    Default Name of blue bottle cologne

    Hey guys, I'm trying to find the name of a cologne that my dad once had. My dad doesn't know the name of it and I'm trying my best to recall what I remember about it. The bottle (which is long gone) didn't have a name/label on it and I don't remember the smell (except obviously it smelled great or I wouldn't be looking for it ). The cologne was released at the lastest in 2000 (another words it came out mid-to-late 1990's). The bottle was dark blue and it had a silver top. The body had an oval/oblong shape. Here is a pic I drew on MS Paint (lol) from what I remember:



    This is the closest pic I found. The actual cologne bottle isn't as rounded as this one but hopefully it gives you a better idea.



    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

    I kinda thought Polo blue, but that was an early 2000 release. Wow, talk about a fishing expedition LOL.

    Haha no kidding. Yeah, it's def not Polo Blue. I've been trying to find the name of this cologne since 2006. Everytime I go to a new department store, I ask the sales rep if they know what I'm talking about lol. I'm pretty positive that this cologne is discontinued but I still need to know the name >_< The long search continues.

    I was thinking of either an Aqua Velva type frag. It may be something from Lanvin though. Also kind of looks like Natori, but that's a woman's frag.

    No, that isn't it. The bottle I drew is what it looks like. BTW CanwllCorfe, that person's avatar is somewhat similar. Both bottles have those round ridges but that isn't it either lol. Good catch though!

    Hey Chuck, they don't sell Blue Stratos in the U.S. anymore right? From what I gathered online, it is sold in foreign markets such as the U.K. As always, thanks everyone for your contribution!

    What other scents did your dad have? If he used drug store scents like Old Spice, then chances are this bottle was a drug store scent as well. Conversely, If your dad used department store scents or niche brands, then this bottle could be one of those...

    Either way, it could help to narrow it down...

    The only other cologne's I remember him having were Escape by Calvin Klein and Pleasures By Estee Lauder. He stopped wearing cologne and I don't think he's owned one for some years now. I hope this helps!

    OMG YES!!! That is the one! Blue bottle, silver cap, no label/logo. Thank you so so much everyone for your time and effort and especially to you, Bossa Nova for finding it I can now put this long search to rest (4yrs!).

    P.S. I don't think my drawing was too off considering the last time I saw the bottle was in 2001 lol. Thanks again everyone!

    Fruity/minty feel at first, along with strong geranium, which persists. Vanilla/musky base.

    Good work Bossa Nova...When I saw your post, I had a strong feeling that this must be it...

    Hopefully it smells as good as I remember it to be. I'll let you all know after I buy a bottle.

    Thank you Greenage! I looked up Fragrancenet on ResellerRatings (http://www.resellerratings.com/store/FragranceNet) and it didn't look good. I did manage to find it being sold by power sellers on eBay (most have excellent feedback/rating) and by sellers on Amazon (also good ratings) so I plan on purchasing a bottle soon.

    I have been on a trip down memory lane recently, trying to cheer myself up a bit by getting a hold of many of the old things and old products I was using a few years back in 1992.

    I found this thread by doing a Google search as it is exactly the same -- almost -- fragrance description that I'm searching for but not the one..

    It was 1992 and I was buying a fragrance in a blue bottle, it came boxed.....it was a melon, citrus type of scent....summery ...if I remember it had a white picture/drawing of a seagul (or bird of some sort) on the bottle ....(but no it wasn't Blue Stratos!).....I thought it might have been made by Dolce and Gabbana or Armani ....but I've searched under these house's for all previous years from '92 back and couldn't recognise it..
    ---the name has gone from my memory completely........it could have even had the US flag logo on the box....but it wasn't Cool Water ....at least I'm prety sure as the bottle doesnt look how I remeber it and I really dont think that was the name of it...
    the bottle was cylindrical with a cone top ......it's really got me baffled -- I just can't remember it at all and yet I was living in a totally humid city and I was buying this product freaquently....

    Anyone out there vaguely happen to know or be able to suggest what it was??.........any possible leads??

    I just wanted to say, referring to fragrancenet...I've had 2 orders through them and they've both been perfect. They're one of the biggest online sellers of frags, I feel like it's a case of the satisfied don't rate and the vocal minority who have a messed up order find somewhere to vent.
