    Default Am I the only one who refuses to wear Aqua Di Gio? Best scent ever but...

    I love the scent, one of my top 3, perhaps even the best of all time cologne. But its way too common and i smell it at least 3-5 times a day on my daily commute. If its not guys wearing its girls. Its a shame cause i want to wear it from time to time but just way too common and who wants to smell like all the other guys? not me.

    I was at the shop yesterday and so wanted to buy another bottle.

    I could say the exact same thing about Le Mâle!
    I was never a fan of Acqua di Gio, though. It's
    too fresh for me ... too, well, aqua!

    I don't like it so I don't wear it. I'm not sure that counts as refusal.

    Honestly, I very rarely smell what I wear on others. I did smell a woman all done up in glam-rock gear wearing Poison the other day, though, and the pairing couldn't have been more perfect. In that case, smelling something I loved on another made me love it more!

    Precisely the reason why I avoid scents like Le Male, AdG, L'eau D'Issey etc.

    I'd rather smell somewhat unique as opposed to every other teenager.

    Best scent ever.. yet you can't wear it because everyone else does. Thus making it boring. How can something boring be the best? ADG is just another average cologne, although it may very well be the benchmark in aquatics, it's not even close to breathtaking. Best aquatic ever.. that's debatable. Best scent ever.. your nose must be very premature.

    ADGFan, you're not a alone. I like the smell too, but i think it's very common nowadays. I don't know why, but i feel a similar aura on Les Nuits de Hadrien by Annick Goutal. Have you already tried this one? Maybe you can use it as a substitute for ADG.

    Maybe is because a lot of men doesn't use even deodorant and really stink, so women got condicioned to associating clean smells with sexy guys....

    Tru Unbound by Halston.. smells exactly like ADG but with more watermelon in the opening. Just Me by Paris Hilton, if you don't mind the dry down, and I believe there's a Perry Ellis 360 that is similar to ADG.

    From what I've smelled of aquatic frags, the problem is that it's difficult to make it subtle (though it can be made weak). There is something about the note (is it calone?) that has a very irritating quality to me. I like the idea of this kind of frag, and I like to think that I'd enjoy Horizon if it didn't have lavender in it, but that note in frags like Unbound for men is just unappealing to me on every level.

    Acqua di Gio bores me to death. A girl bought if for me in high school. It was boring then, and even more now. Girls love it, though. I guess most girls are boring. Final answer.

    AdG is a great scent. I consider myself lucky from this point of view because I live in Romania and people don't wear that much cologne here, so wearing AdG, Cool Water, Le Male, doesn't make me an Average Joe.

    AdG is far from my top 10, but I admire it's uniqueness and masculinity, it's becoming a classic no doubt.

    ...and if you like it.. wear it what the heck.

    Yeah, Perry Ellis 360 Red is a cheaper alternative to ADG. Fortunately, most of my coworkers are women, and only one of the guys at work wears cologne. It's usually Fahrenheit, but he told me he also has ADG, so I avoid ADG at work so we don't end up smelling like twins. Otherwise, it's nice to wear around my wife, since she likes it!

    I don't wear it because I don't like, and never did. Nor do I like any fragrance that is a clone/wannabe/more mature/etc. version of it.

    ^ He's joking... It would make no commercial sense to discontinue their "bread-winner" scent...

    On topic: No, it's not my favorite (best) scent, but I use it occasionally.

    Same here hehe. I rarely meet men who uses colognes but everytime I do, I am not like "damn, this guy uses Le Male, ADG, Aqva, (insert cologne from your wardrobe)" but more like "finaly someone who has good taste". Actually I appreciate some of my scents more after I smell them on someone else because its different experience to smell it on different person and sometime I am just jealous because it smells better on them..

    Anyway, I have a small decant of it for sh*ts and giggles. I'd wear it if I was really bored. Which is truly counter productive for it's intended purpose. I used to wear this regularly 10 years ago before I ran out of it and never wore cologne again for another 7 years. Thankfully, I never bought another bottle since I didn't realize how insanely popular it was when I decided to acquire another bottle of cologne again.

