This one did not work for me. I smell only a common aquatic theme - nothing innovative. Lasting power, sillage and projection are low/weak. Big disappointment.

Opening is a citrus, water accord. The note pyramid says orange blossom and bergamot. Sounds fine to me. The rose is always in the background of this fragrance, even with the opening notes.
Middle notes I can smell the rose and violet and a bit of ginger. It’s very well done and not too strong or feminine. Pleasant mixture.
I like AA. It’s a nice aquatic that is put together well. And it’s not overly pricey. I bought the miniature bottle and am enjoying it rather well. It’s nothing that’s going to shock you or blow your socks off, but it’s a fine fragrance.
I love most Ferre colognes and wear Ferre for Man almost daily. Upon trying a sample of this, Acqua Azzurra, I am surprisingly unimpressed and underwhelmed. This reminds me of so many bland "cool" fragrances for men, cheap ones! The sort elderly men slap on when they go to church or out to the local "steak n taters" restaurant! Cool, aquamarine, citrusy (distinct note of synthetic lime). This is a hodge-podge fragrance that would be familiar to anyone as any number of cheap, inoffensive EDTs. Like all Ferre products, it has a fairly long wear-at least 8 to 10 hours, but I doubt most people who'd like the fragrance would pay premium price for a scent you can purchase from any discount store.
Pleasant aquatic. I agree with Nihilist, this reminds a bit Green Irish Tweed and smells like a sort of ozonic formula of the Creed's one lacking the distinction of that. The link of bergamot, orange, greens, violet leaves and gaiac wood reminds the smell of the Creed's fragrance which ends more ambery, earthy and masculine than Acqua Azzurra which indeed deflects towards a more synthetic and marine kind of smell with its wave accord that, as SirSlarty clarifies, is a chemical marine accord (that we find in Cool Water, L'eau d'Issey, Polo Sport woman etc) that smells like a slightly salty but floral synthetic chord of melon, seaweeds and grapefruit. The metallic effect of the violet leaves is smoothed a bit by a lighter smell of rose that in absence of balsams carries a touch of softness to the juice. Sharp, sunny, balanced and orangy.

smells like green irish tweed!
i couldnt resist. it seems like anything with an aquatic accord is for some reason compared. mature? i dont know. it is sort of thick and subdued compared to many other edgier scents.... but were not talking grey flannel or guerlain vetiver. nothing immediatly says old here, by any means, but it is ageless.
if you loved cool water at any point in your life, this is a safe bet. as a matter of fact, this really should replace it.
