Aquatic gourmand? Finally!
Hmmmmm I do like Armani Diamonds more of a fall/winter fragrance tho.
This has been for sale for a few weeks in the UK and I have been waiting for a review to pop up on basenotes. The price is reasonable, £25 for 75ml
Emporio Armani Diamonds Summer for Men 2012 eau de toilette spray is a refreshing and crisp scent, opening with top notes of mint and iced lemon, flowing into a heart of lush aquatic accords, all of which sits on top of a base of cedar wood.
this one sounds very interesting. Can't wait to sample this one.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
OOOOOOO.. And intriguing sounding summer edition fragrance! The mentioning of the aquatic/cocoa combo really caught my attention.
oohhh uhhhh ahhhh ehhhhh
I've never been interested in summer flankers, but this might be interesting. Will give it a try if possible.
I just don't get the summer flanker concept - why they're always big bottles? You're not gonna use the whole bottle during one summer unless you're gonna drown in this perfume. We all know that next summer another seasonal edition will be launched
Its really the aquatic and cocoa combo that made it a must try for me!
Current Top 5:
1. Frederic Malle L'eau d'Hiver
2. Tom Ford Noir de Noir
3. Dior Homme / Dior Homme Intense
4. Thierry Mugler A*Men Pure Havane / Pure Malt
5. Creed Aventus / Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille
Can't wait to see the tone of this thread change dramatically. petruccijc?
Aquatic and gourmand. Two of my least favorite fragrance categories. But, I'd like to have the opportunity to sniff it to see if I like it anyway.
Snarky is as snarky does.
It is definitely worth a test. I like the original one so there is hope. So why does this description of the changes worry me? "the heart is composed of extremely fresh aquatic notes, evoking the sea breeze and the splashing of waves". Yes, finally some fresh aquatic notes . . . that will do it!

did anyone try this yet? I have some discount coupon on this one, but i am not very keen on blind buying it.
I've smelled it last week. It was quite nice as for a summer scent. There was definitely something aquatic and gourmand. I personally didn't like it because I dislike aquatic fragrances nor am I a fan of gourmand scents.
It was light I guess it wouldn't last long on a hot summer day.
