Fresh Woody Aquacitrus Clone
Acqua di Gioia Eau Fraîche has excellent sillage about 2 meters on me, initial- which is an unfortunate thing to discover when you decide to spritz yourself liberally with this before going to the gym on a hot humid day. It has that notable Acqua Di Gioia Zest and freshness on top. I'm not very familiar with the other flankers, so I can't offer a comparison, but as a stand alone fragrance, this is no wall flower. The slightly sultry Ylang and Jasmine tea and a good bit of musky cedar in the base, as well. I can detect a bit of the sugary note, but this is not cloyingly sweet by any means, it stays clearly in the floral woody citrus category with an aquatic splash through out. It has been on me for 6 hours so far, through a workout and the cedar and musk are still hanging out. I doubt they will survive my impending shower; though I've enjoyed our little tête á tête and we shared some good times on the treadmill, I am ready to say farewell to this one, it's a bit too unremarkable for my taste.
