Versace Blonde by Versace: LIVE Video Sniff

Hello gang,

Blonde by Versace: LIVE Video Sniff

Blonde Versace fragranticaPhoto Stolen Fragrantica

Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Top: Gardenia, Pitosporum flowers,y violet, orange blossom, bergamot
Heart: Tuberose, daffodil, ylang-ylang, carnation
Base: Benzoin, sensual musk, civet, sandalwood

This 1995 Nathalie Feisthauer fragrance for Versace is one of my all time favourites,as you’ll hear it was designed by Gianni Versace for his sister, what a FABULOUS gift and the bottle is gorgeous too.

I have a couple of EdT bottles and some Parfum too. As fun and bright today on me as the first time I spritzed. I hope you enjoy a rather contemplative LIVE Video Sniff compared to the others. As usual I am taken by the moment and much of what I say is rubbish, but my love for Blonde is absolutely genuine. Great fragrance that has so many wonderful memories for me, every time.

Thanks to my BFF Kath for shooting and editing, thanks to TSO Jin for getting it blog ready. I am blessed in my great friends and lover.

Please enjoy the silliness,
Portia xx

    I love Blonde, too bad it is discontinued!

    I think it is better than Fracas, in my personal opinion, because it has a stronger Gardenia and it last longer. Love the video and love you Portia! Your review has all the elements, your funny and you describe the scent exactly how it is :Bombastic Tuberose. I don’t know if you are talking about the EDT or the pure perfume. Blonde is an EDT but it last and last and last for ageeeeeeeeeees, and when I mean for ages, I am not exaggerating. It is so strong and long lasting!

    Wish you all the best! XOXO

      Hi there MihaelaU,
      I am wearing the EdT in this review but I also have a few bottles of the parfum. So sad it was discontinued too and it’s getting VERY expensive to buy the EdT, yes it lasts for ages, even on my skin and I love it more than Fracas too.
      I am so grateful for you reading and commenting , I am glad you are enjoying being part of the APJ family.

      • Mihaela U says:

        Yes indeed, it is getting very expensive and hard to find. It is so sad to see this Jewel slowly disappear, but on the other hand there will always be Fracas to replace it when it will be gone for good. I try to console myself with this thought even if I will never forget Blonde. You definitely inspired me with this awesome video to write a Blonde review! ^_^

        Thank you very much! I feel lucky and blessed to be part of the APJ family!

        Love and Big Hugs! Wish you all the best! XOXO!

    Portia, I bought a tiny bottle of the extract in the spring. As it was sealed in the original box, I was considering selling it. HOWEVER, I am breaking her out and wearing it today! After listening to your review, there is no way I am selling this one. (especially with those notes!!) Thank you for this review.

    THANK U for reminding yt to grab the parfum bottle when the turns over!! 🙂

  5. Mary K says:

    Good review and it looks like you had a lot of fun with it, too! I have worn Blonde in the past, and thinking about all of those white flowers, I know I need to find this again.

    • australianperfumejunkies says:

      Hey Mary K,
      You can still find it around on Ebay and some Amazon and Discounter sites have the Parfum very inexpensively.

    Hi Portia, just love Blonde, and love your video too. It expresses the same feelings I have in such an artistic and fulsome way. It totally makes me reconnect with a parfum that I have neglected for too long. Will try tonight 🙂 I could never take to Fracas myself, but Blonde feels like the real deal unlike the plasticky Fracas. My other tuberose faves are Caron’s in edp and a new one I have discovered is Histoire de Parfums Tubeureuse #1, admittedly they are not as intense, but have captured the freshness of this flower so beautifully. Thanks for your wonderful videos Portia.

    • australianperfumejunkies says:

      Hey there Donelle,
      Nice to see you and glad to know another tuberose fan. I really like the HdP Tuberose 1,2,& 3. Very nice.

    Hello Portia!

    I’m so glad you reviewed one of my all time favorite white flower fragrances. What a great video sniff. Thank you Kath and Jin!

    I just love, love, love Versace Blonde. I agree 100% with everything you say, Portia! I have made sure I will never run out of VB and have two 100 ml bottles of EDT and four 15 ml bottle of the perfume extrait. That amount should last through the perfume apocalypse. Just now dabbed on some extrait and it is YUMMY (and the bottles are gorgeous too).

    • australianperfumejunkies says:

      OMG! We are scent twins!! I have a little bit less than you because I’m nearing the halfway mark of a 50ml and have a 100ml, there’s also a cologne here somewhere too. PLENTY of parfum though

    I LOVE this video approach. We are totally swept along with it.

    Love Blonde as well. I mean it can get a bit sickly, but they just don’t make them like that anymore.

    • australianperfumejunkies says:

      Neil Chapman,
      Thank you. Ha Ha Ha one spray too many and yes, Blonde can turn NASTY. Ha ha ha. No they do not.
      Thanks for dropping by,
      Portia x

  9. […] 2013 I did a LIVE Video Sniff with Blonde, it kinda captures the feeling of the fragrance better than mere words on screen can. Please be […]
