A burst of energizing yuzu and bergamot leaps out from the opening of this scintillating and spicy fragrance. A heart of sheer ginger adds its appetizing heat to invigorating aquatic notes as rich sandalwood and a flash of minerally musk create appealing dynamic shifts in the dry down.

Issey Miyake L'eau D'Issey Pour Homme Oceanic Expedition main notes
Not strong at all when you first spray, which I love. And the scent lasts all day on me after a long work day. I smell hints of bergamot and like clean ocean breeze. I’m in love and will be buying a bigger bottle.
This cologne is good to start off with as it smells clean and fresh without any obnoxious and pungent notes; this can be a con for the fragrance as, in my opinion, it is one-dimensional and doesn't have a unique smell. It doesn't last me 3-4 hours however and if you're a solid fan of D&G light blue intense, this doesn't come close to it.
Good fragrance for summer/spring, but it's not something that will be my go-to fragrance.
While I liked the scent personally, it did not pass the ultimate test. My wife did not like the scent she claimed that it smelled like “sweaty man with cologne trying to cover it.” I had just jumped out of the shower and was excited to have her smell my new scent. Needless to say I was a bit deflated considering that I personally like the scent but as the saying goes happy wife, happy life. Back to the drawing board.
This cologne is perfect for work, most importantly for a night out with your lady. When I first sprayed it was strong and king of through me off. As it settle i fell in love with it. Chicago is windy so I sprayed some on my son because he like it. Went outside to play football and every time the wind blew I could smell it coming off of him. Very good cologne.
Worst cologne I have tried yet. Did not get any of the citrus notes. Strong but a negative in this case. Doesn't remind me of "oceanic expedition" in the slightest. I imagine the scent is what a Wilding would use for cologne on GOT.
The scent was very strong and not as described...disappointed with month's delivery. I have had an overall pleasant experience. Hope that customer service reads this and applies a credit or sends a replacement scent.
Your service sucks they have taken money out of my account for two months and I still haven't received a thing, Trying to cancel this BS service as we speak. So disappointed. A great idea to good to be true. I haven't received anything
Smells great, almost unisex like, with a bit of spicy mixed in. Doesn't seem to last long thought. Go for the ISSEY MIYAKE NUIT D'ISSEY instead, its in the black bottle in the same shape. Smells way better!
I found out that I'm buying a whole bottle of this. the citrus and ginger notes are perfect for me the seawater brings a nice wave of freshness to it without trying to drown you in it the petitgrain adds a nice calming touch ( Petitgrain is basically lavender but for men)...here's a tip when you get a new scent in the mail spray a little into the tube it came in and let it breathe you will find it less wasteful when first trying to decide if it is a smell for you
On me this has a very heavy grapefruit scent for the first 20-30 minutes and I don't like it at all. However, after that wears off, it becomes a pleasant fresh scent. This to me is a safe work fragrance that won't offend anyone around you. Longevity is about 4-6 hrs for me. I'd recommend trying it if you like fresh aquatics scents just get past the early grapefruit.
A very strong citrus frag. It is not lemon, more of a lemon/ Yuzu combination. The opening lasts about 45 minutes, but overall it is pretty linear thought the entire frag. I don't really get petitgrain or neroli in the frag, but rather I think it tones down the yuzu to make it smoother.
I would recommend L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme by Issey Miyake over this one.
Longevity: 7/10 (8-9 hours)
This has been the best cologne I have received so far. Almost everyone I met has noticed it (in a good way). Every time I go dancing, nearly every woman I dance with compliments me on the scent. Although a little different than my personal favorite scent, Davidoff's Cool Water, this has been a clear winner for me.
This fragrance is why I love ScentBird, and am happier each month with my decision to join. I never would have found this in a local store, or tried it on if I had. It was worth trying here on ScentBird, though, and I'm glad I did. I may end up buying a full-size bottle of this one. My wife likes it quite a bit, too.
