Aqva emozione
I love perfume. Some more, some less. Some is beautiful, some isn't. Perfume can be creative or totally arbitrary. Flattering and annoying, accessible or bulky. And, of course, the perception about it is always subjective. But sometimes, very, very rarely, a perfume is so much more.

Aqva Amara is such a special case. When the analysis of fragrance components becomes unimportant and the limbic system takes over instead. A feast for the senses. Heart over head, feeling over mind. You can call it whatever you want. I mean, you can call it whatever you want: That's what perfume is made for
What it smells like to me? Fresh, tart, tangerine, aquatic, a little smoky. Everything already described in detail. Good and correct and yet much more than the sum of its parts. Anyway, absolutely irrelevant.

What it feels like to me? Light-hearted and inscrutable. Sea. Untamed power. Waves breaking on high cliffs. Depth. Vastness. Rugged and sweet at the same time. Sun. And clouds. Alternating light and shadow. Wind. Warm breeze and wild roar. Peaceful balance or the calm before the storm. Longing, unbearably beautiful. Absolutely and not at all. Supposed memories of an unknown place.

Aqva Amara touches me. What better thing to say about a fragrance?

The fragrance for the summer of the century
I haven't had Bulgari Aqva Amara on my screen in a long time. To me the blue original was still a term, I have it nevertheless more than 10 years ago times possessed. It didn't really leave an impression on me.

By the many positive comments and...yes...by the pretty boy from Sankt Augustin I became attentive to this Flanker here. I wasn't disappointed.

Aqva Amara is the fragrance I have worn by far the most this summer. The top note is simply stunning. It's like heading for a monster wave with your surfboard crashing over you. I agree with the previous speakers. This is pure refreshment and you can't overdose this fragrance. Especially the tangerine makes you really happy in the first three hours. Furthermore, Aqva Amara is a fragrance that can be perceived for a long time.

Shelf life: I have a sweaty office day in it, 7-9 hours
Sillage: 5-6 hours on trial level
Flacon: The one with the "Blubb", beautiful!

Conclusion: The perfect summer fragrance for office, casual and afterwork. Multitasking.

Also very cheap online. Hit him!

Thank Jeremy ...
I certainly have my "difficulties" when it comes to buying valuables where I am not sure whether I will like it. When it comes to clothes such as trousers or shoes, you already know visually what you are getting. Mostly it doesn't fail because I don't like it or not, but because it doesn't fit in terms of size - the disadvantage of online shopping.

With fragrances this proves to be much more difficult - if you are not standing in a boutique. The flacons all look pretty and inviting, the waters partly in different colours (if obvious). Nevertheless, one does not know - and that is what ultimately matters - whether the content is appealing. Some people will recognize themselves here when it comes to having regretted a blindbuy.

All the greater is the joy when the bottle is unpacked and can be booked as a complete success. Because I count myself among those who bought this fragrance blind. Jeremy (yes, I look at his contributions from time to time) praised him a few times in his videos. I stumbled across this scent when I wanted to get reviews and impressions about Dior's Sauvage and the differences between the EdP and the EdT. Instead it was called "Aqva Amara here, Aqva Amara there", "Mad smell, like the ocean etc." Now one thinks, if someone raves so about a smell, which also seems to have a hunch about it ( the success proves him right ) the perfume must be the true hit. So: Bagged.

A few words about the fragrance: When I unpacked it and tested it first, I was not sure if I shared Jeremy's opinion or not. Gave in the beginning neatly on the 12, both from the smell, and from the atomizer - which is really not prissy. This one feels like a good pound to the neck, accompanied by the extremely smoky fresh(?) for me. I haven't smelled it before. Rarity value is present. With time it subsided a bit and became very pleasant. Do not misunderstand, even the beginning was not bad, but rather needs getting used to. 7 - 9 h later I heard him still well at me. As another user already wrote, he can be smelled much longer on his clothes. The bottle itself... Well, unusual to a little pragmatic. Are there flacons that are easier to handle, let's say so? I already lost a word about the atomizer.

But nevertheless: If you like fresh paired with a certain spice, you won't be disappointed with this fragrance. Should he really be hired, fast action is required - No, I am not paid by Bvlgari to do advertising ;)

St. Nicholas Day on the beach
When I was a child, I always got a small package with surprises for St. Nicholas Day, like probably many others here. Usually a small toy, a little chocolate and lots of tangerines. Although I liked chocolate and toys, I always went for the tangerines first. Whether it was because we lived further south at the time and the tangerines were better or because I just like tangerines I don't know. Fact is: Tangerines always remind me extremely of St. Nicholas Day. Especially when these smell quite fresh and intense.
Bvlgari Aqva Amara was an absolute blind buy for me. I was still somewhat new to Parfumo and also did a lot of research via YouTube and Fragrantica, so I wanted to test everything at once. The scent description and my lack of summer scents at the time made it interesting to me. So when I read that it was going to be discontinued, I ordered it immediately. In the 2-3 days I waited for the package, I regretted it a few times because it was an impulse buy and I might not like the scent.
When it arrived and I applied it, yes, I was happy as a child on.... Santa Claus Day? Exactly, because the tangerine in this fragrance smells so fresh and juicy that I would love to bite into it. Now this wintry association doesn't really fit at all, since this is a summer scent. You notice that too, because besides the tangerine, the "aquatic and mineral" notes make you feel like you're sitting right on the beach yourself. Eating tangerines just.
But quite apart from my affinity for tangerines, I think this fragrance is something very special. Before Aqva Amara I had never had such an authentic fragrance experience. Due to the fact that I also grew up rather in the designer area, I could never smell out a fragrance so clearly and easily as here.
The performance and sillage are perfect for a summer fragrance in my opinion, on the clothes I smell it by the way even two days later. It is not a fragrance that announces the arrival of the wearer over several miles by press release, but bystanders with small flattering breaths to come closer. And so far, I've really only received positive comments.
Given the fact that it has probably been discontinued, I can recommend everyone to consider buying it. I have really fallen in love with this fragrance. One day, when I make a little more money, I'm going to spend January 6 in the southern hemisphere eating tangerines on the beach. I'm sure I'll be thinking of Aqva Amara while doing so.

The dirty side of summer
Well, the scent is supposedly rather bitter, but for me it is "dirty" in a positive sense.
It's just not as clean as most summer fragrances and apart from the freshness it's the opposite of all the summer fragrances I've seen before. And that is exactly why it has become MY summer scent. I simply love this fragrance, which has everything to offer from fresh, fruity, aquatic, metallic and a warming heaviness.

The fragrance polarizes and I notice in my environment that it does not go down well with everyone. You have to be able to live with that. I can do it and I got myself some more bunker flacons. Let's hope they don't tip over so fast ;-)

Conclusion:
Aqva Amara is for me a day at the sea, it is fun, lightness, light-heartedness and lets the sun shine for me again and again. Also on a sunny day in autumn it is a perfect companion.

Durability: Above average for a summer fragrance. If I spray it on in the morning, I'll have some of it all day long Sillage: On me almost as good as the durability. Also outstanding for a summer fragrance.
Flacon: Typical Aqva halt. You can argue about the shape, but the colorful design fits perfectly to the fragrance experience.
