I like the combination of white florals and vanilla but I will stick with Classique EDT and Organza which to me are more memorable and long lasting. A beautiful, aristocratic smell, turned into a chemical mess which lasts 1 hour and then is GONE. I The thing that set this apart for me when it came out was the almond note.The first edition is a treasure, is a liqueur, almost an essence. Nowadays (or what is still on the markets because it was discontinued this year) is a pale clone of the real Star it was before. And welcome all the craps YSL is producing nowadays. 10/10 I have an irrational fear the sometime VERY soon we will lose Cinema. The almond, vanilla, and amber were very smooth and sensual without being too sweet. Penelope Cruz wore this when she played Raimunda in Volver, and it suits the character perfectly.
RIP Cinema :( Armani Sensi is discontinued on the market. It is pleasant but in my opinion not worth the hype.Figure out what you need to learn there and learn it.If you don’t, an assortment of crappy jobs might be your thirty, forty and fiftysomething rite of passage as well. No, it is not a daytime perfume, it is a very big "hommage" perfume, not only for glamorous girls but also for girls who admire glamorous girls. It opens up mildly citrusy and with a soft bouquet of flowers, vanilla almonds and amber soon follows. Why oh why didn't I buy a bottle when it was readily available? However...in minutes the scent has almost vanished !!!There is a very urban and trench-coat feel to it, very old times feel to it, buy it and wear it now, in September, October and November- when the new releases hit the movie theaters (nobody goes to cinema during summer in my country). Since I have never smelled this before, I don't know what is missing. Does remind me of the long-gone Trouble..lighter..??? I was expecting a soft, citrusy, slightly gourmand vanilla-like maybe a 2000s version of Dior Poison Girl?
