Nautica Voyage Heritage Review

One of the many flankers for Voyage, Heritage is an underrated scent. There are not many reviews of it. The note break down is a little different than the original. This is more of a herbaceous and sweet cologne.

While being more of the sweet side, Nautica Voyage Heritage is still a fresh aquatic with that clean shower gel type scent. This is one of the newer releases, but you can still find it at a lot of rack and discount stores.

Some guys will compare this to Voyage Sport because of the clean, simple scent profile. To me, Heritage is more of an herbal fresh smelling cologne instead of a citrus dominant scent like Sport.

Nautica Voyage Heritage Scent

Voyage Heritage smells like a sweet and warm version of the original. It also has a fresh and soapy smell. Overall, a sweet and clean shower gel smelling cologne.

It opens up fresh and aquatic. This inlcudes a bit of sweet mint along with rosemary. Sometimes I can detect a bit of spice from the Ginger and Lavender.

The dry down is woody notes mixed with lavender. What is missing in the note of musk that is almost all of the other Voyage flankers.


Top Notes: Mint, Rosemary

Middle Notes: Lavender, Ginger

Base Notes: Sandalwood, Guaiac Wood


Nautica Voyage Heritage cologne

Voyage Heritage comes in the same bottle as the other Voyage colognes. The only difference is the 2 yellow stripes on the bottle. Overall, the bottle design is nice and easily fits in the palm of your hand.

It also comes with a silver top that is made out of plastic. There is a yellow stripe on it as well.

The atomizer is decent for what you are paying for.


Nautica Voyage Heritage does not last long. It is not a strong powerhouse cologne by any means. Similar to the other flankers, you will be able to get around 3 hours in normal conditions. This is for the average user. Max longevity is around 4 to 5 hours. I understand that some guys will get longer, but most reviews do not show that. For me, I get the short longevity.

Sillage (Projection)

The projection for Voyage Heritage is weak. You will get about 30 minutes of decent sillage. Sometime you can get 45 minutes in the right conditions. Overall, this is going to be skin scent. The only other people who will be able to smell this on you will have to be hugging you.

When To Wear

Being a fresh aquatic, this EdT works best in the summer months. It is more of a daytime fragrance as well. It’s scent is casual and versatile. If you are looking for something that is inexpensive to spray on before you go to a BBQ or an oiutdoor event, then this is a good choice.

Maybe you want a cologne for the gym. This is something you want for when you just want to smell clean and nice, but you do not want to waste an expensive fragrance.

It does have a cheap synthetic smell to it, but it does smell nice for what it costs. I certainly would not wear this to impress a girl on a date to a nice restaurant.


Nautica Heritage costs around $20 give or take at most online stores. You can also go search rack stores like Burlington, and you may be able to find it there for a lower cost.

You can sometimes find a gift set that includes a 1.7 EdT and body spray for a good cost.

You can check the current cost at Amazon for Heritage Eau de Toilette.

Overall Impression

Overall, it is a nice budget fragrance. It does smell a little synthetic, but it still smells good. You know what you are getting with this cologne. If you need a fragrance like this in your collection, it is worth a blind buy.

Here is who I recommend this cologne to:

  • Any super fan who loves Nautica fragrances
  • Any guy looking for a budget shower gel scent
  • Any teenager looking for a clean and fresh scent
  • Someone starting their cologne collection
  • Anyone looking for a nostalgic fragrance from the 1990’s

Nautica Voyage Heritage Vs Voyage

If you compare Voyage Heritage to Voyage, they are different. Voyage Heritage is more sweet and herbal. Nautica Voyage is more fruity and fresh.

Both of these fragrances have a fresh aquatic scent, they just get there different ways.

Heritage uses lavender which provides somewhat of a clean, soapy, barbershop scent. It still comes off as a fresh smelling cologne.

Nautica Voyage uses green notes and apple to provide scents of fruits.

They both are similar because they are fresh shower gel fragrances.
