Acqua di Giò Essenza evolved out of its predecessor but differs from it in many ways. The top note is different: we are no longer in a marine wave but in the coolness of fresh water, in the invigorating purity of a flowing spring. The water runs, sparkles in a constantly renewed dance. It permeates the entire formula, giving it an extraordinary, persistent freshness, sustained by accents of cologne, Sicilian bergamot essence and delicious grapefruit zest. Now to the heart note: Hedione is replaced by one of its descendants, still new to the perfumer’s palette, aptly named Paradisone. Like its ancestor, it has the amazing ability to brighten everything around it and enhance the power of each ingredient, to last in the long run and lock the molecules in the aura. The base note is distinctive, reinventing everything. Almost every one of the original elements is present, though totally revised. The result is an incomparable sensuality, the tantalizing lure of the skin.
