What I loved about Versace Eros1. I really love the flacon ! I know that is hardly the basis for liking a perfume but looks do matter - don't they ! The lovely Mediterranean hued sturdy bottle oozes power and sexiness.
2. It definitely attracts attention with its opening notes that are very fresh and sweet .The mint is not powerful, the green apple and lemon fill you with a burst of sweetness that is sweet but fresh and invigorating too. I also found the Geranium surfaces quite quickly. The Ambroxan and Vanilla linger for long and the oak moss gives that hint of green.
3. The base notes are really sexy and long lasting.
Over all I liked this perfume on my man especially after the first half an hour of applying.
4. This is not your regular low lying work perfume; this is more suitable for evenings, casual outdoors and parties.
5. This is not very heavy on the pocket and with its lasting power, it is a good buy.
What I did not love about Versace Eros1. My friend felt it was slightly more towards sweet and floral and not suitable for work.
2. The majestic flacon raised my expectations and I expected it to be more aquatic and fresher rather than quickly drying down into warm sweetness.
3.It is not for the mature man - this is more suited to the fun and young at heart ,mostly for under thirty men.
