Reviews of Cococabana

Genre: Fruity Floral

Giorgio goes to the beach! …but seriously, the coconut and tuberose accord has been done much better in Dominique Ropion's sublime and ethereal Carnal Flower for Frederic Malle. This sweet, clumsily executed version smells like a floral flavored suntan lotion. What's the point?

At first I get a fruity, citrusy, tropical accord — I actually like it because it's not extremely tropical – bitter orange and recessive coconut. It’s really quite an excellently bright and lively accord. The tuberose and the ylang-ylang are used very effectively as a full floral background to the orange / coconut. The tuberose is not a blaring version; it’s kept quiet in this particular combination, letting the enjoyable fruit accord continue on in prominence. The first couple of times I tried Cococabana the fruit / floral accord didn’t last very long and a strong green note took over the fragrance. But now that has stopped happening, and the fruit / floral accord holds its own for at least an hour or two without interference from a green note. The original accord turns a bit sharp and acidy just before the base takes over, but then the fragrance eases into a very nice cedar and – they say – palm base. I’ve seen this fragrance take some hits on the boards, but I certainly can’t complain about the way it treats me. I’ve worn it several times and it has proven to be a more than adequate EDT and a very good performer.

I couldn't wait to try this, but it was a big disappointment! It's not tropical or refreshing, it is bland,unsweetened coconut milk mixed with cooking oil.
