Beachside nights, juicy quince, salted air...
This reminds me of Autumn nights on Padre Island, bonfire ablaze and the air heavy with salt on a pulsating breeze, tiny crabs running sideways here and there and the shore dotted with seashells like pearls in the sand. The crisp ginger and sweet, juicy quince dance in a unique accord over the depth of the wood and sweetness of the amber in the base. She does remind me vaguely of my husband's Aqva Pour Homme (the shared DNA is quite obvious to my nose) and I love that one, though like someone else has mentioned, the Pour Homme is by far a stronger, larger-projecting fragrance.
For this one I suspect the warmer it is outside, the more she will completely unfold and shine. As it is on this cool Spring morning, I am nostalgically transported back to the Gulf Coast shores, surrounded by friends and the gorgeous salted air.
Scent: 9/10 probably 10 in warmer temps
Performance (longevity): Moderate. Fair enough.
Value: Good. No complaints about the price for what I've received in exchange.
Sillage: depends largely on application. With 3 sprays, moderate.
A small caveat worth mentioning: I oversprayed this once and made myself nauseous so start out with this one cautiously. She is a beauty, though. Just be careful, folks. ♥

A delicate feminine perfume, also for men.
Today I am wearing Aqva Divina through the kindness of a friend, and it is one of those feminine perfumes, that even feeling delicate and tender, has that subtle woody touch, which makes it possible for a man to dress without problems.

A fine, fresh and delicate fragrance is not invasive or annoying, on the contrary, it is extremely refreshing and relaxing, very pleasant, where, for me, the protagonists are ginger and quince, on a light background of amber of woody warmth , with very nice floral and salty nuances. In general this is the aroma, except that, at the start, the bergamot gives it an extra touch of momentary freshness, but it is light and lasts a sigh, and then, in the final drying, the amber woods have more prominence, otherwise, the perfume is a fresh quince, juicy, tender and spicy by ginger, with a slight floral aura, exquisite, and all about, the aforementioned, subtle bed of woods, warm, ambered and sweet, really nice . You can see the hand of Morillas in this, the king of subtle and delicate aromas.

The yield is moderate, it is not a pump, but it is compliant, and above all it is very cool to cope with these heats, so you know, it is a very good option to dress during the day, in warm and warm seasons.

It is not the typical unisex perfume, you can see its feminine execution, but if you are open-minded, it is an easy scent to wear, yes, any man will not like it, but that's like everything, to taste the colors, but if you have it at hand, and you want to try it, go ahead, it's a very good option to try new things and get out of the routine.

Sorry for my bad english.

Fizzy Orange Rind
Alcohol & Vetiver leading forthright to a focus on a "fresh", effervescent and zingy mandarin orange.

Maybe here an orange by any other name is a "quince"?
Possibly with a slight sprinkling of this so-called "salt" in the opening.

No seaside. No cookie, but it does take the biscuit, and it's certainly not cricket.

Nice but boring. Fresh, fruity, woody. Not salty.

Edit on the seventh of August 2017:
I began to doubt my initial opinion of this scent. I retested it and got the same result. This is, from top to bottom, as before, mainly orange peel and vetiver. Nothing else worthy of mention.
I get no salt. No ginger. No floral. No beeswax.
I'm not about to say I smell something just because it's written in the notes.

Edit 10th of January 2017:
Got this at a bargain price and am testing on skin for the first time. Other notes are coming through - some fizzy sweetness - and this is slightly more enjoyable than my tests on card, but orange rind is still the prominent dominator here. Smells like it could possibly squeeze into the lighter side of the Hermes Eau de Merveilles family.
Overall I personally feel that this was already done far better by Montblanc with Presence d'une Femme.
Funnily enough, the bottles are conspicuously alike also.
