    Default New Fragrance: Acqua di Gio Essenza?

    Is this a new fragrance release? If so, it's the first I am hearing about it......

    From ozmoz.com:

    "With Acqua di Gio Essenza, Armani signs a new olfactory reinterpretation of Acqua di Gio. This ‘Essenza’ version has a distinctly different composition: less sea-breezy, the opus is more sparkling, dazzling even… as well as having a woodier, more ambry dry-down. The house has described it as an intensely sensual fragrance that stays close to the skin. The bottle is getting a new look too: no longer opaque, it’s going transparent and has been graced with a new magnetic gray cap."

    I wonder if they are confusing this with Acqua di Gioia Essenza?

    With the "flanker craze" of at least the last decade, I'm amazed it took so long (about 16 years) for the best selling men's cologne of all time to release it's first flanker.

    Didn't they get the memo .... ??

    Expect it smells like something for more than 1 hour, or it will be like its predecessor.

    I don't care if it smells exactly like ADG, I will be adding this to my collection regardless. I don't care if it smells like the piss that Kouros took while binge drinking on Grey Flannel. ADG was my first fragrance love and even though I've had other lovers, I will always have a spot in my heart (and in my wardrobe) for ADG.

    I was surprised that took Armani so long to "Flanker" this one.
    We shall see, Acqua di Dio is a pretty ordinary cologne, though I can not say that it smells bad.

    A little ashamed to admit I'm actually somewhat curious.
    I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?

    Apparently this will be in an EDP concentration. I am extremely intrigued and can't wait to sample this.

    I'd put my nose in it. Although "close to the skin" doesn't excite me.
