In 2016, beauty label Carol's Daughter est. 1993 launched a new fragrance called Monoi eau de toilette, "Inspired by the lush shores of French Polynesia,..."...
The scent is also inspired by one of their hair products. The brand used to have a richer collection of fragrances, which is now discontinued. The only perfume from the old library still available as an online exclusive is Almond Cookie, to which we called attention previously. It is a very good gourmand composition.
Monoi edt opens on top notes of gardenia, bergamot, petit grain, eucalyptus, grape, a marine accord, and coconut; the heart blends orange blossom, jasmine, tuberose, rose, anise, and lily of the valley; the base rests on guaiacwood, cedarwood, balsam, sandalwood, spiced vanilla, and musk.
Available on HSN.
