Doesn't smell cheap on the far dry-down! That's a plus!
Nautica's Voyage is a beloved "cheapie" in the fragrance community. Always on some YouTuber's top 10 list about summer or spring. Lots of love. After two years I finally dove into the Nautica Voyage waters (so to speak); and low-and-behold I'm a believer! I've purchased cheapies from the Body Shop, Bath and Body Works; jumped on the Cremo bandwagon, and others (won't again); as most of them have a very cheap "hairspray" (80's Final Net Hairspray) in the far dry-down. Not sure how Nautica does it, but this doesn't smell cheap in that sense. Sure it's synthetic (to be expected), and perfect for spring and summer; and I'm thinking it must be the combination of lotus and green leaves that keep this one in good shape through the life of the fragrance. I enjoy this fragrance, as it shares similarities with Bvlgari's Man Cologne; but actually lasts longer... Ha! 7 / 10 in my books!
