When it comes to selecting a scent to wear on the sand, there’s one ingredient that you need to avoid: alcohol. Not only does the alcohol in perfume (found in most mass-produced versions) make it fade faster, but it also dries out your skin, especially when subjected to sun and heat. Add to that the fact that alcohol can also cause sensitivity and adverse skin reactions, and you have a recipe for disaster.

What’s interesting is that most people who think they are allergic to perfume are actually allergic to the alcohol within it. With that in mind, we reveal Savoir Flair’s picks of the five best alcohol-free perfumes for a day at the beach – or just about anywhere else for that matter.

Elizabeth and James 'Nirvana' Perfume Oil

For a delicate, feminine fragrance that also exudes a sophisticated air of mystery, this perfume oil is a must-have. Notes of peony are blended with musk and lily of the valley, whilst natural oils of evening primrose and safflower nourish skin, ensuring that your scent stays put come sun or sweat.
