Acqua di Giò Essenza fragrance notes

Reviews of Acqua di Giò Essenza

Seems to me like an EDP thick AdG. I own the original, Profumo, and bought 10 ml of this. Something here, sometimes gives me a sort of egg smell, or rotting garbage can scent. It is not all the time, just every now and again. It is stomach turning when I smell it though. I don't know if the profile of this, the AdG dna without a woody or incense modifier really lends well to this strength. I prefer the original.

Summer in a bottle.
Glad I got this.... especially in the hot weather.
Know I know why ADG is one of the best selling Frags of all time, and this is the edp version.... and quite hard to find.
Lasts all through the work day.
So glad I got my hands on this.

Scent 7- 10
Performance 8.3 -10
Silage 6.5 - 10

Good Fragrance

Fresh, credible retake on the now legendary Acqua di Gio original scent. Essenza smells SO clean, tangy, and loaded with a healthy assortment of basil and sage spiciness paired up with gorgeous jasmine. It has some of the original's DNA in it, yet it stands out in its own way as a bright, scintillating fragrance that is great for Spring and Summer casual outings.

Essenza lasts for AGES on my skin, easily hanging in there from morning to evening even with bouts of warm-weather perspiration on my part! It really invigorates me and instills confidence throughout the wear cycle.

A great alternative to the original AdG which multiply the freshness and brightness.

Feels slightly more fresh than the original but dials down the sweetness and aquatic notes.

The main thing I notice is the improved performance. This seems to really project during the first 4-5 hours and even when it settles, lasts all day.

Personally, I definitely feel like "cologne guy" wearing this, not sure if this still appeals to younger ladies anymore. That said, it nice, pleasant, refined and fresh.

To my nose this is Acqua di Gio with more green notes like basil and clary sage, less oceanic/marine saltwater as in the original (that is probably how my nose detects calone), and increased strength of projection and longevity. It retains the beautiful bergamot of the original Acqua di Gio but lacks the strong lime note as in the original. Some say it's better than the regular Acqua di Gio but I feel this is a sidegrade rather than an upgrade to the original. Sillage is moderate leaning strong while longevity is very good. Overall, this is one of the greatest fragrances I've ever smelled (as well as the original Acqua di Gio, which is my preference due to the stronger lime note; original Acqua di Gio performs really well on me as well).

UPDATE: This is definitely better than the original due to the absolutely amazing basil note in this making it smell green and fresh like you're walking in a forest, and having a sort of barbershop vibe to the whole thing. Stock up while you can! This is my second favourite fragrance of all time, period. It just smells spectacular in every way.

5/5
