Emporio Armani Perfume – Diamonds Notes:
Top Notes: Litchi and Raspberry
Middle Notes: Freesia and Lily of the Valley
Base Notes: Vetiver, Cedar wood, Patchouli and Vanilla.
My Experience with this fragrance:
The first time I spritzed this perfume, the only things I could think of were candies, raspberries and roses. The initial blast of litchis and raspberries is refreshing and light, and the fragrance slowly blends to the middle notes of Freesia and Lily of the Valley. Though the top notes are of fruits, there isn’t much fruitiness in the fragrance. Instead it reminds me of litchi and raspberry flavoured artificial drinks and lollipops.
The floral touch of this Emporio Armani perfume isn’t prominent, and all I can think of are, candies placed near a vase full of few days old roses. The fragrance maintains its mild sweetness after a while and I could smell the essence of vanilla, cedar wood and vetiver. I couldn’t smell much of Patchouli, but that may be just my nose.
The packaging of the perfume is apt to its name – “Diamonds”. The bottle comes in a diamond like design, however I didn’t find it very impressive. It looks sort of bland and lusterless – like a cheap replica of a diamond. Anyways, coming back to the fragrance, I feel it to be more appropriate for the 18-23 age group, as it is quite young and sweet fragrance.
If I have to think about occasions, then this is a nice inoffensive day time fragrance that you can wear while going for shopping, work or college. The fragrance is more appropriate for Spring-summer season.
The staying power of this perfume is 4-5 hours max, and the sillage is moderate.
Let us have a quick look at some of the likes and dislikes I’ve felt about Emporio Armani perfume for women ~ Diamonds:
1) If you love sweet fragrances then this could be an apt one for you. It starts on the notes of the sweetness of litchis balanced with a tinge of raspberries, then move on to candied fragrances of freesia and lily of the valley. After a few hours, vanilla dominates the notes with a bit of woody touch from cedar wood and vetiver.
2) A safe sweet fragrance that you can wear any day and at any time.
3) Moderate staying power.
1) The perfume smells a lot powdery and synthetic.
2) Even though the bottle design is made to remind you of diamonds, I found it quite bland and lackluster.
