#12 Pacifica Indian Coconut Nectar


An Affordable Deliciously Sweet Coconut Vanilla Perfume

I’ll be straight with you…

Is this a sophisticated super complex scent?

No.

But does it smell absolutely delicious?

Heck yeah! 🙂 Let’s take a look…

Delicious

Now, Indian Coconut Nectar starts off very sugary sweet but quickly smooths out into an uncomplicated deliciously sweet coconut and creamy vanilla cocktail.

Nice!

(By the way, if you LOVE vanilla based scents check out our favorite ones here.)

Warm & Inviting

It’s a simple, fun, warm and inviting scent. Smells like a yummy coconut cookie.

A great everyday perfume for the summer. Perfect for tropical vacations, cruises etc..

Now:

Indian Coconut Nectar projects nicely (about an arm’s length) for about the first hour, leaving a nice scent trail.

It then becomes more subtle and sits closer to the skin, lasting around 2 to 6 hours.

The good news…

This is super affordable so you can keep topping up when needed. Also GREAT for layering.

#11 Heeley Coccobello


Leafy Green Woody Coconut

In case you didn’t know…

“Cocco Bello” is Italian and translates to “Beautiful Coconut”.

Does it deliver on its promise?

In my opinion: YES. 🙂

Let’s take a look…

(By the way, Heeley are a French luxury niche perfume house founded by English perfumer James Heeley, that create unique fragrances using super high quality ingredients).

Fresh Raw Coconut

Coccobello opens with a green palm leaf vibe with a hint of fresh raw coconut sitting in the background.

As it dries down… The coconut starts to shine through and morphs with the leafy greenness joined with a hint of salty ocean breeze and whispers of soft white florals (gardenia).

And as it matures…

Creamy & Slightly Woody

It gets warmer, creamier and slightly woody, with the addition of some sandalwood, cedar and a nice hint of vanilla sweetness.

Nice. 🙂

Now, to be clear:

This is NOT one of those sticky sweet suntan lotion like scents. It’s a salty fresh and green coconut that has a slight hint of sweetness and a warm woody undertone.

Super Realistic

And hats off to Heeley… it smells SUPER realistic and screams quality.

The beautiful part?

This is unisex so you can share it with your significant other and suitable for all ages.

Perfect for the warmer months: spring/summer (needs some warmth for the coconut to bloom).

A great daily summer scent, beaches, vacations, cruises, etc..

Subtle

Coccobello does not scream out for attention. This is an EDP and has subtle projection (within arm’s length) for the first few hours then sits close to the skin, lasting up to 7 plus hours.

Great. 🙂

#10 Montale Intense Tiare


Tiare & Sweet Creamy Vanilla Coconut

Montale are a French niche perfume house known for their powerful long-lasting luxurious fragrances.

By the way, tiaré is a highly fragrant tropical flower that is also used to make monoi oil (by soaking the petals in pure coconut oil).

Does Montale’s Intense Tiare live up to its name?

Let’s find out…

Hint of Sweet Jasmine

Intense Tiare opens with a HUGE blast of tiare flowers mixed with a hint of sweet jasmine, ylang-ylang and a touch of vanilla sweetness in the background.

To be honest…

The opening is quite strong, but it smooths out into something special…

Now, as it starts to settle, the tiare remains center stage… sweet vanilla and milky coconut slowly creep in blending with the florals, joined with a subtle hint of rose.

And eventually…

Smooth, Sweet & Creamy

It all smooths out beautifully into a strong tropical white floral and sweet creamy coconut vanilla scent (it’s sweet, but not sickly sweet).

It has a tropical creamy coconutty suntan lotion vibe.

And it smells GORGEOUS. 🙂

Spring/Summer Go-To

Listed as unisex (but is very feminine) and more suited to the 20-up crowd for warm weather use: spring/summer.

Great for a tropical vacation, cruises, day/night spring-summer go-to.

Intense Tiare is an EDP and jumps off your skin for the first few hours leaving a nice scent trail.

Now, a quick word of warning:

Less is More

Just as the name on the tin says…this really is intense! So, be careful not to overspray, or it will end up wearing YOU 🙂 (it will fill a room).

Less is (definitely) more, 1 to 2 sprays MAX… and you’re set.

The best part?

Super Long Lasting

This is super long lasting! Up to 12 plus hours and it’s still hanging on.

