    make sure to check out Burberry Summer. Massive compliment-getter and a great scent in my opinion.

    I was a little hesitant to mention this one, but I own both the fragrance and the body oil. If you remember what the Coppertone tanning oils smelled like in the 80's, then this one will take you right back to that time in a heart beat. Totally agree that it can be worn very easily by a man.

    Really, anything fresh will do for the beach. It's also a good place to use up those scents that you think are okay, but aren't overly wrapped with. I remember using up a whole bottle of Benetton Sport down the beach, thinking it was just okay - but wound up getting quite a few positive comments.

    Lol Renato! I agree with the lack of a 'beach environment' in the UK, hence why I'm heading somewhere tropical! You should have been here during our glorious summer of 2012! Wettest Summer for 100 years, need I say more?

    On the whole 'beach frag' thing, maybe I should have been more specific. I was looking for a frag to wear during a beach holiday in general. I.e for evenings out on a beach resort, as well as for the morning, before heading into the sun.

    Thanks for all the suggestions guys, much appreciated.

    I've decided against buying yet another frag (this holiday is already costing me a fortune!) - going with Mugler Cologne & Bleu de Chanel for day and Mont Blanc Individuel for night.

    You sound like my cooked lobster wife, who is also of British extraction.

    Yes, well so much for the Met Office predictions from a decade ago of a hotter future.

    On reflection, it occurs to me that if one doesn't stick one's head in the water much or at all (it messes up my hair), the beach is also a good place to make use of those strong aftershave splashes and balms that one gets in gift sets - since the won't wash off. I must try this next summer.

    At the actual beach I wouldn't bother because because I'd be applying sunscreen and swimming, so it seems a bit pointless. I'd rather enjoy the smell of the sea.

    Then again there are plenty of places I wouldn't wear scent.

    At a beach resort I think Bleu and infusion could work well. I also like the idea of AdG. It really depends on the vibe of the place. I'm imagining white sand and cool, clean linen shirts and shorts.

    +1 Tommy Bahama Set Sail St. Barts. Also, Lill Bermuda South Water, though the longevity isn't good, but the smell is.

    Which one is is it? Bronze Goddess I assume you are saying a man can pull off. Didn't you used to be a big fan of Fire Island?
