Gift Set Giveaway 6: Versace Eros Flame
One of the most interesting fragrance trends of 2019 has been how women are discovering and wearing scents marketed to men. The warm woody base notes, spicy heart notes and fresh citrus top notes in men’s scents are appealing to a new generation of scent enthusiast. And many of these scents smell particularly good on women.
Versace Eros Flame is a great example of this phenomenon. And it works so well for both men and women because it pairs “cold and hot” and “sweet and spicy” notes to create a fresh citrusy, spicy-woody fragrance with a hint of amber. It’s classified as a modern aromatic-fougere scent. The perfumer is Olivier Pescheux and he blends notes of Italian citrus, black pepper, rosemary, pepperwood, geranium, rose, woods, tonka and vanilla.
The advertising campaign is interesting as it is a modern interpretation of Canova’s iconic “Eros and Psyche” sculpture, where a man embraces a woman played by Gigi Hadid and Salomon Diaz. It was shot by Steven Meisel.
This Versace Eros 4-Piece Gift Set contains:
Eros Flame Eau de Parfum 100 ml
Eros Flame Eau de Parfum 10 ml
After Shave Balm 100 ml
Shower Gel 100 ml
I recently showed this set on Cityline for an important reason. It offers one of the best designer fragrance values. For $2 more than the cost of the 100 ml Versace Eros Flame fragrance, you get the travel spray, after shave balm and shower gel. That is almost three pieces for free. (It retails for $127)
