 Giorgio Armani 'SI' perfume fragrance review

In Review…

I often post pictures of my perfumes on Instagram and ask the question ‘What’s your current favourite fragrance?’, time and time again people answer me with ‘Armani SI‘. Embarrassingly, SI has always been a perfume I have seen around, but never had a chance to actually try out for myself. I figured if my Instagram friends love it so much, I needed to investigate!

Giorgio Armani SI is what I think of as a Summer fragrance; it’s fresh, fruity floral and cheerful. I usually stay away from fruity-florals, as they can very easily feel a little too young and generic, but there’s something about SI which is really special. I love the blackcurrant at the top of the fragrance, which is dark and juicy, it mingles with the sweet and unexpected pear beautifully. As for the lime, it gives a hint of edge to the otherwise pretty mandarin. At the heart of the fragrance, you find the classic feminine florals of rose, jasmine and freesia, which is offset with playful mango and elegant neroli. The base of the fragrance is rich, deep and sensual with notes of woods, amber, vanilla and musk. Whilst Armani SI isn’t my usual taste (y’all know I love strong, dark, rich fragrances with notes of oud, leather, rose and amber!) it certainly is rather special. It’s a lush fruity-floral with a little added luxury and elegance. I definitely now understand why so many of you pick this out as your favourite fragrance! Thanks to everyone for introducing me to it, I’m going to enjoy wearing this one all summer long!

Giorgio Armani SI eau de toilette is available from Selfridges, Feelunique.com and John Lewis.
