The new fragrance with the same name as edition Versus from 1992 has been launched in 2010 in a bluish-purple flacon decorated with a see-through blue cap. The new fragrance introduces a brand new composition, which is fresh, playful and celebrates femininity in the same time.

"Versus is pure energy. "- stated Donatella Versace. Her wish is to dedicate this fragrance to strong-willed women who have courage for new challenges. This intense fragrance is based on strong contrasts, from romantic to very rough femininity.

This composition is taking us through various moods of femininity, from punk to melodic notes, from gentleness to roughness.

Top notes of Versace Versus introduce kumquat, star apple (Chrysophyllum cainito) and lemon; a heart is composed of orange blossom, stephanotis and Centifolia rose, while a base finishes with musk, patchouli and ambrette seed.

Versus Versace fragrance is available as 50 and 100 ml EDT, accompanied with 200 ml body milk and 200 ml bath.

My son bought this for me, for my birthday last year and I love it! This time of year I start reaching for the lighter scents.

It's is a fresh clean scent that starts out lemony then turns to a powdery musk with a slight hint of floral. It's great for spring and summer. Light, airy, fresh!

My husband has not complained about it, which is fantastic! He is quick to let me know when what I'm wearing bothers him.

I actually love the smell of this perfume. I just gave a small 30ml bottle as a going away present to my mom for her trip to Montreal tomorrow and she's totally in love with it. The fragrance has a nice smell on her skin. Heavy handed on the initial spray with the lemon, kumquat and star apple but after that the musk and floral bouquets starts coming through and it's such a big delight. It's not floral powdery but real nice, smooth and modern. It's got a good punch to it and lingers for a long while too which is evident of a well concocted fragrance. Kind of reminds me of another perfume my mom likes to wear which is My Givenchy Dream Perfume by Givenchy..though Versus is a much stronger scent. But it smells happy, clean and fresh and most importantly my mother likes it and if she's happy then so am I.

So go ahead ladies and also maybe some gents give it a try, it's quite an enjoyable perfume!!

I sprayed this and D&G Light Blue which are both light and citrusy to me. The amber, and perhaps patchouli, keeps it powdery and earthy. The citrus fades quickly after application. I am left with a "dirty" floral which I like as it doesn't stab my nose like fruity-floral perfumes. It is a bit sweet but the citrus keeps tooth-decay at bay. Not unique but lovely. Inoffensive sillage and scent. Found it many times for $20 at Shoppers and am debating if worth it. I sprayed it in the air and some may have landed on me so hubby smelled it and said I smelled great.

Two sprays on me:
Sillage: hug-me distance
Longevity: about 4 hours

I bought this yesterday and I couldn't wait to try it out!
I simply love the scent which, to me smells more like grapefruit?? and when it drys down only musk...
The problem with this perfume is its longevity, which goes only to 2 or 3 hours.
I am a little disappointed as I expected more, considering its price.

It is very aromatic on me and a bit strange, like concentrated hair shampoo. After some time it becomes barely recognizable, very light, and the base is the best of this scent, to be honest.

I dont know if I share Donatellas opinion about this scent, I got slightley confused when reading that it's dedicated to 'strong-willed women who have the courage for new challenges'

It's a NICE scent, wich I do enjoy, but it's not a head turner or a 'wow, what is she wearing?' kind of scent, not at all. It's a young, (by that I dont mean teenage) but playful and not very serious pefume. It's a light lemony, fruity, airy and a little sweet perfume. It's a to go perfume, it's an easy to wear 'what ever'kind of perfume.

It's probably not the first bottle you will reach for and not the last either. It's for those days when you don't know what to wear and you mainly just want to feel clean and fresh.

Sillage and lasting power is not great, but acceptable. Would say a few hours at most. It's a safe card if you are looking for a gift. Would gladly gift it to girls/women up to 25 if Im not sure about their taste in perfumes.

This is a unique aroma. It gives you the feeling of easiness and always rinda of your feminity. It underlines the lady's excellent taste. The one who wears it is neither strict nor playful. This perfume is perfect for any season, any time of the day, any ooccassion.

It's a good scent for citrus musk lovers but it could only be used effectively in summer or spring time - in cold weather it soon disappears into oblivion. It also is really clean, fresh, energizing, therefore really good for 'sweaty' occasions such as club, gym, outdoors. Great morning-day or office scent as well. Not a full bodied fragrance at all and many probably would find it 'lacking'. It's pretty unisex and versatile. Maybe those who like CK One would find this one appealing as well.

