With the first official day of summer come and gone, I find myself reaching for scents that evoke the tropics. The smell of the salty sea, the taste of sweet coconut, and fragrant tiare flowers are just a few senses that, for me, evoke the type of daydream that we can find ourselves slipping into from time to time.
Because the tropics are such a huge inspiration for me, I've found that these types of scents have become my signature in a way. While I do wear other types of floral scents, I'm still drawn back to the soft and sensuous smell of a humid day in the tropics. At the moment these are all of the tropical scents that I own, but I'm excited to add more (hopefully, soon) from Coqui Coqui and Monoi Tiare Tahiti.

"It's on days like these--
when the sun is hot,
and the air is sweet.
when the palm trees dance
and the sand beneath my fingertips
is cool to the touch."
