Misleading name, more like Cozy di Gioia!
I have now tried all di Gioia fragrances and this shares with the ,,Original" the 1st place. At the first sprayer he came to me unexpectedly known, more about this later ;)
The fragrance starts for me in a floral cloud and the typical-fresh di Gioia feeling, especially lily of the valley and jasmine strike, rose I do not smell out. The pear is more creamy than fruity, but noticeable. After a few moments, it all adds up to a very pleasant and restrained ,,clean" scent. With me, no toilet stone / air freshener scent develops, which I take rather as tart and penetrating was, Ocean is restrained and shy.
What Armani was thinking with the fragrance name is beyond me. If I had to name the fragrance it would have become something like Cloud or Cozy di Gioia :D The fragrance is soft and floral rather than maritime and fresh, I expected something more tart and thunderous with the name.
The durability is okay, the sillage perceptible but not intrusive. An absolute office -and everyday fragrance. If I do not know in the morning what I'm after, the handle automatically goes to one of the di Gioia fragrances, which always go :) Ocean is also a nice companion for Sundays, snuggled up on the couch. For the pub or to go out to eat, he would not be sexy enough for me.
The bottle is beautiful and kept simple as usual.
Now let's move on to the similarity with one of my other perfumes, which struck me immediately.
Givenchy Irresistible smells very very similar, but is rosier in the drydown and overall fruitier than Ocean di Gioia. A look at both fragrance pyramids confirms my nose. I have kept Ocean anyway because I like rose scent, but not every day and Ocean is simply something "more neutral" :)
