Honest reviews



Shi, the fragrance by noted designer Alfred Sung, is reminiscent of his total design philosophy which is classically modern, whether it be clothing, watches or small leather goods. This fragrance is subtle, fresh with a blend of Water Lily and Fig Leaves. Complementing the initial impression is a composition of Orange Blossom and Frangipani, resulting in a soft femininescent.As one would expect the packaging, both bottle and box, is elegant simplicity. Utilizing three of nature’s elements, wood, water, and metal, Sung has created a beautiful design. The bottle, a perfectly rounded glass rests on a dark wood base. On top of the cap is the Chinese symbol for water. Viewed as a whole, the bottle reminds one of a perfect drop of water.The box is a pale blue with the Chinese water symbol on the top panel.This fragrance would certainly be appropriate for day or evening.

Soft and feminine fragrance, stays on all day.

I use Chanel Allure, DKNY Be Delicious, Michael Kors Michael regularly and Shi is fast becming my regular scent too. I needed a fragrance that worked well for day wear and would not over-power people around me yet stayed on all day. Shi works perfectly – it’s a modern and clean scent – floral with musky undertones, very soft and feminine but strong enough to linger all day. Just to give you an idea of similar “blue” fragrances there is D&G; Light Blue which is great for day wear but a little too light for me, and also Davidoff’s Cool water which is fresh but a little less floral than Shi. Shi works perfectly for me, and I love the composition, it has a very calming effect on me.Top Notes- Water Lily, Fig Leaves.Middle Notes – Orange Blossom, Fragipani.Base Notes – Water Musks, Silver BirchThe perfume bottle shaped like a droplet of water balances all aspects of yin very well – metal, wood and water in its design. It even has a dark wood base to rest it on. The companion perfume is Hei (the yang elements) which is for men. This perfume is available for a great price here on Amazon, it’s more expensive everywhere else I’ve seen it.

1st time i used it about 5 years ago. i didn’t come back to this fragrance since then. I’ve ordered it now and i’m realizing that this smell is one those you are not tired of – it’s fresh,wears out nicely a little sweet, and has a little bitter side. Not too heavy, not too strong, but still noticeable and very bold, recognizable, wears out nicely – after a long day you still smell it.For the price Amazon offered it is a must have.

Something new

My husband likes musky scents and I don’t. I like citrus scents and mild floral scents (estee lauder pleasures, cool waters, apple dkny, hermes, tiffany, clinique happy). I was hesitant buying this perfume but since my husband likes musky scent I decided to give it a try. It has a very light musky scent that seems to blend nicely with the floral scents. It has a very light casual scent which i like. Not too overwhelming. It’s ok … Something new for me.

Love, love, love, love, love it!

One time in my past, I wore Shi almost exclusively for nearly 6 months. It is an inoffensive, light floral that is relatively long-lasting. The water lily gives it a translucent, watery quality. The orange blossom does not dominate. The base wears really well. All the “like” thumbs-up ratings are a true indication of just how nice Shi is overall: Shi appeals to almost anyone but probably won’t push anyone to extremes (love or hate).I eventually tired of Shi and really struggled to finish the bottle. I replaced it with Omnia Crystalline, which is along the same lines but better imo, but I tired of Crystalline too. In a certain way, I regret not having a bottle of Shi (or, Crystalline) around anymore. Both are easygoing scents that are great for summer, the office, casual outings, and the outdoors.Large bottles of Shi are pretty darn cheap. A bottle is a low-risk purchase at current prices – an easy blind buy that’s also highly gift-able.

Smells great, my wife really liked it but she says it doesn’t have staying power. It may not be the real thing, who knows.

Light & pleasant

This is a wonderful, light scent for the office, or day time, and it lasts longer than many of the more expensive brands. I would recommend either Alfred Sung Shi, or Alfred Sung Forever to any of my friends!

Make him fall in love!

I am a perfume Junkie! I think I use most of my money on perfumes. With that said this is one of my favorite perfumes. Its not overpowering, its romantic, sweet, floral draws people (men) to you! At least that has been my experience. I discovered it in 2007 and almost finished with my 5th bottle. That is how much I love it! Will continue buying forever!

This has been my signature scent for a few years. It’s light enough to wear during the day and it still feels special at night. I get compliments on it all the time. I hope I don’t ever have to stop using it!!

Judi White Cloud, MI

very nice

This is one of my favorite perfumes, and I’ve purchased it twice now. It smells just as nice as the more expensive brands, and the price is unbelievable. It has a nice, light, airy smell- for those of us who don’t like heavy fragrances. I will buy it again when I run out.

I have a feeling it’s not the original. I saw this at Ulta and the scent was alot different and definitely held on longer than this bottle. It was a gift for my mom and she tells me that the scent does not last as long. I tried it on my and I can definitely see that. I’m kind of disapointed.
