This fragrance conjures at me an horrible, luckily brief, time of my life and over this sphere i feel the tentation to thumbs it down. Over a second and different olfactory path i have to admit that this scent smells good. Alessandro dell'Acqua Man is a warm, spicy and rosey complex aquatic, pleasantly synthetic and with a captivating musk on the base. It starts with a blend of citrus, grapefruit and marine notes and in the following stages warms up due to a bunch of flowers producing a smooth rosey feel, due to a cool and slightly bitter-pungent cardamom and to a velvety woodsy base. A rosey, slightly balmy and velvety musky aquatic with a persistent lukewarm projection.

nightcutter summed it up well. lots of flowers.super cool bottle.this one makes the 1-2 week lasting power of le male seem like a joke.i smell this on my skin for 2 weeks,and on clothes for 3.a bottle should last for 30 years! i really like this one,but cannot use it because it will cancel out any other scent for at least a month!
I'm still not sure on this one.
I get a strong lemon/grapefruit at the opening which stays pretty constant and the dry down into the cardamom and hint of sandalwood. There is a bitterness mixed in there as well and it smells like a museli bar I used to eat when I lived in the UK. Not a bad thing though! It lasts about 3-4 hours on me.
I don't know at what occasion I'll wear this again. I think maybe casual and it'll work well in spring and a cooler summer from what I've just experienced.
Interesting for me but nothing great. I can't see it getting a lot of attention on me but I'll see how it goes and report back.
Neutral for now.
I think this is really nice.
I've had a bottle for about 4 years now. I don't use it that often as I've other I prefer.
But Dell'Aqua is great for breezy summer evenings - when I where it most - and cool summer days
I'm not sure how to describe it. It makes me think of honey or 'gold' for some reason.
It's a warm variant of Cool Water with (to my nose anyway) rose.
My bottle is a tester and the spiel on the back says:
sea breeze living (heh heh)

The new Beckham Signature Story Men has a lot in common with this. But A'dell'A is better!
This has a fresh, floral, slightly citrus opening. "Fresh" in the ozonic sense of the word. The scent is somewhat sweet, bland and generic in character. I don't get any spice or wood notes. The sweetness gets quite tiresome and synthetic in character. There is an oddly metallic and tangy note in the drydown which is unpleasant.
