The Armani range of fragrances has been one of my favourites for years, some I still have are not even available to buy anymore! Armani Diamonds is possibly my best of all the Armani range, when I got to try two variations to the original Diamonds range, I couldn’t wait to see what they were like!
Armani Diamonds rocks is an aquatic, fresh take on the popular Diamonds fragrance, it’s an invigorating woody and citrus fragrance. The clear glacial bottle cut from a block of ice and includes the recognisable Armani eagle.
The scent bursts open with top notes of Italian bergamot, black pepper and green apple
The heart notes include marine notes, geranium and violet extract
It has base notes of vetiver, guaiac wood and cedarwood
For me, Diamonds Rocks is a fresher and more vibrant version of the original Diamonds scent. The marine notes really stand out amongst the top and heart notes. The longevity of the scent is moderate It’s freshness makes it an ideal fragrance for daytime wear for the summer months ahead!
Diamonds Club is inspired by the neon lights and the atmosphere of the club and music scene. I love the bold bright blue bottle that
The fragrance opens with top notes of cardamon and sage
The heart notes include geranium, lavender and aquatic tones
It finishes with base notes include tonka bean and amber
The scent kicks in with a fresh zesty opening but then drys down to leave long lasting base notes. For me personally, this scent doesn’t have any similarities of the original scent, it’s a much darker, oriental and alluring fragrance. The main notes of sweet cardamon and the slightly bitter geranium compliment each other well. It has good longevity and is well suited to wear for evenings out and date night!
The two fragrances are suited for different occasions, if I had to choose a favourite out of the two, it would have to be the fresher, cooler smelling Diamonds Rocks. The RRP for both fragrances is £40 for the 50ml version and are available to purchase from The Fragrance Shop
