SEA’S THE DAY. What does the ocean smell of?
This open question leads to thousands of answers, hence the endless possibilities of aquatic notes in fragrances. This particular category of smell is pretty new in the business, prominently based on the basic mix of seawater and citrus as it leans more toward fresh and floral scents.
Acqua Di Gio Profumo from Giorgio Armani and Polo Blue Eau de Parfum from Ralph Lauren are two strong contenders, followed by “sweetened” alternatives that include Kenzo Homme Eau de Parfum and Paco Rabanne Invictus Aqua.
Most importantly, given how ladies normally dig this class of scent, every guy should at least have one aquatic spritz at home, just in case.
