Reviews of Armani Code Sport

If you take into consideration that a 'sport' scent is not going to last for days nor will it have sillage or project crazily, then you will be ok with the less than stellar performance you get out of this.

While it lasts however, you get a fresh spicy energetic opening with the Code DNA present but not taking center stage. Great for a short event (couple of hours) outdoors with sun. Not a summer scent, not a stiff dressy jus either (that original Code can be sometimes) but somewhere in between.

Typical "sport" scent vibe, yet a bit more spicy, tangy and pungent than others in the genre, i.e. Allure Homme Sport Cologne, Dior Homme Sport. The Armani Code dna is there in tiny sniglets, but not in any obvious way.

Armani Code Sport is light, citrus, spicy, and slightly "green" herbal in quality - hinting towards classic vetiver scents. Great for warmer weather and more active occasions. Decent flanker that is pleasant and does the job you'd expect of a "sport" scent.

Armani Code Sport is a very light and simple sport fragrance. Despite grapefruit not appearing in the Mid/Heartnotes, it's the main focus of this scent and is actually not bad.

To experience Armani Code Sport, try the following: chew a stick of spearmint gum for half an hour, then set aside. Cut a grapefruit in half and remove the fruit, also setting aside. Put the chewed gum into the hollowed out grapefruit and smell from 6 inches away. This is Armani Code Sport for the first 5 to 30 minutes. After the 30 minute mark, begin adding little squares of mahogany every 10 minutes, smelling in between.

This part isn't unpleasant- in fact, it smells pretty damn good. The grapefruit is tart and well done (despite, as I said, not being listed!) and the mint isn't too synthetic as to be annoying.

The tragic flaw in ACS is when it projects from a heated body, which I can only describe with the following recipe: 1 table spoon of grapefruit juice, another tablespoon of white vinegar, and half a tablespoon of lemon juice.

Not pleasant at all; it's sour and ruins what could have been a really nice little scent that actually did a masculine grapefruit well.

I'm giving it a Neutral because it really is an okay hanging-around-the-house scent. Light, but wearable, just not when sweating... which is it's purpose.

Ultra sparkling teenage fresh Orange juice

And again the horrible name Sport entered the game.

Well lets turn 180 and make a warmy cozy suede evening scent (Armani Code) into a whole another fragrance (summer day scent) which has nothing to do with the original.

My conclusion : if you wanna smell like fresh oranges peel of skin with a hint of mint?
Buy this ultra casual freshness.

You dont make a statement wearing this.

Long lasting and great sillage and thats a Pro most of this kind of frags are gone in 2-3 hours.

If you want something more "special"buy something like Clinique Happy.

Not worth its pricebut its not bad

Pros: Masterful longevity and huge sillage
Cons: 13 in a dozen scent"

Nice Generic Sporty Fragrance

I bought the 4.2 oz. bottle because it was the only size available at Macy's at the time.

First: This does NOT smell anything like anything (else) in the Armani Code branch.

This is a very nice mint and citrus fragrance that lasts a long time on my skin.
It seems to be best used in casual situations and I have worn it to scout meetings, on Saturdays and now at work.

The projection is fair and the sillage is close, but anyone coming within range will probably be pleased.

I bought this because I like a lot of Armani fragrances and wanted to pick up a sporty fragrance.

The SA at Macy's said it was specially formulated to project differently on each wearer depending on body chemistry. I thought that was an obvious effect of most fragrances, however this one is supposed to be something a-little-more-special-er (I guess).

It does remind me of Versace pour Homme but sweeter and less synthetic.

I will replenish this one if/when it runs out even though the price is high for this type of fragrance.

It can be worn by anyone of any age but might be best suited for warmer weather.

Pros: Smells good / Lasts a long time
Cons: Not unique"

Waste of $

I purchased this thinking it was going to be a sporty Armani Black Code. I was very wrong. Probably one of my worst blind buys. The opening is a lot of mint, although pleasant and sporty at first the scent disappears instantly. No matter how much you apply, it even gets a little cloying. Even after several multiple sprays 2-3 hours later no one could tell I had any cologne on. There's a lot of other scents worth your money, the smell alone isn't that great.

Pros: Nice mint opening
