Nautica Classic by Nautica Cologne. Nautica Classic, a musky and masculine scent from Nautica, is for men who value tradition. This versatile men's fragrance, released in 1992, evokes an aura of ruggedness and confidence, making it a great choice for everyday wear to work or out on the golf course. Its woodsy, rustic quality is derived from a combination of natural musk and rich, warming sandalwood. Hints of lemon and sage freshen the formula and give it a clean, crisp finish.
