I received a bottle of Versace Red Jeans perfume as a birthday present from one of my daughters friends last year, I've actually never been too impressed with Versace in any form (I know, call me a heathen!) but have been pleasantly surprised with this fragrance despite a couple of negative points.
The bottle comes in a smart tin (which my daughter took up to her bedroom immediately to store some of her art 'bits' in) and the bottle itself is an lovely feminine pink/red colour and shaped to be a chunky but very cute glass bottle. It's a spray perfume and the spray mechanism has worked beautifully thus far, never sticking and dispensing the perfect amount of perfume with each spray - it does spray in a reasonably wide arc so you need to watch out when spraying around other people that when you're spritzing your neck you don't inadvertently give the person standing behind you a face full of Red Jeans!
In my opinion the fragrance itself is best suited for younger women, and I say this after a couple of my older relatives tried it and said it was far too 'young' smelling for them to wear, in my opinion perfume is ageless so older ladies could certainly wear it but you do need a pretty youthful outlook to get away with this one - in much the same as the very sweet Britney Spears fragrances tend to suit younger women in the main, although obviously as with everything there's always an exception! This one is very floral but has a sugary powder quality, which is what gives it such a young edge - it's very sweet with the sugary tones coming through with the middle notes, it's very apparent that this is where the floral fragrance mellows into a more candied scent and I'm sure if I concentrated I could actually pinpoint the moment Red Jeans changes from top to middle.
The top notes include freesia, apricot and peach with all three being apparent in a surprisingly natural form from the very first spray of perfume. Personally I think the freesia element is the strongest but my daughter (who also wears Red Jeans sometimes, her own small miniature which she received as part of a gift set) thinks its sweetly fruity at first, although at almost seventeen she's mentioned the fact that she finds the floral tone a bit too heavy for her tastes when mingled with the fruity elements. The top notes don't linger for long and are replaced within an hour by a floral bouquet, which to my nose is a blend of rose and lily amongst other scents. It's by no means an 'old lady' bouquet and retains the sweetness that started to develop during the period when the top notes are at their strongest - at this time it reminds me of a bouquet of flowers I received when I had my son; the bouquet was mainly carnations and tiger lilies and the scent was absolutely beautiful (if very, very short lived), to me Red Jeans smells just like this for a little while and really takes me back to a happy place.
The base notes are absolutely the best part of Versace Red Jeans, and are also the reason why I suggested earlier that it's a fragrance for women in their late teens and through their twenties - it builds to such a very simple sweet tone that once you're past this age you really do risk the perfume not suiting you, and that's not to be derisory to anyone as I include myself (at 37 - eugh) in the bracket of risking smelling of Mutton by Madonna and I definitely keep an eye on myself whenever I use it! I love the way the sweet candy tone running through the perfume intensifies to create a robust vanilla burst which lasts from this point until the perfume dies away a couple of hours later, my partner hates the sweetness of Red Jeans and comments on it every time I wear it - sometimes making choking motions (when he's in a playful mood), at other times asking 'why I'm wearing that cheap s&*t again' (when he's not). There's a hint of a trail of musk running alongside the sweeter base notes but this isn't particularly *there* as a scent in its own right, more like it pushes along to create a subtle musky sensation than something you can actually 'smell'.
From start to finish I find Red Jeans by Versace has a relatively short lifespan, needing to be reapplied after roughly four hours. When first sprayed I find the top notes are pretty strong but soon after this the perfume fades to a point where I have to actually sniff my skin for a reminder of where in the journey I am with the fragrance, I can smell it around me in clouds and wafts at other times but it has a tendency to disappear quickly which is quite annoying. I'd recommend Red Jeans for daytime wear thanks to the lack of longevity and also the fact that it just hasn't got the staying power to be any good on a night out - and to be honest, although it's a lovely perfume I have others I'd wear in the evening before this one. It's one of those middling fragrances - I don't wear it very often, but when I do I enjoy smelling so sweet compared to the heavier perfumes I usually favour (even if I feel like I'm spraying myself all day long sometimes!).
