            Let’s Get Started, A Nautica Voyage Review!

            Welcome back to another fragrance review done by your favorite self-proclaimed cologne master Jason that will blow your mind. Today we are conducting a Nautica Voyage Review and we are trying to investigate, why this fragrance continues to be one of the top selling fragrances on the market today.

            Not only is it one of the top selling fragrances to date, but it’s also one of the most popular! Currently around 9,400 people head to Google each month just to search for this fragrance which is a crazy high number for such an inexpensive fragrance!

            Is your mind starting to blow yet? I know mine was when I started doing some research. Lets continue…

            CologneMaster Awards Received


            If you’re wondering what an award is, if a fragrance hits the top 10 of one of our famous lists, it earns an award and is showcased here.

            What Does The CologneMaster, Jason Think About Nautica Voyage, EDT?

            • Top notes: Apple, Green Leaves
            • Middle notes: Mimosa, Lotus
            • Base notes: Amber, Musk, Oakmoss, Cedar

            Of all the Nautica fragrances, this is by far my favorite. If you’ve read any of my other Nautica reviews for fragrances such as Nautica Classic and Nautica Blue, you know that I don’t particularly like them. In a matter of fact, one of them I absolutely can’t stand and I’m trying to figure out what to do with the bottle.

            Nautica Classic is currently the lowest overall rating I have ever given a fragrance at 2.1 and Nautica Blue is not too far behind at approximately 5.3.

            Nautica Voyage is the exception to the rule when it comes to the other Nautica scents. Voyage as a starting point, has a much better longevity. This alone takes it from a below average cheap scent, to an above average fragrance that is respectable.

            To me, when you first spray this fragrance, you notice a sea breeze slapping you in the face along with the notes apple, and green leaves.

            Not only do I find this fragrance good for a cheapie, but so do other big name reviewers!

            Fragrance Bros –  “High Quality Cheapie!

            Fragrantica – 4.07/5 stars

            dracdoc – “A perfect 10

            In summation, this fragrance is an excellent purchase for anyone on a budget and looking for a summer fragrance.

            Nautica Classic Reviews from other people

            This guy sums up everything I’ve been trying to say…

            Nautica Voyage truly provokes a smell of fresh green leaves and apple which makes it a perfect scent for the summer. It will work well with clothes that are light colored and can be worn either casually or formally. It’s a rather simple fragrance but tends to get the job done.”

            For the price of this fragrance, it is one of the best fragrances on the market…

            “Smelling this and looking at the price tag.. just unbelievable.
            really amazing quality and longevity very simple and I would buy it for 3x the price
            I have the one with plastic cap “newer version” and I’m seriously amazed.

            trust me buy Nautica Voyage”

            And lastly, this guys does a great job at making a point…

            “I live near the beach.. It’s summer.. I enjoy drinking around the bars in various colour Ralph Lauren polo shirts.. I’m a very clean and groomed person.. I’m wearing nautica that compliments everything I’m doing in life.. I get compliments for my scent and best of all I’ve only paid 12 pound.. Who cares if it’s synthetic.. It just seems to fit my current 3 months I’ll ditch it and start wearing autumn fragrances with more balls.. This is just laid back heaven .. I feel the same about lacoste white and aqua Di gio but I’m giving nautica a go at a fraction of the price.”

            Who Should Buy Nautica Voyage?

            Age Group: 25 and younger

            It’s safe to say that Nautica Voyage can be worn by anyone and of any age. However, I would expect the best results would come from the younger crowd which is why I say under 25.

            Season: Summer

            This is a strong sell for the summer time. It makes you feel like you’re at the beach and it has the longevity that most aquatic scents fail to have.

            Time of Day: Day

            Without a doubt, this is a daytime scent. It’s light, fresh and clean. Everything you should be wearing during the day.

            Occasion: Smelling clean

            If you’re headed outside to the beach, Nautica Voyage should be your ticket. Also, feel free to wear it to the gym, work, school, or anything during the day.

            Gift?: Perhaps

            If you’re trying to buy a good fragrance and you’re on a budget, Nautica Voyage will work. It’s not a good typical purchase for a gift because people associate Nautica with being cheap.

            Longevity: Average

            For a cheap woody aquatic, this fragrance does pretty well for how long it lasts.

            Harmless? – Yes

            Nautica Voyage is safe to wear around anyone. It doesn’t have the ingredients to make people feel uncomfortable to be around you.

            Popularity – Popular

            Surprisingly, Nautica Voyage is pretty popular. Over 8,00o people search for it every month on Google which is in the top 10 of popular fragrances.

            Price – Amazing

            If you can get a bottle of fragrance for under $15 a bottle, that’s a pretty incredible deal.

            Awards – 0

            None Yet… Can guarantee it will soon

            Sexy – Not

            When hearing people describe this scent, the word sexy doesn’t come up. It’s not a bad thing, but it is something worth noting.

            Signature Cologne – No

            Not a good signature fragrance only because it should be worn primarily during the warmer months. I’ve heard people say that if you wear it during the colder seasons, the scent does not “warm up” so it smells more like a cucumber.

            • Could you tell me what year the Nautica Voyage fragrance came out? My boyfriend is saying back in the 90’s. Has it been out there that long? Thanks in advance if you know the answer.
