Comptoir Sud Pacifique Bring the Tropics Home with Vanille Pineapple & Vanille Citrus EDT. Fashiontribes Beauty Buzz FRAGRANCE Blog

I don’t know if you are a fragrance junkie- many don’t like to have a stable or revolving table of fragrances to choose from. Some people like to stick with one signature scent. I used to be that way– until I became a beauty editor and then suddenly, there was NO turning back.

I love trying new fragrances– particularly those from  Comptoir Sud Pacifique.  CSP as it is affectionately known by its fan base has a slew of tropically based scents that are delicious, fragrant and enchanting.  Two of their newest ones are vanilla-based scents (a base for which they are rightfully famous)  that are an unusual blend of tropical scents mixed with vanilla into intoxicating blends that are sure to please most everyone  who loves fruity scents or vanilla scents or both!

VANILLE CITRUS is an unusual blend of citrus and vanilla and some might think that it wouldn’t work but CSP has worked its fragrance magic and created an "experience" in a spray can.  Travel to the Caribbean and South of France  and you would get a similar sort of feel–particularly with the blend of chocolate, vanilla cream and sugared milk so tied to the French lifestyle. It’s light, playful, fun and fresh. Definitely something great for a light daytime (or subtle evening) scent.

Top notes:  Candied lemon peel, brazilian orange, blackcurrant syrup
Heart Notes:  Tahitian vanilla, hibiscus flower, sweet rose jam

Base Notes: Vanilla cream, sugared milk, chocolate

Available at Sephora, for 1.6 oz/50 ml –$49.00

VANILLE PINEAPPLE  is definitely a  favorite of mine. I love the fresh tang of pineapple and I am known as a "pineapple addict"  around my place. If  there is pineapple in a recipe or a drink, typically I have it! So this was a "slam dunk" choice for me. Distinctly tropical with a rich feeling of Hawaii (and I so love being in Hawaii eating fresh pineapple too), this is a luscious tangy fragrance that is sure to please and is underscored with a vanilla cream richness. Certain other notes like passionfruit underscore the fruity feel while cinnamon, frangipani and musk create a more exotic scent so that it’s not overly sweet or fruity but has that "bite" that  certainly will wear well throughout the day –or night. It’s like bringing the tropics home with you .. and it’s lush scent is intoxicating.

Top Notes: Pineapple
Heart Notes:  Passionfruit, vanilla cream, cinnamon, frangipani
Base Notes: Vanilla sugar, coconut milk, musk

Available at select stores including 1.6 fl oz/50 ml –$49.00

Go check out these luscious scents. They are the ideal choice for summer and will make your hot, humid days seem much more tolerable. Close your eyes, breathe deeply and experience the tropical locales.

See you at the CSP Counter!
