Versace Eros Eau de Toilette for Men
Inspired by Greek Mythology
It’s not surprising that when releasing their first men’s fragrance in half a decade that Versace would return to their classic inspiration—ancient Greece. Inspired by the Greek god of love and son of Aphrodite, Eros begins with masculine notes of lemon and mint, followed by notes of tonka beans and geranium that evoke sensuality. An intense, powerful drydown rounds out the scent, with woody notes of cedar and oakmoss.
- Top notes: lemon, green apple, and mint
- Heart notes: ambroxan, geranium, and tonka bean
- Base notes: Atlas and Virginian cedar, oakmoss, vetiver, and Madagascar vanilla
What Donatella Versace Says About the Fragrance…
“Eros is truly the DNA of the house of Versace. We have a Greek motive making us think about ancient Greece, antiquities and mythology, while turquoise color represents the Mediterranean. That is Versace!”

The Versace fashion house defines its essence as “irreverent luxury expressed by impactful shapes and colors.” But as a Vogue writer once shrewdly observed, the fashion house doesn’t create avant-garde or elegant clothing. Instead “… it makes clothes for red-carpet photo calls in Cannes and parties aboard a rap mogul’s mega-yacht at anchor in Monaco.” Company founder Gianni Versace was also the first to harness the power of celebrity and supermodels at his fashion shows. By combining these with his sexy, bold aesthetic, he helped irrevocably link the Versace name and aesthetic with an aspirational lifestyle.
