    Default Which fragrance for beach feelings?

    Unfortunately, I cannot travel to San Diego and New Port this year, because I have lots of works ahead of me in this summer.

    It seems to be like I have to spend my whole days in my office in this summer.

    Which fragrance could you recommand, which evokes a great summer and beach feeling?

    Thanks.

    Dali's Laguna, Creed Erolfa, Givenchy Insense Ultramarine, Baldessarini Del Mar and the harder to find Nautilus Aqua and Rectoverso Man: Blue Atoll are the scents I have that I consider most beachy, followed to a lesser extent by Kenzo Homme and many of the the Nautica scents (some of which are a bit rough).

    Vanilia, from what I hear, is fantastic in summer (sadly, it's discontinued). Heeley's Sel Marin is nice, too.

    +1 on Heeley Sel Marin. Fantastic, wonderful stuff. I am enjoying it more and more each time I wear it. Far and away my favorite aquatic, and I don't think it should necessarily be limited to summer.

    +1 on Creed Virgin Island Water. VIW is just a fun summer scent that will get you noticed and you likely won't have to worry about smelling like anyone else.

    Sel Marin ~ salt water, sea air and sand
    Virgin Island Water ~ tropical drinks on the beach in the Caribbean
    Fire Island ~ suntan lotion and warm skin

    Also, if you can find it, try Comptoir Sud Pacifique's Motu. Not the newer, reformulated Acqua Motu. I'm talking about the original Motu in the glass bottle. It's the epitome of beach. An underrated gem.

    Sel Marin by Heeley

    Both breezy and aquatic, Sel Marin perfectly captures an early summer’s day spent at a quiet cove, a place absent of all fruity tropical oil smells and distractions when the only thing to concentrate on is the refreshing water, the soft sand and the salty sea air.


    At The Beach 1966
    by CB I Hate Perfume

    At The Beach is the exact recreation of a hot summer’s day spent lying in the sun and the scent of Coppertone, the sand and the surf filling your nose. For perfumer Christopher Brosius, this was a trip back to his summers on the North Atlantic (which we think must smell just like the Pacific.) An absolutely brilliant and faithful interpretation of classic Coppertone meets beach, there is no other perfume we’ve ever smelled that manages to capture a specific moment—long-ago summers on the beaches of America—as this one does.

    P.S.
    Rhubarb by CDG is hard to top as a summer fragrance. Not a marine scent but perfectly captures summer notes especially for those locked up in the office environment.

    Get all 3.

    A couple months back I decided to layer V&R Spicebomb and Nautica Voyage just for kicks... As strange as it sounds (both the combination and the result), the vibe I got from the mixture was reminiscent of a warm late-summer evening spent in the ambiance of an oceanside desert metropolis. I've noticed over time that I relate scents to places and settings. Weird, I guess.

    As for individual fragrances, I've gotten a similar "beachy" feeling from Creed's MI and VIW, as well as the entire CK One Summer line, and a variety of cleaner vetivers (mostly due to the watery, yet green, qualities of the root). While there are certainly a myriad of aquatic perfumes out there that aim to satisfy the beach and oceanic niche (Ferre's Bergamotto Marino, Bvlgari's Aqua line, Sel Marin, etc.), I tend to associate those with purely the ocean and not so much the adjoining coastlines, and instead find myself appreciating a combination of fruity/citrus notes with minerals and mossy or green cyphre notes.

    Being from Florida, though, I could simply smell the sickly-putrid odor of low tide in the coastal marshes and instantly reminisce on the pre-dawn departures from Vilano for a day of fishing on the Atlantic.