I have been wearing this for a few days now and am absolutely loving it! Fresh citrusy opening calming to a gentle, musky fragrance that lingers at the fork in the road trying to choose between feminine and masculine before finally heading down a warm, subtle feminine path - but just barely. Enjoyable, well named and good for day wear.

I am SOOO disappointed in this fragrance. I purchased it because I assumed it would be similar to the original Versus (my personal fave before it was discontinued). Absolutely nothing alike! Why then, call it the same name - did they run out of ideas? I feel ripped off. It reminds me of a toilet cleaner smell with the exception that toilet cleaner lasts longer. Save your money!

A romantic fragrance. A mouthwatering citrus note welcomes you into this fragrance. Then it tones down projecting a harmeless floral note, a good mix in which I can't detect any flower in particular, and then it develops into a sweet mix of musk and fruit. Pleasant. Glad to know this fragrance. Although... I will always choose something else to put on. It can be a good summer fragrance because all in all it is fresh and not too powerful.

Both yes and no. I am very unsure about this fragrance. It is really in between. Very easy to forget it and choose something else instead. I think it smells good, but it's somehow not enough. It's like a very expensive room refresher.

A very nice floral fruity. Fresh, sweet, has a certain "deodorant" quality to it, but by no means a young girl's fragrance, No! It develops into a nice soapy classic perfume.
I find Versace's perfumes very unique and with alot of character, they resemble no others .My favorites are Versense, Vanitas and Versus (the three v's)

I was so excited to find this fragrance for a steal at TJ Maxx! I have wanted to test it for a long time and I couldn't pass it up!

Versus by Versace didn't disappoint - the opening is a bright citrus and smells a bit unisex one second and totally feminine the next. The florals are subdued, and overall it is slightly musky, but not in a heavy, musty sort of way. I never got much of the patchouli - the fragrance stayed really fresh throughout, even with the musk. This will be wonderful for summer wear! A great fragrance, I highly recommend!

Pink grapefruit dominates in top note. As it dries down, it becomes just a fresh citrus that is pleasant to keep sniffing on my hand. It reminds me of Touch of Pink.

Nice for my gym bag. Currently $20 at Shoppers.

Sillage: about a foot for the first hour; close to skin afterwards
Longevity: about four to five hours

Had this one on my "I want" list for some time and was so excited to find it in Marshall's the other day. I was not dissapointed - this is a great fresh summery scent. I tested it when I got home in the evening. First, it seems too strong, too citrusy, too fresh, but let it settle down a bit and some sweet warm notes appear, so soft and quiet, so nice. The next morning when I woke up I still could smell it. Clean, musky, subtle scent. But I think it will be more suitable for spring and summer time. It's not cozy enough for winter/fall when you want your perfume to embrace you like a warm blanket. It's fresh, bright, uplifting scent. Very good. I am going to wear it in the sunny spring or summer days. Great for office I think.

in the opening all i get is a sweet lemon, which already bothers me a bit since i dont like lemon or citrus scents. after that it develops into a muskier scent with some patchouli while the lemon lingers on. the dry down reminds me of a soft men's perfume and i can easily see this scent as a unisex fragrance. i dont get the white florals or the rose or the star apple at all. definitely not impressed with this fragrance. its not bad but i would not buy a full size nor would i wear this...

I absolutely love it, it's floral and sweet. I am just fascinated about soft perfumes. It's the second perfume I've tried and I fell in love with it immediately, and it's not over-powering at all.(I would throw up if I ever smell something overpowering) The disadvantage is,it's JUST floral, nothing else. I would recommend it to be worn at the day, as it's very gentle and approching. Suitable for sweet and quite girls.

I've had it for about two years. I really liked it in the beginning, I used to wear it for special occasions, especially on spring and summer nights. The other day I tried to use it but I couldn't. I had to wash it off immediately because I didn't feel comfortable with it. Now it smells too fruity for my taste. I don't know what it is that bothers me, perhaps some tropical fruit with a very sharp smell. (The middle and base notes are fine, although I can hardly smell the dry-down because to my disappointment is has poor longevity.) It may have gone off or I've changed a lot.
Update: I didn't give up so I kept trying it. Even if it's supposed to be a spring/summer scent, in my experience it works best if the weather's mild or it gets cooler towards evening!! It seems like the summer heat brings out the fruity notes more strongly, which I dislike. In early and mid-autumm it works well with my body chemistry. And suprise, suprise: lately I've found it longer lasting.

