6 Versace Colognes That Will Delight Your Nostrils
Want to be the guy that smells great all the time? Consider these colognes from Versace. They’re sure to make a positive impression.
As the late Gianni Versace said, “Without it, [fragrance] there’s something missing.”
He understood the importance of dressing a man completely — meaning, dressing him in great clothes but also with a great cologne to both complete and complement the picture. The fragrance makes the man.
Today, Versace still epitomizes cutting-edge, sexy clothing for both men and women, and its line of fragrances and colognes complements the unique position the company maintains in the world of Italian fashion royalty.
Versace offers a variety of colognes to suit all seasons and times of the day. Their fragrances tend to be more on the bold and unapologetic side, but if you are not a fan of anything too concentrated, they also have lighter, more subtle colognes you can wear anytime, anywhere.
Here are our top three recommendations from the list:
Versace Pour Homme Oud Noir
Versace Oud Noir smells expensive, even though it is moderately priced. You’ll feel it is well worth it. Versace Oud Noir turns up the volume on sophistication in a subtle, pleasant way.
Versace Blue Jeans
Versace Blue Jeans is aimed at a young market. It has a casual, oriental, sweet yet woody vibe that makes it a versatile all-rounder.
Versace Eros is sexy and sweet in a masculine way, and it will get you compliments galore. It is a strong and long-lasting fragrance, so you won’t need more than a couple of sprays all day.

Best Versace Colognes
Here are the best Versace colognes in no particular order.
Our first pick has to be Versace Eros.
It was launched in 2012 and is available in an Eau De Toilette, an Eau De Parfum, and a Parfum, so you can choose the level of concentration you prefer. Given that, the actual fragrance itself smells outrageous — in a good way, of course.
It is sexy and sweet in a masculine way, and it will get you compliments galore. Versace Eros is minty fresh with a hint of apple and a depth of vanilla that is outright delicious.
Top notes are mint, green apple, and lemon; middle notes are tonka bean, ambroxan, and geranium; base notes are vanilla, cedar, vetiver, and oakmoss.
Wear it on all occasions, out clubbing, for casual use, or for parties in the cooler months.
It is a strong fragrance, so be sparing with your spritzes. It is also long-lasting, so you won’t need more than a couple of sprays all day.
Versace Eros Flame
Next comes Versace Eros Flame, which is a newer version of Versace Eros.
This cologne takes away some of the sharpness and sweetness of the original Eros and replaces it with a citrus spiciness.
Versace Eros Flame is a smoother, quieter, more sophisticated fragrance that is easier to wear in more situations all year round.
It has a spicy, woodsy, citrus smell which deepens into herbal undertones, and finally dries down into the same creamy vanilla notes as Eros.
Top notes are mandarin orange, black pepper, chinotto, lemon, and rosemary; middle notes are geranium, pepper, and rose; base notes are vanilla, tonka bean, cedar, sandalwood, patchouli, and oakmoss.
Although this is a toned-down version of Eros it is probably also best suited to fall, winter, and cooler spring days as it can pack a punch in the heat. It is also super long-lasting, like Eros, but on the subtler side. Use sparingly.
Versace Oud Noir
Versace Oud Noir turns up the volume on sophistication, but not with the usual in-your-face punch that other oud fragrances sometimes project.
Oud is an expensive ingredient made from the resin of the agarwood tree, and it can be overpowering, but Versace Oud Noir does oud in a subtle, pleasant way.
It is warm, spicy, and woody with more mass appeal than many oud colognes now on the market. Versace Oud Noir smells expensive, even though it is moderately priced. You’ll feel it is well worth it.
Top Notes are pepper, bitter orange, and neroli; middle notes are saffron, cardamom, and olibanum; base notes are oud, patchouli, and leatherwood.
While probably not a good summertime cologne as it is still on the richer side, it’s great for date nights and formal occasions. Oh, and it will likely suit a more mature audience than Eros or Eros Flame. Say 30s and above? It’s a true gentleman’s fragrance, perfect for the sophisticated, professional man-about-town.
Versace Man Eau Fraiche
Now to something that is perfect for the warmer months — Versace Man Eau Fraiche.
You can just smell the ocean and feel the soft summer breezes on your skin with this one. Before we wax too lyrical, however, let’s dive into its fresh, tropical fruitiness and explore its notes.
It opens with a blast of citrus and aquatic accords — which come from the addition of star fruit — settling into woody notes with a touch of spice.
It is an energizing, bright, fresh cologne that only needs a couple of sprays to impress those around you the entire day. In other words, don’t go overboard (so to speak).
Top notes are lemon, bergamot, star fruit, cardamom, and rosewood; middle notes are cedar, tarragon, sage, and pepper; base notes are musk, wood notes, saffron, amber and sycamore.
This one performs super well in warm weather, so wear it at pool parties, trips to the beach, yachting etc. You get the vibe.
Versace Pour Homme
We’re staying with the energetic, citrusy vibe with this next one. Versace Pour Homme is a classic fragrance that takes the freshness of aquatic notes and blends them with the sweetness of tonka bean to make it appealing across all age groups.
With hidden depths of musk melted in a super smooth blend, you’ll find this is wearable dressed up, dressed down, casual, formal, date nights, and office meetings. It goes anywhere, everywhere, and is particularly suitable during the warmer weather months.
Top notes are lemon, bergamot, neroli, and rose; middle notes are hyacinth, cedar, clary sage, and geranium; base notes are tonka bean, musk, and amber.
Versace Blue Jeans
As you’ve guessed, Versace Blue Jeans is aimed at a young market — say teens and early twenties.
It has been a perennial favorite since its launch in 1994 and has a casual, oriental, sweet yet woody vibe that makes it a versatile all-rounder.
With notes of vanilla and lavender, Versace Blue Jeans feels sweet and very youthful.
Top notes are citrus, bergamot, juniper, anise, rosewood, and basil; middle notes are lavender, rose, carnation, heliotrope, jasmine, geranium, sage, fir, and lily-of-the valley; base notes are vanilla, tonka bean, sandalwood, iris, musk, amber, cedar, vetiver, and patchouli.
While there’s a lot going on here, they blend together in a pleasing and perennially popular combination.
Wear Versace Blue Jeans all year, day or night, casual or when you’re out clubbing, to impress the girls or guys. Keep a bottle in your gym locker for a quick spritz after a workout.
It’s easy and uncomplicated. It’s also very affordable, which makes it a no-brainer as an addition to your fragrance wardrobe. Why not have some handy?
Other contenders that make our best list include Versace Dylan Blue, Versace the Dreamer, and Versace Signature.
There’s something in the Versace cologne line to please everyone. Try a few on for size and see for yourself. Best of all, you’ll find they are modestly priced, offering great value for their quality and structure.
You can splurge on several without breaking the bank.
