Best marine and aquatic perfumes 2023
Today we’ll be taking a look at marine and aquatic perfumes, fragrances that derive their inspiration from our planet’s most essential element, water. For thousands of years humans have gone in search of water for their sustenance and survival – but have you ever wondered what lies hidden in the fragrances that are connected to this element? What is it about them that captivates our souls and takes us back to our very origins?
The revitalising world of aquatic perfumes suddenly took off in the 1980s, when the perfume industry began to discover a whole class of aromas that took their inspiration from the sea, from salt, and from marine plants. Although many aquatic fragrances trigger attractive sensations, only a few have true and lasting depth.
Aquatic perfumes, sometimes called oceanic or ozonic, are a type of fragrance with a limpid, aquatic essence. They are perfect for those of us who love freshness, and the essence of the sea. If you can’t survive without the briny strand, you’ll find its personal fragrance is delivered in this kind of essence. Apart from marine notes, there are other aromas which conjure up beaches and coastal landscapes, above all Ibiza’s legendary calas or coves.
