About the scent
Fragrance reviews of this perfume agree that it is a unique, clean, summery scent that has masculine undertones that are irresistible for women. It starts off with a sexy floral combination of jasmine and rosemary to get it noticed. It turns heads right away, so it does the job well. And the rest of the scents are what draw people to this great cologne over and over.
After that, you will get a clean, fresh taste of a sort of marine-like scent. This is where the name comes from obviously. It really smells like cleanliness. This is paired with persimmon and fruits for the summery note of it all. This light, fresh start to Acqua di Gio followed by a clean, fruity scent is very unusual for a men’s cologne. In fact, without the base notes, it would be able to pass quite well for a woman’s cologne.
Underneath, though, is where the masculinity lies. It is a popular combination of woody cedar and white musk that with other scents can sometimes leave you with a headache. But, paired with such light scents over it, it just seems masculine and clean. This combination of base notes and upper tones are what has made this cologne so significant and so overwhelmingly popular for so long.
The bottom line
One whiff of this product will tell you exactly why this light, unique mix is so incredibly popular. It combines cleanliness with a light touch of floral and citrus that calm down the undertones that keep it all masculine. It really is delicious.
