Eros is a perfume inspired by Greek mythology, with its gods, its palaces and statues. Versace wanted to ‘reveal and release unrestrained passion’. Donatella Versace explains that the fragrance is for ‘a man who is his own master and who defends his own ideas and goals. He is a hero’.
Eros is a ‘fresh, woody and oriental’ fragrance. It opens with mint oil mixed with green apple and lemon. The heart is warmer with tonka bean, ambroxan and geranium. The base notes fuse vanilla, vetiver, oakmoss and Atlas cedar. Perfumer: Aurelien Guichard, Givaudan.
The bottle is a turquoise glass square with a head of Medusa sculpted in the middle of the bottle.
