How to recognize GIORGIO ARMANI perfumes.

HOW TO RECOGNIZE ARMANI PERFUMES
Previously we considered how to recognize, batch-by-batch, year-by-year:
-GUERLAIN perfumes ( here )
-YVES SAINT LAURENT perfumes ( here )
-CHRISTIAN DIOR  perfumes  ( here )
-VAN CLEEF et ARPELS perfumes ( here )
-CHANEL perfumes ( here )
-BVLGARI perfumes ( here )
-HERMES perfumes ( here )
-VERSACE perfumes ( here )
now we'll consider another great House: Giorgio Armani Parfums.


(Note: Giorgio Armani batch-numbers table was a bit complicate to decode, since early Armani perfumes are very rare to find nowadays: so, the list could not be 100% accurate, and some mistake could occur)

ARMANI Perfumes use a batch-code using both numbers and letters, 4 or 5 digits, restarting at the end of the alphabet.
First ARMANI perfumes dated to 1982. Batch-code style during 1982-1994 was a 4-digits one;
since 1995, a 5-digits one.

Are you in a hurry?
You can, as usual, check for Barcode on the box: if the Barcode is missing, it's means = "before 1991"
Otherwise, check for the "long list" of restricted ingredients: if you find it on the box, it means = "after 2004".

But, there are other clues:
Simply check the address on the box. If you read:
"137 rue FG du Saint Honorè, Paris."
it means from 1982 to 1991.
Congratulations! It's a Giorgio Armani vintage perfume, the oldest one!
armani
OLD, early address: "nr. 137 Rue du FG St. Honore" 
(from 1982 until 1991)


During 1992 the address changes slightly, so, if you read:
" 129 rue du FG Saint Honorè, Paris "
it means from 1992 to nearly 1995
armani
NEW address: "nr.129 Rue du FG St. Honore" 
(from 1992 until 1995)

Since the Mid-Nineties address is:
"16 place Vendome, Paris".
armani
Since Mid-Nineties: address is "16, Place Vendome, Paris".

Other clues:
if you read somewhere on the box or bottle the word "COSMAIR":
("distributed by Cosmair", Cosmair was the old name of  L'Oreal USA),
it means from 1982 up to 1999.
armani
Until 1999, dist. by COSMAIR

If you read (on box or bottle): "Giorgio Armani Parfums Division Luxury Products LLC"
it means after 1999.
armani
Giorgio Armani Parfums Div. Luxury Products LLC"
(since 1999)

If you read somewhere in the box:
"distributed by Helena Rubinstein" (other than COSMAIR),
it's a very early bottle and it means from 1982 until 1988.

So, briefly:
ADDRESSES:
1982 - 1990: Giorgio Armani Parfums,  137 rue du FG St. Honorè
1990- 1995: Giorgio Armani Parfums,  129 rue du FG St. Honorè
since 1995: 16, place Vendome, Paris.

DISTRIBUTION:
1982 - 1999: distributed by COSMAIR
since 1999: Armani Parfums Luxury Product LLC

COME RICONOSCERE I PROFUMI GIORGIO ARMANI
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nelle puntate precedenti abbiamo visto come riconoscere  i numeri di serie dei profumi 
-GUERLAIN ( leggi qui ) ;
-YVES SAINT LAURENT ( leggi qui )
-CHRISTIAN DIOR  ( leggi qui )
stavolta verranno presi in considerazione i profumi della Giorgio Armani Parfums.

Giorgio Armani iniziò a produrre profumi nel 1982, e per i primi dieci anni vennero prodotti solo due profumi: il cosiddetto "Armani Nero" da donna (in realtà non aveva nome preciso), e la "Eau pour Homme": due profumi leggendari che non hanno bisogno di presentazione. 
A partire dagli anni Novanta, invece, la produzione cominciò a diversificarsi. E' molto difficile recuperare i profumi Armani degli anni Ottanta, per questo la tabella dei codici potrebbe presentare qualche piccolo errore. 
Indizi preziosi sono gli indirizzi presenti sulla scatola e i marchi di distribuzione.

Brevemente:
INDIRIZZI (riportati sulla scatola):
1982 - 1990 circa  : Giorgio Armani Parfums,  137 rue du FG St. Honorè
1991- 1995 circa: Giorgio Armani Parfums,  129 rue du FG St. Honorè
dal 1995 circa: 16, place Vendome, Paris.
Distributori
1982 - 1999: distributed by COSMAIR
since 1999: "Armani Parfums Division Luxury Product LLC"
