As a woman, i tried to spend money on this men perfume. I blind-bought this, and at the first smell i really don't like it. It's like i'm hating myself for wasting lots of money for this. But then maybe because i'm not used to this kind of smell. I'm a perfume lover, i collect perfumes and love wearing all of them. I just kept smelling this perfume until i already got used to it. But then still, there are still times that i hate it or gave me headache sometimes. That's why i just let my dad where it, or even i wear it also whenever i wear boyish outfits.

I have to leave one for this as it is the ONLY cologne my hubby will use! He's very sensitive to scents, much worse than me. I'm not sure how everyone associates it with teenage boys and those guys who drench themselves in cologne. Maybe it's just me but I haven't met many other people, especially boys, that use it. It's definitely not Axe! Lol! I think this is one of, if not THE best manly scent out there. I work in the fragrance industry too! Anyways, I love it on him, I even use it myself on occasion. It's a bit pricey but one of the few I have, and will purchase again. Highly recommended.

I'm female, I have a son in his 20's, and this is currently my very favorite men's cologne.

I've smelled a lot of men's cologne in my time -- on the men I dated long ago, the men I've worked with or passed in public -- and my husband and son have each worn many great colognes.

I've loved Givenchy Pi (soft powdery vanilla -- used to be my favorite men's cologne), Gendarme (fresh clean skin-musk), and Fresh Cannabis Santal (deliciously woodsy), for 3 examples. I've also loved straight-up patchouli and musks on men who've swooshed past me in public (swoon).

But these days, good old Acqua di Gio is the one that always stops me dead in my tracks, turns my head, and I've often asked, "What are you wearing? It smells great!" -- only to find out that it's Acqua di Gio.

Or even, sometimes it's Parfums de Coeur's Mascolino, which is their knock-off of Acqua di Gio. At $3.99 for a 4oz "Fragrance Deodorant Body Spray" aerosol can from Rite Aid -- it's practically a spot-on imitation -- and this body spray lasts very well.

I have a massive perfume collection, but I wear these myself sometimes -- either Acqua di Gio or PdC Mascolino -- just because I love the scent so much. I have owned & worn the female versions -- both (old) Acqua di Gio for Women and (new) Acqua di Gioia -- and did not like either one very much -- the men's is soooo much better.

I've worn A*Men occasionally and a few other men's colognes -- and a bunch of unisexes, always -- but AdG is really the only exclusively men's cologne that I currently occasionally wear, and I think it works on me. A beautiful blend of fresh and woodsy -- and really, when I catch a whiff on someone else, my first impression is that it smells woodsy, more than anything else. And I swoon -- it's magical, to my nose. I just love it!

I can understand the popularity of this cologne. It's been described by all those adjectives men look for in a scent: fresh, clean, aquatic, sporty, sexy. The problem is that EVERY SINGLE MAN I've ever detected this on (probably hundreds over the years), always overdoes it and the result is screechy, sharp, metallic, eye-watering, teenage locker room kind of scent. It doesn't smell fresh or sexy to me. If I sit by someone wearing this in a restaurant, movie theater, or any other confined space - I immediately get up to change seats. I just can't tolerate it, even in small doses. I think it's especially popular in corporate environment - it's deemed as a safe, popular choice for men. Being stuck in a conference room with this scent assaulting my space is the worst! I hope another cult classic male scent will edge out this one soon.

I bought this for my boyfriend and absolutely love it on him - he smells delicious and fresh. Would definitely repurchase - it's friskiness in a bottle for me!

A great clean, crisp and sophisticated scent great for 20-30 somethings!
I love this, and use this as a work scent! But I use the eau de toilette and don't rate the apres rasage much.

I've had a bottle of this for sooo long, never runs out! I use everyday too. Really nice smell, not quite citrus or woody but very fresh. Like late Spring. Bit exp mind you, but worth it. It is my all time favourite. I think those negative reviews are smelling the female version (not nice!). Until recently this was world's best-selling men's fragrance for over a decade. I appreciate why!
