I decided to do a quick review of Armani Code before I return that pretty blue bottle to Sephora. About two weeks ago, I was going through the rush process (meaning, the process of getting into a sorority). I was having a hell of a time deciding which perfume to wear to the rush events. I wanted something pretty, but with zero potential to offend. All of my perfumes and various samples had way too much character. Enter Armani Code. Code starts off interesting, with a blast of ginger that reminds me of my beloved Japanese food, but quickly becomes little more than a very clean orange blossom fragrance, and (as I have come to realize) more than a little masculine. Unfortunately for Code, rush is over, and I no longer have a need for such a nondescript fragrance in my collection.

Ack… we decided ages ago Armani Code is a dupe for Downy’s Lavender and Vanilla fabric softener. Our motto was ‘great on clothes, sucks on skin.”
Return it and get something fabulous like Gucci by Gucci EdP. Or even better, save the pennies and get something amazingly haute and niche and mind blowing. 🙂
Oh right, don’t worry about your sorority girls. Just tell them so-and-so (insert amazing actress or model here) wears it. 🙂
Amy, excellent advice as always. Unfortunately I was not able to trick the sorority girls into thinking I was one of them 😦 Is Gucci really so fabulous??? My list of perfumes to try at Sephora is growing longer and longer with each snow day.
By the way, I apologize, when I woke up this morning I thought I saw an email from you, but now it’s gone! Would you mind resending it?
