    I like Lanvin L'Homme and GIT.

    I do find that MI and SMW have aquatic qualities, even though they don't smell like the typical calone drenched aquatics. SMW has a watery quality, while MI is salty (with a good dose of calone and melon).

    L'adventurier, would you care to comment on MI's longevity? Perhaps in general and compared to it's Creed brother SMW, as I believe you own/sampled/reviewed both?

    I was taken aback by its beauty when I sampled a spritz on my wrist a week ago, but my nose was already tired from a day's worth of wear already, so accurate longevity perception was not on the day's menu.

    Most of my wardrobe is aquatic and/or fresh. What I'm enjoying most right now:

    Bvlgari Aqva (still my overall favorite - very versatile aquatic)
    Gendarme (ultimate clean scent)
    Versace Pour Homme (mature AdG - the finish is awesome)
    L'eau par Kenzo (really growing on me fast)
    Bvlgari Pour Homme (great day to day scent for an office)
    Cool Water (wore again this week for the first time in weeks and was reminded why I like it)

    Hopefully I'll have L'eau d'Issey and Mugler Cologne soon too. They aren't in my wardrobe yet, but I really enjoy both of those as well.

    SMW has very good longevity on my skin, but I'm known to have skin that makes fragrances last long and project well. MI, on the other hand, doesn't last very long on me, but the ambergris drydown lasts forever (until the next morning). As for on clothes, both fragrances last for days. I once sprayed a hoodie of mine and a week later I could still smell MI - at the same time, MI dries down to a simple musk on my skin after a few hours. Must be chemistry. I strongly suggest getting a sample and wearing it a few times before passing it off or taking the alternative route and buying a bottle too soon.

    +1 on Paris Hilton Man ! Finally, someone who likes this as much as I do! (has always been my secret shame haha)
    But to me it's not as fresh-fresh, more like fruity fresh. Anyway...

    +1 on this too! Fresh with a dash of sharpness at the top, but unfortunately, doesn't last as long as I would like. Spanish cologne at its best (is it just me or it kinda smells like Denenes? Hehe). Good thing I found it when I did, I don't think AD is being distributed on the retail shelf in the Phils. anymore.

    +1 on Bvlgari Aqua too (ALWAYS my go-to aquatic frag) and I'm throwing in a vote for Angel Schlesser Homme as well.

    Default Re: Favorite fresh/aqua scent

    AQUA FRESH:

    + --However many + so far on Erolfa The best by the seashore.

    Himalaya A+ Anywhere.

    Vétiver by Annick Goutal --Marine Fresh with minerals

    212 Men H2O--El Cheapo fresh (at least it used to be cheap, until it was discontinued)

    Iceberg Twice Homme--Still a good El Cheapo fresh.

    Acqua di Parma Colonia-- Great Class act fresh.

    Bowling Green---Aromatic Fresh

    Gai Mattiolo Uomo--What you asked for!

    Quasar--Mellow aquatic and wonderfully demented. Newsprint+ Bananas.
    (It might still put Chrome and Baldessarini Del Mar out of business)

    Salt Air---by Demeter, and all Demeter scents are more or less nuts. This is upbeat though fleeting.

    CITRUS FRESH:

    Iskander----It blows your mind. Very strong yet Very fresh

    Signoricci---Another class act.

    Bois de Cédrat--It's a lemon! It's a lime!--It's Supercitrus!!

    Loewe para Hombre---Kick ass Spanish citrus.

    Versace l'Homme --Upbeat herbal/citrus.

    ---------------------------

    NEC: Infusion by Bombay Sapphire---Insane fresh! Yes, it smells exactly like Bombay Sapphire Gin


    I won't even get started on Coniferous (pine) fresh.
    These should keep you happy for a while

    Cheers,

    Mugler Cologne, CK Be and Eternity are the three "fresh" fragrances I wear most often, when I'm in the mood for that kind of thing...which is rare. They cover the "fresh" spectrum pretty well: Cologne is soapy-fresh, Eternity is green-fresh, and Be is musky-fresh. I don't do aquatics as a general rule, but L'eau d'Issey PH and Bvlgari Aqva are actually very well done.

    I don't think I have any aquatics, per se....

    Live Jazz is my SOTD, and it's fresh...in a green way, but I don't get anything "aquatic" about it.

    I like Essenza Zegna as a fresh citrus clean scent. Someone gave me a bottle of Lacoste Essential, which is the "freshest" frag I own, I think. It's nice enough, but honestly smells like the current crop.
    I like Horizon quite a bit...I've got a sample, and may get a bottle before they're all gone.

    Interested to hear that some find Gucci PHII to be "aquatic"----??? Or maybe it's just "fresh?"

    I love the obligatory "I dont like aquatics, but...", "I dont own many aquatics", "I'm not a big fan of aquatics", "If you twisted my arm and threatened to cut my head off, I would pick..." statements.

    You can pretty much guarantee at least 5 or 6 of those in any Aquatic thread around here.

    But, I love Aquatics, and my favorites are many. To me, there's a big difference between Fresh and Aquatic, so I'll just stick with Aquatic... MI (sure, it's aquatic), Metal Jeans, Givenchy Blue Label, Wall Street, and a real hidden gem, 1881 Summer.
    I'm a fresh scent junkie and proud of it!

    I would say Kenzo pour Homme Fresh. I've only worn in once but it's so different from the other fresh scents that I've tried that I think I should give it a nod for now. I can't wait to wear it again.

    For aquatics and fresh colognes I'm quite standard; my favourites in the fresh/aquatic category are probably:

    Chanel Allure Homme Sport
    L'eau D'Issey Pour Homme
    Acqua di Parma Colonia
    Cool Water
    Original Vetiver (it looks like I'll probably end up purchasing this pretty soon ready for the Spring)

    Silver Shadow Altitude is so so so good.

    Someone recommended this in a similar thread a whie back and after reading the small amount of positive reviews I decided to blind buy it at a fairly inexpensive price. Well sir, I applaud you. This juice is to die for!.. It's so unique to me, I've never smelled anything like it from any of the other designer frags. It almost resembles a melon accord, but there's no melon in there, I think it's the green pepper and the slightly sweet base working here. It's slightly aquatic but that's not the focus. Davidoff advertises this as a sky blue airy scent that's for older gent who fly planes.. I don't know about all that. I'm 26 and everytime I wear it, I visualize myself walking through a dense rainforest at sunrise coming upon a clear water lagoon with a cliff edge and waterfall on the other side. The air is misty from the morning dew and the temperature is cool yet starting to rise.

    Overall, this is an excellent scent with decent sillage and lasts around 4-5 hours on my skin. The heart of the scent is the best part which makes me eager to carry a small decant around with me to reapply every 4 hours, and just a few sprays is good. It's also not that expensive and I feel like I can be liberal with it.
