Armani Code Sport Eau De Toilette Review

Armani Code Sport Eau De Toilette

armani code sport eau de toilette
4 km on the treadmill, 300 crunches, 100 situps, 100 leg raises, and then some weight training- this is my regular schedule in my gym in evenings. By the time I’m getting off the treadmill I am dripping with sweat. The rest of the workout only makes my tee shirt more and more drenched. No wonder I couldn’t find a perfume that would last in the gym and stifle my sweaty body odor. Well that was before I found Armani Code Sport Eau De Toilette.

What the Company Says
Armani Code Sport for men came out in June 2011. Armani Code Sport radiates freshness, excitement, adrenaline and seduction at the same time, owing to its aromatic-woody composition. It refreshes with invigorating notes of lemon, mandarin and three kinds of mint, and opiates with gray amber (ambrox), ginger and vetiver.

Sport as a rite of seduction: a vision of Giorgio Armani, translated into a fragrance.

Mint gives its explosive flavour to a surprising and unusual top note. Spearmint, peppermint and wild mint create an unexpected bouquet, its incredible freshness providing a stunning effect. The heart of the fragrance reveals the seductive power of Code Sport, introduced by citrus fruits. Like a crisp coating of ice, hivernal underlines these contrasts and prolongs the dialogue between icy crispness and sensual breath, giving the fragrance an almost unlimited life.

Infinitely masculine, the design of the bottle is an invitation to slip it into a travel bag and carry it everywhere.

My Experience with Armani Code Sport

Comes in a black matte bottle with silver cap and looks very ‘manly’ to me at first sight.
open bottle
Price: I bought it ‘duty free’ at Bangkok airport so I don’t have much idea about the actual price. It should be somewhere in the range of Rs. 2000- Rs. 2500.

Well, Armani Code Sport eau de toilette is strong. The moment you spray it on, you are engulfed in lemony, minty fragrance. The nearest I could come to explaining that fresh citrusy, mint scent is if you see the picture below. Maybe you can understand what I mean. ๐Ÿ™‚
The lemon and mint flavor are strong and they stay on for long. The scent becomes subtle subdued and pleasant after a while and stays that way for hours. Those with keen noses might be able to smell some ginger and mandarin notes. I am not able to. Anyhow, I don’t need to. ๐Ÿ™‚

This scent is certainly not a new invention. Many other sport fragrances might smell the same. In fact, Rati and I had a whiff of Chanel ‘chance fraiche’ and to perfume-ignorant people such as us it smelled very similar to Armani Code Sport. But what sets it apart from other sport/ citrusy fragrances is that it lasts really long, and it has a high concentration (nearly 5%) of Ambrox which makes the scents smooth and a little musky. If you are using this fragrances be careful not to spray too much or it will discomfort the noses of those around you.

All in all, it’s a very great scent for summer, especially for men who sweat a lot and would like to keep smelling good for long. And it’s not a scent one would get bored of so you frequently find yourself reaching for it when you are leaving in a hurry.

Pros of Armani Code Sport Eau De toilette

  • The smell. Very very fresh lemon and mint flavor.
  • Lasts very long, nearly 5- 6 hours.
  • The packaging is extremely sleek and manly. It’s easy to grip also.
  • If you want to gift something to your man, gift this blindly. He would never complain.

Cons of Armani Code Sport Eau De toilette

  • Nothing really, except that the scent is a little strong in the beginning. It settles down soon enough and stays as lemony musky whiff for hours.
  • It’s not a very new or inventive smell. Before buying you can always have a look at other sports perfume such as Chanel Allure Homme Sport or Gucci Sport Pour Homme.

My Rating: 4.3 out of 5.

  1. Good review…..i gifted my bf armani aftershave and showergel, he likes it so much that,he said he almost finished the shower gel within 2 weeks…. :yahoo: :yahoo: ……. Since he doesn’y use perfumes at all (only deodorants), i dont have to buy it :stars: :stars: …

      1. Maybe he will, he’s such a huge fan of armaani, maybe i can give this as the onam gift :methinks: .. But most of the times armaanis cost more than 2.5k, :spank: :spank: ..

  2. And Sanjeevji , one more thing
    I want to appreciate u for ur chanel gifts to Rati.. Bagavan kare aap jaisa pati sab ladkiyonkon mile.. :toothygrin: :toothygrin: … I mailed that link to my bf and he was like :scream: :scream: ….
    :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

    1. Well it was more of an appreciation actually… she has been working hard for the past two years to establish this blog… and holidays have been rare. So I thought I should splurge and surprise her. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. And u did… ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰ .. She totally deserves it ๐Ÿ˜‰ .. I can understand hw much of hardwork from u people made this blog so popular.. Love ya both, kudos to u … ( Aur ek raaz ki batha dete hain, ki aap bahut lucky ho ki aapko itni achi patni mili, magar unko mat batana, :secret2: :secret2: … :P)

  3. Nice review, Sanjeev. Sounds like a really awesome fragrance for men. I’ll definitely keep this in mind for my hubby’s birthday next month. :))

    1. Thank you Sabrina.. I’m not very good at describing describing fragrances, but this one is good. Men will like it. I would like to try out Armani code also now. Have heard a lot about it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I also got hubby armani code- not the sport one- the long black one…. its also soooooo saaxyyyyyyyy… i’ll get this one also for him ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I have a doubt- even i like doing crunches- but someone told me they wont help… I want to work a lot on my tummy- ispe aapki raay????

  5. My hubby is an active guy also and sweats a lot, I guess that’s why he likes perfumes that are titled _____ sport. :)) :toothygrin: The lemon and mint scent sure sounds refreshing Sanjeev. I’ll suggest this to him when he wants to try a new perfume. :))

  8. Thank you for this article Sanjeevji……….I will never let my husband go near the Armani counter after this….I won’t let him splurge such an amount on himself…..yeh ghor paap hai O:) O:) O:) O:) O:) O:) O:)

        1. very badd jomo… :nonono: :nonono: khud par spulrge karo to kuch nahi. but husband na kar de… :pan: :pan: .. unko bi apni zindgai jeene ka haq hai jomo.. feeling pity for him.. :teddy: :teddy:

          1. He he……Poonam………I would say, “my husband’s happiness is in my happiness” :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

            1. Sanjeevjiiiiii….is there any punishment in INdian Penal code for poking a guy’s out with forks…..just asking for general knowledge sake……not something that I would do to you of course :knife: :knife: :knife: :knife: :knife: :knife: :knife: :knife: :knife: :knife: Also, please let me know if there is any punishment In IPC for pushing someone into septic tank….not that I want to do that to Rads :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

              1. Very serious punishment for this… they tie the person to a hard stone stool with a pillar, and then they start gifting all the belongings, such as gold cosmetics and sarees etc., amongst the gathered crowd…

                they even make the victim wear her jewellery first, and slowly all the women come forward one by one and snatch a jewellery piece for themselves.

                Of course we wouldn’t like to do that to you either O:) O:)

                  1. :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:
