Strong, more masculine version of the original
ADGP cuts a great figure in the summer. The citric notes, combined with strong pepper, make a great combination. However, some people find it a fragrance for older men. I, as a 25 year old, see it differently and like to wear it in summer. H+S are very good for a summer scent
I can recommend the fragrance, but I would not buy it blind, but test it beforehand to see if it suits you.

The successful all-rounder
A fragrance which in my opinion fits in every day situation. Whether you have a business meeting in a suit or sit in a cafe with friends, it fits for everything. Whether to warmer anniversaries, where I wear it more often, or to colder days. It goes everywhere and always! Freshness, character and above all this seriousness fascinate me about this fragrance. Just simply TOP!

Awesome fragrance, awful performance!
I cant speak about the first formulation because i have a 2019 batch. This smells like a CEO of a large company. Its classy, its fresh, its upscale, yet its dark and mysterious. This is one of the best designers ever released. Although its a flanker, its one of that cases where the predecessor beats the OG. A masterpiece by the master Morillas. But the performance...jesus. I think this is another great fragrance castrated by the reformulations. What a shame. This one could be a 10/10 easily in my book.

Fresh, Male, Horny
Acqua di Giò Profumo- No- Brainer, which fits everywhere and in every situation.
It is a fresh, spicy, masculine kind of scent that lasts about 8 hours on my skin.
Performance is clearly better than the original Acqua di Gio.
Very well done, bravo to Alberto Morillas!

When a scent and music becomes a headliner...
Hello, dear ones! br />
As the title suggests, I associate a certain fantasy in my head with this fragrance when I wear it, smell it and listen to a certain track. But more about that in a moment...

I have been an active DJ and musician for 16 years. Starting with Hardtechno, I found my musical way over House and Tech-House, now to Deep-Techno and Deephouse. I find this music so interesting because it has a certain depth and gets a certain atmosphere through various filters, compressors and reverb effects, making the tracks of good quality look spherical and dark. But how do music, a scenery and a scent fit together now. Let's just take the 1995 commercial of Acqua di gio as an example, where a track is running in the background of Oval, called Textual. This track doesn't build up any tension, but it still seems clean, deep and almost hypnotic to me, just like the scent and the video itself. In combination with the scent it evokes associations of a wide beach, sea water and the cool breeze of the wide ocean. I have often noticed that certain sounds or tracks can be associated with a certain scent. Let's take Underwater Love from Smoke City as another example... Who doesn't immediately think of an underwater world when hearing this song? :) This is exactly how I feel when I hear the Fragments Remix by Sasha Dive, wear Acqua di gio Profumo and close my eyes. This track is as dark and deep as the ocean and the scent itself. This combination makes me sink to the bottom of the deep ocean. Beneath me nothing but dark emptiness and yet it almost seems as if the ocean is endlessly deep and without bottom. How weightlessly I sink down into the infinite depth that seems to have no end... Wow! :)

Acqua di gio profumo has the same effect on me as the music, mysterious, clean and with a lot of depth. The prelude is cool, aquatic and slightly dark and awakens the described associations in me. Profumo moves very close to the original, but gains a beautiful depth through the incense and patchouli, which make it look much more mature and mature. The aquatic aspect remains always present in the foreground and is accompanied by a little spice.

The durability is very good and I get a good 10h+ with 4 sprayers. The Sillage is very good in the first 3-4h and flattens out very slowly, at least for me.

The flacon is and remains an icon and still impresses with its simple timeless design and a great spray head.

I really have to pay my respect to this fragrance and can only recommend everyone to try it.

