    I think Aqua Motu is excellent as salty, marine fragrance, or:

    REM which is very similar to Aqua Motu but a tad sweeter

    Fougere marine by Montale

    Embrouins d'Essaouira by Montale

    Mare by Creative Universe

    Vetiver by Annick Goutal

    Michel Comte Shared Water pour Femme - Swiss fragrance designer. Excellent salty water with narcissus. Wonderful composition but hard to find - try Google. I saw it once on Ebay.

    To me Eau des Merveilles by Hermès has a very sea-salty quality to it...

    Thank you castorpollux

    I was wondering however, if Christian Dior Dune would sort of fulfill the requirements too? I do detect that sea-salty-breeziness in it... but is it aquatic too? For me it's not but not sure how others would perceive it?

    Just a thought...

    Ava Luxe's The Beach is amazing. It actually stunned me, because I closed my eyes and sniffed and it truly smelled like ocean air. I'm hoping a full bottle is among my future purchases.

    I liked Aqua Motu too.

    One that's kind of like it and less expensive is Demeter's Salt Air. If that one is hard to find, another Demeter that is so similar to it is Hawaiian Surf from their Kahala Collection. (Some reviews have said that Hawaiian Surf is just Salt Air re-packaged.)

    I would suggest Creed Millesime Imperial.
    A less expensive, quite unique, but not as satisfying alternative is
    Laguna Homme by Salvador Dali. The women's Laguna is probably
    similar, but I haven't tried it.

    Carlita: Second that but (yes, I know it's weird) only when you're actually by the seashore; wherever there's a sea breeze blowing. At that point NOTHING beats Erolfa. Otherwise, I find it alternatively dull or harsh in urban conditions, esp in hot weather. BTW, beware of Creative Universe Mare, one of the few frags that makes me ill, the iodine smell is more suited to a band-aid.

    Mare by Creative Universe...regardless of the brackish sea salt note that made a previous poster ill. I've never become genuinely ill from smelling a fragrance but apparently there are those who do. Mare is a fragrance to be embraced rather than merely sniffed. It is (as Scentemental wonderfully described sea salt) strange and otherworldy. See reviews of Mare by Scentemental and Calchic for more accurate descriptions of this magnificent fragrance.

    I too needed a little time to fully understand it, but once I had, it reigned supreme over my Millesime Imperial, Erolfa, Eau des Merveilles and others (all superb fragrances in and of themselves).

    Agree too, and it´s a wonderful one! I also experienced that overapplying it can be very much like inhaling salty seawater up through the nose, the following headache included Go easy on it, it´s not as shy as it appears at first.

    BEWARE. MARE SMELLS LIKE BAND-AID! How sophomoric and ridiculously inaccurate.

    I live fifty yards from an amazing beach and all of its intense and wonderful smells. I've worn Erolfa for years. I love the way it smells. But for me, Mare is infinitely more satisfying. It has far superior presence and tenacity. It is one that needs time to understand. It's also one that needs to be fully embraced rather than merely sniffed. I must add that I've never become genuinely ill from smelling a fragrance.
