This was a little too vanilla and not enough floral for my taste. My daughter loved it though.
I was NOT A FAN it’s old and moldy not quite moth balls but close
Do people really like this?
It smells like bathroom cleaner to me!
Love the long lasting scent... worth it!
Too Sweet For Me; Perfect For My Teenager
It wasn't a bad smell, but it was definitely too sweet of a smell for me. In fact, I felt like I was being overpowered by it. It smelled good on my teenage daughter, though. She absolutely loves it.
Hawaii in a bottle
Beautiful fragrance very reminiscent of Hawaii. Floral with touches of vanilla. Loved the scent just lacking staying power.
Comptoir Sud acfique Aloha Tiare
Love the scent, reminds me of an exotic garden
Just like walking on the beach of Hawaii with the smells of the flowers and lotion smells. Loved that it was not to floral, great summer scent and reminiscing of being on the beach.
Thought I would love it
I thought this would be perfect for me. I love scents that takes you away. But this takes me away to somewhere I would not want to be. Too overwhelming. I feel like people can smell me before I even get in the room. Which is not what I'm going for.
Not what I expected
Slightly bitter smell
This perfume smells like the beach and flowers in a bottle. It's so nice! It's the perfect summer/spring fragrance! I love it!
Sweet n creamy
I got this today and I realy like the sweet creamy fragrance. I will be honest its like a cherry chapstick sent but I reallly like it especialy for summer.
I liked this scent. I jus was looking for more of a coconut smell. It kinda reminds me of a fabric softner not a perfume.
Smells like cheap air freshener
I was really hoping that this would smell like advertised. Unfortunately, it smells like a cheap Air freshener or like hotel shampoo. It’s not replacing but it’s not something I would wear either.
I am in love with this fragrance! A transformative experience to a tropical oasis. If you love sweet, tropical scents, this is for you. My only complaint is that it doesn’t last that long.
This is my new personal fave!
I was a little skeptical ordering a fragrance I've never sampled just by the aroma notes, but, I have to say I am absolutely thrilled with this fragrance. The Manoi/TIare notes remind me of the time I've spent on the Hawaiian Islands. This is a soft fragrance that lasts. I currently wear it every day. If I could rate this a 10, I would.
Day at the pool
I thought this would smell summery and tropical, but it really just smells like sunscreen. Every time i wore this I kept forgetting I had it on and wondering why i kept smelling sunscreen. Not a big fan
A little too sweet
It's certainly not a terrible scent but it was a little too sweet for me. The scent is a tad over whelming alone; it layers nicely with other fragrances though!
Pretty scent, not for me
I like this scent, but it’s a bit overpowering when you first spray it. It reminds me a bit of pot pouri, and it a little too rich and heavy for my liking. It smells really luxurious and very high quality - just not for me.
This perfume smells like a trip to a magical tropical paradise. Ever see someone sniffing themselves because they are checking their smell? That’s me with this perfume, except it’s because I love how this smells 🖤
I dont really wear perfumes because I work with children but this is a nice soft scent that isn't overwhelming. I look forward to trying it now that it's really warm outside
Vacation in a bottle
My favorite so far. Close your eyes and you’re on a tropical beach!
I like it
It's light and fruity smelling. Very different but I like it!
Did not like it
Overpowering gardina or something it was not pleasant.
Comptoir Sud Pacifique Aloha Tiare
Tropical floral, but with a strong sweet and creamy quality which I didn't enjoy.
It wasn't what i was expecting. The scent lasts, but all I smell is Gardenia.
Long lasting. Very sweet.
Nope not for me.
I was excited to try this one thinking it would be similar to Estee’s Bronze Goddess, maybe more of a floral but it brought back memories of Jungle Gardenia. It’s in your face Jungle Gardenia, and If that’s your thing you’re going to love it.
Favorite so far!!
Reminds me of summer and absolutely love it!!
This stank. It was loud and awful. Yuk! Has an old hair/moldy clothing understink.
Flirty summer fragrance
Smells beachy, like sweet sunscreen. I like it
I absolutely love this scent! It’s rather sweet and reminiscent of the beach
Smells like the islands
The moment I sprayed this it took me back to Hawaii. I'd give it 5 stars but it doesn't last all that long. Very tropical floral smell.
So pretty and light. Its just perfect for spring and soft & light enough to wear in close quarters, like in an office. It lasts longer if you spray it on your clothes, too.
