Whether your mind is set on Honolulu, Bali or Amorgos, there's bound to be at least one fragrant composition that presses all the right buttons for you; windswept, transient, sprayed with sea salt, evocative of endless white sand and dry rock or of tropical heat beach-smelling fragrances are a cult favorite for a reason. We all have fantasies like that, especially in the last days spent in the office before our vacation, right?
So in the interest of aiding the daydreaming somewhat (not that it needed much aid) I have composed a detailed slideshow of some of the best "instant vacation" perfumes that have the power to transport you to your own mental slice of heaven. Here is the direct link, enjoy! And get the sarongs, the flip flops and the straw hat at the ready while you're at it. A last minute luggage packing is easier than you think.
For more suggestions broken down not according to destination but according to style, consult my PerfumeShrine article Beach Fragrances: Sunny and Summery.
