Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gio Eau de Parfum Refillable Review

Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gio Eau de Parfum Refillable is an enticing blend of fresh marine notes and aromatic woods that’s classically masculine. With sustainability at its core, Acqua di Gio brings all the excitement of the outdoors with a sophisticated, easy-to-wear scent. For me, Acqua di Gio perfectly suits long evening walks ending in a chic cocktail bar as both me and my partner have found it a versatile scent that is understated but sexy. Read on to find out more about the eco-conscious fragrance…


This Fragrance Smells Like…

Acqua di Gio opens with a burst of citrus with top notes of green mandarine and marine notes. The marine opening is aquatic and musky, blending with the aromatic heart of clary sage, lavandin, and geranium. The earthy floral heart draws you in as the base of patchouli adds the finishing earthy touch without being overpowering. At the base patchouli works as a stage for the other lighter notes to play on; woody patchouli pairs with fresh notes and dries on the skin revealing a bright aquatic finish with green woods.


What’s The Story Behind This Scent?

Inspired by Giorgio Armani’s commitment to forest preservation, Acqua di Gio is a celebration of nature with sustainably sourced ingredients. The scent begins as a splash in the ocean with a sea breeze and ends with an earthy, woody forest feel.


You Will Love This If…

If you like marine scents but are looking for an aquatic fragrance with a green twist, then you’ll love Acqua di Gio. The eco-conscious design also makes this fragrance an ideal gift for a man of any age thanks to the timeless quality.


This Perfume Smells Similar To:

There is a slight similarity to the Jimmy Choo Man range, especially Ice. However, Acqua di Gio offers cool tones without becoming as musky as Ice.


Is Acqua di Gio Unisex?

Though any fragrance can be enjoyed by anyone, Acqua di Gio has a typically masculine feel like a fresh cologne. However, if you like patchouli and are looking for a brighter way to wear it, you’ll love Acqua di Gio.


What’s The Longevity Like?

The Eau de Parfum lasts for 6 hours on your skin, layering beautifully for a top-up in the evening to bring the scent back to its full strength.


What’s Special About The Bottle?

The heavy glass bottle is simple and chic, with a luxurious wooden cap as the perfect finishing touch.



Everything about Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gio Eau de Parfum Refillable is designed to be mindful of the planet, with the refillable design and sustainably sourced ingredients.
