I'd echo marcoz' review below, albeit less enthusiastically. I feel like, objectively, this is a good scent. My S.O. has worn it from time to time and I've found it perfectly acceptable.
Last night though, I was transferring it into a new atomizer since the original one had broken. I spilled some on my hands and was just totally repulsed for hours after the fact. I think, like marcoz, the problem for me is the star anise. I generally enjoy the other listed notes. I even like most spicy notes. This one is a no go for me though.
Neutral review because I really dislike it up close (and suspect other anise opponents would feel the same), but my general impression of it when worn by someone else is that it's nice enough.
This is a tricky one for me. sometimes i love it, some times i don't care for it. I think this is because of the star anis note..i hate anis!!
but do't get me wrong, this is a very, very sexy, smooth sweet scent, with a fresh citrus opening, that women find very attractive.
that combination of citrus and sweetnes, is what makes this scent so smooth. most sweet scents can be cloying, and most citrus scents are week, so think of this as something in between.
This is a perfect date scent, for all seasons, specially at night. you will smell sexy and fresh at the same time.
Nice, commercial GA fragrance.
Opening notes are very nice, but that's about it for me.
Suits 18 to 23 year olds maybe..
Not a special fragrance, but more an everyday scent.
I love nearly ALL G.Armani - My least fav in the range
Why this has continued to be in production and ATTITUDE discontinued is a mystery to my liking.
I really liked it at the store,but when i finally bought it it was gone after a half hour,couldn't smell anything after that.So a real waste of money!!!
Armani Code or Code Black is a very nice fragrance of a common designer house theme using spiced citrus over woods and vanilla. This fragrance is noticeably popular with the younger men that I work with. In fact, they each seem to prefer it to all other scents about 4 of the 5 days in a work week.
Nothing wrong with wearing what you like, but why smell exactly like every other 30 yr old male in your office building?
Neutral for me because it's worn me out.
