Replica Beach Walk fragrance notes

Reviews of Replica Beach Walk

First review and still new, so I’m choosing a recently-sampled fragrance and house I don’t really know much about... :)

Beach Walk opens a bit loud with coconut, suntan lotion, and a cool breeze of citrus that fades quickly, but reappears now and again. After the first few minutes I begin to detect the pink pepper; it persists (but does fade) throughout the day, creating an ever-present warmth on my skin that is reminiscent of summer days when it is perfectly sun-kissed. This is when the florals begin to appear, and on me the combination of ylang-ylang and heliotrope against a coconut background becomes a somewhat generic sweet-jasmine-vanilla.

After 1-2 hours, the scent has settled comfortably into that coconuty-musky lotioned-skin scent we all know so well, layered over a now very generic floral-gourmand, with the occasional appearance of citrus (mostly bergamot). This continues, but fades, over hours 3-5.

6-7 hours in, the floral and citrus notes have all but vanished, yet I am still getting soft whiffs of warm, sweet coconut suntan lotion — the smell that lingers in your hair and skin as you peel off your salty swimsuit at the end of the day and begin to find sand in places you’d rather not mention...

8-9 hours after initial application, I’m able to detect a trace of sweet coconut very close to my skin. After that, its undetectable.

Colors:
sky blue, shimmery golden-sand-beige, white, pink

Who should try/wear:
If you’re someone who LOVES the beach, summertime, sunbathing, and all things related, you will likely love wearing this fragrance, or at least appreciate it (fortunately, I DO fall into this category!) Otherwise, it may not appeal to you at all.

When to wear:
Daytime during spring and summer when it’s warm and sun-shiney.
Or just anytime you need a reminder that summertime will come again.

Beach Walk in a (coco)nutshell:
summery, fun, sweet, youthful, warm, nostalgic, feminine, beachy, coconut-y, lotion-y

Nice coconut-suntan lotion opening with heavy musky florals. Sadly the lotion scent lasted maybe 1 hour and it finally died down at the 2 hour mark altogether.

Surprisingly a very nice perfume but longevity was so poor I'm going to place it with the Jo Malone scents - pleasant and agreeable, but bad longevity.

Living in South Florida (Miami) for many years and being VERY familiar with the beach, Beach Walk reminds me of Copertone suntan oil of the 70's. I do smell the coconut mixed with the ylang-ylang and heliotrope. It is sweet and creamy. To me this fragrance IS the beach.

This reminds me of suntan lotion. It has a very brief opening of bergamot and pink pepper. This perfume is dominated by ylang ylang and coconut. Skin scent base of musk and cedar.

I particularly enjoy the ylang ylang in this, as I have been in search of this note to feature prominently in a fragrance, in something other than a soliflore.

Overall not a swooner but, it has its place in the wearable, everyday fragrance category.

I smelled this fragrance blind without knowing the notes and it smelled exclusively of white flowers to me like jasmine and lily of the valley. I was surprised to see ylang-ylang and coconut listed as the main notes in this. In fact, on my skin I thought a more suitable name for this would be 'white flower bouquet' rather than beach walk. It is very pleasant smelling no doubt and has quite a bit of lasting power (while the sillage is of the light and airy kind), but it leans feminine due to the white floral notes I detect on my skin and doesn't remind me of the beach or ocean at all, like whatsoever. Great composition though if one was searching for a white flower perfume with good lasting power, as I really enjoy the scent.

4/5

Have you ever gone to a party or a club and it was an off night and there was barely anyone there, but you and your friends already paid, so you soldier on, desperately trying to act like you're having fun when you're clearly not? Beach Walk is that feeling expressed as a perfume.

This wants soooo badly to be a beach party in a bottle, but it's doing it quite poorly. Ostensibly, this is one of those suntan lotion bodies-on-a-beach perfumes, but it's awkwardly off kilter. There's that mix of tuberose and orange blossom that implies old-school tanning lotion, and tons of salty calone to imply both beach air and salty bodies, and some coconut to make everything "tropical". There's soapy neroli, and for some reason a large amount of hairspray aldehydes making evrything smell like it's coated in molten plastic, and some kind of musk that makes it all smell like it's a complicated scented shampoo. I really don't think it works. The elements clash and the salty plastic and shampoo drenching everything is just a mess. For my money, Bond's Fire Island remains the best of this style, still miles ahead of the many to come since, and this is at the bottom of that pack.
