Tommy Bahama cologne review
The man behind this scent is the talented perfumer Frank Voelkl. He is the man behind some iconic fragrances such as I Love Dior and Reaction for men. The fragrance is a presentation that features a nautical theme.
The box is ocean blue with a rope design that encompasses the whole box. The bottle is a real work of art. The cap is unique and is reminiscent of a ship’s deck. It even has a nautical knot that uses a real rope. The bottle features an ocean blue color scheme.
This is a perfect fit for the theme they were going for. Finally, the sprayer is well designed. It sprays a perfect mist cloud of cologne.
So how does it smell? As soon as I sprayed it I noticed the citrusy top notes made up of a mix of Rosemary, Cardamom, Juniper, and Bergamot. This is a refreshing opening and a perfect fit for their oceanic theme.
This smell is supported by a cool heart note that consists of Freesia, Orris, Geranium, and Water lily. This gives the scent a cool feel that is reminiscent of an ocean breeze. Finally, the base notes are Moss, Patchouli, Cedarwood, and Musk. These notes provide the masculine foundation of the fragrance. In summary, the fragrance is masculine and refreshing.
This fragrance is really something special. I live close to the ocean so anything that reminds me of the ocean is a good thing. The smell is really relaxing in a way that you have to experience to really know.
Also, it makes you feel and look more attractive. This will be evident when you notice the amount of attention you will be receiving. Ladies love the scent and you are bound to receive tons of compliments.
So who needs it the most? This is a playful fragrance that has some alluring elements. Therefore, I recommend it for young and energetic men mainly 20 -35 years old. These are very active people. During these activities, they may form body odor that can ruin their day. this fragrance will ensure that they remain smelling fresh all day.
