This is a nice body oil. It smells similar to Nars' body glow, and I have that one too, but this scent is a bit softe,r and I like that. It has great ingredients and leaves my skin soft without being too greasy.

One sniff was all it took for me to fall in love with this spray! I love that the scent stays and it's cheaper than a parfum. I also purchased the new Azuree Soleil fragrance spray which has the same scent without the oil. I spoke with an EL account executive at the counter who told me that the fragrance spray would be sold in summer only, BUT the oil will be carried year round from now on. Yay!

LOVE this fragrance. I normally dont' wear perfume because I never found anything that worked with my body chemistry. Just about everything I've tried has smelled great in the bottle, but once one me, it was horrible. My husband would get headaches from the different fragrances I have tried. this was the only one he actually complimented me on. It just came out this summer but I hope they haven't already discontinued it because I couldn't find it at counters the other day and it was on sale for half price online. Maybe it's just a summer fragrance.

LOVE this product! I got so many compliments wearing this. The coconut and beachy notes remind me of a tropical vacation. It also seems like a very versatile fragrance as my mum loved it also and ended up buying some herself. (Normally we do not agree at all on fragrances!) It also leaves a nice sheen on the skin. I would recommend this over the cologne spray of the same fragrance as for some reason, the same scent smells artificial in that form. The oil just seems to keep the fragrance "warmer".

I really hope that EL comes out with this every summer, because it is my all-time favorite perfume, ever. It's that good. I'm thinking of maybe even bringing it out this winter when I'm hating the cold Northeast U.S. weather. Anyone who knows of similar perfumes that would be more suitable to cold weather, please let me know.

This smells so good... this just smells so good! I think I have to go buy the eau de toilette too, or source another bottle of this body oil at a ridiculously inflated price on eBay! I was trying on a sample of Eau d'Hadrien this morning, and then this arrived in the mail, I just had to spritz some on and guess what? Eau d'Hadrien is gone, baby, gone! This has as much lasting power as conventional perfume, if not more...

I adore the Eau Fraiche of this product and was hoping the dry oil would prove a more subtle, long lasting version of it. For the most part it is--the coconut and gardenia notes are bright and present at the start, just like the fragrance version. On me, though, this faded waaaaaay too fast and now it's nearly gone. Oddly enough, the myrrh and sandalwood that are distinct to me in the drydown of the fragrance version, in this sort of combine to form ANISE of all things and a sort of synthetic smelling one, at that. I can tell from other reviews this doesn't happen to most people, though, and I do love the texture of the dry oil--very moisturizing but just melts into the skin. I wish I didn't have this strange anise smell, because I just adore the product otherwise!

Here's how this went down: I was at the mall and was just basically looking around. Usually, I completely ignore the Estee Lauder counter. I dislike all the fragrances and don't care for the packaging on the makeup. I think I've only ever bought one or two EL items and whatever they were, they didn't become staples for me. So anyway I'm milling about the Clarins counter when this very pretty powder blue display catches my eye from across the aisle. It was the Azuree lotion (I think the body tint?) I thought, wow, great packaging, too bad it's Estee Lauder. And on a whim, I picked up the tester of body oil and sniffed it... There has rarely been such an intense and immediate craving of more of a fragrance. I sprayed it on my arm, it was fascinating. I walked around the store, came back to the counter, and sprayed the Eau Fraiche Skinscent over the oil which had begun to dry down to a warm, round, milky sweetness with just the right amount of delicious flowery brightness. It reminds me a lot of Alfred Sung Sha, but it has many things that Sha does not, including great staying power. I fought this purchase. I walked out of Macy's despite the fact that the salesperson told me that they can't keep it in stock and she had just one bottle left of the oil and skinscent. I got in the car and started to drive away. At the last minute, I stopped the car and ran back in seven minutes before the mall closed and bought both the oil and the skinscent. I went home and took a second shower just so I could apply on clean skin before bed. Today I'm wearing just the oil and it's so lovely, so incredibly perfect that I can't properly express my delight. I generally have no use for "beachy" smells. I'm not crazy about gardenia (I smell lilac in this, though it's not listed as a note) and I normally don't care for body oils and I am just utterly devastated by this fragrance. I love it. I love it.

I tried this yesterday in Macy's. I actually like the smell of the body lotion in this scent, better than the fragrance spray. And the price, $29, was very reasonable too.
It is a nice scent, seemed very wearable, and somewhat unusual, true.
I liked it, I just don't think I would buy it.
Maybe if I tried a sample of it for a whole day I might like it enough to buy it. But I think there are other scents I like more.

Thanks to fellow MakeUpAlleyites, Iíve finally found my summer scent! After reading all the reviews, I knew this sounded exactly like what Iíve been searching for Ė a light, summery, beachy scent that doesnít make everyone think Iím wearing Coppertone as my perfume. Who would have thought that a bottle of perfume could whisk me off on a Tahitian vacation? This is such a lovely scent, and very popular, too! I hope Estee Lauder and Tom Ford arenít foolish enough to discontinue this fragrance considering how well itís been selling. Itís already sold out on the Estee Lauder website and was almost sold out at my local department store where they had only a few left. Iíve found just one other site online that still has them in stock (but only the Eau Fraiche Skinscent, not the body oil spray). I wish this lasted longer but I couldn't bring myself to deduct any lippies for that. I've found if you layer the Eau Fraiche over the oil spray, that helps.
I'd considered Bobbi Brown Beach, but this one sounded so much warmer and more rich. I canít describe Azuree Soleil any more eloquently and accurately than others have already, but I still had to write in to give a very enthusiastic thumbs up to this wonderful fragrance. If you're looking for the perfect beachy, summer scent, and can still find this, give Azuree Soleil a try. You won't be disappointed.