I am just so absolutely in love with this perfume. It is so light, flowering, and sweet. I can wear it anytime. I will definitely buy a full bottle of this.
i thought i would have liked this
with the list of ingredients and notes i was sure this was going to be lovely. but its really just too sugary, and smells like a poorly made daiquiri. it was really bad.
Sorry it was not my thing, in the smelling good department it was strong and did not last to long disapointing
Transports You to a Beach Bathed in Flowers
I wanted a different kind of tropical scent when I popped this in my queue. I normally love tropical pina colada kind of smells, and with the coconut you definitely get a hint of that, but I wanted something more exotic and floral and boy does this perfume hit the mark perfectly. I absolutely love this scent. It's soft, fresh and floral without smelling like old granny perfume. As soon as I spray it on, I feel transported to a glorious vacation. And the staying power is phenomenal. I spray it on at 9 a.m., and it's still wafting around me around 6 p.m. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Originally I had been a little antsy about choosing this fragrance, because I wasn't sure about the ylang ylang. That's just not normally a smell I like. However, I really don't smell it in this blend. There might be a hint of it, but it's not something stands out. Mostly it's a vanilla, floral, coconut scent. Highly recommend if you're looking for a floral beach perfume.
I love it, it makes me feel like I'm sitting on the beach, even in the cold.
Essence of the Tropics
Love the combination of sweet and floral. This scent is good for when you’re wanting to vacation in the tropics, but have to take a staycation instead.
Brings you to Hawaii
If you like sunscreen-scented style perfumes like the Escada line, you will like this perfume. It is strictly floral, but all tropical floral- like you are sitting in a high end beach resort watching beautiful people walking by slathered in expensive sunscreen while sipping a pina colada wearing a wide-brimmed hat. A little goes a long way- this perfume has a strong scent and lasts a while. I can see how people wouldn't like it because of the strength - my husband hated it initially - The top notes scream, but as it wore on it earned his approval.
Not for me
Sprayed it on my hand and my husband and I did not like it. Too strong. And it didn’t smell like the notes stated were accurate except for the floral ones. Didn’t smell any vanilla or coconut at all.
I can't believe the smell of this perfume. So exotic and vacation-y. Makes me think of sitting on the beach in Maui soaking up the sun! A little dab will do you because if you overdo it, it's waaaaaayyyy too strong. I do love the way it smells though and it lasts pretty much all day.
Way too strong
Dies not smell like the description, overwhelming almost sour smell. Really disappointed with this one
smells so artificial. How did I get this on my list? I will stick to my preferences which are fruity and sweet. This is sweet but heady. Strong. Honeysuckle?
Toothaching-ly sweet Tiare
If you aren't familiar with Tiare or don't like that note, you are going to have a bad time with this fragrance. It is over-the-top sweet and very in-your-face with the Tiare note. The coconut lends it a nougat-y vibe, but everything in this is sweet sweet sweet. I like it, but I needed a jolt of the tropics in the dreariness of February, this reminds me of Lalicious' Tiare products, which remind me of vacation.
I am really unsure about this scent. The smell is odd.
I wanted to love this, and while I do like it the coconut scent is just overpowering to me. I'll still wear it on summer days, but it's not quite what I was hoping for.
Such a beautiful scent
The first spray I was iffy, but then I realized I kept reaching for my wrist to take a whiff over and over again. It's a scent that develops after it settles into a slightly fruity, buttery, and soft aroma. I love this scent, and I will for sure add to my que again. It's sweet, and sexy, perfect for summer days.
Sweet and Tart
Nothing like the description..........reminds me of a Sweet Tart. Bolder than I thought it would be.
Not my taste
I just dont like it
Summer in a Bottle
I wore this perfume for a lot of summer 2017, usually at night. I was not fond of it when I first smelled it, but after wearing it once or twice, it really grew on me! It smells like a summer vacation, but it does not have an artificial vanilla and coconut scent to it at all. I also received so many compliments on this and it lasted for such a long time!
Hawaii in a Bottle
This scent is equal parts floral and fruity. It is the closest to the beach on Hawaii as you can get. While the floral notes are the first thing you notice, it is then followed by coconut/vanilla/pineapple(?). The scents work well together and are not overwhelming. Easily a daily wearer.
Three of my absolute favorite scents (frangipani, tiare flower & coconut) but this just can't pull it off. The addition of vanilla to an already naturally overly-sweet frangipani makes it nausea inducing and unfortunately the scent lasts all day. Where the tiare flower should have calmed down the stronger scents, it is barely detectable, drowned out by the other notes in the fragrance.
