More than gold
Exists in a space between Code Absolu, Le Male Le Parfum, and Dior Homme Intense. On its own, it's a beautiful sweet vanillic iris garnished with a fresh, fizzy orange-apple top. This is less intensely powdery or pure vanilla than OG Absolu to my nose, with the floral-aromatic accords in the mid, but less aromatic than LMLP without lavender here to bolster the iris. It's fairly well balanced between the vanilla and iris notes. The woody and suede-ish base is quite a bit more noticeable here as well, giving it shades of DHI if you traded ~55% of its iris in for vanilla. Similar performance to OG Absolu, though I get more longevity as a skin scent from that one. Moderately soft projection for 2-3hr, longevity 10-12hr.

Great Upgrade
This beautiful golden flacon has been in my collection for several months. I think it was released sometime in the first third of this year and I ordered it this summer. Of course nothing you wear in summer, but what you have, you have. Especially since it seems to be a limited edition. Here it seems to get little attention despite really good reviews. A detailed comment he deserves.
I just love all that code. In the past the original code was one of my favourite scents and one of the most worn scents of mine. This was a long time ago and I still love it today. Of course there are many better alternatives, especially since the current formula doesn't last very long. Nevertheless always a great alternative. Furthermore, I still own Sport, Colonia and Profumo from this series. The flankers A-List and Absolu are also really good, but I didn't need them in my collection.

This is a limited edition of the Flanker Absolu. I had tested it, but I was not convinced to buy it. This edition has much more power and expressiveness.
The bottle is really beautiful and chunky in gold. The same as the Absolu, but all in gold. This fragrance is also very good value for money. About 70 Euro for 110ml. Fair, if you consider this great performance.
The Absolu went too much in the direction of Profumo. Roughly speaking, this one also goes in a similar direction, but with much more spices and iris it took a different path. What you read in the pyramid is what you get here and you can smell many notes very well: You get great fruits like tangerine and a rather tart apple. The heart note is already noticeable at the start: a carotene iris, which is present almost throughout the whole process. This reminds me so easily of La Nuit de L'Homme Intense, which has a similar iris note. Also a strong saffron note sets in very early. A great spice, which fits great to the sweetness. All in all much more spicy than the other flankers. Leather rounds off the spice well and provides style. Elegant blend that always works. Also the Tonka sweetness is to be smelled like most codes over the entire process. The base sounds softly woody. From beginning to end a harmonious creation, which definitely has power. Even if there are many sweet-spicy scents, roughly speaking: This has recognition value and remains in the memory.
Performance is very good, as I said. Durability should be in double digits and the sillage is very good over long distances.

For me, next to Code Profumo, the best flanker in this series. Fans of sweet and spicy fragrances should try this one. In the cooler season a great fragrance that can be worn on many occasions

Fantastic fragrance for the cold season
Armani Code Absolut Gold is a wonderful oriental Christmassy fragrance. It has a great durability. It is one of my favourite fragrances at the moment, when you smell it it will warm your heart. 110ml usually cost between 70 and 100€. The bottle is very beautifully designed and makes a very high-quality impression as you are used to from Armani. As already mentioned in the title, it is best to wear it in the cold season, as it also has a certain sweetness

Sweet Armani Code flanker, very much like a lighter profumo. Nice, but not unique enough to justify.

Woody, spicy, common DNA with a lot of other designer fragrances. Good scent, although I don't understand all the hype around Code flankers
