Last weeks Glamour magazine contained a slew of free perfume samples, and I seriously only buy this magazine for these samples, and of course to see whats new in the makeup department.
Once I browse through and tear out pages of ‘must have’s’ I pass the book along to my dear mom. I thought she was going to go wild over the limited edition of DK Cashmere Mist the way I did, instead though she yanked out the sample of Armani Acqua Di Gioia, Perfume for Women, and ended up coming home with it a few days later.
I personally thought the perfume was just OK, not anything special enough for me to run out seeking the bottle, my mom on the other hand fell in love with it.
Armani Acqua Di Gioia, Perfume for Women has a very nice and fresh aquatic zing to it, which I have smelled a trillion times before. I suppose that’s why it did not stick out as anything special to me. It smells watery, fresh, and it is long lasting, but the fragrance just reminded me too much of Cool Waters, which smells great, but the aqua scent to me is so generic and overdone, that I get sick of smelling them.
Armani Acqua Di Gioia, Perfume for Women has a little something floral about it as well, but the florals do not really scream for much attention as they are weakened by the watery dew scent that it initially gives off.
For those of you whom think you would enjoy yet another water field type fragrance than you will enjoy this one because it is long lasting, and you will be able to detect it on you for quite some time after spraying it.
Long last, a good scent (yet over done), and yes I would recommend it to those who enjoy such scents. For those of you whom are sick of the dewy aquatic fragrances though, you won’t find this one very impressive, so I’d suggest skipping out on it.