Great. 🙂

Side note: Montale use super lightweight aluminium bottles, and when they are new they feel like they’re not full.

Don’t worry this is normal, simply because the bottle is so light and is also larger than what is needed (this can cause confusion).

#9 Comptoir Sud Pacifique Coco Extreme


Coconut in a Bottle

This is for true coconut lovers.

Now, I will make it super easy for you:

If you don’t want anything complex and want to smell of straight-up milky coconut with no interfering notes.

Get this. 🙂

Comptoir Sud Pacifique are an affordable French niche perfume house that are known for their simplistic gourmand type fragrances.

And no surprises here… With Coco Extreme you get what the name on the tin says:

Sweet Creamy Milky Coconut

Sweet creamy milky coconut with a hint of vanilla and almond. When it dries down on your skin you get a yummy soft sweet warm toasted coconut vibe.

And it smells DELICIOUS.

It’s sweet, but not overly sweet or immature smelling.

But, be careful, your significant other may want to eat you. 🙂

Tropical Vibes

CSP Extreme Coco is listed as unisex but leans feminine and more suited for warmer weather.

Perfect summery daily go-to or for tropical vacations (or whenever you just want tropical vibes).

Now, to be clear:

Inviting

Coco Extreme is a soft subtle inviting scent, so if you’re looking for a projection monster this is not it.

It’s an EDT and projects just under arm’s length for the first few hours then dials back and sits close to the skin with about 4 to 8 plus hours of lasting power.

Bonus: This is also GREAT for layering.

Coconut lovers… Don’t sleep on this.

#8 Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Coconut Fizz


Fresh Coconut Water With a Hint of Fruit

Guerlain are a French luxury perfume house that have been creating fragrances for more than 190 years. Seriously.

(They know a thing or two… 🙂)

Coconut Fizz is part of their Aqua Allegoria collection, where the perfumer showcases one or two raw materials to create a fresh cheerful scent.

And in this case, coconut gets the special Guerlain treatment.

Let’s take a look…

Fresh & Cool

Coconut Fizz opens up with a fresh cool burst of citrusy coconut water mixed with a slightly salty sweet fruity watermelon vibe and a hint of freesia that gives it a faint floral green undertone.

It’s bright, summery, light and refreshing.

And, as it develops on your skin the fruitiness eventually fades and the coconut warms up and becomes creamy with a pinch of sweetness from some milky sandalwood and tonka bean.

Smells Natural

It’s simple but extremely well done and smells natural (and not overly sweet).

Coconut Fizz is perfect for the summer and hot tropical climates. A GREAT vacation/resort scent.

Now to be clear:

Light & Refreshing

If you’re looking for a powerhouse this is (definitely) NOT it. This is a light fresh scent that doesn’t scream out for attention.

Coconut Fizz is an EDT and projects softly (within arm’s length) for the first few hours then sits close to the skin and sticks around for about 3 – 6 plus hours.

Bonus:

The bottle is also gorgeous with its golden mesh which pays tribute to the famous Guerlain Bee Bottle (a bottle that Guerlain specially created for a perfume for Empress Eugénie, wife of Napoleon III).

#7 Profumi Del Forte Vittoria Apuana


Creamy Tropical Banana & Coconut

In case you didn’t know…

Vittoria Apuana is a holiday resort in Italy. The perfumer wanted to create the memories of vacations, with the scent of fresh fruit and coconut mingling with the smells of the sun and the sea.

Did they succeed ?

Heck yeah! 🙂 Let’s take a look…

(By the way, Profumi Del Forte are an Italian niche perfume house that use only the best selected raw materials to create their hand blended fragrances).

Tropical Fruity Vibe

Vittoria Apuana opens up with a tropical sweet fruity vibe with a blast of coconut mixed with a hint of creamy banana and a splash of orange citruses.

Nice.

Now, as it dries down the orange slowly fades into the background and lingers around.

Warm creamy vanilla tip toes in and morphs with the coconut and banana making it sweeter and creamier, joined with subtle hints of tiare flower in the background.

The end result?

Deliciously Sweet

It smells like a deliciously sweet (but not overly sweet) coconut and banana smoothie with a hint of tiare flowers.

It’s a bright, summery, tropical beachy fun scent. HUGE compliment getter.

Vittoria Apuana screams summer and would make a great tropical vacation scent or for whenever you want to have a virtual summer vacation.

