While rich and heady fragrances certainly have their place in our perfume line-up, there’s something endlessly captivating about a fresh, salt-infused scent that makes you long for summer days and relaxing beach strolls. And you’re in luck! Salty notes are having a major moment right now. If you’re eagerly anticipating the warmer months and want a scent to match, or simply want to shake up your olfactory wardrobe, try one of these five salt-infused scents.
Maison Margiela Replica Beach Walk
With notes of bergamot, coconut milk, pink pepper and musk, you’d be forgiven for thinking Maison Margiela’s Replica Beach Walk would smell heavy and intense. But actually, the opposite is the case; hints of ocean spray and lemon soften the scent and elicit thoughts of a comforting afternoon stroll along the seaside.
Jo Malone London Wood Sage and Sea Salt
Perhaps the most famous salt-infused fragrance currently available, Jo Malone London’s Wood Sage and Sea Salt Cologne has become a perfume icon. Notes of ambrette seeds, sea salt and sage combine to create a natural, fresh and sophisticated scent that’s bound to score you compliments.
Giorgio Armani Privé Bleu Turquoise
Inspired by India’s deep spiritual connection with the colour blue, Giorgio Armani Privé Bleu Turquoise represents the meeting of sea and sky. Rich vanilla and incense combine with fresh sea salt and jasmine to create a luxurious fragrance that is equal parts spicy, salty and fresh.
Robert Piguet L’Entier de Robert Piguet
If you tend to favour complex, woody and warm scents, L’Entier de Robert Piguet is right up your alley. The fragrance opens with deep woods, salted bergamot and sea spray, before settling into notes of orris, sage, sandalwood, oud Laos and vanilla. It’s a seductive-yet-energetic scent you’re bound to fall in love with.
P Frapin & Cie Isle of Man EDP
This masculine, fresh and marine scent mirrors the tough, stony landscape of the beaches that surround the remote Isle of Man in the Irish Sea. Opening with aromatic grapefruit, bitter orange and fresh basil, followed by freesia, sea salt and violets, this scent is like a breath of fresh air taken after a long day cooped up inside.