I haven't bought Red Jeans myself but in Superdrug yesterday I noticed the 75ml bottle cost £12, which I think represents super value for money - it's a fun perfume which smells delicious, but bear in mind it will possibly be one of those you don't use too often as if you're anything like me you'll need to be 'in the mood' for Red Jeans so a £12 price tag is more than fair. I'll definitely replace my bottle when it's used up, although it's still more than half full (showing how much I've used it in the past fourteen months!) so this will be a while yet.
Versace Red Jeans is not a fragrance I usually would have bought myself, but when I was round at a male friends house recently I raided his fragrance shelf and I spotted Versace Blue Jeans, which is the male version. I tried it and I was quite impressed so when I then saw it on offer in Boots for just over £11.00 I bought a bottle to give to my fiancé as part of his Valentine's Day present!
At a later date I found the female version, Red Jeans at the same price so I decided to buy myself a bottle.
~ Price and availability ~
Red Jeans is only available to buy in 75ml bottles and is available from Boots, still at the reduced price of £11.02 (RRP £22.50).
It is also available at Superdrug for £14.99 or cheapsmell.com for £15.45.
~ Packaging ~
The perfume comes in a cylindrical tin. The tin is tall and quite narrow and is red in colour with 'Versus Red Jeans Woman' on the front with a cartoon picture of a woman in red jeans underneath.
It is an eau de toilette and it comes in a 75ml bottle.
The lid of the tin is firm, but it can be pulled off easily and the tin is lined with thick yellow card to protect the bottle.
The bottle itself is about 5 inches tall and it is in the shape of a drinks bottle, narrowing towards the top. It is made from clear glass and the fragrance itself is a red/pink colour.
The front of the bottle has the words, 'Versus Red Jeans Woman' again in yellow lettering.
The lid of the bottle is made from red clear plastic and it has a picture of a lion embossed on the top of the lid. It is very detailed.
~ Scent ~
The scent is light and very fruity.
It has top notes of peach, apricot, freesia and blackcurrant.
The heart notes are lily of the valley, violet, waterlily and rose.
The base notes are sandalwood, musk and vanilla.
I can detect all of the fruity notes in this fragrance. The blackcurrant stops it from becoming overly sweet. I can detect the florals in this perfume, but I think the fruity notes dominate it.
It is rich and think it has an, almost, fizziness to it. It reminds me of fruity fizzy drinks.
It has a very distinctive scent and I haven't smelled another fragrance like it.
I really like the scent of this fragrance.
I think it is more of a day time scent and being a cheaper fragrance it is probably one I would wear casually - to go to work or to go shopping. Although it is a light fruity-floral scent I don't think it is a summery fragrance and I'd say it is suitable to wear all year round.
I think this fragrance is probably best suited to younger women as it is quite sweet and juicy, but I think it has enough depth for older women to wear it as well.
I have been impressed with the staying power of this fragrance as well. It is an eau de toilette, but it lasts for a good 8 hours before wearing off.
~ Conclusion ~
I really like this fragrance. It is really fruity and pleasant.
I don't think anyone could find it offensive, but it is rather sweet.
The bottle is not one I would have gone for, but I do quite like it. I keep the bottle in its tin whereas all of my other perfumes are out of their boxes. The tin is quite bright, but my dressing table is so chaotic with different perfumes that it doesn't particularly stand out.
I think this perfume is a bargain price and I would recommend it.
I intend to buy Baby Rose Jeans by Versace, which is a limited edition and is available in a 50ml bottle. I also want to get Baby Blue Jeans, also a limited edition, for my fiancé.
I think Versace Red Jeans would make a nice gift, that will not break the bank and its staying power is great too, making it even better value for money!
Ive been given a few bottles of these over the last year as birthday/christmas presents and I do love the scent. I wouldnt say its a scent for parties but more for everyday going to work/round a friends.
The perfume comes in a red tin which can be reused (unlike most perfume packaging which are usually elaborate boxes). It could be a good container for hairclips/jewellry/buttons etc. Inside is the perfume bottle which has a red lid with a clear glass bottle with a raised design. I like that its clear as you can see how much product is left in the bottle. The perfume itself is a pink colour which looks nice with the red lid.
