    Thanks for the info Vin on this new release.

    The colour and the cap made from wood tells me it is perhaps a bit (w) oud (y)?

    If they were going for an oud note they would probably ram it down our throat. More likely to have the strong woody notes found in Invictus Intense, the type that smell like burnt rubber.

    Oh not again. Another flanker? After the disappointment of the special edition I don’t know what else could happen...

    I am not feeling the color of the bottle , does not resonate with the oceanic vibe of the acqua di gio series and reminds me of Stronger with you which I do not like at all.

    Interested to see how this smells/performs. There's always room on my rotation shelf...

    Is it just me or is the whole bottle concept a carbon-copy of Kenneth Cole Signature from a decade ago?

    It too had a woodgrain cap, clear bottle, and amber juice.
    It's really quite pleasant, except for the smell (...)

    I already have mixed feelings about this. I like the color of the juice, but am wary of how the woods and aquatic notes mix. Profumo was a bit of a dog’s breakfast to my nose and would’ve been better without the aquatic notes.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    Agree 100%. Hopefully this is an improvement over Stronger With You...because I'd shudder to think of the alternative.

    Between the original, essenza and profumo, they haven't made a flanker that I dislike. Very interested in this.

    Acqua Di Gio Absolu is the newest member of the Acqua Di Gio family from Giorgio Armani. The scent is made up of natural wood nuts, sour fruit notes and fresh sea nuts that together create a fragrance sensual, elegant and warm scent.
    Translation from a Danish site.

    Wood nuts, sour fruit, and sea nuts......Oy. Something must have gotten lost in translation.

    So, a more "fruity" AdG? I bet it's a certain orange note that's become popular in the last few years.

    Will definitely sniff and hope for the best, but I'm happy with their original and astounding release Stronger with You. Bravo on that one, but why tread backwards with a flanker...
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I'm at least intrigued enough to give it a sniff and hope for the best. Thanks for the info!

    My feelings exactly. At this point they're just abusing us.

    Or the right bottle if you're sitting on twice as much as people will buy.

    Truly woody AdG is just weird to me. But they've really kept the good ones coming, so who knows.

    Tend to agree.

    I'll order this one when it becomes available anyways. It may be a winner.

    I hope it's heavy like Profumo is on my skin. Fruity is fine, but please for the love of God don't let it have any saccharin sweetness.
