Giorgio Armani Si is one of my all time favourite scents and I absolutely love it. I first tried it in Duty Free at the airport and I knew I had to have it in my life. I can't imagine not having it in my collection. Today, I am comparing all the versions of Si for you: Si EDT, Si EDP and Si Intense EDP. They are all similar, but each one has a different twist.
Let's start with the original Giorgio Armani Si EDP. It was the first Si fragrance I got my hands on and I am now on my second bottle. It's simply stunning! It's elegant and classy, but also very intoxicating, sweet and fruity. I will recognise it anywhere. It is my most used Si fragrance and it is perfect as a daytime & night time scent. I adore the beautiful blackcurrant (cassis) and vanilla notes and the touch of patchouli and blond woods adds a nice depth to this iconic EDP.
Top Notes: Sicilian Bergamot, Mandarin Oil, Liquer de Cassis
Heart Notes: Rose de Mai Absolute, Neroli Absolute, Egyptian Jasmine Absolute
Base Notes: Patchouli Oil, Blond Woods, Amber, Orcanox™, Vanille Absolute
If you find the original Si EDP too strong, Si EDT* might be a better option, as it is much lighter and more floral. It's a Delicate interpretation of Si, but it still smells similar. Perfect for daytime. The blackcurrant note reminds me of my grandmum's garden and the vanilla adds a gourmand touch I look for in my fragrances.
Top Notes: Blackcurrant Sorbet, Mandarin & Pear
Heart Notes: Rose De Mai Essence & Freesia
Base Notes: Musk, Vanilla & Patchouli
And if you are a hardcore fan of Si, you need Si Intense EDP* in your life. It's insanely beautiful and lasts on my skin for days! It has more depth than Si EDP, but the notes of blackcurrant, vanilla and mandarin are still very prominent. Unlike the other two Si scents, this one smells a bit more spicy and woody to me and I love wearing it in the evening or during the colder months.
Top Notes: Bergamote Essence, Cassis Neo Jungle , Mandarine Essence, Accord Freesia
Heart Notes: Rose de Mai Superessence, Fleur d‘Oranger, Davana Essence, Osmanthus Absolute
Base Notes: Fir Balsam Absolue, Benjoin Résinoïde, Patchouli Essence, Orcano, Vanille Abs. & Pure J.Essence
All of the bottles have the same shape, but the EDT comes with a powder pink cap and the Intense features a super luxurious black flacon with gold writing. Beautiful!
I love all of the Si fragrances, with the original being my most used one for any occasion, the EDT as a daytime option and Intense for the evening, due to it's strength and depth. I can't recommend these enough. Are you a Si fan?
