eau des merveilles - i think i've even READ in the description that it is supposed to evoke this smell salty driftwood smell. it is salty, mineral, spicy, warm, not one single hint of ozone - just. mmm.
Seeking: woods patchouli fresh tuberose
This is pretty dumb, but I have a bottle of fake ambergris from the local head shop, and it smells exactly like salt water and ocean breeze. Cheap, too. It's not a complete perfume, though, only a note of ocean water.
A complete Oceanic fragrance is Montale Sandflowers, a nice marine note with juniper berries and oakmoss. Sort of dry and woody, but salty to the end.
Carlita, here are two more on driftwood...

2nd Eau des Merveilles ... I just replaced a bottle. I am wearing it today.
I find this to be unique ... it definitely has a salt and beachy quality. Subtle but good longevity. Gets a lot of compliments.
Beauty is an ecstasy; it is as simple as hunger.
There is really nothing to be said about it.
It is like the perfume of a rose: you can smell it and that is all.

Creative Universe "Mare" and Creed Erolfa are both very good sea, salt, and brine fragrances.

Well, it's nothing new or exciting, but I'm wearing Dior Dune today. It has a very scrubby, salty, dune quality to it. I don't know if you would call it "driftwood" per se, but it's rather woody. And the amber sweeetens it. I'm enjoying it today. :-)
The Different Company-Sel de vetiver is very salt-y and beach-y IMHO
I was just about to recommend Sel de Vetiver too. It's got a wonderful sea-salty note, and the vetiver in it is nicely woody, and feels very driftwoody to me.
Another rec for Eau des Merveilles - my colleague told me that I smelled of sunlotion and salt water. Gorgeous stuff.
I saw this on Beautyhabit .com: Calypso's MARINE EDT some notes include... "salty marine accord, dry notes of driftwood, sandalwood & musk"
For the fourth time: Eau des Merveilles (salty sea smell, and strong!) or Elixir des Merveilles (sweet and chocolaty THEN salty sea smell)
You might want to sample Profvmvm Acqua di Sale for an algae-encrusted driftwood note.
I'll stop wearing black when they make something darker
A new one that has just been launched would be Matthew Williamsons collection of 4 perfumes - incence, jasmine sambac, lotus and warm sands - the latter Warm Sands certainly brought back memories of a beach holiday I had in Thailand.. a salty earthiness that was warm and reassuring on my skin... lovely
