Versace is a signature brand known for making some of the best men’s cologne on the market. Versace fragrances can be daring and bold, but also sophisticated enough for everyday wear.
While Versace is definitely more popular for the younger generation, it’s refined and mature enough for older men as well. Overall, Versace is known for creating versatile scents for every occasion.
Here’s the deal:

What’s the bottom line?
After hours spent researching, reading reviews, and testing a few colognes ourselves, we’ve compiled the most comprehensive list of the best Versace colognes currently available.
However, if Versace just isn’t for you, take a look at our list of the sexiest smelling colognes for men. We promise you will not be disappointed.
Versus by Versace has been a fan favorite since the 1990s. But, it will still let women know just how excellent you are - during the day, or after hours. This is a classic scent that has been popular for decades, and for good reason.
A lighter scent that tends to be better for daytime.
Smells like a lively citrus scent of spices, woods, amber and musk. The oriental yet woody notes that this cologne is associated with exude manliness and command power (which, of course, women find super sexy).
As we mentioned above, while manly and woody, this is definitely a lighter scent that is more appropriate for daytime wear (though it can transition to evening wear as well, it just isn't as bold as you may prefer if you're trying to make a lasting impression).
While you can get this on sale for a pretty good price (definitely snag it when it's on sale), it just isn't as versatile as some of the other colognes on our list.
Oud Noir by Versace is woody, smoky, and just down right masculine. If you’re looking to make an unforgettable impression, Oud Noir is definitely the way to go.
A bit on the heavy side, so not ideal if you’re looking for light, every day wear.
Not your typical Versace fragrance, Oud Noir features a spice blend of oud, leather, woods, spices, and Oriental essence.
Ideal for evenings and special occasions, but otherwise appropriate to be worn year round—though preferable in colder months.
At just over $60 for 3.4 ounces, this cologne isn’t necessarily the best value on our—especially since it is very season and occasion specific.
Dreamer by Versace is a curious, intellectual fragrance that radiates romance and intimacy. This cologne opens with a touch of sweet and finishes with warm woodiness.
Since this cologne is bit stronger than the typical Versace scent, it’s kind of a love/hate fragrance that may not be for everyone.
Opens with top notes of sage, mandarin, and lavender; weaves in mid-notes of rose, tobacco, and geranium; and finishes with tonka bean and cedar. An unique, yet polarizing, combination that conveys bold confidence and poise.
Strong and long-lasting, Dreamer is a fragrance best for casual wear and ideal for cooler, winter months.
At $72 for a 3.4-ounce bottle (that’s just over $21 per ounce…ouch), this cologne is not necessarily the best value on our list—especially considering it can really only be worn a few months out of the year. However, if you can snag this cologne on sale—currently over half off at just over $30—it is WELL worth the investment.
Blue Jeans by Versace is a casual cologne—classified as sharp, Oriental, and woody—that has been a best-selling fragrance for years.
The unique blend of musk and floral citrus creates a masculine, yet sensitive, scent that will add a touch of personality that’s perfect for everyday wear.
Slightly younger fragrance that some reviewers think smells a bit synthetic and cheap.
Blue Jeans is a unique cologne that begins with light top notes of bergamot, anise, basil, and lemon; features spicy mid-notes of rose, lavender, geranium, sage, jasmine, and lily; which is then balanced with warm, dry base notes of musk, sandalwood, iris, patchouli, tonka bean, amber, vanilla, and vetiver.
Great for daytime wear and appropriate for all seasons. Features above-average staying power and is perfect for any occasion.
At just over $20 for a 2.5-ounce bottle, this cologne is probably one the best value buys on our list—especially considering the fact it has fantastic staying power and can be worn year round.
As with all Versace fragrances, this one almost spells out virility. A perfect scent for any occasion, but definitely one of the manliest on our list.
None that we can think of!
Eros by Versace men's fragrance gives you a vibrant freshness with its top notes of mint leaves, green apple, and lemon zest. Rounded out by mid to low notes of tonka beans, amber, geranium, vanilla, cedarwood, vetyver, and oak moss.
A perfect scent for any occasion, but definitely one of the manliest on our list.
This price is for the 1.7 fluid ounce bottle, which, while not cheap, is a steal for a cologne with such great staying power. That being said, at this price, we would recommend buying more than one, because, trust us, you will not want to run out.
Light, citrus scent opens up beautifully in the heat, masculine fragrance, dynamic, beautiful opening smell, flexible fragrance suitable for all types of events.
This cologne is not known for its staying power.
This scent is built with tangy top notes of lemon, rose de mal, bergamot, and neroli, giving it a crisp freshness that opens up nicely in the heat of summer. Once you get into the middle notes, you’ll notice heavier smells of cedar, geranium, hyacinth, and clary sage. With the tonka bean, amber, and musk base notes, it’s a well-rounded scent that becomes more and more complex the longer it’s exposed to summer heat.
This is an all-day cologne, one you can wear anytime, anywhere. It’s particularly effective when you’ll be in hotter places—on the beach, at the pool, in the club, or hanging out at a sports bar. The heat will develop the scents very nicely, making it a far more enjoyable scent!
The price is slightly below average for a Versace cologne, which may be reflected in the fact that it doesn’t last as long as other Versace offerings.
Created in 2006, Versace Eau Fraiche is a clean, citrus scent that provides a fresh take on the original Versace fragrance.
Not a single one! Aside from the fact that this is a clean, citrusy scent, so if you’re in search of something a bit more musky this is likely not the cologne for you.
Fruity, yet woody, Versace Eau Fraiche features bright, aquatic top notes, of bergamot and lemon; mid-notes of sage, tarragon, and pepper; and woody base notes of amber and saffron.
Though it is more of a springtime or summer scent, its woody base notes allow you to wear this cologne all year round. Subtle enough for daytime wear or dramatic enough for a night on the town, this cologne is versatile and perfect for just about any occasion.
At just over $42 for over 3 ounces (just over $12 per ounce), this cologne is a STEAL! For such a versatile fragrance, we would highly recommend giving this cologne a try.
