Acqua di Gioia fragrance notes

Reviews of Acqua di Gioia

The lemon opening combined with mint is very refreshing. The middle notes with jasmin, pink pepper and peony are all that I like. But the sugar makes it way too sweet, almost gives me tooth-ache. I was really surprised to find it that sweet regarding to the image given by the campaign.

The longevity is 6h+ and the sillage is moderate.

A curious thing that apart from the sugar, it reminds me of Matthew Williamson Lotus, though they have completely different notes. Probably because both are firmly in the genre of aquatic floral.

I really wanted to like this one for the notes sounded amazing and at first try it mixed nice on my skin, but when I bought it and started using it, I got sick of it quickly.

It makes me feel like someone has spilled a sugary lemon drink over me. It is too sweet and citrusy, but it is not unpleasant or offensive at all. I gave it to my sister who has fallen for it, and I like it better on her as well on others.

ACQUA di GIOIA is an endless source of freshness and is pleasantly brisk too. It is not necessarily a really unique perfume but mixes nice on the skin. Juicy,Appealing,Yummy,Modern, Urban,Light Hearted and Aquatic.

Top notes of lemon and mint are joyful and fresh and fade into a floral heart of jasmine and especially peony and finally falling gently to the sweet and clean base of sugar and cedar as it scent reminds me of a cool spring day with a breeze in the air.

In my opinion ACQUA di GIOIA is a modern fragrance for ladies revitalizes and stimulates the senses.The delicately sweet scent comes in a beautiful bottle that makes it a perfect gift for a Young Lady.It is definitely for SPRING&SUMMER months.


Longevity?Average on my skin.

Minty lime notes start it off, followed by a candy sugary drydown - the whole thing is more synthetic than a chemist's lab. Bland overall and boring. It lasts two hours only on my skin - that might not be such a bad thing after all...

I loved this fragrance at one point, simply because I felt that it had a masculine, empowering tone which made it different from my other scents. I used to ADORE this because I felt that it was unique and original. Would I still feel the same now? Test notes below:

I note now that I must have sensed the lemon, which can make a scent seem masculine. As with most department store frags, it is a very sugared lemon. I also sense a sugary synthetic mint note (I usually don't like peppermint in my scents, but because this note is synthetic it may explain why I don't mind it too much). Some herb is coming through, like pepper, it makes the frag smell messy, like an accidental spill. Very aquatic; more watery than usual mainstream frags. I see that Fragrantica lists "sugar" as a note; not surprised. Something smells "off" now; I suspect it might be the synthetic mint note combining with something. This is a perfect fragrance for someone who wants to stay in the department store fragrance realm, but have something slightly different than the rest. It is different, but only in the mainstream realm. Compared to niche brands, this scent is just another one that'll be forgotten. It develops BEAUTIFULLY into some sort of burned brown sugar scent which I adore.

Verdict: The longevity (which is poor compared to the scents I am now used to) makes this hard to keep.
