Don’t feel blue

To give your senses a boost and banish the Monday gloom, try a couple of spritzes of VersaceDylan Blue, which is available as an Eau de Toilette or Eau De Parfum.

The men’s fragrance is a fougere fragrance that has a highly distinctive, woody aroma. This is a result of precious natural ingredients being blended with the latest generation of molecules; a new quality musk, with mineral accents sets off the intense and seductive character of this fragrance. The fragrance starts out with the incisive Mediterranean freshness of bergamot, fig leaves and grapefruit that is deepened and rounded off by aquatic notes. The virile heart of violet, black pepper, ambrox, papyrus and patchouli is powerful and pulsating before tonka bean, saffron and incense provide a warm, sensual dry down.

Dylan Blue Pour Femme is a tribute to femininity, an alchemy of irresistible notes that dance, arouse and embrace. This strong, sensuous yet refined fragrance for women who know their own power comes in a bottle whose elegant curves bring to mind an amphora from ancient Greece.

The colour of the bottle is as intense as the deep and mysterious Mediterranean Sea, whilst the gold details and the iconic Medusa, a bridge between the past and present, serve to embellish the precious content. Refreshing blackcurrant sorbet and Granny Smith apple create an unusual fruity accord at the top that combines with clover, forget-me-not and shisolia to produce a unique opening. The heart is a contemporary floral bouquet of Eglantine rose, petalia, rosyfolia and jasmine that blends with an icy infusion of peach before giving way to a warm, woody dry-down of styrax, white woods, musk and patchouli that rounds out this captivating and sensuous Floral/Fruity/Woody scent.

The Technology: it includes Palmitoyl Tripeptide-38 that smooths wrinkles from within, stimulating collagen where it’s needed most; Spanish Needle (Bidens Pilosa) extract, a retinol-like botanical, that improves radiance, texture and restores firmness in mature skin; Plantain (Plantago Lanceolata) stem cells, designed to fade the effects of skin ageing, and Hyaluronic acid, that offers highly effective long-lasting moisturisation as well as Niacinamide – Vitamin B3 to help brighten skin.

Created for mature skin, this will nourish, protect and help reduce the appearance of more advanced lines and wrinkles.

An overnight treatment allowing skin to focus on repair, this is dermatologically tested and improves the complexion and helps fade areas of hyperpigmentation.
