This is one of those aromas that has over 15 notes, but still manages to smell great and the combination between these notes is very complementary as they allow each other to smell nice without contradicting each other. Emporio Armani has multiple citrusy notes making it incredibly fresh and scintillating. It has to be said that it does this without smelling too sharp which is great because you don’t want that citrusy smell to be too exaggerated that it becomes too much for others to bear with.
It also has cedar and sandalwood notes which give it a darker and masculine tone. Although it’s more suited for spring and daytime wear, Emporio Armani is a fragrance that you can wear anytime of the year and anytime of the day. The citrusy notes will be excellent while the sun is out and the weather is a little warm while the darker notes will be perfect for after dawn and during the colder months. An argument could be made that this would make an excellent signature scent, but unfortunately the longevity is a bit average as it lasts about 5 hours so you may want to spray it on once or twice during the day in addition to the morning spray.
The bottle design is pretty interesting. It comes in a completely black cylinder that kind of looks like deodorant bottles except fancier. It’s not made of glass so you don’t have to worry about it breaking. It actually looks elegant if you ask me. As for price, Emporio Armani costs about $50 which you can’t consider expensive for a fragrance that you might end up using all the time and that fits every occasion.
