Summer 2016 welcomes the UEFA championships, the Rio de Janeiro Olympic games and a new edition to the Armani Code family, Code PROFUMO. An intense men’s fragrance, aimed at the transition from main event to after-party, and inspired by the iconic Giorgio Armani suit.

The fragrance opens with notes of green mandarin essence, crisp green apple and cardamom essence creating a clean, fresh scent. It then continues on to a blend of aromatic lavender notes and nutmeg essence revealing the solar purity of an orange blossom centre. These key components are then warmed by Tonka bean absolute and its tobacco accents before being infused with a woody-ambery accord.


Similarly to the sharp styling of the iconic Giorgio Armani suit, the Code PROFUMO bottle has a black lacquer finish with amber shadowing. The patented bronze cap is embossed with the GA monogram whilst a subtle broad black belt lies directly underneath imitating a key tuxedo component- the cummerbund.

The new fragrance is endorsed by Star Trek’s own Chris Pine, whose features in the fragrance’s innovative split-screen commercial. So whether it’s a few drinks whilst watching the football or a night rolling dice at the casino, Giorgio Armani Code PROFUMO is a worthy investment priced £62 for a 60ml bottle.
