Eros Flame by Versace

Upon open, the tangerine note is quite obvious, softened with some vanilla and tonka. And that's about all the fragrance is. When the tangerine disappears, it's all vanilla and tonka. It smells cheap throughout the entire progression. At first I didn't mind the tangerine despite the cheap quality, but it's Dollar Store compared to something like Zegna's Sicilian Mandarin.

The downside of getting into the Rojas and Zegnas and Tom Fords and Creeds and Xerjoffs and Spirit of Dubais is it becomes very hard to smell these cheap mass-appeal fragrances, clearly intended for younger people who can feel special saying "It's Versace." I don't mean that in a snobby way, after all most of us started there. But that doesn't make it untrue. Smelling things like this and L'homme de la Nuit Eau Electrique now give me a headache as if I'm smelling public washroom hand soap.
