    Didn't hear about it until now! Thanks I will have to try this when it comes out.
    I have: Davidoff Relax, Dior Homme Sport, Boss Selection, Azzaro Visit, and Creed MI (will provide # on bottle for verification) available.

    Looking for the following: DG The One, Himalaya, YSL L'Homme, John Varvatos (not vintage) Canali For Men or Paypal.

    the original is just fine and a summer version, IMO, is not needed.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    The original Armani Code pour homme is too powdery and stuffy tbh, so this sounds interesting!

    I like the original, so I'm looking forward to this one. Hope it's not a miss. Does it come out in the states first?

    i'm excited , but i think this might be an epic fail. i don't think it will level up against original code, i dunno, it seems like its just going to be another boring, aquatic summer that won't be different from the rest.

    I'm looking forward to Attitude Extreme more than this. Code Summer sounds like most "summer" versions ... just a weaker original.

    This sounds like it will be a confused scent to me, a powdery, oriental/spicy, citrus, aquatic? It seems like it's defiling what I like about Code too, by adding an aquatic note. I guess I'll have to reserve judgment until I smell it though, of course.

    Regardless I'm sure it'll sell brilliantly. Good on Armani for capitalizing on their products' popularity.

    Anything new on the men's version. A Macy's SA told me today that there is only a woman's version coming out. I told her that there was men's version coming out as well.

    Sounds like too many notes thrown in a kettle.

    Not so in my opinion. The original Armani code didn't have that many notes to start with.

    I tried both the mens and the women's versions of this about 4 days ago - it has been released here in Denmark.
    The bottle is attractive, but the scent didn't speak to me at all... then again, Im not a fan of the original.
    I think with regard to its construction, it follows the same formula as most "summer" flankers... turn up the citrus and herbaceous accords and turn down the darker, woodier basenotes. It will have its following, just as some of the Gaultier summer scents do, but its not my bag.

    The women's smells like Fleur du Male La Cologne.

    sweet bottle, redundant flanker. Id rather a Code Intense. code i feel has longevity issues, and summer flankers usually are lighter, which makes it worse, just my opinion. Not a fan of code but i like it enough

    So, I gather this will not be released here in the States, as none of the reps I've spoken to know anything about it. Has anyone heard anything to the contrary?

    totally not need, if you own the original. Very ugly bottle, with a very light and fresh smell. We've got too many useless fresh scents for summer out there, including this one.

    have smelled the masculine - its boring. more citrus and green, the other notes take backburner.

    Beats the original IMO. Hate the stuffy original. Although I must say this summer edition has a FUNKY spicey note I can't pin point the smell to. Almost BO like for a few minutes. Once it dies off it smells nice, no powder at all hardly.

    meh

    It's available in most major department stores in Canada. I smelled it the other day. It is very similar to the original, but of course, al ighter perhaps subdued version. I typically like stronger scents and intense/extreme version of flankers, but Armani Code is a pretty heavy scent with plenty of projection and longevity, so for lovers of that fragrance, I think a summer version is very suitable for the warmer months or even in the office.
