The feminine fragrance from Versace called Versense was launched in 2009, as a woody floral musk, developed by the famous perfumer Alberto Morillas. As described on the official website “Versense expresses perfectly the fusion of freshness and sensuality. The name of the perfume suggests a promise of the senses”. As a result, Versense comes as a refreshing breeze and to quote the designer Donatella Versace, this scent mixes “Mediterranean elements with the glamorous sensuality of the Versace woman”.
When I asked my wife to help me with the sampling of this product, she wasn’t very convinced, given that neither one of us is a fanatic of the brand. In spite of that, I discovered a well-behaved scent that benefits mostly from the association with the renowned Italian house and as a conclusion deserves a little attention.
Versense opens with a pungent mix of citruses: green mandarin, bergamot and fig. Then, as the fragrance begins to ages, you will feel the heart, filled with cardamom, swathed in delicate floral accords of jasmine and lily. This whole construction dries down after a couple of hours into a woody base that encompasses white musk, olive wood, Virginia cedar and sandalwood.
The bottle that holds Versense is made of transparent glass and is quite similar to Versace Pour Homme from 2008. The liquid exhibits a light green hue and comes adorned with Versace’s logo in silver, while being topped with a stopper of similar color. For the advertising campaign, the German model Toni Garrn was selected, while the shooting was done by Italian photographer Michelangelo di Battista.
