#SaySi With Giorgio Armani And Win!

giorgio armani si

Hello again beauties, and sorry for the little confusion about the #SaySi competition that I had to take down last week. Working with international brands is sometimes tricky, as everything comes from overseas, and due to some information that was embargoed, I had to change things up. But no stress, the competition is here, and all of your previous entries have been saved! 🙂 The new chapter of #SaySi is about to be revealed, and todays post is a little bit of a teaser, plus a sneak peak of the new campaign and advert. As Giorgio puts it himself, “Sì is my tribute to modern femininity, an irresistible combination of grace, strength of mind and independence.” Let me tell you a little bit more about each chapter of the Si fragrances, and what they are all about!

giorgio armani si

 

The original Si Eau De Parfum launched in 2013, and I am sure it has become a favorite amongst many women. The perfume has grown on me immensely, and I would even go as far as to say it is in my Top 5 Favourite Perfumes (and I have a lot of perfumes!). The original Si is a sweet gourmand fragrance, with top notes of Italian Bergamot and Tangerine, as well as Freesia (the flower pictured in these photos!). It has lovely middle floral notes of Egyptian Jasmine, Neroli and Rose, and the perfume is finished off with Patchouli and Vanilla Absolou. Sounds divine doesn’t it?

Si to Femininity, Si to Strength, Si to Freedom!

RSP is R920 for 30 ml,R1290 for 50 ml and R1730 for 100 ml.

The Si Eau De Parfum Intense was added to the collection in 2014, and who wouldn’t love that black bottle on their nightstand? With Si Intense, the modern woman says intensively yes to her most vibrant emotions: seduction, love and passion. The perfume is enriched with Blackcurrant Elixir and enveloping Wood and Balm accords. This one is my favorite out of all 3, because while it is very strong and powerful, it is still very gentle and it lasts for hours! When I walk into a room while having Si Intense on, I immediately feel more powerful and chic; it is truly such a stunning fragrance!

Si to Audacity, Si to Passion, Si to Myself!

RSP is R995 for 50 ml and R1395 for 100 ml

The Si Eau De Toilette was launched this year and I reviewed this fragrance here. It is very light and fresh, perfect for spring and summer! The bottle is a pretty pastel pink, which will appeal to the girly girl and to the young woman.

Si to Simplicity, Si to Enjoying Life and Si to Independence!

The face of this delicious fragrance is my personal style icon, Cate Blanchett. I think she is the epitome of elegance and grace, but her red carpet choices always have a bit of a risk factor in them. Cate isn’t afraid to #SaySi to daring and bold fashion choices, yet her style is still very feminine. How gorgeous is she in this little teaser for the new campaign? All will be revealed this Sunday!:)

So what do I #SaySi to in my life? Well with my recent doubts and anxiety about turning 25, as I open this new chapter of my life, I am Saying Si to living without fears and doubts. I don’t know what is going to happen in my 25th year of life, it might be disastrous, but it might be my best year yet. I am Saying Si to love, for my boyfriend, my friends and my family. I am Saying Si to travelling, and expanding my horizons. I am Saying Si to education as I prepare to study further. I am Saying Si to life, and to living it fearlessly.

giorgio armani si

Now it’s your turn! Tell me what you #SaySi to, and you can win an incredible hamper of all 3 of the Si fragrances! That’s right- that the Si Eau De Toilette, the Si Eau De Parfum, and the Si Intense. This hamper is so good, I wouldn’t mind winning it myself! Comment here with your answer and for an additional entry you can tweet me (@irinadoman) with the hashtag #SaySi and what you are Saying Si to in your life. The competition will run until this Sunday when all will be revealed, and I will personally pick a winner!:)

Sì to passion, Sì to yourself, Sì to love, Sì to life, Sì to freedom…

    I bought a fashion magazine and there was a 3ml free sample of Si Giorgio Armani, I fell in love with the fragrance. I bought myself a bottle, but unfortunately it went missing from my luggage when I travelled to Cape Town last year.

    I am saying si to love, I’ve been disappointed with love so many times but I’m ready to try again. I’m saying si to travelling and more trips with the girls, si to education as I’ve registered with UCT for an online course in line with my career objectives. Si to saving money for that new car, si to kindness, si to smiling more and so to making new friends 🙂

    As a full time working wife and mother of two, I say Si to putting myself first for a change. Not that I will be neglecting hubby or the kiddies, I am just going to stop putting my wants and needs at the bottom of my to-do-list. I am important too and deserve to feel like a queen every now and then.

    “You can explore the universe looking for somebody who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and you will not find that person anywhere.”

    i must say that when I spritzed Si Eau de Parfum Intense my olfactory senses were catapulted to the heavens! This enigmatic parfum embodies a powerful woman who is like a teabag and gets stronger the more she is placed in hot water! I am a Say Si woman as I have worn my gumboots throughout the thorny path of my life. I have said Si whenever things went haywire.So yes, the powerful word Si is my new mantra in life! My Say Si attitude has certainly paid off as I truly believe that I am living out my wildest dreams.

