    Default Aqua Di Gio edt or Essenza?

    Looking to add one of these as I love the peach note in the edt but also looking for longevity. Does anyone know if the edp comes alive with a rise in body temperature? Any preferances between edt and edp?

    Either one would be fine IMO.

    The EDP has superior longevity. From what I hear the original Acqua di Gio used to be quite something before they reformulated it to oblivion.

    I'd choose Essenza, also due to better longevity.

    I like AdG. Never tried the other.

    My Acqua Di Gio lasts longer than Essenza, but its like 5 years old bottle so it could be reformulated now.

    I've sampled Essenza a few times now and it's quite nice. I still love ADG but Essenza to my nose the notes were better blended and overall much smoother.

    Acqua Di Gio is far better.

    Essenza is a terrible clone. I would expect a lot more after 15 years of waiting

    Essenza is tad bit denser, deeper and more refined.

    Essenza to me is more thoughtful, natural and better done.
