My second post dedicated to my favourite perfumes! Check the first one here.
So, meet my Diamonds perfume by Emporio Armani.
I bought this perfume back in 2007, maybe some months later than it came out. It had so much hype around it and it was talked about in every magazine I read. Why the hype? Well, you’ll surely remember Beyoncè being the face of this perfume and the commercial of her performance.
This time I didn’t buy the perfume because of being a fan of its representative (even though I know how deeply talented is Miss Beyoncè), but simply because of the scent.
An audacious and sexy fusion of scents that reflect the strong, modern woman. Featuring the freshness of raspberry and lychee, and invigorated with the pure femininity of rose and the sensual rhythm of patchouli and amber. A unique indulgence for your senses.
Less sweater than the Ginvenchy one, I wear this during the day, but I find it very suitable for fun nights out. I definitely smell the “sexy” in it, if it’s something that has a scent. 😄 It’s not strong at all, though. Which is something I tend to look for daytime perfumes.
I still have enough of it to last maybe another year, but I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing it, even if I like it quite a lot.
If you are interested, I paid for it between 37 and 38€.

Let’s start with this series of my Favourite Perfumes!
I’m not a big fan of changing perfumes. I generally stick with one and use it until the very last drop and then look for another one. Bear in mind that a bottle of perfume (I generally buy the 30ml size) lasts (for me) at least four or five years. Yeah, I don’t wear perfume everyday, just on special occasions or at night. Mostly because in the morning I always forget to spray it on. 😛
Today I’ll introduce you to my very first perfume I ever bought.
I’m talking of the Very Irresistible by Givenchy, whose representative was (and still is, I guess) the stunning Liv Tyler.
The reasons why I discovered this perfume are still very clear to me, and they make me smile.
It was back in 2001-2003, in The Lord of the Rings movies era. I was completely in love with Arwen and Liv Tyler, her eyes, her skin, her stunning long hair. She was my girl crush, back then. And still, now she own a piece of my heart! 😉 So, reading magazines it was pretty common to find pictures like this one:
(I used to have this picture of my wall too. Crazy, I know.)
So, I started going to the drugstore to find this perfume and from the moment I tried it I simply fell in love. I had to have it!
I guess I bought it as a Christmas or birthday present, I don’t remember. I used to wear it quite rarely because I was too afraid of running out of it! 😉
Anyway, some drops are still there, I was too scared of actually finishing it and I admit that sometimes I go back and breathe in that bottle just to remember those ten years ago’s feelings. Lovely. It literally brings so many pleasant memories. Oh, to be young! ;P
I fell in love with it also because of the stunning package. Back in 2001/2002 there weren’t any brilliant perfumes packages, this one stole my heart.
Since I don’t have any ability of describing smells, here’s what the perfume says:
An homage to Givenchy‘s early days when fashion and cinema were intertwined, Very Irrésistible Givenchy, unites the elegant tradition of French style with the energy and pop-culture pizzazz of American film. Bursting with roses and infused with star anise, and verbena leaf, Very Irrésistible Givenchy is a fresh departure from the traditional floral fragrance.
Notes: Centifolia Rose, Peony Rose, Fantasia Rose, Passion Rose, Emotion Rose, Verbena Leaf, Star Anise.
Style: Vibrant. Brilliant. Captivating.
No other words could describe this perfume better. I can sense the “early days” scent in it. Maybe I don’t agree much on the “vibrant” and “brilliant” style of it: to me it’s way softer and sweeter. Definitely a very girly perfume that suits daytime as well as romantic night dates.
On a side note, I used to receive so many compliments on it! It’s the only perfume I own that people asked about. It was loved by everybody. ❤
Can’t say anything more. I’ll leave you to my pictures!
