In the end I don't really know what that ocean smell is. At low tide, I can smell the ocean from a few miles away, although then it predominately smells of seaweed, mucky sand, and perhaps stranded shellfish (oysters, clams and mussels mostly).
Maybe it is iodine that I'm smelling, mixed with salt.
The ocean off Bermuda or the Caribbean smells sweeter, lighter and cleaner to me - not so briney.
So, with that in mind - what commercial fragrances have iodine and that briney salt smell? Demeter's Salt Air; Hawaiian Surf (some say it's the same fragrance re-packaged.) I have the Salt Air and it does have a bit of what we're talking about. Those are really the only two that come *somewhat* close.

IMHO a "real" sea-air fragrance has yet to be captured perfectly.
Demeter's Salt Air; Hawaiian Surf (some say it's the same fragrance re-packaged.) I have the Salt Air and it does have a bit of what we're talking about. Those are really the only two that come *somewhat* close.
