L'Eau D'Issey pour Homme
Bvlgari Aqva Pour Homme
Thread: Bvlgari Aqva or Issey Miyake?
L'Eau D'Issey pour Homme
My vote goes to Issey.
L'eau D'issey. By far.
Bulgari Aqua by a mile......

man you love you some polls. It's really up to you. Everyone likes different frags. Like the question before, what do you like?
Bvlgari by KO...
Aqua, by a long shot. Issey Miyake's citrus punch to the face and flowery components almost gave me a headache. Plus, my sister said it smelled "girly".
My vote goes to bulgari aqua. I find it very similar to issey mikyake, just less harsh.
Issey is nuclear. Intense headache stuff. Acqua di Gio beats this stuff by miles - and gets beaten by miles by Aqva.
I used to LOOOOOVE issey miyake. It used to be one of my favorite fragrances. Then one day I wore the fragrance, and it made me feel really nauseous. Then every time I wore it, and could smell it on myself, I felt really sick. What is crazy is I have never felt this way before with any fragrance ( and I have many). What else is crazy is when I gave it away to someone, it smelled great on THEM and did not make me feel sick. For this reason I have to say go with Bulgari aqua. I also get just as many compliments on Bulgari aqua as I do with Creed Erolfa, which is like 4x the price....
I hope this makes sense and is of some help to you....

Thanks for all the posts. This has been a hard decision, but I think I will have to go with the bulgari as well for now.

For some reason bulgari aqua is just kind of boring and smells like any other mens fragrance on me. Issey, however, is a bit more exciting and I am leaning towards it over aqua...maybe I am missing something here.
Bulgari Aqua is slight,to the point of inconsequence. Issey is by far the better choice
My vote goes to bvlgari aqua
Best solution - own both!
I'd choose Issey, nice citrussy summer fragrance for me.
I have tried Aqva about 2 or three times, never cared for it enough to even consider a decant..
Issey Miyake is my favourite scent for summer/spring, it gets me so many compliments from the ladies and it has very good longevity, I think its one of those scents that I will make sure I never run out of
my vote goes to aqua, it seems to be less ubiquitous.
I really like both and purely on the merits chose L'eau D'Issey because on me it is slightly better.
I don't think this is an obvious choice and even based on the closeness of the vote that seems to be true.
One factor to take into account is your desire to smell different. Bvlgari Aqua is less common in the general public than L'Eau D'Issey is.

While I like both, I'd have to go w/ L'eau D'Issey given that it was my favorite during my college days. Unfortunately, it's become much harsher to me lately so I probably won't replace the bottle I have once it's gone.
