Summary: I bought this in 2007 from a recommendation by a friend. I only used it for while then kept it stored until only a few days ago. I pulled it out and put it on after a shower. I like the idea of Acqua di Gio much more than the reality. There isn't any redeeming quality to it other than the average person would find it pleasant. But for me, it brings back unpleasant memories and smells cheap. The bottle is gorgeous though.
Summary: This is a nice citrusy clean scent that eventually dries down to a calm woody fragrance. It is highly overused by the teenage crowd which is a bit of a turnoff but I have never heard anyone say that they don't like the smell. My wife lives it so I will probably always own a bottle but definitely not a "stand out" fragrance in my own personal opinion.
Summary: Actually I'm a fan of Kouros. Since "the King" Kouros and Acqua di Gio belong to very different universes, I didn't interested in this aquatic gem for a long time. What a pity for me... This scent is simply wonderful. The peach comes from the bottom through the fresh-citrus ambiance and that makes the Gio an amazing stuff! This fragrance is not offensive at all and it's an ideal office perfume.
Summary: This perfume is and stays a mystery. I like it for its casual freshness. AdG is casual. It is good for all day use. And i wonder why so many people like it. Because of one thing it is simple and easy going. And all great perfumes are in the long run unisex. That is also true of AdG so as y can read in the reviews, because some women wear it also. Is that all? No! Its an aquatic-flowery scent where the flowery part dominates.
Summary: Ok, so let me give my thoughts on this one... The first time I smelled this, I found it really appealing. There's just something about it that makes safe and likeable, which I still wonder about. Then, I tried other things, forgot about it, dismissed it. As my tastes grew, I called it cheap, common, used the word "aquatic" and put it out of my mind for a few years. That is until recently... when I revisited it, tried it with an open mind, and surprisingly...
Summary: Great cologne! Whenever I´m wearing it, there´s always someone that comes and ask me which cologne this is. Really fresh! Nice spring/summer day fragrance. Stays on for hours! Impossible not to like it, at least! Maybe that´s the reason why it´s been around for such a long time and it´s still one of the most sold colognes around the world.
Summary: OH my. This on a man who wears it well is one of my favorite smells ever. It's fresh and clean yet still warm and inviting. I guess it dates me to say this will always make me think of the prettiest boys at the club...
Summary: Safe option those who like aquatics and mild citruses. It is a boys fragrance rther than being a MANly. Very soft, non offending, soft aquatic-citrusy-flowery-sweet fragrance. You will feel fresh after using this one.. Feels like just had a splash of lemonade made from sea water with little flowers in the background. To be honest this could have been little bitter to make it more manly, than what it is now.
Summary: one of my most favorite fragrances next to le male. smells great and it gives you great sillage and longevity. i use this one for spring and summer. i usually apply 3-4 sprays. 1 on the chest, 1 on the neck, and 1 on the back of the neck and you're good to go. this will get you compliments and even though it is overused and overpriced you at least need to own this once in your life.
