    Default Versace Eros Bad Performance

    Hi, I recently bought myself Versace Eros. I read the reviews and I decided to buy it. For me it is nothing special, I thought that it really would be something amazing, but to the point. I bought used a 200ml bottle.
    The code on the bottom of the bottle is OW1643
    Fregnance are 100% original.
    I checked and perfumes were made in 2016, and we have 2019.
    Maybe it's just this odor reduced a little and I should buy a new bottle with earlier date of production?
    The smell quickly evaporates, I spoil myself 3-4 times on the neck and can withstand maybe an hour ...

    Where did you purchase the bottle from?

    When I tried I got very good longevity and silage. I didn't care for it much though.

    I bought from a man from such a portal. He sold because he got a gift, and he does not like the scent. I am from Poland, and he bought it in the USA and brought it to his country.

    I don't like the stuff, it's vile. That being said, it's extremely potent and long lasting, so either you have 1.) a fake or 2.) legit bottle that wasn't properly stored and expired because of some type of exposure.

    I will say yes, after an hour the smell becomes close-minded...

    It has decent performance, but not expect it to be a bomb.

    Not a fan either.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Mine is fine. Not the overpowering bomb it is said to be, but not weak.
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    Just like in majority of posts on this thread-although that does still not make it a subjective factor, based on both individual perception, as much as on skin chemistry-never had any problems with the performance of this scent and in fact would consider it quite the opposite of weak, at least based on all sampling/testing sessions so far

    I bought one from FNet a while back. I'm not sure I even tried it but for what it's worth, although it looks like a regular Versace Eros bottle in which you'd expect EDC or EDT, the label on the bottom doesn't say EDC or EDT. It says body spray or something with those words in it.

    I may have to go get it and give it a try. I would assume that something that says body spray will have an even lower concentration than EDC.

    It's always been mighty to my nose, but I can't account for your experience. Best of luck.

    Eros has been talked about for a while now as being reformed, I think. People may think that the, um, maybe 2017 and earlier bottles are good to go? Or something.

    Versace Eros was actually one of the very first three testers I got from Sephora when I got into fragrances. I got it because I too head heard about the performance being excellent. Much like the OP, I did not find it to perform as nearly as well as I had expected. I chalked it up to reformulation, and moved on.
