Bvlgari Aqua is an aromatic aquatic fragrance, gives men energy and refreshment with its marine notes.
In the overcrowded “fresh and clean” field of scents Bvlgari Aqua pour Homme stands out. The top is the typical citrus mix of many aquatic scents, here it is mandarin and petitgrain which lead the way. The uniqueness of this scent takes place in the heart with a mix of two synthetics which come off as something much more and never smell synthetic. First is santolina which is meant to evoke lavender water. This is paired with posidonia which is meant to smell like “an oxygen-exuding sea plant found in the Mediteranean depths”. That description sounds like sea grass and anyone who has been on a beach at low tide knows that smell. Thankfully the actuality is that posidonia comes off like a fresh sea breeze full of salt and ozonic notes. This in conjunction with the lavender makes the heart of this especially nice. The base is also a surprising mix of two notes, amber and sage. Usually sage is present higher up the pyramid but in an aquatic the weight it can add to the base is a welcome change and it’s clean, herbal lines stand out here. The amber in the base is described as a mineral amber but you wont be getting the mineral aspects you will be getting the warmth that amber can bring to a scent and that is also a refeshing change to most of the aquatics out there.
