Wave Musk fragrance notes

Reviews of Wave Musk

Citrus and salty sea air, this is a marine aquatic that can be worn by men or women but leans feminine to my nose. Reminds me of something like AdG and Sel Marin mixed together in the opening but then it thins out as it dries down, coming off synthetic and a bit like hairspray. It stays this way to end of the fragrance which is a long time.

Projection is very good for this type of watery-freshie and longevity is even better, lasting all day.

Mancera Wave Musk is easy to like, a marine scent that has a reasonable balance of citrus, aquatic, and musky influences, some standout notes being sea salt, driftwood, grapefruit, and musk.

It comes off quite synthetic, more so than many other offerings in the Mancera/Montale realm, and that's its main detractor, as, like the rest of their catalog, its performance is decent, particularly for a warm-weather-leaning composition (the houses seem to be known for their darker, more cold-weather-leaning fragrances, in my opinion).

It's decent juice but it's a little difficult for me to avoid noticing the slight funk of synthetic aquatic notes, not just that there are aquatic notes. I liken this to a significantly less refined and cheaper alternative to Tom Ford Costa Azzurra, which seems to nail the concept well in its use of driftwood.

As semi-transparent aquatics go, I'd do much better with Nautica Oceans or a CK One Summer, particularly for the price, though I'd be remiss not to point out just how cheap Wave Musk is on the secondary market, only $89 (for a standard 120ml bottle) on FragranceX and a shocking $60 on Perfumania as an online-only option, a website that accompanies a chain of discount perfume stores that actually mostly fall short of having good deals.

Still, I'd recommend seeking this out if it sounds good, as the value is strong, particularly at $120 for 60ml, if you dig the fragrance. I'd personally fare better with either comparable cheapie options or, on the high end, Tom Ford Costa Azzurra.

I am giving this a thumbs up even though I would not wear this myself. Why? because it manages to have depth of sweetness (not for me if its the main characteristic without something masculine to balance it out) and freshness. So more feminine than unisex but there is a dynamism to it which could suit those men in touch with their feminine needs.
Nice. Not for me.
Would make a good signature scent for men but especially women as it is unique.
Note: My wife likes it but agrees its a bit feminine. Say no more.

Nice aquatic, but smells like a $2 can of some generic room spray with a beach picture on the front. White musk strong, the smell of a handful of soap lather. I also get suntan lotion smell...but that may be my imagination.

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.
