Maybe I'm losing my mind, but to me this smells just like Bvlgari Aqva??
The notes just don't add up to the 'briny salt water' accord, though.
A*Men smells like leftover holiday fruitcake forgotten in the back of the fridge until mid-August, tossed out, dug out of the trash by the dog, and summarily vomited all over the already-rank living room carpet of a 3-bedroom duplex rental shared by five bachelors.
10/10 on sillage and longevity.

Smells like a drier iteration of John Varvatos
Given all of the sexy marketing surrounding this new C.O. Bigelow release, I guess I was expecting something edgier (maybe more of the bourbon/black pepper combo?). The drydown smells nearly identical to Bvlgari Jasmin Noir, which is a great fragrance, but not exactly what I was looking for.
I'm sure this works with someone's chemistry out there, but this smells like brackish water on my skin - I ended up scrubbing it off with a mixture of vinegar and laundry detergent to kill the stench (even vinegar was preferable).
