7 Best Giorgio Armani Colognes for Men (2022)
When it comes to men’s cologne, we think it’s best to stick to the experts. Giorgio Armani Perfume has been formulating men’s fragrances for decades, with their first cologne ‘Armani Eau Pour Homme’ hitting the market in 1984. While Armani Eau Pour Homme is now unfortunately discontinued, the fashion house remains one of the most popular cologne brands in the world, and regularly releases new men’s fragrances.
In this article, we’re going to take a look at our favourite Giorgio Armani fragrances for men, from amber, woody scents to fresh, aquatic scents. If you’re looking for your new favourite go-to cologne, this guide will help you find the scent that suits you best, no matter your age or style. Let’s get started!
If you’re looking for a quintessential masculine fragrance, you can’t do better than Armani Code. Released almost 20 years ago back in 2004, Armani Code is one of the most popular men’s colognes of the decade, and offers a rich, masculine scent with notes of mandarin, bergamot, and tobacco. Upon application, Armani Code wears first as a citrus scent, but increases in intensity the longer it remains on the skin. Perfect as a day-to-night cologne, Armani Code is the ultimate spicy, oriental fragrance for masculine men.
Armani Code Profumo
Released in 2016, Armani Code Profumu is the younger, more intense sibling of Armani Code, and comes in at number one for us. A spicier, more intense woody fragrance than the original Armani Code, Armani Code Profumo was created by Antoine Maisondieu, and remains one of the fashion house’s most popular fragrances in 2022. With rich notes of fiery tonka bean and warm amber, this cologne exudes luxe, prestige, and maculine elegance.
Armani Acqua Di Gio
If you’re looking for a summer cologne, Acqua Di Gio is an aquatic scent with an intense twist. With notes of bergamot, neroli, and green tangerine, this cologne offers a long-lasting fresh scent that is ideal for everyday wear. The fragrance is deepened with hints of jasmine, rose, persimmon and Indonesian patchouli, giving the cologne a touch of subtle sensuality when worn in the evening. If you enjoy both woody and aquatic fragrances, Acqua Di Gio combines the two in this versatile, day-to-night fragrance.
Armani Acqua Di Gio Profumo
A second addition to the already-iconic Acqua Di Gio line, Acqua Di Gio Profumo takes what we love about the first fragrance and makes it even better. While Acqua Di Gio boasted a fresher, citrus fragrance, Acqua Di Gio Profumo is saltier, more sensual, and is more deep ocean rock than a fresh sea breeze. Using the same patchouli and bergamot as Acqua Di Gio, Acqua Di Gio expands the fragrance with geranium sage and rosemary, with sea notes and incense making it a more aromatic, rich scent.
Stronger With You Intensely
Stronger With You Intensely is perhaps one of the most interesting and unique men’s fragrances by Armani, as it has a very subtle sweet tone, with hints of toffee, tonka bean, and vanilla. But don’t scroll yet - there’s nothing feminine about this sensual, woody men’s fragrance.
With hints of lavender and jasmine, as well as clove, sage, and juniper, Stronger With You Intensely is the perfect date-night cologne. Ideal for wear during the colder months, Stronger With You Intensely does justice to its name. It’s also incredibly long-lasting, making it a great option if you tend to head straight out after work.
Emporio Armani Diamonds
Woody and musky, Emporio Armani Diamonds is the perfect day time cologne for a man on the go. Formulated with woody tones of bergamot, cedarwood, sichuan pepper and cacao, this fragrance promises all-day wear and a fresh, invigorating scent that will be sure to turn heads - or should we say noses?
Emporio Armani Diamonds is also loved for its staying power; upon application, you can expect the scent to last 8-9 hours.
Emporio Armani He
A classic masculine scent, Emporio Armani He is a spicier, woodier fragrance than some of the brand’s other men’s scents. With top notes of Yuzu, sage and cardamom, as well as middle notes of nutmeg, and orris root, He is a decidedly rich fragrance with long-lasting aromatic tones. With a hint of white musk, sandalwood, and tonka bean, this scent is the ideal cologne if you’re looking for a mature, masculine fragrance for both day and evening wear.
Ultra rich and dazzlingly magnetic, Armani’s He is a men’s fragrance best suited to the autumn and winter months.
