    It's available on eBay if you're willing to pay the $45 mark-up.

    Oh well.

    I'm just looking to take a sniff in the store (Sephora, etc). I try not to blind buy. And I definitely don't blind buy with an outrageous markup.

    Just wondered if anyone had heard anything about a release date here.

    Just a head's up Acqua di Gio Essenza is at least available on fragrancenet for a very good price. I ordered a big ass 6 oz yesterday for seventy something bucks (with the 20% coupon). Still haven't seen this stuff in retail stores though, and the price Armani charges is ridiculous.

    Thanks for the heads up. Didn't want such a huge bottle, but with the 20% coupon, this is a great deal compared to Armani's website.

    I saw this at Bloomingdales in SOHO, NYC as well.

    It makes sense that they would get this in stores before the Christmas shopping season.

    I tried this the other day. I imagine the differences are subtle compared to the original ADG as nothing jumped out at me. Side by side comparison I think would be needed. That said it smelt good.

    Tried this at Neiman Marcus a few days ago, was not impressed. It was so "blah" that I didn't even want to spray it on me since there were about 200 frags I would rather try on. Very disappointed, I "like" AdG, not enough to wear it myself and because I think it is fairly weak, so I was hoping this would be a stronger version, but from my one sampling of it I would say almost the opposite is true.

    I probably won't be wearing the original ADG anymore now that I have Essenza. It is a much smoother take on ADG. It has a fruitier top note but dries down similarly. It projects even more than the already good projecting ADG. It also lasts all day. I recommend it over the original, but I don't recommend you pay retail price for it since it can be had for much cheaper online. Acqua Di Gio was a 10, but ADG Essenza is an 11.

    For the price tag would it be recommended to snatch this one up ?
