    Nautica Blue by Nautica

    Nautica Blue is not a typical aquatic scent, but it is very close to being one. It aims to be a fresh scent, and succeeds in being that, with clean top and middle notes of fruits including blackcurrant, peach and grapefruit.

    Unfortunately this wave of freshness doesn't last for very long at all, and as it dissipates a note which is clearly synthetic and faintly metallic appears. This lends the scent an artificial odour akin to shower gel, with a muted drydown of faint woods which is gone almost as soon as it appears.

    Heavy application of this is required to achieve any projection of the scent, with longevity quite short at around 3 to 4 hours on my skin. A pleasant fragrance which is best used to stay 'shower fresh' for a few hours after one's daily ablutions, but which serves little other purpose.
