Summer is here and it’s the time when we reach for our most exotic florals. This is the place to give and look for recommendations for perfumes that conjure up long days at the beach and mellow evenings under the stars.
Which tropical perfume is your favorite?
What kind of perfumes say “tropical” to you?
Are you a fan of coconut, tuberose & co?
It was only last summer that I really started to appreciated the beauty of a heady, enveloping, warm tropical floral. I am a famously wimpy perfume lover, so this category had me plain scared. Receiving compliments left and right when testing such scents had me convinced though (not really, I only use the compliments as proof and validation for wearing whatever I please ;)). When the sun is out and especially in the summer evenings such a perfume is magical. Here are my favorites:
The newest tropical floral I’ve discovered is Arquiste Flor y Canto, a gorgeous tuberose scent. Tried and true faves are Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess, Montale Intense Tiaré, Ormonde Jayne Frangipani, Malle Carnal Flower, Nasomatto Nuda, Parfums MDCI Peche Cardinal, Estée Lauder Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia and Yosh Ginger Ciao.
For pure, non-sweet coconut indulgence without the florals try Honoré des Pres Love Coco.
