Tonka bean as fast and concise leading actor
I already knew the fragrance from one or two acquaintances and was very excited when I happened to receive it as a sample with another order. First of all I have to say that I like the scent on others much better than on myself.

To the fragrance:
Immediately after spraying it on I was very positively surprised by the fresh tangerine / cardamom note. Unfortunately, this - for me very good smelling - fresh / citric beginning was completely gone very quickly and changed very quickly into the sweet, vanilla tonka bean with a very light woody / smoky touch. Nutmeg, lavender and orange blossom I could not really perceive.

All in all a rather sweet, medium-bodied men's fragrance, which is mainly represented by the tonka bean. Thus it has a very sweet and warming effect very quickly. I can well imagine the scent on cold winter evenings, for example at a Christmas market.

"Dude, roll down the windows!"
Armani Code Profumo found its way to me by chance. It was last year in South Tyrol, in a small drugstore In the shop there were some fragrances, all mixed wildly together and some had nice dents in the packages, very cheap. In general there was everything you can imagine in this shop. In view of the approaching autumn I decided to buy Armani Code, the original. At least I thought so. I took the box off the shelf, paid and went back to the hotel. Only when I got home did I open the box to put the bottle in my closet, but then Code Profumo slipped into my hand.
At first I was a bit annoyed, but then I just sprayed it on my arm. I was slain by a sweetness that was worlds stronger than the original code, which also has a few fresh notes. After five minutes, however, I extremely liked the scent. It was simply "delicious", reminiscent of nuts and sweets.
As soon as it got really cold, in the middle of December, I wore it for the first time. It simply fits into the cold season, because it "warms" and smells "full" and "comfortably round".

But somehow I lost sight of him a little bit and wore rather ultra-paints in winter. But then came carnival or Fasnet, as it is called in the south. It was a bitterly cold evening, my mates and I were full of anticipation for the party that awaited us. Already in the afternoon, quickly under the shower, put on a costume, find out who's driving and then under time pressure the big question: Which scent do I wear now? And instead of going for Ultramale as usual, I just grabbed Code Profumo without thinking and probably sprayed without thinking. I forgot what a killer silage and durability the scent has. Already in the hallway my father greeted me with a strong "Uffff", but I just wanted to leave quickly. When I arrived at my buddy's house, we all got into the car and it started. After about 2 minutes he braked, turned around to me and said seriously: "Dude, roll down the windows". I was a little embarrassed because the whole car smelled like me. Oh no, probably even the traffic behind us could smell me, with closed windows. I was a bit embarrassed and panicked how it would be later in the marquee. Finally we arrived and stormed the tent. I made my way to the bar to finally get some drinks. Suddenly someone tapped on my shoulder, I turned around and asked: "Yes?". It was a girl, she actually asked me about my scent. I replied somewhat quietly: "Is it that bad, I exaggerated it a bit". She said: "No, it's so good." I was relieved and that very evening (which was literally "intoxicating") I received 5 compliments, no, rather curious questions about my perfume.
Why did I write this? Because I am firmly convinced that in the right situations more is sometimes simply better. In that sense, trust. Even if you have to roll down the windows

By the way, my costume still smells like Code Profumo, because you are rarely allowed to wash it. That party was five months ago.

Best in his class!
I'm a big fan of the Armani Code series The Profumo is for me the best in all categories The code DNA is present and has an additional darker/deeper and sweeter touch.
I myself could smell the fragrance every day, as it is not annoying or pungent at all. On the contrary, it is even addictive
The durability is above average and better than the Absolu / Absolu gold.
Sillage and Projection are very good with about 3-4 hours, but you still notice the scent after more than 7 hours. Only after about 9 hours does it disappear completely.

For me one of the best autumn/winter fragrances with which you can't go wrong.
A must for every Armani Code lover, but everyone should already know it...

