Armani Acqua Di Gioia is a lightweight, refreshing and sophisticated perfume for those who want something a bit understated with their fragrance. The bottle comes in a simple glass bottle with a light green colour that is reminiscent of the ocean. It's a scent that I would recommend especially during the spring and summer months. It has notes like lemon which is bright and energising, mint gives it a refreshing aspect and the brown sugar adds a bit of sweetness. It makes me feel like I'm on a holiday in Italy and evokes feelings of happiness. If you like fragrances like D&G Light Blue than this would be your type of fragrance. I'm really drawn to fresh, clean scents and this is one of those. It's not too predictable but does have some depth to it so it's not too basic. The longevity of the fragrance is pretty good as it's EDP which means it's more concentrated than EDT. Just one spritz and you're good to go giving you that elegant yet effortless vibe.
My all time favourite perfume!! I was always a fan of the men's version but never realised they had a women's version. The day I discovered it was the best day ever! Every time I wear this fragrance it just makes me feel so fresh and chic. Everyone compliments me on it, it lasts all day, and it's not too expensive. Every time I run out I just stock up on more. Highly recommend this beautiful product!
Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gioia is one of my all time favourite perfumes. It is also one of the only scents that doesn't give me a headache, as it is not too strong and overpowering. The scent is light, fresh, with notes of crushed mint and aquatic scents. I love the bottle colour and shape too. I would recommend this to any woman who would like a light, refreshing, subtle scent. I love it and so does my mum, so it would suit any age.
I love wearing this perfume when I want a strong, but refreshing fragrance on my skin that isn't too feminine. I like how it isn't typically too floral, musky, fruity or sickly sweet when I want a powerful lady boss like scent that are opposite to those type of female aromas
I love the smell of this perfume, light, feminine and sexy. I have a sample and after I finish it I will definitely splurge on the full size. It has that modern women kind of scent.I will highly recommend it to anyone who wants very light but remarkable scent.
I love this fragrance! Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gioia has a nice fresh, sweet scent and is not overpowering. The fragrance always makes me feel fresh, pretty and completes my looks. A few sprays of this on pulse points lasts me throughout the day, I haven't needed to reapply it.
The bottle is small, clear and has a nice curved shape to it, easy to fit in a bag 'on the go' with a cap that locks into place (not going to spill everywhere).
I haven't found any cons with this product, other than if you prefer other scents e.g. floral or musk. I feel this product would suit anyone really, but I would recommend it to 20-35 yrs as it has this nice fresh-sweet scent which will suit any occasion either that be at work, out shopping or out with friends, dates etc.
- Fresh-sweet scent

Armani Acqua Di Gioia is the scent of summer and it's so incredibly refreshing and light. I would categorise it as being a citrusy, fresh and floral fragrance that would suit women of all ages. If you are picky with your fragrances I would recommend trying this out as it's quite safe as far as fragrances go. It's not overpowering and the notes are rather clean like lemon, mint, brown sugar, peonies and jasmine. The light green/blue colour on the bottle reminds me of the ocean and the scent is like a sea breeze.
Guilty admission...yes,i do (occasionally,but shamefully) fall victim to marketing hype.It's got to be some good marketing,but when i do fall,i fall HARD.THIS,dear reader,was one of those times.
Over in Europe,summertime in Austria,and i saw the most amazing pictorial ad for a fragrance i can ever remember.The woman's eyes were amazing...and i had been drawn in.This fragrance was the resulting purchase.
Ad aside,i had to actually like the juice inside to want to put down my hard earned...and i did (besides,hubby had the "pour homme) version,and i thought "we can smell like twins"...how romantic right ? HAHA).But what does this offering from Signor Armani actually smell like ? Well,like Portofino in summer,by the ocean...with style.With its notes of crushed mint leaves,limone primo (this,together with the mint makes for a freshness that i adore...and a tiny touch reminiscent of a fav cocktail of mine - a Mojito), fiore,aquatic green accord,pink pepper, jasmine sambac (floral notes to add a little feminine to the masculine previous notes),peony,cedar,labdanum and brown sugar accord,this feminine but strong and slightly masculine scent is classic Italian but in a sexy,French kind of way.This fragrance is where the Mediterranean Sea (the "salty" undertones you get at first application) meets the sun and earth (the freshness and lightness of the lemon,intertwined with the earths offering of herbaceous labdanum and floral bloomings of the jasmine),come together to create a sense of happiness,serenity and sheer,unbridled joy (which FYI,is what this fragrance's name means..."water of joy",which is fitting,as the precious liquid is itself is a delicate,watery hue of green-y blue).
