The ultimate Versace fragrance guide
When it comes to fashion and fragrance, nothing says style like Versace. The global fashion brand has been ruling the roost since their launch in 1978, with their collection of fashionable fragrances coming soon after. The Versace scents are seductive and sensual, capturing femininity and masculinity perfectly.
With a wide range of Versace fragrances for men and women to choose from, where to begin with your shopping? We’re going to run through a few essential fragrance facts to help you with your decision, then highlight some of the bestselling Versace fragrances for men and women. Let’s go...
Eau de Toilette vs. Eau de Parfum - What’s the difference?
Before we dive into the different Versace perfumes, let’s shed some light on the main types of fragrance. You’re bound to have heard the terms ‘eau de toilette’ and ‘eau de parfum’ thrown around, but what do they mean? Are they the same thing or oh-so-opposite? The crux is in the concentration: the two can be differentiated by the percentage of perfume in the formula.
‘So, they’re different to perfume?’ you might ask. When thinking about fragrance, remember that perfume is the neat concentration, not the product you see on the shelves. To douse yourself in pure perfume would be too expensive and overpowering to do on a daily basis. What you’ll spritz instead is either eau de parfum or eau de toilette. Eau de parfum is typically the stronger of the two, made from up to 20% perfume essence per bottle. This will likely come as a spray but don’t overdo it - just the neck and wrists will suffice.
In contrast, eau de toilette is made with just 4-15% of pure perfume essence. This makes it light, airy and suitable to spray all over the neck and body. You might want to use an eau de toilette as your day scent and save your eau de parfum for special occasions like dates and nights out.
