The main note in this perfume is Coppertone sun lotion from 1967, blended with a new accord especially created for this perfume – North Atlantic. The base of the scent features wet sand, seashell, driftwood and just a hint of boardwalk. The effect when you wear At The Beach 1966 is as if you've been swimming all day in the ocean.

It is available as 2 and 15 ml perfume absolute and 100 ml water perfume. At The Beach 1966 was launched in 2005. The nose behind this fragrance is Christopher Brosius.

Perfume rating: 4.22 out of 5 with 150 votes.

This perfume embodies my inner vision of Don Henley's song Boys Of Summer. Smell this when that chorus kicks in. Nostalgia bursts in the mind and transportation is immediate. Pure love, such a beautiful feeling!

@Jillita: "Prell shampoo" LOL Yep, I agree ;*) The Copertone note is spot on. I'm saving the rest of my sample for an autumn walk along the pier.

I received this today and I really had high hopes for it, but it is awful.

To me, Coppertone has a bergamot/orange/neroli/lavender scent, but this version smelled nothing like it.

Just smelling the bottle with the cap off was a candy, sticky, sickly, sweet (which I think is the watermelon) smell.

On my skin, it smelled of that sickly sweet + plastic--a petroleum smell.

It's just awful. I spent $100 bucks on the most concentrated version, too. I hated this stuff, just hated it.

I forgot a bit that the Demeter scents were sort of the same vibe and that he made those as well. This smelled like a cross between the old Dirt, which I loved, cotton candy (which I hated), and some kind of plastic that was new to me.

In looking for a beach scent, I've ruled out Bobbi Brown's Beach as being too synthetic.

I hate to say it, because I really don't feel like giving him any more money, but the Tom Ford Portofino Neroli (eau de parfum) is currently my top pick for a seaside scent, and it doesn't even really smell all that beachy, but that, and Molton Brown Orange & Bergamot soap smell like Coppertone.

Anyway, totally hated this one. A giant waste of money and a huge disappointment.

Just received a sample of this fragrance; as someone else here mentioned it is true to its name, it certainly smells like you are "at the beach". It's quite impressive how they nailed it on the head, however, I wouldn't want to smell like this on a daily basis. I would prefer it more as a home fragrance rather than a perfume.

Very well executed though!

This scent alongside with Virgin Island Water are Summer vacations in a bottle. Coppertone in a bottle, but it has a cooling effect on me...maybe because it's water based? Perfect for a very hot, summer day, this is a great option for just lounging around or going out casually with some friends. It's also a great value, and the scent lasts about 6 hours on my skin. It's not a very versatile scent, but it's OUTSTANDING for what it should be used for.

Love it!

Perfectly Realized!
I recently purchased a small trial of At the Beach 1966 based on the reviews I read on here and other places. I LOVE IT! Personally, it takes me back to a lost and more innocent time in the early 1970's and long summer days at the swimming pool and the beach. If I close my eyes, I can almost hear the song "Wildfire" playing over the loudspeakers... Ah! The memories this scent invokes.

My husband only thought it smelled like flowers though.

This is by far an awesome fragrance. What makes it even more awesome is its natural formula! It is made from pure essential oils and not synthetic ones like in Bobbi Brown's Beach...

Absolutely convincing from start to finish.

What’s brilliant about this is that it’s not just the ocean or the sand, it’s the ocean sand and suntan lotion with emphasis placed on the latter. This is one of several in the line in which you smell it and struggle to imagine how he could have pulled this off on a technical level. It appears to be a yellow floral of some kind—something a bit buttery—combined with some salty aquatics that never feel like the aquatics that terrorize mainstream releases. While I’m not sure how it would function as a perfume unto itself (it’s linear, somewhat diaphanous, and smells literally like a beach), it’s a real showpiece for Brosius’ talents as faithful replicator of both environment and memory.

Suntan lotion and sea salt. This is a gorgeous fragrance.

I've been wearing What I Did On My Holidays by 4160 Tuesdays a lot (it's not in the database here for some reason). It's also a fragrance meant to evoke memories of being at the beach and I slightly prefer it to this one as it's more unashamedly aquatic (although of course for many people that would be a bad thing!). I wish this one was a bit more forward in its aquatic-ness(?), but that's my only complaint.

It's completely unisex, I can't see it being a problem for anyone in those terms.

