Emporio Armani Stronger With You

Despite the cheesy name, this is quite an impressive fragrance. It's a rather strong, luxurious scent; I got a friend to test it out for me, and he couldn't stop raving about the longevity. 
Notes: 
Top notes: Pink Pepper Essence, Apple Accord, Violet Leaves Accord
Heart: Lavender Essence, Sage Essence, Cardamom Essence, Cinnamon Essence
Base notes: Glazed Chestnut Accord, Cedar Tree Essence, Guaiac Essence, Amber Wood

As you can see, there are plenty of intense notes (Sage, Cardamom, Cinnamon) that come into play during the scent's development. The sweet cardamom and amber wood- to me- are the most prominent notes. It's an interesting fragrance as it's warm and oriental yet slightly sweet at the same time. The sweetness surprised me as I was expecting a very spicy, overwhelming scent. 

I've heard some comparisons of this to Paco Rabanne's One Million, and I really must disagree. Although Stronger With You is not the most original scent on the fragrance market, it's definitely a good one as it's modern and classy. I actually haven't yet tried the women's version (as I'm more of an Armani Si fan!), but I'm told that's a decent fragrance too. 

Emporio Armani's Stronger With You by Emporio Armani is available nationwide.

Si by Giorgio Armani review

In 2013, Giorgio Armani launched a fragrance called 'Si', a unique, sophisticated chypre fragrance that's been a popular favourite for women globally, and I fell in love with it straight away.

The bottle of Si is fairly simple and the clear glass reveals the golden tinted juice, signifying that it's a luxurious, elegant fragrance. Overall, it looks like an expensive perfume.

I love chypre fragrances so Si is definitely the fragrance for me. I love how feminine, and luxurious it is; the scent embodies female power, confidence, and elegance. It's a bit of everything to be honest- sweet, floral, woody, and warm so it's unique.
