Reviews of Armani Code Colonia

Armani's take on eau de cologne...Armani Code style!

Colonia is distinct enough from the original for it to stand on its own merits, although Code's dna is heavily apparent. ACC is a citrus aromatic with unmistakable sweetness typical of the entire Code line of flankers. It comes across as simpler, lighter, and crowd-friendly. ACC has the interesting amyl salicylate note (cut-grass, orchid-like quality), which along with spicy clary sage reinforces the fresh nature of ACC.

Tonka roasted sweetness plus exotic amberwood retain the signature Armani Code warmth with Colonia. This is where some may find the scent to be off-putting; I don't mind it, and overall I welcome that aspect of Code's dna.

Colonia appears to be poised as a definitely toned-down rethink of the original Code, along with warm weather friendly eau de cologne traits that make for a pleasant, fairly distinct experience from the original.

An OK flanker that really doesn't give you much beyond generic department store smell and quality. Name houses just don't take risks or produce anything innovative these days. Here's the proof. Pass for me.

Generic, but not bad. I could wear this one with no problem. Pretty safe for man or woman. Armani should have took a chance and changed up it's CODE! This SAFE is too easy to crack. Slightly aquatic in the initial spray, but it seems they tried to turn this into a woody fragrance that kind of fell to the side.6/10

A vaguely citrusy marshmallow toasted on a synthetic wood skewer. Not sure why nearly all of men's designers of late have to be cardamom aquatics or nightclub vanillas, but I'm over it. This one is just a less good version of Joop! Jump.

Nice refreshing opening and then the drydown reminds me of original Armani Code. Code is powdery to me so that's what I'm getting from Code Colonia. Just a sweet, clean, powdery scent.

Feels like a daytime scent, good for casual or business. Projection is decent.

This is TERRIBLE! I was expecting a classy restrained Colonia (cologne) style scent -- lemon and herbs.
This is a god-awful melange of sugar and vanilla and very brash, loud synthetic notes.
Absolutely NO redeeming features.
