This fragrance has been around for a long time. I can see why some women like it. Those who are into sweet, floral fragrances that stay on for hours would probably like this. I liked it a lot in the 80's - on other women, never on myself. I tried it on the other day, just to see if it brought back any memories of that era, which it didn't. And it didn't smell at all like I remembered it either. All I got this time was a very lovely floral for about three minutes, and then it went on to a VERY heavy honey/floral/woody phase that almost made me gag. Maybe it's just me, but I couldn't imagine any place or any time where it would be appropriate to wear this fragrance. Too heavy for day, too sticky for night, too cloying for summer, too floral for winter. There is no sophistication here, no mystery at all. I don't even see an appropriate age group for this. The only thing it would go well with is - the 80's. This is a very dated fragrance.

My God, I don't know what I've seen that had so many sharp-toothed reviews of before. I don't have any mental associations with this scent, it doesn't remind me of anything (no images of shoulder pads or power suits). It is massively sweet, in a pretty way, but is probably a bit over the top. If you were in a field of gardenias you wouldn't smell a stronger, sweeter scent. I had sprayed some on the sleeve of my shirt. It sunk through the shirt, crawled up my arm, and wrapped itself around my neck six or seven times. Hoever, the right woman could wear it in the right situation, fabulously.

This is my Mom's signature scent, and has been for about 15 years. It smells great on her, soft and fresh, definitely NOT obnoxious. People always comment on how good she smells when we're together. This one really works with her body chemistry.
Don't overdo it when applying, or you'll be gag-inducing! This is a strong scent.

MY ALL-TIME MOST HATED PERFUME! I'm actually surprised to see so many negative reviews here as I thought everyone in the world loved this except me. I love jasmine, I love honeysuckle, I love gardenia - when they are done properly but they are definitely NOT done properly here. This perfume is the reason I started refusing to be sprayed as I walked through the stores; I hated it so much, it always made me feel sick, and I would soon have a headache. The only person I've ever known who could wear this well is my Mother, God bless her, and even she knows not to use this if I'm coming home. Please, I beg you, don't buy this....find something beautiful and wonderful like Alexandra or Enigma (both by Alexandra de Markoff), or Miss Dior (by Dior), or for something very different try Paloma Picasso (by Paloma Picasso). The world will thank you for it!

Well, it seems that i am a bit of a minority here - but hey, i have never gone with the crowd !
I have worn this scent on and off for years. Not every day i don`t dowse myself in it but i do love it. I know that it has a bit of a stigma attached to it but i love warm scents and this has great memories for me. I get complimented on it and people are usually very surprised when i tell them that it`s giorgio. I have never been thrown out of a restaurant for wearing this perfume so i guess i must wear it well !!

If I saw this cheap I'd buy it just for a laugh. I used to love the Designer Impostor version (If you like Giorgio you'll love PRIMO!) when I was 12 or so. Giorgio! Beverly Hills! 90210! It's, like, totally rad! Goes great with neon socks and crimped hair! Never mind what it smells like...is there any perfume as tied to an era is Giorgio?
(Incidentally, I actually don't mind the smell of Giorgio *ducks and covers*, but I'd never wear it in public.)

If you like the smell of rotting bananas mixed with nail varnish, enlivened with a hint of putrescent flesh and a dash of rank patchouli, this is for you.
There's something metallic in there, too - iron filings? Dried blood?
My all time horror scent. A good friend of mine used to wear this, and in her company I kept having to remind myself that I liked her.
Thankfully this monstrosity fell out of favour after the 80s along with its nicer but equally brutal sister, Poison. I was horrified to see it still on sale though.
Just don't do it.

Would I buy this fragrance? gackkk! yuckkk! eeewwww!!!
You know what this makes me think of? Some picky picky picky Manhattan or LA corporate sales clone whacking out her Power Suit for Power Breakfast but grabbing a stinking cigarette right before she walks into work. At the door, she shoves the butt into her purse, which still has leftover stink from tanning oil spilled in it.
In other words, cigarette, leather, coconut, tanning oil, cheap. YUCK. Somewhere in there, it's true, a floral is buried, but I wouldn't wish such a death on ANY floral, even an Avon polyester sister.
EDITED: When I wrote the above, all I knew of The Giorgio was the oversprayed variety. If this is applied VERY very lightly, it can be lovely. I might even buy a bottle. The problem is, for much of this fragrance's lifetime, it was never applied lightly.

Don't you love reviews that admit they know everybody hates (not just dislikes -- HAAATES) the way they smell, but that they love it and intend to go on deliberately smelling that way? Takes some major security to do that. The kind of security that would allow one to go unbathed, because you could always get used to your own body odor. The kind of security that literally doesn't think their own feces stink.
You could almost admire that security -- from a very, very great distance. Call me insecure, but I deliberately choose fragrances to wear on MY body that don't cause fellow restaurant patrons, theatregoers, loved ones, innocent bystanders, coworkers and employers to feel nauseous.

My Mom used to wear Giorgio and I actually like it. I think the reviewers are right, it has to be worn lightly. Obviously a source of great controversy on MUA but you have gotta try it, it's a unique fragrance.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
I think the smell is very unique, unlike any other fragrance I have smelt. I love that it is strong and long lasting, and that people can actually smell the fragrance. I just cant justify spendin lots of money on a fragrance that no one can smell. I know that I am in the minority by reading other reviews, but perfume is a personal taste thing I suppose.

egad...this stuff reminds me of the 80's...big shoulder pads and all! didn't like it then - don't like it now. Way too spicy and woodsy.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Oily Hair: Brown Eyes: Blue
I agree with another reviewer...there is no need to drown yourself in Giorgio. If you apply in the right way it is lovley. Little dabs here and there and you have yourself a lovley perfume.

Icon of the 80s! I had a rich boss in 1983 who drenched herself in this daily, thinking it was the epitome of chic. It was, and is, the fragrance equivalent of a huge, sharp needle through the head to me. But then, my boss was the boss equivalent of a huge sharp needle through the head, so maybe my memory is confusing the two.

I was the first one on my block to have this 150 years ago. I'll admit that there was jealousy in the ranks. Speaking of rank, this stuff, when I get a whiff of it now, has the power to prevent hugs, stop conversation and interfere with digestion. It is especially creepy when it gets old and turns, so if you are a fan, replace your bottle regularly.

Giorgio is a bright yellow floral classic. Quite strong. My mother
wore Giorgio very well, and it never seemed too much on her. If you like gardenia, honeysuckle and jasmine, give Giorgio a sampling.
Needs to be very fresh though - this one can turn in a few years.

I like Giorgio. On me , the parfum is a nice fullbodied floral with some warm amber/musk notes. It is very strong, and under no circumstances should someone try the "spray into the air and walk under the mist" routine with this one.I recommend the perfume pour, not the EDT spray, for that reason. Just one dab behind the ears and one drop on the wrists-no more than that, with or without the Giorgio body lotion . If applied with a light hand, it's a lovely fragrance-if overapplied, it smells like movie popcorn with extra butter gone stale.

I received a genrous sample of this not too long ago and the other day I decided to give it a try. I was immediately struck with a very strong unpleasant smell. I decided to let it dry down a while, as no perfume could possibly smell that bad. Well I was wrong, after a few minutes I had to go wash it off as I was beginning to feel sick and headachy. I then decided, that perhaps it was just me, and gave this to my mother to try. But guess what? her reaction was pretty much the same as mine (except my mother handled it better). I cant remember the time that a perfume offended me as much as Giorgio. But then again there is no accounting to tastes, this might be someone else's cup of tea but it certainly isnt mine!
