My first encounter with this perfume was at Debenhams on Oxford street back about a year ago, they were handing out tester strips to customers and I took one.
My initial reaction was “mhmm…nice scent” but I didn’t think to buy it. I however didn’t throw away the strip but kept it in my pocket, completely forgotten.
When I got home and was emptying said pocket, I perceived the scent again and it was sooo good. I was surprised that the tiny strip managed to emit such fragrance and to last for this long. I naturally decided I wanted that perfume. On my last trip, I picked up a bottle at the duty free shop.
“Si is my tribute to modern femininity, an irresistible combination of grace, strength and independent spirit.”
This is definitely a scent for the modern woman. It is chic and sexy, with a hint of masculinity in a way that exudes elegance, without being over the top. It takes a while for the scent to sink in and the longer you wear it the better the scent.
On first spritz, the fragrance opens with notes of Sicilian Bergamot, Mandarin oil and a sharp whiff of blackcurrant liqueur which is supported by a heart which bursts with Rose May, Neroli and Egyptian Jasmine. Warm undertones of Patchouli oil intertwined with Blond Woods and amber. It finishes with a sweet vanilla which gives a powerful and exuberant fragrance.
Although it has a quiet undertone which I do not like. This is a perfect scent for a cold night all year round… but can also be worn during the day based on your preference. It really is long lasting and uniquely scented.