Now, to be clear:

Subtle

This doesn’t scream out for attention so if you’re looking for a room filler, this is NOT it.

Vittoria Apuana is an EDP and has soft subtle projection (under arm’s length) for the first few hours, then sits close to the skin, lasting around 4 to 7 plus hours.

Great. 🙂

#6 Rihanna Reb'l Fleur


A Dark Rich Fruity Floral With A Tropical Twist

Let’s be honest…

Most celebrity scents SUCK (and don’t last very long).

NOT this one! 🙂

This is an AMAZING affordable hidden gem, let’s take a look…

Dark Fruity Cocktail

Reb’l Fleur starts off with a strong blast of a dark tangy and sweet fruity cocktail of juicy plum, peach and red berries. Bam!

To be honest… the initial opening is quite strong but it eventually smooths out into something nice…

Now, as starts to settle, the fruits fade and are joined with some florals (tuberose/hibiscus/violet), creamy coconut, a hint of warm patchouli and some powdery vanilla sweetness.

Nice.

Dark, Sweet & Sexy

It’s dark, warm, rich, sophisticated, sweet and sexy!

HUGE compliment getter. And eventually it dries down to a sweet clean musky skin scent.

Versatile

Reb’l Fleur is more suited for the mature 20-up crowd and can be worn all year round except in the high summer heat (becomes overly sweet and annoying).

And more suited for night-time use:

Date nights, going out, casual, bars, etc.. I wouldn’t recommend this for the office as it is quite bold (maybe if sprayed lightly).

Nice Scent Trail

Reb’l Fleur is an EDP and projects nicely for the first few hours (just beyond arm’s length) leaving a nice scent trail, then becomes more subtle and lasts around 4 to 8 plus hours.

A quick word of warning:

Be careful not to overspray. Less is (definitely) more with this scent…

1 – 2 sprays MAX… and you’re good to go (unless you want to fill a room up). 🙂

The beautiful part?

This is super affordable and can be found at a GREAT price, but it smells expensive!

Can you say jackpot?

High Heel Bottle

Side note: the bottle is designed in the shape of a high heel with a twisting black ribbon shape.

By the way, the 100 ml bottle is HUGE so if you’re planning to pop this in your bag, you might want to opt for a smaller bottle size, or you could simply decant it into a small atomizer.

#5 Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Garden


A Tropical Coconut Vanilla Almond Scent

First off…

Don’t let the name of this fragrance and/or the color of the bottle or the carved pink flower cap mislead you.

You would be expecting (understandably) a garden themed rose or floral heavy scent. Not the case.

In fact:

This is a tropical floral coconutty beachy type scent. Maybe they should have called it Dolce Tropical Beach Garden. 🙂

Also, this smells nothing like any of the other previous Dolce releases.

With that said, let’s take a look…

Fresh & Fruity

D&G Dolce Garden opens with a fresh fruity sweetness with a blast of mandarin orange mixed with a hint of white florals (magnolia & neroli) and some sweet creamy coconut in the background.

The mandarin quickly fades allowing the sweet creamy coconut to shine, soon followed with hints of topical florals (frangipani & ylang-ylang).

Nice.

Gives you a tropical beachy Pina Colada vibe… and it smells DELICIOUS.

And as it dries down, warm vanilla and a splash of milky almond join the party, leading it towards almost gourmand territory.

The result?

Rich & Creamy

A sweet rich creamy coconut vanilla almond scent with a hint of floral freshness. It’s sweet, but not overly sugary sweet (or too thick).

Dolce Garden is a youthful fun feminine fragrance and best worn in the warmer months: spring/summer.

Warm Weather Go-To

Great warm weather go-to, days/nights, tropical vacations, casual, date nights, etc..

Now:

Dolce Garden is an EDP and projects about an arm’s length for the first few hours, then starts to sit closer to the skin and lasts around 4 to 8 plus hours.

HUGE compliment getter.

Side note: the bottle is adorable… it comes with a thin black ribbon bow attached and the cap is carved in the shape of a flower.

Nice. 🙂

#4 Creed Virgin Island Water


Tropical Vacation in a Bottle

Coconut, Lime & Sweet Rum

In case you didn’t know…

Creed are a luxury niche perfume house that use super high quality natural ingredients and have been creating fragrances for more than 230 years.

Seriously.

Speaking of… to find out more about Creed and to discover our favorite picks from the house, go here.