Versus starts out as a pleasant bright, citrus scent. After a few minutes I experience something akin to a fruity calone note, maybe its the alleged "star apple" noted in the pyramid above. Within 35 minutes Versus morphs into a dirty, white floral with a flat, moldy patchouli note and stays the same from then on.

Sillage: 3 feet
Longevity: 4 hours
Overall rating and feel: 3/10. Sadly, this doesn't feel particularly well made, nor does it have much to positively distinguish itself from the pack of mass release fruity florals. If you're looking for a fruity white floral with a citrus opening and a patchouli base try Cristobal by Balenciaga. Trust me, you'll be much happier with your purchase.

Wow! I'm glad I double-checked this fragrance before tossing out the sample vial I have. I tested it a few weeks ago and promptly jumped in the shower after putting it on. I was getting only strong, stinging floral notes. It hurt my nose. Must have been a bad night.

I gave it one more chance, and I am surprised to say that I really like it! I'm getting the warmer base notes this time. An earlier reviewer mentioned that this fragrance reminds her of people who go to clubs. I agree, but I think of it in a positive way. I would wear this when I am feeling extraverted, especially on a summer night. I think it's a very sexy and sweet fragrance.

It's funny. Now that I think of it, Versus also reminds me *slightly* of a fragrance I used to wear when I went out years and years ago (Samba). Must be that fruity/floral thing.

picked this one up today- 3.4oz for $30.00
very nice fragrance! I had liked this in an department store, but i am glad i waited and didn't pay full retail.
versus is a soft sweet feminine fragrance. its fruity and citrus but not too sweet, the rose blends nicely with the fruity notes and the musk makes it soft and classic.

it is not the most original scent but it is pleasing and not obnoxious to to others, I am glad to have it as an addition to my perfume collection.The bottle is also very pretty which is always nice :)

Weirdly, I've actually seen this in several department stores in the mes cologne section. It's refreshing with citrus and floral notes. From what I can smell, I find it to be closer to cologne for some reason than to a perfume but it does have properties of both hence the name "versus". If you want to be adventurous, try it out.

I have sometimes been pleasantly surprised by the house of Versace, and am happy to be able to report that VERSUS now joins the ranks of BLONDE and WHITE JEANS among other quite decent creations in this line. I think that I was particularly surprised in the case of VERSUS because Pavlovian conditioning led me to expect the worst from the purple packaging: a purple fruit synthetic nightmare of one kind or another. Then, when I saw that this perfume was categorized as a fruity-floral, I braced myself and thought seriously about drawing a preemptive bath.

In fact, against all evidence, VERSUS is a well-constructed citrus scent with a substantial and shimmery clean musk base, imparting a resinous quality which makes it a touch more perfumey than most citrus scents (such as Moschino FUNNY!). This is also somewhat more floral, while however remaining predominantly a citrus composition. All in all, very nice, and while I don't need a bottle, I'll definitely consider adding it to my collection should a propitious opportunity arise...

It's a good perfume I think. Versace has really created these kind of perfume that you cant really hate or find it kinda like too much.

The opening is fresh, and interesting and it also smells like passion fruit to me. A lil sweet, a lil sour, mix with some white floral notes I guess. In general, it's like a perfume for the happy/ bubbly girl with a lot of energy.

But the dry down is not so much. LIke something is missing in between.

I wrote this off at first because, at the time, I wasn't much into "designer" perfumes (Gucci/Versace/Diesel/etc.) I read the notes on the little paper scent card at Macy's and couldn't help myself. I was surprised; it's fruity, playful, and just...happy. So bright and summery. I don't get the biggest hit of the citrus at first, on my skin the star apple and rose are most obvious, even on the dry down. This would be a nice beach or poolside fragrance.

I just got this perfume. I tried it few days ago in the store on my skin...At the end of the day I still had it on me...It smelled different but I liked how it blended with my skin. I've read so many negative reviews...I do not understand why the did not like it. I found it interesting and dinamic. I like how it starts and at the end I like this musky - patchouli notes. It's not a "cheap" smell at all. However, I can not say that I'm in love with it...I just liked Versace Versus and bought it for my collection and oing to wear it when I have a mood for it. ;-) Well, I guess everybody can have a different opinion.

