I live in Texas and have not herd of his brand until I was gifted this fragrance several years ago. Most of my candles come from B&BW, but this candle smells like Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gio. It does not give me a headache like many other candles do. It is super clean and not over powering. Even when it is not burning with the lid off it gives off a pleasant aroma. I highly recommend especially if you love the cologne Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioit smells similar, but less masculine then the cologne. It’s amazing!
