Does anyone know where I can find perfume that smells like..

A Lei? Having a fabulous time in Maui ( and will be back to post a Trip Report!)! Loved our lei greeting and have fallen in love with the scent of my lei. Anyone know if I might be able to find a perfume like it somewhere in Maui?

Well - what kind of lei is it? What kind of flower? You can go into any ABC store and find perfume and soap. But I like the Terra Nova line at Macy's. Sand People usually has a great selection as well ... but really, you can find perfumes and soaps anywhere. Island Soap (made on Kauai) is easy to find.

BUT - read the labels. There is alot of perfumes and such imported from China in the stores.

Aloha,

The Sand People are some really good people. I would check out the store for sure.

Could possibly have been the Tuberose or the Plumeria that was on your lei.

Aloha

You are getting some wonderful suggestions from the other posters..

Just a thought however....try and keep it Fragrance -free on the Airplane out of respect for your fellow Travellers.

Take a look at www. malie.com

They have wonderful fragrances. More subtle and natural than some of the really cheap stuff you find at the ABC stores.

I really like the Malie Koke'e scent which is a fresh green scent typical of men's malie leis. Pikake and frangipani ( also known as Hawaiian plumeria) are the typical lei scents. I would stay away from tuberose. It can be very overpowering in small doses, just like gardenia. Tiare is also another typically tropical fragrance, related to gardenia, but lighter and fresher, to me.

I also like the fragrance line by LucyB. Their Pink Frangipani is one of my favorite tropical-type fragrances.
