Reviews of Versace pour Homme by Versace

There are 127 reviews of Versace pour Homme by Versace.

A fresh and light neroli. It's a beautiful scent with a kinda strange drydown and 1hr longevity with 4 sprays on my arm. An eau intense flanker with the same DNA would certainly bury most of the freshie market. I think for summer, the de facto choice is this or Eau Fraiche which wins right away with longevity and mass appeal, and even moreso by taking *out* the beautiful neroli that unfortunately is off-putting in some regions where cosmetics for old people and babies are neroli bombs.

Seems like everyone begins their reviews with qualifications. Not me. I just really like this stuff. Perhaps that makes me a lover of mass appealing scents designed to separate me from my cash, but if that is the case, so be it! For me, this is better than any of the Big 3 blues (Sauvage, BdC and YSL Y), because it has a more balanced citrus opening, is less screechy and seems more refined, respectively. I own and enjoy many challenging fragrances for specific types of occasions, but this one just works for everything. I don't think any of its admirers need to apologize for its likeability, flexibility and wonderful smell. Vive le difference!

Call it what you will
A very fine average
Is to be enjoyed.

Having watched various YouTuber reviewers wax poetic about the greatness of Versace pour Homme, I was ready to be wowed (though I take YouTube reviewers' opinions with a mountain of salt). This was one of those scents that I just never got around to trying out, and since there were so many glowing reviews and the fact that it had a "soapy" vibe to it -- which I am a fan of when done right -- I was expecting good things. Well, this is a perfect example of an over-hyped fragrance.

This opens up with a standard citrus/neroli intro and then dives into geranium, sage, and cedar, with base notes being a very nondescript amber/musk as seen in countless other fragrances. I'm not going to take the time to talk about the transitions of the different notes because this scent is so formulaic and generic that it could be a Rite Aid private label product. There is nothing about this scent that is captivating or interesting in any way.

Versace pour Homme is like a cheeseburger from McDonald's. They sell a ton of them, they will quell your hunger, and they don't taste bad, but that's about it. When you think of "good" burgers, McDonald's should not pop up on the list. In fact, you would think that the only people whose list this would appear on would be the ones who are sheltered or don't get out much, and who haven't had the chance to try a "good" burger. Versace pour Homme is the burger you find in every department store at every mall, and there is nothing intrinsically wrong with that. My issue is when we try to make mountains out of mole hills, and that is what's happened with Versace pour Homme. This should be regarded as a blind buy so long as your criterion is, and only is: it needs to be inoffensive. Because that's all this scent has going for it.

I'm giving it a neutral because it's not bad, in and of itself. But as far as a scent receiving undue praise, this one stands out. As much as you hear about it, it's a paper tiger. Sample before you buy, for sure, unless humdrum fragrances are your thing.

Nowadays people seems very eager to drive everything into the Aquatic neighbourhood.
Never understood why its called an aquatic ,very confusing and vague one for me .

Everytime i see immensely positive and cheerful reviews on it ,it prompts me to pull my dust envoloped Versace Pour homme bottle and spray it with a new hope ,and it ends up unveiling nothing unusual than before ,the spritz hits the skin and reaches to dry down like without any liveliness, i assure myself maybe this time i will see what people say ,but no ,its the same flat run .
it feels like VPH has nothing to present us ,all the notes tries to hide behind each other ,not a single one gets the guts to come to the front row, it's lazy in nature.
Is it a citrusy fragrance? No
Theres no citrus at all ,so if you are here for a citrus scent ,forget about it .
No freshness ,no fruitiness ,no airiness ,no florals nor any wetnees of a typical fresh aquatic ,instead its sweet and metallic .
i get a"cold metal sheet " vibe in the top and dry down to me is whole lotta ripe sweet bananas , which doesnt fit in will ,and makes it very wierd and non scent-ish .
similar to allure homme sport ? no ,we forget that AHS has a prominant orange accord ,which VPH doesnt have at all ,so its very easy to discriminate .
all in all its nothing more than an astraying genreless fragrance ,which doesnt fit anywhere .

Have recieved compliments from this one. The longevity of this one on my skin stays till the 4hr range. I somewhat have dry skin since I live in an area where temps are around -10 Celsius. Stays longer in the summer than winter but projects heavier in the winter. Great for business use.