Versus opens with extremely strong kumquat. It's very fresh at first, but the drydown is a lot less citrusy and a bit warmer and cozier, which I like much better. Overall, I find this perfume to be very average, nothing really special. It seems like it could work under the Paris Hilton brand and reminds me of people who go out clubbing; a fun trendy fragrance. I would like to see Versace come out with a really intriguing, classic perfume for once.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update (Dec. 2013): I have to eat my words a little bit. While this perfume is not especially compelling, I really do like the base. I was not willing to fork over the money at Sephora, which I have regretted ever since because I still actually think about the perfume and wish I had bought it. And then today--voila! There it was at a discount store, a 3.4 oz. bottle for very cheap. I seized the moment, and it is now part of what I refer to as my "Italian collection" (I like Italian perfumes).

first thing is first:
nothing to do with the vampire original versus (black cherry colored bottle)
i'm a bit peeved that they would give this the same name? why??
completely different bottle/design/and smell.
why not be original and give a new name?
anyway....
this is a fun light youthful fragrance, a 180 degree turn from its predecessor.
all about the bright lemon for the first hour
that peaks with pink rose and musk in the drydown.
*******
i'm truly surprised this is a versace???
between this one and vanitas...well lets just say i'm underwhelmed
at their offerings and overwhelmed
at their very high price tags.
a bit too ordinary and mediocre to have versace on the bottle imo
yet---i don't want this to come across as me not liking this perfume.
but "LIKE" is as far as it goes. will never make me weak, swoon, lustful, in love etc.
no "wow" factor, just blends in pleasantly.

How lovely!

It is a bit warm here today and needed something more crisp and refreshing than my usual wearings.
This fits the bill!

It's all about the citrus! And thankfully it isn't sharp, pungent, fake citrus. It is refreshing, light, and crisp. The lemon and kumquat are the main things that show up with my chemistry. Simply stunning!

The dry down is sweeter and creamier than I thought it would be with just a hint of rose balanced by the musk so it isn't cloying.

For me, this is the perfect spring/summer scent as I prefer warmer creamier scents for fall and winter. But, I can see myself wearing this as a pick-me-up!

I like the opening notes of this fragrance, definitely a sharp citrus. However, the base notes are just not that appealing on my skin- too musky by far. It stays on well, but I would not really say that I like Versus at all. It seems too...aggressive, somehow, and too musk. Except for the slight soapiness and the fresh citrus opening, not a perfume I would wear.

On one hand it's fresh and citrusy and then changes almost to rough and very loud, powdery scent, which I find very alluring. It stays all day.
It's scent I'd never bought tested on paper, but on me it's great. I have a decant of only few ml left :(, some it leaked on the way, received from dear friend Nathalie Z.

Ok it's nice, that's for sure, but not so interesting. That's the problem when you create a floral fruity, it simply can be like many others, nice but common. I smell a lot of apple in it, which I like, lemon and rose. That's all I can smell, no heart, no base, no drydown, only top notes fading away quite soon, young cheerful, fresh top notes. I like it but wouldn't buy a full bottle.

My boy-noise likes this and hopes my girlfriend will like it too, but my girl nose might fins it typical.
It smells like a shampoo I once used, which, to the boy part of me, is a very nice, sweet, fruity floral. But to the girl part of me, smells like shampoo, so is a turn off, and only worth a cheap purchase for casual days.

This perfume bring fantasy to me... It make me float in the air, but after 5 minutes, I'm drop dead because it poison me. The smell starts with purple violet kinda smell, then burst of fruity smell. I thought it will become softer, but I'm wrong. The scent remain strong and I just can't take it anymore. Not for my taste.

Interesting reviews.
I find this fragrance to be fantastic!
In fact I am wearing it right this second. And I'm a guy... it lasts all day on me. I can smell it rather clearly without harsh movement or sniffing myself & I applied it about 5 hours ago.. 10stars for that!

It's clean, cool yet a bit warming, calm & just down right delicious. I truly despise fragrances that evolve as the drydown ensues. I only like those which retain the initial scent from beginning to end

Versus stays exactly the same on me from start to finish and quite frankly it never really "finishes" unless I shower it off - it even lasts through a modest workout. It's so dreamy.

I like this perfume. But I wouldn't wear it, because it tends to become too overpoweringly fruity and rosy. I like the first burst of citruses, and the dry down is also very good; but somewhere in between, it just feels too much.

"versus" is almost a copy of "burberry brit sheer", to my nose. this is is supposed to be what a confident, courageous woman smells like? maybe that woman's 13 year old daughter! what a disappointment!

