ACQUA DI GIO
I'm not a particular fan of "blue fragrances", but, wanting something that was a dumb reach for when I wasn't in the mood for going full on Xerjoff Nio or Acqua di Parma but wanted something that was fresh and easy going, I bought myself a decent selection of small-ish decants from eBay and starting working my way through them. As soon as I sprayed this in the air I was fairly certain I'd found my one, and wearing it on skin confirmed what I thought.

It's an extremely clever fragrance, in that it is undoubtedly a "blue fragrance" but it somehow manages to be "that bit more". It's that bit more natural smelling, that bit sharper, that bit more zingy, that bit more green and herbal, that bit more balanced and refined, that bit more salty and foamy, that bit more earthy and smoky. None of these things stand out massively in and of themselves, but together they have a cumulative effect which seems to be far greater than the sum of their parts. Whilst it is and ever shall be a dumb reach blue Designer fragrance for me, what it does so brilliantly is to take that genre and perfect it without ever getting ideas above its station.

Will I ever grow to love the blue Designer fragrance genre? So far it seems doubtful, as there are so many other interesting and different and jaw-droppingly stunning fragrances out there that these workhorses will likely ever remain as such, but that's not to say that they don't have their place, or that they don't smell good.

So, if you're wanting to smell fabulously unique and extravagant, you'll need to look elsewhere. But when you've had your fill of that and you want a break, but you still want to smell interesting, natural, and refined, for my money this is the one that beats all the others hands down, and if this is still a bit much and you want to smell more shower-gel-like then you could always reach for Versace's Dylan Blue (what is it about that Alberto Morillas?

The most versatile of the Acqua di Gio line
Perfect for sunny days and on top of that it goes very well on warmer nights. I don't think the others are so good for night use. The opening is very reminiscent of Essenza, very much! The two look a lot alike, but while the Essenza remains more luminous, aquatic and floral, the Profumo has a slight darkening, it is denser, probably due to the incense, although it maintains the water characteristics very evident, without being as saline as the Traditional Gio.

The fixation is incredible, it continues after hours and after a shower you can still feel it. The aroma of Profumo is wonderful! Very good aquatic and aromatic output, pungent and refreshing, following the olfactory line of Acqua di Gio flankers, hard not to please. It goes a bit linear for hours, changing very little. But when the incense appears, it brings a slight change, leaving the aroma more aromatic and a little less aquatic, giving that darkening that I mentioned above.

I've been told it's a mix of Bleu de Chanel and Gio Essenza, but for me it's a less luminous Essenza, more formal, dense and slightly nocturnal, although the freshness remains until the end.

Profumo is like diving deeper into the ocean, close to the rocks and ores of the sea. A great flanker of this Armani series that so far is impeccable.

Anyone who likes Acqua Di Gio will certainly be satisfied with Profumo (for me, the best of the line).

closest to the original
I was a huge fan of AdG original back in 1997. It was a real head-turner and lasted ages. Unfortunately over the years it has lost its punch, but this profumo is certainly coming close to the original version I think. Fresh, sharp but smooth too. Summery and classy. A crowd-pleaser and very versatile. It would work just was well post-gym as it would at a summer BBQ and an evening gala dinner. REfined yet attention-grabbing. Lots of contradictions in one bottle it seems!

AGDP is my definition of fresh, woody and masculine.

The opening is just divine, very fresh & aquatic. So often I open the packaging at home and smell the bottle because the perfume is so good. Over time it transforms more and more from fresh to woody. I personally always smell a slight cucumber note in the background as well. The durability is perfectly fine for an aquatic.

In direct comparison to the ADG EDT Profumo is less citrusy, but woodier and softer. While ADG EDT therefore comes across more casual, I would assign Profumo formal.

As a person, I imagine Profumo as an adult suit wearer and thus I would also recommend him rather from 20 upwards.
Price performance wise he is average.

Overall, an all-rounder that goes in principle to any occasion.

