Thread: Tiki type scents?
What kind of scent would you say has a Tiki island or a Tiki bar kind of feel? Kind of a Hawaiian, Polynesian, Exotica lounge music type of scent.

Funny that I should come across this topic, I just put on a sample of MPG Bahiana and thought "This would be PERFECT for having tropical drinks on the beaches of Hawaii." It features a wonderful blend of pineapple and mandarin with the kind of sweetness and brightness I expected out of ananas fizz. In fact this blows ananas fizz out of the water. I'll be suggesting a group purchase (3.3 oz. maybe 6 people @ 1/2 oz. each) of this on the sell/swap board soon.
CK One summer 2006, Miami Glow, CSP Vanille Pineapple, Demeters Kahala collection (they claim to be having tiki vibe): Blue Hawaii, Pina Colada, Hawaiian Surf...I am also curious to read more suggestions, especially masculine versions
Kenzo Jungle pour homme has a fruity-coconut-woody thing going on.
Oriscent, AgarAura Pure Ouds, Creed, LIDGE, Patou Pour Homme, tons of niche and rare stuff for sale!
most definately. smelled it once, wish it were available. Similarly you have the coconut-that-is-actually-fig in Marc Jacobs.Originally Posted by AZsmells
I also find Bvlgari Aqua to fit the bill, as its more flavorful than most aquas. Not so much fruity, so it doesn't fit exactly the mixed-drink-with-an-umbrella direction the thread has taken, but it has a spiciness that I feel suits a beachside Lu'au by moonlight.
These are great responses! I really appreciate it!
Givenchy makes one Incense Hawaii (or something like that). It's not distributed in the US, but it is in Asia or Europe. Hate to be so vague .
I'd love to score a sample.
I can just about hear the surf off Diamond Head. Hey, is that Martin Denny?
Agree with Kenzo Jungle.
Estee Lauder's Beyond Paradise is an excellent one for a tropical feeling.
Oh, oh, oh...what about Agatha Brown's Imperial Jade Emporer and Conquest for Men.

Yes, Jowcoffee, I hear it every day and every night. Ahhhhhhhh....
A company called Comptoir Sud Pacifique makes a line of fragrances inspired by French Polynesia (basically Tahiti). Check out their website:
Click on the Fragrance Menu on the website. The Spice Route and Rain Forest categories are more slanted toward men. Only thing is, the stuff's not cheap!

Obsession Night has a pear note on top that smells surprisingly like coconut.
Only thing I can think of, sorry. Though if you wanted something tropical, but not fruity or loungey, bay rum would fit the bill... ;D
Liz Claiborne's Bora Bora of course.
