    Default New Fragrance: Armani Code Ultimate

    From fragrantica.com:

    Amani prepared the launch of a new men's fragrance from the Code line for fall 2012, which bears the name of Armani Code Ultimate. The new edition aims to be more intense, sensual and luxurious than its predecessor.

    The composition is signed by Antoine Maisondieu of Givaudan. Fresh and energetic cocktail of grapefruit, mandarin and star anise welcomes you at the opening. Cedar, cypress and olive blossom in the heart and are accentuated with heliotrope accords. The base notes include guaiac wood, tonka bean and vanilla.

    The fragrance is available as 50 and 75 ml Eau de Toilette.

    I love the original code and feel it has more than enough projection and longevity. "More intense" actually sounds a little scary to me .. but I will try it.

    We all know nothing intense every comes from Armani. Look at the Aqua Di Gio Essenza and that was considered an intense parfume!

    I will try. All the code flankers have been underwhelming thus far though, so it's not promising. However, I have to say that from that notes list I can't help but getting a bit excited - star anis, cypress, guaiac wood and tonka bean! A bit scared of the heliotrope and vanilla though.. I have a feeling this one may turn out to be too sweet.

    I've actually been confusing them on the counter at Macy's. I think there were 3 kinds together just recently.

    Makes me wonder if this is just "EDP without using the deadly 'parfum' word that gives men cooties".

    I heard the final and best Code flanker will be called Armani Code Emporio Diamonds Emeralds Rubies Gold Platinum Profit Margin Tax Shelter Remix Intense for Him, so I'm just going to wait for that one, if this rumor is true.

    Thing is, Maisondeau is an awesome perfumer (Hinoki, 7 de Loewe, Burberry London, Monocle Laurel, some Etat's...). And the original Code + Heliotrope? That does sound good. More mens scents with heliotrope is a good thing, and I'm surprised to see many of the veterans knocking this so soon. Armani may tend to play it safe, but most of their scents are damn polished, and, quite simply, damn pleasant.

    The only good designer that's been made as of late is Spicebomb, the rest have been garbage. I'm not writing this off but when I try it I won't have high hopes.

    Do you know who reworked it for the Sport flanker? I'm really starting to fall for that one. All the other Sport flankers this year are so anemic, but that one actually has some decent projection and a very pleasant, powdery citrus accord.

    Hey RP,

    Jacques Cavallier signed his name to sport. I revisited that not too long ago and whatever chemical bothered me before no longer does. It's actually a pretty interesting scent and I'm going to have to get myself a sample one of these days.

    Agree! I enjoy most of their offerings and wear and enjoy the much hated on Mania quite often...well done cedar and musk perfect for button down and work.
