Giorgio Armani hasn’t just built a clothing empire, worthy of his Roman roots, no indeed, his reign for over forty years stretches across kingdoms including Armani Exchange to Armani Privee, right the way through to Armani Nevè (Skiwear) to Armani Casa (home) and of course Armani Timepieces to Armani fragrances.
One of the most popular and successful amongst his stable of scents is Giorgio Armani CODE, which has recently added a new member to the family in the shape of Code Colonia. A new male fragrance which offers a combination of citrus tones including bergamot, mandarin and pink peppercorns, with aromatic middle notes of clary sage that blend with floral notes and resonate with salicylate orange blossom. The trail ends on a more fleshy base note with woody, amber and tonkanotes. Recommended to be worn during the day for a clean and fresh aroma.
If your looking for a scent best worn at Night maybe opt for the original Code, a fresh light and harmonious lemon with delicate bergamot evoking the crystalline elegance of a cologne. Olive flower, with its strangely attractive aromatic aniseed notes. Pure, smooth and radiant, like a good quality red wine, it’s inextricably linked with Latin origins. A combination of tobacco, fine leather and rare woods blend with tonka bean, coumarin and heliotrope. This much loved scent captivates with its deep, warm, soothing qualities.
Lastly, this alluring, powerful and fiery male scent. It involves the classic Code base of tonka bean, but with Profumo it has been amplified by a sensual woody-Amberg accord and notes of burnt styrax wood. It contains a burst of head notes with green mandarin essence, crisp green apples and cardamom. The freshness continues with aromatic lavender notes and nutmeg essence tainted by the purity of orange blossom at its heart. Each element in the fragrance is warmed by tonka bean with its accents of tobacco, before being enveloped in a woody-Ambery accord. The supple leather notes of the styrax essence meld with a hint of praline sweetness making it prefect for the transition from evening into night.
