I quite like the scent of the dry oil from this Monoi line, but it doesn't stay long on my skin, so I decided to try out the Eau de Toilette version, hoping I could combine the oil and perfume in order to enjoy the beautiful fragrance a little longer.I also ordered the scented, non-alcoholic body mist version. A non-alcoholic, scented moisture spray would be a great idea if you wanted to quickly refresh your fragrance any time under the midday sun, and give your skin a nice treat.Well, I'm afraid I couldn't like neither the EDT nor the body mist. The body mist had a strangely green undertone, perhaps the Aloe Vera, which itself I don't dislike, but here it was crashing with the sweetness of vanilla and tiare. As for the EDT, tiare, ylang-ylang, vanilla and coconut are the listed notes, but I mainly get a screechy coconut smell, not the almost fruity, soft kind of Yves Rocher's Coconut EDT, but a synthetic one. Along with this, there is a harsh note I can't define, perhaps vanilla/ylang-ylang gone wrong. It didn't smell like suntan lotion on me, nor like the dry oil which has a very rich, sweet and flowery aroma, but something shrill and thin at the same time. I suppose it lacks a solid base to my nose. After about 10 minutes, it left a faint trace with reminiscence to the body oil, but then, I could also just apply the dry oil. I was hoping to get a creamy and full-bodied, summer fragrance, so am disappointed with the EDT overall. It might work on a person with the right 'skin chemistry', and for the low price point when on sale, it would be a great bargain.

Totally agree with highrise's view. I just spent a month in France, visiting my family. I always look for things that are not available where I live, like Bourjois, and Yves Rocher.This is a very pleasant summer scent. Monoi can be a bit cloying, if not well done. This one is perfect. It's sweet and creamy, but light at the same time. It's a great alternative to the usual, overdone, unimaginative citrusy scents that they bombard us with, every summer.

The tropical/beachy category of scent was conspicuously missing from my collection...never one that I actively sought out. The recent flurry around Guerlain's Terracotta parfum started me on a trip down that rabbithole, and while I missed out on the Guerlain, I just had to have something along those lines.Yves Rocher is a wonderful French brand of fragrance, skincare and makeup that is very affordable and high quality. L'Eau des Vahines is a textbook tropical beach scent - it fairly explodes upon first spray, but slowly turns into a creamy, sweet floral. Lots of white flowers, coconut and vanilla - the tuberose and ylang-ylang are quite prominent. This lovely scent is all about happy, bright laid-back holiday time. Very uplifting, summery-sweet and cheery!