Its hard to describe the scent its kind of fruity and floral. Its made up of a mix of jasmine, musk, sandalwood,lily and vanilla.
Its not an overpowering smell and does last the majority of the day. The scent does seem to linger longer on clothes than it does on skin.
You can currently pick up at 75ml bottle of this in superdrug for £14.99 which I'd say is a great price for a decent perfume. It would also make a great gift (if you're picking up any late Christmas gifts or any birthday gifts).
I use a few different bottles of perfume so I couldnt say how quickly this would be used if you only used this however despite using it on many occasions i have two bottles both over half full as with this perfume a little goes a long way.
Versace: Red Jeans is the perfect scent for everyday wear. It is not too overpowering, but it lasts all day. The sweet, fruity notes are perfect for every occasion, and as the scent is so long lasting, you only have to apply it once a day.
I have loved perfumes since I was a little girl and my mum would let me try the tester perfumes in Boots. I have worn many different ones but I always come back to Versace: Red Jeans. Despite the small price tag, it leaves a big impression. It is the only perfume that I have always been complimented on, regardless of the situation. Even though I wear a variety of perfumes for special occasions, I just keep going back to this scent.
The packaging is unusual as it comes in a highly decorated red tin, making it perfect for popping into a suitcase when going on holiday, or putting into your handbag, knowing that it is more protected. The glass bottle itself is also highly decorated, and the hint of pink in the perfume adds to the light, feminine feel. The bottle is a good size, and weight, and is easy to use.
This perfume is readily available, and very affordable. Whilst I often feel as though I cannot justify the cost of some perfumes, there has never been a question with this one. Less than £15 for a product that makes me feel good and gets me lots of compliments is a bargain in the perfume world! Most health and beauty stores stock it as well as certain everyday stores. Versace is a well known and highly respected brand, and as well as the connotations the brand has, you also can be sure that they have put alot of thought into the product. No corners have been cut and it shows.
I first received this perfume as a gift from my father - something bought in the airport from one of his many trips abroad. Wearing the perfume now really brings back lovely memories of this being my first ever perfume. There was something so exciting at the age of 13 to own a perfume but such a well known and established brand such as Versace - to me it really spoke of quality and expense. This perfume is complete sensory nostalgia whether you've owned it before or not simply because is has a retro design and smell. It was created in 1994 so it is a little dated but considering how cheaply you can get hold of it I still think it is a good buy.
The bottle is made of glass with intricate patterns in the glass which are very pretty. It definitely has a retro feel to it - it looks like a vintage perfume bottle and for some reason (perhaps the cut of the glass) reminds me of French glass wear. The liquid inside is a paler version of the red lid - a sort of pinky/peachy mixed with orange and red tones. I know that the bottle and the design seem outdated, there is no question of that, and for some that may be off putting. I do think though that the bottle manages to move from the outdated category and into something slightly kitsch and retro looking - which I really like. It also makes it a very versatile gift, you really good give this to your grandmother, mother, friend, daughter etc. It has a timeless feel about it because of the vintage edge which I think really sets it apart from more modern fragrances.
The perfume has a strong fruity, floral scent which blends jasmine, sandalwood, vanilla and lilly. It has a very distinctive smell which to me evokes memories of being young and carefree. I may be a minority though because this perfume literally transports me to my own youth. For those of you who have not tried this scent before it may seem like a very strong smell. I know when I smell anyone else wearing it I can instantly place it. I do think though in a world of perfume where many scents fail to be interesting and unique this one does stand out. It is a strong, independent and different take on a fruity floral perfume that I think few other brands have achieved. I wouldn't say it is a signature scent but it is perfect for an evening out or a special event as you know it really will last and people will be able to smell it.
The perfume retails at £22.50 for 75ml which is a very cheap price for a designer brand. The price obviously reflects the popularity and age of the perfume but I still think it is a classic I will return to - if only to relive memories of a younger self. I would definitely recommend it if you have never used it before. It has such a strong and distinctive smell to it that it stands out amongst what I think are often quite bland, modern fragrances on the market now.
A fruity, floral scent with a kitsch edge that is definitely worth a go.
