Coconut Macaroon

Toasted coconut is what you get with this cheery little gourmand from LaVanila Laboratories. Warm macaroons fresh from the oven, actually. It's very foodie for me. No flowers, no sun tan oil vibe, creamy/woody rather than sugar sweet (thanks to the sandalwood) and very long lasting: for those who like this sort of scent well done then Vanilla Coconut must surely be a winner.

But given that wearing Vanilla Coconut is not really about the journey, let alone nuanced complexity, be warned: if you're not up to, or in the mood for, smelling like a coconut macaroon all day then you'll soon be scrubbing! Though I was quite taken with it at first, wearing Vanilla Coconut for a couple of days (alternated with the more delicate Indian Coconut Nectar by Pacifica) brought me to the realization that I'd rather eat coconut than wear it.
