    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 and oft over looked and under appreciated Andy Warhol, Montauk.

    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.

    Virgin Island Water. When I first smelt it, the first thought I had was 'holiday/vacation'.

    It's a Piña Colada on a beach.

    Almost anything by ADP- especially the Blu Mediterraneo range
    Laura Biagiotti Acqua di Roma- in spite of the name, reminding not necessarily just of Rome, but of any Mediterranean setting
    Carlo Colucci Uomo Mare
    Boss Elements Aqua

    Yep. These two.

    Seriously, though: ditch work for a few days, and get to a real beach.
