Cologne Masters Thoughts

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 and Nautica Blue isn't too far behind. This Nautica Voyage cologne review is the only one worth reading if you're looking for something halfway decent.

Enough about the other Nautica fragrances and on to Voyage.

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

Nautica Voyage is light enough to wear to the gym, but has enough of a flavor where it stands out enough from a criminal lineup so you could differentiate it from a crowd. All in all, you can't beat the price for this fragrance.

My Experience Wearing It

I've mentioned before in some of my other reviews that I take every fragrance out for a test drive for a period of 1-2 weeks and for my Nautica Voyage review, I did the same thing.

I started off by making my purchase on Amazon where I buy all my fragrances. If you're wondering exactly which one I purchased... 

I then continued my journey to the world to test. For the first week or so of wearing it, I don't say ANYTHING!

I always look to see if people notice it on their own and if they do I'm always curious of what they say. 

Surprisingly, people did notice me wearing this fragrance! 

I would get comments like, "You smell nice" or "What's that you're wearing today?".

The reactions weren't large in number, but it was enough to know that people could smell it when they were in close proximity. This means it had average sillage.

Also, when I get home from work, I secretly test my girlfriend to see if she notices me wearing it after a full day of work.

She did notice it!

So I knew the longevity was good, however she said it was faint, but you could still notice it if you were to get in close.

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

After going for unsolicited comments and compliments, I actually seek out the opinionated dudes and gals from work to see what they think.

One of my co-workers who never wears cologne straight up bought it. The situation was that he wanted to start wearing a fragrance but didn't want to spend too much. Turned out he liked it along with his fiancé.

The general consensus for all parties was that they found the scent pleasant. They didn't say it was the greatest thing they ever smelled, but they did find it appealing to wear.

What do the Critics Say?

Fragrance Bros -  "High Quality Cheapie!"

Fragrantica - 4.07/5 stars

dracdoc - "A perfect 10"

These are some of the most liked and appreciated websites regarding fragrance reviews. 

Fragrance Bros Video Review

Ok so this review is not CologneMaster's video at all. When I started looking at reviews around the YouTube world, this is one that I came across that I felt nailed what I was thinking.

These guys do a great job and I reference their opinions and thoughts often. Make sure you give them a subscribe if you like watching videos instead.

Reviews From Cologne Master Fans

Here is a guy that should be writing fragrance reviews full-time. In a matter of face, I asked him he wanted to. He knocks this out of the park.

"Green and aquatic notes when blended can be so light, cool, and refreshing.

That's what Nautica achieves with this blend.

Nautica Voyage transports you to an open nature shower of greens, and breeze.

The rumors are true. Nautica Voyage is a scent for the gym. It's inoffensive. It's like sipping an ice-cold cucumber juice after a strenuous back or chest day.

It stays with you while working out for an hour until you shower. If my workout routines were longer, Nautica Voyage would have still prevailed.

On non-gym days, longevity is around seven hours on clothes before it becomes too close to the fabric to notice.

Five hours on the skin and you can kiss it goodbye.

The person who wears this ideally doesn't care about fashion. He wears what he likes and is comfortable in his own skin. You would find the person wearing this fragrance in an Aeropostale shirt or do we dare say... Nautica.

The wearer of this fragrance never compromises comfort for style. Probably for a guy that preferences girls."  ___mata

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.

if you LIKE all or at least 3 of
Versace Pour Homme for men
Versace Man Eau Fraiche for men
Blue Seduction Antonio Banderas for men
Allure Homme Sport Chanel for men
Fan di Fendi pour Homme Acqua for men
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 lifestyle..in 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?

Young Men

For Summer Time!

Need something for work

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: 4

Nautica Voyage is one of the best colognes for young men, best selling, best cheap fragrances, and most popular.

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.

Where to buy?

CologneMasters purchase most of their stuff straight from Amazon. 

I recommend getting it from the same seller I got it from and you can do so by clicking on this picture.

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!

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

  • 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.
