    Default Fragrances that remind you of a beach or an ocean...

    Hello guys, please suggest me the fragrances that has the odour of beach like sand, breeze and salty water etc. Otherwise, I need a fragrance that makes you feel like you are walking on the shoreline of a beautiful beach. Since I live in warm climate country, I need to buy an aquatic cologne. Thank you

    Sel de Vetiver.

    Reminiscent of the beach without relying on calone. A wonderful scent and a class above most aquatics
    Currently wearing: L'Homme Idéal by Guerlain

    I have lived by the Ocean my entire life and I am yet to smell a true rendition of the ocean. Bulgari Aqua is close in as far as deep ocean.

    I would love to see someone someone truly capture the scent of the ocean.

    Depends on what you're willing to spend.

    Heeley - Sel de Marin
    The Different Company - Sel de Vetiver
    Creed - Erolfa

    ..are going to set you back quite a few bucks. While something like

    Bulgari Aqua, Aqua Marine cost next to nothing. Kenzo Pour Homme is another Calone bomb that can be had quite cheaply.

    Thank for your suggestions. I really appreciate them But I wanna ask another question. How about Kenzo Pour Homme. I see many optimistic reviews on that. And many people say it is ocean-like scent .

    Kenzo Pour Homme. Vintage two-leaves relief bottle, preferably.

    Kenzo ph is very salty and oceanic but to my nose also very plastic and synthetic. But it does last a long time and projects.

    It's dry and green aquatic I really enjoy wearing. The vintage version even has foresty feel with very natural mossy base. I perceive it as less synthetic than most aquatics.
