Picture of Giorgio Armani

Giorgio Armani was born in an Italian town called Piacenza. He was raised with his older brother Sergio and younger sister Rosanna from his mother Maria Raimondi and father Ugo Arman.

While at High school at the Liceo Scientifico Respighi in Piacenza, Giorgio wanted to have a career in medicine. He enrolled in the Department of Medicine at the University of Milan. But after three years, in 1953, he left and joined the army.

Due to his medical background, he was assigned to the Military Hospital in Verona. Where he would attend shows at the Arena. He eventually decided to look for a different career path.

On July 24, 1975, he founded Giorgio Armani S.p.A. in Milan, with his friend Galeotti. In October of that year, he presented his first collection of men’s wear for Spring and Summer 1976 under his own name. He also produced a women’s line for the same season.

Armani Luxury ready-to-wear clothing

Giorgio Armani established an innovative relationship with the fashion industry, characterized by the 1978 agreement with Gruppo Finanzario Tessile (GFT).

Which made it possible to produce luxury ready-to-wear in a manufacturing environment under the attentive supervision of the company’s designer.

In 1979, after founding the Giorgio Armani Corporation. Armani began producing for the United States and introduced the Main line for men and women. The label became one of the leading names in international fashion. With the introduction of several new product lines. Including G. A. Le Collezioni,  Armani Underwear and Swimwear and Accessories.

In the early 1980s the company signed an important agreement with L’Oréal. It was to create perfumes and they introduced the Armani Junior, Armani Jeans, and Emporium Armani lines. And in 1982 by the introduction of Emporium Underwear, Swimwear, and Accessories.

A new store was opened in Milan for the Emporium line, followed by the first Giorgio Armani boutique. Armani’s concern for the end user culminated in the development of a more youthful product with the same level of stylistic quality as his high-end line. But at a more accessible price.

Description of Notes

  • Top notes: Also called the head notes. The scents that are perceived immediately on application of a perfume. Top notes consist of small, light molecules that evaporate quickly. They form a person’s initial impression of a perfume and thus are very important in the selling of a perfume. Examples of top notes include mint, lavender and coriander.
  • Middle notes: Also referred to as heart notes. The scent of a perfume that emerges just prior to the dissipation of the top note. The middle note compounds form the “heart” or main body of a perfume and act to mask the often unpleasant initial impression of base notes, which become more pleasant with time. Examples of middle notes include seawater, sandalwood and jasmine.
  • Base notes: The scent of a perfume that appears close to the departure of the middle notes. The base and middle notes together are the main theme of a perfume. Base notes bring depth and solidity to a perfume. Compounds of this class of scents are typically rich and “deep” and are usually not perceived until 30 minutes after application. Examples of base notes include tobacco, amber and musk.

What was our Findings

What can i say about this Armani Code aftershave.  It is a personal favourite of mine and I would be very happy to use this fragrance every day. It smells wonderful from when you first apply and it continues to do so for at least 6 hours.

Romance is in the air!

With a scent of Bergamot and lemon in the back ground to give it that fresh feeling as it just keeps on giving. It makes your nose smell the pure joy of Armani Code. With a price starting at around £40.00 it`s a real bargain and if i had this as a gift every year, i would be happy!!

Reasons to consider when purchasing your Perfume.

The reason why some perfumes are expensive really depends on what ingredients it contains which is why fake perfumes are cheaper. The reason for this is because the products are not natural but man made, to actually copy the scent.

Which is really a false saving because you will over time you will use twice the amount of the fake product for it to smell for the same time period as the original.

Description of Types of Aftershave

  • Perfume or Extrait –  in English is known as perfume extract, pure perfume, or simply perfume: 15–40% aromatic compounds. 
  • Esprit of Parfum (ESDP) –  15–30% aromatic compounds, a seldom used strength concentration in between EDP and perfume.
  • Eau de parfum (EdP) or parfum de toilette (PdT) –  10–20% aromatic compounds (typically ~15%). Sometimes called “eau de parfum” or “millésime”; parfum de toilette is a less common term, most popular in the 1980s. That is generally analogous to eau de parfum.
  • Eau de toilette (EDT) –  5–15% aromatic compounds (typically ~10%); This is the staple for most masculine perfumes.
  • Eau de Cologne ( EDC ) –  Often simply called cologne: 3–8% aromatic compounds (typically ~5%).
  • Eau fraiche – Products sold as “splashes”, “mists”, “veils” and other imprecise terms. Generally these products contain 3% or less aromatic compounds and are diluted with water rather than oil or alcohol.

Once you have purchased your product, where do you store it?

Well most people will put their aftershave in the bathroom or on their bedside cabinet by the window, but this couldn’t be worse for your perfume. Perfumes hate direct sunshine and damp places like a typical bathroom. So my advise would be to store it in a dark corner of your bedroom and it will last as long as the manufacturer specifications.