As for the longevity of this elixir of summertime joy,you will be rewarded with around 7 hours of Giorgio Armani brilliance (thanks to the fact that this is an EDP,not the EDT of the men's version),that stays pretty true to what you began with at the start of your day.
Lastly,what of the dwelling this beauty is housed in? Well,the flacon is true to it's aquatic inhabitant...all fluid like lines,very "smoothed edged rock",just like the many a rocky beach found in and around the Mediterranean coast,and topped with an almost emerald like "blue green" crown (so fitting for designer royalty) and embossed in black lettering.
At around $80 for 30ml,this is not a "cheap and cheerful" scent...neither is it meant to be.This is Italian design by the man who gave us the blazer as it should be...but do a little online hunting,and you can certainly get this for a more "explainable" fiscal outlay.Summer is on the horizon...celebrate all that means (as i will) by adding this to your fragrance collection.
TIP:As this is an aquatic based scent (and not overtly "girly"),you could share this with the man in your life as well...with no "I'm not wearing that girly smell" response to fall back on for him.And do you know what THAT means ? You can get the 100ml and not have any guilt ridden buyers remorse for dropping (as i just investigated),around $150.Hey,it's only economic sense.
i purchased this scent as a 21st birthday present as it was a good price and giorgio armani always does a luxe, quality fragrance. i only smelt this via a sample but totally loved it. Its a really feminine, fresh, clean scent that does not overpower. With brown sugar, jasmine and mint, its a unique, sensual scent. The bottle is gorgeous so simple yet elegant, understated just like the scent. packaged beautifully and with the giorgio armani signature this makes a lovely gift and i would recommend it as it was a hit as a gift.
This is what a mermaid smells like sitting in the summer sun fresh out of the ocean. This fragrance is 70% Davidoff Cool Water and 30% Ralph Lauren Ralph. It is an universally liked perfume with aqua and green notes. It would be a safe gift option that most people wouldn't find it offensive as it has a fresh out of the shower vibe and it's a classy product. If someone was new to wearing perfume and they wanted an introductory fragrance this would be a safe choice. When I smell it it's not specifically for a young or old audience, it's universally fresh. I would wear it in spring and summer for everyday occasions such as going to work. For me it was a strong fragrance and I wouldn't be liberal with the number of sprays, like I am with some other fragrances. A light spray is all that's needed and it lasts most of the day.
Safe gift option
Pleasant and inoffensive
Fresh and clean
Great for all ages
Every day fragrance
Strong and long lasting for me
For me it's too similar to Cool Water
Not your sexy statement perfume
Giorgio Armani's Acqua di Gioia comes in a square shaped glass spray bottle with rounded edges for a touch of femininity. The bottle is topped with an aqua blue tinted dome shaped cap. The liquid perfume inside is tinted a gorgeous aqua blue like the cap and as you use up the perfume you can see the level of the aqua tinted liquid lower down the belly of the clear glass bottle.
The fragrance is an EDP and from the moment I sprayed this on I was sold. The fragrance is clean, fresh, sweet, floral, and slightly citrusy. It has notes of Jasmine, mints, lemon, pepper, sugar, peony and cedar. It is heavy on the musk but notes of floral, a hint of sweetness and citrus, mint, cedar and pepper elevate it and gives it a youthful, feminine, breezy vibe that is very obviously marine inspired like its name suggests.
The EDP lasts a good 6-8 hours and has good silage but is never overpowering making it perfect for daytime during the warm Spring and Summer months. It is appropriate for both work and school and the breezy, lightweight scent won't offend anyone in close proximity. To the contrary, I have received compliments and inquiries about the perfume from people around me when I wear this.
Lasts a good 6-8 hours
Silage is good, not overpowering
Perfect daytime perfume in Spring/Summer
Cute bottle with fresh, clean lines
The whole package says it all. This is a sexy masculine scent it is fresh, clean and definitely unisex. I love the bottle and I love the pale soft green look of the perfume. The bottle is a great shape,clear glass with a decent spray. I have made this my signature scent and often receive compliments and asked what I m wearing as its not a common scent.
I was given a bottle of GIORGIO ARMARNI ACQUA di GIOIA EDP as a birthday gift and fell in love with it. The scent is not overpowering but has a "Feel Very Good" effect on me.