Very strong floral scent. Thought it would be perfect for my vacation but really didn't like it.
I absolutely love the flower that this fragrance is based on but I just can’t wear it all day. Too much of a good thing.
It has too much of a musk for my taste, the first spray was fine but kinda grits on the senses and I got a migraine after a few hours! Won’t be getting again!
This fragrance is too sweet for my taste. But Comptoir Sud Pacifique Vanille Coco is one of my all-time favorite scents. It's heavy on the vanilla. Could use some more of the coconut, but it smells like a vacation! Try that one instead.
Not what I expected, smells very clean vaguely reminds me of fresh laundry.
Not my favorite but still a good everyday wear. More chemical smell than flowers.
I would not recommend this fragrance to others. It does not smell as it was described. I can no wear it because it smells awful.
I personally hated it, when I first received it I was like "ok, I can work with this" and sprayed it on before I left for work...5 hours later it is still hitting my nose and I really don't think this mingles well with my body. I can't even explain the scent...kind of artificial vacation? That being said, my coworker could smell it and LOVED it, since I was not going to use it I gave it to her and it does smell pleasant when she put it on.. Me personally? 1 star...but I gave it 3 since it obviously works on some people (I tend to go for warm sweet scents Like Laura Mercier Vanille Gourmande OR sultry scents like Black Opium)
Thought I was gonna like this by the description - there all my fav notes but this scent is so terrible. I can't even smell it in the bottle nevermind on me which I tried and It smelled worse
I received this perfume by error. I did not order it. I had my choice already in place (in my queue) so no idea why they sent this. I did try it but OMG!! It is terrible! It smelled very strong, extremely bad. It smells like a combination of clove chewing gum and the old fashioned bubble gum that used to come with a little cartoon. Horrible!!! I am waiting to hear back from Scentbird as to when I will get the perfume I chose. I offered to return this one. I have no desire to keep it, no desire to use it. If you enjoy smelling like old, stale bubblegum and that weird scent you sometimes get from the stuff used at the dentist...fine. As for me, definitely not!
I love this fragrance! After reading the description I was so excited to get it. I was not disappointed. Reminds me of my days in Hawaii and the beach! So, so happy!
Disappointed I really didn't like it
Yuck! Didn't like it at all. It doesn't remind of a tropical vacation, just old lady smell.
I was really looking forward to this scent reminding me of my recent Hawaiian vacation. It's overpowering. I don't want to mention what I feel it smells like. It's not scent birds fault but the description needs to something like this one can have the strength of eau du cologne.
either the frangipani or ylang-ylang KiLL this otherwise great scent and TOO BAD
I wanted to like this... honest, I did. On paper it was perfect. Out of the bottle, not so much. This scent is WAY too sweet. It does have the hint of coconut, but because it is so sweet, it smells more like cotton candy or something. I couldn't pickup on the flower scents at all. :(
I hate it, instant headache! It's like that strong old lady perfume that makes you nauseous.
Definitely a sweet smelling scent. Seemed a bit overwhelming at first, but gets better as it wears off. Definitely a summer scent.
I thought it would be a warmer, more vanilla, coconut scent- it's not. It's definitely not one of my favorites- maybe if I lived on a tropical island...
This is a very summery scent! Perfect for vacation. Not my favorite, but do like the undertones! My only problem with it is I wouldn't wear this scent unless I was feeling islandy
I did not like the scent at all! It was too overwhelming for me.
Too strong and overly sweet. Almost sickeningly so. Had to layer with other things to use it.
Love the fragrance, it was like a beach vacation in a bottle. It is very light and fresh, like sweet breeze blowing through your hair.
I am thoroughly impressed by the smell of this perfume. I purchased it with no idea of what it smelled like, received my sample from scentbird in the mail, I sprayed some on my hand for my spouse to smell and he immediately said, "MMMMMMM!!" I know that when he likes a smell, it's definitely a good thing. He typically dislikes perfume, but prefers oils. He then said, "If you don't want it, I'll take it." After that I smelled my hand and I thought MMMMMMM lol this perfume smells so yummy. The type of smell I am looking for, one that smells tropical, as well as incense-y. I am in love. I can't wait to wear it to work. I may just buy the full bottle for next Summer.
