    I'll absolutely blind buy this. I did with Absolu and Absolu Instinct and both are to me incredible. Profumo being my overall favorite followed by essenza, this looks very interesting and its ADG, so please take my money already!

    I love original and profumo, but dislike essenza, absolu, and instinct. Ill try it when i see it. But their last two releases have dampered my armani enthusiasm.

    Absolu sadly gets no love, that stuff is such a beast fragrance as well...I put it on and it will still be easily detected the next day. I dunno, that stuff smells so good to me its hard to understand how anyone can dislike it but I guess that's why it's all subjective, just a damn nice scent and such great performance.

    Yes, like they did in each of the last 2 years.
    So I expected that - but maybe not that early this year.

    And of course I like a new name better than fe. Acqua di Gio Absolu Instinct Mediterraneo or something like that, haha.

    Interesting. Will definitely try it.

    I honestly think they've been knocking it out of the park with the AdG flankers. Each and every one is gold. Essenza is the original, but just 'better' and more vibrant and fresh. Profumo is well known and the shower gel dark blue version, Absolu is the fruity aquatic Invictus take, and then Absolu Instinct is there other 'dark blue' in that it smells very similar to Bleu de Chanel to me, just with the AdG DNA.

    This looks like another interesting one. Fresher again, and herbal. Bottle looks great, too.

    Shame they discontinued Essenza, that's all...with it, I think the AdG line is the best in designer perfumery, certainly from the last 10 years.

    Too much? Maybe. But looking forward to trying this out.

    Yeah, you're right. I expected two as well. But not this early and not at the same time.

    Alberto Morillas...probably dialling it again or fishing out the prototype that came second best in the last round of flankers. Thanks, but I’ll pass.

    I don't recall the use of the word "profondo" for a flanker yet. Let's see what the depth means.

    If it's successful, we could then have a "profondo nero" and "profondo blu". And perhaps a "profondo rosso" (which I would buy no matter what).

    I'm more looking forward to this than the new Code flanker. And I wonder if this is replacing anything.

    Thanks very much hednic. Much less enthused by the Code line, so not one I'll seek out.

    Wow...some odd notes in this one. Mastic Absolute can give off a very bitter aroma. It's possibly the note that's responsible for that really bitter edge in PdM's Kalan. I'm not a big fan of it.

    And what on earth is Aquozone? Sounds like an aquatic/ozone chemical, Maybe a bit like calone? I don't know... What I like about seeing it here htough is that probably means this one will have AdG's signature "watery" note, that was missing mostly in Absolu and Instinct.

    Could be good, I guess. Morillas has been very hit-or-miss lately though. You never know if he's going to bring something new and original or just absolutely generic and done a thousand times before to the table. I mean Profumo was great, but Absolu and Absolu Instinct not so great.

    I think ADG Absolu Instinct is great and there's nothing else which smells like that one.

    Am I right in thinking this might be coming close to a sort of take on something like Costa Azzura? Or a kind of Italian cologne by the sea?

    Translated from the German description (English is not available yet on Armanibeauty.com):

    "Discover Acqua di Giò Profondo, the masculine fragrance by Giorgio Armani. The contemporary and intense interpretation of Acqua di Giò combines marine notes with aromatic essences and a woody sea chord that goes back to the origin of the series: the sea. The noble navy blue color of the bottle pays homage to the iconic color of Giorgio Armani.

    Acqua di Giò Profondo is the intensive marine interpretation of Acqua di Giò. Aqua di Giò Profondo is not just a fragrance, but rather a captivating exploration of the depth of the soul that embraces the values ​​of freedom, sensuality and modern masculinity and reveals an incredibly deep dimension.

    Like diving into the deep blue sea, the senses are awakened by green mandarin and bergamot, while the iconic marine notes of Acqua di Giò embody an ultramarine, almost icy nuance. When the oxygen bubbles rise to the top, rosemary, lavender, cypress and mastic absolute mix in the heart of the fragrance. The woody patchouli and musk notes, which exude a masculine character of depth and intensity, finally merge with the salty accent of a mineral amber chord in the base note.

    Acqua di Giò Profondo was created by master perfumer Alberto Morillas and is available in the emblematic bottle made of frosted glass in an elegant, almost opaque, deep navy blue that reflects the depth of the sea that it is trying to grasp.

    An invitation to discover your true self - like immersing yourself in the depths of your soul. Acqua di Giò Profondo is a contemporary, noble and particularly masculine fragrance.

    MARINE NOTES & CITRUS
    The legendary marine notes of Acqua di Giò are modernized by AQUOZONE, a state-of-the-art aquatic molecule for a new dynamic, marine freshness.
    The combination of bergamot and green mandarin from Brazil gives the composition its explosive, juicy and tangy character.

    AROMATIC ESSENCES
    A mixture of aromatic essences that exude a truly masculine character for a deep and intense trademark.

    WOODEN MINERAL
    Combined with a modern mineral amber chord that reflects the salty depth of the sea, softened by patchouli from Guatemala and enveloping musk.

    Acqua di Giò Profondo is available in the emblematic Acqua di Giò frosted glass bottle, which is presented in an elegant, almost opaque navy blue that reflects the depths of the sea that it is trying to grasp.
    In a luxurious and high quality, weighted glass, its intense hue pays homage to the iconic color of Giorgio Armani.
    As a contrast to the intensity of the mysterious depths that the bottle reflects, the metal collar reflects the light and the navy blue metal capsule is adorned with a Giorgio Armani monogram.
    Acqua di Giò Profondo pays homage to Giorgio Armani's iconic color: navy blue.
    In his own words: “Blue like a dense shadow that expresses sensuality. In its various shades, it is a liquid color that conveys a feeling of flowing and noble elegance. "
