This blog post was supposed to be the review of Dylan Blue, the latest fragrance by Versace. I had tried it a few months before and liked it very much. As I was travelling on holidays from the Larnaca Airport last month, I remembered it and decided to buy it at the duty-free shop.
Once I was in front of the Versace stand, my attention was drawn to the beautiful, luxurious bottle of Eros Pour Femme. It was a round bottle with the gold Medusa symbol in the central part and on the lid edged with the gold Greek fret pattern. I could not remember if I had tried it before, so I sprayed it a little on my wrist. It was love at first sniff! The scent was a mixture of fresh, citrusy notes and musky notes and this was perfectly balanced. Before I knew it, it had already been in my basket. I completely forgot about Dylan Blue.
Eros Pour Femme was launched in December 2014. The perfumers who had created it are Alberto Morillas, Olivier Cresp and Nathalie Lorson. The fragrance opens with citrusy notes of Sicilian lemon, Calabrian Bergamot and pomegranate. Lemon , sambac jasmine and peony are at the heart of this perfume while sandalwood, ambrox, musk and various woody notes make the base. It is similar to the Light Blue Italian Zest by Dolce & Gabbana, but Eros is deeper and sweeter. It is very refreshing and uplifting and at the same time it is very mysterious, sensual and seductive because of its woody and musk notes. The scent is long lasting in a way that it can still be smelled subtly on your wrists after several hours into wear, but it should be reapplied a few times during the day if you really want to feel it. It is perfect for spring/summer time and it is suitable both for day and evening wear.
The fragrance is available as 30ml, 50ml and 100ml Eau de Toilette and Eau de Parfum. The price for a 50ml bottle EDT at the Larnaca Airport duty-free shop is 66,00EUR.
