Coconut fragrances are perfect for hot days and balmy nights, giving you a taste of the tropics wherever you are. Here are some of our favorites (many of which inspired our own creations!):
Tom Ford's Soleil Blanc Eau de Parfum perfectly captures the seductive and sultry character of coconut. The scent features a heady blend of white florals such as jasmine, tuberose, and ylang-ylang, accented by subtle hints of spices and pistachios. Its sultry warmth will banish winter blues while bringing you a fresh sense of sun-kissed optimism – provided you have the budget for it, that is. Those who enjoy Maison Margiela’s Replica collection will also adore Beach Walk Eau de Toilette, an exhilarating coconut scent with a marine twist. Beach Walk features a creamy coconut accord with tropical ylang-ylang notes and a punchy, citrusy opening (courtesy of fresh bergamot and lemon). It’s possibly one of the better light coconut fragrance options given that it only comes in an eau de toilette. Also, if you’d like a coconut-scented perfume you can wear to work, try Versace’s Crystal Noir Eau de Parfum. Black pepper and spicy ginger kick off this sensual and enticing fragrance. Coconut and gardenia combine in the heart notes, while a woody-amber accord softens the pace.
Other notable coconut perfume mentions include Creed’s Virgin Island Water – a spicy-citrus blend with vanilla, tonka bean, and coconut; as well as Rihanna Reb’l Fleur Eau de Parfum, a Barbados-inspired mix of coconut cream with a hint of patchouli and peach.
