    Not sure about the difference between aquatic and oceanic? Three great oceanic scents:

    TDC Sel d' Vetiver
    Voyage d' Hermes
    Heely Sel Marin


    Some others that could pass for "aquatic" and are very good too:

    Molecule 03
    SL L' Eau Froide
    Andree Putman Preparation Parfumee
    Quicksilver Pour Homme
    Agar Aura Aquatica
    Ferre Bergamatto Marino

    I'm not a big fan of aquatics, but my wife loves them so I have to wear them occassionally to please her. Out of those that I do enjoy, Aqva and Aquva Marine top the list. Cool Water used to be up there, then I smelled GIT and now can't stand how synthetic CW smells.

    Considering Sel Marin but I live in San Diego... can I get opinions on this situation? Is Sel Marin worth buying for me? Also thinking about Millisime Imperial!

    I never really thought of MI as an aquatic, but I can kind of see why it might be considered one with the watery melon and salt. It would be my number one choice. Sel Marin is an amazing Oceanic fragrance, it literally smells like being on the water along the south coast of France. Both exceptional and worth a sampling.

    I'd say Kenzo pour homme and Cool Water are good. Acqua di gio is good too, but a bit faint.

    Kenzo PH - weirdly unique
    Boss Elements Aqua - not fresh, but very smooth, reminds of warm rain in an urban area where it's mixed with concrete
    Fahrenheit Aqua - like Boss EA, not a typical fresh fragrance

    And then there are always mentioned for obvious reasons -

    Bvlgari Aqua
    L'eau d' Issey
    Acqua di Gio
    Davidoff Cool Water - albeit not strictly aquatic but rather aromatic fragrance
    Davidoff Adventure Fraiche - really nice one and off the radar, although wouldn't say it's aquatic
    Guerlain L'eau

    Can second Sel Marin, Creed MI and Erolfa, as well as Eau d'Issey. And Erolfa is for the seaside indeed, especially the pre-reformulated version on cooler days.

    Ocean by Bath and Body Works. By far the best of their own brand offerings for men. A genuine aquatic that smells superb and is true to the genre. Any man willing to wade through the girl-iest store at the mall to find the men's section will be well rewarded for it with this and their C O Bigelow range of shaving and grooming products.

    I visit this store almost weekly and they know me embarrassingly. I'm either getting Japanese Blossom foaming hand soap for the house or travel hand lotions for my daughters. I also load up on these men's body washes. I enjoy almost all if them but haven't purchased the scents. They have a new one called Paris that is OK. I might try one for a weekend scent

    As for the thread..Bulgari Aqua

    just grabbed Inis by Fragrances of Ireland. $45 for 3.3oz (cheaper online but I was supporting a local store). Its a zesty marine citrus frag. kinda like L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme without the woods. I love salty/ozonic scents and this fits the bill.

    Thus I agree with Jack (I find issy and adg a bit nauseating).

    I'm not even a big creed supporter but i have to say MI would be my favourite aquatic.

    Are there any aquatics that aren't really sharp? In everything that I've tried there has been a horrible sharpness that I can't stand. Even Nautica Voyage has it, and MI just smells like Neutrogena Acne ointment to me.

    I'm so surprised that Kenzo Pour Hommedoesn't get more love. Its one of the best, even if its not heavily fruity like Aqua di Gio. I'm also partial to Subtil Pour Homme by Salvatore Ferragamo.
    Fall/Winter Rotation:

    Lancme Hypnse
    Lanvin Avant Garde
    Zegna Intenso
    Dior Homme Intense
    Thierry Mugler Taste of Fragrance
    Prada Amber Intense Pour Homme

    If smelling good was a crime, I'd be serving a lifetime sentence....

    For the calone bombs, Acqua di Gio and Issey PH.

    I just sampled Sel de Vetiver by The Different Company, and although it doesn't have calone, I think it is a brilliant summer aquatic.
    I think I'm going to need some of this when summer next rolls around.

    Aqua Fahrenheit for sure-you can smell the quality ingredients just like every other Dior. I know DHS isn't an aquatic but it is without a doubt the absolute BEST designer summer frag.
    Well enjoying what you're wearing is crucial, it is of the utmost importance to wear something that others like as well.
