Good laid back scent
Feels light and airy, with a little bit of sexy to keep things interesting. Very nice and not terribly strong (seriously though, it's really not very strong). Got a little bitter after sitting on my skin for a couple hours, but not irredeemably so.

Not what I wanted
This is definitely a man’s cologne so I was duped! I select women’s perfumes and that was amongst the selections. Moving on.... not a scent I’d like for my significant other. This all could be just chemistry, others may like so it still give it a try.

Explosively Orange - my favorite "aqua" type cologne
This has the classic "aqua" smell. It has a very sweet orange smell, but it is still extremely clean. It's a great twist on aqua. If the weather is warm enough for shorts, this is a go-to.

Nothing 'Aqua' about it...
When first sprayed on it smells a BIT lime bug spray or some kind of chemical. After half an hour it calms down to a citrusy, kind of sharp. All in all not BAD, i feel i should've gone with straight up Bvgari Aqua (blue bottle). Not horrendous but DEFINITELY not a keeper😑

Give it some time
When I first smelled it I was super turned off. Smelled super spicy and very old man like. But the next day I decided to put it on. It turned out to be very nice and is a good fresh summer smell but still has some spice to it. Good for August or September.

Grew on me
At first when I received this fragrance, it was fairly sharp to my nose. The citrusy top notes was something I hadn’t really been used to. After a few wears out and about casually and at work, it really started to grow on me. Now I can safely say that this is becoming one of my favorites. I’ve had a few compliments from it as well. Definitely a great fresh choice. Seems to me it’s a pretty casual wear as well.

The flanker may be better than the original
Very few times you'll have a flanker that usurps the original, but this may be one of those times. Orange citrus and pink flowers are the same from the top notes all the way through.

Great choice!!
This scent is very strong like a ocean wave hitting you in the face! It combines the citrusy, sweet oranges, and the salty ocean notes that pair very well together. It dries down and leaves a very clean, masculine scent that the ladies (or whatever you're into) will love...guaranteed! Anyone that smells this likes it so it's a definite winner.

Sophisticated and mysterious
This fragrance is an interesting mixture of initial spiciness, followed by a layered mix of amber and masculine notes in addition to a more subtle citrus-inspired herbal quality that fills in the spaces, leaving the experience as a wonderful layered impression. I wear it more in the evening than daytime, but enjoy reaching for it.

Poseidon Vs. Aquaman
This smells like the ocean in a bottle, you can smell the salt, the minerals in the water; it is definitely a summertime fragrance it smells more soapy and clean on clothing vs salty on skin so be careful, I like it for what it is its a different take on a aqua scent most are fruity and fresh, but this dug deep making a classic battle between sea legends and by the end of the battle making a truce, you can do casual ...t shirt and jeans, it can be an office scent, but i prefer it being used on vacation in a hot location or by the beach, or just hanging out something that allows you to work up a bit of sweat or help it radiate, it'll mix nicely to your suprise.
