I was first starting into the world of fragrance, I thought Pi was
pure vanilla, utterly feminine and not one bit my style. I used to
hate the stuff. But now after a few more years of olfactory
development and evolved tastes, it has really grown on me. I own
both the Eau de Toilette and Eau de Parfum strength of Pi, both of
which are very nice yet different from each other. Pi EDT smells
like a toasted vanilla pastry with a lightening, smooth orange accord
and a subtle almond-like accord that just smells great. The strong
vanilla note is very smooth and sexy; and remember, vanilla is an
aphrodisiac. The warm Guaiac wood accord emerges as it dries down,
adding a little more depth and body to the sweetness. The EDP is
definitely richer in its concentrated sweetness. Here the orange
note smells more candy-like when blended with the sweeter, more
benzoin focused, somewhat dark balsamic and ambery base notes of Pi
EDP. The EDP is not as smooth as the EDT, with top notes that smell
like candy rather than pastry. The wood note is a little more dense,
dark and pure in the EDP, adding perfectly to its exotic feel. The EDP becomes very dark, balsamic and woody after it dries down for about an hour, but retains some of its sweetness. I
prefer the EDP myself as it has a more exotic, sexy and mysterious
feel to it than the pastry feel of the EDT. The EDT is very much a unisex fragrance, but the EDP is too dark and woody for women IMO. I give
the EDT a 4 and the EDP a 5.
