For my Husbands last birthday I brought him a bottle of Emporio Armani Diamonds For Men. It took me quite a while to pick it but with the help of the lady on the perfume counter and her big book of fragrances we chose it because he likes Ultraviolet man and Davidoff Cool Water and Diamonds shares some of the same notes.
I paid around £30 for the 30ml bottle of EDT and to be honest I was quite disappointed with the size of the box and bottle. Maybe I should have forked out just over £40 for the 50ml bottle, but as I was unsure whether this would be a winner with him I didn't want to over spend.
The box is a slightly shiny grey colour with the silver Emporio Armani emblem on the front. We are also told this is eau de toilette pour home and that it is flammable. Nestled within the box is the tiny bottle of EDT. The square bottle is very minimal, only decorated with an etched on image of the Emporio Armani emblem. The lid of the bottle is fixed in place and contains the spray mechanism, so no splashing this all over the face just a few quick squirts will do the job.
Diamonds for men promises heart notes of Vetiver, Cedarwood and Sichuan Pepper, Top notes of Bergamot and Guaiac Wood and base notes of Cacao and Amber.
What I like about this EDT is that it initially has a strong masculine fragrance but soon dries down to a woody oriental scent with Amber adding warmth. It is stronger than Ultraviolet Man and lacking in the sweet floral finish but a lot more subtle than Davidoff Cool Waters which I find to be a very strong fresh scent.
Overall I do like this EDT; it is very similar to Ultraviolet man just a little less sweet. I am not sure that my Husband is as keen on it as he has only taken the top off the tiny bottle in just over a year. It is an EDT he will wear if I remind him that it is hiding behind his industrial sized bottle of Davidoff.
Thank you for reading.
Armani is usually asscoiated with upper class/business type/(posh) people, well you know what I mean anyway, so obviously when buying something made by Armani you know the quality is going to be almost perfect if not perfect, however perfume/aftershave/fragrance (whatever you want to call it) is a completely different field as the smell is of personal taste and may not be perfect to one person as it is to another, BUT I can honestly say whenever i wear this frangrance i always, without fail get comments on how nice i smell and it seems, dare I say perfect for everyone's noses, being a young guy i always want to look and smell my best and comments on how i smell are always a confidence boost.
This was given to me by my auntie, she had bought it from duty free on the way back from dubai, it comes in a silvery box (obviously), with the Armani logo stretched across the front and the sides, the logo in a mirrored finish. The bottle itself comes in a glass bottle with a metal lid, to spray just press down on the metal lid, quite simple, infact everything about the product is very simple from the box to the bottle, but it's a good simple as it works well and of course I cannot question the quality of the product.
Now to the smell, this is where the product shines as a perfume/aftershave should, the smell is indescribable really, the best way i can describe it is it's FRESH, something uplifting and inspiring almost, i can guarantee you will LOVE it! You won't even have to keep re-applying it as it lasts the whole day, definitely for those special occasions, saying that I do sue it every time i go out.
I have the 50ml bottle, I'm not sure how much it was bought for as it was a gift but i've done a bit of research and it's available from a number of places from £25, i've had the bottle for more than a year now and still have about a quarter of it left so it DOES last, with the quality of the product, the freshness of the smell and the price being quite fair in my opinion, i highy HIGHLY recommend this product.
5 stars for me!
Armani, does to me, as it does to many others, rings bells of expense and finesse. It's one of those brands that everyone knows is expensive and somewhat, posh. Now Armani Diamonds comes in a sleek looking glass bottle with a modern looking metal top spray design, it allows effective distribution of the fragrance with ease where others may expect you to pour it out and tap and rub it along your wrists. The scent is indescribable, i do not think i have ever smelt anything as nice as this, it's just a divine aroma, the stink of the £50 price tag may put some off however for me the scent is just to attractive and i think this is the only choice for when you go on that big night out. This really is the best scent that a man could buy and i don't think there is anyone who wouldn't be impressed by this.