I was running right out of perfumes coming up for Christmas so I kept dropping hints and ended up getting 5 different ones. This Versace Red Jeans Woman was one of them.
One of the lovely things about this product was the pretty tin it came in. It is brightly coloured and I can use it after for keeping things in like shirt buttons. It makes a nice change to be able to recycle the packaging for perfumes etc as they usually come in elaborate boxes which are not really useful for anything else after.
The bottle you get is pretty too. It is a clear galss but it has an elaborate raised pattern on it. The bottle is a similar shape to an old fashioned Coke bottle but it has four nice lion heads sticking out, and a pretty border around the bottle.
The perfume inside the bottle is a pretty pink colour which goes really well with the bright red lid on the top.
The scent of this perfume is sharp and tangy, it is very feminine with a nice floral scent which is made up from a blend of jasmine, musk, sandalwood, lily and vanilla. I cant smell the vanilla in the scent at all but I can smell the flowers, not sure what jasmine or lily smells like but it is a very pretty scent.
The scent has quite a good staying power, I sprayed some on in the morning at about 8 am and you could still smell it faintly at 12 but it had gone by 2 in the afternoon. It did stay on my clothes though, I could smell it on a thin scarf I had been wearing that day even a few days later.
I think this perfume would suit all ages, it has a young smell to it and the tin and bottle shape would be nice for a teenage girl but I think an older person would like this too once they had tried it, I am 53 and think its a lovely smell.
You can currently buy the 75ml bottle of this eau de toilette for £15 on the Boots web site which I think is a great price for a little bottle of nice scent

A sweet,fruity fragrance this is one of my favourite perfumes ever since my Aunty bought me a mini bottle of Versace pink jeans for christmas when I was about 10. The smell is definitive but not overpowering and will definitely not be overlooked by whoever you are with. Not once have I worn this perfume without being complimented on it and asked what it is. The fact that it is under the Versace brand adds to the satisfaction when telling people about your fragrance, I don't know why but Versace just connotes elegance and an expensive lifestyle.
The ironic thing is you don't actually have to spend a lot to get your hands on this product at all! With many places selling a 75ml bottle for under £15 it's really a bargain as you don't have to put that much on so a bottle will last you a while.
In my personal opinion it is a perfect scent for summer and goes lovely with floaty summer dresses.
I seem to always have a bottle of Versace Red Jeans perfume, it is so flirty and fun. I think it's a perfect scent for young people and it's a smell that always cheers me up. The bottle and tin that the bottle comes in has a lovely little vintage look about it that reminds me of something you might of seen on a young girls dressing table in the 60's. In keeping with the flower power image, it too smells very flowery, but not so flowery that it makes it an old smell.
Considering how cheaply priced this perfume is, it really has fantastic staying power and lasts on me a really long time. I only need a few squirts and i can really smell it, that's always the main thing i look for in a perfume because it means it will last you longer!
It's a scent that when smelled by others always attracts nice comments, the price of this perfume is really fantastic - you can get a 75ml bottle for £12! This perfume is an absolute bargain and i'd reccomend it to anyone.
I bought this fragrance on sale in Boots for a mere £9.70 for 75ml.
I wanted to buy some perfume but wasn't convinced of anything I saw so I chose this because it was so cheap. It comes in a red tin which on one hand can seem a bit different and original - on the other hand it's not very classy or elegant and a bit odd.
First of all, in the shop I really liked the scent. The assistant sprayed it on a piece of paper and it was very nice. However when I use it on my skin - I can't stand the smell. It just rubs me up the wrong way when it's freshly sprayed. Once it gets settled on the skin though it get a bit better. The longer you have it on the nicer it smells but since it is only eau de toilette the staying power is poor.
The bottle is quite strange really. I wouldn't say I liked it but then again it's not horrible. The glass is clear with a plastic red cap which has a lion's head on top. Also I don't understand why it's called Red Jeans or what the design of the bottle or the scent has anything to do with the title.
