Giorgio Armani Sì Intense

I was sent this perfume to review.  All opinions are mine alone.

This year, I got into perfume quite a bit more.  It all started with a sampler I bought from Sephora during Christmas time in 2015, and it quickly went down hill (or up hill, depending on your perspective).

Recently, I was sent the new Giorgio Armani Sì Intense by Influenster.  If you've never heard of Influenster, it's a social media influence program.  When you sign up for an account and complete badges, or activities, you can be sent different products in exchange for a review.  I've been participating in their program for a few years, and I have enjoyed it!  I've been exposed to different products I wouldn't have bought myself and have found some of my favorite products this way.

I am obsessive with reading up on the notes of perfumes.  The Giorgio Armani Sì Intense has notes of blackcurrent-vanilla, freesia, and chypre.  Chypre is basically a fancy word for woody citrus.  I'm a little picky about woody scents, but when it's combined with citrus it smells wonderful.  This also has more perfume oil in it than a normal perfume, so it's literally intense.  I love a hint of scent, so one spritz is perfect for me.  I can still smell it at the end of the day, so it definitely lasts a long time.

As far as purchasing a full size, this was sent to me for review.  In all honesty, I am a huge fan of rollerballs.  They're portable, I don't have to worry about using up all of the perfume before it goes off, and I don't feel guilty buying different scents.  I like to have a variety.  Since it is rare for me to purchase a bottle of perfume, I can't say that I would purchase this one.  But, I really wouldn't purchase a bottle of my favorite perfumes, anyways.  That being said, I would definitely buy a rollerball of this perfume.  It smells so good, and I can't stop sniffing it!

And that, my friends, is a true indicator of a wonderful perfume.

Let me know your thoughts on this perfume?  I definitely feel like this is an autumnal/winter scent. Do you switch up your perfumes for the seasons?
