    Default Sea water, beach, sun, holidays??

    Ok, lets imagine: It's a rainy morning in summer. You get up, you see the clouds....you need a fragrance that reminds you of a perfect day at the beach
    ....lying in the sun
    .....having fun
    .....talking to nice people
    .....enjoying the perfect weather.

    Which frag reminds you of a perfect holiday in the south?? You just need to spray this frag, then you have a good feeling....a perfect start into the day!!

    I ve often read that "Laguna homme" is such a frag, but its not possible to get it here in Germany.

    Ive aready tested these ones:

    Biotherm Aqua fitness: Not bad, very refreshing, but it has been discontinued
    CK One Summer : Its too female I think....
    Jil Sander Sun for men: Sometimes nice but not an everyday frag for me....I am missing the freshness...
    Marc Jacobs: It smells like sun lotion to me....
    Bulgari aqua: Yeah its okay, but nothing special

    Such fragrance that reminds me of a day at the beach, or moreso the actual sunset at the beach is JLo's Miami Glow, I don't wear it, just for the record, but I like the smell

    IMO a masculine frag that evokes sea, sea spray and salt is Kenzo PH

    Cool Water was my first self-bought fragrance. I loved it and am now on my second bottle, and almost done too . It reminds me of 80 degree heat and humidity, being sticky, hot, and smelling great through it all. It brings me back to when I was younger durring summer days at the pool for work and just to relaxe there. I love it and it is the unltimate fun summer fragrance to me.

    I was checking a link posted recently by Pigeon Murderer and I came across this frag. I haven't tested it, but it seems to fit your scenario:

    Plus, it looks like it's a good deal!

    What about Creed Millesime Imperial? I wore this one all the time when I was living out in California, and now every time I smell it I'm reminded of those sunny days.

    Definitely Kenzo - L'eau Par. I just got out of the water to drink my ice cold lemonade! (might not be warm enough for a rainy day though)

    What is Mare- Creative Universe? Never heard of it and can't find it on the directory.

    Eau des Merveilles is my "take-me-to-the-beach" scent. One whiff and I'm instantly transported to a sunny beach where I feel the salty sea air against my sun-baked skin. It's not so much about suntan lotion, no pineapple or coconut note in sight. I have a hard time wearing this to work though, I tend to daydream too much while wearing it. (and while it is from the girl's side of the shelf, I think it would be great on a man, too!)
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    [blue]Live Jazz,

    Creative Universe is the company; *Mare* is the fragrance.

    I'm surprised Laguna Homme wasn't mentioned.

    For me, though, it is Erolfa.

    Creative Universe is a company owned and operated by an individual perfumer out of New York. Her name is Beth Terry, she has other products too, Mare has received very positively and is found in some specialty shops in USA. I carry this in my store, and am about to receive another of her products which has turned out to be her next best seller, called VITA

    LiveJazz I am in the process of getting vials so I can decant and send them out as samples. If you are interested PM me. These samples will be free.

    I did read scentemental's review on this (link on scentemental's post) and he hit it right on the money.

    I second that. The first thing that came to me when I first tried it was the salty ocean. Real nice, though I know some on this board who aren't fond of it.

    And I'll go with Cool Water as well. I wore this the entire time when I was in the Caribbean and it is nostalgic. Every time I get a whiff of it I'm in the ocean on a bright (and hot) sunny day and having a blast. *sigh* :-/

    I lived in South Beach for a while and Kouros was a huge hit. It does extremely well in the heat -- and the thing is it lasts really well as many others fade in the heat.

    When I was in Florida for a few months, I wore that blue Aqua Velva aftershave. It was the best I could find at the Naval Exchange there, and it wasn't worth it to wear nice cologne in front of a few hundred dirty airmen. When I first got my bottle of GIT, the topnotes brought me right back to my cramped, sweaty dorm room in pensacola.
    From that time forward, any time I deploy to someplace warm ( ) I don't bring any scents- I just buy whatever they have at the local BX and usually get rid of the remainder when I leave. It saves on weight.

    Creed Erolfa is very appropriate, and to a lesser extent, Imperial. Erolfa is just WoW !

    For me, Nothing evokes what you described more purely than Montale Fougeres Marines. Damn fine Acquatic scent.

    Default Re: Sea water, beach, sun, holidays??

    I'll add Amouage Arcus. Very natural marine, salty air note, to my nose. As with most Amouage scents, it smells of very high quality, that is, has an "expensive" smell to it. It's also extremely wearable as a SOTD - not "weird" at all.

    Also, I'll second Montale Sandflowers. To me, it smells A LOT like the beaches in So. California where I used to live. It's got maybe the most natural smelling sea water / wet beach sand note I've smelled, as well as some very light floral notes that mimic very well the smell of the grasses and brush around the beaches I used to go to. If you want to smell like a beach (and not tanning lotion or the people on the beach), this might be the one!
