    Re: Favorite aquatic fragrances

    I'm a fan of Bvlgari Aqua as it hits the aquatic note just right for me with it's salty, deep ocean vibe. It's less common than AdG which suits me just fine.

    Re: Looking for a fragrance for my father.

    I'd go Bvlgari Aqua. Spray like there's no tomorrow and it still won't completely overwhelm the immediate neighborhood. It's an age-neutral aquatic that should keep him out of your collection.
