Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioia

Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioia

Summary: Fifteen years after the launch of Alberto Morillas’ trend-setting Acqua di Gio, Armani has introduced Acqua di Gioia, an entirely new fragrance based on a similar citrus-floral concept and inspired by the same place, the Mediterranean island Pantelleria.

Pros: Though the scent opens with a deliciously tart note that feels like a cross between mango and lemonade, the drydown is quite unexpectedly warm and soothing.

Cons: The sugary sweetness may bother those who were expecting more of a fresh aquatic; longevity isn’t wonderful (EDP); a very simple and straightforward composition that seems to lack depth and complexity.

Notes: “Lemon blossom, mint, water jasmine, cedar, brown sugar, labdanum.”GiorgioArmaniBeauty.com

Perfumer: Loc Dong, Anne Flipo, Dominique Ropion

Reminds me of: Nothing I can really think of in the topnotes, however the basenotes recall Viktor & Rolf Eau Mega’s ambery, green drydown.
