Reviews of Emporio Armani Diamonds for Men

Armani Diamonds for men (2008) is one of the less-discussed men's releases from the current century, and this is perhaps predcitable, as it's not a masculine powerhouse or significantly provocative.

It is, however, versatile, useful, fun, easy-to-wear, and arguably pretty inoffensive. As Jim Quantrell, in his YouTube review, suggests, it smells a bit of strawberries and cream, and this exists, to me, over a bed of a general cologne sort of smell, with citrus, pepper, woods, and cacao all mixed in together, the result being sweet and fun yet sort of cologne-like, much in the way that Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche is sort of like a "lemon cream pie mixed with Allure cologne DNA," though admittedly the Armani is not done as well as the Chanel.

Performance is unimpressive but average for a year-round EDT, moderate projection and longevity.

I'm not certain how pricey it was upon initial release, but it's currently an affordable-enough $53 for the larger size of 75ml on FragranceNet. Not a bad blind buy, overall, though I generally discourage the practice.

I had a sample ... not to my taste

Very weak, floral, gentle citrus, mild spice, no idenity, trying not to upset anyone ...

No thanks

Perfect Scent for work/office! Strong citrus notes. It recalls Armani Code a little, warm and spicy, but it's more fresh and clean smelling. Love the spices, whatever they are. Good for night and day. No criticisms of this one. Not as strong and intoxicating as Armani Code, but that can be can be a good thing.

I'm rather surprised this was released in 2008 - it lacks the obnoxious, heavy, heady 'more-is-more' construction of most post millennial designers. I would have guessed this was a mid-late 90s release when the designers were more risk-averse and less willing to push the envelope.

The sichuan pepper is detectable when specifically looking for it - combining with bergamot to give a eastern-spiced G&T type opening. Sichuan pepper comes off as dry aromatic and slightly piquant. The mid notes come soon enough taking the easy and predictable route of vetiver/cedar for woody freshness. The cocoa-chocolatey note blends quite well, offering some sweet dimension along with the pleasant if synthetic ambroxan base.

Overall stereo-typically bland sweet-wet-clean-woods type designer scent. Far better options in this genre may include Platinum Egoiste, Herrera for men or Boss Bottled (even though released a decade plus before). This may be an acceptable night-out fragrance if you want to wear something different but smell essentially like the other young guys. Poor performance so heavy application advised. Too bland for everyday wear or regular rotation. No unique selling point, even the intriguing sichuan pepper is underdeveloped.

Finally: I revisited this after a testing of Sauvage screamed out Diamonds to me. Sauvage does have that 90s designer feel and the two scents do reportedly share a handful of notes - not least Sichuan pepper, vetiver, ambroxan

Stunning scent to compliment the female version.
Not sure why the negative/non positive reviews - this is a standout, standout in every sense of the word...
Rich texture that is stikingly pleasant and unforgettable.
Huge compliments.

The opening notes remind me of Armani Code. Later on it smells like european cigarettes and a barbershop. A fragrance for past generations.
