I'm a complete perfume lover, and although I have tried many many fragrances, I only have two in my collection that I keep coming back to: Emporio She and the original Princess by Vera Wang. Emporio She is absolutely the most elegant, sexy, playful, and unique fragrance I have smelled. It is light (not overpowering at all), clean, juicy, sweet (but definitely NEVER too sweet or candy sweet), and it's just delicious. I don't think I've ever smelled it on any other woman before, and that is perfect. I dislike generic scents that everyone seems to buy, but this one defeats all of them. I think the price of $45 that I payed for it is cheap compared to the quality of the perfume. CHANEL #5 can go hide! This is a revolutionary perfume!
Ok, so based on the reviews at Make Up Alley, I decided to give this a shot...right on my arm. It smelled really nice at first, light. feminine, and sweet, Just as the cashier was ringing up my purchase, I got whiff of a pasty, gummy scent. Like one reader said, it reacted with my body's chemistry and came out smelling like sweet Play-Dough. I was annoyed and knew I'd get nasueas..nawshus...pretty darn sick if I kept it on any longer. I immediately grabbed my old standard, Acqua di Gio, instead and told her to cancel my purchase for She. This perfume really does smell good but only on certain people.
I've worn it every day for years... Bottles and bottles I have gone through (ok. maybe only 2 or 3).
I love that I've never smelled it on anyone else. Ever.
Sexy but not girly.
Tempted to not leave this review because I don't want to start smelling it on everyone I walk by...
I have the golden bottle. really wanted to like this one, like all of you out there! but alas! why does it remind me of "play-dough"? maybe i out to give it another try?
i was at sephora looking for a new scent to try out....since i'm a vanilla lover and tend to wear pure vanillas so much, i forget there are other fragrance notes out there lol. i needed a change. the sa suggested armani code and emporio she as well. i had not tried either of them, or had really heard too much about them, but took some samples. 'she' is great and very comforting. in the beginning it smells a 'tiny' bit masculine, but the heart and drydown is really sensual. i also smell a kind of "clean" element to this as well.....that fresh smell one would associate with a soapy clean. it doesn't smell like soap or anything, but reminds me of a clean, fresh smell. it's very well done. seems as the lasting power is pretty good too. NOTES: Angelica, Cardamom, Bergamot, Mandarin, Heliotrope, Vanilla, Cedar, Musk STYLE: Intrinsically feminine.
I haven't worn this perfume for about 3 or 4 years and now after reading these reviews and reminding myself of how much I used to love it I have no idea why? I loved the soft, warm, powdery sexiness of it and even though I thought it sexy it still brought a comfort to me in it's scent. I think I need to go out and by some this afternoon.
I wore Emporio Armani She when it first came out, it was such a hit with my guy friends that two went out and purchased the male version of the fragrance. Eventually, I did get bored with it and ended up giving my bottle away. A few years later, I was gifted another bottle of Emporio but promptly dismissed it and ended up exchanging it for what I thought at the time would be a scent I would actually wear more often (still have that bottle and it's more then half full - will not name any names ;)). But recently my lil sister got herself a bottle of Emporio and this has reentered my life once again - she wears Emporio She so well that I just had to get myself a bottle again and this time around I am enjoying it far more then ever before. I just had to face it, with all the other fragrances I have and enjoy – both niche and mainstream, - Emporio She easily sets itself apart from everything else I own – it’s quite unique. I really look forward to wearing it again.
my boyfriend bought this for me because he loves the smell of it. it smells a bit powdery to me but otherwise i like it. it is not my go to fragrance but im fairly certain that anyone can wear it. the only complaint about the bottle- is i prefer ones with caps instead of just a button to spray it. plus i like being able to see how much i have left and on this i cant.
Yep I too am a She devotee, it's light, pretty, modern and distinct. The packaging is unusual and handy to throw in the bag. I have to watch it on headache days as it can be slightly cloying - but aside form that its a classic anytime scent that is a staple on my dresser.
A friend of mine wore this amazingly nice and intoxicating fragrance which I tought was also very sexy. When I asked her, she showed me the very pretty bottle and I sprayed some on on myself and I guess I liked it then also... When I was in town a few days later I just bought it in a whim, thinking I could't be wrong on this one since I already knew how much I liked it. Strange thing was...I never liked it again ever since, at least not on myself. Actually, I couldn't stand it on myself! So weird.. So I gave mine away to that particular friend, which was ofcourse very pleased with it, which made it somewhat less of a sad experience...
