Perfumes that smell of coconut?

I usually buy Estee lauder's Bronze goddess for summer but as well as changing the bottle they seem to have reformulated it too-no longer smells coconutty-boo!

I like very strong long lasting perfumes-budget up to £50. Any ideas for a nice summer perfume with coconut please?

Versace Crystal Noir? Very coconut oily (I love it, but it is not subtle)

SJP NYC! I bought some from Amazon on a Lightning Deal and it's amazingly coconutty smile

Can't get more coconutty than the Body Shop's Coconut Oil perfume. I used to wear it a lot. And Vanilla. I must have smelled like a cake. Still nice smells though.

The most coconutty you can get is this:

I always get compliments when I wear it, sometimes mixed with their Vanilla Extreme.

There's one I like from Avon (not everyone's taste I know), called Tahitian Holiday. Very coconutty!

If you use body shop body butter coconut - you will smell coconut try all day smile

I love coconutty perfumes too and am always looking for a new one! But BG is my favourite.

EL don't market the original BG all year round and for the past two years have brough out a "variation" on BG which doesn't smell at all of coconut but you should still be able to buy the original.

My next try is the one Hazel linked to.

I liked Virgin Island Water by Creed but it just wasn't coconutty enough - too limey.

Have they changed Bronze Goddess since last year?

No, no and thrice bloody no.

Laura Murcier coconut & almond.

I came on to recommend Bronze Goddess! I adore it and hate coconut usually. Are you sure they've released it yet? It's normally not available til later in the year iirc.

Can you still get Bali Dream by Estée Lauder? That's a very grown up coconut, not too sweet smelling.

Virgin Island Water by Creed is essence of summer holidays in a bottle, I adore it, just the right amount of coconut for me.
Remember the Hawaiian Tropic sun tan range? Love that too

The bad reviews of Bronze Goddess were on estee lauders own site. Also they don't seem to have brought out a flanker this year-last years was capri I think? It was too orangey for me and that's what the reviews said of the new one. I cant stand fruity perfumes.

I just had another look at the website and there is definitely no coconut or amber listed in the ingredients. But there is in the boy oil version so I might go with that.

I would use a complimentary perfume and then body shop coconut perfume oil on your neck to add spice to it.
