    Cool Good Citrus Aquatics - Recoomentations?

    Hey folks, looking for a list of light Citrus Aquatics, preferably with some longevity in the same vein as Love and Luck, Nautica Voyage and Lacoste pour Homme...Looking to expand my collection, any recommendations?

    I love colognes that smell fresh, aquatic, modern, clean!

    It's not 'aquatic', but Eau Sauvage might suit you.

    Bulgari Aqua pour Homme Marine by Bulgari - Initially, one is slapped with a bitter citrus, provided by the sharp grapefruit and sour neroli brigarade, slowy tempered by the fruitiness of sweet melons and somewhat medicinal cucumber. From afar, a sprinkling of saltiness beckons the invigorating opening to its waiting middle. Here, in the heart, a magnificent stew brews with the pine-like, tangy rosemary flower, coupled with what I venture to say is calone with its watery, marine and ozone accord as well as posidonia, with its sea grass, vegetal highlight and oceanic spiciness, to furnish a delightful, fresh, seashore apparition. Transitioning to its untroubled base, white cedarwood with its crisp, dry and clean woodiness carries the piece to its comforting drydown. This unique, brine composition, a treat to be enjoyed in the warm weather of spring and summer, has good projection and average longevity.

    Only a couple come to mind of the ones I have tried - Creed's MI (expensive) and Parlux's Bellagio for Men (inexpensive).

    Don't bother with Unforgivable. It's wretched. Try Unforgivable Multi Platinum, which is what people usually recommend as an MI alternative. Harder to find, but still pretty cheap when you do.

    L'Eau Par Kenzo is the only scent I can think of that qualifies as a citrus aquatic.

    Can't say i've ever really tried a true, brilliant citrus aquatic. Many related/close genres, but they are either lacking enough natural citrus to earn the term "citrusy", or are too sweet and fruity to not be called "fruity". I'll
    List a few favorites:

    Erolfa and maybe Bvlgari Aqva are the best "citrus aromatic oceanic" fragrances I've smelled.

    L'Eau Par Kenzo, Amouage Cirrus, and Bvlgari Aqva Marine are the best "chlorine aquatics", cannot really consider them citrus or oceanic, as they have no natural citrus, and their watery/aquayic accords smell more like indoor pools than real oceans or seas.

    The best "laundry aquatics" I feel are both Eau De Cartiers, and Mattiolo Uomo.

    The best "sandy aquatic", which also has a laundry nuance to it, is Amouage Ciel Man.

    The best "fruity citrus aquatics" are Millesime Imperial, Unforgivable Multi Platinum, Bond Wall Street, and Amouage Arcus.

    The best "citrusy green-floral aquatics" IMO are Silver Mountain Water, Xerjoff Mefisto, and Kilian's Prelude to Love.

    And some fresh citrusy scents (not necessarily aquatic but super fresh and modern, are either Hermes D'Orange Verte, Truefitt & Hill West Indian Limes, Penhaligon's EDC (yes it's modern). I'd recommend Selection Verte, some Nicolais, and Maitre Pour Le Jeune Homme, but those might not be quite modern enough for you, even though I feel they're timeless.

    Great post. I agree with Erolfa and Bvlgari Aqva, they are very good marine scents. I want to add Sel de Vetiver as a salty marine scent, although not really a citrus aquatic.
