Reviews of Versace pour Homme Dylan Blue

Imagine taking everything good about the over-exposed Hugo by Hugo Boss (1995), throwing away the rest, and building it up with a complex layering of notes on top a bed of modern nuclear-powered aromachemicals into something competition-worthy against Bleu de Chanel (2010), or Dior Sauvage (2015). If you can't, that's okay, because all you have to do is go sniff Versace Pour Homme Dylan Blue (2016) to get that mental image. I was really hard on the original Versace Pour Homme (2008) for good reason, as it was boring, boring, boring, boring! Yet, all the mall walkers out there just kept lapping it up like dogs, so Versace felt inclined to make (thankfully superior) flankers of it starting with Versace Pour Homme Oud Noir (2013). Whilst that scent tried to catch the designer "oud craze", and was intentionally limited in scope, Versace Pour Homme Dylan Blue seeks to be a scent with the power of the mega-clubber Versace Eros (2013), but without the cloying richness, instead merging this power with fresh, fruity, and playful tones that are surprisingly complex. Dylan Blue is still incredibly synthetic, so it won't win over any fans of vintage or niche/artisinal fare unless they're extremely open-minded about their selections, but it's a generalist I can more than live with; I can actually enjoy it.

Bergamot, grapefruit, and the usual aquatic captives containing dihydromyrcenol are all floating in the top. There's a fruity aspect I can't place in this opening, and it's a very juicy tart note that combines with a bit of fig leaf to really pop on the nose. Violet leaf and patchouli continues the loudness of the opening, with some black pepper to keep things from getting too sweet, although this is undoubtedly a sweet fragrance if the ambroxan didn't give that away. Dylan Blue has an odd soapiness not like the usual orris soap, but more like the kind of deodorant soapy vibe some early 2000's fougères like Cabaret de Gres Pour Homme (2004) contained, and I say it's akin to coast (original blue bar). I actually like this vibe alot, and if that gets me ostracized from the influencers and tastemakers club, so be it. The base is the expected musk and tonka, but Iso E Super and norlimbanol are skillfully used to create an incense note here that I can appreciate, and it's not far off from that found in Amouage Jubilation XXV (2008), which is really well-known for this dry down. Dylan Blue is a much erm.. bluer take on this effect, and gives hours of resounding sillage, enough for a workday and creeps into evening use as well, although this isn't a clubber smell as it's not rich enough and too clean. Dylan Blue ranks up there as another high-performance generalist for the no-thinker crowd of guys who likely just want to own one bottle of fragrance anyway, but it's more enjoyable than most of its ilk.

Bottom line here, is Versace Pour Homme Dylan Blue won't knock anyone's socks off creatively, but it will blow off the doors if over-applied, so be careful. This stuff competes with Sauvage in the "room clearer" category, and although fruitier and sweeter than Sauvage's dry scratchy citrus cloud, can be no less piercing with too heavy a hand. I've said this before, but Versace Dylan Blue is not my first choice from the house of Versace, but of anything made by them for guys after 2000, it is at least in my top 3 choices. If you can't be bothered with fancy scent pyramids and just want to smell good, then Versace Pour Homme Dylan Blue is a solid choice, especially for a younger man not ready for heavy aromatics, sharp leathers, or spicy orientals. Versace Pour Homme Dylan Blue is the perfect graduation up from an Axe/Lynx body spray in that it retains the affable fruitiness and simple clean of those dimestore aerosols, but has much richer and more complex progression, better performance, and smells a hell of a sight classier. This might just be the perfect fragrance upgrade for the modern teen guy, although, as a fan of fruity 2000's Kenneth Cole masculines, I'd still wear it too, which probably speaks more about me than it should. Thumbs up!

Great entry by Versace. This reminds me of the first fragrance I ever bought, Hugo (1995). I got a sample of this at Sephora and loved it. Lots of random compliments. I bought a full bottle from Amazon that seems to be real, but the incense note doesn't burn nearly as strong so I may have to re-gift it for Xmas to someone and get myself a new batch. Hope I can get a strong one with that beautiful incense note. Someone commented about an EDP concentration coming soon but I haven't read anything else, but that sounds promising.

I'm supposed to hate this, right? Mass-market dreck by a fashion house with a spotty track record for fragrances of any serious quality, fronted by a ridiculously on-the-nose ad campaign (Versace is for sexy people, don't you know), crafted from ingredients that surely didn't put a dent in Donatella's crocodile clutch. I'm supposed to bemoan the state of the modern-day fragrance market and the plebes who fuel it, and clutch my vintage and niche bottles close to my chest while rocking gently and singing "You Are My Lucky Star", praying for the nightmare that is mainstream perfumery to be over. Well, screw it. Dylan Blue smells good, and I enjoy wearing it. It's not as sweet and obnoxious as the likes of its housemate Eros, at least, and there's a certain whiff of...dare I say it...*sophistication* in its sillage trail. It smells like a night out, yes, but one that mostly involves being fully clothed, with perhaps a nip in the air (and a few gin-and-tonics on the breath). It's easy and wearable and a compliment-getter, with the requisite nostril-searing aromachemicals and woody musks graciously set to "stun", not "kill". Bravissimo, Dylan Blue. I don't hate you.

I do love this fragrance, and I'm not even a bit ashamed.

It is definitely Versace's crack at BDC, and this is better. It might come down to taste for some, but I really feel like this fragrance is doing everything BDC is doing and more.

It fits most any situation or time of year. Day/Night. Warm/Cold. Office/Date. It's not always the best grab for the situation, but it is never excluded from the conversation.

There's a bucket that I put a few choice, contemporary fragrances in. It's like an ambrox bucket. Sauvage, BDC, ADG Profumo, Dylan Blue. The list continues to grow. But there's a clear gradient:

Profumo > Dylan Blue > Sauvage > BDC.

I think the Versace is both miles beneath ADG Profumo and miles above the other two.

If you like BDC, replace it with Dylan Blue. It's half the price and performs as well or better.

Scent: 8/10

Longevity: 9/10

Sillage: 8/10

Starts off soapy like the original Versace pH. Then comes the grapefruit I can't stand, followed up by some light musk.

Good, non-offensive work scent. Not too original, not a full bottle purchase for me.

Versace,
Quite enjoy the house.
Smelt this for the first time properly today.....

Nice, clean and very safe. I like it.
Doesn't beat Eros.
But I'm thinking it is defo bottle worthy. Eventually I will invest.

Although most other Versace frags are better, this did last a good time on my skin.
I won't be rushing out for it, but it is on my radar now I feel.
