I would describe Elle/Lui/She as a gentle, slightly powdery spice. Warm but fresh, not heavy. Hope that helps.

I've worn Armani Mania before, but fell back to my old tried and true favorite , Emporia She. It's not quite as overpowering as Mania, and the vanilla scent is much subtler. I definitely think Emporia She would be great alternative!

Emporio She is a revolutionary perfume, in my opinion, and the makers of this fragrances achieved a perfect balance between clean, sexy, sweet, and fruity. However, the only fragrance notes Emporio She and Mania share are cedar and musk. They're two completely different scents; each one has its unique characteristics. I personally find Emporio She more complex and soothing, whereas the Mania has too much Lily of the Valley for my taste. Any perfume containing the note Lily is a big no-no for me, I've noticed.
I hope this helps! I also suggest that you test both fragrances before you buy!

I think you should try it and I think you will love it. I only can tolerate a slight scent of vanilla. I do not like Mania. This is by far Armani's best.
