    Default Best fresh/aquatic fragrance?

    hi,
    i tried a sample of davidoff cool water yesterday and it has fantastic longevity on me i can still smell it clearly today,not sure what to make of it i get some mint and sometimes a fruity smell,and quite fresh,my wife thinks its nice but a bit weird but she does like it,is cool water a good choice or is there a better aquatic/fresh smell out there with as good longevity and projection? thanks for your help.

    Sel Marin by Heeley is one I really enjoy.

    I'm not a fan of aquatics (I find the main aquatic notes a bit synthetic and slightly bilgey), but I'd agree that Cool water is likely the best in mainstream. Another classic in the genre would be New West.

    Some interesting examples in expensive niche territory, as others were saying.

    Millesime Imperial for niche and Bergamatto Marino for designer.

    You're better off with Cool Water in my opinion.

    The term better never applies to anyone but the wearer. So really you would be best served setting a price range and either getting samples sent to your home or getting out to some places to smell some stuff.

    AdG Essenza is one that I Iike; most of them are second-rate copycats in this category.

    The best aquatic I've found is ASAQ Blue Amber. Amouage Ciel Man is very good, it's incredibly refined however does get a little creamy perhaps from the sandalwood in the dry down.

    These would be my top suggestions for the best aquatics at the moment, but I do have a soft spot for L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme because of it's outstanding performance, particularly in high heat and humidity that can see most aquatics fall apart.

    I have never understood people defining GIT as fresh, more deep and musky to me, also i get a fair bit of powder and its quite sweet.

    Nothing bright, refreshing or summery to me whatsoever, on the contrary i find it a little dark and introverted.

    every bodies fresh is kind of different. For me I get verbana and violet leaf greenness, hardly any powder and on cool days i get this purple hard candy/lemony freshness with an underlying smoooveness of sandalwood. i dunno, to me that seems fresh