It reminds me of a hot, humid day at the beach, that moment where you've just been for a dip to cool off then you run back to your friends to get more sunscreen on before you burn.

I get pretty good longevity out of this - around 8 hours. Sillage is moderate.

I've never smelled 45-year-old suntan lotion, so I'm going to ignore the fact that this was meant to smell like a particular product. If you told me this was a new Gendarme, I'd believe you; right away it has a similar lush green and floral aspect to my beloved but unpurchased Gendarme Green, or even Kiehl's Forest Rain, but the florals are turned up a notch, which might make this serve well as a women's scent. I agree that the sea air is playing a role here, with a trace of something like Aqua Motu, but I wonder if it's simply because we think the beach "smells like suntan lotion" or vice versa, from being so used to that association. Later, the bright freshness starts to fade and leaves behind more powderiness, though I wonder if the note progression in a "water perfume" should be slower because the solvent sticks around longer. By the base, it's a lot closer to just being a standard women's floral scent, but still hasn't totally crossed over because the standard suntan lotion notes (partially violet?) are relatively sharp and assertive. For those of you who are into masculine or not-too-feminine florals, or fans of the Gendarme line, this is definitely worth a try, though I'm not sure I'd use it myself. Thumbs up for uniqueness!

Leave it to CB I Hate Perfume to create a fragrance allowing the vendee to be consumed in "their" own beach. The notes here are pretty much eccentric leaving one to wonder what accords they might be smelling. Judging from the previous reviews everyone has a different take on what's what. At 1st, I get a strong floral accord of something similar to violet. Later everything calmed down to a not so dense nor too floral scent. Honestly, I never got a 100% beach vibe out of this. I would argue that Nautica Voyage smells 1000 times more aquatic and beach-like than At the beach. With that being said, I think this fragrance appeals to all people. I commend the job that this house has done in attempts to recreate 1966 beach nostalgia.

I ADORE this perfume. Really brings back a lot of memories as I was born in 1967 and wore a lot of Coppertone Suntan Lotion as a kid. It smells JUST LIKE IT. In the summer I gravitate between this and Bobbi Brown's "Beach" scent. Her scent has more depth, is a little more interesting, but sometimes I just want to bring back memories and really pretend I'm at the beach. So I grab this :)

Just like the fragrance notes indicate, this is an aquatic that mimics being at the beach. A bit of sand, a bit of suntan lotion and the only thing that's missing in the experience is having water in my ear.

I liked the scent better as a sample than when I got it, although in truth, it may be a dramatic difference in the types. Admittedly, the sample I had was of the absolute version and the bottle I bought was the 100ml water perfume. If I were to rebuy, I'd definitely buy the absolute.

Don't get me wrong, it's a wonderful fragrance but I'm guessing that many of the people who are absolutely in love with it, equate it with nostalgic memories of their past.

Overall, I'd have to say it's a very good summer aquatic but I can think of better or different choices for summer wear, such as Creed's Virgin Island Water or Guerlain's L'eau.

In addition, this fragrance is nearly identical to Bobbi Brown Beach but a bit more expensive.

Not much to add to this topic - only an affirmation: This stuff is Uncanny.

This is not an Interpretation, or a Stylization, or an Idealization - this stuff smells Like you on the beach.

Of course, it's a really specialized thing - most people don't want to actually smell like they're on the beach unless they're actually On the beach. The whole interpretation thing is great, because it makes you smell like you're at a beach, but better.

But it just so happens I Was at the beach in 1966, (Wildwood, NJ) and I built sandcastles and collected shells, freaked out over dead jellyfish and horseshoe crabs and had a hell of a great time. Now, thanks to this stuff, I now realize that I've been terribly homesick for it.

This CB stuff is remarkable, and the biggest problem with it is that you have to choose between smelling Like something (which is cool) or smelling like somebody's really excellent, expensive Interpretation of the Abstract of something. Which is also cool.

Smells true to it's name. The first thing I think of is the old version of Coppertone sunscreen in the pink bottle. It is definitely a creamy floral scent at first, but I do detect a hint of wet sand and saltiness underneath the Coppertone. It makes me think of childhood days spent at St Simons Island, Georgia. We would play in the salty waves all day long until our skin began to burn, then run back to our towels to reapply sun lotion. At the end of the day when I collapsed into a happy exhaustion, this is the essence that still clung to my skin and hair.

