Recommended: Versace Eros

I must recommend a perfume I purchased recently here in Singapore. It’s Eros from the brand Versace. I’ve never owned a Versace product before, but I was pleasantly surprised when I came across this one. In my opinion, it manages to walk the very tight rope between fresh, sporty day-time style and more masculine, heavy night time. Good overall performance!

Until that purchase, I haven’t bought a perfume since 2009. At that point I was heading to Greece to do a summer season in a bar located on the island of Crete. Walking through the tax free on the way to my gate, I realized that I had forgot to bring a perfume for the summer. The tax free store was having some kind of promotion, so I ended up buying three different brands, which has lasted me since. As a matter of fact, most of them are only half finished. And my bathroom cupboard has about 6-7 other perfumes. During my early twenties I went through a perfume-phase where I bought several unusual perfumes with very distinctive character.

My favorite perfume maker is the French luxury brand Givenchy. I think they do a superb job of combining interesting tones into unique perfumes. If I had to pick my all time personal ones, it would be these two:

Day time

givenchy-very-irresistible

Very Irrésistible, by Givenchy. It’s so unique. The smell is kind of reminiscent of green grass mixed with mint and pine. Fresh, sporty, lovely!

 

Evening

PI, by Givenchy. I promise, I didn’t buy it just because I’m a math & physics nerd ha ha. It actually smalls great. This one is a KILLER! Confident masculine presence with the dominating tones of honey, vanilla and cinnamon. You can’t get enough of it.

Life is an adventure! I believe in participating in life - not standing on the side and watching it. Here I will write about all my passions, big and small. Follow my exciting trips around the world as well as my almost normal days at home, wherever it may be at the moment.. If you like inspiration, travel, challenges, training, fashion, self improvement, culture, food and gear - look no further! So to all my stalkers, congratulations! Now you can enjoy watching my life closely at home with your computer, those cold nights with binoculars aimed at my window are finally over. I'll finish my first post by quoting Bilbo (a character in J.R.R Tolkien's The lord of the rings) with a line that ever since I heard it as a child (about 2 years ago) has left a trace in my memory: " It's a dangerous business, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to"
