Versace Man Eau Fraiche is a popular & cheap aquatic cologne for men. Versace have done a great job creating such a uniquely masculine and fresh scent. For the next 2 minutes I’ll give you my opinion on whether it’s worth picking up this year.
The main notes I can smell in this fragrance are lemon, bergamot, starfruit, cedar, sage, woods, and musk.
How Does Man Eau Fraiche Smell?
The first accords present when sprayed on skin include the lemon and bergamot. They combine to create an energetic and uplifting blend that smells summery and very refreshing. I also pick up a juicy and delicious starfruit accord that adds another bright element to the scent.
Once Man Eau Fraiche dries on skin, it undeniably changes. The cedar and woody accords come to the forefront, accompanied by a subtle addition of musk. These accords provide a mature edge and more depth to the cologne.
Furthermore, the sage contributes to the blend of notes with a herbal edge that is unique and inoffensive.
This scent has one of my favourite dry downs ever. How Versace have managed to keep the aquatic vibes whilst adding in an aromatic woody base is beyond me. I talk more about how much I love the dry down in my Top 5 Versace colognes article.
The combination of notes in Versace Man Eau Fraiche evokes imagery of a masculine man laying around the beach on a warm summer’s day.
Longevity and Projection
Man Eau Fraiche is a light cologne. It projects off my skin for about an hour, and lasts for 3 hours total. Interestingly, I’ve found the performance gets better as the temperature gets hotter.
Occasions and Versatility
This is one of the best easy reach fragrances for warm weather. It’s fantastic for the gym, doing work around the house, or relaxing by the beach. However, this is versatile enough that you can wear it anytime you just want to smell fresh.
Have a look at this reviewer’s comments on this scent:
This scent should be in every man’s collection, its absolutely beautiful and ozonic, fresh and calming like the cool breeze of the ocean at late evening, with each lap of calm waves rolling in, the sun gets lower. This brings me instant calm and release from my anxiety or any worries, don’t worry about longevity and whatnot, just enjoy it especially in high heat!

Should You Buy Versace Man Eau Fraiche This Year?
Update: In my view, Versace Man Eau Fraiche continues to be one of the best hot weather fragrances for men on the market right now.
It has all the characteristics you want in a fresh scent. Additionally, the woods and musk give it a mature edge. For the extremely cheap price, it’s definitely worth a purchase.
