This is an extremely interesting scent, best for Spring/Summer use. First spray I get a very distinct fruity aqua smell, with an underlying whiff of pencil shavings. 20 minutes or so a very salty marine note dominates. I get excellent projection and it will last 5-6 hours with 7-8 liberal sprays in the key areas. It gets compliments and questions, which is a sign this is good juice for me to use. This isn't a scent for everyone though, as I gave my Dad a few sprays and it was very synthetic and metallic smelling. So this one is very dependent on your chemistry.
I love this bvlgari cologne.because when i wear it i fell very relax! fresh and clean but not special.
The opening is citrucy.grapefruit note is lovely for me but a little like Gio!
longevity this cologne is very good on my skin...girls love it then is perfect for romantic occasion in summer days.
A little lemon, a little ocean salt and a little rotting fish.
The initial spray was lemon water and ocean salt with a faint brine and floral lurking underneath. Not really very pleasant, but not terrible and somewhat fresh. As the lemon water fades the brine water and floral come forward and ruins everything. It goes from fresh to foul pretty fast. The brine water is not salty, but a rotting seaweed or almost fishy smell and there's a synthetic floral note competing with it. After about two hours, I washed it off.

Well thats one of my top aquatics scents,
citrus mixed with salty sea odor .
the melony citrus opening is my favourite part that lasts on my 1-2 hours
then comes the peppery and salty notes on top and last at least 6 hours on my skin but close to it.
Not great silage and projection after the first hour but it is there for you and I really enjoy
stick my nose 4-5 hours later and find it there.
IMO better than original Bulgari aqva,more fresh!
let me first state that I wanted to love this one. And oddly enough I did. Let me explain. I have a fear this stuff has been reformulated and possibly several times. I first smelled this at a macys. I sprayed my wrist and a white tester panel card and carried that with me as I went about my business in the mall. I would periodically check the card and my wrist to see how the fragrance was developing. IMHO it was amazing. Nice and fresh with a decent citrus opening that died down into a very pleasing easy on the nose scent.
Then I bought a bottle and all went downhill. The opening was identical. That nice citrus blast was there but then something very synthetic and offensive crept up. The only other scented product I have smelled it in was the fresh cotton linen (?) scent from bath and body works. This note is so offensive and off putting that I literally have a bout of nausea everytime I smell it and I literally cannot get it off of me fast enough. Its a shame because it starts with such promise and just fades into a nightmare for the nose. Oddly enough I went to an Ulta and I tried their tester. This bottle was even worse than the bottle I bought. I dont know if the tester was old but it smelled nothing like the one I bought or tested. It had a rancid smell. I was expecting pacific ocean and got LA river. I would avoid this one for the inconsistencies alone.
