    Default AdG Essenza available in US yet...or ever?

    It seems you can order it online at the Armani store in the US? Is it available at stores?

    Looking to swap…look for my thread on the trade page. May be interested in buying Amouage. Having fun with shower gels. If you want to get rid of yours or swap for frags, give me a shout!

    Why would Armani sell Acqua di Parma Essenza?

    Saw testers in Nieman Marcus (Short Hills Mall, NJ) and in Bloomingdales (SoHo, NYC), so I assume it is available at these places.

    Haha! Come on buddy, you get what he's saying.

    OT: I haven't seen it in any stores yet.

    I've only seen it in the duty free in Miami so far. I tried it, it immediately went to a skin scent so I didn't purchase it. I liked what I smelled at first, but it just didn't last on me for more than 15 minutes.

    At least you can buy it at the Armani website. I've yet to see it anywhere else.

    I bought it in the US...in Hawaii! They had it at the Neiman Marcus there and as soon as I saw it I bought the 2.5oz bottle!

    Haven't seen it yet, but heard it was a weak EdP version of the original at 3 times the cost.

    I saw a 2.5oz NIB for like $75 shipped on eBay. Quite a steal.

    False. This stuff PROJECTS. It's stronger than the original and lasts a long time. It's also much smoother and less citrusy.

    Got it at Bloomingdale's. Went with the 75ml.
    It's good, but I won't pay $168 +tax for the 6oz.
    Test it, then if you really like it, ebay it.

    I got a tester for 60 $ . Even for that price, i won't buy it again .It's the same as the original ( minus the rose !) and sits pretty close to the skin .

    Longevity is decent though .

    I thought I saw it at Macy's. Not sure. I know I saw it in one of the department stores here.

    Tried it again today and it didn't last and stayed close to the skin. Still like the original better.
