a few woody and spicy notes and an individual touch.

If some other scents were beers, this one would be a cyclist with an extra dash of lemon. If one takes gladly on hot summer days with the contemplation in the beer garden. But with the sun setting I would prefer a Belgian Leffe or Irish Guiness! ;-)

Fresh blue perfume that opens with the usual citruses and then dries down to a more woody scent. It's a bit floral and musky. Quite nice.
