The beginning of every month, I so look forward to getting my Olfactif subscription box! I love perfume, and niche perfumes have always had a special place in my heart.
The theme of this months box, which contains a trio of spray vials, is “On Holiday.”
The first scent I tested is Perfect Coconut Milk by Sarah Horowitz Parfums.
The notes are coconut, almond, orange blossom, gardenia, tonka bean, vanilla and Egyptian musk.
I was pretty sure I was going to love this scent!
I know you’re dying to read what I thought about Perfect Coconut Milk….
It opens with a sultry and warm boozy coconut. This is straight up sexy coconut, no fresh green coconut here!
There is a gardenia peeking around the coconut, not taking over as gardenia sometimes does…
it’s just blooming somewhere in the distance. The almond lends a rich, lickable quality to the perfume. I smell the orange blossom, but it’s very light and barely there. I think the gardenia and almond are preventing the perfume from becoming too foody. Oh, my….this beauty is SO well blended!!
I smell the vanilla after a few minutes. It’s a rich boozy vanilla, which I assume is the tonka bean coming into play as well. I’m left with an amazingly well blended scent, a gourmand that isn’t too rich for summer. It lasts for about 5 hours on my skin.
If I had to describe the scent in another way, I would say that it reminds me of a gourmet truffle! Coconut cream in the center, with an essence of something floral, covered with vanilla almond flavored white chocolate and a drizzle of dark chocolate with a hint of orange liqueur.
This is one sexy, luscious scent! If you like foody scents, you might want to give this work of art a try. I’d love to hear some of your favorite scents in the comments below!
