    I'm surprised so many actually like Bvlgari Aqua. While I think it's a very good composition from an artistic perspective, it seems kind of cold and bleak - the kind of scent that's appropriate for a foggy/misty/rainy day but not regular wear.

    Ehh, I own Aqva, and reach for my Voyage, far more often. Aqva is not bad, but pretty boring. Way too much calone.

    I am very much in the minority I suppose, but the only one I really like is Bvlgari Aqva Marine. I prefer it over Bvlgari Aqva.

    Kenzo pour Homme

    To the O.P: I apologise in advance for breaking your no niche rule, but I feel really strongly about recommending Ineke Derring Do. It is an amazing floral aquatic, which is very complex in its development. No perfume before or since has captured rain in the same way.

    Again sorry, because you've explicitly stated "No Niche", but this should be easy to test and near the same price as designers.

    @SoS: I love Bleu de Channel but I agree with you that it is not aquatic, so I wont recommend it as one.
    Conscience is what hurts when everything else feels so good.

    Cool Water then Acqua Di Gio

    I like Kenzo Homme but its projection/sillage/longevity are all poor on me

    Also, New West by Aramis (although that one is more of a fresh fougere with aquatic accents).
    SEEKING BOTTLES OF:

    Aramis New West (preferably old bottle)
    Patrick by Fragrances of Ireland
    Azzaro Aqua
    Gloria by Cacharel

    PM me if you have bottles that you're willing to sell or trade!

    Unforgivable. My "golden standard" aquatic is Millesime Imperial, and, that is a similar rendition with less complexity and longevity.

    Probably Nautica Voyage - Even though its not a super aquatic scent IMO.

    Consider the new DKNY Men, a good take on ADG.
