Newer fragrance: As Oscar season has just wrapped up, we cannot ignore acknowledging one of the latest and most successful fragrances launched at the end of 2013, which is now gaining more momentum with actress Cate Blanchett’s big win at the Oscars: Armani’s Si.
If you haven’t heard of it, it is time you checked it out in shops everywhere and maybe even bought it.
According to some experts, this new perfume is an absolute accomplishment, which is only equaled by the house’s classic Aqua di Gioia. It belongs in the cyphre perfumes category and is fronted by Blanchett- switching the focus from the conventionally young and sexy model Armani uses for its recent fragrances. This means the target is more mature and sophisticated women who know how to appreciate a true designer’s creation.
This fruity and sophisticated creation opens very clearly with delicate and assertive notes of Sicilian Bergamot, Mandarin oil and Liquer de Cassis. At the heart of the whole edifice you will find several stronger, classically recognized notes of Rose de Mai absolute, Neroli absolute and Egyptian Jasmine absolute. After a few minutes of wearing, you will be overwhelmed by warm undertones of cyphre combinations. Patchouli oil stands out from these notes. Amber and musky tones are also felt. Everything is wrapped up with a sweet accord of vanilla, which will give this entire composition a longevity and power.
