My mother gave me this, she bought it but decided she wasn't keen on it after wearing it a few times. I have tried to find a price on the net but have found it very difficult, it is more commonly sold in smaller bottles with a 50ml bottle usually costing around the £40 mark. It also doesn't seem all that widely available.
I love this scent for work, it is sophisticatedly different with its powdery oriental scent. It isn't too strong without being to light to be noticeable. It has a definite vanilla scent as it's main scent. I am not usually a lover of vanilla based scents but this one pulls it off well. It is not old fashioned or too young.
I have had rather a few comments on this perfume, I am told it is very lady like without being overtly sexual.
To me this is a perfume which will add confidence, you wont be worrying about if people will like it or if you are stinking of it to the point where people will think you have tried too hard.
This is rather an expensive scent but it is an EDP and not an EDT, the scent lasts on the skin well, I can usually still smell it when I get into bed at night.
A great perfume for the daytime!
I don't know if I will replace this when it is gone or not as there are so many out there to try still but if I was given it I would be amazingly pleased!
I started using this perfume some four years ago. But in the last year I've been testing and wearing many others that got me distracted from it. Last week a draft in the bedroom brought a hint of the fragrance to my nose. Now my addiction is back with a vengeance. So I may as well share this really special fragrance while I'm at it.
Sensi was released by Giorgio Armani in the spring of 2003. It is described as vibrant and sensual. This perfect balance is achieved by initial sparkling notes, followed by soft and warm notes. To my perception the scent is consistently exotic, even oriental, but without ever being heavy. The fresh top notes are also spicy, the later sweet/woody ones are soft and stay close to the skin.
If it makes any sense, exotic places have a warm climate in one's mind. That's why I like wearing complex and warm fragrances even when it's warm. Among these Sensi is the most wearable, and yet it is quite unusual in it's category. At the same time, the perfume's mild sweetness makes it a soothing comfort blanket for lousy weather. The EDP concentration gives it excellent staying power, regardless of the temperature. As further reference, one might compare it to Casmir by Chopard, but in a toned down version. As I overdid that one in its time, it's good to have a more agreeable alternative now.
There are also body products available; shower gel, body lotion and perfumed deodorant. A year later, a seasonal version was released, called White Notes. I haven't had the chance to test it, but descriptions indicate a white floral, despite a number of notes in common. To me it sounds like a step down, I can do without florals, but I'm still curious. I can't find out what concentration it is.
The whole range is hard to get hold of in the UK, but apparently it has not been discontinued. In mainland Europe, airports and online stores, the products seem to be available without problems.
I'll add lists of the RRPs for all the products I could find and also all the fragrance notes. It's well worth shopping around, there are lower prices available.
EDP 50ml/100ml £45/£60
shower gel 200ml £23
body lotion 200ml £25
deodorant 100ml £20
top notes: Kaffir Lime, Acacia
middle notes: Cape Jasmine, Barley

I realize, I'm actually struggling to describe this scent adequately. So if you'd like to know more, please ask.
Thanks for reading.
