~Armani Diamonds Body Lotion~
This is the complimenting body lotion to the Emporio Armani Diamonds perfume.
This body lotion offers the perfect base for the Armani Diamonds EDP/EDT to be sprayed over the top. The promise is that your skin will be left nourished, hydrated and fragranced. The Armani Diamonds fragrance includes notes of raspberry, lychee, freesia, rose, patchouli, vanilla and cedarwood.
The full size bottle of Armani Diamonds body lotion is a rather simple yet classic affair. A tall, cylindrical bottle made of white plastic holds the lotion. There is very little detailing on the bottle except the product name. The bottle is finished off with a shiny, silver lid.

I have a rather extensive collection of perfumed body lotions. I don't tend to buy them at full price as I normally receive them as part of gift sets or they are given to me by my Mum and sister as they don't tend to use the lotions that come with the perfume gift sets. This is one such body lotion that was given to me and is a 75ml, gift set tube. I personally favour a tube over a bottle (even if a bottle does look more attractive) for this type of product so this suits me perfectly well.
I favour wearing perfumed body lotions either with the complimenting perfume (to increase strength and longevity) but also as a light scent on my skin. Armani Diamonds body lotion is fit for both uses as it compliments the perfume perfectly and also smells lovely on my skin without adding any additional scent. It is a gorgeous body lotion to use and is worthy of the premium price tag in my opinion.
This body lotion has a pleasant consistency. It isn't runny but nor is it too thick. It is very easy to massage across my skin as it is creamy yet lightweight. A little blob goes a long way which makes it even more worth the money. Whilst massaging this lotion across my skin, it offers a cool and soothing experience. It absorbs into my skin quickly without leaving any tacky feeling behind. My skin is left beautifully soft and smooth after applying this body lotion. It isn't an intense body moisturiser as it doesn't eliminate the rough areas of my body but softens them for a good few hours.
This body lotion smells lovely and is just like the perfume but in a light concentration. It is quite strong at first but it soon settles and remains at a noticeable but not overpowering strength for a few hours before becoming more subtle. The initial scent my nose can pick up on is a sweet and bright blend of raspberry and lychee - very natural and fruity smelling. After a while, I start to notice the rose emerging but it doesn't overpower. It simply blends with the sweet and fruity notes to create an appealing and beautifully feminine scent. The scent starts to lose intensity after a few hours and the finishing scent is a more, subtle, close to skin aroma which is evident as being a warm, woody vanilla which smells gorgeous but could be a little stronger. It is much stronger when the perfume is worn over the top of the body lotion.
This body lotion is very gentle on my sensitive skin and I haven't experienced any reaction. I wear this one often as I love the way it smells on my skin. It smells expensive and is perfect for a light scent for warmer days. It is likely to appeal to most women in my opinion. £28.50 is expensive for a body lotion but this is well worth the high cost as it performs to a high standard and is definitely a premium product.
