I recieved a sample of this from a lovely MUAer and I immediately knew this was fb worthy. I love berries in a fragrance and the litchi and raspberries open the sweet, fresh and crisp, but not too much so. The vanilla, patch, and amber add a warming balance to keep the fruity top notes from being "childish". EAD is sparkely and fun, sophisticated and sexy (just like diamonds). Love it!!
This is my go-to perfume! My pet peeves include perfumes with no lasting power! I don't buy perfume just to smell it for like 20minutes! i want to spritz myself before i leave the house and be able to smell it throughout the day or when i hug someone for them to pause and know its because they are smelling me! Sounds strange but you know what i mean, this perfume smells nice, but not a floral generic as others on the market, sweet yet still toned down with a musky overtone, i love musky pefumes, i love the decadent and human-ish smell (ok, that sounds gross i know), this strikes a nice medium for me and its pretty inoffensive compared to some other perfumes i really fancy (alien by theirry muqler (sp?, givenchy au ou demon etc) It is my signature scent which if i had to define it would speak as: I'm different, i'm independent, i'm sensual and warm!
Would I buy this again? YES YES YES! I totally love it. I like the fact that it's a bit bitter mixed with fresh notes and musk - perfect combination! It is in my top 5 faves and I will keep buying this again and again.
You're probably wondering why I gave it just 4 lippies. Well, because it does not last a lot (I am talking about the EDT version). The staying power is between 3 and 4 hours which is not a lot IMO. I love it so much and I would like to feel it on me all day long.
My new favorite! Perfect for day or evening. I wear it to work but also find myself wanting to wear it when I go out. Slightly fruity, slightly musky, sweet but not nauseatingly so. Just the perfect scent. I prefer it to the Intense version, which is very similar - just a tiny bit deeper.
I just recieved this in a swap and I LOVE IT!! when I first sprayed it, I about chocked. Its very strong initially, but the dry down is fantastic. Very feminine without being too sweet or too floral. Perfect everyday fragrance. So glad I swapped for it!!!
The scent has a very sophiscated smell to it which I like, because the odour is not too over-powering when I wear it and the smell is just divine and floral even when I'm not wearing it I just smell it from the bottle haha.
I'm normally not a fan of perfumes, but I would buy occasionally since perfumes is not my everyday thing but I just enjoy smelling them. I got this for £15 as a discount from a friend's cousin, because she's a L'oreal manager and it was worth the purchase even though I wouldn't say this from the orginial price as it's of course an expensive brand.
The packaging quality is simple yet unqiue it's something I would carry around if I wanted to. I really love the Armani logo on the front it looks very classy. If I had to purchase it again I would say 'Yes' most definitely, probably the most perfume in my list I would buy.
My favorite cologne, I just love the way this smells, so classy and ladylike without being "too girly."
love this!! I went and repurchase it, but ended up picking up the diamonds intense, as it just came out at the time. its a lovely mixture between fruity and sweet. And ofcourse... i LOVE beyonce!!
When I first sprayed this, I absolutely hated it (smelt a little bit like nail varnish remover) but I gave it an hour or so and it smelt absolutely divine, the raspberry and lychee remaining detectable but not overpowering. The lasting power was also pretty good - three sprays lasted 6 hours which doesn't happen very often for me. I'm going to treasure the bottle I have now but don't think that it's the kind of perfume I'll go back to again and again (it's a bit too sweet for summer and too fruity for winter).
this perfume is sweet and its long lasting.all i could smell after the dry down is syntecthic smell and its a bit boring because the fragrance stays the same,it doesnt change that much.
after about 2 weeks of spraying this i dont like the smell anymore maybe its just me because i got bored with perfume easily. i just feel a bit sick and got a little headache when i smell this fragrance now. this fragrance is not bad, its just me being fussy i think.
oh and i NEVER get compliments when i wear this perfume.
