The time when Armani Code arrived on the market it was also for me the moment of recognizing the importance of a “black perfume” in your wardrobe. The year was 2004 and at that time, Armani Code was introduced under the name Black Code. After a period of 2 years, its feminine counterpart, Armani Code for Women become available. Belonging to the oriental woody olfactory group and developed by a team of perfumers that included Carlos Benaim, Dominique Ropion and Olivier Polge, Armani Code for Women is “a spellbinding fragrance, evoking the same elegance as a Giorgio Armani red-carpet dress”, according to the description from the official website.
The face that fronts the fragrance is (the more famous as a model and less as an actress) Megan Fox, who appears in a video commercial centered on the idea of understated elegance, as imagined by Giorgio Armani. And this goes well with the idea of a fragrance ideal for a seductress kind of woman, or the official image that speaks about “a woman’s mysterious code of seduction”.
The opening of Armani Code for Women brings together the balanced accord of citruses (African bitter orange and sweet Italian orange), juxtaposed to a spicy ginger note. Then, as the scent moves into the mid development phase, the floral facet is unveiled, thanks to a mixture of Tunisian orange blossom and jasmine sambac. The dry down happens after no more than 1 hour, offering a gourmand union of sweet vanilla and honey, over a base of musky wood accords.
The flacon that holds Armani Code for Women takes the shape of its masculine counterparts, preserving the nice curves but adding a nice floral pattern over the transparent and blue colored glass, which renders the bottle with an air of elegance.
