Hi there Posse! Back in May 2013 we did the ScentSation Bus Tour through LA. One of our stops was at beauty Habit where Paula and her amazing crew looked after us so amazingly well. Paula’s VERY sexy husband even brought his restaurant truck to feed us. It was an incredible day and one of my enduring memories of the day was meeting and chatting to Sarah Horowitz at Beauty Habit, falling for and subsequently buying one of her beautiful fragrances. If you’re missing summer and need a pure shot of tropical loveliness then read on…

Beauty Habit gives these featured accords:

Base: Tonka Bean, Vanilla, Egyptian Musk
Perfect Coconut Milk opens surprisingly crisp and green, it feels like citrus, and backed by the warm soft glow of almond and white flowers but not a BWF. The Sarah Horowitz coconut is not as pronounced as you’d think it would be today but there is a creaminess that feels like coconut cream as you put it into a curry and further in to the ride a toasted desiccated coconut like used to be on our birthday cakes as kids.
Interestingly, when I wear Perfect Coconut Milk during the course of a normal day, rather than sitting in my office and parsing the ride, the whole fragrance seems much more coconut. Last night while I was lying in bed and wearing it to drift off to sleep it was uber coconut. Today it seems much less so. Today it feels like a vanilla scent with bells & whistles.

So I wore Perfect Coconut Milk again today while I ran around doing errands and chores. It was lushly tropical and huffed up out of my top on and off all day, there were some really delightful moments of pure coconutty goodness and now that the vanilla has made itself the reigning star of the fragrance in my olfactory memory i think that’s the way it’s going to stay. Lasting power is excellent and I still had musky/vanillic traces at the end of the day that were very comfortable.
If you want a sweet (in a vanilla, not confectionery way) tropical fragrance that is clear and uncloying but warm as a hug I think Perfect Coconut Milk an excellent choice. First hour or so is very fragrant and then it fades in and out till you’re left with a soft focus wash till fade.
