Giorgio Armani Si Intense
Giorgio Armani fragrances hosted a sundowner at Palladium Hotel's rooftop lounge, Asilo to launch their new fragrance Giorgio Armani Si Intense.
I have to start by mentioning that while I have visited the lounge at night many times before, heading up around 5 p.m. in the evening makes for a spectacular setting specially in this amazing weather. Add to that flowing sangrias, a mix of vibrant personalities, as well as amazing scents and you are sure to have good time.
As always, I prefer to use any product for at least a week before I review it. I got the Giorgio Armani Si Intense on the 10th of December, 2014 and have been enjoying wearing it ever since.
Armani as a brand is known for sleek modern and clean design, which is reflected in the sophisticated packaging. The outer box is simple and classic in a pale peachy pink. The perfume bottle is a contrasting black with a rounded cap.
Given the name and the dark bottle I was expecting a very strong scent. However, Giorgio Armani Si Intense is strong but not overpowering.
I usually just like a fragrance or I don't. I am not very good with picking out the notes etc. I can tell you though that this scent is mature and complex with different notes. The captivating fragrance is a blend of vanilla beans, black woods, amber resins, zesty bergamot, mandarin essences and freesia.
I have a feeling this is going to be my "go to" perfume for a night out. The scent itself lends to an evening soiree. I have worn it out several times and like that it lasts long because I can still smell it on me after getting back home.
I would recommend trying it on your skin as it smells a bit different than when tested on paper.
The Giorgio Armani Si fragrance for women was launches in 2013 and I haven't tried the original so can't make a fair comparison.
Given that Christmas is just around the corner, there perfume is sure to make great gift for a confident and risk-taking woman.