Armani Profumo the best perfume
In general it is the best! It was my first signature perfume and I loved it. It lasts very long, some clothes might smell for a week, plus it’s radius is really big, just a few sprays and the whole room smells. The smell is woody and warm, like Christmas night with friends or an industrial leather home. The amber debuts right when you put it on. It’s a very nice option for signature fragrance and if you are a lover of woody and sweet notes it’s your best option. A 4,9 out of 5.

Great autumn/winter fragrance
I liked this fragrance very much right after the first smell and was not disappointed over time. Surely the light sweetness and spice is not for the hot days. I would recommend it for the autumn/winter or as a date fragrance. Price/performance is top. Get yourself a sample!

Type question
Exactly this fragrance is one of the fragrances I do not like, in fact it is one of the fragrances I like least. Sweet, spicy, sticky, pompous, obtrusive and present, this is how it looks to me when I test it. Tonka bean and cardamom in exaggerated concentration do their part to give this impression. I would never have thought that I could get anything out of the scent
Today I should be proven wrong...

Today it was time again, the soccer Bundesliga has started again and I went to a good friend to watch the 15:30h games. It has to be mentioned that he lives in a two person flat share and his roommate was also present. But he came only to the second half time. With his arrival I noticed immediately, hui, but he is dieselled in. And for the first 10 minutes I had to think about what with. Anyway, immediately the whole room was filled with his smell. There was not a corner there that did not smell of him. And, before I could even ask, I knew he was wearing Armani Code Profumo. He would confirm this to me later, but we hadn't gotten that far yet. First I want to describe my scent impressions on him:
- i smelled tonka bean, caradamon
- i also smelled: a light citric and a nice fruity note
- it seemed almost somewhat fresh, although sweetness and spice formed the main chords

I had to admit that this scent simply smells enormously good on this man. A smell like ass on bucket. You have to imagine him like this: A chubby guy with shaved sides, extremely well-groomed beard and a side parting, as many people wear them nowadays for fashion reasons. Everything about him was neat. Every hair lay as it should. In addition, his manner was at least as present as his scent. A man who took over the room and the people in it, but still pleasant, funny and entertaining. We laughed and joked a lot and enjoyed the resumed play. The scent emanated from him like an aura. It underlined his character and gave him something sovereign. Fine, sweet-fresh wafts of spices emanated from him and enveloped our noses. I found the scent on him almost a little seductive. It also conveyed a kind of security and warmth. It also matched the good weather, which I would never have thought, as the scent is clearly arranged in my winter corner. I was ecstatic that a fragrance I hated so much could have such a great effect on another person. I would never buy it for myself, but I could not imagine anything better about it. So I don't need to mention that the durability and sillage of the Profumo are enormous. When I asked him when he had applied it, he replied that it had been about 5 hours ago. Amazing, I thought, and then a sillage like that. At the same time I want to emphasize again that I found it pleasant! It must also be mentioned that this colossus of a man is also someone who, due to his size, always seems to sweat physically, which can push scents in general. He was the proof of this.

What has today shown me? He confirmed again what everyone should internalize for himself, a fragrance is always a question of type. It has a different effect on each person and can be pleasing or inappropriate. So I give the Profumo a rather good 7, which says that I would give him a 10 on him and a 5 on me. The average value is therefore the result of the great experience I had with the fragrance today. I think it is suitable for everyone who likes to party, wants to stand out, has a certain appearance and wants to look neat. Here is power in the bottle, which must also embody the person. Those who like it quiet and silent may go on quickly.

So ask yourselves, which perfume guy am I?

Synthetic or sympathetic ?
Armani Code Profumo is a sweet-spicy perfume, which fits perfectly into a date or club setting. The opening is briefly reminiscent of the classic Armani Code. Sweet citrus fruits with spices and cardamom. It is strikingly synthetic and yet quite likeable. Then it goes on to a very spicy middle, where you notice a bit of nutmeg and a touch of cinnamon. In dry-down, the eau de parfum merges into a very beautiful chord of leather, amber and tonka bean. The leather is very modern and smooth and the tonka bean gives the whole thing a nice vanilla undertone. The perfume achieves similarities with 1 million by Paco Rabanne in certain stages, but fortunately it is never that extremely sweet. The durability is good at eight hours+ and the projection is also clearly visible in the first 120 minutes.

