Here is Sel Marin for me
Thread: Sel Marin = Voyage
I just sampled the 20ml decant of Sel Marin that I recently purchased and I swear this stuff smells EXACTLY like Nautica Voyage. Not a completely unpleasant smell, but it does make me extremely nauseous. Has anyone else made this connection?

Here is Sel Marin for me
have both and hasn't been wearing either for a long long time
as from memories, there's no similarities between those two for me

It smells like clean,fresh, white sheets. There is nothing inherently wrong with that. The problem is that the smell is magnified X100! I scrubbed my hand for 5 minutes straight and I STILL smell it. Too bad it makes me nauseous.
I see no simalarities really. Are you sure you don't mean Nautica Oceans? That smells closer to Sel Marin IMO...
no similarities for you!

Bummer man. Sorry you dont like it. Ive tried a sample and it didnt really smell like voyage to me.
I guess aquatics just aren't my thing. I dislike Bvlgari aqua and marine, Voyage, and now Sel Marin. I like L'eau d'issey and acqua di gio, and Millesime Imperial but the former fragrances really embody a true aquatic imo. Oh well, can't win em all....
I can see the similarities but I do not find them to be exact.
The only similarity I see is that they are both dubbed aquatics. Other than that they are totally different. Nautica voyage is a decent, cheap gym scent, whereas Sel Marin is an actual marine interpretation with seasalt and seaweed. Just my take.

Not similar at all in my opinion. One is natural smelling and the other is not natural smelling freshness. Sel Marin is a salty, sea water, slightly green scent that smells very natural. Nautica Voyage is fresh light blue citrus solvent and apple juice scent - not natural smelling, but is fresh nonetheless.
I own both but to me they seem quite different.
It seems odd that you'd say you like AdG, L'eau D'Issey and MI but don't like Aquatics. Those smell more aquatic to me - especially AdG - than Aqva and Aqva Marine.
I have a 100ml Gucci Pour Homme 2003 that I'll swap for Reflection Man or De Bachmakov. PM me if interested.
I have both. I find Sel Marin to be a clean aquatic blast that never gets to smelling artificial after several hours. Voyage starts off as a nice aquatic scent, but then starts to smell a bit less natural to me in the drydown. Voyage is not a bad scent by any means, I like it. I just think Sel Marin one of the best aquatics out there. I also get seaweed in Sel Marin and that's one thing I don't find in Voyage.
