Most Helpful Positive Review It's Coconut!
Yes, it's coconut and some people say coconut is 'ubiquitous'.....however- This perfume is more salty-sweet and beachy. It is not a fruity floral with some coconut vibes in the middle. I actually would call Bronze Goddess 'nutty' because it smells like nutty coconut, not like sugared coconut.
This is probably the beachiest perfume in the world. And it really smells like sunscreen lotion/suntan oil infused beach air.
I liked the absence of super sweet ingredients, and the presence of myrrh, sandalwood and vetiver. Y'all need to try this one, it's memorable.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not a beachy scent at all!
I bought this because all the reviews were good and I love the scent of coconut and the beach. First lesson, never buy a scent that you didn't smell...I'm from Hawaii and I know what a coconut and the beach smells like. This scent certainly doesn't smell like it. It smells like GARDENIA's people. GARDENIAS. I like the smell of GARDENIA's but not on ME.

I love the fragrance. Sadly, within 30 minutes of applying it, the scent disappears. For the price it should last!
Absolutely my favorite scent!
Grace from New York
It's the kind of perfume when you get a whiff of it- it makes you happy & makes you happy. It reminds me of tanning lotion and being at the beach on a hot summer day. I think it lasts longer than what ppl are describing.... I'm so happy I purchased this. I personally think this smells WAY better than the perfume version of this... they don't smell remotely the same. SO good & exactly the kind of summer perfume I was looking for! BUY IT!
Smells Great- Doesn't Last :(
MDove from NOVA
I read what Eau Fraiche was online, it one of the lightest of the parfumes. I still went ahead as it appears that the bronze goddess eau de parfume had a different scent than the fraiche. The fraiche has a wonderful vanilla "beach" scent which is just what I was looking for. Unfortunately, the scent doesn't last-after a couple of hours I cant
smell it on my skin, even when I put my nose to my wrist. I like to have a scent throughout the day, especially when the scent makes me happy.
I ordered a different vanilla scent to wear this with, to enhance the scent, but will not purchase in the future. Feel like I just paid for water. 😕
Layer this with the Oil Spray

Estée Lauder Please Dont ever discontinue!!! I will buy it every Summer. My Summer go to.
Smells like vacation in a bottle
CrissyCK from Fort Wayne, IN
This has a vacation "tanning" floral smell. This makes a nice daytime summer scent. It's somewhat similar to Sun di Gioia, though I do prefer the Armani. Seeing as though it's discontinued, this is my runner up.
Great scent but not very long lasting
CE from Galveston, TX
My favorite scent! Just wished it lasted longer. Maybe lasts 2 hours.
Not what I was looking for
Christina from OH
I expected this to have more of a bright, summer-y feel to it based off of the fragrance notes. It comes off a little more mature than what I was looking for.
Loved it for my wife
King from Washington
Love this fragrance!
Kristi G from Grand Rapids, Mi
Adore this smell, it starts off with a slight musk that dissipates quickly. You are left with the smell of a long day at the beach with slight floral scent.
Favorite summer scent ever!
Mel S from NC
I absolutely love this! It's not too strong, and it smells like summertime in a bottle. I get compliments every time I wear it. Please don't ever stop making this!
All time favorite

I love it, my hubby loves it, please dont stop making this. Favorite out of all other perfumes.
Summer in a bottle!
Tricia-Lynn from Denham Springs, Louisiana
Love this scent. It is similar to Bobbi Brown Beach, I find it to be very "Coppertone" suntan lotion of my younger days but with more of an adult, sexy, musk type scent also. I love it! I'm complimented on it often. I also layer my fragrances and find this to be a nice layering fragrance with some of my other fragrances.
I love this purefume will but again

Buttercup from Memphis, TN
This did not smell good to me at all. It reminded me of stinky old lady perfume. I returned it.
Summer in a bottle
Tania from Wisconsin
Smells so good. Wish it lasted a little longer but I think it is still on par with other perfumes as far as that goes.
Great summer scent!
Kellie from TN
I read hundreds of reviews and finally decided to try this one! I really enjoy the smell. It's not over powering for daily summer use! I do wish it lasted a bit longer. Next summer I may try the edp.
One of a kind
Dreamingofbrasil from Orange County, CA
There are plenty reviews on this site as well as others that describe the notes of this fragrance pretty well. It truly is the EXPERIENCE and association of the beach magically bottled up. I fell in love with this scent about 6 years ago and have been a fan ever since then. I have a the 3.4 size oil, the older formula, without the shimmer, which is no longer available, and used to use it sparingly. Last year finally decided to get something more practical that I could use more frequently. Very happy with this light formula of the skinscent. Was a little hesitant about the longevity/power of it since many reviewers complain about it, but happy to say I LOVE the formula. For those who have issues with it not lasting long enough - get the body cream from the same line and layer it. The two combined are a perfect in the power of and longevity of the scent. Highly, highly recommend both this spray and the body cream. Worth every penny.
Smells like summer!
SarahVon from Florida
It smells wonderful, BUT, after 30 minutes I can not smell it anymore... which is extremely disappointing.
