THE SCIENCE OF SCENT
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.
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.
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
