Iím not usually a fan of ozonics and Iíve never been to Hawaii, but I enjoy this scent. It is ozonic, and itís fresh and clean and all those good things. Skulking under the ozonic accord thereís a soft suntan lotion note and a soft floral that I canít identify. I think I can smell some sand or mineral in there too Ė whatever, itís pleasant and enjoyable. There is a synthetic tinge to Kahala Hawaiian Surf, but I usually get that in ozonic fragrances, so itís no big deal. Sillage is OK and longevity is typical Demeter Ė short. If ozonics were my thing I think Iíd get this because it is so nicely put together.
