I’ve had a soft spot for good quality fragrances for a few years now and my fragrance preferences have changed a lot since I was a teenager. I hated sweet scents, but now it is hard to imagine that I would buy a very fresh eau de toilette and actually enjoy using it. When I got the Sun di Gioia by Giorgio Armani as a gift a few months ago, I was nothing but ecstatic to see how it would wear on my skin. I tried it a couple of times at the drugstore, but then I finally got the opportunity to test it out and make a proper review!
This eau de parfum is characterised by very warm notes of vanilla and amber. White flowers and powdery notes also contribute to its feminine touch. The creators of Sun di Gioia wanted to capture the warmth of the Mediterranean sun and when I close my eyes, I can actually see myself lying on the beach savouring every sun ray that touches my skin …
When I spray Sun di Gioia on my skin, vanilla and amber are the notes that predominate at the beginning. However, the focus slowly shifts to floral notes of frangipani, ylang-ylang, bergamot, freesia and jasmine. After a couple of hours, warm notes of vanilla again come to the forefront and stay there until the evening. In my opinion, this is a perfect fragrance for spring and early summer!
