    Default Aquatics with good longevity.

    I know aquatics aren't too popular around here, but I'm young, and I like smelling "fresh." I love Perry Ellis 360 red, but it's too weak and doesn't last. Are there any long lasting aquatics? Would YSL Live Jazz and Halston Unbound be good?

    I've had good experiences with Halston Unbound, Givenchy Pour Homme (Red Bottle) Fougères Marines and Essenza Di Zegna.

    Also add Mugler Cologne, Original Vetiver and Silver Mountain Water.

    Would Cool Water or Cool Water Frozen work well for me (longevity and smell wise)?

    Issey Miyake l'eau d'Issey is the king of longevity for aquatic fragrances. Azzaro Chrome is also very long lasting, but often Issey will last on me through a shower.

    Issey Miyake L'eau D'Issey Eau D'ete Summer Edition - I could smell this on a test card 4 days after I sprayed it. I don't know if it would be considered a classic aquatic scent, unless eating summer fruit around a swimming pool counts.

    Forget everything the others have recommended............Z Zegna (Zanye Ya) is the best aqautic out there. Period. Erolfa is nice, SMW is gorgeous, but Z...a pedestrian designer entry is superior.....superior to AdG, 360 Red, Tommy Bahama So Cool, L'eau D'Issey....It is possibly the best thing you would EVER find at Dillards...an aquatic that becomes a second skin musk more beautiful than L'eau par Kenzo (which is nearly impossible) and more gorgeous (though not as potent as) Fougeres Marines by Montale

    I'm young and like aquatics too. Do yourself a favor and check out the Creed line, especially Silver Mountain Water. Best longevity I've ever experienced with an aquatic, I only ever need one spray for the day.

    And definitely buy online, you get Creeds for MUCH cheaper online.

    You'd probably also enjoy Bond No. 9's Wall Street. Insanely long lasting for an aquatic.

    Aqva Marine by Bulgari last about 11 hours on my skin and it heavy on the marine notes.

    Others would be Kenzo Pour Homme and Aqua di Aqua both of these have the deep true iodine marine note that some may find gross -

    I second these two. Though more fruity than aquatic, these two are just as jovial than anything else out there.

    Joop Nightflight! smelt horrible to my nose, and I love young, fresh aquatics. Azzaro Chrome is my vote. Lacoste Essential is more green than aquatic, but still good. It's been ages since I tested it though, can't speak to its longevity.

    Most of the scents mentioned above that I've tried have excellent longevity on me too.

    The only way you'll know for sure is to test them. Spray some of your final candidates on your wrist or back of hands. If they're still there with some strength after three hours, you can consider buying them.

    If they're weak or non existent at the three hour mark, forget them.

    Unbound lasts and lasts and lasts, but the tomato leaf opening is a bit of a rough patch for me. The drydown is fantastic though. best yet, it is cheap as hell!

    others to gander at millesime imperial (though people claim it doesnt last long, its a good 7-8 hours on me), and erolfa (good 10 hours, but not for me).

    This one, definitely!

    YSL Live Jazz is long-lasting, too, but I never thought of it as an aquatic scent.

    Thanks for all the suggestions guys! I'm definitely going to try Issey Miyake L'eau D'Issey, Unbound, Nautica and the Bulgari one. There's no way I'm buying Creed though, too expensive for my small-timer bank roll.

    You might want to add Givenchy Blue Label to that list.

    Great longevity, silage and the vetiver and cedar dry down is wonderful.

    lol I tried aqua marine by Bulgari, It smell very different then the original one but I love the original thinking of getting 30 ml for myself hehe.

    I'll second Erolfa.. it's a great aquatic!

    Also, give a sniff to Versace PH. It's a bit heavier than some aquatics - a bit woodier in the drydown and a bit more formal/elegant - but also has more depth than some, I feel. Excellent longevity on my skin!

    This one doesn't have much development but it's very very fresh and utilizes mint (a tricky note) quite well - Hugo XY. It's aquatic in the sense that it smells like water.. frozen. Like a freezer full of ice. Very clear/transparent smelling. Longevity is good but not great. Still, it's something quite different than most of the aquatics.

    Nautica Voyage is quite nice too and has a strong mimosa note in it. Very smooth.

    Lastly, I really enjoyed Nautica Oceans. It smells a bit like Allure Homme Sport (lots of bittersweet lemon action), but is saltier and somehow smoother, to my nose, especially once the lavender in the heart kicks in. This perfume is different too in that it does not use alcohol as a solvent but instead uses only pure water - this gives it a much different feel on skin. It is really refreshing to spray on, and of course there is not even a moment of alcohol in the topnotes.

    Out of all the ones mentioned so far, Fougeres Marines by Montale lasts the longest on my skin.

    L'eau de Issey is more of a citrus scent, but it does last for quite awhile as well!

    Happy sampling!

    Gonna drop down that Escada Moon Sparkle for Men has miraculous longevity on my skin - especially for an aquatic. I can still smell it strongly 16+ hours after application.
