  • There is a very interesting Moroccan-rose-like opening note, coming on the heels of the top fruity note and it lingers around for a long time
  • I found out it is not actually rose at all, but wild strawberry
  • Pleasant and sweet, not cloying, perhaps a bit loud in a giggly way, and definitely superficial
  • I think it corresponds quite well to the aroma itself, except it's maybe a bit too glamorous looking for this amusing and happy, but hardly deep fragrance

      The Gianni Versace perfume division has a collection of perfumes called Versus “Time for …”, namely four fragrance lines: Time for Action, Time for Pleasure, Time for Energy and Time to Relax.

      I haven’t had the “time” to try out all of them (so many fragrances, so little time!), but I did have the opportunity to wear “Time for Pleasure”, which, according to the fragrance marketing copywriters, “prepares you for enjoyment and satisfaction”.

      First impression: very lilting, uplifting, merry in a


      fruity-floral way. The opening fruity note is rather well conceived, quite distinctive.

      There is a very interesting Moroccan-rose-like opening note, coming on the heels of the top fruity note and it lingers around for a long time. I found out it is not actually rose at all, but wild strawberry.

      As I investigated the composition, it turned out that the other top notes are apricot (this would be the initial fruity note, blending with the wild strawberry into an almost “rosey” ...


      • aroma), followed by blueberry (can’t smell it), nectarine and peach. The base notes are musk and vanilla. (I can smell a hint of vanilla, but the musk is very diluted, I don’t sense it at all.)

        The drydown is - unsurprisingly - almost identical to te opening impression: fruit, fruit, and some more fruit. Pleasant and sweet, not cloying, perhaps a bit “loud” in a giggly way, and definitely superficial.

        I find it very girly, not “womanly” at all.

        I could

        imagine myself using it to pep myself up when doing house chores on a dull day (although I would much prefer “Charlie” any day!) - but never to a date.

        I want to smell like a woman, not like a fruit lollipop.

        The fragrance comes in a very striking, vivid pink-violet tinted bottle, with golden lettering. I think it corresponds quite well to the aroma itself, except it’s maybe a bit too “glamorous” looking for this amusing and happy, but hardly “deep” fragrance.