It's sort of like coming onto a music board and posting that the Beatles (or Radiohead, or Miles Davis, or Mozart, or whomever) are the best band ever. Posting huge generalities and sweepinig praise of any fragrance is less than interesting, but to do it about AdG is near trolling.
    I recommend that if you really like AdG, tell us what you like about it. What notes do you smell? What is it about the fragrance that you enjoy most? The fact that others like it on you or, "chicks dig it" really says nothing about why you like the fragrance.

    It might be a character defect of mine (one of many) but I've always stayed away from hugely popular things, whether it be bands or authors or, in this case, Aqua di Gio. Even if I did like it, I wouldn't wear it simply because it's so common. I'm a run-of-the-mill middle-class accountant, for goodness sake. I don't need yet another aspect of my life to make me more average than I already am. I derive great pleasure and sense of individuality from seeking out and wearing niche or obscure frags. It's my one glitzy indulgence. More power to all those who enjoy AdG. I don't hold it against ya. To each his own. It's just not for me.

    ADG is very far from being one of the best fragrances ever.

    I have at least 10 fragrances that I think are just OK that I like better than ADG. And it's not because it is so popular, I didn't like it that much from the beginning.

    And that's why the enjoyment of fragrances is so subjective. One person's 'Holy Grail' is another persons 'scrubber'.

    Easy, big fella. I didn't stereotype anyone. I responded directly to this individual's post. You, on the other hand, have leapt from my individual response to a generalization about how "some of you supporters" treat noobs. If you want to engage in a semantics discussion regarding the words depressing and depressed, we can do that, but I think you're using that as a distraction from the fact that you didn't use the word you wanted to use earlier, which was probably not depressing. Pedantic, maybe? Moralizing? I don't know. I do know that depressing implies that something is making you sad or discouraged, and no Internet forum thread has ever had that emotional weight in my life. At any rate, I did not base my comments regarding ADGFan on how he "types" (much like I didn't make a comment about you typing "serious" when you meant "seriously"). I made a comment regarding the fact that he doesn't seem to know his audience, and that he is making sweeping generalizations and broad statements. He should expect some response to that.
    You are quite right that this is an open forum, and I would think any response to ADG, especially from longtime members (not me: I'm no graybeard here, and I don't have nearly the experience with frags or forum contribution that many others do), would help ADGFan decide if this is the right environment for him. Also, though this is an open forum, not just anyone can use it. People have been banned, and often, for failing to adhere to basic decorum and forum policies. While I'm not personally offended by anything ADGFan has posted, some might be, and further, continuing to post the same types of things over and over again (including 3 threads started in mere hours regarding female attraction to AdG as a fragrance) will grate on members and make them more likely to be offended by seemingly little things.
    I hope ADGFan sticks it out. I hope everyone who joins does, and that each member here has his or her life enriched by the people and fragrances (s)he encounters. And now that this thread has (appropriately) been moved to the Just Starting Out forum, the added lens of remembering that ADGFan is a newcomer may help people respond positively to him, provided there's something to respond to.

    Default Re: Am I the only one who refuses to wear Aqua Di Gio? Best scent ever but...

    I'd like to point out to some of the more senior members that this forum is called 'Just Starting Out' so please, take a chill pill...on the house, of course.

    Back to the thread, I always had to stifle a chuckle whenever someone mentions "best ever (something)". It seems premature. And the logical question I'd think of is,"Why? Are you on the verge of dying? That there won't be anything (new) left to experience in the near future?"

    Probably everyone needs to take a chill pill, but most of the crossfire was before this thread was moved to Just Starting Out. It was in Men's Fragrance Discussion for most of these posts.

    ADG is a great scent. My bottle ran out and that's what started my search for a new fragrance. I am new to collecting but so far I really like eau fraiche and versace poure homme.

    Versace pour Homme is my AdG substitute. It's still light and summery, but more oriental and less generically aquatic.
