Not bad, it could have been better with a less fruity approach. Anyway the smell is watery and ozonic as usual for an aquatic, but this one is in the fences with the woodsy aquatics, in the same vein of Bulgari Aqua and Kenzo Pour Homme. The combination of greens, cedar and labdanum imprints a deep green and mossy mould to the scent with a following watery, woodsy, deep bracing outcome. The fruity note of Cassowary fruit breaks the spell (of an excusively green aquatic) since the beginning and provides a coloured aroma of different fruits hard to catch in the particularities, making ordinary the evolution and leading it towards the common world of fruity-ozonic marine smells. The synthetic trait is moderate. Not bad but nothing special.

Rated #2702 in Fragrances
A nice fresh fragrance. I didn't find it too sweet, and quite like the scent but it is a little bit femenine to my nose. One thing I will say is that I am completely paranoid that someone will smell this on me immediately after application. It smells like artificial watermelon flavouring, and while I had a good laugh at it the first time, I always make sure to apply this about half an hour before I leave the house. Once the initial watermelon scent has left I quite enjoy wearing this on sunny days
Got this today on the cheap. First 5 mins, nothing special, but then.. All there is...is watermelon, bubblegum, watermelon, bubblegum, and more watermelon! Such a clean fragrance, although very linear and a little synthetic. I'd give myself 3 sprays of this once out of a hot shower, or when i'm roaming about the house, or maybe, just maybe on a hot summer's day, but be warned..wearing this on a hot day will definately get too cloying and sickening. Longevity on my skin, i easily get 5-7 hours, projection is moderate, something you'd expect from a fragrance of this caliber. A fairly good job by Joop. Recommend this to the younger crowd, college students maybe.
Very well done summer fragrance by Joop. Fruity, aquatic and fresh. Nothing really special but very pleasant and versatile. Longevity is outstanding for a summer fragrance.
This is not unpleasant, per se. Also- it's a welcome and long overdue departure from the expected sweet/woody/resinous formula that Joop has been known for all these decades. On the other hand, it is no less sweet and candy-like than all the other Joop offerings we have become familiar with. This time, the ultra-cloying sweetness is centered around melon and saltwater. Bottom line: Sure this offering IS different than all of its older siblings.............Just not different ENOUGH to make it necessary to own in 2011.
Not bad, not (that) good: average joe.... Fresh, easy to wear and excellent for a good springday or summerday. Will it last long? not for everybody smellable, but when washing your hands later on that day: scent will activate again! So for daytime things, work and summertime: ok!
