25 Affordable Perfumes That Smell Like The Beach

If, like me, you are longing to travel and you feel that your soul really belongs at the beach or near to the ocean, then I suggest closing your eyes and inhaling an evocative scent of a perfume that smells like the beach.

Just breathing in a fabulous fragrance that reminds you of that wonderful beachy and salty smell of your summer holidays can be both comforting and compelling.

It can evoke your precious memories of long summer days, hot sunshine, warm sand, sunscreen, saltwater, tropical flowers, coconuts and exotic fruits, and provide you with a much needed sensory beach escape until you are able to have a real one.

How To Find Your Perfect Beach Perfume

Which one of these 25 best perfumes that smell like the beach will take you back to those lazy hazy beach days in the heat of the sun and to your favourite tropical islands, where you lay in the hot summer shade on your lounger with a cocktail in one hand and a summer beach read in the other?

His? Her’s? Unisex? It doesn’t really matter!

As 33 percent of women wear fragrances marketed to men, don’t be afraid to ignore the rules, push your boundaries and trust your nose in detecting the right scent for you despite the marketing.

After all, the perfume you wear says so much about you and your personality.

Choosing a fragrance might seem like a complex issue but knowing what key ingredients you personally enjoy and then detecting them in the right ‘notes’ will help you achieve your sensory beach experience.

It’s just down to choosing your fusion of floral, fresh, oriental, or woody.

A blend of those essential elements will reflect your very own essence and capture your signature beach scent and help you determine the best perfume for a beach vacation.

The scent of the sea: the key character for this fragrance is called ‘calone’ also known as ‘watermelon ketone’. It’s a light and airy and fresh popular ingredient used to achieve a ‘marine’ or ‘ocean breeze concept’ in a perfume.

Sunscreen: Coppertone? Hawaiian Tropic? Piz Buin? Perfumers have worked hard to blend the oils of Green Herbs, Jasmine Infusions, French Lavender, Rose and Lilac to replicate the sensory experience of wearing tropical fruits and floral fragrances in your suntan lotion inspired scent.

Summer Cocktails: pairing your favourite summer drink with your perfume makes for a heady and sensual experienced evoking earthy wood tones and musky blends of bergamot with coconut wood and tonka bean to create a delightfully creamy, nutty vibe. A delicious and extravagant infusion!
