    Arrow How popular IS Versace Man eau Fraiche?

    Hey guys,
    So I'm kinda interested in purchasing Versace Man eau Fraiche after reading many favorable reviews for it. Just one question: how popular is it? Is it worn by practically everyone? Is it among the lines of AdG, Issey Miyake, D&GH, CW, etc...? Will I walk into a club and smell it on 9 other guys? (I wonder if there's a way to check sales charts and stuff, but I don't know if companies release that info)

    Part of the reason I got into niche colognes was because I didn't want to smell like the next guy. This is kinda important to me. So I guess what I'm trying to ask is - how often do you smell this on people?

    Thanks for your opinions!

    Hey man i saw u where talking about buying the Versace Eau Frauche. I'm actually thinking off putting mine up for swap, it's kind of a Lemon, Apple smell to me, and great for summer. If you have anything in your wardrobe, you'd be interested in swapping, we can talk. U can see how much is left by watching this video

    You won't smell it on everyone at a club because it would have dissapeared by then... Its nice and refreshing for a hot day but thats about it. I'd consider going for D&G Light Blue (womens) for better longevity or Black XS for a similar but 'darker' fragrance.

    It's popular enough to be counterfeited all over the net. Be careful if you decide to order a bottle online. Ebay is full of fake Eau Fraiche bottles.

    A friend of mine owns a 50ML of this. And he is an expert in buying the popular stuff.

    I don't like this one. I would pick Chrome by Azzaro over this.

    I work with about 100 people and everyone knows about my scent adventure I am on now. No one has ever heard of eau fraiche and I have gotten lots of great compliments. On me it lasts long time and I think it is so invigorating and awakening when I apply it. Really enjoy this one!

    If you really like this scent get Light Blue Pour Femme. It's got a more masculine feel than feminine and it lasts a lot longer than Eau Fraiche.

    Light Blue for Women is nice but OP asked about popularity of Eau Fraiche. If he picks up Light Blue for Women he wont smell like many men, but like every other woman. IMO Light Blue for women in terms of popularity = Acqua Di Gio for men.

    Still no answer on what is going on with versace man in the blue box , black box an kinda purple box, i know the fragrances are totally diff,.. they should not even go under one name where just the color of the boxes an bottles separate them,. i just want to know if im gonna keep getting the one in the baby blue box, or if its getting discontinued or something

    Yeah I strayed a little bit from the purpose of the thread.
    Versace Man Eau Fraiche isn't overly popular but it seems to be one of those fragrances that is getting to be very popular. Also, the distinct simalarities to Light Blue Pour Femme and due to Eau Fraiches low longevity and projection, many people probably couldn't tell the difference between the two and Light Blue Pour Femme is very popular.

    I'd have to say if you're looking to stand out, Eau Fraiche isn't the way to go. Although, it is a very nice scent (I've always enjoyed it but won't purchase due to the poor longevity) so if you like it get it. Or, if standing out is higher on your priority list then start looking for another one.

    They do not have the same name...read the boxes and you will see that clearly. Versace Man comes in the purple box. Versace Man Eau Fraiche comes in the light blue box.

    I agree with Lonewolf about Man Eau Fraiche's longevity issues. I own it and enjoy the scent, I just wish the longevity was better on my skin. I will continue to use in my spring/summer rotation, but probably won't buy again. Try L'eau D'Issey for a similar type of scent with much better longevity and projection.

    PLEASE BE CAREFUL WHEN PURCHASING EAU FRAICHE, nowadays they make it look 1000% Authentic and it smells authentic too, but only lasts 1 hour .

    I found out the hard way.

    It's popular enough to be mass produced in a fake version.
