    Try Montale's Sandflowers. It's aquatic all right, and with great sillage. It smells like being on the beach in summer.

    Why not Cool Water by Davidoff (or any of the variation, like Game or Wave). To me it smells just like cool water...

    Yes, I agree with Musse, Cool Water is, well, a watery classic.

    Saks DNA for Him-- best aquatic I've smelt in a long time

    I'd like to suggest Christiane Celle's Calypso Marine.It avoids the iodine and metallic notes that I find off putting in many marine fragrances, but it still has enough of the beach (along with whispers of floriental) to make it more interesting, to me anyway, than those shower-gel-and-cucumber aquatics. Happy hunting!

    Caron's Eaux de Pure (not sure I've got the name exactly right - the one in the blue box).

    Kenzo l'Eau is aquatic and fresh-cut grass
    Cabotine Bleue is aquatic too - very fresh and clean
    For something a bit more oomphy sniff Dior's Dune and see what you think.

    Hermes Eau des Merveilles EDT is salty-sealike and Escada Into the Blue reminds me of the beach.

    cb i hate perfume has several "water" accords on his website. http://http://www.cbihateperfume.com...eraccords.html
    Then he also has some of the best "beach" fragrances, imo. At the Beach 1966 & Mr. Hulot's Holiday.
    Another one of my favorite aquatic fragrances is Antonia Flowers Sogni del Mare (Dreams of the Sea) inspired by Cape Cod.
    The Different Company's Sel de Vetiver is lovely but pricey.
    Happy hunting!

    Another vote for Calpyso Marine.

    I have Calypso Marine, which is fairly musky. I can also recommend REM, from Reminiscence, the Parisian jeweler. This one isn't as grounded in reeds and bracken (and I will add that the CSP Aqua Motu, a great favorite of many, smells of stuffing seasoning on me) and is sweeter with a kind of ouzo note. It's the most wearable of the marines, even if slightly more empty-headed.

    Here are my favourites aquatics:

    L'Eau par Kenzo
    Cacharel Eau d'Eden
    The Body Shop Oceanus
    Yves Rocher Ming Shu
    Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gio


    and Davidoff Cool Water Women, which is more marine.
    If you were to say to the grown-ups: “I saw a beautiful house made of rosy brick, with geraniums in the windows and doves on the roof,” they would not be able to get an idea of that house at all. You have have to say to them: “I saw a house that cost $20,000.” Then they would exclaim: “Oh, what a pretty house that is!”

    Think about it...
