Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gio is an established fragrance which is very popular with Fragrance Direct customers, as its fresh, aquatic scent is perfect both for everyday use and those special occasions, and its excellent price makes it great value for money. Giorgio Armani founded his fashion and leisure brand in Milan, Italy in 1975, making its mark with haute couture, ready-to-wear designs for both men and women. Today the Giorgio Armani brand now encompasses a number of different lines and products, including childrenswear, cosmetics, hotels and resorts, and of course fragrances. Acqua di Gio (men) and Acqua di Gioia (women) are fresh scents created by Armani in the mid-90s, inspired by the scenic beauty of Pentellerie, where he spent a summer vacation.
