Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gio Eau de Toilette for Men
A Bestseller for a Reason
Acqua di Gio turns 20 next year, yet it’s like it hasn’t aged at all. For years, the iconic men’s fragrance has been a bestseller, its fresh, sea-salty notes emboldened by summer’s sunbeams. The scent was inspired by Giorgio Armani’s vacations on Pantelleria, an Italian island just a hop, skip, and jump from Sicily.

About Giorgio Armani
Giorgio Armani believed, “Elegance is not about being noticed, it’s about being remembered.” His eponymous fashion house embodies this philosophy, which planted Italian fashion firmly on the map. Relying on his eye for tailoring, Armani garbs men and women in sophisticated designs with a European sensuality, marked by simple silhouettes and opulent fabrics. His luxurious empire has expanded from a world-renowned fashion house into a powerful cultural identity. Sophia Loren once said, “Entering into Armani’s world is like landing into the peaceful eye of a typhoon, into the perfect calm, into a style that cannot be shaken by the winds of sensationalism.”