The bottle is nothing special and neither is the scent. The aroma is maybe more suitable for more mature women and it seems very old fashioned. The scent is very specific and I think you will either love it or hate it. Personally I do not find it very exciting and use it just to use it up, not because I enjoy it but then I guess you get what you pay for.
Versace: Red Jeans, Eau De Toilette
I first experienced Versace Red Jeans when I was a lot younger, and it was then that I first realised that perfumes are something to be wanted (and needed) and are exciting when owned. I seen this perfume in my local Home And Bargain and it was 9.99, a fortune to a 10 year old and begged for it (I didn't get it until I was 13 and treasured it from then on!)
The bottle is a lovely distinctive and ornate shape, red decorated with lions on it and comes in an antique looking tin full of decoration. I dont think that the design on the tin really does it justice, it isn't bold and it doesn't stand out enough in my opinion.
The smell of the perfume is distinctive and floral/fruity, not very strong but still distinctive as is the rest of the Versace brand it really is a pleasant fragrance and lasts for quite a while, not as long as is hoped, around 3 hours. In my opinion it would be better if the bottle was a spray bottle as opposed to the one I have which is a splash bottle, the perfume just doesn't spread as far as is hoped which I think is the key to it not lasting as long as maybe it could.
You can purchace this in most shops now as nearly every shop on the High Street has a perfume counter. In the lower priced shops like Wilkinsons, TK Maxx and TJ Hughes, you can usually expect to pay around 15.00 for a 75ml bottle, in my opinion very reasonable.
Would recommend this to people who like the lighter scents.
I have to say, this has been one of my favourites for a while now, and I have been using this perfume since I was quite young. It costs around £8 from my local T K Maxx, but I have seen it in most other shops for around £15, but still, this is a very reasonable price to pay.
The perfume comes in a tall cylinder, decorated in red and with lions on it, and the versace logo printed on the front. The actual bottle is designed in a very antique fashion, with lion heads on it, and the bottle is clear. The perfume is red, but clear when you wear it, which I think is quite cool.
The smell is quite unique, floral and sophisticated, but in its own way. I don't think I've ever really smelt another perfume like it. Th perfume lasts me about a year each time round, which is very impressive compare to some others I have had, where I've had to plaster it on to get the slightest hint of a smell.
I bought this ages ago, proberbly around start of 2007 maybe, it was a while back. The reason I bought it, to what I can remember was because it was quite cheap, around £9 or £12 for the 75ml bottle from TJ Hughes. At first I wasn't overly keen, as I'm use to very strong scents such as 'Calvin Klein - Euthporia' (which I would describe as quiet a dark sultry fragrance) so to have such a fresh light smell to this I wasn't use to it and didn't use it for a while.
I started to re-use this again as I was trying to use my old stuff up, and I had a few compliments about this when I wore it in work. To me I can't smell perfume once I've sprayed it, but a number of people have pointed out they like it and have asked what it is. I must admit it is a nice fruity smell, and it's a change to my usual stuff. The scent is very fresh and fruity, perfect for the daytime. I definitely wouldn't reach for this if I was going out in the evening; as well if I was planning on going anywere special in the daytime I would choose something different. For me this is a perfect day wear perfume; it's not too overpowering, but yet fresh enough to tell you have something more than a body spray on. Once again as with all my perfume reviews, I'm not the best at describing the scent, but to the best of my nose sniffing knowledge this is very fruity and fresh, but not in a flowery way, ironically in a slight woody way. It's quite an odd scent to describe, but the price is so reasonable it's best to grab a sample of this for yourselves. Staying on topic of the perfume for a minute though and staying power wise it's not brilliant; mainly due to it being a light scent. I haven't had the scent for a while since I finished the bottle but as it's so reasobly priced and for the quantity you receieve I think I may have to pick it up again.
The prices below are as current as of today 12/10/12
Boots £11.25 = 75ml
Superdrug £14.99 = 75ml
The packaging of this product is really nice, it comes in a pleasant tin as shown in the picture, which I like to keep out on display. The actual bottle, even though its 75ml isn't too big to keep in your bag I don't think; and its designed nice, kind of in a Russian or Egypt style of embossed detail. This particularly version has a red theme to it, there are other within the collection such as a baby pink and blue variation also.
