Versace Man Eau Fraiche was introduced in 2006, as a flanker to 2003’s Versace Man. This masculine woody aquatic fragrance was developed by perfumer Olivier Cresp as a fresher and more aquatic version of the original. This new scent is associated to a Mediterranean vibe, which represents a classic theme in the Italian perfumery.
The construction of Versace Man Eau Fraiche is built upon the combination of citrus, woody and spicy accords, which produced a modern and sensual woody aquatic cocktail. The fragrance opens on an intoxicating fruity combination that feels totally refreshing. Top notes are carambola, white lemon, and rosewood. Then, as the fragrance advances to its mid development stage, it turns to a more herbal facet, sustained by the blend of cedar leaves, tarragon and sage. The dry down is warmer and more personal, thanks to the combination of woody and musky accords. Base notes are: sycamore, musk and amber.
Versace Man Eau Fraiche is hosted in a bottle that reminds of the Versace Man’s flask. The transparent iced turquoise shaded bottle is totally lacking the masculine character, in my opinion, due to its V-shape girlish decorations that are adorning the rims. Anyway, the packaging box is replicating the crocodile skin pattern, with the same color scheme as the glass. The video commercial is short and simple, keeping the focus on the fragrance, instead of hiring a VIP to represent the fragrance. Overall, Versace Man Eau Fraiche is a fragrance for a man who wants something fresh and does not have great expectations from his life.
