    Default What are your favorites in the Armani Code line?

    Just curious as I just purchased the 3.7 Code Absolu from a Macy's.

    The one that I want to pick up soon is Colonia.. But Profumo is probably my favorite next to the original.

    Profumo is my favorite, but I have only sniffed the others at the store off a strip. Profumo is the only one I have a sample of, and have given a full wearing to. Admittedly, I am not the best one to ask, but wanted to toss in a vote for Profumo anyway.

    I like them all but prefer the original.

    1. Profumo
    2. Original
    3. Colonia
    4. A-List

    Have not tried the new Absolu, though I will if I ever see it. Fun fact, there have been 17 male flankers to the Armani Code line up in the 15 years since the original was released in 2004.
    Itís tragic to think that heroic manís great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    Sport. Both the original version and the reformulation we have now are very good. They're great for blisteringly hot weather.

    So I just received my Armani Code Absolu and I pretty much hate it. Really bummed and that's one of the first blind buys that I really disliked... To make a long story short, it smells almost exactly like Versace the Dreamer and I am totally not a fan of that scent one bit. So sadly it's going back, damn.

    I have only tried a few, but none were to write home about.

    Honestly, I think Cereus #14 is a perfected version of the original Code, with performance being 10x better, and now can be found on Ebay for about $30 shipped, if not less, i have no reason to ever own Armani Code again.

    Although I don't wear it, the original was the best.

    I remember buying this when it was called black code.
    It was fantastic. I've heard that they have kind of ruined it.
    Anyone agree?

    Really bummed about my Code Absolu purchase.... I been tryin to find the love and I just can't get there. It's strange because it doesn't really evolve much, it sorta is the same all throughout its phases. But theres to much of a baby powdery in there that I don't like.

    this maybe doesnt count becuse it isnt technically the "code" line, but the bottles are shaped the same so im rolling with it - armani mania

    Just got Colonia in the mail and I really like this. I like it a hell of a lot more than Absolu that's for sure
