Our Review of Nautica Voyage-83

Nautica Voyage N-83 ReviewThe cologne is classified as an Aromatic Aquatic fragrance, and it does have a clean, refreshing scent. It was introduced in 2013, and is similar in some ways to the original. While this cologne is slightly more complex than other Nautica men’s fragrances, is does lack the projection that many of the more expensive brands carry.

Fragrance Notes

This relatively new cologne from Nautica features top notes of spicy mint, petitgrain, and sea notes. This gives it the refreshing scent that has come to define Nautica’s line of men’s colognes. The softer middle notes help to round the fragrance with nutmeg, lavender, and cardamom, while the base notes of musk, sandalwood, and cedar make it a cologne designed for men.

The Scent

One of the first notes that you smell are the sea and lavender, which give it a fresh and clean feel. While the lavender can smell slightly soapy, it is balanced out by the mint and cedar. Overall the cologne is cool and refreshing, and the sea notes are the ones that will linger. Even though it lacks body and complexity, it is a nice clean scented cologne that is perfect to wear during summer outings.

The Appearance

Even the Nautica box will make you think of cool blue water with its nautical appearance. The short glass bottle is not designed like a sailcloth, but still reminds you of the ocean. The clear glass container highlights the blue liquid, and the elegant silver top is the perfect addition. It is a beautiful bottle that will blend in with any fragrance collection, or will look stunning by itself sitting on your counter.

Tim Lawson (perfume tester)

I used to wear Nautica Voyage when I was younger, and have to admit I was disappointed that it doesn’t smell the same. It does still have a fresh ocean scent, but I could not smell the base notes for very long. While this was disappointing, it is still a good cologne to wear for the summer. I wouldn’t pay a lot of money for it, but at its inexpensive price it does have a good value.
