Now that warm weather has finally arrived in the city, it’s time to shake things up a bit. Why not go nuts for coconut in June? Spritz on one of these two new fragrances and– before you know it–you’ll envision warm sand between your toes and an umbrella drink in your hand.
Sure to be a hit this season is Untitled #2, the newest limited edition perfume from LuckyScent.com’s “Untitled” fragrance collection. Perfumer Tristan Brando
collaborated with Luckyscent to create this one-of-a-kind vacation in a bottle. Although the main ingredient is coconut, this fragrance goes beyond anything
resembling a pina colada. Top notes of fresh green coconut give way to black coconut milk, exotic vanilla and white island heliotropic blossoms; Sicilian tangelo zest gives it a tangy kick while a light driftwood musk balances out the
scent. The result is simply delicious. Find Untitled #2 online at www.LuckyScent.com — but hurry, because this limited edition will be gone before your tan fades.
Taking a different twist on coconut altogether is Cococabana. This new fragrance from Parfums de Nicolai has notes of coconut, bitter oranges, ylang-ylang, tuberose, cedar wood and palm. The woodsy overtones of the scent lend it a more masculine and sophisticated feel than other coconut fragrances. It’s a startling combination in that it truly smells like nothing else.
