Coconut Love

When I love something, I become obsessed.

I once read somewhere that the sense of smell can trigger very powerful memories. To this day, the smell of coconut/suntan lotion brings me back to childhood trips to the beach with my parents. It also represents, for me, a 60's and 70's beauty ideal: the deep, dark suntan.

My coconut passion has since developped into a way of life. I like nothing better than lying out in the sun during summer months, slathered in coconut-scented suntan lotion.

I am constantly on the lookout coconut foods and products in stores, restaurants, supermarkets...

I never tire of the sensual, tropical smell and taste of coconut!
