    Default Giorgio Armani Acqua di Giò Essenza Being Discontinued?

    Rumors are floating around on Fragrantica about this, supposedly the Giorgio Armani website stated last chance on product page. Has anyone heard from any sources whether this is true or just a rumor?

    Oh no! I hope it’s not true! Essenza is my favorite version.

    It says last chance on their website's product page for Essenza. Yet another one of the quality designers goes down the tubes. It will surely be replaced by something less interesting.

    If true, not worried as I still have a full large bottle.

    That's a shame because I think Essenza is the best of the AdG releases, but it also makes sense because people are so happy with Profumo and seem to enjoy it more. I guess it doesn't make sense to have the original, Essenza, and Profumo when you could have just the two and still cover the basic range that people are looking for (light or dark). I have to think about buying a backup now. While I have a pretty full 2.5oz. bottle, it might not hurt to grab an extra.

    have both a small & large bottle of Profumo & Essenza so I'm set for life
    sad to see it gone so quick though, at least they didn't just reformulate it until it was junk instead

    eBay price hike in 3... 2...


    Crazy thing is is this one may just be worth it as its easily the best version of the scent and performs admirably to boot. Interesting how it seems to be sold out in so many places. I wonder if it was discontinued due to regulations effecting a key component or that it just didn't sell?

    I thought there was no way to improve on Essenza, and then Profumo hit. But Essenza still has something great about it that Profumo lacks!

    I suspect the latter. It was never as heavily marketed as Profumo, and once Profumo actually came out, I think it won over the crowd that would normally check for Essenza. And for the average, non-enthusiast, it looks pretty much the same as a regular bottle of AdG, so if they're looking for a variation on the original, I'd think Profumo would jump out at them a bit more.

    What they should really do is give Absolu the axe right now and bring Essenza back. Absolu I could do without.

    Makes sense bud. Odd how the "great unwashed" tend to flock to the subpar stuff en masse whilst the noses who know always root for the underdog. Or maybe thats why they root for the underdog and we're all just the equivalent of scented hipsters anyway?

    "Wow, what are you wearing?"
    "This? Oh you wouldn't know, its just a discontinued flanker that never really sold well...."

    If so, will indeed regret this quite complex and all in all truly improved/better ADG flanker
