Reviews of Aqua Amara

Power Summer Fragrence.

Fresh and very long lasting. My only criticism is that there is a hint of egg to the scent. Yes! Egg! Once you smell it you can't un-smell it.

But if you can bear the hint of egg it really is a nice fruity fresh summer beast that will garner you compliments.

This is an intriguing scent indeed. The top notes are rather exotic; the Orange-Esque intro is not for everyone, but as the heart notes come forward it grows on you, and when the base notes hit it’s a powerhouse in masculinity. I love the dry down.

Longevity is FANTASTIC for me; this guy lasts ALL DAY LONG at work for me (8-10 hours EASY), and it never fades out. The projection isn’t “overpowering” but you will leave a few “whiffs” behind every now and then. (I’d say an arms length in projectile radius).

This might not appeal to everyone, as the intro is very unique, but if you can handle (or hide) for the first 15-20 minutes, the heart notes and base notes will carry you through and make a lot of people send smiles your way.

This aquatic is somehow linear and complex. On my skin it does not change from the first spray until I smell it on my clothes the next day. It has such a prominent orange blossom accord, but there's more to it. In addition to this bitter citrus, there is salt and a touch of musk at the bottom. But all three notes are there from the start.

This smells like the bottle looks. It is a drop of saltwater on the tongue at sunset.

Pair this with a linen shirt, short sleeves, buttoned up halfway. It will last all day, and you will be glad it did.

Wear it to the beach, to the pool, to a casual patio brunch.

Scent: 8/10

Longevity: 9/10

Sillage: 8/10

I love the original Bvlgari Aqva pour Homme, which in my opinion is the best marine/aquatic fragrance out there, having the essence of actual seaweed in it. The other flankers I don't like so much compared to the original. However, this one - titled Aqva Amara meaning 'bitter water' in Italian - is fantastic as well, but unfortunately discontinued by Bvlgari apparently. It opens with a bitter dry salty mandarin note with a heavy note of saltwater as in the original Bvlgari Aqva. It's extremely pleasant at least to my nose and smells like an orange sprinkled with salt. As it dries down I basically get heavy neroli (orange blossom) on my skin (and neroli is one of my favourite aromas ever). The neroli note in this is bitter and slightly green in character (in fact I think I detect petitgrain as well - the leaves/twigs of an orange tree). It is similar in a sense to Bond No. 9's Eau de New York (my favourite neroli fragrance ever) but is far more bitter and salty and not as sweet (though Eau de New York isn't sweet to begin with except for the late drydown with indolic white flowers). On the drydown I also get hints of the typical seaweed accord as in the original Bvlgari Aqva. On the late drydown I also get patchouli and a bit of incense. But the great thing about this fragrance is that the orange note lasts throughout the whole time, which is pretty fantastic for a citrus fragrance - though personally, due to the pervasiveness of the neroli note, I would say this is more of a neroli fragrance than an orange citrus one, akin to Ferrari's Bright Neroli but more bitter and aquatic with saltwater and seaweed. Sillage is strong while longevity is also strong, at over 8 hours. The longevity far exceeds the regular Bvlgari Aqva (which lasts about 4-5 hours on my skin) and is one of the strongest for a citrus based cologne, period. Overall this is a wonderful iteration of the orange and neroli note, mixed with an aquatic ambience that is rare (think Terre d'Hermes but with seawater instead of dirt and pepper). Bvlgari never should have discontinued this gem.

5/5

I've really enjoyed wearing this during the summer ..makes for a really good summer evening scent in my opinion. I get a bright bitterish orange, a bit of neroli and some patchouli to keep it slightly darkened with a pinch of seaweed odour, This stays very much this way from start to finish. Performance is fantastic 8hrs+, (4hrs strong projection) for a citrus thats great and so is the price point. The presentation and sprayer are equally great. I've had a couple of people say I smell nice which is reassuring so it projects well too. Fans of citrus and aquatics should give this a try..shop around tho as this isn't expensive and you get an awful lot for your money. Full Credit to bvlgari for releasing some very original aquatics.

This is a summer go-to for me, especially if I'm enjoying a day at the pool or beach. Very unique for a summer scent as it has lots of freshness and sweetness but also a bold, orangey-floral mixed with some spice or incense.

The only scent I have worn that can withstand ocean or pool water and stays on, still projecting for hours.

Performance is all day and projects so that you will get noticed.
