    Neither, too popular and too pricey. I would go with Kenzo pour Homme, you wont regret it.

    Hi exogenesis1203, welcome to Basenotes.

    Those are 2 rather different scents, and in that regard, neither is better than the other. It is like comparing apples to oranges. It pretty much depends on your preference and/or requirements. I think both are popular for good reason. I am not in love with either at the moment, but I find them to be very pleasant in their own way. Sorry I wish I could have been of more help. Have you managed to get a sniff of those 2 yet?

    I should of been more specific also....
    If you like Code try Kenzo its more unique
    For Acqua di Gio i personally recommend Quasar by J del Pozo

    but thats one man's opinion. As matthewfoo said, they are very different colognes each have their more unique and in my opinion better alternatives.

    I agree with the Foo, these aren't at all comparable scents. However, I don't like Code at all so di Gio is a better option in my opinion.

    Whichever smells best to you.
    Seriously, have you tried them or just heard about them?

    Try them on you with samples and see how you feel about them after wearing each one 2-3 times. From this point on, this is the recommended method to decide what you wanna buy. If you love how Acqua Di Gio smells like the sea, try Bulgari Aqua. It's the bottle that's green, kinda flat, and circular, like a sand dollar. Highly recommended. Good luck!

    IMO, Armani Code is BY FAR better than Acqua di Gio or any of the AdG wannabes.

    I've not tried Code, so I can't help you pick between these two. I have and like AdG, BUT Versace Pour Homme is similar and much better IMO. Also, fewer people will have it. May be worth sampling.

    I own and like them both. Acqua is very refreshing, particularly on a hot summer day. Code is more of a date or evening scent.

    I agree. I have both and Aqua is nice in the summer. Code is nice the whole year...
    I would go with Code.

    I personally like Gio better because it can be a neutral, anytime fragrance. I do think that Code is one of the best anise fragrances out there.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I've had AdG and i tell you..Go for Armani Code(all round better frag) even though both are veryyy popular.

    It's simple really...

    AdG - use for daytime.
    Code - use for nighttime.

    about armani are way too popular...
    how about roberto cavalli black and bvlgari aqua? are these two good alternatives?

    Default Re: Acqua Di Gio or Armani Code?

    I don't think Bvlgari aqua is an AdG alternative. Although both are aquatic, AdG seems more floral/fruity while the Bvlgari Aqua is sea salt/seaweed and smells strongly of the ocean--not something for everyone.

    Correct. Please do try Bulgari Aqua. It tops my list of mainstream aquatics. IMO, there is nothing else quite like it. Supremely unique and substantial.
