Longevity And Projection Compared

Dylan Blue: Moderate
Versace Eros comes in a blue bottle with a Medusa head design. The bottle has a luxurious feel and looks sophisticated. The cap of the bottle is gold, which adds a touch of elegance.
Versace Dylan Blue comes in a blue bottle with a metallic cap. The bottle has a minimalist design, which looks elegant and modern. The metallic cap adds a touch of luxury to the bottle. The sprayer is gold with “Versace” on it.
To me, Versace Eros is more than a clubbing fragrance. Don’t get me wrong. It is a great scent to wear out to bars to meet the ladies. But, you can go lighter on the sprays and wear it to work or most anywhere. Just make sure to spray less than you would for a night out at a crowded bar.
Dylan Blue is the ultimate blind reach fragrance. At least to me it is. It is great when I am in any mood, and I wear it formally, casually, to church, or to work. It is casual and classy. I really like Dylan Blue a lot. Even though it is a mass pleasing “Blue” scent, I get a lot of use from it even though I have a large collection.

I personally do not get a lot of use from Versace Eros EdT anymore. It is a little too sweet and young smelling for me. It still smells incredible, it is just not for me.
Dylan Blue is still something a spray on myself often. Both of these fragrance made our list of the top smelling Versace colognes for men. Eros is probably the more popular one overall, but my choice is on Dylan Blue.
