Top 5 "Beach Goddess" Perfumes

When I think of "Beach Goddess" I picture a beautiful, exotic, mesmerizing woman with wavy beached hair that glistens in the sun. She wears a long, sheer dress that peaks at her boho swim suit and tanned skin. She is basically the human version of a mermaid and is utterly irresistible. Who wouldn't want to smell like this exotic, sensual beach goddess themselves? Summer is here and I'm ready to spritz myself into this picture perfect dream world full of beachy goodness. From salty, to fruity, to just plain fun I will share with you my top 5 scents to transport you to feeling like a true beach goddess yourself ;)

Tom Ford Neroli Portofino

Neroli Portofino smells like orange blossoms hovering over the ocean coast, for the sophisticated beach goddess. It is refreshing with blasts of citruses that calm into a natural smelling floral scent. This one is unisex for both women and men, because who wouldn't want to smell like neroli on the Amalfi coast? This is a chic neroli scent that shines and sparkles all the way through. This is for those looking for something aquatic and fresh that still smells glamorous and sensual.

Light Blue Escape to Panarea

Light Blue Escape to Panarea is a sweet and salty delight with layers and layers of musk! It has tonka bean, jasmine and orange blossom to add some sweet femininity and a white musk that layers the whole perfume and makes it extremely sensual. The ambergris will transport you right to the edge of the beach with its salty, refreshing ting. The ultimate "paradise" beach scent that is cuddly, appealing, and feminine.

MIami Glow

For the fun and bright beach goddess, I suggest Miami Glow by Jennifer Lopez. This is super tropical and sweet, perfect for some fun in the sun. A warm and tropical scent with lots and lots of coconut! This is pretty much the scent of a beach party in a bottle and smells like cocktails, dancing and fun on the beach. This perfume is super flirty, so be ready to reel in some fish with this beauty ;)

Thierry Mugler Womanity

Thierry Mugler's Womanity screams of a sensual, sexy, goddess. This opens sweet and fresh with fig and then becomes salty, oceanic, and almost....sweaty? But in a totally good way! This is a seductive sweet fig scent with a tinge of oceanic, savory accords. The notes sound a bit odd with figs and caviar, but in the end you just get another beautiful and exotic creation by Mugler. This is for the dark, seductive, and savory beach goddess.

Byredo Bal D'Arfrique
Last but not least is Byredo's Bal D'Afrique. This is a tropical, woody, citrus scent that smells exactly like a juicy pineapple. This note isn't listed, but it is definitely there! It is slightly sweet, cheery, uplifting, and just plain GOOD! I love wearing this perfume in any season, but it really shines in summer and is my go to fragrance when heading out to the beach. Who doesn't want to smell like a ripe, dripping, succulent pineapple while sun bathing on the warm sand? I know I do!

All of these perfumes can be found in sample sizes over at MyPerfumeSamples!

What perfumes do you think give off a "Beach Goddess" vibe?


  1. Another good beach scent is "Eau so Fabulous" by Isaac Mizrahi. It was a blind buy for me before I moved. It boasts a ripe mango combo with bittersweet osmanthus. Juicy, and fruity fresh. It's a hot summer day in a bottle. I agree with you on the neroli smelling glamorous. It's a very classic feminine smell, but fresh too! Great post! I can't wait to go to the beach here in Oregon. I haven't been in over a decade!

    1. Lian,

      I'm not sure I've tried that one, so I'll have to give it a go this summer! I am visiting Oregon in a few weeks, I've heard it's been beautiful weather over by Portland. Can't wait!

    2. Portland is amazing!!! I've been here a little over a week now. I feel like I've finally found the place I want to spend the rest of my life! :)
