    Many people compare Bvlgari Aqva to Erolfa. Erolfa smells more expensive, but Aqva lasts much longer and is affordable.

    That super saltwatery/perspiration note is going to be hard to reproduce.

    +1 I can't think of anything that comes close, but the Bulgari would be the one to go with.
    Random thought: Boss Elements Aqua

    There really isn't one yet.
    Try Bvlgari Aqva, which smells of seagrass, or l'eau par kenzo, which is imo the best of the "chlorinated" aquatics.
    These both can be had for ~$30-$35/3.4oz

    I have yet not find a scent that is similar to Erolfa. It`s unique. My advice to you: -Start save up some cash, and get the real stuff!

    There is a "Creed" accord in Erolfa, that is quite prominent, and which you probably will not be able to find in scents from other houses. If you can look beyond that, then Bvlgari Aqva is a very good alternative aquatic to sample. However, they're both significantly different scent-wise, IMO.

    I don't think Aqva smells like Erolfa (I own both). I know it's not cheap, but if you're looking for a alternative with a slightly different feel, check out Heeley Sel Marin. It's brilliant.

    +1---Even if it takes a wee bit longer.

    I assume you've tried it? If not, don't buy blind.
    And please don't buy from a disreputable source; I doubt I could bear another " Fake Creed " thread.

    Erolfa is pretty strong, so even if you can only afford 30ml it will last you for a while.

    In my opinion nothing else replicates the accord of Erolfa.

    If it is the 'salty' note of Erolfa, then the closest (not identical) I've found it is in Sel de Vetiver.
