I’m willing to bet that I’m not the only one who is dreaming of a holiday by the beach right now. I mean, who wouldn’t love to be basking in the sunshine with the sound of seagulls overhead and soft sand under their feet? So, to offset those cravings, I’ve been on the hunt for the best fresh, beachy perfumes that will conjure the soft sea breeze and the sexiness of hot, dewy skin. Here are my top five picks…

1. Jo Malone London Wood Sage and Sea Salt Cologne

Combining the natural earthiness of sage with sea salt and musky ambrette, this cologne boasts unique woody undertones and a playful heart that evokes sandy shores and crashing waves. It’s almost like breathing in the sea breeze!

2. Micheal Kors Turquoise for Women Eau de Parfum

This beachy perfume really captures the freshness of summer. Opening with a zesty lime and soft cucumber undertones, the scent develops with floral accents of wild orchid and jasmine, before settling on a base of musk, ambrox and cedarwood. Fresh, light and beachy, it embodies everything you could want out of a summer holiday.

3.Paco Rabanne Olympea Aqua Eau de Parfum

Designed to evoke the beauty of water nymphs (yes, those mermaid-like creatures in Greek mythology), the Olympea Aqua EDP blends top notes of cashmere with lemon blossom and vanilla, before revealing a base scent of jasmine and ambergris. This beachy perfume reminds me of summers in Tenerife. It smells just like the ocean, with the freshness of summer flowers and sweetness of fruit that make your mouth water on a hot day.

4. Molton Brown Coastal Cypress & Sea Fennel Eau de Toilette

Nothing will make you feel like you’re by the ocean quite like the Coastal Cypress & Sea Fennel EDT. One of the best beachy perfumes out there, it will flood your senses with marine notes and earthy woods, as well as tidal waves of salted cypress, cedarwood and musk. Perfect for a sunny day where you’re dreaming of being at the coast, it is beautifully fresh and clean!

5. NUXE Sun Fragrant Water

Though this EDT doesn’t have the same sea salt undertones as the other ones, it will still wrap your body in a summery scent. Think sweet orange, refreshing coconut and floral tiare flowers meets sensual vanilla and heady musk. With just one spritz, you’ll feel like you’re sunbathing somewhere beautiful.

And there you have it, 5 beachy perfumes that will remind you of hot summer days by the beach.
