    A spicy aquatic with great longetivity would be Rochas Aquaman. I used to like this stuff, but I rarely use it
    anymore. Ironically, I think it's longetivity makes it grow tiresome more quickly.

    Take a sniff of Givenchy Blue Label.

    A very nice aquatic with notes of cardamom and pepper. Also has vetiver and cedar at it's base.

    Great longevity and projection.

    Kenzo Pour Homme is kind of salty/sweet, somewhat spicy. Very unique scent.

    Blue Label is ok, but to me very synthetic.

    Both of these are pretty spicy on me, Zgb. Especially 212, though I'm not sure it's necessarily an aquatic.

    Basenotes Directory lists its notes as:

    Top Notes
    * Citrus Leaves, Cut Green Grass, Spice Leaves.
    Middle Notes
    * Ginger, Green Pepper, Gardenia.
    Base Notes
    * Sandalwood, Insence, Transparent Musk.

    I definitely get the spice leaves (whatever they are) in the top, and that is my favorite part. It does get fresher and less spicy as it dries down though. Still, this again shows me that fragrances are perceived differently by each wearer.

    If you can find it, Roots for Him by Roots should suit your needs. It is a spicy aquatic with great projection and 12 hour longevity on my skin. The green notes, and especially the watercress note make this one unique.

    You might also want to try the readily available Oxygene Homme by Lanvin, which has both aquatic and spicy elements. Although projection is moderate, I get a decent 8 hours of longevity from this one.

    DNA (original) is the spiciest aquatic that I have smelled. I am not sure about longevity or projection.

    I have not smelled New West yet.

    Carolina Herrera Aqua seems to fit the bill. its aqua di gio with the musk inside replaced with spices instead.

    My perception of "spicy" i have never smelled in any of the aquatics...nonetheless I love zegna Z for it's longevity and projection.

    I don't find 212 men spicy.....just some freshness and white musk...that's it. Pretty simple fragrance to me.

    Bvlgari Aqva Pour Homme is spicy.
    Kenzo pour homme I find very unique and interesting fragrance.

    Yep! This is particularly why I find it to be at the top of the class for aquatics. The color of the juice (or at least the bottle) is very fitting, it feels very dark, and like you're out in the middle of the ocean, as opposed to on the shore.

    -1 on the Blue Label, personally I find it to be very synthetic both in smell and feel. Smell itself reminded me of Polo Sport a little in the opening which was okay, but for the remainder of the time, all I could smell was a soft floral/slightly aquatic fragrance sitting very close to the skin for about 4 hours before it's gone completely.

    As for recommendations, I'm gonna say to check out Parah. You can get a sample from frag net, it's a very peppery aquatic, nice projection, and even nicer longevity. It reminds me of a more aquatic and clear version of Tommy Bahama. Which for that matter, TB can be classified in at least 5 different categories, one of them being aquatic. Finally, I'm gonna recommend Michael Jordan, which too falls into several categories. It's green, spicy, aquatic and fresh.

    Parah gives me 8-10 hours, TB gives me 6-8, and MJ gives me 6-8. Sometimes though on both TB and MJ I can get up to 10 hours.

    Another vote for New West- it immediately came to mind when I saw this thread. At least try it before you buy anything else!

    Oxygene Homme is somewhat spicy, with some grapefruit added.

    If I apply some Millesime Imperial on clothing (usually cotton) is last and lasts. Not sure if it's aquatic enough for you though.
