    As I sit here, next to our Christmas tree, reveling in the smell of my Christmas gift - Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gio Profumo - I have some very pleasant thoughts.

    We were discussing, on this thread, the pricing of niche fragrances - Andy Tauer versus Dusita. Dorje123 opined that it was tough to enter the market now as a new, affordable Henry Ford, and I agree. But it got me thinking. A bit off ...

    A very high quality fragrance that while falling short of a masterpiece is still really good. I enjoyed wearing Santal Noble.

I don't get s lot of Sandalwood in it, to me this gives off much more of a (as the name would imply) paper
