Acqua di Giò Essenza fragrance notes

Reviews of Acqua di Giò Essenza

This is mostly a brighter, sharper, longer-lasting version of Acqua di Gio with some of the musky notes removed and replaced by woody notes. There is an increased focus on the salty/mineral elements, but at no point does it become something like Acqua di Sale or Sel Marin. In this style, I find Acqua di Gio Profumo to be a much better adaptation of Acqua di Gio.

Scrubbing furiously.

Seems to me like an EDP thick AdG. I own the original, Profumo, and bought 10 ml of this. Something here, sometimes gives me a sort of egg smell, or rotting garbage can scent. It is not all the time, just every now and again. It is stomach turning when I smell it though. I don't know if the profile of this, the AdG dna without a woody or incense modifier really lends well to this strength. I prefer the original.

Summer in a bottle.
Glad I got this.... especially in the hot weather.
Know I know why ADG is one of the best selling Frags of all time, and this is the edp version.... and quite hard to find.
Lasts all through the work day.
So glad I got my hands on this.

Fresh, credible retake on the now legendary Acqua di Gio original scent. Essenza smells SO clean, tangy, and loaded with a healthy assortment of basil and sage spiciness paired up with gorgeous jasmine. It has some of the original's DNA in it, yet it stands out in its own way as a bright, scintillating fragrance that is great for Spring and Summer casual outings.

Essenza lasts for AGES on my skin, easily hanging in there from morning to evening even with bouts of warm-weather perspiration on my part! It really invigorates me and instills confidence throughout the wear cycle.

A great alternative to the original AdG which multiply the freshness and brightness.
