    Smile Sandy beach - need help

    I need help from both male and female for a fragrance that smells like Sandy beach, the one that makes you melancholic & euphoric so when you smell it it takes you right back to your summer vacation and make you think you are there right that moment.
    Please can anybody help???

    A few to start...

    CB I Hate Perfume's At The Beach 1966 captures the essence of sunscreen to me.
    Hermes Eau des Merveilles calls to mind suntanned skin, hot sand, and sunshine
    Creative Universe Mare smells salty - briny - like the ocean.

    None of these uses a detectable coconut note to me. I like coconut, but it seems like such a cop-out to use coconut to evoke beach memories. Of the three, I think the Hermes scent is most evocative of the "beach" (and not the beach "experience").

    Try these:

    Creed - Virgin Island Water (fantastic coconut and rum)
    CB I Hate Perfume - At the Beach 1966 (coppertone, vintage beach)
    Bond No. 9 - Coney Island (caramel, sweet.. makes me think summery)
    Bond No. 9 - Fire Island (copy of atb1966)
    Tommy Bahama - Set Sail St. Barts (tequila, coconut, beachy, yum)

    I second, all of the recommendation above.

    And add: Azuree Soleil Eau Fraiche by Estee Lauder. It's marketed for women, but can easily be worn by a man.

    tommy bahama original smells to me like that Seinfeld episode where jerry and kramer decide to market a cologne that smells like you were on the beach all day...this is the one...smells like sun quenched skin after you have been covered in lotion, for a dip in the ocean, and then a couple of hours sippin drinks while sitting in the sand...its a little harsh at first, but when it mellows its real nice...give it a shot...its actually my brother's favorite fragrance

    Maestrale by Profumie di Pantelleria is very aquatic--no suntan lotion, just the sea and sand....

    I think this is very underrated here, I personally like it a lot.
    There are precious woods, sandy beaches and a lot of sunshine.

    Definitely Hermès Eau des Merveilles do that magic to me!!! It's suntanned skin, it's salty seabreeze, it's the memories of holidays distilled in a bottle. Highly recommended!

    Montale - Sandflower

    Smells exactly like wet sand, seashells and seaweed. However, much like Fire Island, it's a bit too much and although the first 5 minutes have me going "Whoa" the rest of the time I'm wearing it makes my stomach a bit queasy. However, much like fire island, I can see some really enjoying this.

    My go-to frag for this is simpler with its suntan lotion and creamy sweetness:

    Salvador Dali Laguna

    It puts me right at the beach, even in the dead of winter.
