there's a lot I could say about it, good and bad. And I happen to own it, just the same. But one thing about this scent is very clear (and I dont say this much at all) DO NOT BLIND BUY!!!!!..you may think it smells like most run of the mill citrus scents. And maybe you're thinking you'll be able to deal with whatever character flaws it may have, simply because you know that its longevity will still satisfy you, because its Mancera after all. But trust me, you cannot approach this like any other citrus perfume. If you blind buy, chances are you will at the very least, be surprised or shocked, in an unpleasant or dissatisfactory way. You have to let this one grow on you. And unfortunately, most people paying this much money for this kind of scent, do not have that kind of patience.
Wave Musk by Mancera is a very pleasant smelling, yet relatively common aquatic composition with a stereotypical grapefruit opening followed by a citrus, floral and salty marine accord. It falls into a crowded category of fragrances though and at various points in it's progression, it reminds me of any number of fruit-floral aquatics. However the mix of grapefruit, orange blossom and marine is a little odd, if not slightly unbalanced here.
Better than average sillage and 6 hrs longevity on skin. The more I wear my sample the more it grows on me. A coy fragrance for certain. Good, almost great.

A strange one and a brilliant one. Edgy zitrus, weird salty-flinty oceanic-/acqua-components followed by excessive ambroxan use (or the like). Wave Musk still has a genuine oriental feel to it, don't know why. It's citric, hugely aquatic/mineral salty/laundry-iron white musks in an avantgarde way. Fresh. Dry. Extremely heavy. Never found something quite like it before. Be careful. And DO NOT blind buy!
Nice aquatic fragrance without a lot of grapefruit like a lot of aquatics. Projection and longevity are average and quite a delightful fragrance. The orange blossom reigns with this one.
