Let’s set the scene: a white house with large windows, a wrap-around porch, and a perfectly manicured garden sitting just feet away from a sandy, white shoreline. Beyond the rows of yachts and sailboats bobbing up and down on the rolling waves like a child’s toy in a bathtub, there are endless miles of perfect blue sea.

Read on to find out which scents smell like everything coastal in a bottle.
