    Default Salvatore Ferragamo Acqua Essenziale Blu worth a bottle in 2021?

    This one has been hyped up a lot lately and doesnít get mentioned much on Basenotes. Am I missing anything special or do you feel itís mediocre at best, it is priced decent and I hear itís nicer than the original Acqua Essenziale.

    IMO that would be too generous.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    I personally think it may be just a notch above average. It's not a complete clone of the popular "blu" ambroxan fragrances, though is definitely a variation on the theme. It's sweeter and doesn't give off that persistent shower gel/shampoo vibe. Decent staying power and projection. I don't get the similarity to Bvlgari Aqua Marine Atlantique or the original Acqua Essenziale as listed on fragrantica, I actually think it's more similar to Eros than any of those, but toned down and fresher. For the price at discounters (less than $20, I think) I believe it's a solid choice.
    Of all 3 in the Acqua Essenziale line this is definitely my preferred one, though it is not a fragrance I reach out for often or will ever repurchase.

    Anything with Blue or Blu in the name is a cue to run in the other direction imo.

    Hi all,

    Somewhere along the line, I was able to score a BOX full of Fragrances (some REALLY good ones) for the cost about about ten dollars. The box of Fragrances included a "as new" bottle of Ferragano ACQUA Essenziale (not the Blu). I must say, I find ACQUA Essenziale quite a nice Fragrances which I am planning to use a lot this Summer. This type of Fragrance/Scent is a major departure from my usual/normal Fragrance type and perhaps that is why (in part) that I'm finding ACQUA Essenziale quite to my liking. That being said, I'm betting that ACQUA Essenziale is more popular/well liked than Blu, however, that is only a guess.

    SixCats!