-------------------

Conclusion: Armani Code Profumo is a beautiful, strong fragrance for going out in the evening or for a date. Because of the sweetness and the strong potency, please only in autumn and winter. Compliments are guaranteed!

Sweet and masculine
Code profumo id a very sweet fragance but balances with leather which gives to It a more masculine vibe. The opening is a bit fresher and spicier but the dry diwn is overall for me a misxture between tonka, amber and leather which is delicious. This is a very simple perfume but It makes what It promise. Has a good longevity and, although It is not a beast, It is noticeble during some hours. Good option for nightout but i find It cool also for work, although not un summer. Suitable for all ages.

Chocolate praline cocoa vanilla milkshake
So if you look at reviews on Youtube, or read some comments here that say that the fragrance is very synthetic, I really wonder if I'm just a bit weird. I'm not a fan of designer fragrances at all. I find most of them, at least for a man himself 80% identical (just my opinion), apart from the fact that they are often unwearable for me personally, because they either just smell like indefinable sweetness, or they smell as if you just showered with some Axe shower gel, which is just not how I would like to smell. Therefore I have, although I am just at the beginning, almost only niche fragrances in my watch list, or in the fragrances that I would like to own if I have enough money :D However, this fragrance is simply really cool. That's what I have in the title, that's what it smells like to me. Well, admittedly, that doesn't sound very masculine, but the typical code DNA makes him masculine in any case. I get almost everywhere very regular compliments and the part lasts the whole day! You won't be anosmic for at least 5 hours (at least I won't) and so have the whole evening off. What brings me to the next point doesn't misunderstand me, the part is awesome, but please, please don't spray it. Everyone knows the people who come in somewhere and smoke out the whole room immediately. No matter how horny the perfume smells, no matter how sexy it is, it's a nuisance! So take it easy! They'll smell you.

Fragrance:
Starts for me with light oranges and apple notes and chocolate, then becomes more and more gourmand, goes towards chocolate praline, mixed with leather, just absolutely cool!

Sillage,Shelf life:
You and all the others will watch each other for 6-8 hours, never spray over, otherwise you will smell like the people who go shopping with 10 One Million sprayers.

Situation where I see the scent:
Good earning businessman, gets into his sports car and picks up his wife after work to have a nice dinner with her. Before, 5 sprays of Code Profumo are applied to the neck and behind the ears. After the romantic meal they take a walk in a beautiful park. Outside there is typical autumn weather, a light wind blows, it slowly gets colder again. The woman is wearing a pretty dress and a light coat, surprised by the weather, she begins to freeze. The man, who undoubtedly has good manners, puts his scarf on her. She now smells the whole walk over, the profumo on the scarf, the mixture of orange chocolate, with a mixture of black luxury leather and knows how lucky she is to have it.

My first love
I still remember how I went to the store in the winter of 16/17 and wanted to buy a perfume that suited the season. I was really in perfume fever at the time and watched dozens of videos about it and made a list of about 20 well-known perfumes. I tried every single one in the shop and nobody could really convince me and then I see the Armani Code Profume marked as a novelty and while trying all the alarm bells rang - that's it!!! Now three years later I still wear it during the cold season and have already received countless compliments. With distance with me on the compliment ranking list on TOP 1! It's your own fault who wears this perfume in summer. It's like I'm walking around with my scarf and cap at 30°C and then complaining about how unpleasant the cap is. Purely by chance I read a little later after the purchase a newspaper, which had distinguished this perfume as perfume of the year. That made me mega happy and I have seen myself confirmed in my opinion ! Strongly undervalued ! Absolute must for the winter !

The smell is not bad but... This is just too much. Too strong. Too loud and invasive. Headache. Almost toxic. Next
