This is my first time trying a fragrance from the House of Giorgio Armani, and all I can say is that it's definitely worth every penny. The opening is a minty fresh aquatic with hints of floral notes and dries down beautifully like a minty cucumber, but it smells nothing special like some generic/familiar scents I've smelt before; so I won't recommend wearing this on special or romantic occasions. The fragrance doesn't evovle that much from opening to dry down. This is a great safe everyday scent which is very hard to unlike, not overpowering nor overbearing, and definitely great for summer and hot weather . It lasts about 4-5 hours on my skin. If you are planning to become a perfume collector, this is a good start.
