Giorgio Armani launched Si in 2013 and while I’ve seen it advertised (it’s hard to miss the beauty that is Cate Blanchett) and I like sniffing new scents I’m rarely enticed to stray from my favourites. I recently came home to a beautifully-packaged box and immediately regretted letting this one pass me by until now. In a nutshell: it’s become my go-to perfume.
With notes of blackcurrant nectar, modern chypre and blond wood musk, and touches of freesia and May rose, Si is light and pretty but also strong – a light spritz lasts all day. I especially adore blackcurrant-based perfume and it feels so appropriate at this time of year. I’ve loved Emporio Armani Diamonds for years (let’s be honest, I appreciate anything with Beyoncé associations) but it feels too young for me now. Si, described as “a tribute to modern feminity”, is the perfect fragrance for the grown-up Armani fan.
