I have to say something nice about this very affordable (It's actually cheap but affordable sounds nicer) little bottle of summer refreshment - and that's what it is. It goes on bright and fresh and dare I say it's a happy little scent. I'm not good at describing notes but to me at least there is not a bad note in the entire progression - It does dry down to a bit of a powder though so if you hate powdery drydowns you may want to skip it though it can be had for less than the price of Taco Bell lunch so you are not out much at all. The only drawback is that progression is not all that long (at least on me) Maybe 2-3 hours max and then it is "poof" all gone - if you can reapply during the day this fresh little guy will keep you feeling fresh and bright all day - For a very affordable little summer scent you can't go wrong with this one.
This is a very refreshing and unique recipe for an aquatic. There is a very pronounced "fresh air" quality to the scent. After having worn this for the past year, I truly love this scent. There is some salt in the middle to keep the sweetness in check and makes this the purest "beach" I have ever owned. When Kramer thought up his idea of a cologne that smells like you were at the beach, this is the result. It smells exactly like cotton linen that has dried in fresh air. Drydown is light and powdery, but be aware that the criticisims of how quickly the scent disappears are accurate; much like fresh air, the scent is gone in an hour or so. If this were a $100 bottle, people would be raving about the complex balance of notes in this juice.

This stuff is God awful! I know it's cheap but you'd be much better off with Nautica Blue or better yet something from Adidas. This is going in my guest bathroom as a decoration.
Yacht Man Blue is a nice fragrance especially considering it's price.
Yes, It is very light with not a lot of longevity but it is clean and bright for everyday wear.
Non-offensive and a slight ( lime?) citrus that wear close to the skin.
I almost get a very faint tequila note such as in Tommy Bahama Set Sail St. Barts.
This is a definite for days when an overpowering scent just won't do.
On a Budget?
Very nice scent indeed, opens fresh, floral, pleasant and powdery, I mean "powdery".
Very well constructed so I cannot distinguish the notes, they blend well and in perfect balance. The powdery drydown is somewhat sweet with some vanilla and musk, or Tonka bean (coumarin) maybe but I may be wrong because notes are so well intermingled that no a single note dominates. A well deserved thumbs up.
