The fragrance: Refreshing top notes of grapefruit and bamboo leaves blended with lavender and sun-drenched neroli conjure up Californian beaches, while the base notes of rainforest tonka bean and salty driftwood will remind you of the blazing summer sun.

What’s your initial reaction? 

Nice! I like the smell. It reminds me of the beach.

What can you smell?

Instant freshness. It’s high end, clean and warm.

If you close your eyes, where does it take you? 

To the beach, in a cool bar, drinking a cold beer.

Would you wear this to stay fresh during sailing events? 

Yes, definitely.

Why do you think guys should wear this in summer? 

It’s fresh, not too overpowering and an easy after shave to wear every day. Whether you’re planning a trip to the beach or just want to be reminded of it, it will keep you smelling great.

When you finish a sailing event, how important is freshening up to you?

It’s really important. After a race, there are usually social activities in the evening, at the sailing club or in a bar. Next time, I’ll be freshening up with Hollister Wave For Him.

The fragrance: Californian flowers mix with juicy citruses and blackberry sorbet for a sparkling scent to cool you down. At its base, the creamy sandalwood and amber crystals capture the atmosphere of a perfect Californian sunset.

What’s your initial reaction? 

It’s fruity and summery, and it reminds me of girls who like to sunbathe.

What type of girl would this perfume suit? 

I think it would suit the younger generation, and girls who enjoy the outdoors.

What do you like about the smell? 

Its sweetness. It reminds me of a red sunset over a super-blue sea.
