Coconut-milk sunscreen. Specifically, Le Tan, which I love. It’s Australian. I actually based one of the perfumes on the idea of vacation. We included an accord of that coconut-milk sunscreen. It’s called Sydney Rock Pool, and it’s my go-to fragrance for beach vacations because it kind of smells like what you smell like after being at the beach all day.

Wow – I want to try Sydney Rock Pool, but it seems hard to find, even at places that carry Arquiste. I wonder why that is.

I think it was originally exclusive to someplace in Australia (?) So maybe is not in their normal distribution line…
Couldn’t resist… ???????
