The Armani Code captures the intimacy and excitement of an unforgettable new experience. Was created by Carlos Benaim, Dominique Ropion, and Olivier Poldge in the spring of 2006 as a ‘sexy, femme fatale kind of perfume – a woman’s mysterious code of seduction is revealed.
The fragrance ad evokes Megan Fox as the new face of Armani Code, the 21st-century woman: independent, ambitious, driven, sexy, confident. She seduces with her confidence, She seduces with her look. Her eyes are making the promise of intimacy. Promises, she loves to break!
Armani Code Qualities
The scent is based on the harmony of orange blossoms, spicy notes of ginger and sandalwood. It opens with a fruity accord of orange blossom, spicy ginger, and fresh pear to be followed by sweet vanilla, honey and a bit of sandalwood. The dry-down is exquisite, and first, you might feel a strong orange scent. The jasmine in this fragrance is most intriguing because instead of being soft, pretty and feminine, it is the opposite becoming daring and sexy. The honey and vanilla notes in the dry-down are also creating a scent that is truly breathtaking. It ends up in a sweet and warm undertone that really makes it pleasant. I was afraid the vanilla and honey would make it to sweet, but it is not that sugary sweet scent but rather creamy with the presence of citrus.
- Top Notes: Bitter Orange, Italian Orange, Sambac Jasmine
- Heart: Orange Blossom Absolute
- Base Notes: Vanilla, Honey
Armani Code Perfume will make you feel good, accentuate your good mood and attract compliments from others. It is a combination of mystery and freshness addressed to the sensual women. It is sensual in a sweet and innocent way, but it’s not quite a perfect head-turner and strong scent. It’s perfect evening nights when you want to attract attention. I think the more you wear it, the best you discover if it suits you.
The bottle and the commercial suits the fragrance perfectly. It is colored in deep, lacy, blue, which emphasizes the mystery and intensity of the composition. Is more proper for the winter season or maybe as a late fall scent. Medium sillage and persistence somehow distract attention from the above advantages.
However, if I were to describe this scent, I would say it is light, clean and sophisticated, while still being interesting. It has a nice balance between musk and flowers. If you are attracted by subtle, volatile, delicate agreements, you might consider Armani Code too strong.
