A couple of years ago this used to be my signature scent. I smelled it in Sephora and really liked it. Then during a trip in New York City, I bought my first bottle. The next one I bought was cheaper because I found it on Ebay.

I've always liked the appearance of this fragrance. It is in the shape of a rounded column. In the center is a heart with outlines surrounding it. I like the colors of the glass, the cerulean blue and the pink. I especially like the name of the perfume and its transportive ability. When I spritz it, it makes me wonder, am I on Bora Bora today or Hawaii or Tahiti? I'm not sure which one I'm on at the moment, perhaps Fiji, but it doesn't matter. What matters is the perfume's way of taking my imagination to places unknown.

The eau de toilette has a lovely exotic tropical fruit scent. Picture yourself lying out on a beach with the most delicious iced cocktail, wearing a lei with sweet smelling flowers around your neck. That is what it smells like! These are the notes of the perfume: kaffir lime, dried victoria apple, coconut sorbet, physalis fruit, sugar candy, banana flower, Hawaiian salt blossom, sandalwood, powdery musk, and amber crystals, which is quite an alluring and complex combination of scents. The perfume starts off very intense when it is first sprayed on. There is a strong sweet and tart fruity smell. 4 hours later, I still smell it on my wrists but it smells like berries. It becomes more low-key, much more sweet with no tartness.
