When to wear beachy perfumes in 2023?

Beachy perfumes are one of the most worn scents during summer. They are very popular amongst those who wish to smell like they just came back from a tropical vacation.

As they are fresh and airy, I prefer beachy perfumes during the daytime. Honestly, aquatic and marine accords are often my top picks when going out for a casual hang-out or a formal meeting during the day.

However, I won’t prefer beachy and aquatic perfumes to women on very formal occasions like weddings.

List of Best Beachy Perfumes in 2023

1) Tom Ford Eau De Soleil Blanc- Best Overall Beachy Perfume

Eau De Soleil Blanc by Tom Ford has hundreds of fans all across the globe. So, I am not the only one who thinks this fragrance deserves a spot in everyone’s vanity.

After smelling a few spritzes, I could detect an overall sultry and addictive scent. Many beautiful floral notes intermingle with solar radiance; voila, you get the best beachy scent of all time!

But who should wear it and when? Eau De Soleil Blanc is a unisex fragrance. Therefore, it is excellent for both adult men and women. It should ideally be worn on bright summer mornings to cast a refreshing effect. As it’s light and airy, so it will keep you sane on any sunny day. However, I suggest you opt for some other scent at night.

It is the best beachy fragrance in the entire list.

What do I like about Tom Ford’s Eau De Soleil Blanc?

This perfume has not been regarded as the best for absolutely no reason. It is a well-rounded fragrance that serves well for layering with other perfumes.

Another thing which I like about it is its longevity. Soleil Blanc is light, airy, and crisp- perfect for a refreshing day.

What I don’t like about it?

Despite the many pros, some people may prefer something other than Eau De Soleil Blanc due to personal preferences. Considering the high price, it could have better longevity and silage.

Invitation to this people preferring strong fragrances find a find it to be very light. However, almost every beachy perfume is generally weak.

Key Notes: citrus, white floral, coconut, vanilla, tuberose, amber.

Price at time of publishing: $155 for 50 ml

2) Virgin Island Water by Creed-Best Luxury Beachy Perfume

Virgin Island by Creed, in simpler words, is the Caribbean and Jamaican beachy vibe trapped inside a bottle. When I spray a few strokes of this beachy scent on my palms, I can manifest myself on a sailing adventure with uplifting winds striking my frame. Isn’t that AMAZING?

The perfume opens with dominant notes of lime, coconut, bergamot, and mandarin and then dries down to sugarcane, white rum, and musk. Just thinking of this fantastic combination refreshes one completely.

OK, so I have to be honest about the scent’s longevity. Considering its price, Creed Virgin Island should have much better projection and longevity. I understand that most unisex beachy perfumes are light and weak in these two domains.

However, your heart aches if you don’t get it even after paying hundreds of dollars. Mostly, on a good day, Creed Virgin Island will last on your skin for 5 hours max. After that, there is no scene. :/

Despite this one flaw of the perfume, its unique scent blend and signature Creed DNA make it the best luxury scent for beaches. Both men and women can wear it. It will especially suit you on hot sunny days as well. All thanks to its light and airy feel.

If you intend to try some of the best creed fragrances for women then read this article.

What do I like about Creed Virgin Island?

One of the best things about Virgin Island is the happy and dreamy picture it creates. Secondly, the perfume is relatively light, so you would love it if you don’t like strong scents.

Additionally, it’s hard to ignore the Creed signature DNA. Therefore, add it to your perfume collection right away.

What I don’t like about it?

It has a high price, but longevity and projection are only satisfactory.

Key Notes: Coconut, White Bergamot, Lime, Sicilian Mandarin, and Jasmine.

Price at time of publishing for 50ml: $345

3) Malibu Party in the Bay EDP- Best Beachy Perfume for Office (Men)

Malibu-Party in the Bay EDP intense is another perfume that makes its way to my list of best beachy scents in 2023. Upon smelling it, I could detect green and citrusy top notes. However, the perfume’s heart contains sugar and coconut, where the beachy vibe comes into play!

Overall, this scent is playful yet refined. That’s what I believe,

Plus, let me tell you, that’s not even the best part! This perfume competes directly with expensive beachy scents like Virgin Island. Therefore, if you don’t have the budget for a luxury scent, Malibu Party in the Bay will be the best replacement for Virgin Island. 

Also, guess what’s the cherry on the top! Malibu Party in the Bay also has good longevity and projection. It typically lasts for 7-9 hours on my skin.

