My obsession of the moment is all things beachy. Summer is winding down and i really wanted a fragrance that captured that time at the beach. What I like about this fragrance is that it's not a tropical scent, it's exactly like a day at the beach but a little cleaner. Evokes copper tan sun lotion, sea spray, and hints of jasmine. Its just a wonderful scent if that's what you're going for.
The packaging is nothing special but this is a minimalist fragrance so simple packaging works best anyhow. One lippie off for the high price and only semi-descent staying power. Otherwise, I just love it.
Oh my goodness, this scent smells just like the original copper tone lotion I used to use when I was a kid in the 70's. reminds me of the beach. I think it's a perfect summer scent-warm, floral, slightly oily if that makes any sense. I've repurchased this twice and will continue to do so.
Just got my Beach perfume delivered to the office today, I could not be more happy with it! The summer weather in Montreal has been literally non-existent. We've had non-stop rain and wind and fall-like weather. I ordered this perfume because I could not afford to go on vacation this year and I needed a good summer pick me up! When I'm wearing it, I feel like I am on vacation! It smells sweet and exactly like the beach. I pick up faint aquatic notes like salt water but also very light floral and a sunscreeny scent. It's just what I needed for this summer and I'm very happy to own it now.
It's not too overpowering or heavy and very fresh and clean feeling. Everyone around me has good things to say about it as well. I'm drinking coconut water and the sun is coming out, with this perfume on, I feel like summer is finally here :)
Smells like the name "beachy" this scent reminds me of suntan lotion on a hot summer day. Doesn't smell like coconut or hawaiian tropic products but more like a mixture of nivea cream and floral suntan lotion. This also smells very similar to Yankee Candle's sun & sand, if you like that one, you will love this! I give it one lippie off because of the staying power, the packaging is nothing special and for me it's hard to find (europe) because BB counters keep telling me this is not available so I have gotten a tester bottle from a nice SA for free but I would buy it again if I can find it!
Wow, this is a must try if you enjoy attracting attention with your fragrance. It's a head turner and always puts a smile on people's faces not because it is the most unique summer scent but because it's the smell of fun summer holidays everyone is familiar with:) In my experience, it also surprises people because you would smell like you've just come home after a hot day at the beach.
On my skin, Bobby Brown's beach does not evoke a virgin hideaway surrounded with complex scents of mother nature. Bobby's is a big, popular and perhaps well-populated beach with white plastic decker chairs, colourful beach umbrellas, and bursting with energy. Beach volleyball, rollerblades, young people and cheerful smiles. It's very amicable; it doesn't smell expensive or anything but there is nothing cheap smelling in it.
The fragrance opens with a big burst of jasmines on my skin. I'm not exactly a lover of white flowers and I don't tolerate indoles well, but the jasmines here are probably the airiest and brighest I have smellt to this day. They are voluptuous and radiant at the same time. I don't get an obvious mandarin scent from Beach but there's something sweet and juicy in it.
The heart reveals the good old Coppertone everyone is talking about and I prefer this to many other beach fragrances loaded with coconut. Only, it quickly transforms into something salty, warm and slightly oily on my skin. This is how my skin smells exactly when I'm holidaying in my mother's house. Long lazy days by the beach, skin soaked up in heat and still bearing some remnants of salty Mediterranean on itself. This isn't exactly nature; it's one bit of nature and one bit of summery skin products. There is also something that's very healthy smelling in it.
I wouldn't buy a full bottle of it because there are so many other things I would like to try. Also, I wouldn't wear it on holiday because what's the point of trying to simulate the beach while you are actually there? Still, I wouldn't say no to a decant or a second-hand bottle to use as a surprising mood-lifter during cold days and staycations:)
It has medium sillage on my skin but loses its oomph rather quickly. I recommend trying it to everyone who wants a bit of fun.
Beach is spot-on for the capture of the beach and ocean. To me, it smells exactly like Coppertone, salty air, and ocean on the skin. In fact, I like it as the day progresses and it becomes subdued. Yes, some might say that it disappears, but if you smell yourself at the wrist, it is still there. Even through hand washing, it's still there.
I purchased the lotion and that layering helps to keep the fragrance going most of the day. I have also discovered that BBW Sea Island Cotton is just the perfect compliment to use as the lotion for the Beach perfume. Love it.
This is a unique fragrance, it must be layered and m/b sprayed on clothes to getting any lasting power, which is disapponting but not a deal breaker. It DOES smell like the beach exactly and that is very unique. I bought two bottles as it does not last long and needed one for car and the mositurizer, the oil is very weak in fragrance. If you really really like the smell of the ocean get this.
I love the smell of this product! Love how it smells like copertone on the beach! However, the staying power is very disappointing!! It only lasts a few minutes! I put it on and it disappears too fast!
Well this was dissapointing. Been eagerly trying to get my hands on a sample of this for a long time. Smelled rather sour "off". In truth this is probably what most non glamorous beaches smells like, not the fresh tropical island paradise ones we all daydream about.
ok, objectively, this is one hell of a unique perfume....
for all of you non-americans, it is very hard to describe what kind of combo this is...
let me try, at least...
if you've been using Yves Rocher cosmetics, they have a wonderful shampoo called Nutrition Nourishing shampoo (picture of oats on it)....and everytime I washed my hair with it I was immensely reminded of a beautiful time I've spend that one summer in France, when I was nearly 14....it was the smell of strange people, sea, luxurious promise of something to come, of foreign beaches,of strange mediterranean flowers called pythospore..(very B&BW Moringa way)....
I could'nt call this ''a natural'' fume because it is a perfume that captures the atmosphere....the feeling....it is not an average scent that clothes you like other perfumes...
I can't say I love it, it is much too soon for that, but I really,really like it....
great gardenia, not too boring or too strong...vera interesting indeed...
but after 10 minutes I have a feeling that this one won't be lastin' long..
and according to all the reviews, the living time of Beach is very short...nevertheless, I thing I just might enjoy it to the max, layering Beach with some other scents...
beachy? well, yeah...buit most of all gardenia-laden in the best/mediterranean/pythospore/postapocalyptic sort of way