The perfect aquatic all-rounder
When I wear the fragrance, I feel many times more mature, confident and steadfast. But not in the sense of toxic masculinity and egotism. And definitely not in the sense of "old grandpa" as some here describe it. For me, this fragrance is a tailored Italian black suit - for my mentality.

Compared to the Dior Sauvage or Bleu de Chanel fragrances, this one is a bit more "pushy" and less afraid to speak its mind. Not everyone likes that, but it makes it a little more interesting and noticeable than the other 2 candidates. It's worth mentioning that the fragrance isn't trying to reinvent the wheel. Nevertheless, he has somehow a unique DNA and is not at all simply interchangeable with other aquatic fragrances such as Cool Water.

The fragrance does what has been done before in some way sort of similar, only much better, with more depth and movement - and even more timeless. There are a lot of aquatic notes in this fragrance. Hence the comparison to Cool Water. However, this fragrance manages to present these aquatic notes (also ambroxan?) with the beautiful incense, soft sage and some rosemary nuances, rose-like nuances in a certain overall spiciness, in an aromatic way very successfully.

Although I aquatic notes like ambroxan just nowhere in my naturalness spectrum as something "real" can classify, and therefore actually do not like, so this fragrance is an exception for me. Acqua di Giò Profumo is a very good fragrance for uncomplicated "everyday" situations. But for going out or special scenarios I would not like to wear it. For such things the fragrance lacks the striking uniqueness, the "special something" and it is also too "professional" for such things. For scenarios such as lectures at the university and also for traveling I find the fragrance but almost perfect! M.e. rightly in the top 50 on Parfumo!

With me, by the way, 2 sprays (hand / neck) are quite sufficient. A certain humility in this fragrance necessary so that it works.

Acqua di Giò on steroids
I love the Acqua di Giò EdT. That first of all in advance. Fantastic fragrance that I instinctively always associate with holidays, sea and count among the aquatic best fragrances, in a row with the For former Davidoff Cool Water. However, the problem is and always has been the soft sillage and short longevity. Normal for a fresh, aquatic EdT, sure. The Acqua di Giò Profumo against it: Top, also in the respect.

The genius Alberto Morillas has actually managed to lift his 90s fragranceAcqua di Giò EdT to a new level. The DNA remains, the fresh, maritime chords predominate. The great thing, however, is that it becomes more herbaceous, greener without synthetics! That's something you have to get right. Many fragrance notes from the original AdG are no longer there, the scent has been reduced to the essentials here: Freshness (bergamot, maritime fragrances), greenness (sage, patchouli, rosemary, herb) and spice (decent portion of incense). This makes the origin Acqua di Giò rounder and especially stronger and more durable!

Sillage and durability, you can hardly believe it for a fragrance like Acqua di Giò, is at a good 6h minimum! The fragrance suits every season and occasion, although I have to say that it comes into its own best when you are freshly showered or transpired during sports or in the summer. The fragrance is Acqua di Giò as you love it with more power

