About Emporio Armani He

Launched simultaneously with the feminine counterpart 'Emporio Armani She'. They are both packaged in a metal tube, with a rubber spray mechanism.The packaging was inspired by the mobile phone: something that can be taken anywhere and fairly robust. The female bottle has an indent, and the male bottle has a kind of protusion, which fit together.

Reviews of Emporio Armani He

Emporio Armani He is a "neo-classic" (like a sort of new-age powerhouse) but all at once modernly urban-metropolitan (minimalistic in its formal/polite style) boise juice which, despite not properly standing out for uniqueness, is surely remarkable for versatility and elegant effectiveness (likewise a well tailored Armani's suit). There is a general warm/fresh (casual) piquancy/earthiness mastering this woodsy aroma which I really like, despite a lingering (especially in the first stage of run) cedary-lemony undertone which I surely don't crave for. A beautiful accord of yuzu, cardamom and woods, somewhat fresh but finally warm, spicy, rooty, cedary and virile. Yuzu and cedarwood (supported by further woody notes) provide a sort of "lemony/pencil-shavings" undertone but the main vibe is spicy, ambery, rooty patchouli-veined, herbal, sporty-soapy and more than vaguely piquant. A fancy-virile juice, a sort of cleaned-purified (in a more minimal modern way) classic powerhouse/aromatic fougere formula. Fresh vetiver is perfectly combined with "lemony" yuzu, fluidy-peppery cardamom (heady) and rough patchouli in order to perform a quite dark "presencefully" metrosexual accord for a night of protagonist down the best down-town fluorescent music clubs. There is a faint cadary/lemony/rosey (rosewood?) warm creaminess (as a sort of woody undertone) thankfully weak and marginal. I detect warm synthetic ambergris and vague oakmoss back in the bottom as well. Dynamic virile (anyway different in composition) casual scents as Aramis Cool Blend, Givenchy Gentleman Only and Boss Botled Night jump on mind (more conceptually than effectively in their own aromas). This juice could basically match the same "assumedly sexy" effect supposedly provided by far more hyped juices a la Creed Aventus but is pratically ignored on the net, in spite of deserving more consideration imo. One of the best from Armani on my skin.

This is a real classic for sure,smelled many fragrances lately and all my previous buys are still best and this is one of them.Just very smooth and very sensual....

Awesome scent.
Its a shame it doesn't last very long. But then again I think its subtly is what makes it special.

Perfect for house wear when you have guests over.
You won't get much notice wearing it outside, beyond a couple of hours.

LOVE IT.......just a shame about the longevity. ......if it had that it would have been a signature scent. The same can be said about Armani Code.

I received a sample off this several years ago and I was head over heals about it. It drove me crazy that I couldn't have it. Now I got this for my birthday and it sucks. The bouquet seems mellow and sad and it doesn't smell neither fresh nor interesting.

I'm disappointed.

I don't recognise any of the official notes in Emporio Armani He. That's a first.

To me, it's a very understated oriental with violets, wood and musk. However, at times it behaves very badly and reveals a synthetic side of its personality that has been pointed out by other reviewers as well. In such moments it gives off clouds of the chemical in hairspray as well as an ants-like (sic) smell that I do not care for at all.

Without the the chemicals it would have been superb.
