Review: Yves Rocher Malaysian Coconut Eau de Toilette10:07
If you love anything coconut like I do, then this is a must have product for you. This smell will bring you summer anywhere anytime. It smells like coconut should.
I was introduced to this smell often times by my fellow beauty bloggers and I think even smelled it once in the store, but didn't really like it. Until I actually sprayed it on me and met heaven. Coconut heaven. I bought it immediately.
It costs only 9€ for 100 ml. Yes, it's a eau de toilette so it's not as strong as a perfume and the scents lingers away quicker.
It comes in a simple glass bottle with brown top,which resembles the color of coconut.
Spray pump produces a very fine mist.
I love the fact that the liquid is muted white, which almost makes you feel like there's coconut milk in it.
It smells truly like a coconut should smell. Forget the nasty coconut water smell, which by the way I hate (and that's an understatement). This will make you crave Bounty and take you to the paradise beach. It's truly one of a kind smell.
The only thing I don't necessarily like about it, is the fact that the smell goes away pretty quickly. It's not as strong as perfumes, but if your pair it with other fragrances, it will stay on the skin longer.
Mateja likes to top other fragrances with this one, so she gets a more coconut-ier version of those scents. She introduced me to a killer combo that I'll talk about now.
I love to pair it with Victoria's Secret Coconut Passion Fragrance Mist. Victoria's Secret is a more tropical vanilla stronger scent and Yves Rocher is a pure coconut. The combination of the two is like a cocktail of everything that's good about summer and sweet coconut desserts.
This has quickly become one of my favorite fragrances and the combination with Victoria's Secret fragrance mist is genius. I've been wearing it all summer and I'm sure I'll still be wearing it in the fall and winter. If you're a coconut freak buy this, I guarantee you, you won't be sorry. The price is ridiculous.
