The scent of the Acqua di Gio is inspired by Giorgio Armani’s holiday vacation in the island of Pantelleria. All summer long, he was just relaxing and enjoying the freedom associated with that particular isle.
After Giorgio Armani finally came up with a wonderful scent that is Acqua di Gio, the perfume got its high quality status because of the perfect harmony of the sweet and fruity components from the Muscat grapes that actually came from Pantelleria, plus some notes from pineapple and citrus fruits, along with the aquatic fragrances.
The watermelon fragrance blends nicely with the freesia, ylang-ylang and hyacinth. Acqua di Gio has a Mediterranean fragrance as well because of the woody and musky base notes.
The floweriness of the top notes is too overwhelming. Oftentimes the scents cannot be separately distinguished anymore because of the mixture of different floral fragrances. However, the middle notes are very lovely, and they are the ones that stay the longest. With this said, the perfume Acqua di Gio must not be judged when it is still a few minutes into the perfume.
Acqua di Gio was actually concocted in the year 1995. The one responsible for this awesome smell is perfume expert Alberto Morillas.
What the customers have to say
Some customers do not like the scent of the perfume. They say that the floral tinge is not merely a tinge because it was far too overpowering. Upon first smelling the perfume, there is a choking or suffocating response of the body because it overwhelms the nostrils. In fact, some even say as bad as getting to smell a combination of hundreds of different flowers and toilet bowl cleaners.
However, there are also those who love the scent because of the refreshing it provides due to the clean and fruity fragrance. In fact, it makes them reminisce about their memorable summer times.
For some, it may seem boring and may smell like a synthetic perfume only.
