Looking for the perfect summer scent? Trust me, coconut perfumes are the ultimate choice.
Forget about the typical association of coconut with lotions and sunscreen; coconut perfumes come on a broad spectrum, from sweet to fruity.
You can’t even imagine the insane collection of perfumes on my vanity—it’s a lot. But let me tell you, out of all of them, my beach travel scents are hands down the absolute best.
It’s crazy how fragrances serve as souvenirs, taking us back to those remarkable moments whenever I catch a whiff of their notes. It’s been months since I traveled to another country, and when I spritz my Prada Paradoxe perfume, I am transported back.
At first, I thought it was weird that I get such sensation. But I’m clearly I’m not alone on this. I’ve read a couple of articles about people who feel the same way about getting different scents on their travels.
During an interview with Elle, the founder of Milèo and former in-house beauty and fragrance expert at Chanel opened up about his personal fragrance preferences while traveling to tropical destinations. “When I think of vacationing in the tropics, I always look for a fragrance that finds the perfect balance between something fresh and something sweet,” says Milèo
“One that will also hold up well to the heat and humidity—you’re probably gonna sweat, but that doesn’t mean you want to stink. The fragrance needs to be strong enough to banish BO and still remain breezy fresh throughout the beach bumming vacay.”
Without a doubt, coconut fragrances are ideal when the sun is shining.
Even if you’re not into strong coconut scents, there’s something for everyone on this list of the best tropical perfumes. From intense to subtle, just keep scrolling and find your perfect match.
