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.
hands down Essenza
"When the milk,
tasted like perfume,
you had been drinking from the carton,
and I knew."
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.
Current TOP 5:
1. Gucci Pour Homme II
2. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
3. Dior Homme Intense
4. Encre Noire
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.
I prefer Essenza.
Essenza for sure.
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.
