    Default Acqua Di Gio Aftershave Lotion

    Sorry for asking such a silly question, but I'm new to the whole fragrance scene, and thought I'd buy myself a bottle of ADG when I went to buy a friend a gift box of HB Deep Red, but the store accidently gave me the aftershave lotion version instead of the EDT, as I found out once I got home, because it was cheaper than what I saw. I was wondering what are the differences between the EDT and aftershave, and in particular for ADG, is the aftershave a spray or what? I don't want to open the package, as that may void a possible refund. Many thanks.

    If it says aftershave then it is most probably a splash version. These normally contain soothing and cooling ingredients that benfit your skin as you are supposed to splash them on your skin. The eau de toilette version normally comes in a bottle with a spray function. These contain more fragrance and are generally stronger than the aftershave. Having a spray also allows you to direct the fragrance onto your clothes which also lasts longer. I have seen aftershave sprays (but these are rarely seen) and eau de toilette splash bottles (which are normally mini bottles). Aftershave is also cheaper than eau de toilette versions. hope this helps.

    Yeah, was thinking that, but was wondering about ADG in particular, but I guess if it says aftershave lotion, then it's splash right?

    Yeah. If it's a lotion you would splash it on. If it's still sealed then you could probably exchange it for the eau de toilette spray but it might be a few quid more.
