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


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!

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.
