In the summer of 2006 I was searching for a new perfume, occasion on which I started browsing through the fresh launches. The result: I got to sample the new release (at that time!) called Emporio Remix for Him, from Giorgio Armani. Introduced in the same year, this creation is a tribute to fans of disco music and was presented together with its feminine counterpart Emporio Remix for Her.
From the beginning I should tell you that I was appalled by the appearance of the bottle (because I’m not a fan of the flashy, bling-bling style!), but if we take into account the aforementioned source of inspiration, its appearance could not have been different. The flask has a cylindrical shape and is made of an opaque midnight-blue shaded glass. The name Remix appears written in silver letters on the surface of the bottle.
Getting over the unpleasant surprise of the flask, I began to analyze the content. As if it was intended to be a revelation, Emporio Remix for Him was quite a pleasant aromatic fougere fragrance, in which the dominant note comes courtesy of licorice wood. Hence, the scent starts off with a balanced combination of star anise, basil and bergamot, in which the first note is also the most evident one. After no more than 20 minutes, the perfume reaches mid development, in which a blend of spices (nutmeg and cardamom) goes along with floral notes (Lily-of-the-valley) and fern accords. The closing of Emporio Remix for Him is the most pleasant phase, thanks to the accord of licorice wood, subdues by a mixture of vetiver and musk.
Overall, Emporio Remix for Him could be the fragrance of a young man who is not very pretentious and settles with something simple, yet belonging to a prominent perfumery house.
