Nautica Blue Sail Cologne Review

When it come to colognes from Nautica For Men, you know what you are getting. They produce consistent, affordable fresh aquatic fragrances.

Blue Sail EdT was released in 2017, and it is one of the more recent offerings from Nautica. It follows in the footsteps or some similar colognes like Nautica Voyage and Nautica Blue.

Like most colognes from Nautica, this leans heavily towards a masculine scent.

What Does Blue Sail Cologne Smell Like?

When you spray Blue Sail, it opens with notes of fresh greens and apples. It has a fresh and fruity blast initially, and it also smell aquatic. It has a watery accord to it, but not salty like some other aquatic fragrances.

It dries down into a juicy musk. Overall, it smells nice due to its freshness with fruit notes. It is very clean and watery. This is a great scent for warm weather. It smells good, but not quite as good as Nautica Voyage.


Top Notes: Apple, Green Leaves

Middle Notes: Water Notes

Base Notes: Musk, Amber, Moss


The longevity is around 4-6 hours which seems on par with most Nautica colognes. With a low cost cologne like this, you will generally not get something that lasts a long time on your skin. You can spray it on your clothes, and it may stick more there. This may help it last a bit longer.


Projection is weak to moderate depending on how it sits on your skin, climate etc. I can get around 90 minutes of projection that is around a few feet from me. After a couple of hours it becomes a skin scent, and it does not project far.

This is fairly standard for Nautica fragrances.


Nautica Blue Sail Eau de Toilette

Nautica Blue Sail comes in the same bottle as Nautica Blue and Classic. The only difference is the color of the fragrance. Blue Sail has a light blue to almost purple color.

The bottle is shaped like a sail from a sailboat with a silver cap. This falls in line with the whole nautical theme of the brand.

The box is also representative of the brand using light and dark blues with a sail boat.

It comes in 3.4 fl oz / 100 ml as a spray. It also comes in 1.7 fl oz. / 50 ml.

When To Wear It

Nautica Blue Sail Eau de Toilette is a crisp, clean, and casual fragrance. You can wear this for most occasions. This would be perfect for a nice summer day, a date, or you could wear it to the office for work.

It is mass-appealing, so most people that smell it on you will think it is nice smelling. This makes it an easy wear when you don’t want to think about a choice.

Due to its cost, you can keep it in places like the center console of your dash or in your gym bag. You can overspray it all over your body or even use it as a car air freshener.

This is a perfect beginner fragrance, as most Nautica colognes are.

What We Like

  • Great beginner fragrance if you want a clean and fresh scent
  • Low cost

What We Don’t Like

  • Nautica Blue Sail could be a little stronger
  • It smells a little generic and cheap


You should be able to purchase Blue Sail cologne for under $20. You can find it online as well as discount rack stores. It can be hit or miss in these stores though. I have also seen it at stores like WalGreens and WalMart.

You can check the current price at Amazon for Nautica Blue Sail cologne.

Typically, FragranceX has a lower cost for Blue Sail. You can find it here.

You may be able to find a Blue Sail Collection with the EdT and body spray in it. A lot of discount stores sell this.

ReviewNautica Blue Sail Eau de Toilette
SummaryNautica Blue Sail is a decent cologne if you want a low cost aquatic cologne.

Rating3.5 (out of 5)

This is a good budget cologne that can be worn in casual settings. It is similar to other offerings by Nautica. One comparison is Nautica Blue vs. Nautica Blue Sail. These two fragrances are similar, but they have different notes, except for the musk.

I would recommend this is you are looking for a fruity fresh cologne that is low cost.

You can also purchase Blue Sail deodorant and body spray. You may be able to get them in a gift set as well.
