By far my favourite signature fragrance.
Was lucky enough to find this online , 50ml bottle for less than $70.00AUD
I have strong memories of this about 5 years ago, thrilled to have it back in my collection.
Top fragrance!! Why this was discontinued and Armani Code still in production is beyond me...
Quite a class act, really (really!) similar to several niche scents playing the “dark spicy-patchouli card”. The thickness, the dark refinement, the velvety texture, it’s quite all there. And apparently, back then the “extreme” flanker of a fragrance still had some meaning: this smells in fact clearly connected to Armani Attitude, but as you may expect, drifting towards a darker, bolder version of it. The key notes – patchouli and dusty amber - are still there, but they’re just all “amplified” and made denser and gloomier, mostly thanks to a clever use of spices, something “nutty” I can’t detect more precisely (slightly balmy, like the balmy woody notes used in Escada Magnetism for Men) and a louder presence of musk. Attitude was smoother and smokier, this is richer, more “challenging” in a way, but also more sophisticated for me – just in a darker way, less versatile, less office-safe, maybe a bit harder to pull off. The “night” version of Attitude, shortly, made to please that “night” crowd instead of coworkers and daytime contacts. A sort of more mainstream version of Donna Karan Black Cashmere and similar fragrances, even with a touch of Norma Kamali’s metallic incense, and somehow “Lutensian” too thanks to something resinous and thick resembling to fir balsam, and to that balmy-nutty note. Crap longevity with a nearly-only ambery drydown, but worthy a try.
An Alluring Oriental!It smells more Deep,Elegant and Irresistible than

Longevity?+6 hours on my skin.
This would have to be the biggest piece of garbage I have in my collection but nowhere near the cheapest. I paid about $100 for this as a blind buy when I was on holidays and drunk. Worst $100 I ever spent!!!! This stuff is just trash, way too powdery. Powdery powdery powdery! Enough said!!
Smooth and creamy all the way: from the fresh-ish citrus that is counterbalanced nicely with a soft but confident cardamom, through the coffee-ambery drydown, to the very pleasant patchouli base. The base also has a wood note, and the patchouli is very round and smooth. Whilst silage and projection are good, the longevity is astounding at over eleven hours. Not a complex scent, not many ingredients and a mildy palpable synthetic undertone, but overall well done, and performing excellently. Sometimes simplicity can be convincing.