I bought this fragrance when on holiday as i went through the "duty free" as id heard only positive things about it. I can confidently say i have only ever had compliments due to it. The fragrance is quite a sharp and sweet smelling aroma, a very female attracting smell, almost like a pheromone to them. It's a fragrance that is suited to any sort of occasion, however this one i like to leave to the important times because this really is something special, I've never smelled anything like it. As already described the bottle is a very simple design a glass bottle with a metal top with simply one Armani logo printed across the glass on the front of the container.
In conclusion this is an amazing fragrance, something that will be loved by everyone and hated by none, however may be not a fragrance for those with a tight wallet because it does come at quite a steep cost and not a price many will be willing to pay however when savored it's a very worthwhile spend.
Nice looking bottle
I bought this fragrance for my boyfriend almost 2 years ago as a graduation present and he has been wearing it on and off (some days he doesn't wear any aftershave) and it has lasted him a long time. The bottle has just about run out so I thought it was time we reviewed it.
When I bought the bottle I got it from Boots and paid about £40 I think for 100ml eau de toilette. This was sort of in the same ball park as other similarly pitched perfumes for men so I didn't think this was outrageous. Especially with how long it has lasted (but I know he doesn't over use and is careful - he doesn't want the smell to be overpowering) I don't mind this price and would buy at a similar price again.
The bottle is quite chunky and he really likes it. It is cuboidal in shape and has an inbuilt press down lid which you press for the quick spray of fragrance. The bottle is cut a bit like a crystal so that it reflects light differently and it is clear which is good as it means you can see how much is left.
The smell of this is really lush. Both myself and the boy really like it (on him). The boyfriend is a youngish man in his 20s and this fragrance I think suits him just right. It smells nice for every day but it also intense enough to last well into the night. I obviously do not have a well trained enough nose to tell the different levels and tones and smells in this fragrance but luckily the specialists at the Perfume Shop do and they say it contains the following: Heart notes; Vetiver, cedarwood, sichuan pepper, Top notes; Bergamot, guaiac wood, Base notes; Cacao, amber, Scent; Woody Oriental, Feel; Desirable, Individual, Irresistible.
I have to say I haven't heard of most of these things but it smells gorgeous and it suits a young busy man.
The staying power is ok, I don't think it stays for aaages without reapplication but that might be my nose getting used to it and they say fragrances last for longer depending on the person who is wearing it and how their body is.
I really recommend trying a bottle of this as it can become a signature scent and it smells really nice.
Giorgio Armani is known to me as an exclusive brand. They always have a product that looks like absolutely unique just like this bottle. The bottle is very simple but it looks chic. It is thick, sturdy glass and is transparent in color. On the front is only a triangle with the logo of Giorgio Armani. The top is very nice. A shiny silver cap give the finishing touch. The bottle is easy to use. It lays comfortably in the hand and the spray is not difficult to use. However it sprays quite a lot which is quite annoying because the smell is very strong at the beginning.
The smell is very strong at the beginning. The scent It is white and resembles water. The smell is very overwhelming and a bit sweet. After a few minutes the smell is quite different. Much less common and very fresh. You smell clearly the citrus in the fragranced. The smell stays long with you during the day but get less and less until at the end of the day is nothing left. It's really a flavor that I like and certainly a daytime fragrance since it's so fresh.
You notice the citrus really well but the fragrance also has a bit spicy scent and comes more forward when it settles down. You have bergamot, vetiver, cedar, cacao and amber. All together makes it a really fresh and interesting combination.
The bottle grabs your attention from the first moment you see it and it looks stunning. But the bottle isn't of course the most important part. It's all about the smell and I was pleasantly surprised by it's freshness and hint of spiciness. Its more the lovely scent of citrus that you notice and that makes it for me a more day time fragrance. It last almost all day and would say that you better spray again before dinner if you also want to use it at night. All in all 5 stars for me!
