I got to test out Si Passione which is Giorgio Armani's new line of fragrance and an updated version of the last Si in 2013. I love the bright pop of red for the bottle. It reminds me of nail polish but it actually is supposed to resemble a burst of red lipstick. Giorgio Armani states that, "Red is a sign of vitality, red is a signal of passion". The name is Yes Passion which means for every woman to just say yes to release their inner passion and Giorgio Armani believes that it's empowered, feminine and free. This striking scent is combined with black currant nectar, combined with a sparkling, joyful pear. The new S? Passione fragrance combines intense vanilla with the blooms of rose, heliotrope and jasmine to create a sensual, fruity floral scent, reflective of the simultaneous delicacy and strength of femininity. At the very heart of S? Passione is cedarwood and the modern ambery-woody Orcanox, giving a maturity and character, mirroring a boldness of emotion, evoking true passion. Compared to the previous Si this fragrance is compared to the notes of patchouli in the previous line which this one does not have. I love the bold and noticeable scent but my only problem was that it doesn't last very long. I have the 3.4fl of bottle which I don't think I'd ever purchase in the future because the scent didn't last very long when wearing. I tried wearing it at home doing nothing and then going out wearing it to see if perhaps the longevity would conspire longer but there was no difference. However something pretty cool you can have if you purchase online I'd have the bottle engraved. I'm not sure if that costs more or comes with purchase. I got to test this product for free and my words are all my own.
I received this bottle complimentary through Influenster. My initial reaction to spraying the perfume is how well the rose and vanilla scents compliment one another. This first reaction is somewhat diluted, unfortunately, by the perfume's lack of staying power. Almost immediately after I spray, I can no longer smell the perfume on me. All 3 of my daily perfumes are at different price points and I've never had an issue with their scent lingering. I also used to wear Armani Code years ago, which stayed with me the entire day so I was disappointed when Si Passione did not wear the same. Beautiful bottle, lovely scent, just wish that it lasted longer - especially considering the price point.

I wanted this perfume for a while, but I was hesitant about buying it since I had never smelled it. Let me tell you, it's so much better than I originally thought. It's sweet but only the right amount of sweet. It's sensual and warm and my husband also enjoys it!
Megan from North Dakota
I've never smelt anything like it! It smells kind of like pear but i think it's the perfect floral fruity smell.

I get so many compliments when I wear this perfume. I smelled it and immediately bought it to replace my last perfume.
ScottsdaleAZ from Scottsdale
I bought this perfume when it was on sale. It smells very good which is great, but it only lasts 3 hours max.
Definitely not worth the price on sale or full price.

Got this as a sample, wife loves it and I do too; ended up getting a bigger bottle, along with another I thought we would like; seems more me than her. All of the scents we've gotten via Armani have been great. There's a common base note among them, which if you like that you'll probably like the subtleties among the rest. Among those, more samples, to which, she's said she also likes.

This perfume smells FABULOUS!! It smells sweet yet not fruity. Powerful but not strong or overwhelming. It will definitely catch the attention of others.
Annie Marie from Charleston, SC
This has been my go to scent! Lasts on for a few hours and softens into something that has a sensual softness especially in warm weathers. My clothes that have this scent on smells great even after days. I'm a late middle aged lady so this is age appropriate for me- it's not giving fruity like I liked when I was in my twenties- I mean this respectfully.

I ordered this for myself while doing some shopping for my girlfriends. It was a completely blind purchase.
I am still on the fence about this one albeit it's no fault of the fragrance. To say that I am picky with fragrances would be an astronomically massive understatement.
I've spent decades mastering the art of layering and creating a true signature scent for myself. I love balancing feminine and masculine; creating a scent that is not only alluring enough to get compliments - but rather so mysterious and addicting that they apologize because they keep coming back to take in one more inhalation of my aroma. THAT GOOD!
My absolute GO-TO layering fragrances are Les Élixirs. I own their entire collection (including this months release).
This fragrance will require a dating phase, lol. It reminds me of YSL's Libre in that it's not the easiest to layer because you have so many notes to try to pair up without smelling like you went fragrance shopping at Saks and decided to sample everything…on your body.
I will say that for the price point, it has impressive longevity. I always appreciate that type of quality!
I have no doubts this new addition to my collection will grow on me. I just need to invest the time to figure out what works best with the perfume and my body. So if you're very selective like I am; don't be disheartened and give this a chance to work for ya!

I got it for my everyday use and I love it. it does not last long enough but that's okay, you need to re-spray after 4 hours. no allergies and very subtle scent

I work at a convenience store and one of my customers walked by wearing this perfume and it smelled amazing so I asked her the name and she told me it was this one, and of course after thinking about it for a week I bought it and I am absolutely in love with it.

Alexandra from Denver, CO
YES - super sexy scent. I typically like fresh and clean scents, but this still smells soooo good to me. This is my go-to date-night scent. I'm almost done with the bottle and here to buy another!

The scent does not last long for the price.
