Versace 'Vanitas' Eau de Parfum
This is the perfect spring/summer fragrance. You can save it for those special times, or wear everyday. I'm hooked and have been wearing it daily and have received so many compliments. It lasts for hours and you don't need alot of it; its base notes are smooth vanilla and cedear wood and its soft and flirty. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to feel and smell absoluately beautiful--all day. Thanks again to the experts at Perimeter Mall, Atlanta. They have the best customer service and are knowledgeable about the products. You all rock!
This is a great perfume! It has a pleasant scent.
Now that said, when i got the perfume, the top was stuck on so hard i couldn't pull it off without force. I had the same problem putting the top back on properly, pushing it hard. The smell was also a bit to harsh for my liking. Maybe a bit on the dry side where I prefer more on the sweet side. It reminded me of my grandmothers perfume, strong and distinct.
I returned it and purchased a different perfume instead.
Vanitas is a lush, rich floral that begins with heady Tahitian Gardenia and a hint of sparkling lime. It's very much a "tropical island in a bottle" fragrance. I smell a little freesia after awhile, but, on me, this is all about the jasminey notes. After a bit, it abruptly becomes a very light woodsy scent. Usually I have great luck with fragrances lasting on my skin, but, to my sadness, Vanitas just won't stay with me. I will try again when the weather is hot, because that makes a huge difference in how my fragrances behave. Vanitas begs for hot weather, when fragrances bloom on me. I love, love the scent of Vanitas...it's amazingly beautiful, and when I wear it, I'm in perfume heaven for about an hour. Vanitas smells like a "date night" scent to me. It's not what I would wear in an office, or running around doing errands. It's a seductive, summer night perfume that's both bright and sultry.
So nice and fresh!
Normally I would save this for spring, but it's too good not to wear now! Freesia smells so close to jasmine, and this fragrance is not heavy at all. In fact, after about four hours you hardly smell it at all but a little vanilla and the cedar base note. The vanilla fragrance is not heavy but there is a definite presence. LOVE the cedar wood as the base note. This smells so good I wear it at night when I go to bed and spray it on my pillow! Just a generally nice, light, floral scent popped with vanilla and cedar. PERFECT for me!
