Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioia

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue fans, rejoice! Too long has Light Blue been housed in a bottle that resembles a brick made out of plastic. Too long has your beloved scent been confined to a vessel unworthy of its glory.

Too long have you watched my sister. Too long have you haunted her steps.

Giorgio Armani feels your pain, Light Blue fans. That’s why he oh-so-thoughtfully rebottled Light Blue, so that you don’t have to hide that hideous brick in your bathroom cabinet anymore. Either that, or he thought nobody would notice. Acqua di Gioia is an airy aquatic scent, pretty until the drydown, which smells like a fairly harsh cleaning product. Like many such “clean” perfumes today, AdG is actually pretty strong, so don’t go too crazy with this one. I think it unlikely that AdG will dethrone Light Blue, or come particularly close to the success of the original Acqua di Gio, for that matter. The ads suggest that it might do well among the android population. Photoshop be crazy, y’all.
