I would like to say this scent was a dissapointment but that would not be true. I did not have high expectations for it. As the article says the presense of a Calone note makes it smell a lot like many other fragrances out there: Echo, Eternity summer, Leau dIssey, 1805 etc, etc, etc. Bvlgari Aqva was good for one thing: it took the aquatic theme and gave it a twist making something different. Aqva Marine is a step back. It takes the topnotes of Aqva and returns to the generic aquatics. About the packaging, I am not sure if I like it or not.
