Acqua Di Gio Eau is a classic and elegant scent that has taken its inspiration from the sea to create a robust, natural fragrance with touches of timber and fresh Mediterranean air that calls to mind some of nature’s greatest delights: the warmth of the sun and the power of the ocean.

Longevity of Acqua Di Gio

Acqua Di Gio fragrance has excellent longevity, and you can expect at least 8 hours or a full day. We would consider it in the long-lasting category. The sillage and intensity while using it are noticeable but not overpowered, after that, the smell is more noticeable in close encounters. However, over-spraying will make most fragrances unbearable.

The projection is excellent and suitable for office or work, as well as dinner or nice occasions. You will get noticed when you walk in a room, but not in a chocking or extreme way.


Acqua Di Gio is a true classic which was very popular during the 90’s. It has a citrusy smell with a fruity touch, fits perfectly for the beach or summer days. However, it’s a fruity scent which might not work for every occasion, but it smells fresh as well. Fresh like in soapy, newly washed clothes, clean. So you will be pretty safe for both offices as for dinners.

In short, we would describe it as a classic Inoffensive scent, but who as well as a crowd-pleaser when it comes to being confident and fresh at the same time. Acqua Di Gio is one of the most powerful, and long-lasting aquatic scent in the market. It was a real innovation for its time of release but is still today relevant.

Acqua Di Gio Smell & Notes

The main notes of this fragrance are fruity, with an undertone with earthy and mossy facets. As in fruity we mean; the scent of citrus and melons in a lovely mixture. In our opinion, this is where this cologne is owning its genre.

You will think of beaches during the summer; you will feel confident and masculine while wearing this scent. The big downside with this fragrance is that it’s a classic which are very popular. That will result in the wow factor going down as most people have already smelled it, or even own it. You’ll feel fresh, but not unique.


Acqua Di Gio has a fruity scent, which is softened by the wood accents at play. Which makes the cologne a little bit milder. It is a musky, melony, and citrusy scent that has been a classic ever since it first debuted in 1996.

That’s right. 1996. This fragrance has been around for the last twenty years for a reason. It’s elegant, classy, and without question a prime opportunity for those fond of the unique scent. It’s mild enough to be suitable for any occasion but not unique enough to make for an unexpected smell.
