I’ve been to a slew of various Caribbean islands and there’s always at least one guy on some street corner, fair, or flea market that has some sort of huge ass Silent Hill-like knife that’s splicing coconuts open and sticking a straw in ’em to drink. It’s fascinating to watch because in most cases it’s a little old man who’s popping these things!
Yeah well, that’s my story of the day! Speaking of coconuts!
Bath and Body Works takes on everyone’s favorite tropical treat for the Summer with their new range Signature Coconut Collection. That collection features fragrance mists, lotions, potions, and even lipgloss in three new scents with a heavy base note of, why yes, you guessed it, coconut baby!
If you’re not a fond fan of coconut…stay away! These are hardcore coconut blends and the note comes through very clearly here! I picked up the fragrance mists only as I’m not too fond a fan of Bath and Body Works moisturizers however I do suggest layering whenever possible as the mists in recent years are pretty weak and don’t linger too long unless you’re willing to mist yourself madly with an entire bottle!
Bath & Body Works Signature Coconut Mango is a blend of coconut and mango. It has a certain sweetness thanks to the mango but dries down to a strong coconut note with a hint of juiciness.
Bath & Body Works Signature Coconut Passionfruit was surprisingly my least favorite. I thought this would be sweet but…it kinda smells like a stale coconut cookie or something? It has this weird crunchy element that I’m having a hard time putting my nose too. You get a true coconut going on here but the underlay of the passionfruit isn’t exactly what I envisioned when I originally heard about it!
And finally my favorite of the three, Bath and Body Works Signature Coconut Pineapple is the traditional mix of coconut with juicy pineapple thrown in. This blend actually isn’t overpowered by the coconut and you can get a nice underlay of the pineapple. It’s probably the only blend that isn’t dominated by coconut!
Overall, they are nice Summery fragrances and will make a nice fragrance pick for the beach, boardwalk, or pool! But like I said, if you’re really not one for coconut these might prove a bit TOO much!
Did you smell ’em?
