    Default Acqua di gio + powndery +soapy

    Is there fragrance similar to ADG but with a soapy powdery smell and with good sillage?

    Perhaps Givenchy Blue Label

    I think you should give Fougeres Marine by Montale a try.
    KCCO!

    Try all the Prada male scents. They're all about powder and soap. One has to have the aquatic notes...maybe Luna Rossa.

    Used to be very good, current formulation is barely there in all senses of the word.

    As a big fan of soapy scents, I've to say Luna Rossa is the least soapy of Prada male offerings (Luna Rossa is barely soapy, the powdery note is almost unnoticeable, and Luna Rossa Extreme is not soapy at all, it's clearly an abrupt change in the usual Prada male style).

    Anyway I agree Luna Rossa is a nice fragrance, and the OP might like it. Just don't expect a "soapy" scent such as Infusion d'Homme, because it doesn't belong to that category.

    For illustrating what I'm saying, I use Infusion as my daily scent for work, because I like to extend the shower feeling for the whole morning. On weekends I usually choose between Amber pour Homme, Rive Gauche pour Homme, or Adolfo Dominguez Vetiver, all of them soapy, but with a scent less neutral than Infusion.

    ...but... this Summer I bought a Luna Rossa bottle... I really liked it, because its salty note makes you feel like if you were at a terrace next to the beach. It's not a luxury scent, but it's very nice for Summer, and it suffices to say that the bottle is more than half empty now.

    So, back to the point, you might like Luna Rossa. But expect a night in a terrace next to the beach. Don't expect soap from a 1920 barbershop.

    To my nose, Creed Royal Water has a very marginal similarity with ADG- in my strictly personal opinion, this unisex citrus-aquatic fragrance has a strange, but still perceptible similarity with ADG slightly acidic-fresh watermelon note, yet with more soapy and powdery notes thrown in.

    D&G Light Blue Pour Homme. More shampoo-y than soapy, but otherwise similar in some ways to AdG.

    Prada Infusion as mentioned by ChuckW is spot on