Hi there, i`m a bit of a Fragrance groupie and have a lot of different aftershaves and I have to say that out of every aftershave I own or have smelt, there are 2 that sit at the top of the list and Armani Diamonds is one of the 2. I know its expensive but believe me it's worth every penny. I cant remember getting so many " you smell gorgeous " comments from women since my Fahrenheit school days. Top notes are bergamot and guaiac wood; middle notes are vetiver, cedar and sichuan pepper; base notes are cacao and amber. In my opinion it oozes sexy and it smells even better when mixed with my body chemistry. Not one person has said its just OK, all who mention it do so in very good terms. To top it off it comes in a thick glass bottle almost crystal like with a chrome built in lid and a box that has the very memorable Armani badge on it. If your thinking about purchasing this but are unsure, spray a bit on to test and if it mixes with your body chemistry, reach for wallet and don't look back.
Well as a woman I have difficulty deciding what perfume I like for myself so found it even more baffling when looking for my boyfriend, after exhausting all other options I decided to go with fragrance as he needed more and thought I'd get a new one for him as he sticks to the same few. So off I went to all the different fragrance shops smelling practically every male fragrance with lots of tester strips and narrowed it down to a limited few, this being one of them.
I personally really like the Armani brand of perfumes but my boyfriend had never tried it nor mentioned he had liked it so did take a risk when deciding on this one. I chose this one as it was a fresh smelling fragrance but wasn't too overpowering. Thankfully he loved the gift and I have to say it smelt even better on him, as smelling the bottle isn't exactly a true smell.
When ever considering an aftershave to purchase this one has to be considered because in my opinion it is the best one out on the market. It is great as a gift for a birthday, christmas or even just to buy someone it as a present. With it coming from a very reputable brand you will take notice of it anyway.
With three different sizes on the market for this you have a few options at which one you want to purchase. For the smallest 30ml it is £30, 50ml for £40 and 75ml for £49.50. All these prices are from Boots so you may find them cheaper I am not to sure. Obviously the best value one is the 75ml but if your buying it for the first time I don't recommend getting the 30ml version. You will be better off going into a fragrance store and just testing it out. That way if you like it you can save money and get the 75ml bottle.
The scent on this I think is amazing, unike other aftershaves which die off after a couple of hours this will stay on my clothes and is a beautiful smell. It is difficult to describe what it smells like but I would describe it as a very sweet and the longer it is on you the more it settles into you. I think it would be best for you to go and try it yourself because I am not the best at describing scents. You could pt a few squirts on your clothes and you will be suprised at how long this actually does stay on you.
I would recommend wearing this for maybe a visit to a restuarant. It is one of them aftershaves which are just to good for every day use. Obviously you don't have to follow this and you can wear it whenever you feel btu that is my recommendation.
Overall I recommend purchasing this before you even consider getting any other aftershave. Maybe £50 for a bottle of aftershave may sound a bit steep but it does last quite a while depending on how much you use. Unlike other aftershaves which smell really cheap and nasty this one has a sense of class about it which is always a good thing.
I'm sure most of you got some kind of Eau de toilette gift at Christmas, As well as the usual Lynx gift pack I received a lovely gift set of popular Diesel and Giorgio Armani fragrances. One of the bottles contained in this gift set was the Emporio Armani Diamonds Eau de Toilette. After having tried some of the other fragrances for men in the brand I was very interested to see what this new Diamond fragrance was like. This is the first of the gift set which I have chosen to review. More reviews to come soon.
**Emporio Armani Diamonds**
You will have seen the huge ad campaign for the female version which stars Beyonce Knowles but the male version also features a big star in Josh Hartnett. The bottle is a nice looking distinctive look with see through glass. I must say that I was attracted to this fragrance by the ad campaign as it looked like a fragrance I would like and having been pleased with previous sprays in the Emporio Armani range I was eager to try a sample in store and see what I thought. I was instantly attracted to the scent and was looking for a smaller gift set as I still had some CK fragrances left from the summer sale in Boots. The Nose behind this fragrance was Jacques Cavallier.
