Scent: GIORGIO ARMANI Eau Pour Homme + Eau De Nuit

“I wanted to create a perfume which seduces the men beyond the generations and the years.”

- Giorgio Armani, Milan 12 May 1984

Giorgio in 1984 conceptualized the quintessence of the Armani style when he blended together the fragrance Armani eau pour homme. The beginning of what would be a sensually smelling long life of success. Dripping with notes of Bitter Orange, Bergamot, Nutmeg, Cedar and Vertiver just to mention a few ingredients; this epitome of masculinity and elegance was the precursor in the fragrance industry Рthe first citrus-chypré in 1984.

Taking your day into night is Armani’s future classic interpretation of the brand’s unprecedented taste and skill with tuxedos. Armani eau de nuit was conceived with an ambery woody intensity which oscillates between the sensuality of an iridescent blond and a spicy romantic freshness. Underlined with signs of Ambrox and Tonka Bean its mid-tones include Orris and Basil topped off with highlights that include Pink Pepper. This version of the men’s fragrance presents itself as the epitome of a classic scent for all men of all generations.

In 2013 we see the brand introduce sublime print advertisements to accompany the seductive scent of casual cool and slick suits. Mr Armani himself forms part of the communication and he is accompanied by the gentlemen Charlie Siem (Violinist) and Francesco Carrozzini (Photographer) who are each seen playing with their hands, the refined way to express italianity.

  1. I finally bought me Armani Black Code last month. Fragrance is one of those things we can't change so often without being disappointed with how the fragrance settles after a while. I've tried all of Dior's available range for men in SA, and the original Fahrenheit remains my favourite going for almost nine years now. I want to try out all of what Armani has to offer as well.