I don't like this, sorry but it's very similar to Flora by gucci, a little more citrus and less sweet. I don't even know why Versace created these irrelevant fragrance.

Nothing original, Nothing irreplaceable..

Nice, but nothing new.

Just smells like a mash up of many other Fruity Florals rolled into one.

-it's also quite harsh on the nose!

I had very high hopes for this one b4 it premiered...I tried this one for about the 3rd time this past weekend and my opinion still hasnt changed, its very citrusy and rather on the "blah" side... It doesnt seem that much thought went into this one unfortunately... I do however, like the bottle.

I tested this today, I was very excited to see the advertisement on the window as I had been waiting to test this. I used to wear the original Versus in the red bottle and also Versus V/S. This one is very fresh and energizing, not as potent as V/S but still has that lemon lime scent but this one has a little sugar added. The bottle is very nice too!!! Hopefully I can find it at a good discount as I would not pay full price for it.

First sniff: fresh, zesty, energetic, effervescent, crisp citrus note with a tinge of sourness and bitterness to it. It is definitely not "me", not something I would love. If I had smelt it blindly, I would have bet my bottom dollar that it is a men's cologne. I am relieved that this freshness does not last long on my skin, it develops to unveil sweetness of fruit, maybe its the apple and some florals, maybe its the rose combined with something soapy and musky. I think the element of connection is missing between the opening and the rest of the notes in the perfume. Given the name, it maybe deliberate!

I totally get the contradiction in Versus, to me it is
men's cologne VS women's perfume,
fresh VS floral fruity,
citrus VS me!

The design of the bottle is simple but not so appealing to me. I can't see myself wearing it even though I wear Versace Eau Fraiche with love. For someone who loves fresh fragrances, it is perfect. I am sure that it will be a hit for the coming months of spring/summer here in Australia.

A fresh, intense and enveloping fragrance for the modern, confident, and seductive woman. Romantic and intense, compelling and melodious, feminine and strong are the contrasting characteristics that make the fragrance unique. Versus is pure energy!

Despite the fact that fruity florals don't tend to rock my boat, Versus is something that I'd gladly wear, however I don't think I'd ever purchase.

Versus is the re-released, somewhat altered version of Versus Donna which has long since been discontinued. Like many reviewers here have mentioned, this is nothing like the original.

This fragrance is your typical fruity floral. Upon my first application I likened this fragrance to the scent of orange-y shampoo. Idealistically clean and feminine. The star apple provides a somewhat crisp feel.

The floral heart does feature, however like Ouch! mentioned, the citruses tend to dominate. On my skin I detected subtle hints of jasmine, however the rose and stephanotis were lighter still, which slightly unbalanced the scent for me.

I'm not exactly sure as to where the patchouli got to, because it wasn't earthy and mossy like it's supposed to be. Musk was more like the monster in this fragrance.

I understand that Versace has decided to run with the ever-so-popular fruity floral idea, however it would have been nice to experience something a little different. In my opinion, there are way too many fragrances that smell like shampoo and soap these days. It annoys me to think that in several days I'll find it difficult to remember exactly how this fragrance smelt due to its lack of originality.

A very citusy scent, with underlying notes that make it grown-up. It has a lot of energy, but I wouldn't call it sensual or feminine at all. Made for the woman who is determined and doesn't get easily fooled. Not my type of scent though- i prefer the vanilla-based ones.

Versus is an okish summer/ spring fragrance. It is quite unlifting and zesty this is due to the citrus notes. I am not a massive fan of citrus which is probably why i am not overly excited about it. For me this scent does not smell very natural i find the orange blossom very annoying and quite clinical. I can however apprciate it smells really good on others. I think it just doesnt sit well on me.

The type of lady i see wearing this is modern, strong and raring to go. She is full of energy like this fragrance. She doesnt need something sweet, cutsy and overbearing. She gets the job done and she is quite minimalistic with crisply ironed clothes, i imagine a nice suit, her personal appearance is immaculate.

This perfume smelled lovely on me, despite the fact that I generally shy away from anything remotely fruity. However, when I smelled both of my wrists to compare it to another scent less that fifteen minutes later, it was gone! I even checked with other people to see that it wasn't just my less than perfect nose, but nobody could even tell I had anything on. Such a shame, because the top was truly lovely. Light and girlish, but not immature.

I found this scent sickly sweet. I find it lacks complexity - I just get one overpowering whiff of sweetness. It reminded me of a cheap bath soap.

I had some confusion at the tester today - this ACTUALLY smelled like men's cologne. The heavy spicy kind. Bitter citruses and nondescript florals before settling into deep patchouli territory. Isn't this supposed to be light and summery? It came out surprisingly woody for me. Like something my brother would wear. No thank you.

Versus is at first half hour fruity and delightful perfume, to me no citruses were prominent, and even at this point I wouldn’t call versus extra fresh or clean scent. More like happy, youthful and charming.

The opening was the only thing I liked about Versus. Afterwards scent becomes sweet, floral and serious. Not serious in terms of classic scents, gets linear, boring and stuffed. To me overpowering with dusty sweetness, reminded me also on Cheap&Chic which I don’t like for the same notes. Has something in the vein of Burberry scents and I think that lovers of Brit, Weekend, London will enjoy Versus.

I wouldn’t be able to wear it, still I think that many women will find it appealing.

Reminds me very much of Moschino Cheap & Chic. This one is softer but has the same powdery smell in the base notes added a little bit of tangerine on top.

This is such a gorgeous scent, I love the fruity opening, and the floral notes mixed with the ambery drydown.

very seductive, I wish i could wear this lol but being a man it would be wicked obvious that I was wearing a female scent, i'm wondering it if could layer this with something to make it masculine because it's almost hypnotic in some way.

A deeper floral fruity. I can mostly smell fruits in it, especially the apple. For me, once it settles down it becomes a sweet green apple scent mixed with patchoulli. Patchoulli happens to be one of my least favourite notes, however I think that floral fruity lovers should try this as I find that this perfume is quite distinct to my nose.

I don't have much to add to the other reviews, but I must say that this perfume smells like REAL fruits! Not the sharp / plastic / alcoholic / sickly sweet ones you encounter nowadays.
I can't detect the specific notes, but the whole composition is so appetizing!
But it's not only about fruits. There's something more there ... For me it seems like a fragrance with a lot of wind and space.
Not similar to any perfume I've tried before. The bottle seemed unappealing to me, but I'm so glad I've tried it :)

Finally have my bottle and I do like it. ;') I can smell and identify the notes pretty clearly. It is fresh, fruity, citrusy, sweet, soft and mildly warm .


Update:
I did like it but found it boring after a few days. So, I sold my bottle. Overall it is okay and smells like a nice soap. But it isn't that great and doesn't really stand out. It's just "meh" for me. ;'/

This is trully beautiful. I also love citrusy scents. Although this is not the normal super fresh/clean citrus scent. It's playfully and spontaneous! And don't worry if u really dislike patchouli as I do.. u can't sense it here. I've tested it twice and hope to buy it soon!

The citrus scent is very present indeed. A good one for summer I'd say. It is long lasting so if you like citrus notes, it's a good one.

This perfume is completley dominated by citrussy notes. The lemon is very prominent and it's been drying for nearly 50 minutes. The african orange flower makes the heart of this perfume citrussy further.

It's verging on washing up liquid to my nose, NICE washing up liquid don't get me wrong, but..it's teetering on the egde of ew!

There are no florals to speak of to my nose, maybe the barest whiff...but these powerful citrusses are just stomping all over the other notes shouting..."We live here...go away".

I'll see how it fairs once it's completley dry...

Drier still...I get no musk from this whatsoever, no earthy patchouli...just sharp biting clean citrus.

Really I didn't expect such delicate, tendre and rich fragrance from the Versus line and from the bottle like that. The opening is rather ordinary - fruity floral, but then the fragrance becomes creamy, powdery and rosy, and there appears an insolent note, that make Versus original and memorable. Great!

This fragrance is the first fragrance after a long time that brought me back the hope. Before smelling this perfume, all my hopes in fragrance industry were lost.

I was so frighten that this industry lost its ability to create smth new and original, that I bought for myself some fruity shampoo fragrances to try it. And for couple of weeks I tried to enjoy these shampoos in glam bottles.

But...I tested Versus and...Tadah! I knew it that we can still create more and more interesting aromas.

First you feel smth fresh and almost indistinguishable, but then the roses explode and ...the result is magic. It is smth fresh but also creamish and in the same time very delicate.

Try it and you won't regret it. It is a summer fragrance but it has temper and originality.

I tried this. Great, great, great! I must buy a bottle:)
First, the floral notes open, later the scent became powderly.
In my skin it's long lasting.
It's not similar Versus Donna( I have a bottle from that).
