We just got back from another great trip to Port A. Every time we go out to Padre Island, I smell a fragrance that I don't recall as a kid growing up in Florida. Sage is the closest thing I can imagine. But maybe it is a grass? Any help identifying it is appreciated.

I wish I knew too! I moved away a few years back (I lived on the Gulf side of Park Rd 22 so I smelled it every day, depending on the wind) and it's still one of my most favorite smells. I laugh when I see some candle company trying to replicate 'dune grass' because they can't seem to come close.

As funny as it sounds, I used to smoke pot a long time ago. The best way I can describe this smell is like some high-quality grass!

Florida beaches don't have the vegetation covered dunes that Mustang and Padre Island have. I smell "salt" when I'm down there, but that's intensified by the smell of the vegetation and the mix of both fragrances. There are 80 different "dune plants" on the islands - Sage is not one of them.
