An aquatic for people who hate aquatics. In other words, it's not an aquatic. It's herbal, aromatic, and somewhat sharp. Strong dose of lavender as well.
It's weird. The very first time I was looking for a fragrance, before my hobby began, I was at an Ulta store looking to sample stuff. I bought a bottle of John Varvatos, but happened to sample New West. Something about it stuck in my mind and 6 months later I bought a bottle. It's probably THE fragrance responsible for my hobby/passion. It smelled so different from anything else, I didn't know if I liked it or hated it.
Since then, I've sold it, because I'm not crazy about it, and kind of decided that I hate it (just a little bit), and also worry how it smells to others around me. But I miss it from time to time. I might get it again (only if I can find the blue bottle) for nostalgic reasons.
You should probably sample it first.
