A classic for the masculine perfumery, Armani Eau Pour Homme was introduced in 1984 as a citrus aromatic fragrance, developed by perfumer Roger Pellegrino. The scent is pretty hard to get by these days however I was lucky when I sniffed it for the first time, back in 2008. Armani Eau Pour Homme could be characterized by a stark refreshing citrus note that accompanies the fragrance throughout its entire development stages.
The opening in Armani Eau Pour Homme is reserved to citrus, in a blend of Californian green lemon, bergamot, green orange and Sicilian mandarin orange, spiced with basil. For the mid development, an entire floral symphony was prepared; the ingredients include: Rose, jasmine, lavender, cinnamon, lily, carnation and nutmeg. The base of Armani Eau Pour Homme contains cedar, vetiver, oakmoss, musk, patchouli and sandalwood.
The fragrance exhibited a nice projection on my skin, however, it is a little outdated for my taste. Speaking of other things that I dislike in Armani Eau Pour Homme (I repeat, in spite of its excellent aroma!) is the bottle and the packaging box. The simple masculine shape of the flask made of transparent glass is contrasting with the black color scheme of the bottom, present as well on half of the stopper. The other half of the cap comes in a golden hue, which is inappropriate in my opinion however balanced by the pale yellow shade of the liquid.
Overall, Armani Eau Pour Homme is a fragrance dedicated to a mature man, driven by passion in his life.
