    A couple that haven't been mentioned:

    1. Caswell-Massey Newport -- very freshwater lake, if you're into that sort of thing
    2. Tommy Summer Cologne (2005) -- this one has a REAL nice beach vibe to it

    Also, as one of the above-referenced threads mentions, Polo Blue is a nice aquatic in the watery-cucumber sense...

    Two interesting ones that are also a bit similar:
    Annick Goutal Vetiver - a very salty, iodine tinged vetiver scent. Can be a bit off-putting at first. You have to wait out the top notes.
    Montale Vetiver Sables - Similar in style, but much less agressive with the iodine. Also sweeter, and balanced with some subtle spices. I found this to be very long-lasting as well. Highly recommended.

    I'd advise that this should never be bought blind. Obviously some people must like it (and full respect to them), but I reckon it's a pretty "acquired" taste. The most raw earthy vetiver I've ever smelt! Can this really be classed as aquatic?

    Can anyone help me out regarding the differences between Kenzo PH and L'eau Par Kenzo? I'm not even sure which one I have sampled (Got it in a 5ml manufacturer mini at home), and really liked. The reason being, is I'm in St. Louis on a trip, and I spotted some great clearance prices at the Sephora. I'm leaving tomorrow but they had L'Eau Par Kenzo for $16, Kenzoair for $15, Gendarme 4.0 OZ for $12, etc.

    LPK has a very nice Lemony opening. Soft greens and florals in the middle, with a little bit of vanilla/woods in the drydown.

    Kenzo PH smells like seaweed to me. Almost, a little booze in there as well. Salty, very marine.
    I'm a fresh scent junkie and proud of it!

    I haven't smelled them recently, but to paraphrase my old note:

    L'Eau par Kenzo is breezier. With Kenzo PH you are barefoot in the sand and the seawater is touching your toes. With L'Eau you are up on the sidewalk looking down at the beach, with the damp wind coming off the ocean washing over you.

    Question Re: Marine/Aqua Scents

    Isn't Nautica Voyage an aquatic fragrance? A wonderful scent!
    Just because a fragrance is expensive, doesn’t necessarily make it smell better than a cheaper one.

    I can still pray in the U.S.A. (For now, anyway.)

    Bulgari Aqua is a rock solid choice. Mare by Creative Universe is a really nice one too. Sleeper hit? Aquaman by Rochas. More distinctive than many aquatics due to the spiciness. It's one that I could easily discern from a quick sniff without thinking about it.

    Oh, forgot one. Fougere Marine by Montale. Perfume strength by default. Great sillage, great scent.

    I just recently received a sample of Fougeres Marines...call me weird but I'm not getting any sort of marine/aquatic vibe from it at all. So much so, I've wondered if I received another cologne all together, based on what I've read for the reviews. Sweet and spicy, hardly anything resembling cool water or GIT. I'm confused...

    To follow my previous post; no one has mentioned anything about Amouage Arcus? It is definitely in the ballpark of what I'm searching for, except it seems to be very linear. Longevity seems to be good; any comments?

    Amouage Arcus. I have a sample of that one. Didn't really like it overmuch. Smelled a bit too much of that overripe melon rind as I smell in Beyond Paradise for men or, to a lesser extent, in Allure Sport.

    Here's another I first tried just awhile ago. Wall Street by Bond No. 9. With a name like that you expect the smell of money. This smells like a basket of fresh oranges with seaweed draped over them. Sounds sorta nasty, but it's actually pretty nice stuff. Certainly worth a look.

    I also get nice aquatic notes from Bond No. 9's Eau de New York.

    Then there's Vintage Yachting Company, which is sort of a cross between Erolfa and AdG... they'll send you a sample for the price of postage: http://www.vintageyachting.com/

    Two mass market ones to try: Aqua Brava Sea Power by Puig... not bad at all and extremely cheap; and Mediterraneo by Antonio Banderas -- I didn't care for that one at all, very one-dimensional but it does have some marine characteristics.

    Ahh, Eau de New York. That's actually the only other Bond No. 9 sample I have right now. When I first received it I let my wife have it to try. Smelled horrendous on her! I likened to freshly cut milkweed on a hot summer day. Bad, bad. She had to go wash it of soon after. Anyhow, I couldn't resist trying my first Bond No. 9. Actually worked out really nice on my skin. Very pleasant. To me it smells rather green and grassy. I literally think of lawn grass when I smell it. But I don't get anything at all aquatic out of it like I do Wall Street.

    this cologne migh be hard to find, as it is a limited edition fragrance intended for select hotels - btw it doesn't smell anything like "water" but it smells like bergamot and orange flowers, quite nice, inoffensive. downside: it doesn't last that long.
