Acqua Di Gio Essenza for Men by Armani Eau De Parfum Spray – 6.0 oz. In 2012, Giorgio Armani recreated its successful Acqua di Gio, refining the original to create a more woody scent with a passionately masculine aroma. It’s composition starts with light and fresh tones of cascalone molecule and grapefruit that bloom into a heart of aromatic and explosive jasmine and paradisone molecule. Notes such as cedar at the base anchor this scent and give it staying power to make you smell amazing for the rest of the day. Acqua di Gio Essenza for men is a fresh, spicy, casual scent with citrus and floral accords throughout. It opens with top notes of calone, grapefruit, and water, creating a freshwater feel with a citrusy touch. Middle notes of jasmine and basil provide a floral tone with a slightly herbal edge. A base note of cedar gives the fragrance its woodsy scent.
