About this deal

Hollywood is a mixed bag performance wise, though, it could serve a place in a teenager’s or younger man’s collection. The citrus in the beginning, isn’t of the same quality as the Armani, but the later vanilla, amber, and lavender are much better. This is why so many fragrance companies have created comparable scents to this cologne. In this post, I want to present some options for men, who want a similar smell to Armani Code or an alternative for less money. Ambery Lavender by Dossier– As far as fragrances that are inspired by the DNA of the original Armani Code, this one from Dossier is probably your best bet. The spice of the nutmeg is dominant for a few minutes, before the suede and tonka bean really take over. The fresh spice here is great, nutmeg and rum, are surprisingly great together. The fruit notes, are also just strong enough, to prevent it being a completely dark fragrance. Ahhh, Armani Code. It has been around for 15+ years or so now, had its time in the sun, and still remains pretty popular. Nowadays, there are better options, especially in the Armani Code lineup than the original. However, the classic does still manage to have its charms.

That one, was a very fresh take with a greater use of the citrus top notes and a fairly strong mint coming through. Sport was discontinued a long time ago, but if you want to try it out, without spending crazy amounts on unsold bottles…this is what you’ll want. Intenso is smooth with a solid dark feel that is balanced by a citrus sweet undertone. Intenso is softer, with more of a powdered aroma than Code, thanks to the attractive iris note. Not the best sillage, but it can be double sprayed, as it isn’t very expensive. The mint is joined by ginger, vetiver, and some kind of aquatic accord to give it that slightly spice and cool sporty vibe. In the end, Hollywood overcomes its shaky start, and has a really nice aroma with a bit of floral and woods underneath.

Copacabana shares the citrus and powdery qualities of Code. A bit spicier and the dry down doesn’t have the same leathery vibe. If you want the absolute cheapest options, go with this and/or Playboy Hollywood.

Cuba Brazil Copacabana Eau de Toilette Spray for Men, 3.3 Ounce – One of the lesser known fragrance offerings from Cuba. Copacabana opens up with a great citrus blend and floral notes, which gives it a bit of a powdery edge. Code of Dua– So, Dua, went in another direction and created an inspired take on the old Armani Code Sport flanker. This one is fresh, warm, with a nice sweetness from vanilla and tonka bean. The projection is strong, but not absurdly so, and the longevity consistently hits 10+ hours, on my skin. Again, it shares a similar DNA to the original Code, but stands alone with its fragrance. Code Absolu Full ReviewThere’s a noticeable lavender and at least some rose within the composition. It is a fresh sorts of fragrance, which dries down with some clove spice, and underlying woody notes. Pretty straightforward fragrance, but smells quite nice, and has good performance. What you’re really going to get here is violet. Once the bergamot has settled down, it is a fresh lightly spiced powdery floral blend. Violet and jasmine. Not the highest quality, but the performance isn’t awful.
