    grin.gifHeyyyyy...I'm a 20 year-old girl from China and I found this website really interesting!

    As you know,most of Chinese people don't wear any fragrances,so I can't get much enough information in my country.So as a starter I turned to this site and ask for your advice.I love male fragrances much more than female's,and I love aquatic scents the best,especially a bit salty scents.

    I'm still a student so I don't really have that much money...is there any fragrances that are cheaper but still have good aquatic & salty scents?

    Hope you could help me with this!redface.gif

    Thanks sincerely!

    Dsquared Ocean Wet Wood

    Bulgari Aqua

    Guy Laroche Horizon

    All of these are affordable the Horizon is REAL cheap - it opens VERY sharp almost off-putting but that part only lasts a few minutes and it dries down nice - I think any of these three would be good ones for you to try

    she mentioned she doesn't have much money - not a jab - but lots of people seem to do this - a person says "affordable" or that they don't have much money or are on a tight budget and people suggest Creeds and Bonds and Tom Fords and the like - those are not "budget" scents

    My bad I didn't fully read the op. you would be able to find a good deal on a split though, that's why I recommend some Creeds even if people want cheap. But nonetheless I should have considered the op's whole request when replying.

    I'll second Bulgari Aqua. It has a nice spiciness and classic perfume style, combined with a very oceanic, briny aquatic aspect. One of my faves, though I have fallen out of aquatics lately.

    Someday, when you have a lot of money, remember this one - Sel de Vétiver by The Different Company. The price is ridiculous for a student, but this is, hands down, one of the most beautiful "briny/salty aquatic" fragrances out there. The combination of iris and vetiver with the briny aspect, gives me the image of dining in a seaside outdoor cafe with a beautiful woman wearing designer clothes and expensive perfume. Chandler Burr considers it one of the greatest fragrances ever - so much so that he got in a wee bit of trouble for giving away samples while still wearing his journalist hat at the New York Times. I once wore it in an elevator at work, and two women complimented each other for the fragrance, thinking the other was wearing it. It was kind of hilarious. The scruffy, bearded UNIX guy in the elevator pretended he didn't know who was wearing it, and simply tried not to move, so nobody would figure it out. evil.gif

    You can get samples of it for not much money, or put it on your "someday" list.

    L'Eau Par Kenzo is nice, and the "Indigo" version is a bit spicier - I like that one.

    The Hermès Merveilles series is an excellent salty series - both the Eau and the Elixir are worth checking out. They're a bit pricey on the designer side, but still reasonable, and available in Sephora.