Intense !!
Released in 2015, Acqua Di Gio Profumo is a deep and sophisticated fragrance, intensely masculine, with mineral freshness that symbolizes the meeting of sea and rock.
It retains the freshness of bergamot and a marine note skilfully blended with the bewitching depth of a thousand-year-old incense, a sensual, inspired, almost autobiographical raw material by Giorgio Armani.
Inspired by couture, this perfume is a concentrate of telluric forces.
A dark rock polished by the power of the waves.
It's fresh, clean, with a unique character.
We open the top notes with bergamot and marine, mineral notes...
We continue with the heart notes of geranium, rosemary and sage.
To finish with the base notes, namely patchouli and incense.
It's very masculine (but not too much), intense, modern, sophisticated, with a slight oriental touch.
This fragrance is the perfect balance between freshness and mystery.
You always feel very elegant when you wear it, because it has a really addictive smell.
Not a teenage schoolboy fragrance.
To give you an idea, it imitates the smell of pebbles freshly picked up on the beach, the smell of hot wet stone, mixed with a volcanic atmosphere of salty sea air...
We obviously feel the DNA of Acqua Di Gio for men, but this one is different, with i would say a little more "mature" side.
The smell is neither heavy nor sickening, on the contrary.
It's fresh, aromatic, smoky... I miss the qualifiers...
Personally, i use it in summer as well as in winter.
The olfactory evolution is interesting, because you have the impression that it changes every 30 seconds, like a teleportation to so many different places.
Giorgio Armani for me created the collision of sea waves and volcanic rock.
The longevity is excellent, between 8 and 10 am, with a moderate/powerful sillage.
In short, you will not go unnoticed.
How then is it possible to resist such a smell...
The bottle has kept its visual appearance, but this time is painted black, a color reminiscent of charred rock.
If it is placed against the light, it is translucent and you will be able to see its contents.
The cap is magnetic and the end result is very attractive.
Conclusion: This Profumo seems at first glance a "simple" perfume, but which meets several requirements, such as versatility, refreshment, elegance, good durability, etc...
He therefore represents a serious candidate, even in 2021.
My rating: 9/10

ADG PH In a parfum version
This fragrance is a very good flanker of the original Acqua Di Gio Pour Homme. The scent is very similar and the longevity and sillage is almost twice as good as the original, although i think the cosmair version of the original is way better than the current version. The IFRA strikes again. Man i hate those dopes. Grow a pair and stop the nonsense already!! Parfumo is a nice strong fragrance that lasts just about most of the day which is very good for an aquatic scent. I personally do not care all that much for these aquatic fragrances but every once in a while they are necessary to wear especially during the warm summer months. That's why I have these in my collection and I will continue to have these in my collection.

one of my top 5
Refreshing, woody note. Bergamot, geranium and a smoky base of patchouli and incense. Simply a classic. I think we all know it and it really deserves the good ratings.

It is a little more intense than the original and for my taste more mature and simply timeless. In addition, he can actually be worn on any occasion.
Our Acqua Di Gio Profumo Parfum Test confirms: The Eau de Parfum by Giorgio Armani is one of the best men's fragrances of recent years - not least because of its high popularity with the female sex.

Do you already know the big brother of...
Armani's Acqua di Gio? I think everyone knows the well-known Armani evergreen. Fresh, clean, aquatic, masculine - that's how I think you can basically describe the scent. The AdG Profumo, however, feels like the big bad brother of the original.

The fragrance:
Who knows the original, knows this one too. Aquatic, fresh and masculine but with a certain depth, which probably result from the beigesetztem incense and patchouli. This makes the fragrance a little more masculine distinctive than the original. However, the basic DNA remains in the foreground, and that's good.

Durability / Sillage:
Some rate the durability with 9 or 10 points, I can actually not quite understand. He definitely keeps long, however, I have the feeling that he is almost completely gone on the skin after 5-6h. It's different in clothes, there I still smell it the next day. But, probably partly all a matter of batch. However, I am satisfied with the durability and projection.

Wearability:
All season, all occasion. You can wear it anytime, anywhere. Very suitable for a signature fragrance.

Flacon and packaging:
Packaging is fine - bottle for it very high quality and with magnetic cap ala Bleu de Chanel or Reflection Men, very cool!

Conclusion:
For me, the AdG Profumo is a very well done fragrance with a tendency to the signature fragrance. It is very hard not to like him, because he is on the one hand anyway already known and approved and on the other hand just smells good and lasts a long time. Who just wants to smell fresh and masculine and possibly pick up the one or other compliment, is very well served with the big dark brother of Evergeen Acqua di Gio

Incense is masculine so men love incense. But in an aquatic/summer fragrance? Why not just throw in some leather and tobacco already.

It's good but a tad overrated imo. Bored with the Acqua di Gio DNA I sold my bottle but I can understand the success. Fresh & manly.
