Reviews of Eros Flame

Very sinthetic apart from the first few seconds after you spray the juice.

Very persistent...

Shallow, synthetic, sweet, redundant. A bit less atrocious than the original - which can say a lot what I think about the original.

That being said, I'd rather not waste my time typing a longer review.

Close to the original but nothing about it brings flames or fire to mind. Sweeter, fruitier, yet somehow I couldn't shake the association to Eau Sauvage, especially as it dried.

I am convinced it is purely a ploy to cash in...but it is not a 'bad' fragrance, so...neutral it is.

Eros Flame (2018) seems to be part of a late 2010's "fire themed" flanker rollout taking place among designers, coming full-circle from the fire-themed gourmands that started rolling out mid-to-late 2000's. It's almost like we're stuck in this endless loop of aquatic, airy, earthy, and firey synthetic themes that skirt completely over traditional genres like chypres, fougères, and orientals, even if sometimes those categories are used as adjectives to describe things otherwise far more abstract. Maybe I'm just not "fired up" for the style Eros Flame represents. I see no real fire in it at all, just another orange-themed clubber that feels like a seventh son of the seventh son of Paco Rabanne 1 Million (2008). The original Versace Eros (2013) was penned by Aurélien Guichard and represented an interesting merger of rich clubber oriental tones and a fresh minty semi-fougère accord that was versatile enough to pull double duty as a work and play scent. Eros Flame is penned by Olivier Pescheux, who is literally ONE OF THE GUYS who created Paco Rabanne 1 Million, and feels like the result of him being asked to recreate 1 Million as a Versace fragrance. I can imagine being asked to more or less plagiarize your own work (rather than do it surreptitiously by desire like Pierre Bourdon has done once or twice), it must feel like being typecast, and the results are likely to become less and less endearing each time. Maybe it's time designers like Versace break out of these silly elemental cycles and extreme/sport/intense/nuit/blue nonsense and do something novel? Considering Olivier Pescheux's track record with Diptyque, I know he can do way better than this.

Eros Flame does indeed open as one might expect a parroting of Paco Rabanne 1 Million by one of its own perfumers to open: with heaps of tart orange and spice. Tangerine, orange, and black pepper all swirl together to offer a more piquant and less sweet take on the theme, but the smooth lemon and bright geranium notes let you know before long that original Eros is still underneath it all, if being held prisoner by the embellishments. non-existent rose my nose doesn't detect is listed in the heart, alongside a healthy ambroxan dose that is the only heat to Eros Flame, with an aromatic dry rosemary joining hay-like tonka also returning to its previous role in the heart, just like the original Eros but a tad more herbal. Eros Flame is surprisingly irritating in its dry down stages compared to the older Eros, ditching much of the sugar and mulled spice for a more-prominent cedar and vetiver note than the original, likely meant to imply a hearth-like woodsiness but just feeding the "fire" of the aromachemical base. The rest of the development in Eros Flame bares no resemblance to the pillar after which it is named, with a bleached synthetic patchouli, and something like a red bell pepper mixed with scratchy norlimbanol called "pepperwood" (likely a custom or captive) doing the talking. There's a bit of vanilla here too but it isn't on the same level as the original blue bottle. Eros Flame has weaker sillage despite being spicier and harsher, but maybe that was on purpose, like Versace was doing everyone else in the club around the asshole wearing this a favor by making it harder for him to over-apply. Outside this bit of mercy, Eros Flame is by no means weak. Longevity is about as impressive as the original Eros too, so no need to worry about carrying the bottle around, but this is also nowhere near as versatile either, so I don't suggest wearing it work unless you're planning on making a "statement" to coworkers or clients unawares.

I went on a long diatribe about the original Eros because it was just so different and dynamic compared to what else was out at the time, and what else Versace themselves had released, being the first really creative masculine perfume from the house since Versace The Dreamer (1996), but Eros Flame just feels like a chore to wear, a chore to smell, and ultimately a chore to write about, so I have much less to say on it. There isn't a bit of originality here, and this is "phoned-in oriental spice and scratchy synthwoods galore" like countless other clubbers still trying to be "the next 1 Million" a decade later, which is really sad since it's in a pretty cool red version of the Versace Eros bottle crested with a gold cap. The packaging here is more than on point, but the juice inside deflates me faster than Aunt May unwittingly sitting on a whoopie cushion placed by one of the brat nephews on Thanksgiving. Anyone looking for a really different and distinctive youth-friendly juice made for the club but equally at-home in a work or college environment should explore the original Versace Eros, which is probably the best of the breed. Fans of 1 Million that want to fill a wardrobe with smell-alikes might find a bit of redemption here as a slightly drier (but scratchier) take, while most others not as enamored with that ubiquitous and sometimes cloying style will take one sniff of this and go "oh no, not another one". This isn't the first time Versace has been guilty of going through the motions (see 2008's Versace Pour Homme), and surely won't be the last, and I guess I should be grateful this idea is presented as a flanker of Eros rather than a new pillar. Thumbs down.

Similar to Eros but opens up with a sweet, sharp, citrus orange blast. Not a natural orange either, more like Fruit Loops or children's vitamins. If original Eros is like mint gum then Flame is the Fruit Stripe gum version. This orange scent sticks around for a 4-6 hours as it becomes more and more powdery sweet into the drydown. At times, it reminds me of Le Male Eau Fraiche.

Has a very young, unrefined and casual feel to it.

Performance is pretty good with above average projection and very good longevity, lasts all workday.
