"Brother bought a coconut, he bought it for a dime
She was the lime in the coconut, she drank 'em bot' up
She put the lime in the cocoon, she calls the doctor, woke I'm up'”
The Coconut song (1971) by Harry Nilsson – to listen in summer in front of the sea, lying under the stars on a hammock, with a piña colada in hand - immediately plunges us into a sweet and sensual, occasionally tender, mood, evoked by the coconut notes. #dolcevita
Coconut oil has a milky side and is used in perfumery to round off fragrances, without giving them the sweet or amber side that is typical of other base notes, such as vanilla or amber.
In Polynesia, the coconut plant grows on soils of coral origin and is used to produce refined copra oil, where Tiare flowers macerate. This maceration process gives rise to Monoï oil, which partly shares the scent of coconut and is widely used in perfumery. #coco #milky #seduction
Coconut oil is also well known because of its many benefits: it has a moisturizing effect on the skin (by restoring a good cohesion between cells), a nourishing effect on the hair (since it restructures the outside of the hair fiber), a slimming effect for the body and a balancing action on the hormonal system.
Difficult to smell this raw material without being seduced...