Lastly, I suggest who should wear it and when. As Party in the Bay is a unisex scent, adult men and women can wear it. I recommend it for official lunches and more outdoor settings.

We have listed some best fragrances for men to wear during summer. Do check this.

What do I like about Malibu Party in the Bay Intense?

The scent has a harmonious balance between different notes. Secondly, it has a decent projection and longevity. However, the best part is that it imitates the Virgin Islands at a cheaper cost. 

What I don’t like about Malibu Party in the Bay EDP?

I prefer something other than Malibu Party in the Bay for indoor settings. However, it is just a personal take. You may have a different opinion.

Key Notes: Lime, green, sugar, coconut, musk

Price of 50 ml at the time of publishing: $250

4) SKYLAR Salt Air Eau De Parfum- Best Budget in Beachy Perfumes

On a tight budget but still, wish to purchase a beachy perfume? No worries because SKYLAR Salt Air EDP is there to meet your perfuming needs.

Salt Air EDP is a super refreshing scent. It opens with a punch of green marine notes, sea salt, and coconut. The heart of this fragrance is also breathtaking as it contains mineral notes. You will also detect a hint of fruitiness in this scent.

Overall, this scent smells like coming out of a bath on a beach vacation. Sometimes, it also reminds me of Suntan oil. 

Moreover, SKYLAR Salt Air EDP is also unisex, like all other perfumes. It would be excellent wear for daytime office hours or a casual hang out with friends. 

Now, let’s talk about another essential thing-longevity. Longevity and projection are acceptable, according to myself. I don’t expect beachy perfumes to be too good in this aspect. These beachy and aquatic perfumes are light-weighted, so their longevity and projection should not be compared with fruity/floral aromas.

Rounding it up, Salt Air EDP is one of my favorite SKYLAR perfumes. Therefore, don’t think twice before buying this salty blue scent.

Key Notes: Coconut, green accords, and sea salt

Price of 50ml at publish: $90

What do I like about it?

Salt Air EDP is relatively inexpensive and does justice to the price. Moreover, it has a decent projection and longevity.

What I don’t like about it?

The scent dries down to a salty note after some hours. Therefore, people who dislike this note won’t be pleased with it.

5) Vacation Arquiste – Affordable and Elegant Beachy Perfume

Vacation by Arquiste came out in 2021 and has increased in overall popularity. This fragrance perfectly reminisces beachy waves, water, and sun.

Dominant notes of coconut, petitgrain, and coconut water add a playful touch to the scent. The heart of this fragrance consists of banana, pineapple, musk, and solar notes. I must say that Vacation by Arquiste is true to its name! It reminds you of the best coastal getaway you have ever had!

I suggest you wear this daytime unisex scent on a tropical vacation or a casual birthday lunch.

As far as longevity and projection are concerned, they are pretty moderate. Although most people say it lasts for 6 hours max, it lasted for around 8 hours on my skin. All thanks to my pro perfume application! Read my article on tips to make a perfume last longer to get an idea.

Overall, Vacation is a nostalgic and transportive fragrance that accurately captures a beachy vision. I am a fan of its sweet banana note.

What do I like about Vacation by Arquiste?

Vacation by Arquiste is affordable and elegant. Moreover, it has decent longevity and silage that justifies the price. Also, I love the banana note.

What I don’t like about it?

I don’t have anything to hate in this scent. However, it is not meant for those who don’t prefer coconut scents. Also, it could do a better job at its longevity.

Regarding beachy perfumes, Sundazed EDP by Byredo is an excellent unisex perfume. I enjoy the note combination, in particular. So, here’s how it goes: The aroma has top notes of Mandarin Orange and Lemon. The heart of the fragrance consists of jasmine and neroli. Eventually, the fragrance dries down to white musk and cotton candy. 

As you might have noticed, Sundazed EDP does not carry the coconut note found in beachy perfumes. However, it is strongly reminiscent of a bright and refreshing sunny morning. Therefore, I could not resist putting it on my list of best beachy perfumes in 2023.

Like all other perfume oils, my NEST Balinese Coconut Perfume Oil has a LOVELY fragrance. Also, as it is a ‘perfume oil,’ the longevity is more potent than any alcoholic perfume. However, silage is moderate. It is an excellent characteristic because you can smell great all day long without being too overpowering!
