By the sea: aquatic perfumes

Published August 12, 2020

You dip your toes into a warm gentle ocean. The breeze whispers in your ear, offering a kind of peace you haven’t felt in a long time. You can still taste the salt on your lips from your morning swim.

Aquatic scents began to rule the perfume world in the 90’s, entering the new era of synthetic scents. The light compositions that were suddenly taking over the market were like a breath of fresh air after all the lush heaviness dominating the perfume stage in the 70’s and 80’s. Even if you might not be anywhere close to a warm beach we can guarantee that these perfumes will transport your mind to a beautiful aquatic paradise.

Perfume Sucks – Blue

Blue by Perfume Sucks is an ultra-modern hommage to aquatic hits of the ’90s. Calone carries the ocean breeze, while sandalwood, cassis and cardamom add depth, warmth and sweetness. Plus, of course, there’s a tidy layer of hotel soap and sunscreen. An ultimate vacation experience, perfectly unisex.

Pierre Guillaume Paris – Aqaysos

French Nose Pierre Guillaume suggests a refreshing (pun intended) take on aquatic scents: dewy marine notes he combines with warm woods and fruits. No tropical cocktails in fancy glasses – rather an abounded but beautiful island that teases you with a big adventure. Try it to please your inner Indiana Jones or even Jack Sparrow.

Heeley Parfumes – Sel Marin

Speaking of pirates: Sel Marin could be a perfect scent for them. At least, in some romantic movie: we are pretty much sure that real pirates didn’t smell that clean. Sel Marine is all about the marine salt and algae on a beautiful and slightly brutal leather base. So realistic that you want to lick your skin. Just to check whether it’s salty or not.

Berdoues – Azur Riviera

If you are searching for a relaxed and glamorous aquatic perfume, look no further than Azur Riviera! Inspired by the luxurious vacation at Côte d’Azur, this scent is like a dreamy, salty sprays of summer. Light floral aspects of orange blossom and jasmine are carried on the balmy breeze from the coast. Beautiful life in a bottle.

Art de Parfum – Sea Foam

From the warm waters to slightly colder but dually beautiful. Inspired by long sea trips to the Swedish island of Gotland, Sea Foam combines notes of seaweed and salt to give you a purifying seascape. Drift away on a wave of lactonic sandalwood, fig leaf and weathered woods. Calm Nordic summer by the sea that is always with you.
