I went to the department store looking for a specific perfume but they didnt have it and I was quite disappointed. A sales rep was sampling Acqua di Gioia and I sprayed it on my wrist. I went about my day at the mall and before I left I HAD to come back and get this! I could not stop smelling my wrist and my boyfriend absolutely loved it on me and he got it for me! I have to admit that the reason I was not very crazy about it at first is because I am a sucker for cute packaging. And to be honest with you the bottle is not much to talk about. I have now grown to love the bottle. It looks very chic and expensive. I just love this perfume so much and I am glad they did not have what I originally went to buy. It smells very fresh and feminine and sexy and alluring. The lasting power is very good and also you dont have to spray on a whole lot. A little goes a long way! I am very pleased with this especially since I got the rollerball and the lotion to go with it.
When I first smelled this I was absolutely obsessed with it! It reminded me of a sensual evening on the ocean, a very exotic scent. It's very strong and only takes a little spritz. Over time I began to become so repulsed with the scent and I'm not exactly sure why! It started to seem so overbearing and quite frankly sickening. I came to a point where I couldn't smell it without literally getting sick! Definitely not for those with a sensitive nose.
This smells so good! Very sexy! It's very strong tho. If you like light scents this isn't for you. I love how long it last on my skin. Very worth the money!!
This smells amazing and unlike any perfumes I've smelled before. I love it. Also love the men's version acqua di gio. But the women's one, even with just one spritz, gives me a horrible pounding headache. I don't know why and I hate that it does because I love the scent.. :( Bought twice and ended up returning after one use each time.
To me, this is an updated modern version of cool water woman. I love wearing this. It has so many different facets, reminds me of a tropical rainforest and the waves of the ocean. I love it !!!
I got this perfume 2 years ago, and I loved it from the moment I sprayed it on. The smell is a very unique smell, in my opinion. It starts off very clean, crisp and aqua, but (on my skin) it changes into a sweeter version, a little tropical too. I love it. I recently bought my second bottle, after using my first one for 2 years! I absolutely love this perfume (and the commercial is stunning too!) and I'll always be a fan of Acqua Di Gioia.
This scent is crisp, clean, and modern. It smells summery, though a bit conventional. I love the mint top-note but wish for more depth in the dry-down. This smells so good on other people in hot weather. Unfortunately, on me it smells like teenager drug store cologne.
Found this when I was at sephora. This was the one that stuck out to me. I love men's cologne, and this made me think of cologne. It is still definitely feminine though. Very fresh and clean, and it evolves through out the day beautifully. The lasting power is very good. I just took out a winter sweater that had been sitting in my drawer for months and I could smell it on it. I ran out of it a while ago and have been missing it very much so
Aqua di Gioia is my favorite perfume at the moment. I have a small collection of perfumes and usually lean towards more floral scents- not sticky sweet floral but a nice fresh floral. Originally when I went to Macy's I had the intention of getting Coach Poppy Flower because I had gotten a sample of it and it was right up my alley. I don't get around to perfume counters often so I took the opportunity to smell around. The Sales associate suggested Aqua di Gioia and at first I wasn't a crazy fan of it because it comes off really clean to me at first spray. After spraying poppy flower and this on alternate wrists and walked around for an hour, by the time I was ready to purchase the aqua di Gioia had me hooked. It isn't overpoweringly strong but my boyfriend can tell if I'm near him several hours later just by the scent.
I am so in love with this perfume, I first found in it Bloomingdales and have never looked back. It's a light and aquatic mix with jasmine petal, crisp rock rose, rosemary, fruity persimmon and warm Indonesian patchouli which creates a masculine scent that is both fresh and sensual. It stays for a while and gets loads of compliments, beautiful.
