    Default ? a fragrance combining ocean and pine trees (Maine coast)

    I'm posting here rather than the gals' thread because I think I'll have more luck, I like to wear men's fragrances, and "beachy/suntan lotion" fragrances eg Jennifer Anniston, Bobbi Brown are not what I'm thinking of.

    I've tried the following, but they're not "it":

    Heeley Sel Marin
    Ayala Moriel Orcas
    Tokyomilk Marine Sel

    The closest so far has been DSH Blue-Green: Arnica, but only in a very abstract way. I'm craving fir tree + ocean, as in Quoddy Head beach in Lubec, Maine. Would also welcome suggestions on fragrances to layer to get this combination.

    Thanks for your help! Lisa

    Kenzo Pour Homme. I'm thinking this is all you need...
    Fall/Winter Rotation:

    Lancme Hypnse
    Lanvin Avant Garde
    Zegna Intenso
    Dior Homme Intense
    Thierry Mugler Taste of Fragrance
    Prada Amber Intense Pour Homme

    If smelling good was a crime, I'd be serving a lifetime sentence....

    I know the name is supposedly representing the west coast, but New West for Men, (Aramis) is exactly the mixture you are looking for and done very well. At least please give it a try !!

    Granville is terrific.

    You might even want to check out Fou d'Absinthe (L'Artisan Parfumeur) and Filles en Aiguilles (Serge Lutens) while you're in a pine state of mind.