Hmm. Possibly pure masculinity. Does that mean I'm not me?
Actually I wanted to write the comment the day before yesterday, but then I thought: No! Don't give yourself exclusively to first impressions, you only falsify the overall picture. Now I'm wearing the fragrance for the third day in a row and I just don't know what to think about it. The scent is definitely good and is different from the standard Armani Code DNA, which I just don't like to smell. It comes across very fresh and aquatic without filling the room unpleasantly and is therefore also suitable for the office. But it's also very masculine and that somehow disturbs me as the process progresses. That's probably why the age recommendation of 30+ is often given. Whether this is based on age or on a supposedly rough masculinity, which you can also represent earlier, remains to be seen. Of course, a fragrance is in a way like a piece of clothing and it is fun to reinvent yourself and to portray something different every now and then. But a fragrance has to fit to a person within a certain range and I am not (yet) there or don't know if I ever want to go there.
Sloppy conclusion: I don't buy it because I wouldn't buy it from myself.

A walk along the Normandy coast in November or just daddy?
I associate Acqua di Gio Profumo very strongly with my father, although I can't even say whether he ever owned a flanker or the original at all. Every time this fragrance comes into my nose, I associate it with a single Sunday morning half an eternity ago in the somewhat cooler season:

Outside in front of the windows, cold heights whirl through the air in all imaginable shades of yellow and red, the leaves that have been lying on the ground for a good month. Until a few minutes ago, the cold and fresh November air was still streaming into our apartment, in the style of the Stalin buildings, in the middle of Berlin. However, the damp-cold residues of the morning air are gradually mixing with the warm-dry air of the heating systems that are now running at full speed - Mum and my little brother always like it nice and warm and cosy for breakfast. By the way, there was something! I should tell dad that the rolls are almost ready and we can have breakfast. In the living room you can already notice the slightly sweetish smell of the baking rolls, which mixes with the light bergamot aroma of steaming Earl Grey tea on the breakfast table. I walk through our long corridor to the bathroom and open the door. My dad looks at me questioningly as he wipes shaving foam residue from his freshly shaved face. Now that he knows that he has to finish his morning washing and shaving routine a little faster than originally planned, he lets cold water run into his open hands and rinses the last remains of the foam off his face. A quick grab of the wooden shelf behind him reveals a clear bottle filled with Armani aftershave, which he applies lightly tapping the face. I still stand in the doorway and watch with fascination. One more short taming of the freshly washed hair and the grip to the ready shirt and he stands in front of me. A smell of freshly shaved and aftershave from the 90s of the last century emanates from him. Fresh, herbaceous and woody describes the smell best. This mixes with the vague scent of an incense candle, which my mum probably just lit in the living room. He ties up his shirt and the last bit of white of his fine-rib undershirt disappears under the penultimate, top button of his burgundy linen shirt. He puts his hand on my shoulder, pushes me lovingly into the hallway and we go together for Sunday breakfast in the living room with the rest of the family.

Another image that builds up in my mind with this fragrance is that of a lonely walker on the French Atlantic coast in the Normandy area. It is a rough and uncomfortable day in the middle of November. The wind whistles onshore and carries fine drops of salty spray, which easily settle on the hair and the freshly shaved face of the strollers. The sea is turbulent and smells especially strong today, and on the sandy beach you can find driftwood and algae washed up from time to time. Our beach visitor seems to be the only one who decided to go for a walk on the beach in this weather. But for him it is the perfect time, as he has a weakness for rough and untamed nature experiences and is no friend of soft washed summer sunshine weather. He has walked the beach section countless times in his life, but even though grey strands are already visible in his well-groomed hair, he is more than impressed by the beauty of the interplay of land and sea at this point, just like on the first day. From the dunes, a light herbaceous smell of the herbs that are brimming with wind wafts over there and mixes with the salty aroma of the angry sea and the scent of his freshly spicy aftershaves. A light drizzle joins the wind and the walker puts his quilted jacket a little more over his cotton cardigan. After he has pulled up the collar of the shirt underneath, he takes a last deep breath of the fresh sea breeze and, thinking of a hot tea with a shot and the novel he has started in his jacket pocket, he heads for the nearby café just behind the next dune.