    Yes, I have been through major financial heartache when a business venture that I had attempted failed. Yes, my heart felt as if it had broken into a million pieces when my granny died earlier this year. The list of human disasters goes on BUT I have survived through it all through self realisation & appreciating my self worth. I have realised that behind the mother, the wife, the student, the daughter etc I need to cherish ‘ME…So winning this amazing treat from your fab blog, will be a wonderful addition to my new journey of self discovery in this play called life where ‘I’ matter the most.

    And believe it or not, I will not be saving my parfum for a special occasion, for me life is a celebration and to start every miraculous day with this scent will be a dream come true. This diva plans to #SaySi myself every single day!

    P.S Have loved you on Facebook and Twitter. Tweeted about this sensational competition too:)

    i recently said yes to cutting out all animal + animal products out of my diet and lifestyle (including leather – eek! heart pulpitations!!) and although it’s brought so much judgement, side eyes, and questions (from my friends and family more than anyone else), it’s one of the best decisions i have made to date! i’ve really learnt how to live a kind and compassionate life, and even though there is such a stigma around cutting out animals, i really don’t care. i’m not going to force my way of life onto anyone, but i know that personally, it was the thing i needed in my life at that moment, and it’s opened my eyes to things i would usually overlook, and completely changed the way i live life – in the best way!

    the biggest thing I’ve ever said yes to was my husband – wait it’s not cliche – i changed my whole entire life for a man and this man changed his whole entire life for me. right now, we may not be physically together, but our love is stronger than anyone i’ve ever known. he opened my mind up to a life so different to everything else, and he gives me that void i’m missing. saying yes, making a life with him, has hands down been the best decision i have ever made.

    i would more than love to add the Sí fragrances to my fragrance tray – i have a small cough big obsessed with fragrances and feel that you get to pick and choose what fragrance you want to wear everyday depending on your mood. and when your outfit is almost lacking something, it’s usually that fragrance 😉

    I am Saying Si to being a strong woman despite what life throws at me along the way. I am grateful for what life I have and being a single Mom to the most amazing daughter. Watching my daughter grow into this amazing young woman has been my greatest accomplishment in life. As she now spreads her wings to live out her own life and dreams, I embrace this new chapter of my life in my 50’s, I call it my Renaissance Period as I will be on my own new journey of revival, in rediscovering myself, in finding new interests to be passionate about. So, I Say Si to continuing to live my life with love, passion, fierceness, gratitude, authenticity,acceptance, tolerance, compassion, courage and soulfulness.

    I’m so much more positive for doing so, and where I am in my life at this point in time, is right for me! I’m more confident, more loved because of it and exude beams of happiness.

    I recently said “Si” to babysitting my three young nephews (plus my own two!!) so that my sister and her hubby could enjoy a romantic stay alone in a beautiful hotel for the first time in many years. It was such a treat for them and so worth it for me when I saw the love and romance between them on their return. They couldn’t stop saying thank you to me, aaaaaaw. Si is good! So where you can, don’t hesitate to #SaySi 🙂

    • Reply Janet September 12, 2015 at 6:17 pm

      What do I say “Si” to in my life? I say “Si” to not holding a grudge when someone wrongs me…. I let it go. This, I’ve learnt, is freedom. I say “Si” when my friend needs a shoulder to cry on, my mother needs a hug or my dog looks at me with sad eyes until I roll on the grass with him…. When I ask myself “am I content, have I got immeasurable blessings to be thankful for?”…. my answer is always Si, Yes! Yebo! Ja! I’m so happy to be me, I love who I am without being haughty and proud. I’m grateful for the life I’ve been given and the journey I’m on. I love the skin I’m in, and even though it’s not perfect, it’s me. One of a kind. It’s good to be alive… My outlook on life is one of “Si”! 🙂

    #SaySi My fiance and I are high school sweethearts and have been together since I was 17. He recently proposed atop Inanda mountain after an exhilirating helicopter ride, and made me the happiest girl alive. We first decided to wait a few years before we got married as we wanted a beautiful wedding and knew we couldn’t afford it straight away…

    I decided to #SaySi to marrying the love of my life! We are both so excited to say I do and I don’t think money fears should get in our way. I’ve decided to spend more carefully and save more each month for our dream wedding on 2 January 2016. By just saying yes and going for it, making our dream come true went from impossible to more than possible!

    We have also always wanted to travel together so I will #SaySi to a trip to Thailand by the end of next year! I know if we stay motivated and put our hearts into it, we will make it happen.

    Reflecting on my hopes and fears today has left me feeling so motivated and inspired. On my wedding day, I’d love to use the Si fragrance, feel like a princess and say yes to the man of my dreams and all the hopes of my heart.
