Giorgio Armani Code Eau de Parfum
Advantages: Smell, packaging
Disadvantages: Price maybe?
I was given Armani Code For Women Eau de Parfum as part of a gift set by my boyfriends parents for my 21st birthday. I have more bottle of perfume than I can count on my dressing table but I am always thrilled when I receive another as I have started to get something of an addiction to perfume. Especially ones that smell as good as this!
Simple yet sensual, comforting yet captivating. A spellbinding fragrance evoking the same elegance as a Giorgio dress.
*About the Product*
Orange blossom is the muse of this creation: a miracle of the nature, the quintessence of femininity. A unique creation reveals this flowers full magic and operates its metamorphosis by the incredibly soft embrace of Madagascar vanilla and a touch of honey. Sambac jasmine from India amplifies the radiance and elegance of this celebration of noble materials. An unforgettable fragrance that exudes a mysterious charm.
*Price and Availability*
Armani Code For Women Eau de Parfum can be bought from a variety of different shops including Debenhams, Boots, The Perfume Shop and House of Fraser. It is also available to buy online from www.boots.com if you prefer to buy perfume online but my advice is to smell it first in a shop.
You can buy this perfume in 3 different size bottles. The prices for these average at around:
- 30ml bottle: £34
- 50ml bottle: £45
- 75ml bottle: £61
I consider the prices of these bottles to be quite expensive but as it is such a reputable and designer brand and I would be willing to pay these prices to have the perfume again. And even more so as the smell of the perfume is divine! You can also purchase 2 mini 10ml bottles of the perfume for £25 although I would prefer to buy the 30ml bottle.
The packaging: Stylish, classy, mysterious and elegant are just a few words that I would use when describing the packaging of this product. As I received it as part of a 3 piece gift set, I didn't see its 'real' outer packaging but the box that the set came in was a gorgeous deep blue colour and made of hard cardboard which I have subsequently made use of as a box for my pens on the desk in my bedroom.
What is important is the design of the bottle of this perfume and you could have this bottle for a few months or even have to have it out in public so you don't want in to look a complete eye sore. The bottle shape is simple yet effective. It is a round tube bottle which is the small width from the top to the bottom. I have the 50ml bottle and it stands at a nice height, not too tall and not too short. The bottle is actually quite simply. There is nothing unique about its shape yet for me it looks special.
The colour of the glass is a tinted deep blue colour which changes. It is a gorgeous, deep navy blue at the top of the bottle and the colour gets lighter towards the bottom. I love the colouring of the bottle. It's deep blue colour gives off the feeling of mystery and night, perfect for the evening smell of the perfume. I also like the colour as it is lighter at the bottom part of the bottle, allowing you to see exactly how much of the product is remaining. There is a black floral silhouette design on the top part of the bottle. This pattern oozes sexiness and style.
I definitely commend the designers of the bottle of this perfume. It looks sophisticated and chic. And even the lid clicked on and off with ease which is something that usually all perfumes fail miserably at getting right.
The smell: Spicy, sexy and sophisticated. These are three words that I would use to describe this striking perfume. It is a fairly strong perfume with orange being the predominant aroma. The second strongest smell is jasmine which is where the floral aroma comes along. This gorgeous aroma stays fresh throughout the day, oozing a sexy scent.
I think that the fruity but floral scent of Armani Code is appropriate to wear during both the day and night, however more suited to evening wear than day wear. It is quite strong which means that it is noticeable in the evening if you want to stand out and this is also my reason for thinking that it isn't best for wear during the day, particularly at work.
The aroma of this perfume is floral yet fruity with a touch of spicy and quite strong. If you like the smell of orange then this perfume will definitely be one that you will like.
Staying power: When sprayed, Armani Code Eau de Parfum lasts for a number of hours but it isn't the best when it comes to endurance. Initially, you think that the perfume will last all day and night as the scent when you first spray is relatively strong although it fades quite significantly within the first hour or two. You will definitely have to reapply if going out in the evening and you want the scent to be as when you have applied.
How many squirts of the perfume are required? I think that with this perfume only 2 or 3 sprays are required. One on the neck, one on the body and one on the wrists. This way you can have a nice but not overpowering amount and you can smell its striking aroma.
Longevity of the product: The size of the bottle that I own is the 50ml one. As I alternate the perfumes that I wear so frequently, it is quite difficult for me to say accurately how long this bottle lasts but I would take a guess at it lasting about 6-7 months when used every day which is pretty good value.
*Would I Recommend This Perfume?*
Yes, yes, yes! Armani Code For Women Eau de Parfum is a fabulous perfume that I really do love. The aroma is unlike any others that I have smelt. A truly unique scent. It is a brilliant perfume which is versatile for wear during the day or night. And although it has a distinct smell, I certainly do not believe that it is too strong or overpowering.
I think it is a younger persons perfume that is perhaps suited a little more to those under the age of 40 but you may well disagree. Let's just say that I probably wouldn't buy it for my nan. It just wouldn't work.
Armani Code For Women Eau de Parfum is a stunning perfume that I truly love. There is no question in my mind that I would buy this perfume again in the future, either for myself or for a friend. It has a gorgeous flowery yet musky scent is very unique and one which I think a lot of people will find that they like.
