Perfume that Smells like The Beach: Found!

by on Friday, June 24th, 2011

The scent of summer is often the scent of the beach. And even in the dead of Winter, we often long for that smell of sand, surf, and implied warmth. Well, look no further because I have found a perfume that smells like the beach.

This perfume is of the beach during the mid 60′s – think of if like if Betty Draper went to the beach. Of course, I’m not a huge fan of Betty Draper…I digress. While people didn’t know too much about why sunscreen was so important back then, there was still some to use. And one of the brands was Coppertone. I’m sure you know the bottle – it’s iconic! A blonde girl with pigtails has a dog pulling on her bathing suit.

“The prime note in this scent is Coppertone 1967 blended with a new accord I created especially for this perfume – North Atlantic. The base of the scent contains a bit of Wet Sand, Seashell, Driftwood and just a hint of Boardwalk. The effect when you wear At The Beach 1966 is as if you’ve been swimming all day in the ocean.”

“Imagine it’s about 4 o’clock on a golden summer afternoon and you’ve been at the beach all day rubbing yourself with Coppertone suntan lotion – but Coppertone as it existed in the 60′s, not quite as it is now… You walk into the surf as the waves break on the shore and, bending down to touch the surf, you notice the smell of your warm skin and of the salt water that seems so cold by comparison. It has just the faintest hint of watermelon rind!”

I recall the Coppertone beach days as smelling like coconut a little…but maybe my nose is tricking me. I love how there’s an entire story behind this scent. It makes me almost believe in a sort of time travel. (Great, and now I want to go watch Doctor Who.)

    I really can not imagine the fragrance, I need to try sample, the idea of summer and beach is really attractive.

  3. John Says:

    For a perfume to have the smell of the beach, I am sure it would need an ocean fragrance of some sort. People need to be reminded of the sun, sand and sea. How they are going to create that smell, I really have no idea.
