    Default Versace Eros with poor performance - Probably reformulated

    Hello guys,

    Some days ago I tested Eros in a store, and noticed that after some minutes on my wrist faded away leaving a very weak trial. I decided to buy a bottle anyway, because it was a very hot day and also I don't trust on my nose. Furthermore, the bottle is awesome and I like the smell a lot, it would be in my top 10 if not were by the poor perfomance.

    I have the same results with the bottle I bought, from 2015. The next days I went to another store and asked to test it again, getting the same results. So, after testing 3 bottles the performance is far away of the beast mode that everybody claims. I asked my girlfriend and she neither smell the fragrance. Though the place where I applied the fragrance keep smelling for hours, but this is not the case with my skin. Other people claims the same performance with 2016 batch.

    I think that this was reformulated, with very bad results or they are sending watered down batches to South America.

    Perhaps, I should try it on colder days, the weather is very hot this days.

    Someone who has a 2015/16 can confirm if there was changes in the performance? Everybody says that it has monster projection and great longevity.

    I tried this soon after it came out and I got OK but not outstanding performance from this.

    Got pretty good performance when I sampled.

    Had monster sillage when it came out. Sprayed it in an airport duty-free once on the palm and was embarassed for the entire flight due to how strong it was.

    This is what I hear. Have you tried a 2015/16 bottle?

    When I tried it I had no complaints about performance. There's a kind of myth telling that some time after the release many designer houses dilute the perfumes.

    I bought a 2016 bottle recently and both projection and longevity are pathetic.I cannot smell anything after 30 minutes or so unless I get real close to skin/clothing.

    before buying it I bought a 1ml sampler and it had great longevity and projection.
    who knows when that sample was made..

    I've read many recent complains on various retailer websites about poor longevity and poor performance of Eros.

    at this point I think it's time to forget about Versace Eros and move on.
    there is no point of when a fragrance disappears in less than 1 hour.
    shame of Versace.

    well i own a 200 ml bottle bought from sephora and same is the case with me.its average.need to go heavy with it like 10 sprays.i also have 2017 bottle as its same too.its probably reformulated near 2013-14 and is not the beast that people claim it to be.though it smells delicious but still a waste of money as no one can smell it on me.
