I've lived in seaside towns since the age of eight. Trust me. You don't want to smell like anything that suggests the tide.
This ad is from 1966.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference What landlubber decided to name a men's cologne after the tide?:
My hubby loves the smell of pluff mud. Which smells absolutely disgusting! He insists it would make a wonderful cologne. Maybe Rip Tide would be close enough for him.

Well, since I found a scented candle the other day (the scent was given as "Hemingway") that actually smelled like a failure to discover deodorant, I can just about imagine a men's cologne designed to smell like low tide on a hot afternoon.

Not to mention "rip," not a word traditionally associated with nice smells.
