About this deal

As each layer comes forward, you may notice intoxicating citrus notes, including bergamot, lime, orange and lemon. Read more about the condition New: A brand-new, unused, unopened and undamaged item in original retail packaging (where packaging is applicable).

I find this one to be a refreshing tropical- not warm and sticky its a great alternative to overly sweet coconut scents.This also has similarities to the Harajuku Lovers Pop Electric G but that one has a very heavy woodsy note in it that takes over the entire perfume. On my skin, the coconut and vanilla notes together blended into something like coconut cream that you add to curries.

I think both are aiming to be light, not-too-sweet coconut scents, and Friction is very successful at that, as many others have noted before me. FCUK Friction Her Eau De Parfum Spray is an enchanting composition that will drench your senses and leave a lasting impression. I was expecting coconut, vanilla, a hint of fruits, but all I've got was a cheap fruity smell that reminds me either of an air freshener or candy.

This is not something that is complex or mind blowing , but I don't feel that I need that all of the time. On the one side; this has the creamy coconut scent that's so difficult for me to find in perfumes (most smell like bug spray with my skin chemistry eg. I like fragrances that are comfortable and casual but it's hard to find ones that aren't over done or smell overly synthetic. It's pleasant and inoffensive but there is no lasting power and in disappears in five minutes on me.

Overall though, there’s just enough lotiony vanilla and coconut to make this pleasant when layered with another, less sweet, coconut body wash/lotion/perfume. It stays this way for a few hours before settling into the drydown, which consists of white musk, amber and sandalwood, toning down a lot of the sweetness. If I huff my arm, I can still detect a little bit of fruit, but mostly, what remains is a satisfying coconut, and much later, a delicious vanilla. I highly recommend the original friction perfume though Its one of the best budget perfumes I have bought and its a new must have for me.

Note, I don't see myself wearing this during winter, it is very much a spring/summer scent if you like to perfume yourself according to the seasons. This is a lovely summer scent, imagine sitting by the beach sipping a pina colada with the sun beating down on you. It was very sweet and fruity, but somehow not foody, and smelled great in the heat and salty beach air. Maybe a little bodyspray-ish but I honestly don't mind it, it's super cheap anyway and in my opinion far superior to the coconut bodysprays I have ever tried.
