Perfume Review: Dylan Turquoise by Versace

With spring around the corner, the spring fragrances start to show up and this time we have a flanker from Dylan Blue Pour Femme by Versace: Dylan Turquoise, keeping the luxurious bottle design but instead of a deep blue we have a crystal clear aquamarine colour that clearly screams summer.  


Sensual, young and fresh, the new Dylan Turquoise fragrance balances the effervescent exuberance of zesty mandarin and primofiore lemon with hints of wood and musk. The vibrant notes are complemented with fruity accents of blackcurrant and guava, as well as jasmine and freesia floral tones. A twist on brand heritage, the elegant bottle has curved lines reminiscent of a Greek amphora, refreshed in a crystalline turquoise tone.

For anyone who has tried Dylan Blue Pour Femme has to be warned that Dylan Turquoise doesn’t smell anything like it, while Dylan blue is an very sweet fruity EDP with a strong presence of peach is quite mostly a winter scent while this new one is definitely a fresh scent with a strong presence of lemon a sweet floral notes together with woods and musk, is a very fresh citrusy scent and we can get that just to see the bottle.

At the top, a burst of light with Primofiore lemon leading the dance, giving a slightly acidic but constant green note. Picked in the very early days of the season, this first winter fruit offers an amazing amount of juice, creating a wonderfully energetic air. The lemon is accompanied by Sicilian mandarin, combining odour molecules from the peel and flesh of the fruit to offer a multi-faceted note. Even more exuberance is added by pink peppercorn, smelling very similar to red berries.The heart notes are what give the fragrance its creativity, with a special accord enhancing the freshness of guava juice for an enduring, exotic and tropical undertone. For a fresh and airy feel, the guava is complemented by transparent jasmine petals with a floral profile enhanced with the essence of freesia, turning the composition into a modern green.The base notes fall between light and shade, where clearwood lends a modernity to the fragrance, combining an amber sensuality with a woody character but leaving no trace of the earthy and camphor notes typical of these essences. Made from sugarcane, this original molecule is the first to be created by biotechnology. Combined with a cocktail of vibrant woods and white musk.

Normally would go for citrusy florals musk scents as they don’t tend to last on my skin and are no really also my personal style, but this one managed to grow on me and just to think of the last very hot summers we have had I certainly would much prefer to wear something sophisticated and refreshing like this. Duration wise it lasted around 6-7 ish hours which is really good considering oher similar options would only last 30 minutes on my skin, the sillage and projection is not massive, you would need to be in a car or just next to the person to be able to wear it which makes it ideal for anyone working in a office or reduced places. 

Dylan Turquoise Pour Femme is available in 30 ml, 50 ml and 100 ml at Boots and Versace’s website
