Top notes: Lemon, Mint, and Apple
Middle notes: Ambroxan, Tonka Bean, and Geranium

Eros was created by Aurelien Guichard of Givaudan and was marketed as woody, fresh, and slightly oriental. Indeed, opening a bottle of Eros will greet you with a hint of apple and lemon. You will notice the mix of herbal elements upon application followed by vanilla, making the scent seem relentless. The mixture of vanilla and citrus makes Eros really sweet, lacking the creaminess that one might want for a scent. Regardless, one could truly say that Eros is a fragrance that seeks attention – a fact loved by perfume lovers that love their fragrances strong.
Eros is available in 100ml Eau de Toilette and 50ml bottles, all priced below 100£.
Clearly, Eros is the scent for individuals who want to catch the attention – not so to those who like their cologne subtle. Regardless, Eros for Versace is a good buy and is easy to love.