Initially I picked this up as it was a very large bottle, for a great price and I bought into the brand. I saw it was by Versace and so thought it is a posh name. It's great value for money, not only that it smells nice, but for the amount of product you are getting for your money as well. I will buy it again, as it's generally a 'nice' perfume to have, to be able to throw it on and know it's fresh and fruity for your day ahead.
Now this is probably the cheapest perfume I have ever bought and to be honest when I first purchased it YEARS ago now wasn't expecting great thing's from it, I thought because it was so cheap it wouldnt smell great and wouldnt last very long, I bought it as a sort of stand in for my more expensive perfumes. But after smelling it, it has become a scent that I wear all the time and I'm never without a bottle of this in my bag! After just looking through a few reviews on this perfume everyone seems to hate it which I cannot understand because everyone I know absolutely loves it maybe we are all cheapskates who don't know anything about perfumes!!
The Packaging & The Bottle:
This perfume comes in a sort of red tin can which is circular in shape. It looks pretty great a bright red colour with the usual "Versace Jeans" picture on the front which you can see in the image attached to this review. I usually use this can as a little money box after Ive finished with the perfume just because it's pretty and nice to display.
The bottle itself is the same red colour only a tiny bit lighter but the red colour doesnt transfer to your clothes because as far as I can tell the perfume is clear. The bottle shape isn't anything special and is made of glass whereas the top is a brighter red and made of plastic, which makes it easy to pull off. At the top of this is the usual push down spray nozzle as with most perfume bottles, very easy to spray when it comes to applying it.
After looking around the Internet I found that some of the ingredients in this perfume include: Jasmine, Sandalwood, Vanilla & Lilly. But I think this perfume smells a mixture of flowers and fruit and the ingredients make it sound like some sort of essential oil. It's a very sweet perfume but not to over powering so that makes it perfect for both day and night wear. It is a very distinctive scent that is very unique so people will instantly recognise what scent your wearing. The smell tends to last me around 3-4 hours now that may not seem like a lot but I'm a smoker and perfumes often seem to fade really quickly on me so for me this perfume is actually quite long lasting.
Perfume snobs will not like this because they wont be able to look past the cheap price tag, em on the other hand who needs her scent to be on a budget this is the perfect perfume for me. Nice sweet smell that lasts for quite a while and best of all one bottle lasts for ages so a brilliant perfume if your on a budget.
I would recommend this perfume for young girls, teenagers and maybe even up to about 30, its a nice feminine scent that would be perfect for any woman this Christmas.

Versace Red Jeans, Eau de Toilette may not be the most popular perfume on the shelves, nevertheless it is still very popular and there will always be a market for it. The smell is very sweet and almost sharp however not at all fruity. In fact some times when I smell it I do identify the pungent yet interesting stench of cat piss, however with a second sniff it seems alright again. For a teenager it is a perfect gift to give to your peers on birthdays and Christmas. It is also the most likely named brand perfume that you can find at the ten pound mark. The world wide known Versace label definitely increases the appeal of this perfume. Its standard gift tin is a nice novelty and the bottle s very cute with lion shapes and a fancy lid. Despite my early reference to this fragrance smelling sharp like cat piss, I must admit that I often wear it as the fragrance is long lasting and I have often been complemented on smelling nice whilst wearing it. In my sixth form this perfume was very popular with my friends and even well known by the boys, who sniffed it out eagerly. With its low price, yet popular brand name, Versace Red Jeans is the perfect gift for a teenager.
Versace: Red Jeans, Eau de Toilette
I apologise in advance to Red Jeans Perfume lovers and advise you to stop reading now!
As I said in my Jean Paul Gaultier I was getting through my perfume collection and the good, the bad and the ugly. Well its time for a rotten apple I am afraid and a bad perfume which is Versace's Red Jeans Perfume! I have unfortunately ended up with this perfume twice now. The first by my dad many moons ago who bought 3 on offer in France for me and my two sisters when we were teenagesr. We used to get little treats when he went away with work but knew perfume was a bit extravagant and they must have been on offer. I managed to get rid of that bottle somehow and though phew a lucky escape (not sure what the other two did with theirs). But no...my sister again got me a bottle of this from the kids for a birthday present this time and another set of PJs. Unlike the Benetton perfume the nozzle on this one has not got jammed into the lid to make it unusable. I have found a good little spot for this perfume in the bathroom with another bottle of perfume I have yet to review! Both sit there in pride where one may think they are in a good place to use but secretly they are there to be used as loo fresheners!
