Armani Code Review
The first time I sniffed Armani Code was at the workplace. One of my co-workers who loves fragrance had just purchased a bottle. Sometimes when work gets to be too much I walk over to her desk and demand to smell her wrist. In fact I have ordered her to wear it everyday. She thinks I am joking.
The notes are orange flower absolute, ginger from China, Jasmine Sambac from the Sambaquita flower from India, Madagascan vanilla, Honey, Sandalwood and Miel de Lavande.
The Mediterranean top-so bright and spontaneous.
All the freshness of the barely -opened flower is expressed by the cheerful sparkle of orange zest.
Two kinds of orange peel
one from the Ivory coast
and the other from italian oranges
join forces to express that easy, light-hearted Italian refinement.
The citrus opening is very subtle. It almost seems like a blood orange note instead of a regular citrus. I am a sucker for a blood orange note.
The finale-the sweet embrace of a unforgettable trail.
The familiar, inimitable sweetness of the orange blossom, so velvety that it becomes addictive.
All intensified by the incredibly soft embrace of madagascan vanilla and by a touch of honey.
The sillage is what makes this fragrance. It lasts for a full work day and the drydown settles down into such a comforting "close to the skin" scent.
It is a winner.
Let me know what you think of this fragrance in the comments.
