CocoaPink Sanibel Island
Soft Tahitian vanilla, coconut milk, coconut pulp, clear aqua ocean water deepened with a cool ozone accord.
There are certain scents that carry strong sentimental value, either due to the name or how they smell. This scent is very sentimental to me for the name. Sanibel Island is a small, beautiful, sleepy island just off the coast of Florida. When I was a little kid, it was one of my family’s go-to vacation places when we didn’t want to leave the state. For that reason, I had to try this scent.
In the bottle: I’m getting an absolutely stunning coconut note. It’s not too sweet or sugary; it smells very much like coconut water. I love all things coconut, but I don’t want a coconut single note scent.
On the skin: The coconut is still the most prominent note, but now it is backed up by some seawater that cuts the sweetness slightly with the salt. It’s rounded out by the ozone note, which makes it very different from most other coconut perfumes that I’ve tried. I feel like the ozone also adds something surprisingly alluring to this scent. In all, this smells like drinking coconut water on the beach just before a big storm. It’s more atmospheric than it is gourmand. It honestly does remind me of my vacations to Sanibel Island. I’m a fan.
TL;DR: Gorgeous coconut with saltwater and ozone. Alluring and evocative. 4.5/5.
