Coconut Craze: Five Scents that Bottle Up Summer Perfectly5 min read
Forever trying to bottle up summer? Because, same here. Coconut-scented fragrances are a good start, triggering memories of laying out on a towel, listening to the waves crash — in other words, pure bliss. Now pair coconut with some interesting accords and you’ve got fragrances that are modern, fun, and appropriate for extending that summer feeling. Winter isn’t coming until we say it is.
The Secret Ingredient: South Sea Pearls
Drawing inspiration from the beauty of Bali’s deep-sea pearls, this heady floral bouquet gets mixed with coconut and lively spices for an exotic scent blend that you’ll wear again, and again and again…
The Secret Ingredient(s): Driftwood + Sea Salt
We dare you to sniff this and not reach for your fave bikini. Sea salt is coconut’s sidekick, while sandalwood, ambergris and seaweed add a warm, skin-like element.
The Secret Ingredient: Magnolia
Badgley Mischka’s first foray into the world of fragrance is just what you’d expect from the designer duo: Luxurious, nostalgic and utterly indulgent. Imagine the most fragrant magnolia garden in spring, drenched in coconut water and rain. There you have Badgley Mischka, a scent that’s unabashedly floral, subtly sweet, and truly confident.
The Secret Ingredient: Fig
It’s the kind of fragrance that puts a smile on your face: Vanilla and sugar reign supreme, while fig adds a tang that keeps the scent from veering too saccharine. Milk adds unexpected spin to coconut’s vibrant base.
The Secret Ingredient(s): Sandalwood + Musk
Here’s what we call a sexy fragrance. Sandalwood, vanilla and musk revolve around coconut for a breezy, nuanced, and intoxicating finish with a honeyed veil that lingers on your skin. It’s the way you want to smell after a relaxing day by the ocean — or at the office when the mercury starts to a nosedive.