I cant believe what I am smelling inside this bottle!! I swear I immediately went back 35 years. As a young teenager I used to pack up my swimsuit, towel, and all my special tanning solutions (Hershey's coco butter, Coppertone and baby oil) and head out on the bus because I didn't have a car that summer I was to young. To work on my tan! Seriously I can smell the ocean and the sand and my skin tanning in this bottle. Its amazing how it captures these smells and allows me to remember a time in my youth that I had almost forgotten. Its not bad for the price and for the memories I just have to go and get it.

I have been searching for months for the perfect beach scent for my annual trip to Mexico this year. I have read lots of reviews, and finally narrowed my choices down to this one and Bobbi Brown "Beach" (Britney Spears also has a beachy fragrance coming out next month, called "Island Fantasy" so I will try that too)

I was tempted to blind-buy "At The Beach 1966", but I decided not to, because I didn't want to waste £80 GBP if I didn't like it. I can only find it in one place in the UK, so bargain hunting is fruitless.

I ordered 2 samples from the USA to try this fragrance. They came today. When I first applied it to my hand, it smelt very chemical-like and synthetic, but after a couple of minutes, this disappeared and I am impressed with the dry down. It definitely does remind me of holidays gone past, sun tan lotion, and days on the beach, and being in the ocean, drying off in the sun. I can also detect a faint grassy note. All in all, its very nice, but I think its an expensive choice - I'm not sure its worth £80 GBP per 100mls?

As I keep smelling this on my wrist, it is reminding me a little bit of Estee Lauder's "Bronze Goddess". I have worn this all day now, and have re-applied, as the fragrance became faint after an hour or so.

In comparison, Bobbi Brown "Beach" costs £38GBP for 50 mls, so it works out just a little less per 100mls. I do prefer "At the Beach 1966" to "Beach" as I think the former is more disctinctive, but honestly, it really is just a suntan-lotion smell at the end of the day. I couldn’t imagine wearnig this at any place other than on holiday.

I am in two minds whether to purchase this or not!

Some friends were talking about "Coppertone" so I Googled it, simply to see what the dominant note was. (We were arguing jasmine versus orange. I was on the jasmine side.) I came upon reviews for this perfume and the Bobby Brown version. The reviews for the CB version were so positive that I immediately ordered the sample from CB I Hate Perfume.

OMG, it IS the original Coppertone! To me there's a lovely melon/jasmine thing going on and it really does dry down to a sand/surf mood. The ingredients have a nice, rich, quality feeling. Nothing cheap about this scent!

It's December now, and the beachy thing is just what I need to feel up during these dark nights. So I'll be ordering a full bottle and wearing this one regularly. I can still smell it at 6:00PM (put it on at 8:00am this morning), and I'm still not tired of it.

Can't wait to try some of his other scents, as well.

Just back from 'Liberty' in London, one of the few places that stocks I Hate Perfume. I went specifically to try this on, this is how intrigued I was by it's name and the reviews here. First of all let me say that I'm in no way experienced in desctibing a scent, so please bear with me. The only 'beachy' fragrance I've tried up to now was Bobbi Brown's 'Beach'. The 'At the Beach 1966' is all the same emotion without the sickening (and very straightforward feminine) jasmine top note that seems to be covering the underlying sand, water, beach essence. 'At the beach' is unisex, fresh but not citrusy, almost as if a rush of sea air is entering your lungs, mixed with minerals and a lingering smell of not coconuty sunscreen that is very faint in the background. It reminded me of a beach, but not a crownded or a tropical one, an oceanic scenery and the feel you get when you have just come out of the water. I could also sense some cucumber notes (not my favorite and faint enough thankfully). I tried the essence, hence the most concetrated form of this scent and I'm sad to say that 2 hours afterwards I can barely smell it... Like holidays on the beach it didn't last long:(

Edit Jan 2013: Finally succumbed and bought the absolute of this liquid memory. Its longevity isn't as good as I hoped but it's very good layered with Bobbi Brown's Beach

At the Beach 1966 is an extraordinarily accurate -- and extraordinarily *evocative* -- olfactory replication of a hot day at the beach in the northeastern United States in the late 1960s. For those of the right age and background to have memories of such days, this fragrance's effect can seem almost uncanny. One whiff and I can see the schmear of white zinc oxide on my Uncle Joel's nose and feel the elastic around the leg holes of my Speedo chafing me where the sand and salt got caught beneath it. This is not perfume as fashion, but perfume as art. It is a narrative rendered entirely in smell.

