I used to wear this in my 20 (before I became a perfume addict). I was planning on picking it up for casual days around the house bc I do love fresh smelling frags only to find that the CHEAPEST I could find a bottle even on ebay was 50 but most were going in the 80 range. For an older perfume that was selling on ebay for 20 a couple years ago? No thank you. I bought the newer version and that is going to have to suffice. I do recall liking the older one a little more. It smelled more masculine, which I love.
The problem with my perfume addiction is that i live in a valley of a mountain in the middle of WV so EVERYTHING is a blind buy. As a result I own about 75 designer perfumes, still to find that I only LOVE vintage poison. Why is nothing ever any better than vintage Poison to me? What comes to mind is the strong plum note. Yum.
Anyway, this one is not dissimilar enough to the new one to pay the prices they're asking online. I was going to get it and I even made a 50 offer for a bottle on ebay but they declined. Now that I bought a Chloe perfume instead, I see that they reduced their price to 50. Oh well. Too late now and I will like the Chloe better for sure. I am going to skip this one bc it does not have enough personality and you can get the same effect at a lower cost with the newer version. Ladies are selling their "used couple time" bottles for next to nothing.

Does anybody know where I can buy the original acqua di gio from in the UK, the one in the green bottle that was around in the 90s?
I love this perfume and is very hard to find !
Many thanks

When I smell this fragrance, I'm immediately hit by a lovely floral scent of lilies. It's sweet, floral, and fresh all at once. In my experience, the staying power is tremendously impressive! One spritz on my wrist is all I need for all-day wear. I'm a person why typically shies away from floral perfumes. However, I absolutely can't get enough of this one! Men seem to love it, too!

I am on the fence. I like this perfume, it's not super heavy, it's young but classic, not majorly sweet or floral. Reminds me of the typical scents I am drawn to. I am absolutely terrible about describing fragrances or understanding top notes and silage, but to me this seems to be somewhat in the same vein as D&G Light Blue. I find it appropriate for work or casual wear and don't think it is overpowering. It does fade by the end of a 9 hour workday, but most of my perfumes do.
I got this as a sample so it's been nice to try wearing it for the last few weeks. Bottom line, I may pick it up but it's not something that I'm super excited about.

Only 3 lippies because Armani isn't cruelty-free.
The perfume itself I LOVE.
One of the very few flowery perfumes that I like, I feel, because this one really smells like real flowers, not made up fake flowers. Feminine.

The blurry glass starts to kind of look worn off after a while. But again, the perfume itself is just heaven.

smells light, fresh, feminine & clean. however, it's either not as strong as I'd like or it fades quickly.

I got ripped off on a swap with this once. Anyway, this is such a great perfume, fresh flowers and fruits. I remember lots of lily of the valley with juicy melons, and it didn't remind me of nasty chemicals. I like the new release they have much better though.

Another floral fruity fragrance I do like, which is rare. This smells very watery to me, like something out of a stocked floral area near a lake. It comes off on me as very floral but with green notes.

The top notes are peony, pineapple, musk vodka, peaches, lemon, banana leaf, and violets. I smell the peony and vodka right off the bat. The violet as well but it comes out after about 10 minutes on me. The middle notes are lily, freesia, jasmine, hyacinth, ylang-ylang, rose, lily-of-the-valley, and calone (which is a synthetic note to mimic melons). Base notes are sandalwood, amber, musk, cedar, and styrax (which are a woody resin).

The name, Acqua di Gioia, is Italian for "Water of Joy".. so cute! I would describe the scent and fresh, aquatic and clean. This a complex and light scent, not like that sickly sweet crap that some celebrities are releasing.

Simply close your eyes, breathe in this delectable scent, and you feel as if you are lounging in the sun on the beautiful Italian island.

HG perfume along with my Chanel Coco Mademoiselle au de toilette. This smells so lovely, and different than all other perfumes I own! Itís like blueberries and light scented flowers. So light yet, strong enough to draw people in. Definitely for any age rage. I myself am early 20ís, and recently got this for my aunt that is in her 60ís. It is not so sweet that you smell like a little girl. And not strong like the typical old granny scents. It is light and fresh but still strong enough. Really recommend for anyone. And a perfect gift for a loved one! I got this for 40$ at a perfume boutique type thing, inside an authentic clothing store.
