Dukhan is an Arabic word for smoke and also refers to a cleansing ritual involving what is known as “incense bathing.”

Our beloved LPMP team member Jennifer dreamed up the gorgeous idea of a bonfire coconut...realized with a variety of tropical coconut notes swathed in smoldering woodsmoke, enhanced with the dusky incensual richness of enticing Arabian oud. Can be worn by women and men; smells amazing on everyone!

Definitely not just a men's scent! It's actually not masculine at all on me. Being a fan of Sugared Bonfire, when I saw this was supposed to smell like a coconut bonfire, I had to have it. It smells exactly like you smashed a coconut into sugared bonfire and made it a bit smokier and more mysterious. That would probably be from the old, which gives it more depth and sensuality. The smoke is more of a veil of smoke, at least on me - much like Sugared Bonfire - so if you are a fan of that one and you're obsessed with coconut like I am, you'll love this.

This is not masculine on me either.  I get coconut, but not as much (any?) smoke as I was hoping for.  It teeters  on turning into plastic baby doll, but does not go full blown plastic.  I think this is a made in heaven match for Beth's Blushing Milkmaid.  I've been going back and forth between thinking I need lots of bottles, to thinking I'm good with a trial vial, so will give it some time to rest, and then get a better feel for how it works for me.  

 

Edited 14 hours later to add an update:

 

i put put some on after showering tonight, and the smoke and oud are showing up more. I’ll give it a true break for a few days, once it has a chance to get over its jet lag, I’ll give it another go :)

To me this is that classic "husky dusky" kind of "black" or toasted coconut, the type which can have tanning oil-type connotations.  And I imagine you achieve that kind of effect by blending coconut accords with darker notes, so as a blending this turned out really lovely if you enjoy that kind of thing.  It's definitely the type of coconut a guy could wear because the sweetness of it is rather muted by the other elements.  It wears fairly smooth and consistent on me in terms of having a linear unified quality, no one characteristic stands out more than any other.

This is like 1/3 husky coconut, 1/3 suntain oil, and 1/3 coconut milk. I don't get any of the oud or smoke, maybe it needs to age. It is very nice and not masculine to me, but it goes a little plasticky so I have mixed feelings about it. If it didn't turn to plastic I would need a full bottle so I am kind of glad it does.

This smells exactly like what it's supposed to - a coconut bonfire! The smoke is subtle, it doesn't take over the scent, which I was afraid of. The coconut is warm and rich and deep - I don't think it's masculine, but at the same time, I want to smell it on a man! I'll put this one out for Mr Perfect to try too 🙂

Luna recommended this as a scent reminiscent of LP: Exotica. I will get a sample, but wanted to ask other forums how they think the two compare. Thanks!
