Replica Beach Walk is a light, creamy coconut and warm floral, beach-type fragrance.

This is summer in a bottle!

If you’re a fan of beachy, coconut, sun tan lotion fragrances, this one is worth a try!

Replica Beach Walk does a fantastic job of creating a nostalgic summer, warm beach, laying in the sun type of vibe. This is a light and airy yellow floral, creamy coconut, and musk fragrance.

Beach Walk is very much a solar floral and coconut fragrance. Some pick up on the citrus in the opening, but I immediately get the tropical coconut and yellow floral notes. 

The coconut milk note is light, creamy, and sweet, and the floral notes aren’t overpowering, but add a perfect warm tropical touch.

If you’re a fan of beachy, coconut, sun tan lotion fragrances, this one is worth a try!

The longevity and projection of Replica fragrances tends to range from below-average to average, and Beach Walk is no different. I get around 5 hours of wear with moderate projection for the first few hours.

Beach Walk is a very easy-to-wear fragrance, light and inoffensive, making it very versatile.

This is a fresh and creamy coconut balanced by the warm solar floral notes and salted musk.

This perfume oil has impressive longevity.

Nest Balinese Coconut Perfume Oil is a beautiful and very tropical coconut perfume oil. This is a fresh, salty, tropical floral, warm solar coconut fragrance.

The coconut note here isn’t artificial or overly sweet. It is a fresh and creamy coconut that is balanced by the warm solar floral notes and salted musk.

Nest Balinese Coconut Perfume Oil is a great choice to wear alone or to use a base for layering. 

It has impressive longevity, lasting 7+ hours. When worn alone it does sit quite close to the skin, with very subtle projection. This can be a good thing, if you are looking for a more subtle fragrance, or you can layer it with another perfume for better projection.

Nest Balinese Coconut Perfume Oil is cruelty-free, vegan, and free from formaldehyde, parabens, phthalates. One perk to buying directly from the Nest website is that a complimentary sample is provided when you buy a full-size fragrance. You can try the sample first and if you don’t like it, return the full-size for a full refund. [1]

  • Notes: Creamy Coconut, Tropical Tiare Blossom, Salted Musk, Solar Frangipani Accord

✓ Pros

  • Luxurious, tropical, solar floral coconut fragrance
  • Great for layering

Lattafa Qaed Al Fursan Unlimited is a high-quality fragrance at an incredibly low price.

This is a luxurious, smooth and creamy coconut fragrance.

Lattafa Qaed Al Fursan Unlimited reminds me of a coconut lotion in a high-end spa.

Lattafa Qaed Al Fursan Unlimited is not only a fantastic budget option, it is one of my favorite coconut perfumes! This fragrance smells much more expensive than it is.

Qaed Al Fursan Unlimited is a luxurious, milky, coconut fragrance with a hint of citrus, pineapple, and tropical floral notes. The musk and sandalwood notes make this a very smooth and creamy fragrance.

This fragrance reminds me of one of my all-time favorite moisturizers that I used to use back in the days of tanning beds. I believe it was made by Australian Gold, and the scent is very high-end luxury spa.

Don’t judge this fragrance based on the first spray! The first time I tried Qaed Al Fursan Unlimited, I didn’t like it very much and I quickly became nose-blind to it. After letting it sit for a few weeks and trying it again, it became a top favorite.

Qaed Al Fursan Unlimited is quite versatile, as it is strong enough to be noticed, but not overpowering. While it does have summer vibes, the musk and sandalwood notes also make it work year-round. Longevity is average, I get around 5 – 6 hours, but for the price, you can easily reapply as needed.

  • Top Notes: Coconut, Citruses, Pineapple
  • Middle Notes: Ylang Ylang, Jasmine, Frangipani
  • Base Notes: Vanilla, Musk, Sandalwood

✓ Pros

  • So cheap!
  • Luxurious, creamy, musky coconut lotion scent

✗ Cons

  • Some find it too synthetic

Kayali Utopia Vanilla Coco is a unique coconut fragrance.

This is a sweet and creamy coconut fragrance with a hefty dose of white florals and patchouli.

Utopia Vanilla Coco is very versatile and great for year-round wear.

Kayali Utopia Vanilla Coco is a change from the usual beachy, sunscreen takes on coconut perfumes. Utopia Vanilla Coco is a heavier fragrance, with a hefty dose of white florals and patchouli, making it perfect for year-round wear.

The opening of Utopia Vanilla Coco is a blend of thick white floral notes and creamy, vanilla coconut. As with many Kayali fragrances, the ever-present patchouli is blended into the background, but very noticeable.

As Utopia Vanilla Coco dries down it becomes lighter and sweeter, as the floral notes fade and it transitions into a sweet and creamy vanilla, patchouli, coconut scent.

Although this has a “heavier” feel to it than the beachy coconut perfumes, it isn’t strong or overpowering, so it is quite versatile, and will work well anytime of the year. The longevity is average to below-average, around 4 hours, also lending to its versatility.

  • Top notes: Honeysuckle, Pear Blossom, Italian Lemon, Coconut
  • Middle notes: Jasmine, Gardenia, Tuberose, Ambrette
  • Base notes: Sandalwood, Patchouli Heart, Vanilla Bourbon, Musks

✓ Pros

  • Unique coconut fragrance, a change from the beachy coconut perfumes
  • Versatile, works well year-round

✗ Cons

  • Some don’t enjoy the white floral or patchouli notes
  • Poor longevity

How to Choose the Best Coconut Perfume

When choosing a new perfume, consider your budget, when and where you plan on wearing the fragrance, and what kind of longevity you are looking for.

Price

Most of the perfumes listed here are priced similarly to average designer fragrances. The outliers being the budget pick, Lattafa Qaed Al Fursan Unlimited, which is a high-quality fragrance at a very low price, and the high end designer pick, Tom Ford Soleil Blanc. 

Season and Occasion

These coconut perfumes all have strong summer vibes, and most are very versatile, working well for all occasions. 

If you’re looking for a more formal fragrance, Tom Ford Soleil Blanc is a good choice. For the office, The 7 Virtues Coconut Sun has a clean, professional vibe to it. 

A few of these perfumes also have aspects that make them good choices for year-round wear, such as Kayali Utopia Vanilla Coco, Lattafa Qaed Al Fursan Unlimited, and Tom Ford Soleil Blanc.

Always experiment and wear whatever feels good to you, regardless of season or occasion!

Longevity

These coconut perfumes all have average longevity and decent projection, with some performing a bit worse and some a bit better.

Personally, I tend not to use longevity as a criteria when choosing a fragrance. I base my selection on the scent itself, and if needed, I reapply throughout the day, or layer with a longer-lasting fragrance.
