Inspired by beauty of Pantellerie, where he spent his vacation, Armani shaped the aroma of Aqua di Gio for men and women. The perfume for men is an odour of freedom, full of wind and water. The arrangement is built of a faultless harmony of sweet and salty notes of sea water and shades of sunny warmth on your skin. Aqua di Gio is full of scorching Mediterranean sun. Bitter citrus with perfumed nuance of rosemary intertwines with salty, sea nuances and pellucid hedion. Piercing notes of spices are softened by woody base with warm, musky trail. Armani started his career as stylist of shop-windows in a department store and worked his way up to menswear buyer. From 1960 to 1972 he worked as a designer for the well-known house of Nino Cerutti and then worked as a self-determining designer for a number of fashion houses before founding his own brand. He presented his first collection of men's clothing in 1975, followed by a line for women that same year. Armani gained a wider audience for his work with the popular movie "American Gigolo," in which Richard Gere's character wore chic Armani designs. This was to be the first of many future film collaborations.
The aquatic, aromatic scent of Acqua Di Gio is a perennial favourite.
Opening with an invigorating splash of fresh citruses, the scent is tempered by the lightness of floral touches. At its heart, light, aquatic nuances mix with spicier and woodier notes to create a natural interpretation of masculine sensuality.
A scent that lingers seductively like a second skin.
