I love At The Beach 1966, it makes me happy. The scent brings back fond memories of going to the beach as a little girl with my family. I definitely get old school Coppertone as well as salt water (I swear I can taste the salt when I first put this on) and sand mixed with the scent of warm skin. It is glorious.

I have tried both the absolute and the water formulas, and in my opinion …

Growing up on the East Coast, my summertime memories of the 80s include many days spent at the beach. This perfume captures those days beautifully. Old school Coppertone in the brown bottle, ocean, surf, sand, and a touch of watermelon. I gave a bottle to my sister and she agrees, it smells like those carefree summer days at the beach. Normally I do not like perfume and have to wash it off …Read more

At the Beach 1966 is an extraordinarily accurate -- and extraordinarily *evocative* -- olfactory replication of a hot day at the beach in the northeastern United States in the late 1960s. For those of the right age and background to have memories of such days, this fragrance's effect can seem almost uncanny. One whiff and I can see the schmear of white zinc oxide on my Uncle Joel's …Read more

I've been on a quest for quite some time to find a scent that was reminiscent of those warm, care free and sensual days of the beach. And yes, for me, that would include the scent of sun tan lotion. Very distinct one that just stimulates the mind whenever you smell it. If you're not a beach type, this probably sounds insane, if you are that type, then you KNOW what I'm taking about …Read more

I was born in 1966. I absolutely LOVE the scent of today's Coppertone. This perfume does not smell like that, HOWEVER, every time I smell it, it immediately transports me back to a lovely summer day when I was a young child in the early 1970s and I was learning macrame at the school with a bunch of other people. (Someone must have been wearing the "older" Coppertone that day.) …Read more

The first and thus far only fragrance that has ever moved me to tears. For years I have been searching for a scent that would evoke the notes of Coppertone suntan lotion, sand, surf and the general feel of a summer crowd. Once I learned of this fragrance (and how much it cost), I purchased a decant of the water perfume to try it out. I couldn't get it out of the packaging fast enough. I …Read more

I own the perfume absolute and also have a sample of the water perfume. The notes are slightly different between the two--they don't smell exactly the same. I like the initial smell of the water perfume a little better-- it's a little less pungent-- however, the perfume absolute is much longer lasting. It's really interesting how they both encapsulate the smell of vintage …Read more

A perfect summertime fragrance. It smells true to it's name. The first thing I think of is the original Coppertone sunscreen in the pink bottle. It is definitely a floral scent first and foremost, but I do detect a hint of wet sand and saltiness underneath the Coppertone. It makes me think of childhood days spent at St Simons Island, Georgia. We would play in the salty waves all day long …Read more

My first whiff of this took me to an exact place in time-1985 South Padre Island Tx on the beach, where I am 15 years old and I have slept on the beach in my 16 year old cousin's car. The sunroof was open, we'd slept too long, and the sun was beating down on us. Having spent the previous day slathering ourselves in no-SPF coppertone, this scent is THAT smell.
I bought 4 of …

It does smell like Coppertone suntan lotion. It is not a coco-nutty Hawaiian Tropic suntan lotion scent. Coppertone is more chemical. Also, there is a lot of the outdoorsy sea salt and salt water, an odd add in of watermelon. It is not a clean fresh smell. It is how you smell after a day at the beach. I like it. It reminds me of vacation. It makes me feel kind of sexy, like I do on vacation. I …Read more
