Different sites list different accords for this particular release. I saw no reason to split hairs about which one I thought was more correct. To me, this fragrance just doesn't warrant that type of effort on my part. Pure Nautica was released only a few years ago and is currently available in your neighborhood bargain bins for good reason. It's no crime for anyone to create and release a mundane scent. I simply don't understand the upside in their doing so.
It goes on with a rather sheer citrus-musk aspect that's not half bad. Within 5 minutes, the clarity of that opening is gone and replaced with a woody-marine-musk. I perceive it as cedar, although some may argue differently. In any event, the result affords me the meh-factor and I truly have others as simple that I would choose to wear over this. I suppose we like what we like and that's that.
Sillage is moderate and longevity is approximately 3 hours before dissipating into a skin scent. A Neutral rating from Aromi and a strong recommendation to sample before purchase.
