Description
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.

Not a fan
Thought this would be more aquatic smelling, or at least fresh and citrusy, but all I got from it was spice & not even in a good way. No grapefruit whatsoever. Bummer.

Like Acqua Di Gio but more complex
I really liked this with my skin. It smells really fresh but has a slight woody hint. Not quite as sparkling fresh and watery iconic as Acqua di Gio but also not as showery fresh as the regular Issey Miyake. If you're looking for an in-between this is it.

Nice fragrance for warm weather.
The first thing I noticed when I used this fragrance was the grapefruit top note. Where most citrus scents tend to be brighter, the grapefruit was darker than I was expecting and more upfront than any of the other notes. I did find it somewhat off-putting at first, but the heavier grapefruit note evened out once the fragrance dried down and worked well with the other notes. It's clean, fresh, with just the right amount of citrus kick to give it some nice character. The scent cloud didn't have a lot of range (I find that a good thing for this kind of fragrance), but the scent did last a while on my skin (though the full potency of the fragrance dwindles after only a few hours). So this is one that you'll need to apply heavily or reapply throughout the day. All in all, this is a nice fragrance for invigorating spring and summer days.

Refreshing!
I've tried the other Miyake scents and this one is just as refreshing as his others. Oceanic expedition is a touch less sweet with stronger aqua marine notes. You'll need to apply more often but that's no problem with Scentbird's unique sprayer. I'm very pleased with the service.

Great Summer Scent That Makes You Feel Like You're on a Northern California Coast
I love this scent, but that may be because it reminds me of a trip I went on that was very relaxing. It has a designer feel to it, but it does not smell like anything you would find at your typical department store. The vibe I get is that of a Northern California coastal area. Good for a cooler summer day.

Good starting cologne
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.

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.
