Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gio Essenza

Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gio Essenza

Men’s fragrance Acqua di Gio was launched in 1996 and achieved great success since then. Unlike women’s Acqua di Gio edition, which got its flankers Acqua di Gioia (2010), Acqua di Gioia Essenza (2011) and Acqua di Gioia Eau de Parfum Satinee (2012), the men’s fragrance hasn’t been reinterpreted so many times. However, for the summer of 2012, Armani announced the release of the new version—Acqua di Gio Essenza, concentrated as Eau de Parfum.

The new scent is supposedly a timeless and intense reinterpretation of the original. Described as intensely carnal and sensual, Acqua di Gio Essenza is less focused on the marine and more on the woody and ambery accords. The creator of the perfume is once again Alberto Morillas.

The composition begins with luminous tones of cascalone molecule, which captures the olfactory experience of cold and fresh water, sparkling citrusy bergamot and grapefruit. The heart bears floral and aromatic accords of jasmine, basil and sage, as well as explosive floral paradisone molecule, while the base combines notes of patchouli, cedar, vetiver, ambrox, ambergris, pepper and clary sage.

Top notes: cascalone, bergamot, grapefruit
Heart: paradisone, jasmine, basil, sage
Base: patchouli, cedar, vetiver, ambrox, ambergris, pepper, clary sage

The fragrance is available as 40, 75 and 170 ml Eau de Parfum.
