Underground durability & sillage
In principle, the goodness of the fragrance itself is irrelevant, since you can't smell it anyway.

On my skin, the perfume is - without exaggeration! - after a maximum of 10 minutes, rather less, almost completely evaporated. Sillage is virtually non-existent, the fragrance no one will perceive.

I have tried several batches and always bought in reputable stationary perfumeries / tested.
Everywhere the same.

Conclusion: completely superfluous perfume, because you just do not smell it.

Surprisingly not bad
Although you see this fragrance in any gift set and might think this one would not be as good, the fragrance surprises on one level.
For a very low price you get a fresh fragrance with a certain depth, which gives it the sandalwood. Unfortunately, the price reflects the durability and sillage. Simply horrible. While durability after 2 hrs is already not the best, after 6 hrs you notice at most a small film, which I can only faintly perceive with effort. And even after 2 hours only weakly perceptible.
Sillage horrible, noticed from the fragrance hardly what, the environment also not.
Women find the fragrance okay, but nothing special.
Simply designed bottle, neither good nor bad.

All in all, a fragrance at most for the inconspicuous man or for sports, due to poor sillage and durability.

A classic but without durability
For men and their performance! ;-) Whether in your free time, at work or in the evening, - with its fine tart cedar wood note you make an impression and leave a pleasant scent...
Scent after shortest time hardly noticeable, is unfortunately quite disappointing

And off he goes...
The fragrance has a spicy depth, but still radiates a freshness. Actually a very elegant fragrance, which reflects its interesting content. If only there wasn't this ridiculous shelf life and silage. No sooner applied than it wants to leave again. So the top note fades away quickly and for a while it is dead quiet until the heart note of iris and nutmeg together with the bergamot of the top note reappears and tries to make up for all the disappointment. But no "Tada, I'm here", but rather a "Hello, do you smell me? A discreet breath, which soon after that kicks the bucket again. A pity, a great pity, it might have become something, but "lui" is unfortunately too shy. As for the bottle, I have to say that although it looks elegant at first glance, the spray head and the mechanics are only well-intentioned, but not well thought out, because the pressure is transmitted poorly or irregularly.

Spicy - fresh all-rounder. A classic!
"Emporio Armani He" is an eau de toilette that was launched on the market at the end of the 90s. Typical for the 90s were fresh, aquatic fragrances, often synthetically inspired by calone to convey the impression of sea and sea air. This scent here is also fresh, but in a completely different way than "Cool Water", "Aqua di Gio" etc.: It brings a great spice to the room! Freshly sprayed on, you first smell a mix of fruits and spices like cardamom (very dominant) and sage (rather subliminal). Later on, nutmeg, musk and cedar are added as typical male spice notes, and the sandalwood often used for aquatic plants is also easily noticeable. The fruits and the sandalwood give you a short freshness kick, the spices give you a cozy warmth and a great feeling of cleanliness. Really great combination!

Conclusion: This fragrance is a real all-rounder. Why? It can be worn at any time of the year and that's quite extraordinary. The fruits and sandalwood make "He" a fresh summer/spring scent, the spicy notes make it a winter/autumn scent. The only shortcoming is the durability and sillage. Unfortunately after 2h only perceptible at close range. Not suitable for compliments, unless you get very close. Instead you feel very comfortable, clean and can refresh yourself with this Eau de Toilette! By the way, the price/performance ratio is really good

My opinion after almost 15 years of use
Hello,

I have been using Lui for almost 15 years, you will definately feel confident using it because the fragrance is very masculine but unfortunately you will be the only one to sense it, while the sillage is somewhat average/good for the first couple hours it vanishes pretty quickly and by the end of the day you will not feel it anymore.

Whether you spray it in your clothes or in your neck it wears out too fast for such a good fragrance, this is what have always bothered me but because i really like the fragrance i kept using it to this day.

It has this jovial scent, more suited for younger adults and from my personal experience it is more noted by males than females, but regardless of that i use it because i like it and not to attract or impress other people specially females.

I have now moved on to other perfume which i like better but Lui will be part of my whole 20s and which i don't regret a bit.

Is there a replacement?
I just love that smell. The effect is just hypnotic on me. but every time I suffer from the fact that the fragrance has an incredibly bad shelf life and sillage... does anyone have a replacement product that comes very close to it, but is much more valuable in terms of silage and durability?

Pleasant feeling
What should I say that hasn't been said already? I love this scent, because it gives me such a pleasant feeling, not to say a feeling of security This is of course because of what one associates with it. Of course a fragrance that you might encounter quite often in everyday life, but hey what the heck? He'll definitely make it into my top 10. Armani crystallizes with me slowly but surely to `nem favourite ;)

Great smell, but without durability
I still knew this scent from when I was a child and my father wore it. That was in the early 2000s. I loved him as a small child, as a teenager too and today I am a young adult - at least on paper.

So I thought to myself, I would like to have my favourite scent from that time for my birthday, I could have bought it, but getting it from my father was somehow symbolic.

Now for the fragrance: I opened the package and took out the bottle that I always liked.
A few sprayers, until finally something comes and then came this smell, full of nostalgia, as if I was 6 or 7 again.
I still love the fragrance, it's fruity, woody, with a certain depth, I find it somehow ripe and masculine, very different from typical teen fragrances.

The problem with the scent, however, is that it is hardly noticeable after a short time, you really have to smell very close to it to notice anything. This is quite disappointing, especially because the scent is not so favourable that you just spray and spray and spray.

Unfortunately, the performance is simply bad and that makes the scent unnecessary, because who wants to spend money if he gets 10 minutes of scent for it and then has to spray again?

Fruit salad in a wooden bowl
...you'd think if you let yourself through the scent pyramid. The promise of summery freshness and lightness gets you in the right mood for your holiday in the south.
But be careful who books Last Minute!
Bargains can turn out to be pearls, but they can also end up as a horror trip.
Here a visit in the turquoise travel agency is advisable, in order to adjust expectations and conceptions against each other.
For me this fragrance is like a cheap package tour without big expectations and surprises. The camera can safely stay at home, there's not much to tell afterwards anyway

Expensive body spray with a beautiful scent. Same packaging, similar durability. Body spray is cheaper, though.
