I'm down to the dregs of my last bit of Aqua di gio now they've stopped making it. Please suggest something light and not musky as my new signature scent.

I hate aqua do gioa which replaced it, I think it smells sickly and like pineapple impulse.

I used love Marc by Marc Jacobs but post babies my skin chemistry must have changed as it's strong and missing the powdery dry down smell I used love. I also used like green tea by Elizabeth Arden but I haven't seen it for ages either. Any ideas?

What this:

I'm not sure but they stopped making it two years ago. I bought a bottle off Amazon and it had gone off. My current bottle was the last one in Heathrow duty free

I think I remember seeing a bottle when I was shopping recently - i noticed it as my friend has the same problem as you. It might be worth a try. It shouldn't go off as long as it's stored in the box.

and to answer your actual question (sorry) there is a "this perfume reminds me of" section if you scroll down:

I also loved the original Aqua di Gio, try Dolce and Gabannas Light Blue or Versace Bright Crystal, both light and fresh and really lovely.

I sometimes wear Pivoine Flora by L'Occitane and it reminds me of Aqua di Gio.

What about Prada Infusion d'Iris?

Prada Infusion d'Iris is lovely.

Noooooo! They stopped Aqua I'd Gio? That's been my signature perfume since I was 14. I've not bought a bottle for a while as I've had a few as gifts but I'm running low and was thinking I needed to get a bottle. Making notes of the suggestions here, thanks.
