If only this were a real ticket to Bali….
The Scent of Departure Bali is a tropical floral. It opens with lime blossoms and tiaré scented coconut based tanning oil. Bali differs from other tropical floral “beach” scents in the way that it’s more citrusy. The top is tarter than most with lemon, lime…all the citrus. With time, Bali becomes more of a warm, tanning oil skin scent. It smells like warm skin covered in product. The scent stays this way at the base, it just gets lighter and muskier. And there’s more vanilla.
I imagine that many people will smell Bali and think of a functional fragrance – tanning products, air freshener, etc. But, that seems to be the case with all “beach” scents. They smell beachy and like vacation because they remind of us products that we use on vacation.
Notes listed include tangerine, lemon, bergamot, tiare flower, frangipani, tuberose, ozonique flowers, vanilla, blonde wood and white musk. Launch date 2012. PERFUMER – Gérald Ghislain
Give Bali a try if you like beachy or tropical perfumes. Try it if you like Lavanila Vanilla Grapefruit, Mémoire Liquide Vacances Liquide, CK One Summer, Bath & Body Works Coconut Lime Verbena, Bond No. 9 Coney Island, and/or Creed Virgin Island Water. It’s unisex.
I find that projection and longevity are average for an EDT. I get about 5-8 hours of wear depending on how warm it is.
The 1.7 oz bottle retails for $45 at Beautyhabit.
