This is a simple scent.
Rather straightforward, not complex but yet it does not seem like "just another scent"
Avon seems to put out some scents that are nice but fall short on projection, lately I've revisited Avon's Turn 4XT along with Christian Lacroix's Noir too.
Aromadisiac, like the aforementioned scents sits close to the skin and is gone within 6-7 hours.
No leather to my nose either, it is figgy but it's a dark fruit, something made for cooler weather.
That darkness is hard to describe, I sorta get a powder-like vibe in the background.
That powdery aroma is the same kind I get from Avon's Mesmerize for Men and Black Suede Leather.
Nothing aphrodisiac about this, in fact it doesn't smell 'human'. It is straight fire and spices, very dry. If it was more wet and piney, it would be a perfect suitable substitute for Wazamba from Parfum D'Empire, a niche house.
I have said it before, and I will say it again...a lot of AVON fragrances can sing the niche tune. This is not the greatest example, but it is one noe the less.
too heavy for my taste, i think it only smells like patchoulli, but is ok...
Armani's Code must be the most influential fragrance in the masculine realm of the past decade, perhaps second only to Armani's other best seller, Acqua Di Gio. A bargain outfit such as Avon might be expected to jump on the bandwagon with their own renditions of popular fragrances (and they have). Even higher profile marques such as Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren seem to spend more time retreading existing offerings than developing anything new or exciting, so we can't just pick on the budget lines.
From it's opaque dark bottle to its hokey name, Aromadisiac seems to be yet another Code spinoff. If you love Code but want something cheaper, this might be an acceptable option. As it is, I'm not especially enamored with the original so the downmarket doppelganger doesn't impress me. The longevity is fine but long-lasting ho-hum is still ho-hum.
A patchouli smelling, spicy kind of dark alcoholic deodorant with a dominant note of fig, mediocre projection and lack of longevity and complexity. It's absolutely linear and boring. I don't detect the presence of leather despite is listed somewhere.

Aromadisiac for Him is one of the better offerings from Avon. A heavy, dark fragrance with a prominent buttery fig note over top a base of patchouli, sandalwood, and leather. It bears resemblance to Armani Code for Men. Lasts longer than a lot of Avon fragrances, as well. Don't be afraid to let your Avon-savvy aunt buy you this one, it's a real treat for the money!
