Fond memories of this guy.
Top: Apple, Bergamot, Spearmint.
Middle: Jasmine, Amber, Moss.
Base: Vetiver, Oak, Musk.

I have fond memories of this tied up with my high school days, such good times. Now on to the fragrance, this is IMO the ONLY frag from the house of Nautica that stands out above all the other typical aquatics they produce. This is not an aquatic.. THANK GOODNESS! Its rather a nice take on a oriental fresh fragrance.

The spearmint & apple is what I get from the beginning which creates a nice feel, then about 15 minutes later the middle notes appear & it becomes fresh, I detect no base notes except for the musk.

This is a EDC which will not last a long period of time, I wish it came in a stronger strength. I suggest getting the shower gel & or bar soap to layer it with, I have both. All in all Nautica did a decent job with this 1, it's a pitty it is discontinued. Its great for jogging, errands, working out etc.. I will always have a bottle of this because it takes me back to a point in my life I can never go back to.
