    Question Armani Code, something similar?

    Goodafternoon, Im a new member at basenotes, i've been reading reviews and forumthreads for weeks now. My favorite of alltime is Armani Code, but after 5 bottles of this stuff I want something new, well actually something new but similar. I want something very close to Armani Code, maybe even 90% similar to it. I just don't want to buy the same perfume again, eventhough i love the scent.(I already have Joop Jump that is kind of similar to it) So any suggestions? (not Le Male please :P)

    givenchy PI is very similar, but a bit sweeter. And then u got armani diamonds for men, thats code with white musk instead of wood.

    But of all code-like frags, code is the best one.

    Carolina Herrerra's 212 Sexy Man-- Almost identical to me.

    Emporio Armani Diamonds has such a similar effect to Code that its almost the same fragrance......but its not. They are very different, yet the same. The bitterish cocoa in Diamonds is an awesome contrast to the sweetness of Code.
    I REALLY want this scent...my only hangup is that the scent at times reminds me of the scent a snake leaves on your hands when you pick it up and it leaves its "musk" on you that it uses to deter predators. But it is done in a strangely perfumey way that really works.

    I would say Burberry Brit For Men.A plus is that it's longer-lasting too (I used to own both at a time).
    It's never too late to mend.

    The difference between the two is that, ZI doesn't have that soft creamy thin combination in its base, its a minimalistic scnet, very thin and well rounded one. I use ZI for day wear and Code for evenings and nights.

    ZegnaIntenso, although Intenso is better than code, imo. Also, Givenchy Pi Neo shares a number of similarities.

    I second John Varvatos, however Bod Body Spray's "Black" is extremely similar to Code.

    Armand Basi homme. Definitely created in the same vein as Armani Code.

    I completely disagree with "john varvatos" and "Escada Magnetism". They don't have anything in common with CODE IMO.

    DITTO! Re-tested 212 SM last weekend and immediately thought "this is so VERY close to Armani Code".
