Perhaps Essenza di Zegna
I'm looking for a new aquatic scent. I really liked Bleu but it didnt last very long on my skin. My girl liked it though. I dont really wanna buy it again if I'm honest. I'd like to continue to explore other scents. I have blvgari aqua and curve and di gio already so I dont want any of those. Lead me towards some other great aqua/spicy colognes please.
PS. Blue smells good to me..it does. But I feel when Curve gets more compliments at 20 a bottle then bleu on me..then Bleu is probably not my scent.
Perhaps Essenza di Zegna
I get 10+ hours longevity with Bleu. Unfortunately I dont like it much. IMO similiar grapefruit/woody vibe has Guerlain Homme Intense.

Sel Marin by Heeley - One is initially treated to a brisk duet of citrus from tart and tangy lemon as well as the fresh sweetness of bergamot. This evanescent opening becomes submerged in the awaiting heart. Here, in the middle, posidonia, with its sea-grass, vegetal highlight and oceanic spiciness, joins with a sprinkling of saltiness to furnish a delightful, seashore apparition. White musk interplays with this briny melange to mimic saltwater drying on the skin. Transitioning to the waiting base, earthy and salty vetiver, birch, with its wintergreen and somewhat medicinal aspects, as well as virginia cedar, with its deep woodiness with a hint of petrol, commingle to create the sensation of algaed, pier pilings exposed to air. A comforting drydown ensues. This singular composition has good, radiating projection, as well as good longevity, 7-9 hours.
I find it hard to find anything quite similar to Bleu, but you should try Bvlgari Man and Polo Blue.
In fact I would think a mix of these two would create something pretty close to a clone of Bleu

YSL L'homme Libre and Biother Homme Force are rather similar to Bleu.
Agreed. To my nose YSL L'Homme Libre is very similar to Bleu. And L'Homme Libre has a great lasting power.
