    Default Armani Code or Rochas Man?

    Which do you guys prefer? I know that these two aren't exactly close, but I think they're similar enough to pick only one as a favorite.

    I am vanilla lover so Rochas Man is obvious choice. I had both but sold Black Code - it is nice and versatile but doesnt suit my personality.

    If you like vanilla more go with the Rochas (sweet, gourmand fragrance, has a cappuccino vibe, but even if you are not a coffee lover you might enjoy, I know I fit that bill). Armani Code has more of a leathery, sensual vibe. Neither is a projection/longevity monster, so it really boils down to which style you like more. Also one thing to point out, Rochas will probably get you standing out more than Code (Armani's crazy popular let's just say, while Rochas is completely unknown in the U.S.A. ), and Rochas is also much, much cheaper. Personally, I like Rochas Man more.

    Both are actually pretty good, but by comparison, Rochas definitely

    I tried Givenchy Play Intense a while ago, and that's supposedly got a major coffee note in it. I didn't really smell that much coffee (which is a good thing), is Rochas Man like that? I don't really want to smell like I spilled a cappuccino.

    Hmm, I mean you get the coffee note in Rochas irregardless. Vanilla's there, but the coffee note you cannot miss. Raspberries are also detectable, but the coffee vibe is present no doubt. Rochas does have that sweet, cappuccino vibe. If that ain't your thing, Rochas might not be for you. But then again like I said. I hate the smell of normal coffee, and am not a coffee drinker at all, yet Rochas is very charming to me (despite me detecting some coffee notes in it).

    +1. That's a great choice. Easily can be gotten for cheaper that Armani Code as well.

    I honestly prefer the smell of Code slightly, but in terms of versatility, I prefer Rochas.

    I think Rochas Man is better than Code, but having just purchased a bottle of Givenchy Play Intense I like it much better than either one of these. It's like A*men without the negatives, Rochas Man without the synthetic sweetness, a sexier version of Code and Attitude, and easier to wear then New Haarlem.

    Between the Code and Rochas, I'd pick the latter.

    I think Rochas is a better scent but personally, I don't like smelling like coffee and Danish cookies all day. It's nice enough and very wallet-friendly, but if gourmands aren't your thing, pass. Code is a little more versatile imho, but I think its popularity has spawned enough smell-a-likes that I would seek an alternative, but that's just my thoughts. Rochas is cheap enough to not regret a purchase, Code not so much.
