I fell in love with the packaging first of all. It was dark Winter day and the box is a gorgeous vivid citrus colour with a gold Hermes type design. The bottle is very pretty and dumpy with an acrylic diamond cut stopper. I like Versace perfumes, I have Blonde and I buy L'Homme for my man.
The perfume is not at all citrusy except way back in the mix, which is good because I do not like fruit salady or grapefruit scents. It smells of mimosa, freesia, musk and bergamot with amber and pear. There is a woodsy greeness to it which is like oak moss.
It is characterised as floral and fruity, but the fruity pear and neroli peters out and you are left with a bright floral smell, not unlike Elizabeth Arden's 5th Avenue, but more subtle.
When to wear it
This is a great everyday perfume. I wear it for work. It is a Springlike, dainty, young fresh smell. It says it lasts for 7 hours, but the EDT is more like 3-4. It is nice for a daytime rendezvous, a walk with your lover, or a coffee in the park. It is not sexy or bedroomy. It is chic and light.
This is a fairly new perfume and is in the range of Crystal Noir and Bright Crystal. The advertising campaign is set in Paris and photographed by the fashion photographer, Mario Testino. It is very glam, possibly more so than the perfume.
A lovely light perfume for every day. The glitzy box and bottle are a pleasure to look at. It is subtle and non-sickly.

Versace Yellow Diamond Eau De Toilette. The fragrance unveils like a burst of light, gleaming and glistening. The crystalline luminosity of citron from Diamante the generous freshness of a pear sorbet fused amonghst sparkling notes of bergamot and dynamic accents of neroli. The rare elegance of orange blossom shines through the light of freesia and mimosa and the natural transparecy of nymphea. The sensuality of ambery woods, the sunny and vibrant character of palo santo woods, the refined presence of musk.
