Versace "Time to Relax"
What I got for my troubles was a very good floral woody that's suited for the female persuasion much more than for men. There are times I still wear it because it actually is relaxing, but my recommendation is that this is a feminine fragrance and a very pleasant one to boot.
Time to Relax opens with a borderline strawberry and balsam with what I perceive as green apple. There is a listed avacado note and this may or may not be the reason for the green apple vibe I get, but it's of no great consequence. The accord is transparent and lends the composition a softness which is in keeping with the theme itself. Don't misconstrue "transparent" as a lack of presence. Time to Relax is an EDT and has more substance than that.
There is soft woods here as well, lurking underneath and always remaining polite. The wood defers to the florals and acts as a complimentary accord. This is a terrific summer or around-the-house fragrance that gets no props whatsoever. It's "Time that Changed".
