Product Description

Armani Code by Giorgio Armani for Men Eau De Toilette Spray was released in 2004.

Developed by master perfumers Antoine Maisondieu, Antoine Lie and Clement Gavarry, the brand brings out a very rich mixture of scents coming from apple, cumin, lavender, citrus and woods.

The top notes for this fragrance include bergamot and lemon followed by middle notes that make use of star anise, olive blossom and guaiac wood. For the base notes, it has leather, tobacco and tonka bean.

Based from list of the components they use, I can say that they have the notes that I like.

The packaging of the Armani Code looks very cool and sophisticated.

Now, let’s move on to its scent quality and over-all composition.

Composition: When I first opened the bottle, I could already smell a fresh, masculine and clean scent as if you have just finished taking the shower.

The scent itself has just the right balance with its tobacco, black licorice and leathery scent which I am sure that most men would really like.

This is a fun cologne that anyone can wear.

I find the scent of this cologne to be very versatile. The right blend of the different mixtures of elements adds to mystery to this scent.

A clean and very fresh scent, this cologne will surely add more appeal.

This is the kind of scent you need if you want to feel really confident and sexy. It has this really appealing scent that is not way over the top.

When to Wear It: What is nice with Armani Code is that you can wear it anytime you want.

Although it is much more suitable as a nighttime fragrance, you wouldn’t have any problem if you want to wear it during daytime.

It is not too overpowering that might come out as too strong for other people.

Since it has citrus notes, you can wear it during winter, spring and fall. And since it has an amazing scent, you can use it in any occasion.

Whether you have to attend a formal business meeting or you are going out with friends and attend a concert at night, you can’t go wrong with Armani Code.

Longevity: How about its longevity? I’ve heard some are not so impressed with its longevity.

But personality I find it to have a lasting fragrance.

After I sprayed in the morning, I could still smell the scent on my clothes the next day.

A few sprays can last long. In fact, you only need 2 strong sprays.


Over-all, the Armani Code by Giorgio Armani is truly a great choice.

It has this clean, fresh and very appealing scent that will surely draw people to you and will give you lots of compliments.

There are so many reasons why this scent is widely popular and this is one of my top favorites.

I feel confident that I smell really good with this fragrance.

What I like about it is that is has that really natural and clean scent that everyone would like.

It is my to-go to cologne that I can wear in the morning to nighttime or anywhere I go. I don’t have to worry because I know this scent will last.

The only downside I can think of is that it is pricey. But then again, if you are eyeing for a signature fragrance, this is surely worth the price.
