    Default Any Armani Code fans ?

    This frag has received a lot of bashing on basenotes.

    I bought the 125 ml EDT and received an extra 20 ml travel bottle for free.

    I wear code now after I just got home from the gym - I love this frag.
    It's discrete like Chanel Bleu, kind of a boring and too safe frag with a very boring linear presentation.

    But I love this subtle discrete scent, which on my skin is very potent. It oozes class and style and calmness.

    I feel relaxed while wearing it, it's a warm cozy scent. On me I easily get 8-10 hours, but not a big projection.
    Very close to the skin, sort of like Chanel Bleu - but instead of citrus I get melon, bergamot and tonka bean.

    I have to admit I've been bashing Armani frags - but this one grows on me. It suits my skin

    I have to say that I HIGHLY enjoy wearing this basic designer scent - I will give it 9.5/10 - I love it that much !

    Will always have this in my collection as long as they make it....

    It's a nice one. Nothing spectacular, but it's respectable.

    I like it, but the longevity is poor on my skin.

    I enjoy it every now and then... i bought it when I started this "hobby" and I don't regret it. Won't restock once it's over though.
    ... And do me a favor - don't disturb my friend. He's dead tired.

    Welcome to the Bwahahaha! era...

    I really enjoy Code but it's too common and I've worn it for several years, so it got boring to me. No longer my signature scent but still a favorite.

    The top is a blast of spice, which I personally don't like too much, but the drydown is great: Safe, warm, little spicy and sweet... very inviting and pleasant scent.

    Yeah the projection and longevity isn't beastly, but I don't mind. Good enough for me as a daily, cold weather frag that won't offend anyone. Thumbs up from me.

    I use to love it in high school, now not so much. It's a good fragrance, but not great IMO. I prefer La Nuit as well.

    I remember buying this for like 80 bucks for the biggest size. Now when I see it in stores, I cant believe how expensive this stuff is!

    It is definitely nice. It is just overpriced and overplayed but I still use my bottle of it.

    I have a 1 oz of it that should probably last me my whole life, but I do enjoy the times I try it.

    I do love it, but I don't wear it that often. I love the tonka / guaiac / floral / musk combination. And it's surprisingly good in summer, too.

    Dang - I need to break this one out again!
