    Default Best Beach Date-Vacation Fragrance?

    Hey guys, what is the best beach date-vacation fragrance? Day time cuz I already got the night time covered. Like walking in the beach, going to nearby village, eating, etc.

    I already have JV Artisan Pure, ADG Profumo(but more for night, right?), Boss Unlimited, and D&G Light Blue. Do you suggest one of those or maybe get a better one?

    I bought a 30ml of Nicolai Cap Neroli to take on vacation next month. Perfect size and a long-lasting citrus/neroli.

    You already have a fine selection and from this would likely go for and recommend especially ADG Profumo. Among other choices that are quite readily available and while inexpensive also great value for their price, also adding: Mugler Cologne, Azzaro PH l'Eau, Best of Chevignon.

    If you can find or afford niche and want to stand out from typical fragrance, Philosykos edp for a more woody sensual fig. Bit less pricey but still slightly above designer: Blue Mediterraneo line by Acqua di Parma (check your favourite. I find all pleasant/good but the best is for me Fico di Amalfi - yes i like fig, this one is fresher). And if none of those are your jam, D&G Ligh Blue is my preferred choice from those you listed, but the intense version! Tip, check out the version for Woman. Is is absolutely unisex do not worry.

    To me, CREED VIRGIN ISLAND WATER is the king of what you describe. I am always stunned by the longevity this has on me. Lime, coconut and white florals. But don't let the florals scare you. Works well on men in the situations you're describing.

    TOMMY BAHAMA'S ST BARTS is a nice summer cocktail alternative- and reasonably priced. This is a sneaky good summer scent, but it's longevity is a bit lacking.

    CREED MILLESIME IMPERIALE very nice melon/salty scent. Very standout. Near regal.

    CREED ORIGINAL VETIVER is a great, soapy, green scent. Doesn't really evoke the beach per se but perfect for hot summer days and nights.

    GUERLAIN HOMME has a nice mojito vibe (but think it's discontinued/hard to find.)

    BOND FIRE ISLAND is my new summer treat. Maybe a tad too feminine for some, but it has a dead on accurate high end tanning oil scent (not the coconut kind). Though smelling like Ban de Soleil when fully dressed may be TOO beachy and summery...but I like it.

    Don't rule out large decants of these. Some are pretty pricey. But given you likely won't wear this kind of scent a whole lot, a 10 or 15ml decant can serve your needs for summer. I've only got small bottles or decants of these.
    I don't get out much. But when I do, I smell real good.

    Big +1 for this - it's my favourite for the rare hot days we get (30 degrees tops!) over here in the UK - sunshine in a bottle...!

    Great suggestion here. All the line is good.... Fico di Amalfi is good for beach, but I might go for Arancia di Capri first....... as stated, check your favorite!!!

    The answer to your question is as others have said Creed Virgin Island Water if you like lime and coconut.

    If I had to chose from your list I'd probably go with Light Blue during the day and AdG Profumo at night

    Many good suggestions here, especially Guerlain Homme which can be found at discounters for a great price.

    On my last beach getaway I took 4 Creed frags:

    Virgin Island Water
    Millesime Imperial
    EROLFA
    Aventus


    While I haven't worn either at the beach I can imagine Costa Azzura EDP or Acqua along with Eau de Soleil Blanc both by Tom Ford would also be nice.

    Lots of good suggestions already.

    I always have Bulgari Aqua Amara on hand for any beach vacation.

    Thanks guys! Will check them online. Though I cannot really buy most niche cuz hard to find here, or if I order online, customs will tax me greatly for orders over $100. One time, I ordered whey protein online that cost me $120 for 2 . They wont release it until I will pay $180! NO WAY!

    But I will try to check in the local frag community.

    I found Guerlain Homme at Fragrance X for around $40. Worth it?

    Also, how different is D&G Light Blue Intense to Light Blue? Do they smell very similar just like The One EDT and EDP or is the Intense a big difference? Cuz I found someone selling a 100ml for $54. Cheaper than in Fragrance X.

    I can't imagine why anyone would want to wear perfume to the beach. A huge part of the experience is its own smell -- the salty water, the hot sand, the suntan lotion.

    Well, I dont mean just in the beach but we will be in the surrounding area as well. Restaurants, shops, hotel. Beach itself, will probably remove the fragrance once we go for a swim.

    Sounds like a fairly reasonable price. I'd grab it if you are interested.

    Wearing Louis Vuitton Cactus Garden for the first time today and it actually seems like it would be great for this purpose.
