Giorgio Armani Is Cool Again: Code Eau de Parfum and Acqua di Giò Profondo Lights

Very recently, my colleague Igor wrote about Armani Code Eau de Parfum, and his opinion was extremely positive: He loved the fragrance. I was intrigued, since I used to wear Armani Code back in the time when it was launched, and I still think it was a gorgeous and innovative fragrance, in the formula created by perfumer Antoine Lie. Today, after the reformulation, it smells different – still... Read full article: Giorgio Armani Is Cool Again: Code Eau de Parfum and Acqua di Giò Profondo Lights ...

Colonia Leather Eau de Cologne Concentrée Acqua di Parma

What if you specialize in classic fresh citrus colognes and see that the world of perfumery has begun to orient itself towards amber-spicy tastes and create warm, sweet, and smoky perfumes made of leather, amber, and oud? Probably, you need to try to combine your specialization with the trends of the time, which is what 4711 and Johann Maria Farina did last century - and probably what the Acqua d...

Bergamotto di Calabria La Spugnatura Acqua di Parma vs Regular Bergamotto di Calabria

Bergamotto di Calabria La Spugnatura is a 2021 limited edition of Bergamotto di Calabria (2010) by Acqua di Parma. The difference between the two editions is in the special bergamot oil called Spugnatura, which was harvested by hand with a sea sponge. The brand also claims that the new eau de toilette was orchestrated anew, not just the bergamot oil replaced. I compared the two versions and confi...

Giorgio Armani Acqua & Nude Night Ecstasy Lacquers Reviews & Swatches

Acqua (100) Giorgio Armani Acqua (100) Ecstasy Lacquer ($38.00 for 0.2 oz.) has a sheer, almost milky white base with flecks of micro-sparkle and finer pearl that looked like a mix of gold, pink, and white. It’s hard to imagine this was intended to be opaque, but the brand doesn’t distinguish this shade as sheer nor does the promotional swatch image reflect a sheerer shade–but if you like sheerer, sparkly gloss, the formula is stil...

Giorgio Armani #24, 31, 33 Eye Tints Reviews & Swatches (2020)

Nude Smoke (24) Giorgio Armani Nude Smoke (24) Eye Tint Liquid Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a medium peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had medium coverage that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage with a second layer. The texture was lightweight, thin, and flexible after it dried down (and it was fairly transfer- and crease-proof!), and it didn’t seem as watery as a lot of the other shades I tried from the ...

Acqua di Parma Yuzu – Bursting With Happiness

My reviews of Osmanthus and Camelia from the Acqua di Parma “Signatures of the Sun” collection highlighted their masterful balance and unique twists. Yuzu is no different, emphasising the tart and explosive power of a lesser-used citrus fruit.   Blueprint The brand describes their Yuzu as, “A sparkling and energising fragrance that combines the bittersweet notes of yuzu with vibrant and ...

Bath Body Works Atlantic Cologne – Moody and Melancholic Sea Foam Flowers

Tourists’ reactions to Venice flood

On the evening of Tuesday, November 12, the northeastern Italian city of Venice was extensively flooded following the highest tide the city has seen since 1966. Water levels reached 6.1 feet, causing around 85 percent of the city to be underwater. But as Venice was “on its knees” to quote Mayor Luigi Brugnaro, tourists gambled and snapped selfies in flooded St. Mark’s Square, seemingly apathetic to the destruction around them. The lagoon city of Venice is prone to flooding during high tides,...

Acqua di Giò Absolu Instinct Review

Armani was once a bold and visionary house, particularly on the men’s side; and then, suddenly, it wasn’t. Launches such as 1996’s Acqua di Giò and 2004’s Code anchored the direction of scent development for up to a decade after their release. The Armani Privé line debuted in the same year that Code was brought on the market; niche strands of mainstream fragrance brands are commonplace ...

Too Many Events! Venice gears up for La Biennale Architecture 2018

FT Live: Alberto Galassi (Ferretti), Edoardo Caovilla (René Caovilla), Marcantonio Brandolini D’Adda (Laguna B) & Mickey Riad (Fortuny) (Venice, Italy) These days, Venice, once the Queen of the Adriatic, is a small, provincial town of a little more than 50,000 residents with millions of global visitors. It's an odd mix. Toss the contemporary world of La Biennale into Venice's Gothic and Renaissance backdrop, and you get a surreal experience. In the lead-up to La Biennale Architecture Exh...

Original vs Flanker: Armani's Acqua di Gio Original, Profumo, Absolu pour Homme

I may be in the minority here, but I never wore Armani's Acqua di Gio pour Homme. I fell in love with the original women's Acqua di Gio from 1995 by Alberto Morillas upon its launch but there was something in his 1996 men's version that stuck out like a sore thumb and I just couldn't warm to it. Perhaps it was the nutmeg, my fragrant cryptonite (along with vetiver and anise/licorice); I usually...
