I’m on a marine roll this week. Yesterday I reviewed my favorite aquatic, HEELEY Sel Marin. Today I reveal my favorite “beach” scent: CB I Hate Perfume At the Beach 1966.
At the Beach 1966 smells like orange blossom tanning gel, oysters and a sushi bar. The squawking of seagulls… It is very literal but isn’t that the point of many of the perfumes in the CB I Hate Perfume line? At the Beach 1966 smells like being at the beach, a rocky northern beach. It doesn’t smell tropical or sandy. It’s pastey white legs peaking out of Bermuda shorts. It smells like oysters and gulf. It smells like high winds and partially clear skies. I love it. It’s one of my favorite CB I Hate Perfume perfumes. The oils does well with body heat and then it starts to smell exactly like a day at the beach. The fragrance is an ozonic oyster-vanilla with driftwood at it’s base.
Notes listed include Coppertone 1967, wet sand, seashell, driftwood and boardwalk. Launch date 2005. PERFUMER – Christopher Brosius
Give At the Beach 1966 a try if you like cognitive aquatics. Or if you like perfumes like HEELEY Sel Marin, Demeter Suntan Lotion, CB I Hate Perfume Mr. Hulot’s Holiday and/or Serge Lutens Fleur d’Oranger.
The perfume oil (what I’ve reviewed) retails for $100 and is available at CB I Hate Perfume.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Orange blossoms, oysters and driftwood. I consider it a masterpiece.

I think people either love or hate At the Beach 1966. If you’re old enough to remember the smell of old Coppertone and long summer days at the beach and pool in a time long before parents worried their kids would get kidnapped and molested, you’ll probably be transported by this memories this scent invokes.
Favorite comment on this fragrance that I’ve ever read or heard 🙂