Now to the actual fragrance:
Giorgio Armani's Acqua di Gio Profumo is in my eyes a very masculine and freshly spicy fragrance with a slightly woody note. The prelude is clearly a fresh, slightly tart bergamot, followed by aquatic notes with a salty touch, which for me is the highlight of this fragrance. The Acqua in the name does not stand for the scent of shallow waters, but for the opulence, coolness and depth of a rough sea. The spicy components also come through at the beginning, although I cannot say with absolute certainty what spices are involved here. I think I smell something pepper and something woody, but that quickly disappears as the herbaceous components of rose geranium, sage and rosemary are already emerging. The latter two components underline the tart bergamot accord from the top note and add a touch of depth to the aquatic note. Finally, frankincense joins in and rounds off the overall picture with its slightly sweet-spicy touch. Acqua di Gio Profumo is in my eyes an absolutely timeless fragrance, which projects a certain degree of alpha-masculinity, but in a very cultivated way. The two associations I have mentioned relate to men over 40, but this is not an old-fashioned perfume. All in all, it is a very masculine, versatile and above all very pleasing fragrance. I would rate the durability and sillage as very solid for a fresh scent. After a day in the office, it is still clearly perceptible, even if only up close. A moderate Sillage accompanies you the first few hours. If you are looking for a fragrance for any occasion, this is the place to be. Good job Alberto Morillas!

4x M: Modern male Morillas masterpiece
Compliments. Someone once said that 99% of perfume wearers wear perfume to get compliments or to stand out more positively. The remaining 1% are liars Well, I definitely don't see the distribution that crass. Apart from the fact that of course absolutely nobody at parfumo.de ever wants to get compliments and vehemently condemns the topic (little wink on my part), many people wear their fragrances for themselves or out of "habit" - or just to feel more "dressed".

As always, the truth lies somewhere in the middle.

In general, I think it can be said that every healthy person without exception is happy about compliments of any kind, but many fragrances are simply too good to be used only as "compliment getters". Conversely, there are also people who don't care from the bottom of their heart how their layered marijuana-pizza-rose-iris shower gel scent is received by their fellow men. All legitimate.

Today's problem is rather that people are increasingly seeking confirmation (especially via social media) to boost their egos, thereby losing touch with reality and entering a vicious circle of dissatisfaction and frustration. No, we do not want to digress here, even if I have to deal with this topic every day. But to build a bridge to the topic of fragrances (or in this case explicitly "ADG Profumo", short "ADGP"): With this fragrance it has been damn hard for me to not fall into this vicious circle.

"ADGP" is fresh, woody, yet dark and deep enough not to pass for a classic blue scent, minimally smoky, minimally sweet and minimally spicy. Above all, it is maximally masculine for me. I probably got it as a gift or bought it blind. I don't know anymore, even though it is not that old. In any case, I must have destroyed half a liter of the perfume in a short time. I have never emptied a 180 ml bottle of any other fragrance. Several of this one. For me, this fragrance radiates absolute authority, masculinity, leadership, and a "I don't let myself be fooled and say this". Even more so than Aventus, who was probably the best fragrance for me because of his naturalness - even though the choice is really hard for me and I don't like to let both compete, "ADGP" was there first.

"ADGP" is an always-on, dumb reach. He rightly leads many high scores. In my opinion, he is not only suitable from the age of 25 on, because he is simply damn good before. It might work best on an adult man, but it is really very universal and suitable for all seasons.

The durability and sillage seemed a bit stronger in the early years, but it can be just habit. In any case, it survives a working day with me, which is quite good for a freshie. But he is not only a perfect companion in the office. For me "ADGP" is also an extremely suitable clubbing scent. In keeping with his quite chauvinistic alpha-character I described above, his performances at night are also very fitting. Enclosed some examples.

Me, the morning after a club night. The Facebook Messenger reports: "Person X (please insert any female name) would like to send you a message."
"Hey, weren't you at Club X yesterday?" "Yeah, why?"
"I just wanted to know who that smelly man was yesterday :)"
The lady looked through the whole list of participants of the event to find me.

Almost every time at work: "Mhm, you smell so good again!"
"That's my favorite scent of you!"
"You're wearing that one scent again, ne?"

