    Default Can anyone reccomend some aquatics to sniff out?

    I've just brought Bulgari Aqua pour Homme, which I think smells amazing, and recently brought Coolwater (the reformulated one, I assume) and am fairly underwelmed by that, but it's nice to wear to the gym. I've also got Ted Baker Skinwear, which I quite like, I would put that somewhere inbetween the two in terms of how much I like it ~ would you regard that as an aquatic ~ it smells 'aquaticy' (is that a word?!? :-) ) to me?

    Given that, can anyone reccomend some other aquatics to try, as I like to have a list of fragrances to try. Cost wise, Creed money is my absolute top end, and I'm a bit of a cheapskate, so don't really have a 'low end' cost wise, so any in that price range would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    If you're going to be sniffing Creed then be sure to try Erolfa as well.

    THIS....by all means, but pay PARTICULAR attention to that Heeley Sel Marin. What great stuff. Calling it an "aquatic" really limits its boundaries because of the negative connotation that word tends to have. It has become a lot more than that for me.

    Thanks for all the replies, that certainly gives me some to try.

    I was struggling to find a Creed stockist outside of london, but notice that John Lewis & Selfridges are listed as stockists in the Trafford Centre, and am accross that way soon, so I shall give them a sniff then; many of the other appear to be in one or more of my usual haunts, so that's all good.

    Thanks agin for the help.

    Just a quick reply to say I've added most of these to my 'to test' list, and am having a great time nipping into various stores when I've got the odd moment to try them out. Nothing so far beats Bulgari Aqua pour Homme, in my opinion, although I've yet to try any of the more niche or unusual ones. Thanks for everyones help, once more.

    Heely Sel Marin, Millesime Imperial l, Bond No 9 Wall Street are all pretty safe aquatics.

    I don't wear aquatics. I can't recommend any! I must admit I have prejudice against them.
