Why have a signature scent?

Scent is a personal choice, and your preferences may differ depending on your mood, the season or the occasion. However, most of us will have a signature scent that we return to again and again: a heady, addictive aroma that captures the very essence of our personality. Unlike other fragrances in your perfume wardrobe that may be worn on a whim, your signature scent should be timeless – one that leaves a lasting impression on the people around you. Your signature scent is an extension of your personal style, so give this choice the careful deliberation it deserves.

Acqua Di Giò EDT vs. EDP

Before we delve into the full fragrance collection, let’s identify the differences between the Acqua Di Giò EDT vs EDP. For the fragrance novice, eau de parfum (EDP) is infused with the highest concentration of fragrance oils (about 15 percent), while eau de toilette (EDT) has a lower concentration of oils (five to ten percent). Both the Acqua Di Giò EDP and EDT deliver vibrant, aquatic freshness, but the EDP is the more intense while the EDT is more subtle. So, does Acqua Di Giò last long? An eau de parfum can linger on the skin for up to ten hours, while the eau de toilette may last around six.

Which Acqua Di Giò is best for you?

When choosing your Acqua Di Giò, we recommend testing the scent directly on your skin, allowing each fragrance note to unfold over several hours. In terms of how to apply Acqua Di Giò for intensity and longevity, focus on your pulse points: neck, wrist and inner elbow. Perfume interacts differently on everybody, so pay close attention to the top note (the first scent profile), the heart note (the complex foundation of the scent) and the base note (the richest scent that lingers on the skin hours after application).

The Acqua Di Giò men’s fragrance collection includes five different scents:

  •   Parfum (a reinterpretation of Acqua Di Giò Profumo)
  •   Eau De Parfum
  •   Profondo Eau De Parfum
  •   Eau De Toilette
  •   Absolu Eau De Parfum
Continue reading as we take you on a tour through each unique scent profile and potency so you can determine which Acqua Di Giò is best for you.

Acqua Di Giò Parfum

The Acqua Di Giò Parfum is our bestselling Profumo fragrance reimagined, offering a captivating intensity that unfolds throughout the day. As an eau de parfum, this fragrance can be detected on the skin long after application. Freshness is still at the forefront of this iconic scent, but the Parfum amplifies this freshness beyond its original limits. So, what does Acqua Di Giò smell like? The Parfum blends initial marine notes and bergamot, places clary sage and rosemary at its heart and leaves behind a distinct patchouli smokiness. Not only is its ombre-style bottle sleek, sophisticated and masculine, it is also refillable – articulating Armani beauty’s commitment to an eco-conscious future.

Acqua Di Giò Eau De Parfum

Much like the Acqua Di Giò Parfum, the Acqua Di Giò Eau De Parfum epitomises fresh, aquatic intensity, but offers initial zesty citrus notes that evoke Giorgio Armani’s Mediterranean heritage. Essences of clary sage, lavandin and geranium comprise its aromatic heart notes, before finishing with signature woody patchouli. A transparent bottle and crystalline juice exude classic elegance.

Acqua Di Giò Profondo Eau De Parfum

Deep diving beyond its Acqua Di Giò companions, the Profondo Eau De Parfum explodes with dizzying top notes of bergamot and green mandarin, before giving way to spicy, aromatic heart notes, until a modern, mineral amber accord settles on the skin to mimic the ocean’s abyss. This oceanic metaphor for salty sea depths is reflected in its striking, deep navy-blue bottle and is what separates Acqua Di Giò Profumo (now Parfum) vs Profondo.

Acqua Di Giò Eau De Toilette

If we are to compare the Acqua Di Giò EDT vs EDP, the Eau De Toilette emanates the same tantalising freshness but at a lower intensity, making it a beloved summer classic. Top notes of fresh Calabrian bergamot, neroli and green tangerine soon reveal alluring heart notes of jasmine, rosemary and crisp rock rose. Fruity persimmon and warm Indonesian patchouli offer a sensual base that sits beautifully on the skin.

Acqua Di Giò Absolu Eau De Parfum

Natural elements of water and wood are fused together in this sensual yet classic masculine scent. The Acqua Di Giò Absolu Eau De Parfum expresses preliminary marine notes then unfurls with heart notes of labdanum and base notes of patchouli to signify man’s union with water and the natural world. A natural wooden cap made from ash reflects the Absolu’s wood origins, and the signature Acqua Di Giò embossment harmonises this fragrance with the wider collection.
