            Browsing around the net, you will undoubtedly find a  Versace Eros review. Many reviewers claim this is one of the best fragrances in the world right now, but does it measure up to the CologneMasters test.

            I first was introduced to this fragrance by finding it on a few top 10 lists for best mens fragrances. When I see a fragrance being recommended by multiple sources, I figure it has to be good and it’s worth looking into.

            When I first purchased this bottle off Amazon, I opened it out of the box and smelled it just out of the sprayer. My initial reaction was that this was going to be another perfect 10 fragrance.

            After wearing it at work for a full day, I changed my mind…

            CologneMaster Thoughts

            versace eros review pic

            Eros by Versace is highly controversial. You have have critics and reviewers saying that this fragrance is shouldn’t be allowed to be worn because of it’s stench, but other people will say they can’t get their wives and girl friends off them. I even read one instance where a woman tried to lick the fragrance off her man’s neck.

            The bottom line is this… When we do a fragrance review, I use my personal opinions mixed with what the mass population of the world say. Even though I may say something good or bad, that doesn’t mean Eros won’t work or will for you.

            Vanilla and Tonka Bean rule this fragrance. If these notes are up your alley, then maybe it’s something to give a try.

            Longevity – The longevity is pretty amazing. It’s on the discussion board for one of longest lasting fragrances around.

            Projection – Fairly average projection. When I wear this fragrance, I’ll notice throughout the day.

            Cool Bottle – The texture, bottle top, all look pretty cool and sophisticated. If someone came into your room and saw this laying around, it would look pretty sophisticated

            Masculine – Men that wear this, smell like one.

            For the grand finale of the Versace Eros review, when you spray this fragrance, you’re going to get a nice warm scent that is reminiscent of tonka bean, and vanilla.

            This fragrance does not pass the grandma’s house test which means it’s not a safe fragrance to wear to school, work, church, or wherever. The best time to wear this fragrance is if you were to head out for a night where you’re not going to be in tight spaces next to people.

            There are better smells than this one. My initial reaction to this smell was not accurate with to my final thoughts.

            I would purchase this fragrance only if I knew my girlfriend or lady friend goes nuts over it, otherwise I would stick to something different. There are better fragrances out there.

            Who should wear it? Who shouldn’t?

            Eros by Versace Reviews by People Other Than Me

            This is my favorite part because it gives some perspective on what other random people have said about it…

            Here is someone that seems pretty impressed with it

            This one lasts and lasts and lasts on me, and the compliments roll in. It is very sweet for sure. Vanilla, tonka, Apple, mint and lemon is what I get from this. It has been awhile since I wore it, but when I do I enjoy it and so does everyone else around me.

            I’ve worn this in warm weather but I think this is best suited for cooler weather, winter in fact. It is in the vein of the one million crowd, the sweet stuff but I don’t mind sweet at all. I for one love and have purchased jpg ultra male and I am in my 40s (I mention that merely because scents like Eros and ultra male are quickly labeled as club scent for young obnoxious guys)

            Versace gets a lot of hate but I will tell you, the dreamer, vintage Versace man are incredible scents. Eros is not incredible but it is quite good. Warm, sweet, comforting and long-lasting. Not my signature scent but I enjoy it a great deal. At some point the older fragrance crowd will have to accept the fact that fresh and sweet is what is ruling the day (in the designer game at least) and they can continue to moan and whine or they can try to have an open mind and try to find the good in what is being released. Don’t get me wrong the classics will always be the classics and I am a fan of Kouros, Antaeus, polo green, etc but there is plenty of room in my wardrobe for both. Try some on with an open mind and see what you think.

            Here is a lady on the Twittersphere…

            And here is a guy that thinks the same way I do…

            WAY TOO STRONG!
            This can be used a clubbing scent in the same spirit as 1 Million, Le Male.
            I cannot imagine a mature male using this in an office environment or at church as it would be too cloying.

            It’s not a BAD smell; it’s just overwhelming and ever-present (like Axe).
            Maybe it will burn itself out in a year.

            I can imagine those under 26 or over 65 wearing this to “make the scene” in a club as they unnecessarily yell into your ear “CAN YOU SMELL MY COLOGNE?”.

            One more time… Who should buy Eros by Versace?

            Age Group: Under 30

            This fragrance lacks the sophistication and maturity that someone over 30 should be wearing.

            Season: Spring, Fall, Winter

            Feel free to wear Eros in the months that are a little bit cooler. Not really a summer fragrance.

            Time of Day: Night

            Although you can wear Eros during the day, it is primarily an evening fragrance.

            Gift?: No

            It’s not universally liked enough to be given as a gift

            Longevity: Very good

            Most people will report up to 8 hours of life. That is amazing for an EDT and exceeds expectations.

            Harmless? – No

            If you wear this around your grandma, most likely she won’t

            Popularity – Very popular

            Eros by Versace is still one of the most popular fragrances today.

            Price – Good

            Any fragrance you can find for under $50 a bottle is pretty good. I bought mine here.

            Awards – 0

            None yet

            Sexy – Very Sexy

            Although it’s pretty controversial, women seem to adore this scent but it’s the men usually that don’t like it.

            Signature Cologne – No

            It’s not a fragrance you want people to remember you by. Instead, use this as a situational fragrance.
