Versace Dylan Blue | Honest Fragrance Review

Another Swiss Army Knife Blue Fragrance – Versace Dylan Blue Fragrance Review

In this article, I’ll be providing a review on Versace Dylan Blue a fragrance by the house of Versace as evident by the name.

Versace Dylan Blue is a clean, sinus-opening shower gel perfume that is bright and invigorating. A sweet, slightly watery, ambroxan bomb with a hint of delicious citrus, spice, and incense. Dylan Blue is stronger on the musk than other “blue” scents, and it has a musty undertone that makes me rank it lower than its rivals, but aside from that, it’s a great smelling cologne.

I appreciate the citrus notes, the depth of incense, patchoulis earthiness, and the intriguing musk/tonka combination, all of which are in harmony with each-other. I enjoy the entire vibe of Dylan Blue, and I think it portrays the Versace (Pour Homme) character perfectly: Mediterranean, citrusy, sensual, sweet, white musky base.

Dylan Blue, in my opinion, is a perfume that draws inspiration from Bleu de Chanel, Dior Sauvage, and Acqua di Gio Profumo while being unique. Dylan Blue has a typical men’s scent character, which I’m sure is due to the violet leaf. It’s like a new take on a men’s scent for the younger generation. Dylan Blue manages to provide an unusual variation to the standard Ambroxan smell provided by other blue fragrances such as Sauvage. Add in the incense, and green acidic notes, and you get a cohesive grounded experience.


Versace introduced Dylan Blue, a blue fragrance from the Versace Pour Homme line, which comprises of the original Pour Homme from 2008, and the Oud Noir version from 2013, in late July 2016.

Dylan Blues aromatic, woody – fougere composition begins with fresh aquatic notes, Calabrian bergamot, grapefruit, and fig leaves at the top, and progresses to a heart of violet leaf, papyrus wood, organic patchouli, black pepper, and ambrox with a heart of violet leaf, papyrus wood, organic patchouli, black pepper, and ambrox. Mineral musks, tonka bean, incense, and saffron round out the fragrance, giving it a fougere feel.

Versace Pour Homme Dylan Blue is a men’s scent that is classified as an Aromatic Fougere. Dylan Blue was introduced by Versace Pour Homme in 2016. Alberto Morillas is the perfumer behind this scent. Calabrian bergamot, Water Notes, Grapefruit, and Fig Leaf are on the top notes; Ambroxan, Black Pepper, Patchouli, Violet Leaf, and Papyrus are on the middle notes; and Incense, Musk, Tonka Bean, and Saffron are on the bottom notes.


Dylan Blue is a shower gel scent in the best sense of the word. It does, however, have a masculine vibe that makes it a great perfume to use when you want to feel groomed. Versace Dylan Blue is an all-season, all-occasion fragrance. It’s light and airy, but it also has some sweetness and depth, making it suited for cold weather, which isn’t the case with most “blue” scents.

Versace Dylan Blue begins with a delightful freshness that is ideal for a hot day in Italy. The top note, which contains Calabrian bergamot, grapefruit, fig leaf, and aquatic notes, are responsible for this.

Violet leaf, black pepper, papyrus wood, ambrox, and patchouli make up the base. These elements give it a richness that I don’t get from Dior Sauvage. It lends the scent a manly vibe.

The base of musk, tonka bean, saffron, and incense unifies the fragrance and provides a sturdy foundation. When the top notes have gone away, these notes shine through, and help complete a home run for this fragrance.

Dylan Blue is a wonderful blue fragarnce. The citrus notes, the musky-ambery ambroxan, the patchouli, and the musk, in fact, all of the notes are of excellent quality and are expertly combined. Some of them may appear synthetic, but ambroxan, as well as aquatic and mineral notes, do not have a turnaround.
