Quiksilver for Men : An Aquatic Fragrance for the Younger Males
Quiksilver for Men is one of the first lines of cologne made by the house of Quiksilver. Their first fragrance, like the rest of their products and designs, demonstrates energy, adrenaline rush, continuous movement.
This demonstration is further magnified by the house’s interest in boldness, risk taking and great recognition for genuine values—use of cutting edge technology, respect for nature, great and affordable value.
Their cologne for men was developed by perfumers Antoine Lie and Antoine Maisondieu. They created Quiksilver for Men in the hopes of targeting the younger male consumers. With the great value for money that they offer and the freshness and youth that define the cologne, they may be successful with this endeavor.
Quiksilver for Men is very interesting in the sense that they make use of salt and seawater as top notes. This unusual use of note is paralleled with a powerful and fresh blast of citrus flavors coming from grapefruit and bitter orange. Eucalyptus is added to the whole composition. After a few hours, the top notes are replaced with a base of multiple layers of woody details coming from the organic sandalwood grown from Australia and a combination of musk.
At the first one or two sprays of Quiksilver for Men, you will be reminded of a citrus, lemony smell that some people may not like but give it several more minutes and you will be reminded of the nostalgia feel of the sand and beach. The scent is good for all-day use but it may not work well in the winter season.
Although Quiksilver for Men does not last as long as a lot of higher end fragrances available in the market, this scent lasts at least five to six hours. It’s still worth it considering that the online market prices for it start at $15 (1 oz), $19 (1.7 oz), and $31 (3.3 oz).
The packaging is simple and classic Quiksilver trademark. The bottle’s design is simple but still cool. The somewhat curve, transparent bottle was created to look contemporary. The brand name and trademark symbol is embossed in the bottle as it is with the box. The distinctive design done on the black rubber cap makes it look unique and young.
Conclusion for Quiksilver for Men
Utilizing musk and sandalwood does not differentiate Quiksilver for Men from other available brands of fragrances. The use of seawater as top note, though, which is further magnified by salt and citrusy scents, makes it a great scent for the young males.
Overall, Quiksilver for Men is definitely worth the try. Compared to most brands of fragrances, Quiksilver is cheap and definitely worth the money. The scent created by this fragrance may have been done several times before but it’s still definitely a keeper and a great gift to a friend or to your boyfriend.
