An exclusive infusion of just-picked flowers offers a new experience of natural and radiant femininity. This fresh, refined, and tender interpretation of Acqua di Gioia can be described as precious, transparent, and delicate - much like Armani's top-of-the-line clothing. The top notes burst to reveal grapefruit, ylang-ylang, and cedarwood. The middle notes develop to include mandarin, water jasmine, and a brown sugar accord. Lastly, the base notes passionately envelop the skin to lay forth bright primofiore lemon, a whisper of jasmine accord, and a hint of soft musk. The delicate balance and harmony of notes is both delicious and divine.
Acqua di Gioia Eau Fraîche is fresher and lighter than the original Acqua di Gioia fragrance that was introduced in 2010. Armani compares it to a delicate breeze, gentle shower of water, and soft green leaves. Compared to the original, the aquatic notes are more pronounced, and the florals subdued, yielding a floral fragrance that you will find refreshing, light (but with staying power), and perfect for the warm months. I'd call the sillage moderate. The bottle, with its shades of light green, is smooth and graceful in the hand.
You can find Acqua di Gioia Eau Fraîche at Giorgio Armani Beauty counters, boutiques, and, of course online at the Web site. Please remember that your purchase alone will support Armani's Acqua for Life program, in turn allowing UNICEF to provide one child with safe drinking water for 200 days. Giorgio Armani Parfums has donated over $1.3 million to support UNICEF's Tap Project. The children of the world deserve to enjoy the clean water we take for granted.
