I don't know about you, but I am one of those girls who has had a longtime affinity for men who wear Acqua di Gio. I don't know what percentage of the male population wears it, but I seem to only go for dudes who do. As a result, I have a love/hate relationship with the scent.
I always knew that there was a lady version of the Giorgio Armani classic, but I had not tried it for myself until recently.... OOPS. It it deliciously clean, fresh and crisp. I think it is a great alternative to floral scents for daytime, and one that is appropriate for any season.
Acqua di Gioia comes in eau de toilette or eau de parfum. As I went to smell both, I was sure I would want the parfum, as I was looking for something to wear as a perfume, and was told that the toilette was more on par with a lighter, body spray type of scent.
HOWEVER, not only did I find the parfum to actually be too highly scented, but the toilette strong enough for daily use, AND (*bonus*) it is less expensive than the parfume! I don't know about you, but I think a large bottle of perfume for under $60 is pretty amazing.
