I’m not a typically a fan of anything coconut scented because it reminds me of Bounty Chocolate – I love to eat Bounty’s and therefore it is not really my desire to wear it!
But, much to my surprise, I Love Coco from Honore de Pres is a scent that is abundant and modern. It plays on the freshness of young coconuts contrasted against Anis and Coriander seeds to create a very wearable scent. Love Coco was created by Olivia Giacobetti the nose behind some of the world’s most famous fragrance houses such as Diptique and L’artisan to name a few, and is part of her I LOVE NY range which also features I Love Carrots and VAMP NY.
Love Coco’s first impression is that of a young green coconut when you finally break through the husk to reveal cool fresh juice. A hint of Anis adds a striking contrast of earthy fennel that reaches out and grounds the lightness of young coconut. As this scent matures on your skin playful hints of Coriander seed surface and gently caresses the now delicate and very romantic summery scent of coconuts. If you could bottle up all the cliches of a romantic tropical island getaway, from white sandy beaches to sailing and swimming in crystal blue water with a cocktail awaiting your return from the sea then Love Coco is for you. It has the ability to inspire feelings of relaxation, relief and happiness.
I find Love Coco has great staying power like a true parfum, the fact that this is made by a very renowned perfumer, has eco certification with all scents derived from natural sources, packaging is all recyclable, contains no petrochemical products or synthetic perfumes, and is free of colouring agents and phtalates produced without animal testing or include anything of animal origins, Honore de Pres Love Coco is leading the way in organic perfumery.
