Hearing the name, Versace imparts an assortment of thoughts including exquisite fashion, glamour, sophistication, and elegance. It was the late Italian fashion designer Gianni Versace and later his brother Santo Versace that formed the company that became one of the biggest fashion labels in the industry. Their designs have been worn by some of the biggest stars, and models in Hollywood including Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiifer, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, Hugh Grant, Steven Spielberg and many, many more.

Although Gianni's innovation in this industry will be missed, his younger sibling Donatella has taken over releasing and in fact designing the luxurious bottle for Versace Man in 2003. The bottle is a work of perfection, in fact the first thing youll notice prior to getting a whiff of this wonderful masculine fragrance is the dynamic relaxing sensory experience the bottle offers. Simply allow your fingertips the opportunity to explore, rub and caress the grooves sensuous grooves of the weighty rectangular 3.4 ounce glass bottle. The zigzag edges make the hands feel as if they are receiving a miniature massage while the gold metal signature accents delight the eyes as you prepare to push the pump.
Versace Man is currently one of the hottest and trendiest colognes at the counter. Once sprayed you will quickly understand why is character is so distinguishable. According to Donatella Versace, it is, synonymous with elegance and seduction. Men that wear this designers clothing will relish in the riches of the familiar sweet and spicy scent this eau de toilette imparts.
What does it smell like?
The top notes of neroli, bergamot, flowers and pepper are the first scent impressions after this cologne has been sprayed to the skin. The neroli imparts a sweet evanescence of the sweet orange tree, while the bergamot, which comes from a tree cultivated in the southern part of Calabria, Italy, is considered an excellent fixative. The flowers notes help prolong the continuity and life of the initial notes followed by the pepper that adds the spice. One of the amazing things I like is that the peppery scent is extremely mild and not aggressive.
The warm middle notes consist of saffron and cardamom creating a harmonious blend that really classifies the cologne family. Out of the four major scent families, I would place Versace Man in the Chypre family due to its harmonic and blending contrast. For example, Cardamom is a valuable addition to this fragrance. Cardamom a hybrid is really a perennial herb that imparts more spice than the top note of pepper, imparted when the cologne is initially sprayed on the skin. Cardamon offers a comforting, warm and refreshing characteristic almost like a soothing aphrodisiac. Perhaps its the addition of saffron one of the most expensive spices in the world that adds to the colognes overall lavishness.
The dry down notes representing the underlying tones of this cologne are amber, Kashmir wood, and tobacco. The magic of Kashmir trees is legendary as it imparts a mysterious, exotic woodsy smell wrapped in the aroma of a molasses type tobacco. The originality of this cologne comes from its extremely pleasing smell. This is an eccentric fragrance that imparts strength and a sense of manly elegance.
It is nice for office wear but ideal for romantic evenings and settings. Whether your date involves a dinner for two at the Ritz-Carlton Buckhead, the Colonnade Restaurant for traditional southern cooking or a close-contact game of billiards, you can prove your sensuality with Versace Man. For the best outcome and maximum results spray your wrists and chest if things are going places you probably want a dash behind your ears, do the wrist trick, never ever spray any cologne directly behind your ears the last thing you want is over kill.
According to Donatella Versace this cologne, is dedicated to a man who is modern and charismatic with an inner confidence which reflects on the outside. It appears Donatellas statement is true, if you dont have the spunk before you put it only, youll definetly have an extra pep in your step after it is applied, you love wont get enough of you.
