If there’s one scent associated with summer, it’s tropical coconut. It automatically makes you think of beaches, palm trees and relaxing in the summer sun. But, if the sickly-sweet fragrance makes you gag, you can still partake with these coconut-scented beauty products that take a more sophisticated approach. Below, we’ve rounded up some of the best coconut-scented beauty products you need to try this summer to get that perfectly light and sweet fragrance.
A quintessential summer scent with bergamot, amber, white florals and vanilla intermingling with coconut. Think of it like a grown-up coconut. (Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess, $65 for 3.4oz, Esteelauder.com)
Add this all-natural coconut and vanilla powder to a bath to create a relaxing milky tub full of skin-softening treatments. You’ll emerge smelling like a very softly coconut and vanilla-scented summer newborn babe. (Herbivore Botanicals Coconut Bath Soak, Available on Amazon)
Maybe vanilla is the key to softening coconut’s robustly tropical notes because this natural deodorant from Lavanila is a dream of soft powdery vanilla with a sweet tinge of summery coconut. As far as natural deodorants go, this one is divine. (Lavanila Vanila Coconut Deodorant, Available on Amazon)
Glossier just dropped a summer-ized version of their popular balm, which multitasks as a general skin salve. Now your lips (and elbows and cuticles and dry patches…) can enjoy the all-purpose nourishing moisture with a subtle coconut scent. (Glossier Coconut Balm Dotcom, Available on Amazon)
Other than being amazingly nourishing for thick, curly, kinky, or just dry hair, Shea Moisture’s Coconut & Hibiscus line smells divinely warm and subtly scented like a vacation. It’s almost like your hair took a trip to French Polynesia for a reboot and came back lush and revived. (Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Shampoo, Available on Amazon)
Despite this all-natural lotion having coconut as the main attraction, it smells more like fresh fruit than a piña colada. The lotion itself is amazingly hydrating and fast absorbing, leaving a silky—not sticky—layer on your skin. The scent itself fades to a really subtle powdery after-scent when wearing for about an hour or two so you won’t have to worry too much about it interfering with your clothes/fragrance. (Mountain Ocean Coconut Skin Trip Moisturizer, Available on Amazon)
