    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...
    Summer Rotation:

    Versace Pour Homme by Versace
    Cool Water Game by Davidoff
    Tom Ford Grey Vetiver
    H.M. by Hanae Mori
    Vettiveru by Commes Des Garšons
    Riverside Drive by Bond No. 9
    Soon to include "Ab Spirit Silver"

    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.
