This fragrance has been on my mind lately. My gf at the time bought me a bottle in 1991. It was fresh and lively; similar to the original nautica fragrance. I was passing by the mall and decided to stop in at a kiosk that I knew sold it. The SA tore open a new bottle to spray for me. I was appalled to discover that it was not the same fragrance of my youth. Yes, it had the notes but something was off-putting. Patchouly dominated with a slight tinge of honey in the background. There was a burnt bark note amongst the construction that translated into a fragrance that has either turned or not handled properly. I had the intent to snatch a bottle if it struck an accord, but alas it left me disappointed.
