Reviews of Gianni Versace

Those good ol' times....

Extraordinary fragrance from the end of Seventies/ beginning of Eighties.

Very, very long longevity and strong sillage.,

The EDT is equivalent to a modern Eau de Parfum. And it's good, very good.

You can literally "smell the quality"-.

two thumbs up.

BTW the bottle is NOT the one in picture, but this:

Pros: You can "smell the quality"

Another disappeared gem forgotten nowadays but still alife in the memory of some lovers and collectors. In the same vein of some complex, vintage-animal and "stuffy"  concoctions of the past as First V&A, Diva Ungaro, Fendi, Salvador Dali for women, Ysatis and others this one is an heavy combination of bergamot, citrus, a bouquet of flowers (notable tuberose and jasmine), patchouli and a base of woods, oakmoss, balsams, patchouli and incense. The outcome was glorious, important and highly refined as the scent of the intellectual ( in jewellery and fur) aged aunt of your best friend. Pleasantly "stuck", rich (but not syrupy) and decadent with accents of leather, fruity mellifluence and mould. One of the smells swirling around in the course of my adolescence. A thumbs up.

Amarige/Ysatis/Organza smell similar to this. Gianni Versace is the typical fullbodied and fatal female scent.

It's funny but I can only smell the flowers (tuberose, gardenia, jazmin, lily of the valley) and a week halo of spices and incense. I don't feel a strong presence of leather notes or patchuli, so Gianni isn't as cloying or overpowering as it seems.

The lasting power is good.I like it a lot.

This is an amazing fragrance that should be relaunched. I have been looking for, but unable to find, a winter scent that is close to Gianni Versace Original.

This is a truly amazing fragrance. If you are lucky enough to procure a bottle, it will become your signature.
