    I'm not a huge Acqua di Gio fan, but the flanker Profumo is greatness, so I own it. The others......no. But considering Profumo is so great and it's a flanker, I suppose I will have to give this one a sniff or two just to be sure I don't miss a potential good one.

    I saw this on sale in Spain last month. I did spray it on a piece of paper but I can't remember it well enough to comment.

    I like everything by Armani, except maybe for the original Code EDT (Code Profumo is amazing though). I was expecting big things when ADG Absolu came out, so I'm hoping this Absolut Instinct will deliver what I was expecting from the previous.

    I'm going to keep my eyes out over this weekend and in the coming weeks, but I would guess no. None of the brick and mortar stores' websites have it for sale yet, nor is it advertised.
    I'm going to try to get some samples or at least try a sample spray as soon as I see them.

    This smelled exactly the same as the EDT to me.

    Armani used to do special edition bottles for the summer. This may be a different bottle but the same scent.

    Probably depends on the YouTubers in question.

    I'm not an ADG fan, but I'd try that "ADG with lime" variation proposed earlier in this thread.

    Tried this today at Macy's, did not like it at all, very generic. I like all of the previous versions though, especially Profumo.

    Edit: My bad, I tried the Absolu, not the Absolu Instinct. Lol, too many flankers. My apologies.

    Called Macy's and they don't have it. Is that common for Macy's to only stock some stores with a new frag?

    Department stores don't all cycle through stock on precisely the same timetable.

    I never really paid attention, just assumed they all would get shipments but that aside I'd think if is in store it would at least be listed on their website, sucks is not there yet

    For Macy's it is common. Sometimes the fragrance will go to bigger stores first. Sometimes the fragrance will only go to stores that are big sellers of the same line. And, sometimes the orders are sent to the wrong store, who will keep the order and say nothing. Also, the vendor may not want their fragrance sold at a particular store.

    Hm. I was excited... and will still try it. But my excitement is waning. I feel like I'm waiting for the Chinese Democracy. Moving on.

    Tried this at Dillard's over the weekend. Good but just your typical popular scent that's been trending the past couple years. I like the stuff but it's too similar to, well, everything.
    And I'm starting to see a lot of redundancy in Armani's line. Stronger with you, Code Absolu, Code Profumo…..it's all good stuff but it's starting to get boring.

    I was in Lord & Taylor this afternoon and they had just received this in stock a few days ago. It seems most of their stores in the north east are now stocking it.

    I did pick up a bottle and I'm going to give it a full wear tomorrow. I did smell it on paper as they had a tester in store and there are some nice woods in the opening, it didn't blow me away, but it seemed quite pleasant.

    Absolu Instinct does not appear to be widely available still. Looks like Saks has it and I tested it out at a Dillard's while on a trip to Louisville, KY.
