Georgio Armani Code A-List


A huge thank you to Roisin Tierney Crowe and Giorgio Armani for sending me a bottle of their new limited edition fragrance Armani Code A-List to review. Code A-List is a flanker to 2004′s Armani Code, and follows 2016's Armani Code Profumo and 2017's Armani Code Colonia. It’s a fragrance infused with the seductive notes of the first iconic Armani Code aftershave, yet has been distilled further into a rare blend. Magnifying ingredients, bergamot and green mandarin blend with the smoky tones of Gaïac wood. A tension has been created between lavandin grosso heart and the intensity of Tonka bean. Due to a unique way of extracting, the lavandin grosso heart brings luminosity, opening doors to the exclusive world of Code A-List. Code Colonia is one of my favourite fragrances ever so I was very happy to try out this new member of the Armani Code litter. I’ve been wearing it socially for the two weeks and I’ve gotten plenty of compliments and questions about it. You’ll find it in Brown Thomas, Debenhams and select pharmacies for around €66 (50ml) and €84
