Aqva Divina description

Bvlgari’s Aqva Divina is an aquatic floral the likes of which you won’t have smelled before. Although it is fresh and salty, the scent is also delicate and feminine – more like the pearlescent insides of a seashell than marine algae.

Close your eyes for a moment and visualize Botticelli’s Birth of Venus. Aqva Divina conjures up a bouquet of pink and white flowers growing on the craggy rocks beside the sea, brushed with salt crystals, honey, and the memory of exotic island fruit.

First, there is a joyful burst of fresh sea air. This is the God of Wind, Zephyr, who is blowing gently in the direction of Venus, the breeze kissing her warm, naked flesh with sparkling sea salt. A peppery, biting ginger note adds to the feeling of brightness and liveliness. It effervesces up from below, driving the salt and citrus to the surface like bubbles in a glass of champagne.

Aqva Divina becomes creamy and sensual in the heart, the sharper citrus, salt, and woody spice notes melting smoothly into a honeyed floral cream of magnolia and quince. The musky quince gives off a ghostly impression of baked apples sprinkled with lemon zest and rose petals.

The creamy fruits and flowers are the influence of the Hora of Spring, who in the Botticelli painting tries to cover Venus’ nakedness with a cloth dotted with berries, herbs, and flower petals. But Zephyr prevails, and the perfume never loses the salty, fresh touch that makes it so distinctive.

Then at last we turn our attention to the quivering figure of Venus herself. A beeswax note develops, suggestive of the delicate aroma of warm female skin with its faint, golden muskiness. The translucent mélange of woods and white amber mimic the shimmer of the pink and white insides of her seashell. A sensual back and forth between sweet and salty notes, Aqva Divina is Venus personified.

Aqva Divina is an unusual entry into the aquatic field. It deftly manages to take a salty, marine floral theme – typically a male-dominated domain – and twist it into something delicate, creamy, and fresh that women will adore wearing.

Anoint yourself with this scent, and no matter if you’re stuck in traffic or the boardroom, you will be transported to the wooded shores of your favorite beach, your toes sinking gratefully into the cool, clean sand, and your fingers grasping at the sea flowers dotted along the shoreline.

Definitely not what I was looking for. I have others from BVLGARI and was hoping this was it, but oh no. This was very spicy, almost like a cologne.

I was hoping this was the specific Bvlgari perfume I had smelled during a trip this summer when I stopped in a fragrance shop. I should have taken note of the exact name of the one I liked, because this one is definitely not it. While it's a nice perfume, it reminds me too much of an elderly lady's stereotypical choice in fragrance.

This perfume is so different! It's spicy but also more aquatic. It reminds me very much of a breezy summer afternoon. This type of scent is not something I usually gravitate too, but it was a welcome and surprising change of scents.

I expected this to smell just as amazing as the BVLGARI Aqva EDT for men, but in a more feminine way. It smells kind of masculine and powdery to me with the initial spray/smell . I'm 21 and I feel like the scent is a bit too old for me. The initial sprays are very strong, but as it sets, it starts to smell more sweet. It still smells nice, just not as nice as I expected it to be. The faded smell is much better, but it's hard for me to get passed that initial smell it has.

I definitely smell the salt in this, which does make me think of the sea. However, I found the floral tones in this to be much stronger. More like you're in a garden and occasionally getting a breeze off the sea. I also smell the powder that the other reviews mention, but I personally don't find it overwhelming. This one goes on pretty strong, but it fades to a reasonable level fairly quickly. After about 12 hours I can still smell it on my wrists, but it's pretty faint. I haven't decided if I'll buy this one or not, but I like it.

Doesn't smell like described. I really love the mens Aqva so I hoped it would be similar but feminine. I tried wearing 3 times. Not horrible but my thought was, this smells like something my dad use to wear. I brought it to work to see if someone else wanted it and one of the guys said it smells like Stetson.

Unique and fresh. I can't put my finger on the initial scent. It goes on to remind me of the beach. Sea salt, airy, watery. I think I smell a bit of heady floral at the end. Light and lovely. Fades over a couple hours. I was surprised to see some reviews stating that it was a strong scent.

This fragrance is so unique. That's what I love about it. I've never smelled anything quite like it. It's very warm and oriental at first. It's very strong as well but I like that because it stays longer. I'm not getting a floral scent at all. It's very oriental, orange jasmine spicy. It's a nice fragrance for winter I think.

This fragrance is very complex, and am still undecided. It goes on quite heavy and warm, which I don't usually like, but it wears down to a nice light floral, and you get a lot of the magnolia, which I do like. Even though I am still neutral, I have gotten many compliments when I wear it.

This did not sit well on me. Per the description, I was hoping for a more watery and summery fragrance. It was much too masculine, powdery, and bitter for my taste, and these qualities only intensified on my skin, rather than mellowing out. I can see fans of more traditional/vintage perfumes enjoying this.

This stuff is strong! They were not playing around with this fragrance! It is salty, tart almost bitter, and ever so slightly floral. You have to wear this with confidence or you just can't pull it off. The quince which gives it a tart almost bitter scent is definitely polarizing. You'll either love this or you'll hate it. There is no in between.
