It was around a week ago when I first posted about Aqva Pour Homme Atlantiqve and being a new blog I always send my articles over to the companies who’s products I’m reviewing to get my foot in the door. You never expect a reply, you just send and the deed is done. But this time was different, as Bulgari reached out and offered to send a sample of the fragrance for me to review.
I received an email notification from UPS saying a parcel was coming over from Italy and here I was waiting for a tiny little 5ml spray bottle to arrive to test but oh no. Bulgari only went and sent me a full 100ml bottle of the fragrance to review. I couldn’t believe it, for a designer brand to send out a shelf product rather than a tester to a new luxury site is just incredible. So if anyone at Bulgari is reading this, thank you so much for sending me this to test.
Now even thou Bulgari were kind enough to send me this fragrance to review, my review will still be as open and honest as if I had purchased the product myself. So let’s get into it.
The packaging first and foremost is classy, elegant and oozes that ocean vibe the second you open the box. The pebble shaped bottle is a beautiful container but keeping a fragrance lying down due to it’s shape instead of standing up like a normal bottle confines it to it’s box for display purposes which is a shame. Unless of course you wish to lay it amongst your stand-up bottles.
Upon the first spray of Aqva Pour Homme Atlantiqve you are blasted with a sweet watery lemon citrus top note which really hits you. It’s a strong summer morning scent that instantly reminds me of another famous oceanic fragrance, Davidoff’s Cool Water. It’s when the fragrance starts to dry down that it comes into it’s own with a more woody and darker tone. It feels as thou the first spray bursts you into a summer morning and the dry down is as subtle and calming as a summers eve. Either-way this fragrance is a sunny-day fragrance which for me living in the UK, is a rare occurrence.
Aqva Pour Homme Atlantiqve is nothing new in the fragrance game especially with the top notes instantly reminding me of other less pricey fragrances, but if you wait a little while then the dry down is subtle, nice and the scent finally comes into it’s own.
A scent for the middle aged man in my opinion and a perfect spring / summer fragrance in a hot climate. Projection is nothing short of incredible, It has been 15 hours since I first sprayed and it’s still lingering. That is impressive!
