Giorgio Armani ‘ Acqua di Gioia perfume for hot summers
Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gioia EDP is a fresh and pure fragrance for women, which features notes of mint, water jasmine, cedar, brown sugar, and labdanum. A perfect summer perfume that’s alluring you and everyone around.
Acqua di Gioia by Giorgio Armani is a Floral Aquatic fragrance for women. The top notes of this Italian perfume are Amalfi Lemon and Mint; middle notes are Jasmine, Peony, and Pink Pepper; base notes are Virginia Cedar, French labdanum, and Brown sugar.
Seductive sea aromas in the new fragrance are put into the first plan and used as creators’ inspiration. The composition of the perfume is compared with a woman who is ”strong, dignified and free spirit but in perfect harmony with nature”. Inspired by several summer holidays spent on the islands of Pantelleria and Antigua, where Armani has his villas, the fragrance was lead by the idea of escape into nature, a heavenly place of real holiday where we restore the energy necessary to body and soul, and where we create a natural balance. Since I first tried this Italian perfume, I couldn’t imagine a summer without using my Acqua di Gioia!