Anyway…

Caribbean Adventure

Virgin Island Water is the work of Creed’s sixth generation master perfumer Olivier Creed and his son Erwin, who wanted to capture their Caribbean sailing adventure in a bottle.

Did they succeed? Let’s find out…

Super Refreshing

Virgin Island Water opens with a HUGE blast of freshly squeezed lime mixed with sparkling bergamot/orange citruses, creamy coconut and a splash of boozy rum.

Nice!

The opening smells tropical, SUPER refreshing and natural.

Now, as it settles the lime slowly starts to fade and morphs with the coconut, joined with a pinch of ginger and a faint floral accord (ylang-ylang, hibiscus and jasmine), which give it a creamy sweetness.

And as it develops… the boozy rum vibe amps up with some sugar cane and a hint of soft white musk.

The result?

Pina Colada Vibes

A gorgeous tropical creamy coconut and juicy lime vibe mixed with some sweet boozy rum. Think: Pina Colada minus the pineapple (maybe a Lime Colada 🙂).

The beautiful part:

This is unisex so you can share it with your significant other. Great.

 Virtual Vacation

VIW screams summer and would make a perfect tropical vacation scent.

This is a fun casual scent, great for the beach, laying round the pool, beach bars/clubs, or whenever you just want a virtual vacation that transports you to a tropical island.

Now to be clear:

This is a summer scent and is not designed to scream out for attention or fill a room.

To be honest, you don’t want to be wearing anything overwhelming in the high summer heat that will choke people out.

(Not good 🙂)

Subtle

VIW is an EDP and projects politely (just under arm’s length) for the first few hours then starts to sit closer to the skin, eventually becoming a skin scent

…and depending on the temperature, it may last anywhere from 4 to 7 plus hours.

Bottom line:

If you’re looking for a tropical vacation scent, don’t sleep on this.

#3 Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Eau Fraiche Skinscent


Beach in a Bottle

Now, to be clear:

This is the Eau Fraiche Skinscent version of Bronze Goddess (the original version with the cult following).

Because listen to this…

Estee Lauder later released an EDP (Eau de Parfum) version that was expected to be a stronger, longer lasting version of the same scent…

But, it smells completely different. This causes so much confusion about this fragrance.

Anyway… With that said… Let’s take a look:

Warm Milky Coconut

Bronze Goddess opens up with a burst of fresh citrusy orange and bergamot with some warm milky coconut hiding in the background.

…The citruses quickly fade into the background allowing some soft white florals (tiare, orange blossom, jasmine, magnolia) to creep through with a hint of warm vanilla sweetness and morph with the coconut.

Nice. 🙂

Tropical Flowers

Smells like a luxury creamy coconut suntan lotion complete with the smell of sun kissed skin, baked sand and tropical flowers.

The citruses in the background joined with a hint of lavender keep it fresh, clean and light.

And as it dries down on your skin… you get some amber, myrrh and soft sandalwood sweetness that give it a warm comforting vibe.

By the way:

Elegant

If you’re looking for a thick candy sweet Pina Colada type coconut scent, this is not it. It’s warm and creamy but light and fresh.

Bronze Goddess is an elegant mature scent more suited for the 20-up crowd. This screams summer and needs some warmth to bloom on your skin.

Perfect for daily summer casual use, tropical vacations, cruises, sitting in the sun, near the beach, etc…

Now, to be clear:

Gentle Wafts

As the name suggests this fragrance is an Eau Fraiche Concentration (lighter than EDP & EDT) so don’t expect miracles. 🙂

Bronze Goddess projects about an elbow’s length for the first 1 – 2 hours, then sits closer to the skin giving off gentle wafts, and lasts around 3 – 6 plus hours.

To be honest:

You don’t want to be wearing anything overwhelming in the high heat that could choke people out.

With that, here’s a tip that works great:

For more effect and lasting power layer/combine this with the matching scented Bronze Goddess Shimmering Oil For Hair And Body and Bronze Goddess Cooling Body Gelée.

Great. 🙂

#2 Tom Ford Soleil Blanc


Upscale Coconut

This FiFi award winning perfume (women’s luxury fragrance of the year) is part of the Tom Ford Private Blend collection.

These are the brand’s more exclusive luxury fragrances, that are created in collaboration with world renowned perfumers using higher quality ingredients.

