Bath and Body Works Fresh Coconut & Cotton Fine Fragrance Mist Review
April 13, 2022
Last month, I wrote a post about the Bath and Body Works fine fragrance mists I purchased. I wanted to write reviews about them, but I was unable to due to technical difficulties and other distractions in my daily life. Even though I’m posting my reviews later than I wanted to, I still wanted to share my thoughts about the fragrances.
The first fragrance I wanted to review is Coconut and Cotton. Like with all the fragrance I purchased, I really liked this fragrance in store, but I didn’t know if I would like it once I tried to wear it in my daily life.
According to Bath and Body Work’s website, the fragrance’s scent is described as…
What it smells like: laundry day on the islands.
Fragrance notes: coconut, coastal breeze and beachside cotton.
The fragrance is a light fragrance with tropical scent notes. To me, the scent reminds me of a bedroom with fresh, clean sheets that looks out onto a beach with coconut palm trees all around. I really like the scent a lot, and enjoy smelling it, but for me, wearing it was not as easy as I thought it would be.
Since the website for the fragrance describes what it smells like as “laundry day on the islands”, it was hard for me to enjoy wearing the fragrance as a fragrance on my body. When I wrote it as a fragrance on me, it smelled like I got finished with the laundry and sprayed a coconut scented body spray or fine fragrance mist on me. It didn’t make me think I was a person on a beach surrounded by clean, fresh laundry. It made me think I was someone who finished doing laundry on a beach.
My major problem with the fragrance it that my mist is meant to be worn on the body, not as a home fragrance such as a Wallflower or room spray. It would be perfect for me to use around the house. If I purchased it in that version, I would enjoy it even more. Unfortunately, I own it in the fine fragrance mist version.
I really like this fragrance because it is light, easy to smell, lasts more than two hours on the skin, and is perfect for spring and summer months, but I highly recommend considering if you will like this fragrance on your body or as a home fragrance. If you want to own the fragrance but cannot find it as a Wallflower or room spray, then you can use the fine fragrance mist as a spray for fabrics, such as bedding and pillows. Since I like the scent as a home scent than a body scent, I sometimes like to use the spray on fabrics to make the smell nice.
