Cate Blanchett was the second celebrity we were brushing shoulders with this week on the EVOKE beauty desk, just a day after watching Hailey Bieber take us through BareMinerals new Virtual Villa.

Hailey was keeping us informed on the latest skin and makeup launches at BareMinerals, Cate was part of the new Sì Intense EDP launch from Armani Beauty on Thursday afternoon.

And really, there is nothing we like more than hearing about, writing about, and wearing fragrances, so it was a real treat.

Cate, as you know, is the face behind the most modern and elegant scent that is now in the top five fragrances in Europe if not yet the whole world, an impressive ranking for a scent that’s really not that old. And this new one sounds right up our street.

The launch itself was quite an achievement, the 3 pm start time was to allow press from the States to take part, in all more than 200 journalists from 30 countries were all zoomed into the meeting that was taking place in Milan, while Cate Blanchett was coming in from her UK home.

Dressed in Armani red, Cate looked immaculately groomed and no doubt wearing her new Sì Intense eau de parfum, she really looks the part of the strong, independent, feminine woman that the fragrance represents.

Speaking about the new perfume, Cate said it’s her type of scent, the new Intense joins the other two in clear glass bottles, all three are Chypre, while the two Sì Passione fragrances are more Floral Musky scents.

The new Sì Intense has some extra notes to really ramp up its depth and fragrance trail. Blackcurrant nectar adds juiciness to the top notes, while Isparta Rose and Davana amplify the floral heart with an apricot and velvet feel.

In the dry down, the last lingering aroma of a scent, Armani has added a divine trio of vanilla, patchouli, and benzoin resin, this is a seriously sexy perfume. It will launch in March at Brown Thomas, Arnotts, and independent pharmacies nationwide, €90/50ml.

When asked what her beauty secret was towards the end of the huge zoom meeting, Cate Blanchett said she doesn’t ‘believe we should have beauty secrets’ but if she had to pick a mantra for beauty it would be to ‘look after your gut health, the Chinese say it’s your second brain’ so it makes sense that if you look after your gut health, all beauty will spring from this healthy approach. Sound advice, thanks Cate.
