    Default I think I'm losing my marbles... confused by Armani Code

    Yesterday I was bored. I was out at work and decided to wander by a local perfume store.

    For no other reason I could think of, I decided to revisit Armani Code and gave the back of my right hand a couple of spritzes to see if my original opinion that it was "something that was okay but I would never buy it" still stood.

    Well, the news was that it was still something I wouldn't buy.

    But what caused the confusion was that in the drydown I caught a familiar powdery floral accord (and yes it was the male version), of... wait for it... Iris.

    Now this threw me a definite curve ball. But yes, there it was, a strong Iris accord. So much so it put me in mind of Hiris, which is probably my favourite Iris scent.

    But Iris isn't listed as a note in the Code pyramid.

    Have I finally completely lost it completely????

    I get a good dose of iris in Diamonds. I've not sniffed Code in a while but I do recall something that smells a bit iris-like, yes.

    I'm confused why anyone would buy it

    Maybe it's that olive flower note? I don't know what olive flower smells like, though.

    I really like Code, but get no iris whatsoever.
