Perfumes to Smell Like You Just Left The Beach
Nothing screams summer more than the smell of the beach. You know the smell- and no, I’m not talking about that fishy water smell of washed up kelp. How does one capture the perfectly bright combination of salt, fresh air, sunscreen, and warm weather? How does sunshine even have a smell? Somehow, a day at the beach gives it one.
Lucky for us, some perfumes have found a way to put that smell in a bottle. Even on the summer days that we aren’t able to be at the beach, we can have it with us. They say that life’s a beach, so why not smell like one?

It’s deep, the way that the sand beneath your feet is. It thrives on the familiar, yet somehow does it even better. Key notes of this game changer include bergamot, coconut milk, pink pepper, and ylang ylang.
The Clean Waters Perfume: Giorgio Armani’s Acqua di Gioia

But that is exactly what this perfume smells like- the most joyful, beautiful water you have ever smelled. A careful combination of mint, lemon, cedarwood, jasmine and more create a sea breeze that will make you want to dive in forever.
The Tropical Beach Getaway Perfume: Michael Kors’ Wonderlust
