Versace’s range of colognes and perfumes for men are as bold and brilliant as its clothing and accessories. Here are five of the most popular Versace scents for men.


Versace is perhaps the most flamboyant of all Italian fashion houses. From the big print shirts to the gold medusa logo to the celebrity endorsements – Biggie Smalls was rarely seen without a pair of Versace shades – the brand has never wasted too much time on being conservative, and that’s why we love it. Versace’s range of colognes and perfumes for men is no different. They are almost exclusively masculine, musky and made for confident men striding into a party in Capri, negroni in hand. Here are five of the most popular Versace colognes and perfumes for men.

Versace Eros EDT

This is definitely not a fragrance for anyone who wants to blend in. Donatella Versace herself said this powerful eau de toilette evokes a ‘ heroic, passionate man, almost a Greek God’ – so it’s not for the faint hearted. Created by Aurelien Guichard and launched in 2012, this woody, oriental and fresh aroma has top notes of mint oil combined with green apple and Italian lemon for an exotic entrance, with geranium and Clary sage at its heart. Eros is certainly confident so keep it for that social occasion on a business trip or holiday where you want to get noticed. From $79.

Dylan Blue Pour Homme EDT


The first thing that strikes you about this eau de toilette is not the fragrance, it’s the bottle. It’s pure indulgence, with the gold Medusa logo contrasting the blue that looks like deep Mediterranean waters – the fragrance has a lot to live up to already. Thankfully Dylan Blue doesn’t disappoint, with a distinct woody, masculine aroma that is also fresh and aquatic. The smell is given a little more intensity thanks to the addition of heart of violet, black pepper and saffron, then there are citrus hints of bergamot and grapefruit, enriched with musky base notes, making this a good all-rounder while travelling. From $79.

Pour Homme EDT

This aromatic fougère, launched in 2008, is a fragrance with a distinctive Mediterranean scent. This is in part thanks to a medley of light and fruity top notes from bergamot, neroli, citron of Diamante and bitter orange leaves. These are balanced by deeper, more typically masculine base notes of amber and musk. The middle notes are slightly flowery, with geranium and blue hyacinth. It is a sophisticated eau de toilette that is aimed at a confident and self-assured man – ideal if you are an entrepreneur meeting contacts socially on a business trip. This is a versatile fragrance that can be worn every day. From $105.

Eau Fraîche


By now you may have twigged that much of Versace’s range of men’s fragrances tend to err towards the masculine rather than the more sporty, androgynous fragrances that have become fashionable. Eau Fraiche, launched in 2006, is one of the brand’s lighter, fresher fragrances, with sparkly top notes of white lemon and sweet and sour carambola, along with a more sensual musk and amber base. Olivier Cresp is the nose behind this fragrance and it is certainly a more crisp and contemporary eu de toilette – a good way to freshen up after a long flight. From $79.

Encens Suprême 

Coming from Versace’s Atelier fragrance line, this is one of Versace’s more upmarket scents and it shows. From the glass bottle, which looks like an antique Art Deco auction piece, to the hinged, mirrored box it comes in, it looks like something worth three times the price. This is a smoky, mystical eau de toilette with top notes of coriander, African incense, saffron and cashmere wood – it is rich, elaborate and spicy. The base is a leather accord and musk to balance out the amber and balsamic main accords. Perhaps surprisingly this scent can be worn by both men and women – it is complex, it is versatile, and it is not as expensive as you might think. From $330.
