Latest Reviews of Armani Code Profumo

I've had a lot of fragrances just like this one, some better, some worse. This is pretty mediocre, all things considered, at a high-end designer price. I think the primary difference is that while others of all price ranges (Abercrombie & Fitch First Instinct Together, Paco Rabanne 1 Million come to mind) tend to be brighter and louder, Armani Code Profumo is more laid-back and chilled out. For some this hits the sweet (pun intended) spot. It's a pass for me.

Powdery tonka, hints of aromatic lavender and spicy (somewhat peppery-cinnamonic) amber provide a piquant "dusty" masculine trait while a sort of citric caramellous fruitinness elicits that sort of bubblegum sweetness of which several reviewers are talking about. Drydown smells slightly powdery/sugary (with a synth mandarine-tone) with hints of kind of "pencil-shavings" woods, vanilla and leather. Strong longevity and projection on my skin. A dynamic modern juice which could work either as signature office choice or as a night out olfactory solution. Yes, an exceedingly synthetic laboratory-creation, finally somewhat linear and in line with many spicy/sweet woody-leathery modern creations (Mont Blanc Legend Night or CH Men Privé Carolina Herrera to quote several).

The best winter gourmand in existence.

Not sure why people rate based on how sweet & heavy a scent is- you know once winter comes your scents should be sweet to punch through the cold right? Shouldn't your rating be based on using it the season its intended for?

With that said this is an incredibly balanced, sophisticated, rich, luxurious, intoxicating, sweet, balanced, unique smell for the colder weather.

Think of the original code DNA mixed with chocolate powdered doughnuts. Think Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male 1995 but instead of vanilla swap it out with chocolate. That is Armani Code Profumo!

I got a big 200ml bottle because this can virtually be used anywhere when it's cold; casual, work, dates, clubbing, it's that versatile. It's not loud like Ultra Male but not tame (and boring) like the original code.

It's fresh, chill, sophisticated, sexy, sweet, alluring, attention grabbing all in one. I am shocked this dna can pull off every occasion at once.

A true masterpiece!

Armani Code with a hefty dose of bubble gum. Uninspiring, and boring.

I understand that if this is not your kind of just isn't,but I do love it. I feel like it's aimed at people that don't like the excessive sweetness of fragrances like One Million but don't want an excessively mature fragrance either, just somewhere in between, it smells amazing to me and I still got to find a woman that doesn't compliment this fragrance.

Code Profumo is not the sophisticated, mature fragrance I was expecting (fragrance ads are just about the least informative thing in the world). It's a powdery clubbing scent for sure. Not as screechy as 1Million or other big names, but it's not something I've enjoyed either. Tonka is the note that leads the show, but everything I usually love about it is masked by powder and splenda. Pretty samey to be honest.

Powdery Tonka sweet. This has that bubble gum feeling, filled out a bit with leather and pitched up with a background of mandarin. Smells good, I like it. Performance is good. Strong in longevity and projection, but somehow it feels kind of soft in texture. Would work well as a signature, set it and forget it fragrance.

The opening is a powdery-sweet, dusty tonka bean, very vanilla+chocolate candy. This is quite similar to the original Code but feels smoother and better blended. Also, the drydown isn't as harsh and goes more woody-sweet and feels more modern.

Strong projection for the first 5-6 hours and then hangs around for 8-9 hours. Feels best for cooler weather, a bit too sweet and heavy.

Watched a review and decided to jump on this one. Did not regret the purchase. A great scent for outdoors or in large areas if you are trying to garner attention. It smells very rich and blended. I would put this in the same as Victor and Rolf Spicebomb extreme family.

Still has the Code DNA, but the addition of the tonka bean creates a distinct Dr. Pepper vibe. It sounds odd I know but I absolutely love it.

It also sticks aroundfor an impressive length of time.

Reminds me of Dr Pepper or Cherry Coke.

Not bad but nothing remarkable.
