    Default Looking for a reasonably priced, long lasting aquatic scent that is not too sweet

    Yep that about covers it. I would really like an aquatic perfume to wear that is long lasting and has some sillage. I am in the mood for fresh blue aquatic scents and I believe you guys will be able to help me out. I used to have this cheap aquatic body spray from Bath and Body works but they discontinued it. I don't remember the name of it but I loved it. Thanks in advance.

    Give CK Truth a shot. The women's version is a barely-sweet pink-and-green light floral that smells pleasantly dewy. I really like it.

    You might want to check out Tirrenico and Sel Marin. Surely not cheap but well worth experiencing...maybe a decant?

    +1 For Profumi del Forte's Tirrenico. Spendy, but quite nice.

    Also, Profumi de Firenze Brezza di Mare is fabulous and so is Hilde Soliani's Acquiliiisssssima.

    But bang for the buck, I like the new Tocca Graciella. It has a pear note in it, and watery florals. Very nice. And not too sweet.

    Calanques by L'Occitane, my favourite aquatic fragrance. Smells just like the beach, no suntan lotion or fruits.

    Hermes' Eau de Merveilles comes to mind.

    Thanks so much everyone for the replies. I would have responded sooner but there has been a lot of crazy stuff going on. I would definitely lik to try some of these out and will have to make a list. It will take some time because of our budget, but I appreciate your thoughtfulness. Peace
