In today’s post I’ll be reviewing the Armani New Way perfume, a fairly new addition to the Armani perfume family. I’m not the kind of a person that falls for the hype easily, I much rather wait a bit and see if something sticks, or eventually goes away, that’s why I don’t tend to review new perfumes. New Way is still quite popular these days, so let’s see if it lived up to its hype.
You may know Armani better as a luxury fashion brand, but they do have some fairly popular perfumes as well. The first one that comes to mind is Aqua Di Gioia, mainly because I still remember the iconic commercial with Emily Didonato and her stunning blue eyes. Aqua Di Gioia is more of an aromatic, citrusy perfume, but it still gained lots of popularity a few years back. They also released a male version, Aqua Di Goi, with an iconic model, David Gandy. I must say, they pick their models wisely. After the success of these perfumes they released floral and evening versions as well. A popular fragrance from the Armani is also the iconic Armani Code, a classic among the perfumes. It comes in a male and female version, as well as other variations.
Released in 2020, this perfume rose to fame almost immediately. I remember how all the influencers promoted it, as well as the face of the perfume herself, Adria Arjona. I wasn’t really interested at the time, as sweet perfumes weren’t my thing back then, but I remember my mum bringing home a sample and falling in love with it. It sort of reminds me of the Velvet Vanilla by Mancera, and a little bit of the iconic Ariana Grande Cloud as well (I hope I can get my hands on it soon, it’s always sold out everywhere!).
Armani My Way is definitely a white floral scent, with hints of citruses and lots of vanilla.
Top notes include orange blossom and bergamot, which gives it that floral-citrusy smell. Middle notes are tuberose and Indian jasmine, again, white floral notes all the way. Base notes are Madagascar vanilla, white musk and Virginian cedar. Vanilla is definitely very present in this perfume, it’s what gives it that sweetness. The musk and cedar make the perfume more cashmere-like and soften it, and the floral notes add a bit of the dimension to the scent.
Overall I feel like it’s a great everyday scent for everyone that’s a fan of sweet perfumes. Great for the younger generation, but also for more mature users that like to smell sweet. It’s a perfect scent for Libras, if I get into astrology for a bit – it definitely smells like something a fashionable person that likes lots of pastel colors would wear.
