10 Ocean Scents That Will Instantly Transport You To The Beach

Here are some perfumes, infusers and oils to remind you of a warm summer beach, and all the freedom it brings, even when it feels a million miles away.


Summer is long gone at this point, and though you may be currently entrenched in the intoxicating scents of cinnamon and nutmeg, there's probably a small part of you that's still craving the sweet, salty smell of the beach. So here are some perfumes, infusers, and oils to remind you of a warm summer beach, and all the freedom it brings, even when it feels a million miles away.

 

1. Bobbi Brown, Beach

This delicious scent comes in body lotion and eau de toilette. Its top note is jasmine, and it's infused with sea spray and sand, so it feels like you're awash in summer waves.

 

2. Good Home Store, Beach Days Reed Diffuser

Who doesn't love a good diffuser? They're safe, economical, and their results are heavenly. This one smells of sand, sunshine, and r-e-l-a-x-a-t-i-o-n.

 

3. Beach Fragrances, Montauk

With narcissus and water lily, it's like walking the beach on a bright day.

 

4. 419 Trading Co., Bay Rum & Sea Salt

If your summer brought you to the Caribbean (or you're just dreaming of a good rum cocktail), relive the experience with this home candle by 419 Trading Co.

 

5. Tocca, Simone

Light, fruity, and deliciously fragrant, this scent is also infused with a little amber and musk, so it smells like the ocean at sunset.

 

6. L'Occitane en Provence, Lime Verbena Sachet

There's really nothing so French as a subtle Mediterranean scent in your home. L'Occitane's Verbena sachet can be placed in any little crevice or corner of your home to give a whiff of the delicate Mediterranean seaside.

 

7. Demeter, Salt Air

While you may not think sunscreen is a necessarily endearing scent, Demeter infuses just a touch of it at the bottom of the fragrance so you feel like your skin has been kissed by the sun. It's a breath of coconut, salt, and tranquility.

 

8. Red Flower, Ocean Collection

If one home scent simply isn't enough, why not fill your bathroom, kitchen, and clothes with it? Red Flower has an entire collection of ocean-scented products - from candles to soap, shampoo, and detergent. It's full of cardamom, bergamot, and Eucalyptus and is slightly reminiscent of a Greek beachtown.

 

9. Bath and Body Works, Waikiki Beach

Waikiki Beach Coconut Body Lotion - Signature Collection - Bath & Body Works

Everyone knows Bath and Body Works scents aren't exactly, um, subtle. But who has time for subtlety when the November wind is roaring? Slather on some Waikiki and find yourself instantly transported.

10. Scented Space, Driftwood

It's the perfect combination: woody and wintery with a touch of summer and sandalwood.
