Coconut Oil Gardenia (Tiare)
Contains perfume :(
I looked at all the versions of this brand of coconut oil - I really wanted a jasmine coconut oil, but the only brand I could find had mineral oil. So gardenia sounded good. All the other versions of this brand have essential oils or flower extracts. Somehow I missed that this one contains "parfum." I would not have bought it if I noticed that. It smells very nice, but it is overpowering. I don't know when or how I will ever use it because of the perfume issue. Also, the dispenser is useless. The top has a point like it is supposed to stop up a hole through which to squirt the melted oil, but there is no dispenser so you just have to pour it out of the large opening which is too large to dispense the oil melted, and not large enough for unmelted. I wouldn't mind trying one of the other versions from this brand, but I regret this purchase.

Monoi Tiare Coconut Oil Gardenia (Tiare)
This was a gift for my grandmother and an impulse buy. She loves Gardenia. I spoke to her over the weekend and she told me she loves it. It makes her skin soft and smells pretty. Her only quibble is that it is a little hard to get out of the bottle (first not enough then too much came out) but she said the product itself made her skin feel very soft. She loves it. That is good enough for me. I will buy more of it for her.

Didn't work for me but...
it's still a great product! I have a VERY sensitive scalp and just about anything causes dermatitis. Unfortunately, this product spurred it on for me. It sure is a bummer because it works great and smells wonderful! Glad to see it is not tested on animals and has no harmful ingredients. :)

I have long used plain coconut oil as a moisturizer and hair conditioner, and I was hoping this product could fill the same bill with the bonus of a pleasing fragrance -- and it does! The scent is lovely. Strong enough to enjoy, but not overpowering. And of course the oil does its job of moisturizing quite well. The price is right, too. I'll be ordering more.

I'm a fan.
I ordered all three of the fragrances available, and This scent is nice. I love the coconut oil that acts a terrific carrier oil for this fragrance. I will purchase it again.

I love ths product so much I wish it came in LITRES! Those who know or love the ridiculously expensive Monoi de Tahiti oil by NARS can help their wallet heal with this oil. I use it in my hair nightly (a little goes a long way) and it smells so yummy. For irresistibly soft touchable skin, rub on dripping wet skin after a shower and let yourself air dry as long as possible (don't towel dry). Your skin will dry velvity smooth and you'll smell like Tahiti. Seriously, don't do this if you don't want to be thouroughly caressed!!! The only thing I'm not crazy about is that "fragrance" is one of the ingredients, sigh.

French Coconut Oil
This product was orderedx out of curiousity. You know...the stuf that killed the cat. it was the only product I have ever ordered where I could not figure out how it was to be used. The directions were in French, so no help there. Its taste was something not intended for consuption. It did not serve as a carrier oil and after sevear months I've still to crack the code for its use.
My ratings above are virtually meaningless, except for the fact, I could not determine its use, it may have scored perfect 5s across the board

I love this stuff! It smells really good, and the scent stays on your body for a very long time. I love how it makes my skin feel and look.
