From the first spray of Versace Eros Pour Femme EDT (2016), the green floral tempered with a light touch of vanilla brings a smile.

Versace Eros Pour Femme has the Versace DNA and is more mainstream and unisex than other house fragrances, such as its scent cousin Versace Versense, and the more popular Versace Yellow Diamond.
The chief designer for Versace, Donatella Versace, says, “Eros Pour Femme is the ultimate in power and seduction from Versace,” but it does so with distinction and elegance.
Because of its aphrodisiac effect, Eros Pour Femme is a good female counterpart for Versace Dylan Blue Pour Homme.

The top notes are Sicilian lemon and Calabrian bergamot—elegant Italian citruses, and happy. It bathes the wearer in brightness. A raspberry sorbet note appears like a vanilla among floral greenery. It may take a few wears to distinguish.
After 15 minutes, sexy citrus and woods mix musk with ambrox and florals, pouring on sexual energy. Magnolia, jasmine petals, and freesia round out the heart notes.
Base notes include creamy sandalwood, ambrox, white patchouli (not enough for patchouli fans), sensual woods, and musk—and complete this sex-appeal-in-a-bottle.
Don’t be surprised if it makes you feel frisky.
Eros Pour Femme EDT lasts about 4 hours. Spray it on clothes to increase longevity.
Who Makes It
In 1982, the couture fashion house Versace released their first fragrance. The house had already established itself as one of the favorite fashion houses among royalty, famous actors, musicians, and people in the public eye. Versace joined Capri Holdings Limited in 2019, a fashion luxury group including Michael Kors and Jimmy Choo.
Versace fragrances are elegant and packed with panache, making them great for gift-giving.
Who Would Like It
Reviews demonstrate that this fragrance breaks barriers. People who don’t like citrus or jasmine enjoy it. Anyone who loves green perfumes and citrus will adore it. People who avoid harsh notes will appreciate it.
Anyone wearing fragrance to improve a mood will enjoy it.
Perfumistas who’ve tired of citrus-forward fragrances may add Versace’s Eros Pour Femme to the list of exalted citrus perfumes that have that je ne sais quoi, or special quality.
This won’t appeal to people who don’t like to reapply fragrance, but reapplication of Eros Pour Femme is a joyful occasion. People who enjoy dark or smoky fragrances will look elsewhere. Those craving patchouli will not hunger for this one.
When and Where to Wear It
Versace Eros Pour Femme’s exact season is spring, but it’s definitely for year-round wear.
While Eros Pour Femme is perfect for daytime and the office, it’s appropriate for work, play, working out, and dating. At an intimate distance, this may be the best time to experience the power of this perfume.
Packaging and Presentation
Eros Pour Femme comes in a thick and hefty, curved bottle with the Versace Medusa. The bottle has a travel-worthy gold cap that fits well. The Medusa is also in relief on the glass front, which is framed with a golden Greek motif. The juice is golden green.
I enjoyed Eros Pour Femme’s ability to instantly lift my mood. Eros Pour Femme is among the best green perfumes I’ve tried.
This perfume drew compliments from loved ones, and made me feel a little frisky if I’m honest – and you might, or might not.
Similar Perfumes / Alternatives
Chanel N°19’s current version is green with vetiver and might be preferred by someone wanting a less bright perfume with more woods.
Chanel Cristalle has the cheer of Eros Pour Femme, but Pour Femme is elegantly flamboyant, making Cristalle a choice for those seeking understated elegance.
Clinique Happy is also bright and less green.
The most important alternative for Eros Pour Femme is Eros Pour Homme, indicating Versace has chosen a different male profile. The wear should be determined by which audience the user wishes to attract.
Versace Eros Pour Femme is a high-quality green floral that fits in a niche group of perfumes with few options. Add to that sex appeal, and this may be one of the most solid green fragrances of our time.
