coconut, coconut and more coconut!

Finally have a whipped shea recipe that I am IN LOVE WITH! However, the scent is not pleasing. I've tried vanilla and a black coconut and some scents from candlepro.com, but I'm not in love with any of them. My fave so far is coconut, but I'd like it to have a fruitier coconut scent, preferably something like the smell of Hello Hydration.

Does anyone have suggestions on finding a super auromic coconut scent? I need to know brand and where you bought it. I'm willng to order on the internet, but prefer an actual store if possible. However, I'm in Kansas City and we don't have alot of the stores they have in bigger markets.

    Yes I agree lemon & orange are great. I find the Spectrum Organic Virgin Coconut Oil has very coconuty smell.

    Thanks so much for your replies.

    I will try that. I have orange here at home and I have been thinking about lemon eo.

    Is there a specific brand of eo's that have best scents. I think I tried spectrum once, but can't recall if it was refined, unrefined. I can never remember when I get to the store which is the more scented.

    Thanks again!

    The EO's I use are called NOW and the Spectrum coconut brand I use is the one for hair & skin. I purchase all these items from GNC.

    But strong scents can be a good thing and a bad thing, a mild coconut oil is not bad actually it leaves the way for your perfume to do its job :) Just my two cents in the scent issue!