This was super strong at first and after that the smell wasnt pleasant. Not for me
I did not like this scent at all. It's got a very "old laddish" smell to it. The first time I smelled it, I didn't think it was bad, but then I wore it and just hated it. I would put this on around 630 am and by 9 it was completely gone. Wouldn't recommend. Wish this hadn't been my very first scent, because it's a little off putting.
Better as an air freshener than a perfume. Nice scent but I didn't like to wear it.
I love this one. I have been looking for a new summer/beach perfume and this one is perfect.
I thought I'd love this scent but unfortunately, after just one spray, I instantly got a headache. I went back later just to smell the bottle, and I just can't do it. I can't put my finger on it, but one of the notes is beyond overpowering. I'm super bummed because I love the Vanille Extreme in this brand.
Nooope not for me unfortunately. Smells great but it would be one of those scents that would make me feel ill after a while.
This smells like a Caribbean vacation. I absolutely love it!
My first impression of this perfume is that it smells like a vacation great for summer weather floral but kind of tropical scented.
AMAZING FLORAL SCENT!!!!! If you LOVE florals, like I do, this is BEAUTIFUL. It's a very tropical Hawaiian/Islandy scent. You can smell the Tiare Flower for sure. Possibly a honeysuckle type smell also. Definitely a summer sent.
Aloha Tiare is one of my favorite hot weather perfumes. To me, nothing smells as sexy as tiare (Hawaiian gardenia, basically) in the summer. And Aloha Tiare works for daytime and even work environments if you spritz lightly, but I like it best worn generously on a date night on a warm evening.
It wasn't what I was expecting or hoping for. If you like a very floral scent, this is perfect for you, but I was hoping for something with more coconut and maybe just a very tiny hint of floral. The scent also doesn't last very long at all, which in this case was a good thing for me.
Not exactly my cup of tea. Doesn't last long and its too strong for my liking.
Smells like the beach!!! Absolutely love this scent. Complements galore with this one.
Did not like this one! I had high hopes for a more coconut / vanilla smell but its way to sweet for me!
This fragrance isn't my favorite but it's not bad. It's definitely a tropical floral fragrance that starts out a bit strong but dries down softer. I wish you could actually smell the coconut but you can't.
It does smell tropical but it's more floral than coconut smell. It almost smells like a powder.
First of all i would totally disagree that this perfume smells cheap. It smells like a high quality perfume. The problem is this is not their coconut perfume. They have another one that smells of coconut. This is tropical flower smell. Anyone who has bought flower oils in Hawaii would agree. If you do not like this perfume then you are probably just not a fan of white flowers. They are strong and can be sweet and musky. This smells like Hawaiin tuberose flower to me. I love it. It reminds me of an oil i got in Kauai at the Alerton gardens.
I am in the middle on this one, it smells OK but the coconut scent is off, not true. I will not be getting this again.
I did not like this and it does not smell like coconut at all, I got an instant migraine after spraying it
Smells like a tropical vacation lobed this one.
Smelled like old lady. Avon quality.
I do not like it! It has an old lady smell to it. It was definitely not what I thought it would be! 😞
Not sure what I was hoping for, Not my favorite but better than most Tiare flower fragrances I have had in the past. Nothing wrong with the perfume, just White flowers never agree with me.
Was hoping this was more of a summer sweet smell . Not my fav.
I love this it smells like paradise in a bottle reminds me of vacation
Hate it, sprayed it on and wanted to go shower again to get it off. Doesn't smell anything like vanilla or coconut. I don't know what the other main notes smell like, but I'll be watching for them in other scents. The other scents by this brand with the vanill and coconut are good. Simple but good.
Don't know how to explain the scent but do not like this at all. It honestly reminds me of the smell of a swisher
I'm going to have to say it's just "ok". Since I have it I'll wear it but not something I would go out of my way to purchase.
Long lasting! Reminds me of summer
I was excited to try this thinking it would be very tropical but it smells like something that my grandmother would wear and I really didn't want to have to say that. It's just too strong and overpowering.
Perfect summer scent !! Reminded me of the beach and coconut tanning oil!
Kinda strong on the coconut, not much tiare happening. Doesn't last long and is too sweet for me.
Smells real nice, but not super memorable
I like it, but not loving it. Good scent for Summer or Beach time.
Not at all what I expected. I expected tropical and coconut scented, and instead what it smells like is something my great-grandmother would've worn. The smell was not pleasant at all and doesn't wash off easily either. I'm only giving it a one heart rating because I have to. This perfume is simply awful.
this had a good base but was more musky than i imagined. like my grandmas perfume with cocunut.
