I‘ve told you a million times before but my best friend always let me smell these amazing, yet expensive perfumes, that I always end up purchasing. One of the perfumes she got me hooked to is Giorgio Armani Sí. It’s a very popular perfume in the beauty world and that’s definitely for a good reason. From the moment I first smelled it I fell in love with it, it’s an amazingly good smelling scent and it’s very versatile. At first I didn’t want to buy it because I already have a ton of perfumes, but since I couldn’t stop thinking about it I finally ended up buying it anyways. I’ve had it for quite a while now, which is why I felt like it’s about time to review this beauty. So, if you’re interested in finding out more about this perfume, make sure you continue reading!
Before we start talking about the perfume itself, let’s first talk about the bottle it comes in. For me the design of a perfume bottle is very important. I love having some gorgeous bottle on display so whenever a perfume comes in a hideous bottle this could definitely be a dealbreaker for me. Luckily this bottle is quite pretty. It’s definitely not the eye-catcher on my perfume platter, but I do like it quite a bit.
The shape of the bottle is rather basic. It’s just a normal bottle shape. What makes it pretty is the fact that the perfume that is inside has a nice colour which you can see through the glass, and that the lid is quite cute. I think it has a pretty and also a very unique shape and I just like what it does for the overall look of the bottle. The size of the bottle obviously depends on how much fluid is inside, so which one you buy, the for a 30 ml perfume I do think this bottle has a decent size. It’s not abnormally/excessively large and I appreciate that about it.

Before I start telling you guys about what I think this perfume smells like and what the quality is like, let’s first take a look at the description Giorgio Armani provides us with. This is what Armani has to say about their Sì perfume on their website:
“At once chic, voluptuous, intense, and soft, Sì eau de parfum lingers on the skin and enchants the senses. The distinguished and elegant olfactory result plays on emotion, true to the Giorgio Armani couture spirit.
The women’s fragrance combines three notes: blackcurrant nectar, modern chypre, and blond wood musk with touches of freesia and May rose scent. This new perfume has been created for the modern woman who’s strong yet feminine, sophisticated yet charismatic. She embodies the very essence of chic Italian elegance and style.
She says YES to life!Sì to StrengthSì to DreamsSì to FreedomSì to LoveSì to Myself.”
All together what Giorgio Armani is saying here is that this is a modern fragrance with a feminine yet sophisticated feel to it. I think that’s a great way to describe this perfume. It is very womenly but also quite fresh but not in a cheapy way. It’s very unique. Sì is definitely one of those scents you can recognise from miles away.
And that’s what I like about it. Another thing I like about this scent is that it’s quite strong and that it lingers for quite a long time as well. It’s not strong in a way you smell like you have bathed in perfume for about six million ages and every pore of you is now filled with this fragrance, but it’s strong enough for people to smell it -and then compliment you on how beautiful you smell- and it’s even strong enough for yourself to smell it. And especially that last part is impressive to me. If you wear a perfume for a couple of weeks straight you usually don’t really smell it on yourself anymore, but for some reason even after wearing this perfume for months, I still smell it on me.
The best thing of all is that you only need one, two sprays tops, in order for you to smell that great all day long. Therefore you don’t use a lot of perfume at once at all and so this bottle will last you forever. I always think that that’s a huge, huge plus in perfumes because let’s be honest. Who feels like spending that amount of money on a bottle of scent-water for the second time around. I know I don’t!
Overall I think that Giorgio Armani’s Sì is a great scent. It’s a very unique scent, one that doesn’t really remind me of anything else, and one that makes me get a lot of compliments on my scent. It’s also a perfume that you don’t need a lot of in order to smell it, it lingers all day long and I can even smell it myself all day long. I really love wearing this perfume and I’m glad I bought it, so if you’re on the hunt for something unique and feminine, I highly recommend this one to you!
That’s it for today’s review. I hope you enjoyed reading it and be sure to let me know if you’ve ever smelled Giorgio Armani Sí, and if so, let me know how you like this scent!
