A signature scent, much like one’s morning coffee order or daily uniform, should make you feel like the best version of yourself. It should brighten your mood every time you spritz it on — and inspire you to take on the world with confidence. After all, fragrance is about far more than just smelling good; it’s meant to evoke core memories and emotions. And to instill an innate sense of empowerment in the wearer, even on days when it feels out of reach.

Versace’s new pour femme Dylan Purple fragrance does exactly that, and then some. The bold, addictive eau de parfum acts as a portal to an endless summer, one with exquisite sunsets, balmy breezes, and warm golden sand between your toes. Here, a closer look at what makes Versace’s latest fragrance so special — and why it’s bound to become your new year-round signature scent.

It Smells Sublime

Bright and playful, yet sophisticated and elegant at the same time, Dylan Purple is truly one of a kind. It opens with a fresh, uplifting blend of bergamot, freshly harvested bitter orange, and juicy pear, before settling into a floral heart of purple freesia (which gives it its vivid amethyst hue), pomarose, and mahonial. It’s then grounded with base notes of belambre, ambrofix, iso e super, creamy cedarwood, and sylkolide — a distinct combination that delivers a divine musky scent with slight fruity accents.

The finished product is a fragrance that anyone and everyone will gravitate to. Floral, fruity, and musky all at once, it’s an extremely versatile scent with the ability to appeal to a vast range of noses. Whether you’re embarking on an Italian voyage or simply hitting the office for another day of work, Dylan Purple has the unique power to enhance the everyday, no matter where you are.

It Inspires Wanderlust

One sniff of this bright, dazzling fragrance will make you want to book your next getaway, and that’s exactly what perfumer Christophe Raynaud hoped for when formulating it. “I created [Dylan Purple] as an invitation to travel,” explains the renowned fragrance formulator. He specifically wanted the fresh and fruity opening to remind wearers of the iconic citrus from Italy; the floral heart to represent hypnotic sunsets by the water; and the musky base to be reminiscent of warm, reassuring sand beneath your feet. It’s safe to say he hit the nail on the head — regardless of what time of year you wear Dylan Purple, it’s sure to ignite the wanderlust inside of you.

It’s Thoughtfully Formulated

Not all fragrances are created equally — and not all brands go out of their way to formulate with the planet in mind. But Versace does. Dylan Purple includes upcycled ingredients (bitter orange and iso e super, to be specific) and is 67.3% biodegradable. Additionally, it’s a fully vegan formula. This makes it an excellent fragrance for anyone who’s trying to be more intentional about their beauty routines and the products they buy. With Dylan Purple, you can trust you’re wearing a perfume that was made with sustainability at the forefront every step of the way.
