HWOWW is a nice fragrance, but with some very commonplace notes. It starts with an ocean salt, that fades quickly and a violet, cedar, green patchouli and tonka bean accord develops. It's clean and fresh, if not somewhat flat. Longevity was decent and sillage was average. My issue is that all of the notes used are not terribly exciting and most are done better in many other fragrances. Ocean Salt - Sel Marin, Violet - YSL LH Libre, Cedar/Tonka/Patchouli - Allure Homme Sport Extreme. I will say, the final couple of hours of violet and cedar are very nice, but the sillage is very low at this phase.
If you lack an aquatic wood, violet or cedar scent this could be a single option.
After a great experience by HE WOOD ROCKY MOUNTAIN WOOD i expected another fantastic fragrance by this brand but perhaps HE WOOD ROCKY MONTAIN WOOD was only a small sparkle!i wouldn't say this one is bad but is is not as great as HE WOOD ROCKY MONTAIN WOOD.Cool,Aquatic,Refreshing, Modern,Marine,Nice, Energetic and Inoffensive.
HE WOOD OCEAN WET WOOD is a transparent blend of Violet,Amber,Musk,vetyver,Sea Water and Aquatic notes as it starts aquatic like smelling the ocean water also has a bit of a Melony,Cucumber scent to my nose that reminds me a fresh morning at the beach trip when i smelled it.
This type of fragrances are so nice and crisp especially when you are around ladies.this is very good and refreshing for Casual and Carefree Summerdays. Totally it is a nice choice if you dont mind smelling like half of the other men in the room!Now let me think about HE WOOD SILVER WIND WOOD!
Longevity?Above Average on my skin.
This is an interesting one. Two notes dominate the fragrance and they are violet and artemesia. The violet is of the sweeter, watery variety, perhaps a shade purple and wet. The artemesia is distinct, deeply herbal, but not bitter--it's oddly sweet, breezy, and soft. Ocean Wet Wood is not your standard aquatic. It's quite distinct, and provides none of the sharp citrus qualities that have become standard in the genre. This is like a warm marine breeze in the morning, kind of damp and possessing the freshness of a new day, a trace of cool air passing through it. There's no fishiness or rotting vegetation here, but there's isn't any of that "super aquatic" synthetic stuff happening either. And that's part of what makes it unique. Aquatics tend to fall among the two extremes--realistic impressions of the ocean, including some of the smells one would associate with low-tide, and fantastical interpretations of water, extremely blue and clear and bright. Some succeed and some don't. But Ocean Wet Wood has its own lane. I don't think it's something you'd find in nature, but it feels natural, like it should be there and might be....somewhere.
Of course explaining how something smells is tough. Especially when it's pretty unique. This one comes to me in colors--violet, purple, a light blue swathe cutting through it, soft greens weaving in and out, a gray haze passing by. It's cool, aromatically sweet, and kind of unusual. At the same time, it's very pleasant to wear, and will certainly stand out from the crowd.
Sample this if you can. At the very least you'll try something you haven't smelled before. As for me, I enjoy it very much and for some reason find it the perfect aquatic to wear on a rainy day.
Final thought: If Narciso Rodriguez for Him had an aquatic summer flanker, it might be something like Ocean Wet Wood.
Both the name and the bottle give you a good impression of what this smells like: aquatic and woody. Lovely scent, would recommend it.
Ocean Wet Whatever opens with a bold apple/melonal note, calone, a herbaceous-floral synthetic accord - still crunchy and somehow more vibrant than usual for this type of scents - on a generic "cozy-classy" woody base. All artificial, metallic, clean, "designer" (not in the good meaning). Not exactly "bad", it even has some slightly better quality notes and some more density than other average-low fellow designer scents, but still it's mute and boring as an empty waiting room.
