    Default Which Aquatic is Better?

    Which aquatic is better? Bulgari Aqua, Elements Aqua, or something else? I won't even consider Bulgari Aqua MARINE because, on my skin, it smells like fish. I am seeking a TRUE aquatic, but something unique, not another Cool Water clone.
    Just because a fragrance is expensive, doesn’t necessarily make it smell better than a cheaper one.

    I can still pray in the U.S.A. (For now, anyway.)

    Bulgari aqua is a solid blue fragrance. I would recommend it to anyone looking for an aquatic.

    I know that this one has been played out a lot but Aqua di Gio is great, non-offensive and you can wear it day or night. Nautica Sunset Voyage, Kouros Summer Edition, Aqua Azzurra, or you might even consider 212 Men Pop. All are decent hot weather aqua fragrances. Their are many. Do no limit yourself.

    I already own Nautica Voyage. It's nice, but has a sour (lime?) note that annoys after awhile. Also, it dries down to soap. Just looking for something different.

    Nautica Voyage- Best cheap aquatic

    I think Heeleys Sel Marin is one of the best Aquatics you can buy.

    These are all my faves.....

    Aqua Fahrenheit - woody leather aquatic (wear a sample - can get strange in the drydown)

    Bulgari Aqua - oceanic aquatic

    Quiksilver - creamy woody aquatic (cheap, too - real Aussie sandalwood)

    Sel de Vetiver - briney perfumey aquatic (the best - amazing scent!)

    L'Eau d'Issey PH - woody freshwater aquatic (guilty pleasure)

    Acqua di Gio - king of the aquatics (reference aquatic)

    Yuzu Man - cool, subtle, citrus aquatic (nice and very different)

    Creed Royal Water - strange aquatic citrus (be careful - it's odd)

    Aqua by Bvlgari is good. I have Dunhill Desire Blue now and I like it. A bit powdery, but great for the summer. Projection is just ok. L'eau de Issey Summer Edition (2004) got me tons of compliments.

    Acqua di gio is the best aquatic on the market bar none.

    Acqua Di Gio is a fantastic aquatic, it hasn't been the top seller in a while and it's not as umbitqotous as people would like you to believe.

    If price isn't too much of an issue here's some of my recommendations

    Millesime Imperial
    Acqua Di Gio
    Bvlgari Aqua
    Heeley Sel Marin
    360 Red
    Hugh Parsons Blue
    En Passant

    I still find the original Bvlgari Aqua to be the most unique and truest aquatic. It really gets a deep salty ocean vibe like none other.

    What about Lanvin Oxygen? Very cheap at the moment and it really is pretty nice as far as aquatics go, the pepper and wood in it make it much better than something boring like Aqua di Gio

    The only two aquatics that I like are Tirrenico and Bvlgari Aqva. Sel Marin is another great option but I don't consider it an aquatic. More like a cedarwood-vetiver composition enriched by nice citruses on top and an overall salty vibe.