The narrative opens with the unmistakeable sweet, chemical smell of Coppertone -- not current Coppertone, but the Coppertone suntan lotion of the late '60s and early '70s, back before anyone called it "sunscreen," back when only the palest and stodgiest of middle-aged grown-ups used the bottles that came with SPF ratings. It is a very distinctive smell, and in the context of this fragrance, it operates almost as a chevron pronouncing the time and place in a film might. It is the olfactory equivalent of a title card reading "August, 1966."

Having thus established the time frame of the narrative, the suntan lotion accord seems to recede somewhat, allowing other smells to come forward to share the spotlight. There is a realistic sea water accord, cold and so briney you can practically taste it. A touch of ozone gives the impression of the breeze coming off the water. Then there is the mineral tang of hot beach sand, the organic chalk of crushed shell. There is a dry and sun-bleached woody note: a boardwalk, perhaps, or possibly a set of silvered cedar planks laid as a pathway across some sharp-grassed dunes.

And then, as dry-down approaches, there comes what to me is the most extraordinary note of all: a smell that I can only describe as that of hot skin. Not the smell of sweat, mind you, but the smell of skin that has been heated by the sun. It is a hot sunny skin smell. So compelling was this illusion of warmth, of literal *heat,* in fact, that I actually found myself doing a touch test, just to convince myself that the skin where I had applied the fragrance wasn't really any warmer to the touch than my bare skin elsewhere. Now that is extraordinary.

While the show At the Beach puts on is stunningly evocative, it does not last very long -- not, at any rate, in the water perfume (the absolute might well last longer). In a few hours, it is all over save for a white musk rather reminiscent of dryer sheets, which sticks around for some time after the narrative proper has ended. But that's just as well, really. It's hard to imagine wearing this fragrance the same way one might wear, say, something that you slap on in the morning to smell nice for the next eight hours at your workplace. And frankly, I'm not sure if I'd really *want* to smell like mid-century suntan lotion all day long. A shorter duration seems more appropriate for a fragrance that acts so effectively as a window to another time, another place. As a memory in a bottle.

I've been on a quest for quite some time to find a scent that was reminiscent of those warm, care free and sensual days of the beach. And yes, for me, that would include the scent of sun tan lotion. Very distinct one that just stimulates the mind whenever you smell it. If you're not a beach type, this probably sounds insane, if you are that type, then you KNOW what I'm taking about here.

Never seemed to find the right combination, and can tell you, coconut, fruit and rum just doesn't cut it. The tan lotion scent, however it is achieved, is a key needed component. Even went so far as to spritz on the now discontinued, light spray pump version of Coppertone - which actually works pretty well:)

Beach 1966 is AMAZING. It has reviewed well, so thought I would give it a try and bot the 100ml water version and crossed my fingers. Feared that it would smell WAY to much like a chemical, or that it was all a lie, and would be just another sweet/fruity scent with a Beachy name.

It indeed captures the idea. Just a nice hint of the lotion, combined with scents of sand and marine. Very unisex in that it has a pleasant softer quality as well. A winner here!

$80 is not big deal for Beach 1966, for the 100ml will last for a very long time. And for those wanting their own sense of style and statement, it's pretty unique in that is appears to be available almost exclusively from CB and is a pretty well kept secret - one has to do some serious searching on the web just to find it!

I really wanted to like this scent. when I read the discription I imagined this memory I have of going to the beach, applying cliniques unsented sunscreen on and enjoying myself. I felt like this perfume should have reflected my memory of my beach trip but sadly it didnt.
This isnt my beach, but I dont know if it is anyones beach, I dont really feel any of the sand, salty water, or starfish notes. I seem to detect some sort of flower impression that hasnt made any olfactory impact on me. At the beach 1966 isnt a repugnant smell it just isnt what i am looking for.
functionally the perfume is also a bit of a dissapointment, is doesnt last very long and the projection is poor.

One of my absolute favorites. I used to wish for someone to come out with a perfume that smelled like coppertone and finally it happened. As a native Californian, I've worn coppertone suntan lotion on my skin my entire life. Coppertone is the scent of summer to me. It is fun, free, great music, a hot fun in the summertime kind of feeling. Thank you Christopher Brosius for creating this scent that makes me incredibly happy when I wear it.

