    Default The coconut scent I have to choose.

    Hello there people! Thanks for seeing my thread. I am Sotiris , I am 15 years old , and I live in Greece.
    Recently because we're getting into Summer I decided to find a quality Coconut perfume as better as consedering quality, as I can because I like to use pure natural cosmetics. I know I wont find a coconut perfume natural one because simply the coconut scent we all know does not really exist that way we know it in The Coconut.
    So anyway , My first search was on here and i first found Virgin Island Water. I decided to buy it but I couldnt find it anywhere here and where I did , It was about 145 euros , tooo expensive for times of crisis.
    Then i searched a little more and found Yves Rocher - Malaysan Coconut. I had some good critics for this and also its in a very good price so I decided to buy it. I can not find it easily here either.
    So What i basically want is not a coconut sugary fake thing but a Coconut , like tan oil scent , reminding of beach and tropical. This means I dont want a heavy and too sweaty scent but a more seaside scent
    Which would you suggest me to buy?

    Yeia sou, Sotiri!

    l second Bronze Goddess, it's not too heavy & has a nice woody feel along with the coconut. Should be easy to find & not too expensive.

    Hello! Thanks for the greek greeting. Well I could find Bronze Goddess but as long as i know Estee Lauder has '' too much chemical ingredients '' so that pushes me away from wearing anything from them. I go as I can more natural. So anything else?

    l am not sure how easy it will be to find "natural" perfumes in Greece. Just about everything you can find in conventional stores will be mostly made from synthetics, not only Estee Lauder's.

    Well there are shops that have really good quality natural cosmetics like Fresh Line. They have started from here and spread out throughout the world. Many are awakening right now also so we have a boost up in Natural soap stores you know what i mean. My real desire is Virgin Island Water but its very expensive and rare to find on this country.

    Try Marc Jacobs Men, it has that coconutty sun lotion feel to it. Very similar to bronze goddess with better longevity in my experience.

    l know Fresh Line & have bought some lovely products from them. But last time l looked, they did not sell perfumes.
    l believe Korres do, but l don't know if they have a coconut scent.

    I agree with Set Sail St. Barts. It doesn't have coconut listed in the ingredients, but it smells like suntan lotion, tequilla, and lime. It's very nice for a $20 fragrance.

    +1 Set Sail St. Barts

    Also, if you can find or test L'Artisan scents, you can look into Batucada. It's more of a lime/coconut mix. Some people seem to get a lot of coconut out of it, while others don't get much coconut. I'm in the middle - it's a pretty equal blend of coconut and lime, along with some booziness and saltiness. Would totally work on a teenager, IMO.

    I know Lilly Bermuda , I love her work. But I am in Greece and She's in Bermuda. So I'll have to pay soooo many taxes. And better then buy Virgin Island Water , It will cost less than this.

    If you can find it in Greece, Honoré de Près Love Coconut is not only gorgeous- more on the thai cuisine side of coconut than on the suntan lotion side- but also 100% organic!

    I got what the smell is like. I have tried to make my own naturally tincturing the dried meat. It has a very milky nice smell not at all the beachy we know right? Thanks!

    I'm glad you asked this question. It's one of my interests as well.
    It appears as though you found a scent that you like. Congratulations!
    The reason I found this site in the first place was in an effort to try to find samples of Honoré de Près Love Coconut, as I didn't want to buy a whole bottle blind. I did get a 2 ml sample at The Perfumed Court, and I was really pleased to have done so, since I would have been disappointed spending $ on the whole bottle. There is something in it that offends me--not sure what.

    Glad that you were able to find something. Let us know how like it.

    Hey thanks for your nice reply! Well Love Coconut seems to have pure coconut extract which is not how we know it. It's more milky and '' delicious '' than a perfume it self. Thats why they use it mostly in the kitchen. But I suppose blending it correctly and geniously could give a nice natural alternative of a beachy scent. Maybe something in this perfume doesnt go with your '' likes ''. You know when I made my last perfume , i immediently hated it , too sweet and too much white musk. It brought me feelings of throwing out and not pleasure but later it matured and went better , but anyway i have fixed the recipie of it. I will let you know how do I find my choice soon! Thanks!

    Ok I got my Noix De Coco by Yves Rocher. Its straight up coconut with a note of milky chocolate. Pretty light , coconutty , teen , hawaiac , and some beachy. It's not that watery but its very very nice for the beach
    I give it 8 out of 10.

    There are several good coconut fragrances. The ones that I can think of right now are Virgin Island Water, D&G The One, and Marc Jacobs for Men.
