Rating: Used in cold process soap. Out of the bottle I loved the scent and thought it was a blend of suntan lotion and something else that I could not place my finger on. It accelerated trace and almost was soap on a stick. I had to literally throw it into the mold in globs. Do not attempt a swirl! After the cure it changed to be very floral. The men in my family hate it and say it's girly floral. I used at 5% of total batch weight and this is still very strong at week 7. Curious to see how the customers respond.

Rating: I use this in flip flop and seashell soaps. It smells a little like sunscreen and reminds me of vacations!
By:Andrea, Katy, Texas Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-Mar-2011
Rating: What a fantastic scent! Everyone who smells it tells me it reminds them of the beach. I blend with Frankincense and a little bit of anise star for an extra-clean day in the sun. With every whiff I can almost feel the warm sand between my toes.

Rating: A customer told me "It smells like the beach". I have smelled other beach scents and this one is my favorite. Could be unisex scent. Very strong.
By:Lynda, Birmingham, Alabama Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 08-Dec-2008
Rating: A nice summer scent that reminds me of sun tan oil. I mixed it with a little creamy coconut for massage. Wonderful on its own and mixed with the coconut. I will try the reviewer's suggestion with the Hawaiian mix.

Rating: This oil smells good mixed with coconut cream. Smells like suntan lotion and saltwater.

Rating: It's a sunny day at the beach in a bottle! You can smell the suntan lotion and floral/musk? Either way it's REALLY nice!
By:Christine, Limoges, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Another beach type scent, I mixed it with the Hawaiian Lei (two-layered soap) and they compliment each other. (I find) I love my soap that I keep for myself! :)

Rating: I like the fresh top notes that are like sunshine on the beach to me... will get this one again. Very nice and fresh.

Rating: I normally don't like ocean scents AT ALL, but this one is actually really good. It's very appealing to men, so many of whom LOVE the ocean scent, but it could easily be unisex, and it blends very well with a variety of scents. It's also not as overpowering as many of the fragrance oils tend to be. A great option if you want something ozone-like but a little softer and subtler.
By:Lauretta, San Diego, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 19-Jun-2010
Rating: This is a hard scent to describe, and I had a contest in my soap store to see who could name it...and the winner is "Sun"Day Mornings. This is a wonderful scent that has a limiting name b/c it's more then just a summer scent. Really pleased with how strong it held in my soap.

Rating: I'm glad I took a small risk and purchased this lovely FO :) I'm diffusing it along with Sandalwood Supreme FO and the scent is lovely and warm! I'm a big fan of an "expensive brand name candle", but with these beautiful, long lasting FO's, diffusing is not only less expensive, it just makes good sense! And I'm all about that! At this price point you cannot go wrong~!You will enjoy this!

Rating: Update on my review after soaping. This FO really accelerated trace for me, started to rice. Still smells yummy though.
Rating: I am a new customer to New Directions Aromatics and have searched high and low for a Sun and Sand fragrance. This is the most wonderful fragrance and brings back wonderful memories of beach holidays. I also ordered Rose Garden. They are both outstanding and customer service has been wonderful. I look forward to being a long-term customer. I am so glad that I found you!! Thank you, thank you!!
Rating: I use this scent to make soap, bath salts and bubble bath. It has been adopted by a spa that I supply as one of their top selling scents, please dont ever discontinue this FO. It reminds me of my happy times in Cuba

By:Kim, Quesnel, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This really does capture perfectly the smell of a day at the beach. It's extraordinary, and I love it. I've already made a whole batch of shower products with this, and yet I still keep sniffing at the near-empty bottle sitting on my desk. I love it that much. It's such a happy smell! I'll need to get more, and soon.
Rating: This is very true to its' description. I wasn't sure what to expect, and when I smelled it, I said,"Oh yeah, it smells just like sun & sand." Which are two things that really don't even have a scent. I try to explain it to my friends, and when they smell it, they agree,"yeah, there's really no other way to explain it, it really smells like sun & sand!" It may be an aquired taste, and not appeal to the masses because it might make you feel like you've been on the beach all day and need a shower! I think it would be great as a candle!

Rating: The scents I have purchased are so sweet smelling....I just love them! No need to shop anywhere else. No worries to you new customers. You will not be disapointed!

Rating: I wasn't to sure about this one at first when I opened the bottle, but when I mixed it, boy was I sorry I didn't do it sooner. It's a big hit.
By:Louis, Faison, North Carolina Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 06-Mar-2008
Rating: You do smell like you just spent all day at the beach!! I love it : )
By:Nikki, Columbus, Ohio Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Apr-2008
Rating: OH MY GOODNESS!!!! I ADORE this scent! I have several candles that smell like this, and I have always wanted to find the scent and now I did and I am SOOOO excited! I love it and have already put it into a lotion! Its fantastic that I can smell like a beach all year round! What a nostalgic scent!
By:Stephanie, Cochrane, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: How anyone's managed to formulate and bottle the smell of the beach is beyond me. Bravo!
By:Crystal, Port Moody, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This scent is very nice in bath products! It's funny but it does not smell anything OUT of the bath like what it smells IN the bath! I used it in bath salts. I also tried it in lotions but I found it was not very conducive - it just didn't hold well. In the bath it has a lovely perfumey smell, very soft.

Rating: A nifty and fun clean smelling scent. Look forward to trying this one out. The quality stands out as soon as you smell it. You've done it again!
By:Susanne, Newmarket, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I let a friend of mine smell this without seeing the name and the first words were "Smells like the beach!"
I could see this going well in a sugar scrub or a scrubby bar of soap.
