So two things to say about the spectacular Amouage Beach Hut. It’s the boyfriend shirt of scent for a start, a ‘masculine’ fragrance that smells absolutely amazing on women. Secondly, this thing is a loooong ride: all night, all day, throwing out a captivating must-sniff effect that doesn’t remind me personally of a beach house as much as a lush tropical cabana.
Beach Hut is categorised as a woody aromatic and it sure fits that bill. A bright, savoury, minty opening is sharpened right up with the super green of galbanum, which also gives Beach Hut a slightly retro 80’s cologne vibe at the start. Orange blossom (just evident to my nose) softens the edges.
Around this is entwined the earthier green of ivy and that earthiness settles into the skin as the more aromatic character of vetiver kicks in (the vetiver in Beach Hut is to die for). Slowly over the wear, Beach Hut dries out into a smooth, weathered wood, masculine but warm.
