Who Makes It? 

Spanish perfumer, Alberto Morillas, is the creator of Versace Pour Homme. The fragrance was officially launched by Versace in 2008. Morillas is also the creator of another popular Versace scent called Versace Pour Homme Dylan Blue.

Morillas grew up in Seville, Spain where he spent his childhood exploring the nature that surrounded his home. Beautiful gardens surrounded his childhood home, filling the air with lovely floral notes.

This home is where his love for scents and scent combining first sparked. The influence of his upbringing inspired him to create fragrances that mimic nature and natural scents.

His fragrance creations spread across multiple famous brands ranging from Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein to Versace and Gucci. Currently, he is a master perfumer for a Swiss fragrance and flavor company called Firmenich.

Scent Notes

When the Versace Pour Homme parfum is first spritzed, notes of Diamante citrus, bitter orange leaves, Neroli flowers, and Mediterranean accents fill the air.

After these refreshing scents start to settle, middle notes of geraniums, clary sage, blue hyacinth, and cedar start to move in like a breath of fresh air.

Soon after, base notes of amber and musk arrive to finish the fragrance with a masculine touch.

Who Would Like It?

Versace Pour Homme is for the confident, smart, modern man. The fragrance exhibits the modern man’s passionate character and drive for success.

When the fragrance was launched, Donatella Versace told reporters that Versace Pour Homme, “…represents a strong, sensual man with determination.”

This scent would be perfect for a young man ready to face the world with confidence and boldness.

When and Where To Wear It

When we think of spring and summer, fruit and flowers are the first things that come to mind. This fragrance is best worn in the spring and summer due to the citrus and floral notes. It’s like warm weather in a glass bottle.

It has a nice fresh, sophisticated scent, so it is best for nighttime. Spritz a little on before going on a date or going to a fancy dinner with friends.

Take it on vacation with you for dinner dates and fancy night events. Versace Pour Homme gift sets offer travel-size bottles, so traveling with a cologne isn’t a hassle.

Daytime formal or important events are an exception to the nighttime recommendation.

Presentations for work, a daytime date, or a party are great candidates for this fragrance. This scent screams maturity and confidence and that is exactly the vibe you want to give off at important events.

Packaging and Presentation

The Versace Pour Homme 50mL, 100mL, and 200mL bottles all come in a signature Versace box. It comes in a rectangular, black box with a printed Roman border.

The name of the fragrance is centered on the box with the Medusa head logo. And then the box is sealed in cellophane. The design is simple, yet sophisticated. It isn’t over the top, but it isn’t bland either. Less is more.

When you take the plastic cellophane off and open the box, you are met with a clear glass bottle. Inside the bottle, the fragrance itself has a light blue tint to it.

It is reminiscent of water. The famous silver Medusa head medallion is on the outside of the bottle and the bottle pump is covered with a silver topper, with “Versace” engraved on the neck.

The bottles may differ slightly, depending on which size you get. The Versace Pour Homme 100mL bottle and the Versace Pour Homme 200mL bottle have fewer glasses than the 50mL bottle.

You’ll notice that the 50mL bottle has a solid chunk of glass filling the bottom of the bottle. The 100mL and 200mL bottles are hollowed out compared to the 50mL bottle.

Personal Impressions

Boldness is the first thing that comes to mind. The initial scent is rather strong, but not in a bad way. If you’re buying cologne or perfume, you want to be able to smell it. The scent starts off strong and mellows out as time passes.

That’s where the middle and base notes start to chime in. You definitely do not need to spray a lot of this fragrance. A little will go a long way.

Versace Pour Homme is reminiscent of warm, summer nights and good times. It is almost comforting. If fancy vacation was a scent, this would be it.

It is sophisticated and mature, yet a little playful. The floral notes bring out the “fun” scent, while the cedar, amber, and musk scream sophistication. It is a perfect balance.


The scent lasts for hours and the silage is amazing. If the fragrance is sprayed onto the skin, the sillage will weaken throughout the day.

However, if you spritz it on clothing, it will last all day. So, putting it on clothing is best if you want the scent to last. 

Pros & Cons

Pros and cons are helpful when making a decision to buy something. Use these pros and cons to help make your decision on purchasing Versace Pour Homme.

Final Thoughts

Fragrances are the perfect accessory. Versace Pour Homme will put some confidence in your step and give you the boost you need to get through your day.