One ex-girlfriend a few days after the last meeting: "I still haven't washed your sweater, and I keep smelling it. My pillow still smells of you too."

"Whoa, nice perfume, dude!" - Feels every guy on a just good energy level
And to get back to the subject of ego boost: It's really hard not to jump on the compliment-seeker bandwagon and judge the actual scent when you're really so overwhelmed with positive statements. You read about compliments in other fragrances all the time - "ADGP" has been the only reliable candidate for me.

Morillas has brought the DNA of the original "ADG" to maturity, giving it depth and even more masculinity, and created a timeless flanker that far surpasses the original. The black and silver bottle is a perfect contrast to the bright, "sunny" original. The fresh and refreshing top note is addictive without any real synthetic (even if the naturalness is not creed-like), and becomes darker and darker with time, and smokier with the incense. For a better description of the fragrance process including poems and metaphors I like to refer to the numerous comments and statements below me - some of them are much more resourceful and creative.

It's impossible for me to rub this scent in. It smells modern, timeless, sexy, and just fucking manly. Even without the actually rather superficial complimentary theme. But if you look at it as a "coincidental", nice bonus (which you should always do to not lose touch with reality and the actual meaning of the fragrance), the fragrance gets even better
If one would place three designer freshies symbolically next to each other as the age progression of a man, the whole thing would look like this in my opinion:
Versace - Eros, Versace - Dylan Blue, Acqua di Gio Profumo.
By the way, the latter does not reflect the grandfather, but the grown man, about 25+. No idea how to associate "ADGP" with an old man - he smells too young for that. I have never heard such statements from my otherwise quite honest fellow men. And some of them have been called old man scent. Maybe my skin rejuvenates the scent but also simply ... who knows?
The above-mentioned age progression is of course completely subjective, and certainly replaceable by umpteen other scents.

But for me there is no substitute: "Acqua di Gio Profumo". A presumably eternal top 5 contender in my life. Morillas has done a great job here
Smell well.

Very very horny
This is a really horny and masculine scent!
My grandfather wore it, my father wore it and I'm wearing this one now too Funnily enough I get more compliments from men than from women but that doesn't change the fact that this scent is just awesome, I can't say it any other way Aquatic, fresh, spicy, slightly woody and in the opening citric.
Perfect for office, leisure time or similar
Perfromance is 1A. So far the fragrance that has brought me the most compliments.
Flacon reminds of a hip flask with a magnetic cap. I like it I praise this fragrance to the skies but it deserves it

A Flanker That Improves on the Original...
Acqua di Gio Profumo opens with a blast of orange bergamot and a black peppery sage and geranium tandem with a soft aquatic accord in support before transitioning to its heart. As the composition enters its early heart the peppery sage and geranium tandem remains, as does the supporting soft aquatic accord as the composition is infused by woody incense rising from the base. During the late dry-down, the peppery woody incense infused accord recedes then vacates, unveiling subtle patchouli in the base that combines with remnants of the supporting aquatics through the finish. Projection is below average to average and longevity is very good at around 10 hours on skin.

When the original Acqua di Gio was released in the 90s I, like just about everyone else bought a bottle. I always thought the stuff smelled good, but I never understood its amazing sales success, as it seemed to be missing something with many better options in the crowded genre. A couple decades later with the introduction of Acqua di Gio Profumo, perfumer Morillas has accomplished an extremely rare feat in releasing a flanker that smells much better than the already successful original. The sage and incense utilized here add the missing peppery/woody component to the perfume that counters the all too familiar Acqua di Gio DNA that appealed to many from the start. Now the composition is much more appealing and complete in the opinion of this writer, while never ceding the perfume's already winning formula. The bottom line is the $130 per 75ml bottle Acqua di Gio Profumo takes an already good smelling perfume and by adding a couple key notes makes it an "excellent" 3.5 to 4 stars out of 5 rated one that is recommended to tepid fans of the original that wanted just a bit more.
