Rated 3.23 out of 5 stars
So I purchased two of these - one for my 25 year old daughter- she would rate it 5 ⭐️'s hands down and I would rate it 3⭐️'s so I compromised on 4⭐️'s!
It was not the beachy coconut scent I was hoping for- but more of a sticky sweet smell. Not the case with my daughter- she found it to be perfectly beachy I've decided the scent that Cote do Paradis throws must have something to do with your personal body chemistry- when I sniffed it on my daughter- it did indeed smell so much nicer than it did on me! Obviously it's hard to tell how something will smell virtually but I can say that at best you'll absolutely love Core du Paradis if the sweeter scents of a tropical paradise are your thing- and at worst it will be just fine if you're more in between like I am!
I ordered the rollerball because the perfume doesn't last long. This scent is very unique and lovely, like a summer/beachy/ incense scent that is soooooo relaxing. The oil lasts much longer on the skin than the perfume. Its soft, not strong. The only downfall is when I received it, it had leaked into the cardboard tube it came in. I thought maybe its cause it got shook up in the mail during delivery. I cleaned it up, but it still leaks when upside down so its defective. Hopefully the next one doesn't leak out.

Didn't like the smell. Really disappointed after trying it. 11 11 is my favorite and was hoping to have a better experience with this scent. Really bad smell.

The scent is fantastic - an unexpectedly fresh whipped vanilla with a bright opening. I almost sense a little eucalyptus in the beginning. My only disappointment is that it doesn't last long and within a couple hours I can't smell it anymore even with my nose right up against my skin.

A pleasantly creamy, sweet, beachy gourmand.
To anyone interested in this scent, I would strongly recommend the roller ball over the eau de parfum both due to overall better value and lasting power. Using the roller ball on the neck and other pulse points gets decent projection relative to L&S's, though you may need to reapply within 3-ish hours if you want more than a skin scent.

Reminds me of summertime. Warm, nostalgic, comforting scent. Highly recommend. #sweepstakes

I absolutely love the scent. I bought the oil roll on because I thought the oil would last longer. I roll it on and it seems to dissipate quickly.

Very natural scent, perfect for the beach / tropical vacation. I find the body oil lasts longer and has a very nice dry down scent.

I love this oil. 11 11 is my absolute favorite, and this was a perfect addition to my collection going in to the spring and summer. So tropical and soothing, it's lovely for vacation or just to pretend ;)

A must have in my arsenal of Lake & Skye. Subtle earthy notes with a hint of sweet very diverse profile.

Always in my bag! The perfect everyday fragrance oil.

This rollerball isn't it. She's not the one babe. I bought this with such high hopes and it let me all the way down. This fragrance doesn't smell like summer or coconut. It's powdery and floral.

#sweepstakes This fragrance brought me right back to my favorite place---vacation at the beach! Warm days, warm sun...water, coconut oil, salt air and sea breezes! It lasted all day and I got many compliments. The sample lasted for 3 uses! It is an amazing smelling product. I live in the Northeast and love the smell of summer all year round. Purchased full size! No regrets!!

The product itself was of good quality but the scent was not for me. Too heavy and smelled a lot like sunscreen.
In addition, the bottle broke when I tried to take out the stopper.
One star because Lake and Skye products are lovely. This one just wasn't for me. I will stick with 11:11.

I love this brand but it just smells like macadamia nuts to me!

Smells like coconut and not in a good way.

I was super excited to try this because I love 11 11 so when I saw they came out with a gourmand, I had to order it right away!! It was a big disappointment for me. It doesn't smell anything like what I picture the Riviera Beach to smell. It actually doesn't give off beach vibes at all. It has almost a play doh smell and gives me old lady vibes. Will be returning and sticking to 11 11.

LOVE LOVE LOVE! Clean soft scent.

I love this new scent. It is summer in a bottle. It is subtle, sweet and warm. My husband could smell the Palo Santo right away and he loves that. Wearing it right now!
Genevieve A. from USA
This one is sweet in every way. Smells a lot like a marzipan pastry on the beach. If you are a fan of 'unisex and woody' this does not fit those categories. I was definitely hoping for more palo santo/ beach wood notes. This is almonds, sunscreen, and sugar. Would be good for a beach loving teen but I prefer the other creations like Canyon Rose &11:11

It is good. 11:11 still reigns yet had this smelled of the notes given instead of sweet coconut, I'd like it much better. I bought it for the warmth. Incense-like. It is not.
Lo S. from USA
I bought this for myself and my sister. We love it! Sweet but subtle .. perfect for warmer days and nights.

Paying seven dollars for shipping and taking him two weeks. This is 2021
Amy from USA
In my opinion, this is not reflective of the notes that it is supposed to smell like. It smells like pina colada tanning oil from the '80s. This is not what I want to smell like... ever again. It smells fake and perfumey rather than a natural kind of scent.