I LOVE THIS. I have been searching for years for a beachy scent and this is it. It blows everything else out of the water. It's a very warm and soft scent...it is perfect on my skin...not overpowering at all. As another reviewer pointed out, this is a scent that someone would really only detect if they were very close to you, which is definitely a big plus in my book. I like it because I don't feel like I'm wearing a fragrance; the oil is a great moisturizer and adds a beautiful sheen to the skin. This is an absolute favorite product; I found it at a discount store and I wish I had thought to stock up some more; I definitely plan to go back and hopefully they won't run out! UPDATE: I decided this is too fake smelling and a bit sickeningly sweet or something...not digging it anymore.

Gorgeous! I found it @ my local Holts after patiently waiting for it to come to regular dept stores I found out it was only available @ Holt Renfrew. I immediately called & put this & the eau fraiche on hold. This is exactly as others describe it: the perfect summer day @ the beach - a warm "skin" scent. I do find this that this lasts longer & is more woodsy & warmer then the eau fraiche, it stays close to the skin, it's something that someone would only smell if they were in close vicinity to you!
They only had 1 body oil left...boo! :'(

I want to marry Tom Ford, if for no other reason than this product.
Every time I smell this fragrance, it's like a shot of well-being and comfort wrapped in coconut and gardenia. I've jonesed for it for a while now, but my local department store isn't frequented enough for me to gauge a product's popularity; only after reading so many reviews did I realize the gem living down the street from me! I was spritzed the other night and wore it to dinner; I spent all night discretely sniffing my forearm! As the day progresses, though, I find it doesn't really settle, but stays pretty potent, so a little goes a long way! Additionally, it pulls a little spicy on me, which can be overwhelming at times. The trick is to not put it all over my body as a moisturizer, rather to use it sparingly.

It's hard to hate Tom Ford when he produces a genius product like Azuree Soleil. This scent doesn't scream SUMMER or BEACH or BANANA BOAT, but it softly whispers "sunshine," "coconut," "gardenia," and "saltwater". Azuree Soleil smells like Tahiti to me. This spray oil will give your skin a lovely sheen and the scent won't offend even your most fragrance-phobic friends or co-workers, since it whispers rather than shouts. The packaging is so beautifully retro Estee Lauder with a square glass bottle and golden lid. The price was amazingly cheap, and I'm wishing I had stocked up, because this is sure to become a signature fragrance for me for as long as I can get my hands on it. It's hard to think of anything that's not praiseworthy about this scent, except for its limited edition status.

I bought this oil last year and went back because I loved it so much and they were already sold out. So, I am so happy they brought it back!! I got another bottle and I hope they make this every summer. So nice on your legs to give them a sheen and the scent is out of this world. It smells like summer in a bottle!! Heck yes, I would buy it again and again!!

Okay, I finally found an Estee Lauder Fragrance that I love, but I think it's Limited Edition. Anyways, I LOVE IT!!!! So Beachy, Softer & SEXIER than Bobbi Brown Beach.
PLEASE ESTEE LAUDER.....KEEP THIS FRAGRANCE FOREVER!!!!!!

I tried this at the EL counter the other day. They were out of the perfume, which I really wanted. I went home and ordered the perfume and then decided I needed to get the body oil too (they were out of the oil online). So I went back and got the oil. She only had 3 left. I'm SO glad I did. This is my summer scent. It makes my skin soft and the scent lasts most of the day. I plan on layering the perfume over this. I definitely smell the notes of gardenia and coconut in this but it's not heavy. Overall this is a winner for me and the first Estee Lauder fragrance I liked.

I got this from a wonderful friend (Blanche, you rock, girl...!) and have been gradually entering a nice little obsession with it. This is a sensual, beachy, tropical fragrance with a hint of sweetness from the coconut which isn't cloying, and settles into this musky, sexy, warm summer day kind of languor on my skin which is irresistible...The oil is very nice, spreads evenly, not too greasy.
AS is a perfect summer fragrance in formulation and notes. I will definitely try this on my hair too to see if staying power is any better, since the oil on my skin tends to evaporate a tad too quickly. But that just gives me an excuse to apply more ;-D All I need is a margarita or mai tai and I can be transported to the islands when I wear this...And I am noticing that male attention is definitely heightened when I wear this fragrance, so that's a nice plus...I think this could be trouble for me..Definitely would purchase!
UPDATE: I am OBSESSED with this fragrance and now have 3 backups...it has become my signature fragrance! Every morning I spray some of the oil on my decolletage and abdomen, let that soak in and apply regular moisturizer to lock it in. In the evening, I apply it to my legs and decolletage and after a few minutes, layer it with the atomizer spray. LOVE this stuff!
UPDATE (4/8/08): I had to add this update now that I have tried Bronze Goddess, so I am pasting part of my BG review here...
BG is remarkably similar to AS, but AS has top notes of coconut and tiare and amber, while BG is a softer coconut which has been mellowed by orange blossom and mandarin (I don't get the citrus at all in AS). The tiare and jasmine open up in the heart of BG instead of at the top like AS does.
I sort of see AS as the more brazen older sister, and while BG resembles AS and probably borrows MU and clothing from big sis all the time, she's gentler, sweeter, with a slightly more feminine voice and a gentler touch than AS. They almost look like twins at first glance, but then you see the very subtle differences and can tell them apart.
Both AS and BG are lovely!
