Cate Blanchett and Armani have had a long professional relationship together, with Blanchett often wearing Armani couture on the red carpet and professing her love and admiration for the designer. It came as no surprise to see Cate as the new face of Armani, for their newest campaign Si.
I was lucky enough to receive a sample of Si to try out, as I always love a new perfume. The fragrance types I usually go for fall into the Oriental or floral so with Si featuring heart notes of freesia and May rose, I expected this to be right up my street.
The top notes of cassis, combined with heart notes of freesia and may rose and base notes of vanilla, patchouli and woody notes settle on my skin and give off a very synthetic, sickly smell. It was a very strange powdery smell, and one that I really didn’t like at all. However, after a few hours the scent totally changed. It was a very sexy, cassis and patchouli infused scent that was was unlike anything I’d worn before. I could smell a creamy, fruity smell and it felt quite fresh. Its definitely a unique scent and I think i’d need to try another sample bottle before I make my mind up.
For now, the jury is out!
Have you tried Armani Si? How did you like it?