**The Versace Clan**
Versace is an Italian Fashion brand and created by Giovanni Versace and following his murder the chain was carried on by his heavily made up and bleached Sister Donatella. Versace is known as a luxurious brand and Gianni opened his first boutique in 1978. He has been making perfumes for over 20 years. I have owned a few of the Versace perfumes and they are quite mixed in quality and appeal and sell for various prices. I adore my bright crystal perfume which I use a lot as a daywear perfume and also Versace Women. However unfortunately I really dislike the Red Jeans perfume.
**In the Genes!**
Well Donatella wasn't to blame for the Red Jeans perfume as it was created in 1994 by the house of Giovanni Versace and he was around until 1997. Red Jeans is not a one off perfume either as there are several Jeans perfumes in this family! They include baby rose jeans, metal jeans, white jeans, yellow jeans and more jeans in the men's fragrances. How many perfumes can one make about jeans you ask!!
**Bottled up and Versace's Spin**
The bottle comes in a little cylinder red tin and the design and packaging of the tin is a little too fussy for me but the tin is actually quite a handy size. In fact I have reused the tin to collect my spare pennies! The bottle unsurprisingly is red and has Versace red jeans in gold writing on the bottle. The logo for this is a little old fashioned and reminds me of writing for the fair ground. It then has the Versace face on the mid part of the bottle 4 times. The Versace face is moulded outwards and the bottle is quite heavy and bulky. The bottle is no more than 6 inches tall and has a red top (which is not lost!!) which is thick and again has the Versace face on it. The top is silver and has a small nozzle to release the perfume.
Versace say Red Jeans is a sharp and flowery fragrance and the ingredients include jasmine, vanilla, musk, sandalwood and lily... Seeing as I like my floral fragrances and it sounds like it has some nice ingredients in it you would think I would like this. Also it has sandalwood in it and that is blimmin expensive as I have mentioned before when Yasmina and Ben made that silly, silly mistake in the Apprentice. It is also recommended for casual wear use.
Well looking at the ingredients and knowing this is Versace you would expect this to smell nice and be a delightful and splendid perfume. As a floral perfume it is too sweet and over powering. It smells too mixed up and cheap if I am honest and is far too heavy for a ''casual perfume''. It doesn't smell like a perfume to me and even after spraying it I find the aroma still heavy and unpleasant and a little sickly. In fact seeing as I have my second bottle of this inflicted on me it went straight to the bathroom shelf and is there to use as a toilet freshener but the bottle is still pretty full up!
Not on your Nelly I say Versace what were you thinking with the whole jeans perfume collections. The packaging is too fussy and cheap. The perfume bottles are frumpy and do not entice the wearer to wanting to put it on when that is a major selling point of a good classy perfume. The biggest problem is the scent and this is just awful and I have sprayed a little again for the review and feel a little queasy now. I would say avoid, avoid, avoid! If you get one of these politely demand the receipt or try to sell it on quick or give it away!
The annoying thing about this perfume is that it is made by a famous leading design fashion brand. If this was a cheap perfume on sale then I can understand but this is Versace and the quality of it is terrible and a big let down for a designer brand! I sure hope they have discontinued it and will be pleased when all shops cease to sell it then I may not end up with a third bottle as surely I couldn't be unlucky 3 times in a row!
**Spend some Pennies**
If I have not put you off then you can purchase it from as little as £10.58 on fragrance x online for 75ml. I consider £10.58 expensive for an air freshener though. Instead I recommend the classier Jean Paul Gaultier which is 4 times the price for 50mls at nearer £40!
**Again apologies if I have been brutal and you like this perfume as the thing with perfume is it is a tricky thing to buy for others and we all have different tastes!**
