Solstice Scents First Flush
Gulf Breeze is a crisp, clean beachy aquatic scent. Imagine standing on a dock as a storm is about to roll in, the air is thick with energy and as the sky turns gray, you are splashed with salty spray from the gulf. It opens with briny saltwater and a touch of roasted sea shells and feels like a sunny day at the beach, though a solid slate-gray sky is not far off. The soft scent of misty rain develops shortly after application, though the saltwater remains in the forefront of this fragrance and is a dominant player into the drydown. With notes of sand, saltwater, wind, seashells, windblown sea oats, soft ambergris and a distant storm fast approaching. Gulf Breeze is an eau de parfum, edp.
SOLSTICE SCENTS DESERT GULF BREEZE REVIEWS
Fragrantica: Smells exactly what it sounds like. Salty ocean breeze. Sea shells. Sand. Oceanic. Slightly green and fresh. I’m not sure how Angela has captured these things and put them in a bottle. But it’s true to the name. I’m not sure I’d view this as a perfume. It’s more of a scent experience. Some people may be put off by all of the very true to life ocean smells. I quite like it myself and I don’t mind wearing it as a personal scent. I live in South Carolina and this reminds me of my favorite beach here that I like to visit.
Fragrantica: On me this smells like a divine mix of sea beach air and faint summery male perfume. On my dad it smells like a damp cellar. So you won't know which you'll get until you try it. I adore it but then again salty rainy scents are my favorites because I put atmosphere above 'smelling nice to other people'.
Reddit: I was SO excited when I read these descriptions.... and Solstice Scents definitely delivered. I can't believe how awesome this is. It is a crisp, clean, fresh, salty and refreshing aquatic fragrance. Y'all, this is ocean in a bottle. You'd think you were sitting in the sand. It's fresh, clean, salty water (not fake beach scent at all). If you love Sea of Gray, you'll like this too. It's like Sea of Gray's lighter cousin. Total win!
