    Default New Emporio Armani Stronger

    Saw that Emporio Armani was releasing a new flanker of Stronger With You, this time Intensly. Looks like they dropped the melon, chesnut, and cedar and added in suede. I really liked the first one, but ended up not keeping it as I felt it was redundant with Code Profumo. They were pretty similar side by side. This really interests me, as the scent profile has changed a bit, and hopefully they keep the performance up to par.

    Then, they scrapped the Because It's You with its dumb name, and introduced the new pairing In Love With You. Looks like they kept the raspberry and rose from the last scent, but went with wormwood, cherry, jasmine, patchouli. I think the new name is pretty good. Because It's You seemed to maybe have some kind of weird connotation for the #metoo movement, or just seemed a bit wrong to me. I think In Love With You could end up being a fragrance that a lot of boyfriends buy for their significant others, and then buy the other for themselves to go with it. I think the idea was good originally, but the bad name (and fragrance in my opinion) ended the idea before it got legs. I know I'm excited to try them.

    Thoughts?
    Itís tragic to think that heroic manís great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    I recently posted on this in the new scents thread. Looking forward to trying this one as I like the original.

    Wont go out of my way but if i do stumble on it will definayely give it a go.

    Am currently using the Original one in Shower Gel variation which is quite nice.

    I do think that Armani is in need of a very strong new release that isnt a Flanker of a Flanker.

    I like the original a lot but believe an "Intense" could be a move in the wrong direction. One of the things I like about SWY is that it has a fresh, uplifting component that helps balance all the tonka that's used in the base. It catches the air nicely stays buoyant.

    If they make an intense version, adding suede and probably even more, heavier doses of tonka, the scent could become too thick/heavy and it may no longer have that fresh, uplifted quality.
