    Re: What's the best aquatic fragrance?

    A couple of thoughts here... I just dont really see SMW as an aquatic. I love it and all, but to me it's a pure and simple berry and tea scent with little to no aquatic feel to it.

    Dont think twice and get your hands on some Versace Metal Jeans. Tough to find, but it's what you're looking for.
