Such an understated timeless classic...
I've circled around Eau pour Homme (the new version from 2013) in the stores several times over the last couple of years, wondering whether to test it or not. My olfactory memory from the 1990's was that of a great gentleman's cologne and I was genuinely scared if this scent should be either a watered down image of it's former self or simply being too old-school and that my tastes may have changed over the years.

Fast forward to last year, where I got my hands on a vintage miniature of this great juice and it does indeed still smell fantastic. Bitter lemon peel, lavender, sandalwood, clove and oakmoss mixed in perfect balance for a masculine statement. Not loud as many other powerhouses from the 1980's, but very refined and can be worn casually as well as dressed up.

Reading the reviews of the new version, it seems to be somewhat close to the original even if IFRA regulations may have killed some of the oakmoss and replaced it with synthetics. Never the less, I find myself ready for testing the new one now - knowing that the original is still all that.

If you come across an original vintage of this holy water, do not hesitate - I doubt that you would be disappointed.

One of my first in the 80s, and today it's back on the shelf^^
A classic par excellence...! I do not know what you could do better on him ...!?
Yes, you could... its durability could be a little better. And the Orginale from back then, but the gibbet just no more.
I can buy it again and again without thinking about where and to what I spray it on, He always performs... in every season.
Today's is still ne grenade, but no longer has the class of the old! Armani has so many fragrances, I have to try there again more the older and the newer. Eau de Nuit have already, the Cedre next^^.

This review is for the vintage version. Here we have a old school, citrus, herbal offering with Lavendar accord that was @ that time the envy of a citrus man's cologne. Given that this fragrance reeks of ITALIAN, I see a well dressed man in his Armani suit & wearing Armani Eau Pour Homme.

It starts out with that lemon/herbal vibe which I am assuming it is the basil. Kind of strong stuff to a degree at the beginning, but do not let it discourage you as most fumes start out strong yet can be misleading. The Lavendar creeps in which I do not care for along with some woods to give it a interesting edge. Then comes the Oakmoss which in todays world of perfume it is extinct...

IMO the Oakmoss which was used in many old school perfumes gave them distinction. It is sad that particular ingredient can no longer be used in perfumes. THANK GOODNESS FOR VINTAGES! :) This last about 5-6 hours on me & the projection seems to be low to medium. I wore this to a business meeting not long ago & was complimented twice. It serves it's purpose for what it does. Day wear in the spring/summer days.

However, the modern version of this is nothing but synthetic water to my nose... Not pleasant by a long shot. If you truly want to experience this make sure it is a vintage bottle. Also this competes with the great Eau Savage from Christian Dior as they share alot of the same qualities, if I had to choose one over the other,it would be Armani Eau Pour Homme. As nice as Eau Savage is, it's longevity is not as good compared to this & I am referring to the vintage Savage.

Armani's Class Act...
*This is a review of vintage Armani Eau pour Homme.

Armani Eau pour Homme (vintage) opens with a very clean green bitter orange and lemon tandem with a soapy herbal undertone. As the fragrance enters its early heart the lemon decouples from the quickly receding bitter orange, now joining slightly earthy nutmeg spice and mild carnation florals. The soapy herbal undertone remains from the open, now enhanced by clean vetiver and just a hint of oakmoss rising from the base. During the late dry-down the progression stays quite linear as the lemon finally fades and the soapy herbal accord couples with relatively dry sandalwood and clean musk from the base. Projection is average and longevity is below average at 5-6 hours on skin.

Eau pour Homme (vintage) is a classy clean citrus and herbs composition in the same vein of Monsieur de Givenchy and others. The best way to describe Eau pour Homme (vintage) is it generally smells like a toned down Irish Spring soap during the heart phase. Before anyone runs out to buy a bar of the soap to save some money, Eau pour Homme (vintage) is much more subtle and refined, smoothing out the brash nature of Irish Spring and adding much more complexity and sophistication with its deft use of oakmoss, clean vetiver and sandalwood in its base. The composition is rather linear and not particularly challenging; instead it is one of those fragrances easily at home in formal situations when one is in close proximity to others and a clean and pleasant smelling selection is just what the doctor ordered. The bottom line is the original formula of Eau pour Homme can still be found on the aftermarket for about $60 a 100ml bottle and is probably the best release from Armani, earning a "very good" 3.5 stars out of 5. I strongly prefer vintage Monsieur de Givenchy, but vintage Eau pour Homme is another great choice and is definitely worth a sniff at the very least.

This is my preferred "Acqua di Giò". A timeless classy fresh citrusy scent with a woody drydown, Unfortunately it has a low performance.

Armani homme der alte griffige Flakon, der mir besser gefällt. Das Kunststoffunterteil ist hohl und nur aufgesteckt, daher eine halbe Mogelverpackung. Man beachte auch den goldfarbenen Boden an Flakon und Verpackung.
