Advantages: Lovely Scent, Great practical bottle design
Disadvantages: You cannot see the contents of the bottle
One of my penchants in life is fine fragrances and over the years I have purchased so many, from sweet and girlie to deep and sensual I have tried so many different brands but I have a particular few favourites that I would call my old faithfuls, fragrances that I always go back to and find myself purchasing over and over again. Emporio Armani She is one of these fragrances. Armani She was launched by the design house Giorgio Armani back in 1998 and has got to be one of my favourite fragrances as I always have a bottle on the go or in my handbag. Its described as as a vibrant signature scent where flowers and spices melt together into a gentle, radiant fragrance. A truly classic and classy fragrance for a woman.
Before I start I must say that the packaging for the fragrance really does leave a lot to be desired, compared to a lot of fragrances out there on the market, its gold metalic foil like wrapping is not particularly striking so it doesnt really stand out amongst other fragrances on the shelves when your out shopping. There are no funky colours or added neon lights or over the top boxes but once you look beyond the foil packaging and simple box of this product you discover its true appeal.
Once inside the wrapping you will find that the fragrance itslef comes in a metallic, gold, metal cylinderal bottle. The bottle design itself is a great idea as it strays away from the usual glass designs that every other perfume on the market out there uses. The metal design makes the bottle so much more practacle and so much more durable and robust than what a glass bottle is as well as it looking modern and stylish at the same time.
As well as being great to carry around in your handbag as you dont have to worry about accidental breakage or spillage you can also drop this bottle on the floor and you dont have to worry about it smashing.
The bottle design is not perfect, it does have its flaws, one I've found is that the metal can get very scratched up, especially when its in the bottom of my handbag being bashed about, the bottle does get really scratched up, especially by my keys.. but at the end of the day its whats inside the bottle thats important not the outside, that's just a added bonus.
Now as practicle as this bottle design is I will say one thing against the design, Being metal it means that you cannot see the fragrance inside so are unable to see how much of the product is left inside, it means that you are left to guess how much of the fragrance you have left and it really is annoying when you think you have more and infact its your last couple of sprays, it can be really frustrating.
To apply the fragrance is simple, the bottle uses a rubber spray mechanism to the top of the bottle which when pushed provides a nice even mist. When you initially spray the scent does appear quite strong to the nose but this does gradually tone down.
The fragrance itslef is a subtle oriental, floral, musky fragrance which combines together citrus Top notes of Pineapple, Bergamot, Pear and Tangerine.
Floral Middle notes of Muguet, Orris, Jasmine and Heliotrope
and Warm base notes of Tonka, Sandalwood, Vanilla, Cedarwood and Musk. Now the base notes of a fragrance are the strongest notes which are the most distinguised and will last the longest on the skin. So combined together all of these notes really do create a warm, deep sensual scent which will provides a lasting impression. I would describe it as a floriental scent. One of sensuality, Femininty, a real sexy seductive scent, a classy fragrance which I would say is perfect for evening wear or intimate time, although I personally love to wear it on any ocassion as the base notes really do mean it has staying power and help it to last throughout the day, I hardly find myself having to re apply, two to three sprays in the morning and its still noticeable in the evening, those strong deep, musky base notes really do last.
Now Personally I would advise anyone who has never tried this fragrancebefore to test it first and not on one of those tester cards but actually on your skin. Everyone has a different body chemistry and the oils which your skins produce can make a fragrance on one individual smell really divine but on the other person really horrible.
You will also find that this factor will also affect the staying power of the scent too, on one individual it may last twelve hours but on another only two, so its really worth giving the tester a go to see how the fragrance works with you personally.
Now even though this fragrance has been around for twelve years now it is still in production and has not been discontinued like many to hit the shelves have over the years so it means that Armani must be doing something right. You can find Armani She available in most large department stores such as Boots, Debenhams, House of frasier or John Lewis.
A 30ml bottle retails at £29.00p
A 50ml bottle retails at 39.50p and a 100ml bottle retails at £51.50p
Although I would advise that you look around to see if you can find different promotional offers on the fragrance as you can often pick it up a lot cheaper
