Hi there! Today’s post is about a fragrance I’ve had for a while but never used until last week – Giorgio Armani Armani Code Summer Eau Fraîche. This fragrance contains the following notes: bitter orange, neroli and pear (top notes), orange flower, jasmine, ginger and cyclamen (heart notes), and musk, vanilla and woody notes (base notes).
I’ve been wearing this fragrance for a week now, and I like it a lot. Armani Summer Code starts with a burst of neroli, then develops into a more floral direction with a strong orange flower note and a hint of jasmine. I don’t get much from the base notes, just a hint of musk, almost hidden under the neroli and the orange flowers.
I think this fragrance is a summer holiday fragrance – it’s for a more sophisticated holiday though. Somewhere in Italy, away from tourist hotspots, but maybe in a nice, secluded casa by the orange grove where you spend your time relaxing in the shade, reading a book and enjoying the peace and quiet.
Armani Summer Code doesn’t last long. But it’s just an Eau Fraîche, so it’s clear you can’t expect a fragrant spectacle that would go on for hours and hours… I think Armani Code Summer lasts for about an hour or two, and it doesn’t leave much of a trail on clothes or scarves. But that’s OK. At least you can spray away to your heart’s content!
Giorgio Armani Armani Code Summer Eau Fraîche is available as 75ml. This is a discontinued limited edition, so it’s probably not easy to find outside of ebay. I can’t comment on the price for this fragrance, but I snapped it up at a clearance sale a long time ago.