Its very strong when you first put it on. Also has a very warm scent, like if vanilla and tropical flowers had a baby, it would be this!
Wasn't impressed. Smells like one of those Hawaiian Glade plug-ins. I don't want to smell like an air freshener.
It smells amazing in the bottle but it smells completely different once it is sprayed.
I did not like this at all! Hard to describe the scent. I didn't smell any coconut or anything tropical. It smells like an old perfume that has gone bad.
Love love love lots of love for this perfume
Not a fan of this. Hard to describe the scent but not what I like.
LOVE LOVE Gina scent! Tropical and light. And lasted almost all day at work!
This smells just like Maui!! A romantic tropical scent that lasts though out the day. If I apply in the morning I like to add a bit more before I head out for the evening, even though my husband says he can still smell it. Every time I wear it I feel like am on Vacation.
Lovely.... A "different" kind of tropical scent
I was looking for something that was reminiscent of the delicious smelling tiare flowers I encountered in Bora Bora. This brought me right back! It has a sweetness to it that compliments the flowery notes. I mixed this with Maison Martin Margiela's Beach Walk - gorgeous and perfect for the beach!!
Love this fragrance!!! It smells like tropical paradise!!! Totally obsessed!! Very sweet and sexy!!
I did not get the "aloha" vibe AT ALL! There were no notes of coconut. It smells like a cheap drug store perfume you would find in your grandmother's cabinet. Not to mention that it is so strong that it made me sick, literally.
It is hard to describe why but I didn't care for the fragrance.
I'm obsessed with this fragrance it's warm sweet tropical and sexy love love love!!! It melts into the skin!!
This perfume was too sweet for me.
I LOVE tiare and enjoy this scent. It's like a 1970s suntan lotion for serious grown-ups. It's right up my alley and I will happily wear it, but I find it just a little too sweet.
I love this smell. A lot of people mentioned they wanted more coconut, but I think it is a perfect combination of coconut and floral. Fragipani (Plumeria) gives it a floral smell, while the nutty/vanilla undertones keep it grounded. Its not a crisp beachy smell, its more like a warm tropical tan smell.
It's ok. Does have a beachy smell
Awful cheap smell. I highly regret wasting a month on this. I should of known better
Love this scent, warm with a spicy dry down. I would have given it a 5 if it lasted longer.
I've had a bottle of this before and loved it. This is the quintessential summer fragrance that is reminiscent of beaches, tropical flora, and sun warmed skin. It's a vacation in a bottle.
This is a nice scent but after a few hours of it, it was really sweet and I didn't care for it much. Could not smell the coconut much. It is a sweet floral scent.... so if you do not like that, steer away from this.
It smells exactly like summer.. like you spent the day in the sun. I'm still getting use to it, but my boyfriend absolutely loves it.
Sickeningly sweet. Like another reviewer said it caused an instant headache.
Very floral. Pretty and I think would do well for a day out in the botanical gardens. A mature smell I would say.
A very summery floral fragrance. The coconut is not detectable until it has a chance to dry down for a little bit. Probably my least favorite CSP fragrance, as I tend to prefer the more gourmand scents. I think this will have to grow on me a little bit more...
not what I was hoping for- remember the 80's scent (sand and sable) VERY similar
Didn't like this one. To me it smelled like a cheap perfume.
Really not what I expected. Though, I've never been to Hawaii. Was hoping I'd pick up more of the coconut scent.
Smells amazing! reminds me of walking through the botanical gardens in Hawaii! Stronger on the gardenia with a warm vanilla mix
Unfortunately not the scent I hoped for ... Very peppery, not flowery at all
im in love with this perfume, it takes me to hawaii every spray :)
This was not one of my Favs, it smells a lot more mature then i thought. It does smell sweet but it just has a little of an odd scent to it.
Sniffing this from the bottle, it is lovely, but once I spray it on, it is SUPER STRONG! I get a headache nearly immediately (and that doesn't happen to me with any other perfumes). Maybe it's my body chemistry, but this is a definite no for me.
Such a beautiful, tropical perfume. The scent lasts. One not to be missed!
This is a nice summer and possible spring scent. It smells like grape coolaid to me though.
I am now obsessed with this scent! It's a very beautiful tropical scent. It puts me in the mind of being on a beach with a Pina Colada on a warm summer day! It lasts long and I will definitely be getting a full bottle to put aside for when it gets warmer out!
