    For curiosity, what does one mean with seaweed smell? Seaweeds smell pretty bad to me, but perhaps it's just because I know them in their decayed state.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    Yeah - Sel Marin hits it pretty damn good. I don't know if I'd want to wear it / smell like it, but it nails that vibe spot on.

    Since seaweed smells quite a bit of salt water and iodine, unless it's begun to rot in the sun, you might want to try Annick Goutal's Vetiver - a big salty note along with iodine. Of course it's a vetiver fragrance first. You also may want to give Calypso Marine by Christiane Celle, another one that smells mostly of salt water.

    Kenzo pour Homme is the only scent I can unambiguously smell seaweed in, and it has excellent lasting power on me.

    Ditto. I like some of the others like Polo Sport, Erolfa and Goutal Vetiver (though it smells like Islay Scotch to me), but Kenzo PH is the one I find to have the most explicit seaweed note. Very unusual fragrance-- strangely dark for an aquatic scent. Sometimes a bit difficult, but I love it.
