The ori-Giò-nal and still the best
There’s a lush liquid fullness to Giò.
It’s an orange flower / violet bouquet -- which is piqued with dry accents
and given a fruity floral backing of soft syrupy smoothness.
It’s durable and quite linear but doesn’t lose much detail over time (when applied to clothing) which makes it long ... and luxious, and quite ravishing.
Truly excellent.

Youth mistakes
I owned this fabulous perfume 20 years ago. I bought the 100ml bottle because it was on sale at my favourite drugstore.
I loved it and ....suddenly I gave it away because I began to think it was taking negativity to me! Maybe I was totally crazy! :0
How I 'd like , nowadays, to own again this wonderful and discontinued fragrance, so feminin, so rich, so sweet and warm, with its opulent flowery bouquet. I remember its sillage, maybe too rich and strong for the girl I was, but surely wonderful . How many mistakes I made when I was Young!

Everything but the Kitchen Sink Plus a Million White Flowers
Giorgio Armani GIO is a big billowy bouquet of flowers, a few of the white petals of which have been studded with cloves. All of this is anchored in a substantial base which somehow magnifies the florals over time. Apply a tiny bit, and it will expand over the course of a few hours to take over whatever space you currently happen to inhabit.

GIO is very similar in brash spirit, monster sillage, and eternal longevity to Calvin Klein ETERNITY, and equally a part of the late 80's trend to excess. Just look at the list of notes! Everything but the kitchen sink was thrown into GIO. The composition somehow still works, but *only* if *very* sparingly applied. These fragrances are so potent that they can only be washed away--no need for a purse spray!

GIO appears to have gone out of production some time ago--no doubt because ETERNITY won out. And I suppose it's true: No one really needs to own both GIO and ETERNITY. My own intolerance of the clove note explains why my bottle of GIO remained 3/4 full for years and was eventually swapped away, but I do believe on some level that this is a worthy creation, and can recommend it to anyone who likes ETERNITY.

My own relationship to GIO can be compared also to my relationship with Lancôme POEME: I always felt that in theory they were worthy creations, but in practice, whenever it came time to reach for a perfume, I rarely reached for them. (I still have a bottle of POEME in the back of my armoire...)

The elegant GIO bottle is the same as that used for ACQUA DI GIO, with a thin, almost chiplike shape. The ACQUA version is frosted, while the GIO bottle is clear.

Powerful, beautiful big floral. Embrace with cloves in a spicy oriental dance...
