“ Brand: Giorgio Armani / Type: Fragrance / Concentration: Eau de Toilette „
I'm running low on this fragrance and I don't think you can get it anymore!
a shame because I absolutely love this fragrance.
The packaging is really fun, a silver metallic packet and a rubberised bottle- very unique and totally different to the glass packaging you usually get.
The bottle is also really quite small for a 50ml, so travelling with it is no problem at all- also the design of the bottle means it's more difficult for the spray to be activated accidentally.
In terms of the scent, it's hard to describe, it's not particularly manly, it's fun! It smells like the packaging looks, quite glamorous and funky but with a slight hint of spice. it has a citrus edge to it, and it's slightly 'sparkly'- this is probably a terrible description but it's hard to describe because it's so unique- I really like it but other's might not, it's probably not a good idea to give it as a gift as whether you like the scent will definitely be down to personal taste.
I think it is an incredibly fun, slightly unusual scent that's great for nights out and times where you want to impress. I highly recommend it if you can find it
Originally launched back in 2005, Emporio Armani: City Glam for men is currently the EdT I use on a daily basis. I have found that it is subtle enough, yet still noticeable where needs be.
Packaged in a metal cylinder measures about 4 inches in height with a diameter of 1 inch. The top is a rubber coating under which resides the diffuser. The name of the EdT is emblazened in silver letters against a matte black background. I'm not a fan of fancy shapes in containers, they take up space, espescially when travelling abroad. I have noticed that the really classy fragrances both mens and womens, seem to prefer a simple square bottle. It's what is inside that counts.
As for what is inside this container, despite my complaints, the scent is a very warm musky one. The ingredients describe it as a mix of blazing ginger and galanga with intense bitter orange. And it is this orange scent that comes through most, in the musky wood flavour. I wouldn't describe it as intense or overbearing, just pleasant.
You won't leave a trail stretching for hal;f a mile with this as it seems to have a small range for others too pick up. Loved ones will definitely get close to pick it up. And a couple of squirts in the morning will last right through the day.
Retailing for around £25 for this size, five years on it's still popular and available from major fragrance retailers. It's a thumbs up from me.
one of my favourite daytime fragrances has to be emporio armani city glam. its light, clean, fresh and crisp making it ideal for a day to day fragrance.
although not particularly strong it is a very intreguing fragrance. lasts long enough to need a little top up around lunch and then again before leaving the office on the way home.
doesnt seem to be available in many stores like it used to be. usually in a bargain bin if its seen but deffinately worth picking up if you see it.
although armani fragrances are often thought to be a bit pretentious i would have to disagree on this one. especially if it was to be compared to the likes of diamonds.
I'm no professional when it comes to sniffing out the ingrediants i've read that the main notes are: bitter orange, mint, pepper and ginger. however to me it smells more like mandarin, lemon, a hint of cardomom and leather.
nowadays, due to limited availability I tend not to use it too much, but when i find my next bottle, it'll be back up to my number 1!