I got my sample yesterday. Wow, this does take me back. I think that this is supposed to channel Coppertone sunscreen. I don't remember what we used when I was a kid, but I recognize this scent. It zoomed me back to my childhood--hot sunny days at the lake. That alone was well worth the 3 bucks. Wow.

I can't wait to get my hands on some other CB fragrances. Any SUGGESTIONS?

I also love the lack of screechy synthetic or buzzy aldehedic notes, btw. I've spent the last few weeks trying to smell everything in existance and its nice to encounter something so familiar in smell but so different from most of the stuff on the market.

This is a summer's day at the beach in a bottle. I have never used Coppertone, so can't really compare scents, but this is a fresh, almost tangy, fragrance and has good staying power. Even sat in an office I can almost feel transported to the beach when I'm wearing this.

At the Beach delivers on its promise: sun cream, briney seawater, sea breezes & beachside adventure. As for the 1966 reference, I am -13years too late to offer an educated opinion on that.

I do find this enjoyable but it is more of a novelty than something I would wear to smell pretty. No doubt Christopher Brosius would consider this a huge compliment but it won't fill his pockets with gobs of lovely cash. At least he still has his ego to keep him company :)

OK... it's time for a guy to speak up... This is what aquatic SHOULD be. This smells just like the beach! Fun in a bottle best describes this one. I wouldn't expect this to project much or last long. But then again, who cares? This is just too much fun to pass up on...

I don't get any organic smells I would expect to smell at the beach, it's a bit cleaner than that. I live on the lake though, so maybe the ocean's beaches smell different. Aqua Motu smells like a day at the beach to me. This smells like a day at the pool.

I just received my tiny bottle of the absolute version. I have been a big fan of Bobby Brown's Beach line and have many products in that line. This is similar but better... I just LOVE this scent! It induces so many wonderful memories, if I could bath in it, I would. I only wish he made a lotion version of this as well.

This is amazing--this is like an olfactory memory! When I smell it, I see tan bodies glistening with Coppertone sunblock, the heat coming off off from the sun baked sand, and the salty mist from waves crashing on the shore. I grew up in Florida, 30 minutes from the beach. This transports me back to South Beach, minus the body odor coming from sweaty bodies and fishy notes from the ocean. I'll have to wear this again when it's 20 degrees out and I'm shoveling snow.

I'm an Australian born in 1967 and spent every weekend and holiday at the Gold Coast. I remember driving into Surfers Paradise at night, we would pass a huge neon sign advertising Coppertone. It pictured a little girl sporting a dark tan with a dog pulling her bikini bottom down to reveal the white tan line. A bit cheeky but it always marked the beginning of the holiday. Straight to the beach with coppoertone and little else!
At the Beach 1966 has captured that memory completely. I am lying in the swealtering heat, hot skin, slight humid breeze blowing and sending gentle wafts of coppertone to my nostrils. I can hear the dull roar of the pounding waves and squeals from children each time a wave comes in. Soon, it becomes uncomfortably hot, and I'm a bit sticky with some sand stuck to my leg. My biggest question- should I get up and have another swim, or just lie here and enjoy the sun a bit longer?
This is my youth in a bottle. It is superb. One spray takes me to my happy place!

This scent blew me away. I was very curious to how it would smell, I knew what the coppertone would be like but I wanted to see how close exactly he got to the "beach" smell. He nailed it.

This scent is exactly the smell I remember when I used to the beach almost every other weekend with my family and friends. I LOVE IT.

It starts of with the smell of freshly applied coppertone, after sometime it tones down a bit but still lingers and then the magic happens, where the beach really comes in. It's the smell of salt water, sand, and coppertone altogether and when I say salt water I mean I feel like I can almost taste it when I smell it. Believe me you'll know what I mean when you try it for yourself. I feel like im laying in the wet sand with the sun beaming down and letting the water rise up to me. It smells like youve litterally been at the beach for hours. Theres even what seams to me like a warm sweaty skin note but not a nasty B.O. type sweat, its a pleasant smelling sweat from the mixture of salt water and coppertone. Then some boardwalk comes in, the damp wood beneath your feet with the suns rays again beaming down. A total masterpiece once again from the wonderful Christopher Brosius.

This scent is by far, the most accurate smell of a beach day I have EVER and probably will EVER experience other than actually being at the beach. I recommend to anyone who grew up going to the beach often, or still loves going.
