    Default What does acquatic smell like and what does ozone smell like?

    I dont think I've ever smelled ozone in a note, but I see it sometimes with fragrances I want at fragrantica. Acquatic like Nautica Voyage smells like 90s cologne to me. Linear, alcoholy, and a post shower scent 'clean'. Not a fan of the latter.

    To answer the thread question: From Scientific American - "Before the rain begins, one of the first odors you may notice as winds pick up and clouds roll in is a sweet, pungent zing in your nostrils. That's the sharp, fresh aroma of ozone"

    To my mind, aquatic is anything reminiscent of water. I often differentiate salt-water and fresh-water aquatics. Thus, Bulgari Aqua is salt-water, and Acqua di Gi˛ is fresh-water. Aquatic scents, accords and notes are often reminiscent of different situations and places. Cold Atlantic voyage, Caribbean beach, Mediterranean island, South American jungle lagoon, mountain stream, Arctic icy lake. Many different chemicals and combinations can be used to make people think "water". But when a fragrance's primary, strong impression on the smeller is "water", that is when I'll call a scent "aquatic".

    Water type or sea vibe is the best way to describe aquatic.

    Try Kenzo Pour Homme. One sniff is better than 1,000,000 words.

    One of the reasons why I love Erolfa is because of the ozonic notes.
