My Review of Giorgio Armani Code
I’ve had a half-used bottle of Armani Code for ages. I used it very dedicatedly for some time, but then moved onto other new fragrances. This was when I wasn’t that much interested in fragrances. I liked it, but never got round to really appreciate it for what it was. Now I tried it again, after few days of wearing Elie Saab Le Parfum, and the resemblance is striking for me. The bitter orange and orange blossom opening, heart of jasmine, and honey in the base. Lovely.
I find Armani Code more complex and prettier than Elie Saab Le Parfum, which soon becomes powdery on me, and does not evolve that well for the base notes to develop. It remains more of an orange blossom powder. But code, it is rich, deep and warm, the honey makes it delicious.
Armani Code opens with orange notes, citric and fresh and uplifting. Jasmine soon makes an entry, making it very sensual. The honey and ginger combine with jasmine and sandalwood to make it sweet , slightly spicy and deep. I don’t get much vanilla here. Code is very sexy and glamorous. Elie is classier as compared to this. This is the hot babe in a short skirt, whereas Elie is when she decides to dress up and wear pearls for a formal event.
The sillage is good, but longevity is wanting. It lasts for 4-5 hours, and needs reapplication post that. Bottle of Armani Code is sleek and quite gorgeous.
