VERSACE DYLAN BLUE POUR FEMME


As I mentioned in one of the previous posts, I’m a great fan of history and while French history, especially age of Louis XIV, enthrals me because of sumptuous lifestyle, wardrobe, jewelry, refined interiors and external arrangement of castles, the Egyptian because of the pyramids, Greek and Roman amazes me for the legacy in the fields of mathematics, physics, astronomy, philosophy, architecture and mythology. By studying the history of fashion houses I realized that Gianni Versace, whilst devising the house that is synonym with antiquity, was also fascinated and encouraged by Greek mythology. This is evidenced in the latest perfume whose bottle resembles an old Grecian amphora – Versace Dylan Blue Pour Femme.


To Gianni Versace, born in Reggio di Calabria, a city in southern Italy full of influences of Greek culture and tradition, mythology was an inexhaustible fountain of inspiration, so it’s no surprise that he chose Medusa for the official logo. According to a number of sources, Medusa was beautiful, bragging girl with golden hair who with her two sisters served as a priestess in the temple of Athena. There are several versions of story about her destiny. One relates that she had an intercourse with Poseidon in the temple, so enraged Athena, along with the sisters, turned her into hideous Gorgon whose glance petrified the beholder, while the other explains that Athena, jealous of Medusa’s beauty and impact she had on men, out of envy transform her golden locks in nest of serpents, by which she is known as one of most recognizable figures of Greek mythology.

Many wonder why Versace, regarding all of the above, chose Medusa for his trademark. The reason is simple: famous fashion designer wasn’t inspired by Medusa the monster, but by Medusa the maiden, who symbolizes power, strength and beauty, an imposing impersonation of ubiquitous woman who raises and arouses jealousy with her provoking impertinence, who embodies a fatal passion and lure people to fall hopelessly in love with her. As he said himself, “whoever falls in love with Medusa can’t flee from her”. All of it is visible in the logo that, instead of venomous snakes, depicts her with gracefully flowing hair, and Versace hoped that his company would achieve the same effect.

Versace’s idea is still being accomplished nowadays – a similar situation occurred when I was browsing perfumes and saw Dylan Blue, so remarkable that it was impossible not to notice it or detach the eyes from it. In the bulk of perfumes with more or less standard rectangular or round bottles, this one is distinguished with the shape of amphora, while the packaging is made of solid cardboard, and when the upper part is lifted a golden "throne" on which the bottle rests remains. Greek amphora was used to store and transport wine, oil, honey, fish, cereals etc., and this particular one preserves another precious product – perfume. The glass is in the color of sapphire, the upper section and the cap is golden and on top of coverlid and on front side there is a logo – the head of Medusa which fits perfectly in this combination. Bottle of Versace Dylan Blue is a singular expression and melange of luxurious, innovative design and elegance of ancient times, so wonderful that I can freely label it a small masterpiece.

Same epithets could be employed for the fragrance within. The refreshing sorbet of blackcurrant and apple compose an unexpected fruity consonance, while the bouquet of imaginary wild bloom prolongs the unforgettable sillage. Basic woody notes with their playfulness are mixing the elixir of patchouli in subtle blend with styrax and white woods polished by pure water, altogether generating ravishing, sensuous vibrations of aroma. Speaking from experience, I would remark that perfume at first seems sharp, dominant and seductive, graphically said like Medusa’s hypnotic eyes, but after a few seconds fruity and woody tones gradually mitigates the initial impression. Model Farreta, face of the campaign, stated: “This fragrance is created as a tribute to strong, independent women who are aware of their own power. Dylan’s floral-fruity and woody composition is conceived to emphasize uniqueness, strength, sensuality and elegance in those who dare to wear it.”

I’m inclined to agree with her entirely, because this perfume is absolutely different from others in my collection. It’s powerful and intense, almost like a man’s perfume in woman’s bottle, the charismatic Dylan Blue for men which was placed on the market somewhat earlier. However, when the scent absorbs and releases, thanks to fruity and floral notes it becomes sensual and sweet, but not too sweet, while the woody tinges provide a fine, light dose of bitterness, pervading in the alchemy of engaging and embracing gavotte. The perfume is steadfast for hours, sometimes I can feel it after showering and, even though is dissimilar from those that I use more regularly, I love it equally!

Versace Dylan Blue Pour Femme is commonly narrated by words such as sensuality, power, elegance and uniqueness, of which I would outline the latter notion. At times I get the sense that in today’s world, affected by trends, people begin to look alike and lose themselves, and maybe the hardest task is to be true to yourself, to be diverse from the multitude, to be unique. I believe that every person is unique, as Walt Disney said: “The more you like yourself, the less you are like anyone else, which makes you unique.” Love for yourself is the key to uniqueness, and the proof that it’s always worth it is Gianni Versace, the founder of globally renowned brand, distinctive and perceptible by alluring clothing, accessories, fragrances and the logo of Medusa that, without extensive introduction, clearly speaks for itself.

All the best till the next post!
