Red Jeans is one of the most famous perfumes by Versace, an Italian fashion brand that appeared back in 1994 and, in an elegant and charming way, combines all the features of perfumery of that time. It is an exciting and youthful blend of fruits and flowers, a daily version of nightclub perfumes, such as the cult Thierry Mugler Angel.

Of course, the fact that it is best suited as daily wear does not mean that it is less potent perfume. Red Jeans is one of the most potent, and at the same time, the most affordable fragrances on the market. But that doesn’t surprise me, as it was created in collaboration with two super talented men: Jean Pierre Bethouart, who created perfumes like Cacharel Nemo, Fendi Palazzo, and Givenchy Ange ou Demon and Gianni Versace, the king of fashion and the unofficial guarantor of the quality of every Versace perfume up to his premature death in 1997.

Versace taught us through Red Jeans perfume and others from the same collection: Blue Jeans, Baby Jeans, Yellow Jeans, that we should not judge perfumes based on price or appearance. The inconspicuous, simple bottle hides one of the highest quality, classically feminine, very sophisticated fragrances at a price that is several times lower than the usual price for perfumes. You can sometimes find it in drugstore chains at even cheaper prices – only 20 dollars for a 75ml bottle.

Red Jeans has elements of both modern and classic perfumes. The contemporary composition fashioned of fruity and soapy floral notes is done in such a way that many fragrances from the beginning of the twentieth century would envy it. Namely, what characterized perfumes in the past, and which, unfortunately, has been lost in the meantime, is that time reveals the charms and beauty of perfumes. People did not crave instant gratification at every step. They allowed people and things to show their beauty and value over time. Red Jeans, like the legendary Mitsouko, with each passing hour, becomes softer, more refined, and seductive. The fruity notes of currant and peach, which invigorate us like freshly squeezed juice at the opening, leave the leading role to roses, sandalwood, and musk, which create a soapy pure, and romantic blend that you feel on your neck like a morning kiss of a loved one. If you like fruity-floral perfumes, which are very popular today, be sure to try Red Jeans and discover one of the nameless greats whose value is known today only to passionate perfume lovers.
