Rated 4.36 out of 5 stars
I was super excited about the new My Way Intense and placed an order almost as soon as it came out. When I was checking out this perfume popped up too with the same trial offer. I read the notes on this one and the reviews and decided I'd give it a shot. I truthfully wasn't expecting much from it. Boy was I wrong.
The minute I sprayed the tester I was caught off guard. The scent doesn't have any harsh alcohol scent from the start. It was immediately soft and delicate. I couldn't stop smelling my wrist. I don't know how to describe just how nice it smells. Everything in my description will make it sound like a winter fragrance but it totally isn't.
There's this beautiful delicate aroma that feels like you are wrapped in cashmere and almond. Even though I'm making it sound like a sugar bomb it isn't and that's why I was shocked by it. You get the amber, almond, and cashmere with it not having fruity overtones or more fall-winter scents.
I don't think anyone could be offended by this scent. I read somewhere else where someone said it smells like a mature Baby Soft, somehow that seems to fit.
I love this fragrance and used my whole sample. I had originally ordered the small bottle with the sample. Truthfully I was conflicted about opening the new bottle because it fades so quickly on me. This morning I came to a compromise and decided to return the small unopened bottle and instead order the larger bottle with the discount. Realistically I'll go thru it fast because it doesn't have the lasting power I typically go for. I really wish there was a lotion or travel size spray available so I could possibly layer or refresh my scent easier.
The scent it reminds me the most of is Thousand Wishes from B&BW. The main difference was where that had a pronounced sweetness that felt cheap, this has a perfectly balanced mature and delicate profile.
I would give this perfume 6 stars if the longevity was better. I'm lucky if I can get 2 hours with this one.
I didn't receive any incentives, rewards or samples for this review. I'm just leaving it to possibly help others.
It sounds so odd. I bought a small bottle and am conflicted by it so much that I am returning the small bottle for a large bottle. I just hope that with reapplying I'll be able to enjoy the scent sufficiently. If it had a slightly better longevity this would be my all time favorite scent.
I love this perfume but with all the Armani Di Gioia scents they do not last longer than 2 hours and they don't even turn into skin scents they just go away. I don't like that because they are to expensive to not have lasing power.

Such a great fragrance for the Fall season; however, it is light enough to wear year-round. It's not overpowering and the notes of almond are very soothing.

This scent is very nice. Not overwhelm but very nice. I wish it lasted longer though.

After ordering the perfume based on its composition, I love it. This was my second order of the same perfume.

I like the way the fragrance smells on me. I received a very nice compliment.
AJ from SoCal
This isn't the kind of scent I go for. It's very vanilla smelling. Not so much what I go for but it is a nice scent. If you like vanilla you will love this.

I love most of their line. I own acqua di gio and since this is the terra one thought it would last as much as the other one…..after a few hours doesn't last and vanish…..all and most last til next day!
Dee K from Pittsburgh
I bought this hoping for the best. I had never smelled it prior to buying. After I read the notes, I purchased. This is an absolutely beautiful, warm scent. Exactly what I love!

I have worn the original Burberry for 10 years - still love it, but wanted to try something different. Terra di Gioia is lovely! So gourmand, cozy and warm. I enjoy the sweet woody scent. It's soft and lasts a long time on my clothing. Highly recommend for any one that's likes Burberry original, YSL black opium, coco noir or Tom Ford tobacco vanille. I blind bought the largest bottle since after trying My Way (all 3 varieties) I trusted Armani scent descriptions whole heartedly. Highly recommend Terra di Gioia, especially this fall and winter season!
R4H A from New Jersey
Literally the prettiest scent I've ever smelled, I hear so many good things about and blind bought and I'm so glad I did, it's really beautiful guys. Hope the projection and longevity is there since it is really soft
Kayy from Illinois
A refreshing spring/ summery scent and one that I truly love!

Terra describes it exactly. It smells like earth and it's wonderful. I've been wearing it daily with many compliments since it arrived.