When you spend money on a fragrance you want it to be pretty versatile. Once you have sprayed this fragrance on the usual places you will experience that fresh woody scent which is aromatic and very captivating. Like other fragrances this one also has different scents which change every couple of hours after use.
You get the lovely mix of citruses, guaiac wood and topped with bergamot which opens things well and lasts for a good three hours or so before it moves into the middle notes.
This is where the scent changes to a more spicy feel with vetiver, cedar and sichuan pepper mixing together to create a very nice mild fragrance which has hints of spice but is still relaxed and smooth.
We finish things off with a lovely duo of cacao and amber which blend together to continue off from the feel of the middle notes. Spicy but yet smooth and relaxed. Starts to fade after around 3-4 hours.
I feel that this is a very versatile fragrance which although ideal for Night time wear is also suitable for many other occasions and is light enough for work and other things like that. I would probably recommend this fragrance for men between the ages of 18-50 but I would not say that it has a particular cut off point. If you have tried other fragrances in the range or any of the big fragrances from Jacques Cavallier like Bvlgari and Issey Miyake L'Eau d'Issey then you will probably like this one too.
I would recommend this fragrance to any man who likes to wear a nice fragrance and to any woman who likes their man to smell of a really nice Fragrance. It is on the expensive side at around £29 for a 30ml bottle but it really is a nice fragrance so it might be an idea to look around for the best deal if you have tried this in the store and really liked it. I may get one if the price comes down when I have finished all of the samples from my Gift Set.
Emporio Armani Diamonds; By Giorgio Armani is without a doubt pure sex in a bottle, One of my favorite colognes in the world, and I've used quite a few. Armani masters the art of cologne as he has many times before with fashion. While I understand that Scent is based totally on opinion and everyone's is different I have to say that I would never give this cologne a bad review, personally I like it alot as does my girlfriend (hence the title of this review.), I think the best part about it is you can wear it during the day, like at school or the office or whatever, but you can also wear it at night, with a more formal aproach. Really what I'm saying is you can both dress this up and dress it down, depending on what you want to do. Personally this has become by personal scent, which was before Calvin Klein Euphoria. To see if you like it before shelling out for the full price, go to a department store or something and try it out, see how you like it.
Brand new fantastic fragrance from Emporio Armani.
Lingering sensual, burning accents:the refined, radiant freshness of the Italian citrus-bergamot accord is enlivened by a vibrant, electric burst of Szechuan Pepper. Cedar, the iconic embodiment of masculinity, is shaken up by the addictive and unexpected power of the deliciously familiar, intimate and alluring cocoa bean.
The slightly smoky gaiac wood and intense vetiver are set off by ambroxan with warm flinty accents. (Armani Website)
This fragrance is one of the nicest on the market. It combines a sweet aroma with a masculine smell. This will definately be popular with Males in general but could well be described as a more youthful product.
The longevity of this is one of its best points. A few sprays in the morning and you will be able to smell it all day. Similarly if you spray it before a night out you will be able to notice it even in a club. This is pretty perfect and definately an important factor in determining which fragrance to buy.
This is the male version of the much advertised Diamonds for women. You will probably have seen the television adverts with Beyonce. Armani have put much effort into this new fragrance range and as such you know it will be good.
The only reason that it gets four stars out of five and not the full five is because it is expensive. It is more expensive than other options so the competition does have an edge. However, whilst it costs extra, it lasts longer that its competition so you must consider the price more than simply how much £ per Ml it is.
I would recommend this to anyone buying for a younger Male around the late teen early twenties mark. It is slightly different from the classic fragrances that would be more popular with the older gentlemen which leads me to suggest it is more geared for the younger generation. Buy with confidence that you will have a lovely fragrance with good staying power.
