    Default Bulgari Aqua vs. Bulgari Aqua Marine

    Both recognizable for their oblate-shaped bottles.

    To me, they are both similar in composition. The difference is that AquaMarine is the fresh sporty play-it-safe summer day scent and Aqua is the more dark mysterious spicy scent.

    Personally, I think Aqua is better.

    Not that Aquamarine is bad, but it is just not recommendable in my eyes.

    If you own one and not the other, I would say that it is not urgent that you get the other, as they are both similar. But if you really really like one of them, then you should consider getting the other.

    It seems I have always been in the minority on these two, but there is a powdery quality in Aqva that I don't like and I own Marine.

    Neither will set the world afire, but I own and prefer Aqua of the two. I would not repeat the purchase if doing it all over again, however.

    Aqua hands down. There is a salty/peppery/spicy feel to it that doesn't exist us any other designer marine type scents

    For me, it's Aqvamarine hands down. Aqva is so boring, and just an overdose of calone for the most part. Although longevity is pretty good. Aqvamarine has much more depth to it, it's also more unisex, I dated a girl who wore this.

    Marine is way too sour and offensive. Aqua is amazing.

    I don't care that much for Aqva either. Not that it's bad, it's just boring to me. It needs a sharper note in it to make it more interesting. That's why I've got my bottle up for trade on the swap thread for Aqva Marine or other scents.

    Bvlgari Aqva is a better scent in all aspects IMO.

    Bulgari Aqua pour Homme Marine is a unique, brine composition.

    Aqva Marine is a boring & generic melony/aquatic mess
    Aqva is a melony/aquatic with a weird fishy (seaweed) smell
