Smells like strong cinnamon
I read the good reviews about this cologne and decided to get it for my husband as a gift. I never smelled the scent, so I was taking a chance. After wearing it, he smelled like sweet cooking spice. We thought maybe the smell would die down, so he went to work with it on. He said that people kept asking who was wearing cinnamon scented cologne while he was there. He knew it was him, but he didn’t say anything…LOL! I don’t like it because of the constant smell of cinnamon spice which reminds me of strong Big Red gum. I kept getting queasy, so we just decided to throw it away. Maybe his body chemistry just didn’t go with it. Overall, If you like the smell of pumpkin pies on your skin, then I would suggest this. If not, do not buy this scent. And from now on when it comes to scents, I will have to sniff before buying.
My standby cologne
This is my second choice for cologne. It has a strong modern smell, and goes well with semi casual or formal evening wearing. It is highly versatile.My only complaint is that is not that long lasting, and the smell fades quicker than I’d like for a $50 bottle of colgone.
Not a fan
I bought this for my husband and its not a keeper! The scent is way to strong.. Almost overwhelming! It’s not a sexy scent at all.
A SUBTLE, SENSUAL FRAGRANCE FOR MEN
If memory serves, noted designer Giorgio Armani was once quoted as saying that his designs were created not to be noticed but rather to be remembered. A wonderful thought, typifying his always elegant, classic style. It’s certainly true of his latest fragrance for men – Black Code.This is a subtle, sensual scent with a touch of the oriental found in notes of lemon and bergamot. It’s an ultra masculine fragrance, difficult to capture yet impossible to ignore.True to Armani’s vision, the glass bottle is artfully crafted – a cylinder of the deepest blue. It’s gift boxed in the same color with printing in gray and white. Available in 1.7 and 2.5 oz. sprays, Black code is sure to take its place by the side of Armani’s always popular Gio and Mania.
I have been wearing this scent for a few years now and love it. I get many compliments from the ladies on it. Will keep purchasing it as long as the ladies compliments keep coming in.
The “Mania” continues…
It has been a while since last using Armani Mania… What a pleasant surprise..!!Mania is a successful blend of floral, fruity, musk, and woodsy notes that I truly enjoy. It opens with a burst of the floral and fruity notes then settles close to the skin with woodsy notes and musk finish. In my (humble) opinion, Mania breathes "class" like a fresh laundered shirt, but offers great flexibility to include wearing with a comfortable pair of jeans and that favorite t-shirt. Additionally, given the fruit and floral notes of the fragrance, the target time(s) of year may be Spring and/or Summer, however, if your body chemistry allows the musk and/or woodsy notes to project, Mania could be worn any time of year or for any occasion. Very well done Mr. Armani..!!Longevity and projection/sillage are moderate, making it ideal for an office setting, but sufficient some 4-6 hours later saying, "gee, I still smell Armani Mania". It lasts much longer on clothing. While I haven’t had favorable comments from the opposite sex, i.e. the "Wow Factor", it has the potential. Not sure how many of my female employees feel comfortable saying, "gee boss, you smell great today..!!". To reiterate, Armani is a "class" scent that has great potential for the "Wow Factor".Similar to the fragrance, the bottle is a classic design. I am drawn to the clear glass bottles to allow the user to see the clarity of the fragrance. The "smoky" color of the fragrance, and perhaps tint of the glass, adds to the positive mystique of the fragrance. The packaging is also well done.A check of the online pricing of Mania, shows that it is still moderate to medium pricing (in the $50 – $100 USD) range. For that price and the quality of the scent, it is highly recommended to add this to your collection.Out of a possible five (5) stars, my evaluation of Armani Mania comes in at 4.4 stars. Great fragrance…Daily I.M. – Ride the wave and don’t ask where it goes…
Too much hype.
I bought two bottles because I thougth women will be crazy about the smell. Why would I think that way? Reviews from all over the web. Nobody ever asked me what I am wearing when I used it. Nevertheless, the jet black bottles are cool to look at.
Love it! I have been using it for years! It’s worthy the money. Very soft smell and it can be used anytime of the day.
