Beads of nostalgia trickle down the sides of the elegant bottle, lovingly crafted in the memory of his mother. In his latest fragrance, Si, Giorgio Armani reinvents his favorite Chypre fragrance, which has always played a reminder of Guerlain’s Mitsouko, worn by his mother. Exclusively available at Harrods, Armani’s Chypre creation is modern- day embodiment of the timeless classic and opens with sultry notes of Sicilian bergamot, mandarin oil and liqueur de cassis. In the heart of it are bottled bursts of rose de mai absolute, neroli absolute and Egyptian jasmine absolute. Warm undertones caress Si’s unique Chypre base of patchouli oil intertwined with blonde woods, amber and musky undertones known as Orcanox.
Si finishes off with a vivacious vanille absolute which renders this fragrance an exquisite longevity.
Starting at £85 ($130) for a 100ml EDP, Giorgio Armani Si is available in-store and online, only at Harrods.
