THE SCI­ENCE OF SCENT

GQ (Australia) - - GROOMING -

TOP NOTES

Like the fashion house that spawned it, Ver­sace ‘Dylan Blue’ was never go­ing to be a clas­si­cal af­fair in the vein of say, an Acqua Di Parma ‘Berg­amot’. For ex­am­ple, grape­fruit adds a crisp fresh­ness, but is the back-up singer to a lush lead of ripe fig.

MID NOTES

Once again, age-old el­e­gance – in the form of earthy or­ganic patchouli – is brought into the now with a dash of black pep­per and un­ex­pected pa­pyrus. Think the scent of a ven­er­a­ble li­brary.

BASE NOTES

Ver­sace’s he­do­nism is in full flow here with saf­fron, incense and min­eral-tinged musk. The re­sult is a con­fi­dent scent that screams lost week­end with a su­per­model in Capri. Yeah, we’re in. Ver­sace ‘Dylan Blue’ EDT, $65 (3Oml), myer.com.au; shop. david­jones.com.au
