Today, I am going to review a perfume by Versace. I am very fond of trying new fragrances and knowing my fetish for the same, my fiance gets me a perfume every time he comes back from his sail. Let’s take a detailed review of “Vanitas Versace” which I got this winters.
Product Being Reviewed:
Price ranges between INR 4000-5000 (source: Google uncle 😛 ) for 100 ml. It comes in a beautiful golden cardboard box, people like Jomol and me too for that matter would buy this for the packaging only as it has so much golden colour associated to it. Jokes apart, it looks really classy and elegant. The bottle is simple with a big cover at the top which again has a leather-like thing covering it and that too in golden colour. It has the name of the brand that is Versace embossed over it. One of the sides has been beautifully crafted with golden detailing. It does not seem like a “bling” perfume even with so much gold and shine. On the contrary, the perfume looks classy, royal, sophisticated and elegant.

My Take on Vanitas Versace Eau De Parfum:
Vanitas Versace Eau de Parfum is the union of pure elements, chosen and combined with harmony. A rich and voluptuous tiare flower sublimated by lime and freesia and enveloped by sensual accents of cedar wood and tonka bean (information from the official website about its fragrance).
Well, I haven’t smelled tiare or freesia, but for me, the perfume opens with a plethora of floral notes which is very pleasant to the senses. Though a little loud initially, but settles down soon. One feels wrapped among deep dark mysterious woods. It uplifts the spirit and the ambience alike.
The perfume stays on for 4-5 hours after which people near by you can’t smell it, but the fragrance stays on the clothes for good 8-10 hours. The staying power is okay as compared to other Versace perfumes which I own.
This one is definitely not for teens or for elder ladies. Women in the mid 20’s and 30’s would like it the most. This fragrance would be a little loud for office wear and should be apt for night-out parties as it has a mystic aroma to it. Also, this scent should be apt for autumn and summers and should be avoided for winters.
Pros of Vanitas Versace Eau De Parfum:
- Beautiful, classy, sophisticated packaging which attracts one towards itself.
- Fragrance is more of a floral kind, which stays for a good 4-5 hours, and very feminine indeed.
Cons of Vanitas Versace Eau De Parfum:
- Not suitable for all age groups.
- Price is a little on the higher side (I would still reiterate price is not a con as such because luxury doesn’t have a price tag).
- Those who don’t like floral scents, may not like this one.
Will I Repurchase/Do I Recommend Vanitas Versace Eau De Parfum?
Don’t know about repurchasing as I have a lot of other names in mind to try, but definitely, I shall recommend it to beauties out here.
