Eros is the first in the past five years to be launched and aimed at men. Donatella V’s desire was to fit the fragrance into the concept and to depict style and significance of long-lasting design, quality and popularity. “Eros is truly the DNA of the house”
– explains Donatella. “We have a Greek motive making us think about
ancient Greece, antiquities and mythology, while turquoise color
represents the Mediterranean.
Eros was created by Aurelien Guichard of Givaudan and it was announced as fresh, woody and slightly oriental.
The fragrance includes mint oil combined with green apple and Italian
lemon. Warmth is provided by tonka mixed with Venezuelan ambroxan and
geranium flowers giving a fougere twist to the fragrance this way.
