Future Jason:

Oh, what the hell. You enjoyed this.

You don't disagree that it smells like the 90s.
You don't disagree that there are probably a billion things that smell very much like it--and many of those likely to cost less than this does.
You don't disagree that it smells like a room scent. "Welcome to the fancy car dealership. You look poor. What are you doing here?"

But it made you happier as soon as you put it on, so that's got to count for something.

You're getting enough of the geranium and musk (you think--you're an idiot, after all) on top of the aquatic stuff to make you think that your liking this won't go away.

Seriously, if you guys are looking for a decent (and cheaper) ozonic-"oceanic" aroma stick to the well appointed Guy Laroche Horizon, Kenzo Pour Homme, Aqua Quorum or Bvlgari Aqva. This fragrance is part of a huge range of almost identical metallic chemical waters. Montale Fougeres Marines is common as a pack of spaghetti (a typical example of the useless Montale's redundancy), a really boring and calone centered aromatic-fruity-marine with a sporty-gym patchouli, sharp simil-floral patterns and a synthetic pungent fruity-musky feel as whatever Davidoff Echo, Paco Rananne Invictus, Tommy by Tommy Hilfiger, Eternity Summer for Men, Ferre Acqua Azzurra or Adidas Fresh Impact. Buy it if you wanna smell as a neverending crowd, in the opposite case pass by.

A horrible ozonic scent straight from the '90s with greenish synthetic stuff underneath, so cheap even supermarkets won't accept it.

I can’t decide which is more trite: the Cool Water-inspired fruity fougère accord at Fougères Marines’ core, or the walloping dose of Calone that comprises the “marine” element. In any case, I see no reason to pay niche perfumery prices for ideas that were passé in the last century.

Yes, it's kind of Tommy, kind of Baldessarini, boldly unoriginal

I sort of like the way this fragrance smells, but it's rather strong in an uninviting way. Harshness is not the way to get my attention. After a while I realized it has much of the base of Baldessarini but without the fruit that makes that one delicious. It has the tenacity of Tommy and all its charm (or lack thereof). I feel I've smelled this already a hundred times on every kind of man. At this price point, the lack of anything interesting is criminal. I love the bottle though; not to be commended otherwise.

Pros: smells pretty good
Cons: fairly nondescript for this premium price
