    Default Versace Eros - BAD performance!

    Hey everyone,


    Dont know if EROS has already been reformulated and I say that because it feels weak. According to my batch code, the production date of this bottle is 2014. I dont get the projection and sillage or the longevity that most people have been saying on EROS! smells strong for about half hour then into an hour it starts fading away and this is with 7 sprays. Somebody have the same experience with this one ???




    UPDATE: Probably it was my mistake, re-test it and it has great longevity and a decent projection.
    maybe because I've wore it too many times I just forgot how really good the performance is. Don't worry it hasn't reformulated and got no fake bottle.
    All good, it's a safe buy. I must to add it also a great date night scent! it seems the ladies LOVE it! there's no many guys that wear it,
    it is kind of unique, sweet & manly = ALL you need for a date!



    Also a few parameter to check if you got a real one and not a FAKE bottle:

    -Your cap should be mostly metal and not all plastic. If the cap is a light plastic it is a fake.
    - Madussa should be engraved on the inside of the cap
    - The word EUROITALIA is often mis spelled on either the label on the bottle or on the box itself.


    Thanks to SmellyFinger for the helpful info.

    Take care guys.

    7 sprays - one hour? That is atrocious

    I tried one spray on the back of my hand soon after the release date and got 5 hours easily

    In fact, the few times I tested this fragrance, remembering that its performance was one of the main if not the main setback

    I have a 2014 Eros and it performs fine. Put some high quality lotion around your neck after a shower, wait 15 minutes or so and spray away. This improves the performance of all my fragrances by about 4-6 hours.

    Wondering if you have a fake. This is a mushroom cloud in a bottle for me. One spray lasts all day.

    Also thought it might be nose fatigue.

    When I tried it, it was not bad in terms of longevity. 7 sprays are above average and 1 hour is not expected for Eros.
    Must be fatigue and/or fake juice? Give it a try on the cloths?

    No reformulation for Eros.

    Its either a fake (it is widely faked) or OF. 3 sprays to the chest will last over 12+ with heavy sillage. With 7 sprays you were in a temporary coma and sleep walking throughout the day...or you have a fake.

    Haha, 7 sprays.

    You're probably blowing the hell out of your nose to where it seems weak.

    As a test, try ONE spray on your wrist or something (far away from nose), and see how that is.

    Why would you do 7 sprays anyways?..

    Just do a spray on your arm and see how long that last.

    FWIW, it was quite potent last time I tried it. Lasted about 7-8 hours on skin.

    The fragrance is awful, so one of those cases where bad performance would be welcome!

    Poor performance? Wow. Even after a few hours, I couldn't scrub this one off. And believe me, I tried.

    You probably should edit this, as its a a bad idea to let counterfeiters use this site to correct their mistakes. That is why I PM'd you and a few others a few (but not all) of the tell tale signs.

    Probably not.

    Or are you talking about before trying to wash/scrub it off?

    Don't know what to say. I tried one spray on my wrist a couple of weeks ago and it took three days and three showers before I could no longer detect it.

    I'm in the UK and recently bought this - the batch number on my box is also UD1433.

    I'll be honest and say that when I smelled this in duty free coming back from Malta a couple of years ago I was not impressed with this. AT ALL.

    I had some cash to use up from Christmas gifts from relatives so thought what the hell, I'd pick this up anyway as they are one of my favourite fragrance houses and I own most of their stuff.

    This is strong stuff and not refined at all. This is modern but with a throwback to the 80s powerhouses, it's VERY synthetic and the mint note is so strong and high pitched (if that makes sense?) that the projection and sillage could never be questioned.

    Versace Eros has one of the best drydown ever, and
    The performance is remarkable. Don't know how could I say it doesn't perform well, shame on me!
