NOT TO BE USED BY WOMEN WHO ARE PREGNANT OR NURSING.
Island Blackstrap features a tropical explosion of creamy coconut, top
notes of fine dark rum and pineapple juice and a touch of oak paired
with a variety of sugar processes: pure sugar cane juice, rich and
sticky blackstrap molasses, simple syrup and sticky caramelized sugar.
Infused in between these dominant notes are accent notes of saltwater
and a medley of tropical flowers: frangipani absolute, ylang ylang
absolute and Tahitian gardenias infused in coconut oil. This perfume is
not heavily floral but rather the flowers carried on the breeze add to
the tropical atmosphere. The saltwater is likewise very soft and simply
takes the edge off the heavy sweet notes, as does the touch of oak and
vetiver in the base.
This perfume is a dark rich gourmand with
tropical elements. The opening smells like the creamiest most decadent
pina colada which gives way to an explosion of sugar laced with soft
flowers, the touch of sea spray and wood notes. The rum accord contains a
blend of synthetics as well as a Jamaican rum CO2. The dry down is very
sweet with various sugar varieties, creamy coconut, very soft oak and
vetiver and the faintest trace of saltwater.
