One Creative Couple Sound Off On Why You Should Share Your Fragrance With Your Significant Other

Share your fragrance like you would a love note.

In partnership with Versace.

Picture this: glistening water, picturesque cliff faces and a warm, salty ocean breeze. Now add a luxurious wooden speed boat direct from the shores of Portofino carrying creative couple Violet Atkinson and Charles Alexander and you’ve got yourself an idyllic morning. With their Covid-19 romance now a long-distance relationship, the couple have had to find ways to help their bond transcend physical proximity. And while, yes, pictures do say a thousand words, scent says a million.

As one of the world’s most iconic fashion houses, Versace is renowned for perfectly embodying the confidence that makes us all lust after a European summer. You know the one we’re talking about—where glamorous couples walk hand-in-hand along the Amalfi Coast in opulent outfits and partake in romantic PDA that only they can pull off. It’s this sensuality that is synonymous with the Italian fashion brand and also the inspiration for the latest additions to their fragrance offering. Striving to create a feminine and a masculine fragrance that were both complementary and unique, Versace’s Dylan Blue Pour Femme and Dylan Blue Pour Homme were born.

“What is most seductive about Dylan Blue Pour Femme is the feminine notes of fresh blackcurrant, apple sorbet and wildflowers,” says Alexander who feels most drawn to his partner, Violet, when she is in her creative element. “I feel like I am constantly in the shadow of her epic coolness.” With Alexander both a successful digital influencer and actor and Atkinson a lawyer-turned-creative, the duo have always found scent to play a significant role in their relationship, with Atkinson often stealing her boyfriend’s scents when she wants to feel more confident.

“When I smell Dylan Blue Pour Homme on Charles, it smells like a sense of freedom and super young and fresh,” says Atkinson who adores the playful and youthful side of their love. “When I am holding his hand, I feel like I can do anything.” Wrist-on-wrist, the Dylan Blue fragrances perfectly intertwine to create a scent that parallels any great love affair: sensual, rich and playful.

Dylan Blue Pour Femme

The Notes: Opening with fresh notes of blackcurrant, apple sorbet and wild flowers, Dylan Blue Pour Femme is grounded in woody base notes of coeur of patchouli, styrax and white wood.

The Bottle: Inspired by an ampora, a jar that evokes Greek culture and mythology, the colour of the Dylan Blue Pour Femme fragrance is reminiscent of the deep, strong and mysterious reputation of the Mediterranean Sea. Embellished with the iconic Medusa, the bottle is Versace opulence at its finest.

The Price: $180

Dylan Blue Pour Homme

The Notes: Opening with notes of ambergris, bergamot and grapefruit, the Pour Homme iteration is bold and masculine. With cirtusy notes of black pepper, papyrus and incense matched with earthy notes of mineral musk, Tonka beans and saffron, the fragrance will transport you to the Mediterranean in no time.

The Bottle: With an angular shape designed to guard the fragrance and protect the notes, the Pour Homme bottle is also inspired by that same mysterious Mediterranean blue. Embellished with Versace’s iconic Medusa, the bottle is both modern and timeless.

The Price: $140
