Aqva Original by Bvlgari
Aqva pour Homme is an aromatic aquatic fragrance for man released in 2005 by luxury market company Bvlgari, having Jacques Cavallier as its creator.

Aqva it's a marine frag in its essence, with all the strength and depth of the ocean amazingly blended between its notes from top to base, to create the perfect aquatic scent.

Energic a vigorous as an ocean storm, not as an ocean breeze or a walk on the coast line. The Original Aqva is big waves and stormy sea. It's a ship battling a storm in high ocean water and finally getting sunk into the depths of the ocean abiss.

Aqva fills your nose with notes of Mandarin Orange, Petitgrain, Lavander, Cotton Flower and Seaweed, probably its most unusual note but also the one that gives this fragrance its charisma and uniqueness. All of those top and middle notes wonderfully backed up by a woodsy base, Patchouli and Amber giving it an incense like dry down.

Salty and fresh with a punch of character and complexity, Aqva is the perfect summer scent, perhaps even all year round scent if you live near the coast line.

It's a weird, moody, strong and mysterious kind of fragrance, wrapped with a little darkness and probably what your Zack Snyder's Aquaman smells like if you have to make an analogy with a known character.

Out of all the Aqva Bvlgari line the original might be the one with more presence and definition, the more luxurious and sophisticated.

Performance gives you 7 to 8 plus hours on skin with great sillage for 3 to 4 hours. If you spray it on clothes it stays forever and it explodes in humidity or summer rainy weather.

Top: Mandarin Orange, Orange, Petitgrain
Middle: Seaweed, Lavander, Cotton Flower
Base: Virginia Cedar, Woodsy notes, Patchouli, Clary Sage, Amber

All-rounder
Noble, pleasant and fresh, but not superficial. I wear Aqva daily, because it is gentle, but also pleasant and recognizable. I'm always asked about it - but not because the sillage is so strong, but usually after the hug as a greeting.

The scent suits the urban environment as well as outside. He is noble enough for a nice evening, but not too extravagant for the office. If it is to go to the opera, for example, you can wear it wonderfully, although I would rather switch to something like Bvlgari Soir, as it is more noble and extravagant - but this is more of a personal preference.

I myself smell the fragrance sometime no longer on me, in the shirt, however, it is still found the next morning, soft and light.

The bottle sprays well controllable and consistent, as usual from Bvlgari. The shape is beautiful, however, not necessarily practical, it takes up a lot of space in the closet and slides around with pleasure - hold on well!

I love this scent;
But just like most of his flankers, the longevity leaves you longing for a little more. The oceanic feel that this one gives is second to none. A “deep sea” vibe that you either love or hate. It’s definitely not for everyone.

I personally love the way it feels... it gives the vibe of being out on the ocean, with a sort of cool, fresh feeling added to it. While the “Marine” flanker gives a “tropical island” vibe, this one actually has the feeling of being out on an oceanic cruise. You’re having a night on the water; gazing at the stars with the one you love. A fresh breeze coming off the dark blue ocean. You’re caressing each other, under a moonlit sky. The timelessness in that moment that leaves you remembering. That’s the way it hits me. You definitely feel the salt water vibes, and they’re quite intense.

It also feels great in the sunshine; I think I’m going to be using this one a lot on the brighter, sunnier days; it fits me to the degree of being a signature scent. I’ll use it at work. It IS that unique.

Sillage and projection are kind of weak, but only the Amara flanker really gives anything in that sense for this line. I’ll say this one gives a sillage bubble with a 2ft radius, and the scent goes for about 4-5 hours. I spray some on my shirt too, and that adds an hour or so performance. Try it before you buy it, but it’s definitely worth checking it out.

Deep freshness
I got Aqva pour Homme at the same time as a 10 ml tester of the marine version as a present for christmas. For a long time I had a trauma with aquatic scents. But when I smelled Aqva, I didn't think it was bad at all - it goes much deeper than the proverbial shower gel freshness.

It's more of an oceanic scent than a sea scent. You can smell the tangerine at first, but it is already wrapped in aquatic notes that almost swallow it. The scent is deep, with oceanic notes and notes of spray. Although it doesn't remind me of a sea at the beach, the notes give me a holiday feeling. For me, the fragrance is more like a view of the billowing sea at dinner. These deep aquatic notes, with the really only very slight saltiness, are otherwise very clean and hardly change on my skin until the end.

