No, I wouldn't say it's an aquatic - at least not in the sense that the term aquatic is typically used. It does suggest water, but not in a melony way, not in the same salty way that Erolfa does, nor at all like Bulgari Aqua. It's so very clear and minimalist.. I keep using the word crystalline but it is apt.
There is the impression of water in the first hour or two, but it's not chlorinated pool water nor salty sea water. It's mostly in the texture which feels wet at first, but again in that clear/ethereal way. As it develops further the scent itself doesn't change much but the texture becomes airier and fluffier - no longer wet but not dry - as the term is usually used regarding scents - either. It's hard to explain as there are almost no discernable notes whatsoever. Like I said (and I see in others' reviews at Luckyscent) it's so minimalistic that it's really like nothing else. It has less supporting notes (or at least less discernable notes) than even a "basic" scent like Jovan's White Musk for Women, which is far more powdery/thick/dense/opaque and floral.
So no, it's not aquatic as you are thinking. It's more like a white musk that is done without any traditional white musk notes. It is soft and yet soaring. Clear and vibrant, natural smelling (although surely nearly 100% synthetic) and very long lasting. When my girlfriend first smelled it on me - a few hours into the drydown - she said "Wow, you smell just like fresh air! What are you wearing? It's really nice." She made that comment not knowing anything about the scent prior, so I guess others really do pick it up as a very pure/fresh air kind of scent with a blind sniff.
