    Cool polo black or armani code?

    what do you think?
    i'm also open to other suggestions that are similar to those two. (basically a versatile, slightly sweet and woody going out fragrance)

    Instead of the disgusting Polo Black try Polo Explorer, but neither can hold a candle to Armani Code.

    I would definitely take Code over Polo Black, but consider L'Nuit De L'homme, you may enjoy it.

    very different scents: polo is more daytime , casual and cheerful scent , code is more for evenings and elegant
    so....It´s up to you

    For the options, Polo Black.

    But +1 for La Nuit de Lhomme

    Also worth trying Polo Double Black, which I prefer to Black, and Penhaligon's Endymion. Chanel Egoiste / GFT Sandalwood might also work.

    Nothing much wrong with PB - A lot of people on Basenotes will disagree. Code is subtle - maybe to subtle in that designer sense of being too scared to offend the masses. But it is fine.

    Armani Code would be my choice in this case

    Must just be me but I think Polo Black is a good fragrance. I know its not the most natural smelling thing I own, but it is fresh, lasts quite long time and it is extremely versatile. It has all the qualities I look for. Code's ok too just a little weak on my skin and too popular for me to fool with. I'll take PB.

    I wouldn't hand over $ for either (unless you can get them mega cheap) - there's better options for the money.

    I love Polo Black. Gotten quite a few compliments when ive worn it. Sweet smell, good sillage and last a while on my skin. Ive tried AC but like others have said its too weak for me, even tho it does smell nice.

    I'm in this camp.

    I own the Code, but I rarely wear it and need to just sell it. Nice frag, but does nothing at all for me.
    TOP 5

    2. Amouage Jubilation XXV
    3. Montale Red Vetyver
    4. Montale Aoud Lime

    Even though I just sold both from my collection, Code is much better.

    Definitely get Code over Polo Black

  21. #21

    Default Re: polo black or armani code?

    If you want this kind of fragrance there's more choices than just these two. There's Armani Code, Armani Attitude, Polo Black, Polo Double Black, Givenchy Play Intense, YSL La Nuit, and a couple of others. Code is nice, but it doesn't project, doesn't last, and is way over priced for what you get. Givenchy Play Intense and La Nuit are superior to Code in almost every way and cheaper.

    Default Re: polo black or armani code?

    I love Polo DOUBLE black. I'd buy a Polo before a Code, though I do love AC as well. I would just make sure I bought DB first. You can't go wrong here.

    I'd choose Polo Black. I dislike Code and find it very mundane and boring. I actually enjoy Polo Black quite a bit. It gets ripped here on Basenotes, but it's probably my favorite in the Polo lineup (I prefer it over Blue). I get a great fruity mango/orange over a woody base. Very nice & can work year round.

    I really like Polo Black. The iced mango note is amazing. Unfortunately the longevity is not too good. Armani Code is a great fragrance as well. It's very romantic and smooth. The anise keeps it from being too feminine. It's very similar to Midnight in Paris, but a little more masculine.