On my skin the scent is already loosely left for 5-6 hours. On clothes it lasts much longer. I also perceive it well again and again. And also in winter, when I miss the sea, I sometimes wear it and think of a coastal cafe, directly at the harbour.

Still water
Summery, complex, herbaceous, slightly spicy, tart and maritime scent.
By no means showery refreshing, not even sweet, rather relaxing, clarifying and masculine.
The scent is not a loud whisper, rather natural, quite pleasantly perceptible.
No stormy Atlantic, also rather not timely North Sea, more so Baltic Sea, perhaps the archipelago in Sweden. quieter waters, calm instead of tumultuous beach.

I get seasick.
No, really. I'm on a large container ship in the middle of the Indian Ocean, leaning against the railing, it's midday in midsummer. We have only loaded watermelons. With the rough swell last night, some fruits have taken damage. Their juice is now dripping out of the hundreds of containers behind me and turns into a thick syrup in the sultry summer heat.

I look down the steel side of the ship and stare far below me into the passing ocean. Dark turquoise, cloudy and mysterious he looks at me. A crusty layer of salt, algae and all kinds of seaweed has formed on the edge of the ship. The musty-marbled scent of this mixture paired with the juicy melon-soaked sea breeze rises in my nose. The situation is somehow romantic, but also somehow oppressive.

Full of power the foamy waves travel along the ship and make it sway. My stomach is getting a little queasy. I probably shouldn't stay so far away from the edge of the ship. I want to go ashore again.

Aquat with character, Poseidon's EdT
Great aquatic scent!
Clean? Wrong! The aroma is algae, slightly herbaceous, tart, yet it exudes a deep, vibrant freshness. A fragrance with character. My fragrance for summer/autumn. I've been asked about it over and over again... 99% in a positive sense... Laugh..

Lost.
To the picture:

While I lie on the sofa and enjoy the day off, I watch the, somewhat older, series "Lost".

A plane crashes in the middle of the Pacific and there are astonishingly many survivors and the island holds one or two secrets (I hereby recommend this extremely crazy and often pointless series).

At the moment season 2 begins and some protagonists are standing desperately on the beach thinking about their future and their past.
Right at this moment the scent comes to my mind.
If you would capture the picture in this series as a scent, it would be this one!

Alone on a white beach, calm, the sound of the sea, in the background lots of greenery, palm trees and shrubs.

The scent:

... starts directly and igniting aquatically (as the name already indicates).
You can smell the sea from your nose.
After the opening something mineral, as well as something green is added - harmonizes really well!

Conclusion:

Amazing what such an aquat can do to you. But what you have to get along with is the famous shower gel note, which unfortunately is not missing here.
Usually not my case at all, but by the association of the sea, I can hide these.

Ideal for a warm summer day or evening. Theoretically but a fresh fragrance for anytime!
Also suitable as office fragrance.

Thanks for reading,
Funu

Probably the best of the Aqua line.
I think it was Dillards where I first smelled this back in 2005, and a song by the Carpenters was playing over the speakers. (Strange, the things you remember that others consider insignificant.) Now, every time I think about Bulgari Aqua, I think about that. At first sniff, it smells nice enough with that orange opening, but later becomes almost plastic-like (yes, I tried it on my skin). But still, despite that plastic, fishy smell, there's something about it I like. It seems sophisticated, and is certainly not pure fish like the Aqua MARINE flanker.

Linear: lots of calone over a cedar base.

Great for a designer scent. Good for hot days.

Projection, sillage and longevity are medium.

An excelent rendition of aquatics: zesty, uplifting, fresh albeit not light. Good option for the Summer.

Along with Aqva Amara, the best of Bvlgari, and the best of citrus aquatics.

Different approach to an acquatic scent, in the dry down is very similar to TF Oud Mineràl.

Most positively invigorating and enjoyable as the ocean breeze itself. Unfortunately it’s equally fugitive, as well.

This is the very essence of the Italian coast. The great fragrance that is fresh enough for summer and bold enough for spring and fall.

A fresh smoky aquatic fragrance, pleasant to wear despite its synthetic drive. After this SMOKE ON THE WATER will we have a FIRE IN THE SKY?
