Aqva Amara, a new flanker of the masculine fragrance Aqva from Bvlgari, represents a new twist in the creation of aquatic perfumes. Perfumer Jacques Cavallier enriched the composition with noble ingredients making it more luxurious, while trying to preserve the distinctive aquatic and Mediterranean character.
Aqva Amara, or "bitter water", is a fragrance filled with energy and light symbolized with its copper color bottle. The composition includes accords of Sicilian mandarin mixed with oil of neroli flower. The base notes are Indonesian patchouli and white incense olibanum.
Famous male model Jon Kortajarena poses on a beach as a sun kissed Greek god. The campaign was shot by Mario Sorrenti. The fragrance is available as 50 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette. Aqva Amara was launched in 2014.
1.1 Why are the products so much cheaper?
We sell products directly to the public. There is no physical shop and there are no middlemen, so our overheads are kept very low, and we pass our savings onto you!
1.2 Are the products that you sell real or authentic?
All the products that we sell are completely genuine - we have no dealing with counterfeit of fake products. We sell the same name brand designer fragrances you will find in all the big retail department stores except not at the retail prices.
1.3 What is the difference between Perfume, Eau de Parfum, Eau de Toilette, and Eau de Cologne?
The differences are simply a matter of the amount or concentration of oils in the fragrance. These oils are called "juice." The highest concentration of "juice" is in perfume (or parfum). Next would be Eau de Parfum, then Eau de Toilette, and finally Eau de Cologne.
Actually, Eau de Toilette and Eau de Cologne are generally interchangeable, particularly in Men's fragrances. The higher the concentration of "juice" the longer your fragrance will last, and the less you need to apply.
1.4 Why do some fragrances seem to last much longer than others?
People with dry skin usually find their fragrance holding time shorter than those with oily skin because oily skin has more natural moisture to hold in the fragrance.
PH levels (amount of acidity in our skin) also varies slightly from person to person. Our individual levels of PH will determine how each ingredient in a fragrance will react.
1.5 How can I make my scent last longer?
Fragrance lasts longer on some people than on others because of differences in our skin (oily or dry) and in our PH levels. To achieve a longer effect, try layering your fragrance. Using the fragrance bath gel, (if the company offers one), then the moisturizer or powder, and then the Eau de Toilette, Eau de Parfum or Eau de Cologne, will usually have a longer lasting effect.
Also, apply your fragrance low on the body, as well as behind your ears and on your neck, so that the scent rises and you won't lose it as quickly. A light spray on the hair can last all day.
1.5 Why does fragrance contain alcohol?
Alcohol makes the fragrance emanate from your skin. Without alcohol, you would be the only person who knew you were wearing any fragrance at all.
1.6 How can I keep my fragrance from going bad?
Keep all fragrance in a cool, dry area, and away from windows as sunlight can unbalance the various ingredients. An opened bottle should be kept in its box to insure a longer shelf life.

Customer ReviewsWrite a review
This fragrance is tagged as the "Strength Of The Ocean". When I wear this perfume, I feel like I'm a strong, powerful, seductive and attractive hero, not Aqua Man but instead, I feel like I am 'The Ocean Master'! A great scent mandarin, citrusy, floral and very masculine fragrance! It smells so good and very long lasting! I received a lot of compliments from women when I wear this perfume. An excellent choice during summer season!
Thanks Perfume Philippines for the great limited product, Aqva Amara. Been looking for this product wc is very difficult to find. Will enjoy this summery vibe fragrance. Will order again from you guys in the near future.
Well packaged and delivered earlier than scheduled. Authentic and rare perfume,
Quick delivery to the province! It doesn’t last as long as I expected as I got the reformulated version but smells great and good for a discontinued fragrance!
received the day after it shipped. legit. will order again.
Sellers are legit. I already bought 3 items here, the only problem is the courier that doesnt text when the parcel is near or will be delivered on that day. Anyway, it is an isolated case and its a different review so i give this a 5 star. Have ysl l homme or la nuit very pleaseee! Thank you :)
