This is more suitable for a Insect Repellent spray. Synthetic, cheap and horrible.
Still one of my most enjoyed fragrances and body spray. Among all that I own, this one never fails to elicit awesomeness. No need to analyze this as I thoroughly enjoy it. Always have. So natural and easy to wear. It is enigmatic and alluring with a cleanness unparalleled by most. Very unique.
Is this dated? Yes!
Are there better aquatics out there? Yes!
Is the projection and longevity sketchy? Yes!
Do I love this? Absolutely!
I first encountered this scent (and/or Joop!) in the early 1990s when I was in high school, and it brings back many fond memories of my teenage years. I would douse myself with this scent and go hangout at the mall with my buddies where we would strut around and try (in vain) to pick up girls. WE thought we were hot stuff, despite the fact that we had to call my mom for a ride.
This scent is pure 90s in it full aquatic glory. This and Cool Water are my coming of age scents. There are much better frags out there, but this is cheap and does the job. I just picked up a 3.4 oz bottle at Mrshalls for $16. For this price, I say it's a steal! Even if I only wore it one or twice, it is woth it!
I like it. It's a true aquatic (duhhh it's called nautica lol). Perfect for everyday use or when you don't wanna use your good stuff I suppose. Good for any age really. Nautica Blue is better and lighter.
This was my first-ever cologne purchase, as a teenager. It was simple, smelled light and fresh, and was perfect for me at that time. Even into my college years I found it made a perfect weekend fragrance for a hot summer. Very light when compared to the popular ones of the time, slightly complex, but included a rough citrus on the opening and a mix of musk after it dried down. Longevity, as others have mentioned, was short.
No regrets here, but not something I would turn to now. It was perfect for the time.