In the words of Mr Tom Ford himself:

'Private Blend is my own personal scent laboratory; where I create special, original fragrances unconstrained by the conventions of mainstream scent-making.' – Tom Ford.Click To Tweet

Speaking of… to see our favorite picks from Tom Ford go here (nearly all of them are unisex).

Now, to be clear:

Soleil Blanc is available in 2 different versions (Soleil Blanc and Eau de Soleil Blanc), and they smell slightly different with different lasting power.

Soleil Blanc Vs Eau de Soleil Blanc

 

  • Soleil Blanc is an EDP (Eau de Parfum) and is richer, denser, creamier and lasts longer than Eau de Soleil Blanc.
  • Eau de Soleil Blanc is an EDT (Eau de Toilette) and is a more affordable (it’s not part of the Private Blend collection) lighter, fresher, citrusy version of Soleil Blanc, but doesn’t last as long.

To be honest:

BOTH are gorgeous …but as this is a best coconut scented perfume list we chose Soleil Blanc, as the coconut note is richer and creamier.

By the way:

Soleil Blanc is French and translates to “White Sun.” A fitting name. 🙂

Let’s take a look…

Soft White Florals

Soleil Blanc starts off with a brief blast of fresh bergamot citrus mixed with a hint of spicy cardamom and some creamy white florals (tuberose with a hint of jasmine).

The citruses quickly fade, and the creamy coconut starts to creep in and smooth out the florals, joined with some ylang-ylang and a touch of pistachio.

And as it develops, some amber and tonka bean eventually join the party.

The result?

Rich, Warm & Creamy

A gorgeous tropical soft white floral and sweet creamy coconut scent with a hint of spice.

It’s rich, warm, creamy and sweet (but not overly sweet). Gives you a luxurious tropical beachy suntan lotion vibe with a subtle salty sea breeze.

Nice!

Soleil Blanc is listed as unisex (but leans feminine) and screams summertime (or whenever you want beach vibes).🙂

Dressed Up… Dressed Down

Perfect for tropical vacations, dressed up, dressed down, cruises, date nights, pool parties, yacht parties, beachside dinners, etc..

'Private Blend is a series of fragrances I love and wear. Ones that never cease to challenge, to stimulate, to delight.' – Tom Ford.Click To Tweet

Now, I should point something out:

Reserved

Soleil Blanc is a reserved fragrance that doesn’t scream out for attention.

It projects just under arm’s length for the first few hours then pulls back and sits close to the skin, eventually becoming a skin scent.

To be honest, you don’t really want to be wearing anything overwhelming in the summer heat that could choke people out.

The good news…

Although this sits close to the skin, being an EDP it can stick around for up to 8 plus hours.

Great. 🙂

The bottle is gorgeous and comes in a nice gold colored box.

Side note: for more effect, you can also pair this up with the matching scented Tom Ford Soleil Blanc shimmering body oil.

#1 Guerlain Terracotta Le Parfum


Tropical White Florals With A Hint of Coconut

Does it deliver on its promise?

Heck yeah! 🙂

Let’s take a look…

Sweet White Florals

Terracotta opens with a blast of beautiful sweet white florals (jasmine & tiare flower) with a hint of bergamot citrus.

Speaking of… if you love jasmine, be sure to check out our favorite jasmine fragrances here.

Now:

As it starts to settle… the tiare flower takes center stage (giving the fragrance a tropical beachy vibe) and is joined with some ylang-ylang and a hint of orange blossom sweetness.

Eventually some coconut along with a hint of vanilla start to tip-toe in to smooth everything out.

The result?

Soft, Sweet & Creamy

A soft sweet creamy tropical white floral with a hint of coconut. Think: summer vacation in a bottle.

Nice. 🙂

It’s calming, beautiful and smells luxurious. HUGE compliment getter.

Blooms in the Heat

More suited for the mature 20-up and the warmer weather: spring/summer (blooms in the heat, bringing the coconut out).

A great summer daily go-to, beach clubs, cruises, tropical vacations, etc..

That said, it’s just too good to be used only in the summer and can be worn all year round for most situations.

Great.

Now, to be clear:

Soft & Subtle

Terracotta Le Parfum (despite the name, it’s actually an EDT concentration), is a soft subtle scent that doesn’t scream out for attention.

If you’re looking for a room filler this is NOT it.

Terracotta projects just under arm’s length for the first few hours, then sits close to the skin, lasting around 4 – 8 plus hours.

Bonus: just like the scent, the bottle is also gorgeous.
